The CounterPunch Articles: Why I like Transformers: Armada

Seibertron's own Counterpunch has started a series of articles on how we, Transformers fans "have it good".

This series of articles will focus on what was good about certain toy lines of figures, focusing on the positive, rather than the negative.

In his second article, Counterpunch discusses all that was good and right with the Micron Legend/Armada series.

The title alone brings with it a tide of discontent, disappointment, and overall dislike. Arguing for the high points in this line is like playing Devil’s Advocate. Childish, lacking articulation, and gimmick heavy, Armada is the whipping boy of modern Transformers lines. I have to admit, after being taken in by RiD, I was certainly taken back by Armada. Many of my early purchases of this line were actually due to boredom or just to buy something ‘fun’ (I was working a miserable, exhausting job as nighttime security for my University…). Needless to say, my first take on the toys, like many people who see them today for the first time, was not necessarily positive.

Interestingly enough, the line started to sell really well. Not only that, but there was a lot of hype and excitement around the series, much like Animated is causing today. There were people who were unhappy with this new series, but for the most part, those folks were able to get by on the new and exciting reissue G1 toys that were appearing from Takara. Hard to believe in a way, but Armada got less popular with collectors as time went by, where as most series toys seem to see a slow but steady gain in popularity.

Why take another look at this series? Do we really dislike these toys to the degree that popular opinion would suggest? I don’t think so... We all know the bad, I’m going to review some things which might just change your mind, well, that or have to justify to your girlfriend and/or wife why you are spending $40 on a Mini-con.

More Botcon Mold Rumors...

Please ignore this if you do not want to possibly be spoiled...continue on at your own risk.






'Darthconvoy', a source that posts on another site --A source who also just happens to have had CORRECTLY predicted all the molds, and color styles for the 5 piece boxed set for Botcon 2008-- reports that the two molds that will be in the other add-on set are...

Toy Rumor 1 with grey and green color.

Toy Rumor 2 with remolded head.

Are these the actual toys? What characters could they be? Check out the galleries of these toys in their original forms by clicking above!

And in case you forgot, the other rumored add-on set is none other than CLASSICs Hot Rod with black paint job, and 'evil' mirrorverse goatee, and Energon Megatron, in heroic shades of blue, black and grey, possibly including a kinder, more compassionate remolded head.

Of course, it's a rumor until we see or hear more!

Join the already going thread here that gives a little more detail to the rumor...only a little.

New Update!

Pete@Botcon has stated on the club forums that this year's set is balanced as far as numbers are concerned with 7 Autobots and 7 Decepticons. So keep that in mind while speculating who these new characters are.
