    It’s a little harder to gauge because we just had a size class change. POTP Optimus represents the older style where the figures were taller but hollowed out, current figures have opted to reduce height in order to reduce hollowness. Star Convoy will be significantly taller than any Siege leader class figures, but Armada Prime looks to be a current voyager size figure.

    Likely though it’s irrelevant as he’ll probably be sold in a manner that doesn’t adhere to any domestic size class in order to accommodate a trailer.

    So, Hasbro is starting to promote their presence at New York Toy Fair 2019 this coming weekend.

    Chances are laughably slim, but anyone think it’s possible we'll hear something new about New Armada Optimus there? Armada was rather prevalent in the West if I’m not mistaken.

    Alright, Toy Fair came and is ending tomorrow with no update on NuArmada!Optimus.

    Anyone know when the next Japanes toy event is happening? Because maybe that is when we'll hear more about this enigmatic robot...

    not sure when the Japanese toys events are but we could here something later like at SDCC or sooner or I think have it listed on Hasbro Pulse in much the same way the MPs are.

    Hey, could we change to title to include Star Convoy, please? Something like, “Takara LGEX Armada Optimus and Star Convoy” Poor dude doesn’t have his own thread per say, and I have a feeling he will be the one released first.

    New figures are also hollowed out.
    The only real difference is the size, the greebling and the paint apps.

    Yes, these 'any more news?' bumps are very annoying. If there's news, someone will post it.

    Well, while there may not be any news on this. It certainely had an impact on Fans Hobby, as they were making a 3P deluxe Armada Optimus, and have now decided to try and one up Takara.

    Sorry in advance for kicking this thread back up, but I saw this and figured it would be good to share. If it's been shared in another thread, I'd love to know which. But I thought it would be good to see a general idea of how he'll look once he's out of this prototype stage and fully colored.

    Not mine, just found it on google, in case anyone thinks the former

    Definitely looking forward to this. Armada brought me back to collecting Transformers. I hope he’s loaded with a trailer, Sparkplug, Overrun, etc. Not expecting it, but hoping.
