Armada Optimus Prime Review: "It'll be a Success if he Doesn't Catch Fire"

Yeesh! Quite possible the worst Transformer ever and definitely the worse Optimus. I might not be a Unicron Trilogy guy, but Armada fans deserve better, and Cybertron and Energon were infinitely better. This?*This is.....well, let's just say not good,lol. This is part 1 of 4, we'll see if he gets better later on with some help.

Yeah, it's not the best, but there's just something super nostalgic that I love about it.

You should see what Fanshobby is coming out with as their version of Armada Prime (He has actual legs!):

C'mon, the auto-transform feature was pure magic!

Even the Armada version got better when they released the smaller version a bit later.

Re: Armada Optimus Prime Review: "It'll be a Success if he Doesn't Catch Fire"

Even during the (post-Beast Wars)-(pre-Combiner Wars) draught where I didn't buy many TFs at all, I still broke my protocol for Armada Optimus, really liked the style

Mind, the one I got was the trailer-less version that came w/ the little gray Over-Run minicon

I remember he couldn't pose for sh*t, but I didn't give a crap - he was imposing, and I appreciated the "new take" on him
