    The masses cry out for super modes.

    Wow never had much of an interest in Armada designs but looking at this thread I may have just changed my mind. Such a beautiful toy.

    This is better than any official base mode.

    I wouldn't be surprised if it's because Armada Optimus was their first exposure to the character of Optimus Prime. I know it was for me. That's why I was waiting with bated breath for updates on that prototype we saw at WonFes 2019.

    Is it weird that I was more interested in the core robot than the super mode? But I admit the Super Mode's grown on me. (Still need to work on giving him red eyes. Anyone know a video I can follow? I hate going in blind on something.

    (*immediately runs off to try to make this fan mode*)

    It's a pretty simple mod. Just unscrew the back of his head, which allows you take the face off, and then just find some red paint to paint over the eyes (or a kitkat wrapper), let it dry for a bit, and then screw the face back on.

    Ah yeah I had talked about this earlier in the thread, Cool to see he put a tutorial out for it because the one I tried to cobble together was super unstable. Optimus still looks like a little kid sitting on there but the throne itself look cool still.
