    FansHobby's offering is definitely a good thing to tide over but my biggest want is a full resurgence of the UT designs and the ethos behind it. The new and drastically different designs helped each one stand out.Yes sure it had it's duds but G1 Wheelie exists. Hell, ANY 86 figure made for the movie exists.

    Took this picture real quick to imagine what laser prime would be like.

    20210905_204452.jpg

    The shoulders would be attached to the ab section and transform as you'd expect from there.

    I know the remolding would probably be a lot more extensive than just this, but ER's transformation honestly seems very similar to RTS laser prime's. Of course I'm assuming the windshield will form the actual chest, and idk if that's gonna happen.

    Prime Optimus looks awesome. Energon Optimus not so much. I’d take Machine wars Prime over Energon Prime.

    Which would lead to the more important use of that mould, Thunderclash.

    I could see, and prefer, that over a new Energon Optimus (Even if it's only a retool of another figure).

    I told myself I wasn't going to get it, that I had their MP Armada Optimus and that that was all I needed cause even if I had more Nostalgia for Energon's design because I hate getting duplicates of characters.

    Then they actually showed him off.

    And my wallet wept, for Nostalgia found another product to conquer.

    I told you once and I'll tell you again. MB15 was Convoy, this is Grand Convoy and therefore justifies the double dipping.

    Yeah I’m not a huge fan of the design. It’s definitely not bad but Optimus has had so many great designs that it’s on the lower end of the spectrum imo.
    I’d also love a machine wars as a selects redeco of Thunderclash.

    I've said this many times, but it bears repeating. As a toy buyer for a small chain back then I can say that G2 sold a TON better than the Micromaster / Pretender / Action Master years of late G1. We couldn't GIVE Action Masters away! G2 was a solid seller for us, but still lower than Ninja Turtles and Power Rangers.... G2 didn't kill Transformers it just wasn't given the tools to save it. The poor toys at the end of G1 and the lack of a cartoon killed Transformers. If G2 had even a basic cartoon featuring G2 characters I'm 1000% sure it would be seen in a much better light...and G2 prime looks way better than Armada (What if Wheeljack had the matrix) Prime and had way more playability.

    Armada Optimus will look great next to Beast Wars Neo Unicron!

    I hope they do an Armada Optimus in the next few years. With Jetfire.

    I mean, real talk, this has to be because an MP is on the way next year, right? Armada Prime came in 2nd in that VS poll and it's 20th anniversary is coming up, when BW got it's first MP in Primal. Right?

    Right?

    I HATE Energon, and even I like that Optimus a lot.

    Oh Jazz no, I thought we could be friends!

    Needlenose and Armada Optimus are the two people waiting for the doctor, except that Armada Prime is going to get to see them first, despite Needlenose arriving to the office first.

    Going hard on the copium too I see.

    I am now prepared for any Armada Megatron to be a CW Armada Megs style retool of Siege Megatron and for everything to be G1ified and a poor re/protool for a G1 character
