    what was most buzz worthy to you? For me, def. masterpiece Bum... LoL, no, that things a total disaster head to kibble-laden feet...

    Shockingly, as an unabashed hater of the original toy line, for me it’s Armada Prime: he looks like the figure we SHOULD have got in line that was coming off of CR/RiD’01 instead of the simplified, Playskool-aesthetic, poorly-proportioned, un-articulated, over- greebled, badly-sculpted, hampered-by-gimmicks-laden mess that the line was.

    But this new Armada Prime looks unbelievable - fantastic sculpting, nice updating of the original design, great looking head, cool details without the rediculous over greebling a lot of Armada (and now Seige) suffered from. Frankly, to me he looks much more a “Masterpiece” then what the G1 Masterpiece line is pooping out these days. The “ultimate” version of a character.

    (It’s ironic that the MPM and BWMP are just killing it in the design department while the G1 line crawls up Sunbow’s cheap poor-quality animation black hole)

    As it turns out, probably Black Aracknia. That one was a surprise and looks good. I expected to be wowed more by MP BB, but, he just doesn’t quite cut it for me, unfortunately.

    As much as I like the star convoy and armada prime, I don't buy Takara or masterpiece figures, so the only one that applies to me is Siege Jetfire's clean altmode.
    And even then I wasn't too excited for that either, but it's nice to know that they're moving away from the battle damage.

    pretty sure it'll be there: by "clean" i meant "not armored up" ~ i'd imagine they "dirty" paint wasn't on there because that was a pre-production hard copy.

    you could see the poo they'd rubbed all over Jetfire's cockpit and legs in the Hasbro renders :(

    I can't wait for the Blackarachnia. It looks awesome! I just hope it doesn't come with a $300 price tag.

    Armada Prime, no question. It looks steps above everything else that is new and being shown off.

    Question, is the sculpted details based on a specific art somewhere? It’s definitely not based on the toy or shows detailing. I’m actually much happier if it’s original, I much prefer creative interpretations of characters than slavish recreations (ie the current mp’s or siege leader prime’s fake wheels/ windows)

    Second choice is a tie between Skyfire and star convoy (for that headsculpt, it’s so good).

    Special mention to siege Starscream and soundwave, they aren’t new to the show, but damn they look good.

    yep yep
    yeah, it seems to be a unique interpretation, improving on the original toy and toon design styles, which is why i find it more exciting then slavish devotion to existing looks.

    Star Convoy.

    Though I am more looking forward to Skyfire. It was nice to see the “clean” alt mode without the worthless add-ons that will immediately go into the extra parts bin. But since Jetfire had already been revealed by Hasbro, seeing the clean Jetfire alt mode wasn’t as cool for me as seeing Star Convoy.

    The only things I personally don't care for are the MP-10/Nike repaints. Everything else is exciting.

    But for the sake of the poll, Masterpiece Black Arachnia.

    Armada Prime was the most exciting by a wide margin. Cannot wait to have more information about what’s up with him.
