Top 5 Best Transformers Armada Toys

Postby william-james88 » Fri Aug 09, 2019 10:18 pm

Every two weeks, Seibertron.com brings you a Top 5 list related to all things Transformers written by your fellow editor or a guest writer. These are our opinions so what matters most is what you guys think of the topic or list, and I hope to see your own lists or comments on omissions and ranking. Let's have fun! All previous lists can be found here.

Top 5 Best Transformers Armada Toys

This is the line that saw the advancements in articulation and complexity of the Beast Era and went "na, were good, lets go back to late G1 articulation with poor proportions and obtrusive gimmicks". And then the same thing happened again 15 years later for the Cyberverse line. You see, Transformers are cyclical that way. But it's not to say there isn't a lot to love in Armada and this list will go through some toys that I feel anyone should have in their collection as a keepsake of this era. Plus with all the hubub over the new Unicron, it was fun to revisit the line that gave us our first Unicron toy.

5. Transformers Armada Demolishor (Iron Hide)

I like this toy all around. The mobile missile launcher alt mode looks good and works well. I especially like how the robot fingers double as rocket launchers. The minicon integration is also nice as it fills in the alt mode. And we get a very original looking robot mode out of it with a cool headsculpt.

4. Transformers Armada Sideways (Double Face)

Ths toy is all about the playability aspect. It incorporated the duality gimmick of previous Transformers, like Punch/Counterpunch and the headmaster gimmick by combining both into one. Like that Sideways gets a different head depending on his allegiance. He also happens to have a nice looking bot mode and a great looking motorcycle which the headmaster unit can ride.

3. Transformers Armada Megatron

Speaking of playability, the Megatron in this line was like his own playset with lots of action features and ports for minicons, including ramps, trap doors and hidden areas. Plus he has a hidden blade/shiv if ever he has to get extra nasty. Of course he isn't without firepower with a fun himage to the G1 ty by having a massive cannon under his arm pit. I love the facesculpt too with the giant horns that act as shears in tank mode, just to add to its ferocity.

Image

2. Transformers Armada Tidal Wave (Shockwave)

Armada was all about the gimmicks and while some did not turn out great, they really knocked it out of the park with this one. This toy is one for the ages with three seperate vehicles, all with their own individual gimmicks (like a fold out seating area, or an elevator) that combine into a massive ship which then transforms into a giant robot. I really love all about this toy and I feel any fan is missing out by not experiencing this mold. There is nothing else wuite like it out there.

1. Transformers Armada Unicron

I think everyone saw it coming. With Tidal Wave at number 2, the only bot that could beat it would be none other than Unicron. Unicron at the time was a dream come true. Not only was it a great representation for the main villain of the Armada series but it was finally a transforming toy of the villain from the 86 film, which may fans longed for. I love how it serves this dual purpose. I think what I find smartest of all in its design is the rings the turn into the wings. I am really impressed at how they did manage to give us a planet-like alt mode and a well proportioned bot even if there is some shellforming involved. Due to its popularity, this mold keeps being released over and over so anyone wanting it can get it with ease.

Image

Image

Honouable Mentions:

Destruction Mini-Con Team

A big part of Armada were the minicons and the special ports can still be found on certain toys released a decade later. The mincons I liked best were the ones that had an extra action gimmick. They were already simpler toys with odd proportions so adding an action feature didn't hinder anything that wasn't there already. And of those, I liked the Destruction Mini-Con Team best due to the irony of these massive alt modes being rserved to tiny bots. I mean you have a Gepard anti-aircraft tank, a tunneling machine and a kreaken bucket-wheel excavator. The bucket-wheel spins and so does the drill. Plus, the bucket-wheel excavator can be attached under Armada Cyclonus and interact with its gear-wheel rotor system.

Was honestly expecting to see either A) Unicron excluded since he's the obvious automatic #1, or B) Jetfire somewhere on this list.

I still to this day regret my own stubbornness for not embracing the line more because I missed out
On Tidal Wave and Megatron and I think of those as staples of this series. And Sideways is always around our house to this day I mean a poseable double headmaster on a motorcycle, uh, so rad? Yes? :lol:

I love these - great list thank you sir!

Excellent list!

Overall, Armada was a disappointment. After getting cars/vehicles again in RiD 2001, I was so looking forward to something amazing. The lack of articulation of many bots, the funky proportions, and... let's face it... the cartoon - all of these contributed to a by-and-large dislike of the line.

That said, I really did enjoy the Minicons. The street patrol, with Highwire, Grindor, and Sureshock, especially got me in all the right ways.

