Alright, definitely time to start saving for that Armada Prime. Confirmation of a super mode was all I needed to decide that this should be my definitive Armada Prime

I have no special attachment to Star Convoy but Armada was my first Transformers series and what got me into Transformers. I am glad to see a updated version of my favorite character and hope that they make a few more characters from the Unicron Trilogy.

Armada Prime is a must. I'm really happy with what HAS/TAK has been doing lately. I would love to see Unicron redone and a definitive Alpha Trion for siege

We don't know as of yet, I believe; most are assuming that they are going to be legends line exclusives, so LGEX; but I don't know if they had sign cards for the figures there

Unless you were asking what lines they originally came from, then armada prime comes from armada/micron legend and star convoy comes from a japan only sub line of G1, but I don't know which one specifically

I'd like to see Star Convoy's vehicle mode. I keep looking at that robot mode and I don't see some of the parts from the G1 toy I have, like the treads on the trailer, Unless of course I'm thinking of the wrong convoy.

The last thing I ever expected was for my fave OP toy to be getting a new version, I couldn’t be happier. I’m wondering if there’s a trailer for him we have yet to see, or if he’s just meant to combine with his original toy’s trailer :-? Curious and curiouser

I'd be ok with it if there is no Super Mode trailer for Armada OP, but only if it means that there's also a new Jetfire to combine it with. That'd be a dream.

Armada was my favorite of the Unicron trilogy and one of my favorite TF shows. that Armada Prime is a must-buy. Star Convoy looks cool, but I have no real attachment to him. If I can get him, then cool. If not, ah well.

Fingers crossed there will be a new version of Overload to go with new Armada Optimus. Or maybe a Siege version of Overload.

We we get into all the items that could go with the Armada Prime, I wonder if they considered all that when they decided to make him.

I do hope they get rid of the gill mask in super mode though. I remember at bot con one year at a panel where one of the guys too credit for creating it, then apologized for it's design.

I never minded the grill mask. :D

Anyway, yeah. I want a Jetfire and Overload that can combine with him. Hell, a Jetfire that can combine with him and the trailer, if he comes with one. The whole hog this time!

So there is an actually bit of animation to go with it or was that just the name of the Japanese Toy Line?

Zone was the last piece of JG1 animation. Return of Convoy had only a series of story pages (whose art was drawn in the same style as the JG1 cartoons, though) and one manga chapter.

As on the original PotP toy the wheels of the trailer are hidden by the folding panels. Speaking of which, the retooling done on the trailer is less severe than first imagined:

- Lower legs (where the wheels are), but not the feet
- The pelvis and abdomen
- The tops of the shoulders

Yes, which is why we don't know what line they'll be in, they could even be in a new one to celebrate the 35th anniversary. But that's not all, they didn't even officially name the characters, simply calling them "S" and "A" on their placards. And that itself is strange because the "A" which we assume stands for Armada isn't what the show was called in Japan. Could they be retconning the character as Armada Convoy now? Considering all the characters he could be teamed with plus Minicons that's not a bad choice.

Does make me wonder if they could be planning a heavy further retool of Siege Leader Optimus Prime in the future. :-?

"S Convoy" and "A Convoy", actually. Using "Armada Convoy" isn't that strange: like Armada Optimus Prime, Optimus Primal was originally just called "Convoy" in Japan, only receiving the "Beast" add-on during Robot Masters to distinguish him from the original (who went by "G1 Convoy", but that didn't really stick). Plus, "Armada Convoy" has seen use before, as the name for that Bendy Prime redeco in Cybertron when it was imported in Japan.

I think its super strange since the show wasnt called Armada in japan and this toy was being revealed by a japanese company in japan.

I have come up with a little theory about the next part of WFC. what if they are planning to use Mini-cons as the next gimmick by modifying them to use the C.O.M.B.A.T. system that was introduced in siege like small weaponizers. measuring my Armada Prime he is about 11 inches tall from head to foot I think that is enough to be part of the commander size class if they include his trailer. it probably is just me over analyzing a toy that might not come to the States though
