    If the Core Energon Megatron is actually just the tank corpse (essentially just a zombie Armada Megatron), that could be the closest we get to a PS2-scaled Megatron that scales with a Commander Tidal Wave.

    Would they? I'd think a long nose truck would be a fair bit larger than an SUV.

    I find it surprising that you would say such a thing. 20230225_050648.jpg
    Though I've never seen a truck that looked anything like Armada Prime, so anything goes.

    Red Alert is a modified Nissan Patrol, Optimus Prime is a truck of made-up model so I think it can be forgiveable since the truck does not exist in real life.

    I blame the Red Cross getting antsy about their logo being used without permission around the time Armada came out.

    I’ll never forget how awesome it was seeing Optimus combine for the first time.

    I kinda figured the only draw back would be the one piece crotch plate, which does look pretty bad when posed tbh.

    At least the rest of it looks epic, definitely looking forward to em! I’m genuinely amazed this sort of a figure exists.

    Oh for sure, for me most of the AOE designs like looked better in plastic form (the ones that have no alt mode kibble). Like I think AOE/TLK Optimus looks way better as a TLK Voyager and the Caliber Prime Takara did because it at least had some kibble on it.

    I somewhat wished Optimus would be as tall as Menasor and Jetfire in Super Mode. But I think a head shorter than them also works as well. Optimus being able to be that high without being as traditionally big as Jetfire nor is a 5-man combiner like Menasor. He looks great fighting Menasor, truly as if they were rivals split apart by the Universe, I'm glad I got Menasor because him and Optimus squaring off looks great until Armada Megatron shows up.

    Phamduc, you're such a legend! Or should I say, Micron Legend! Keep up the good work my G, thank you so much for these pictures.
    Figure is lookin' epic, the only thing I dislike is that crotchplate in Super Mode, but I won't mind since I am displaying him in main bot mode until we get a new Jetfire.

    @Phamduc any chance you could get is a direct comparison between him and jetfire without the wide A stance?
