Optimus Prime Combiners - Armada and R.I.D worth it?

Hi Guys!

I'm planning to expand my Optimus collection and I'm debating if I should get the following figures. Wondering if you guys can help me out in giving me your opinion:

For Armada, should I get Jetfire and Overload with ?

For R.I.D, should I grab Ultra Magnus with

I'm not sure how good of a figure they are when combined so wanted to get some of your opinion! I think the Armada and R.I.D optimus by themselves are already awesome figures but just wanted to see if I should spend the extra cash to get their combiner counterparts...let me know your opinion! Thanks!

You absolute should get the RID pair. Prime is a great toy all on his own, and he's HUGE combined with Magnus.

Re: Optimus Prime Combiners - Armada and R.I.D worth it?

I'm going to second the RID pair; never had either of those figures myself, but I've heard nothing but good things; I still hold out hope of one day getting an RID Prime for myself.

As for Armada...eeeh, maybe not? I've heard bad things about the Optimus toy; Armada blockiness notwithstanding, I've heard the electronics can be prone to shorting out and sparking. Maybe not a good idea?

RID Prime and Magnus? Yay - because they're awesome

Armada brick Prime? Nay - because brick. Better to get Armada Bendy Prime which is a superior figure and not bother with the combining gimmick of the brick.

If your going all out on these the Japanese rid gift set is in translucent plastic plus the god sword....impressive when combined as for armada prime I have had no problems with the electronic functions having both I prefer the Japanese colors and paint apps and there is also the gift set that includes overload.

The Armada trio is really fun, the autotransform feature of the trailer is cool to watch. I got The Japanese version of Jetfire (looks better) and Energon Ultra Magnus to go with Optimus. Never liked Parkinson Prime, gimmick is stupid and the toy is boring to death.

Do get RID Ultra Magnus.

The Armada Trio is a sight to behold when fully combined, if you find one, get it.

This.

As for RID, Omega Prime is 1 of the most parts-formery combiners. You may be disappointed if you have principles against such.

RID Prime is one of my fav primes. Combined mode looks fantastic.