And then came Unicron. Damn. So deserving of that Number 1 spot. I had the original Armada one, but traded him in for the version in that excellent G1 movie recreation - the Hasbro Movie version. It really is an amazing toy that is overflowing with gimmicks, details, and bonus electronics.

Great list.

Eh, I didn't think Sideways was all that. He's definitely not top 5. Mine:

5. Demolishor
4. Cyclonus
3. Unicron
2. Jetfire
1. Tidal Wave

Honorable mention: deluxe Optimus Prime

Interesting article as always though I have to respectfully disagree. Starscream/Thundercracker should definitely be on this list, same for Bendy Prime and Hoist.

Starscream still holds up today. His only flaw is not being able to turn his head. The Armada and Cybertron Seekers nicely bulk up the ranks of the Siege Seekers.

Excellent list! Armada is such an underrated line- sure, the toys aren't the most poseable but the actual robot designs are universally great (even if they didn't transfer that well to plastic) and a lot of them are really fun. Also great to see Demolishor getting some love, a decent Generations update for him is something I still want.

I'm in wholehearted agreement with the list, but a few honourable mentions for me at least would be:
>"Bendy" Prime, whose poseablity is still top shelf to this day.
>Jetfire, who in spite of his intrusive (but awesome) gimmick still managed to be a really, really cool looking robot with an awesome shuttle mode with some great play features.
>Starscream, just for that smirk- THE best Starscream headsculpt in history IMO.

Here's a list that I can get behind at 100%. I'm surprised Demolishor made the list. For me, he's a great character in the show and his toy, despite being cheap and common, simply rock and is a lot of fun. I thought I was the only one to like it.

The only ones that can be interchangeable in the list are Sideways and Megatron. Both are super fun and great looking equally.

Tidal Wave. Man, this toy is awesome. His only glaring flaw are some articulation points missing that they could have implemented. But other than that, he's awesome.

As for Unicron, he's so perfect! I don't really care that his planet mode is not perfectly round. He's still incredible and the Amazon version is good enough for being the "G1" version. Anyone lucky enough to have the Throne of Chaos to go with the planet mode? I ordered and got mine just in time way back then.

Oh man, great picks but there's a lot missing in the shout-outs. Both bendy Prime and Leader Prime are great - Leader because his base mode is so much fun to set up and put mini-cons all over.

I would have had Jetfire on there, too. He's one of the more poseable ones and his vehicle mode is super solid (and the hatch on top is fun), plus he manages to become a decent pair of legs for Prime.

Finally, I would have mentioned more mini-cons, particularly the requiem blaster, and the set that turns into individual weapons (the police car that turns into a gun is one of my all-time favorite).

Unicron seems so ahead of his time. With engineering that well executed, he feels like he should have actually released a few years later in Cybertron or Classics. I’m gonna echo some others here and shout out the Hoist mold. Good size, surprisingly well-articulated, and a well-integrated gimmick. I have the Universe Ransack repaint as well as possibly my favorite obscure homage ever; Cybertron Longrack. What a perfect use of the mold.

Bendy Prime is probably the best Deluxe in the line. Sideways is ambitious and Rook/Crosswise are fun but the execution of the bot mode leaves a little to be desired.

Help me out gang was bendy Prime the deluxe that came out later? Now that couldn’t combine with the trailer but had added articulation right? And it came with that Leader-1-ish Minicon I think. And then I think that was the one that got reused several times after like repaints and Nemesis versions. Am I thinking of the right bot?

Yup. That's the one. He was also remolded for the Cybertron line, the minicon gimmick replaced with a cyber key.

Not quite on the retooling bit. The toy itself was unaltered, but the key had a Mini-Con port added. Same with the Demolishor re-release.

The toys that did have the gimmick retooled were Blurr, Hoist, Side Swipe and Cyclonus, into Blurr, Longrack, Runabout/Runamuck and Buzzsaw. :) That should say something about those molds, right? :???:

Last-minute additions I should say. Too bad their Mini-Cons weren't redecoed, unlike the Takara 4 that ended up in Micron Boosters. I still need one for my "Roller" :lol:

So you don't consider his entire back sticking straight out in robot mode (and making him ungainly and top-heavy) a flaw? If it wasn't for that, he'd be#1 on my list. But that's a very bad design flaw, especially when a single hinge could have fixed it.

I also don't get why the Armada Unicron mold is so loved. It doesn't even form a whole planet, and in robot mode he's top-heavy and his feet are too big. I do have the G1 25th anniversary version, but I'm not head over heels about it. I do like that he has individual articulated fingers.
