Even though it was retconned into being another sequel later in both countries. Even in Japan, Galaxy Force is officially considered a sequel to Micron Densetsu and Super Link. Guess it was a good thing that a few trace elements of the first two made it into the third series. ;)

Though, could it really be considered a retcon when it was originally intended by both Hasbro and Takara to be another sequel? All that happened with the cartoon was that either GONZO didn't get the memo or outright ignored the memo and wrote it as a new series despite what the higher ups wanted, thus leading to a lot of headaches that both companies (Hasbro especially) wound up having to try and fix to make it fit the original vision for the series.

Emerging Prime was punching the Unicron Singularity which caused the Cybertron series to happen, its toys to be amazing, and Lori's tsundere powers to be over 9000.

Man, I love this fandom. I got all those references. :lol:

Though, I'm more partial to this:

Aw, man. Great article, guys. Armada started right before my senior year of high school. I'm coming up on my 10-year-reunion this year. I've gotten rid of some of my Armada figures, but my favorites are NOT going anywhere. Unicron is still sitting on the same bookshelf he's been since I picked him up in summer of '03. He's fighting the Dark of the Moon Dinobot minicons. It works as both a G1 homage and an Armada homage. :grin:

This year, I also added a very cool piece to my Armada collection: a page of original Andrew Wildman art from the UK Armada comic. It features Starscream and Demolishor in all their glory. So awesome.
