    You ARE looking at Armada Prime’s Super Mode. It’s Star Convoy. Why show them together like that?

    Because they’re both in the same line.

    Armada Prime does not turn into Star Convoy.

    I know a lot of folks are loving that V2 Bumblebee, but to me it just looks bad.

    Blackarachnia and Armada Prime are fantastic though, and I really hope that a Sparkplug will be coming with Op.

    They both have separate tags in front of them. One says "S Convoy" and the other says "A Convoy". They're separate figures.

    It's also distinctly possible that the cab 'bot is a placeholder. I REALLY hope the final version transforms into a long nosed cab.

    (I'd been considering that Star Convoy could be a retool of a POTP leader class, but I would have bet on it using Rodimus' "trailer".)

    It's not, Armada Prime's legs split open for his and Star Convoy uses the same transformation as POTP Prime.

    Kind of disappointing. Having just watched Armada for the first time, I was hoping any version of that Prime would come with trailer pants. And I\'m very okay with a titan class Star Convoy. Would much prefer that. Though if this means any version of Grandus is coming....

    I read the article, it says these are part of the siege line but I'm thinking they more so fit in LG EX, are they confirmed to be in the Siege line?

    Anybody get a good enough pic yet of Star Convoy's back to be able to suss out what the inner robot's gonna be?

    Wondering if the eventual black repaint of Armada Prime will take it's cues from the show or toy version of Nemesis though. Got my fingers crossed for the toy colors with the beige and the red details, that scheme is peak Nemesis Prime for me.

    Aaand just like that Bumblebee went back from 'maybe' to 'nope.' The backpack and feet speak for themselves, and that face has seen some shit...

    Are they officially naming him "Armada Convoy" in Japan? That's amusing.

    :eek:  Blackarachnia!? Really!? O_O

    STAR CONVOY? ARMADA PRIME!?

    And holy damn, that Jetfire is the most 80s looking thing I've ever seen. It's glorious. That alt mode is amazing. The color scheme is so plain and kitschy. I love it. It's exactly how I hoped he'd look.

    And everyone already knows I love the new MP Bee.

    HasTak... what are you doing to us!? :lol

    Yeah, the "A" is a bit weird. I would think it should be an "M", especially since they're still calling him Convoy.

    He does, they just haven't been shown yet, he has the split in his pelvis for the head if you look closely.

    I thought they just called him "Micron Convoy" or "Densetsu Convoy" or something over there.

    Is the helmet on Jetfire a reference to something I don\'t know? Doesn\'t his robotech helmet usually have antennae?
