So basically even more Arms-Up modes for Arms Master Optimus? :shock: This is getting nuts. For the sake of comprehension, allow me to explains the demonstrations. They're basically custom made Arms Up modes with repainted Arms Microns, black and gold in this case. They are:

1. Full Burst 22 Optimus
2x B.2
1x Sais
4x. C.L.

The 2 B.2's and Sais form a blaster, while the C.L.'s attach to Optimus' shoulders. Rather tame IMO. The 22 stems from the total amount of gun barrels: 4 x 3 + 2 x 2 + 6 (the guns on Optimus himself) = 22 The Microns can merge into Heavy Armed B.2, with the C.L.'s as limbs and the B.2/Sais combo as the body. Moving on:

2. God Optimus Prime
1x Ulma
2x Ida
2x L.P.
2x O.P.
1x Gul
1x Iro

Ulma, Gul and Iro form the Combo Weapon God Glaive, while Ida, L.P. and O.P. form the God Stole, basically a religious liturgical vestment. It's called a Combo Weapon, but it shouldn't be as all 3 components have the same crystal shape (hexagon). New rules perhaps? To top it off, the 3 weapons combine into the Hyper Combo Weapon God Archery.

The rest of the video shows off the Arms Up modes already covered in the past: Aqua Screw, Sky Wing and Ultimate Mode.

So yeah, I'll be busy updating my lists and, while Sabrblade can take the wiki :lol:

Speaking of Arms Up modes, a Japanese toy review site I frequent has yet two more for Arms Master Optimus: Full Arms Up Optimus Prime (Robot Mode and Vehicle Mode) and Arms Master Optimus Ultimate Arms Up. Two more cluster****s, so I'll spare you the details :lol:

Well, I'm going to partially agree here. They've taken a lot of the American molds crapped them up with those nasty AM ports. However, there are dudes like Skywarp, Breakdown, Thundercracker, Breakdown, Ironhide, Breakdown, Leo Prime, Breakdown, Unicron, and Breakdown that are actually worth it since we can't get them here in the U.S.
