    I still think Armada Prime might be part of the Commander class.

    His trailer was YUGE, and I can see Super Pants Prime being 11".

    If Armada Prime can't fit into Siege, then hopefully he'll be placed into the 2nd part of WFC

    We need a large Galaxy shuttle for sure, but have him come with the micromaster base that Countdown originally came with like he did in Japan.

    Maybe he's like David S. Pumpkins: his own thang.

    Because if they do the Armada combination gimmick, most people would display him that way and have a giant trailer/legs doing nothing.

    So you make the overall package more appealing by leaving out the trailer and thus reducing the price.

    Hell, Takara doing the trailer and Hasbro leaving it off but *both* selling Jetfire could also happen.

    Keep in mind, the fact they combine with each other would be entirely secondary to the figures involved. Just like Armada.

    That looks so badass. I wouldn't mind seeing a digibash of him in Armada Nemesis Prime colors.

    Yeah but there wouldn't necessarily be a guarantee that Jetfire would ever arrive (he could easily be cancelled for whatever reason), and if he didn't then they've put in a pointless feature.

    *If* they skipped the trailer specifically for Jetfire, then Jetfire is on his way. Much like LG Ginrai included hints that Godbomber was coming.

    A new T35 line that exists side-by-side with Siege would be cool.

    We will know in a few days at Toy Fair if Armada Prime and Star Convoy will be offered by Hasbro, or if they are Japan Exclusives.

    Since Armada is going to be turning 20 in a few years I wonder if this Armada Prime is going to be apart of a separate line from siege with updated Armada/Micron Legend figures as some sort of a 20th anniversary thing? That would be really cool actually.

    Yeah, but there was what, four tabs that go unused without Godbomber? But there's really no reason to think the trailer was dropped outside of it not being displayed yet.

    I hate to be a party pooper, but unless it was a Japanese exclusive (at least at the time!) I don’t believe Takara has revealed ‘ANY’ Generations figure first before Hasbro in the last 3-4 years. Eg Jetfire was already shown in renders for Toy Fair & Big Powered is so far a Japanese exclusive.

    Personally I think Star Convoy is just LG-EX, while Armada Prime will be released either in LG-EX or as part of another line, maybe as a stand-alone figure?

    I think Hasbro will get him ‘eventually’ but likely as an online exclusive, probably in a year or so’s time like they did with the Prime Wars Japanese Blast-Off figure. Armada Prime doesn’t have any of the posts for the blast effects like others in this series, so we know he’s not in ‘Siege’ at least.

    While what you're saying is very likely, I think Hasbro would be making a mistake to not release Armada Prime at retail.

    Looks like this MP44s cannon folds too; its tucked in there behind his back.  Was kinda bumbed about giving that up when upgrading from MP10.  Now not so much.
