Thanks to blogger Black Plastic Life, we now have in hand pictures of Combiner Wars Leader Class Armada Megatron! This figure is a retool of the Leader Megatron also in recent news who is more Generation 1 inspired. But if you're more interested in his Armada incarnation at the moment, take a look at his Bio!

For millions of years, Megatron has led fanatical legions of evil Decepticons on their war for conquest. A living weapon with dozens of modifications made in the name of increased power and destructive capabilities, his only weakness is his single-minded desire for the enslavement of the universe.


Keep scrolling to see the pics, and stay tuned to Seibertron.com for all your Transformers News!

We now know that whirl, having no known weaknesses, could definitely beat armada megatron's one weakness butt in a fight.

I saw Armada Megatron listed as coming soon at HTS (http://www.hasbrotoyshop.com/transformers-generations-leader-class-armada-megatron-figure?BR=496&ID=33970), so I assume that he will be released shortly. I personally never liked Armada and won't be getting this, but I really like that silver G1 version. Hopefully the silver one won't be that hard to track down.

It doesn't look like it, but I wish there was a way to keep the head exposed in tank mode, not unlike the original Armada Megatron

Armada Megatron reminds me of Tankor in a way, a bad way, in how it's a "sterilized" version lacking all the goofy little toyetic gimmicks that nonetheless made the bot memorable.

At least Flathead is the right size.

The only way it could get more generic is by saying: "Megatron is the leader of the Decepticons. He is evil. The decipticons are evil. Thus the autobots are good.

It's not all bad, I mean it is leagues ahead of what they've done with combiners up until this point, but then all the individual figures take major hits in ways that shouldn't even remotely have been an issue for their size class and budget. It's kinda depressing for them to come so close and yet still be so far.

Thee was a lot of discussion about this point in the Devastator thread, but I'll borrow a quote from myself:
That Bot wrote:Hasbro has made one of the largest combining robot toys ever here for only $150, and that's no small feat.

There are a lot of considerations that go into making something this big for this price which wouldn't go into six run of the mill non-combining voyagers at the same total price. For further reading:

I hate that I have to buy both of these guys. I also hate that he is not at all in scale with Armada Screamer that just came out. Hopefully we at least get an Armada Prime update that scales really nicely.

I thought it was that the Autobots waged their battle.... Huh.....

I've heard people say it both ways, but definitely not in a past tense.

"Rage" just makes more sense when battle is concerned, since it's not like the Autobots are always gambling their fights.

Oh, right. I used it in the past tense in my sentence, not as a direct quote, sorry. *sheepish grin*

And I was thinking how countries wage war on each other. TFwiki says "wage." *shrug*

Dosen't that make it sound like the autobots are the assholes in this? Aren't the Decepticons the aggressors in all of this. So wouldn't the Decepticons be raging war, while the autobots wage the war, considering they're continuing and reciprocating. After all the definition of wage in this context is to carry on.

So, all the combiners are (will be) bought for me. My only real gripe is that Menasor doesn't really have an abdomen. It looks like his legs are sticking out of his chest. I'll display my Stunticons in individual robot modes. I'm getting two of the Arielbot sets (one Hasbro and the other Takara) - one for the individual Arielbots and one for Superion.

Passing on the Devastator. For such a large combiner, I think it could have been done better. Sure they all look decent, but I think the arms of the individual Constructicons put me off a bit...and the gimpy Mixmaster alt modes. I have Green Giant too, so he shall suffice.

Love the Defensor. Probably will be buying two sets of this as well.

Megatron(s), Cyclonus, Thundercracker, I think will have to be passes. I have the Apollyon 3rd party on pre-order, and I have the Masterpiece TC. Just not interested in the Cyclonus.

Really, I'm making a huge exception for the Combiner Wars stuff since I sold off all my CHUGs last year, vowing to only buy Masterpieces and the good 3rd Party stuff.

The Constructicons vary quite a bit in quality, but for the most part I think they're good. Bonecrusher and Scavenger are the best since being arms doesn't effect their bot and alt modes. Longhaul and Scrapper are the worst thanks to their over simplification. If Scrapper just had elbows instead of the stupid swivel he'd be one of the better figures. Hook and Mixmaster at least look good, but the elbows are awful. Vehicle modes are all great and Devastator is nearly perfect. Really want to know if the chest wings still go with Scrapper and if we see the return of the drills.

I guess I'm the only one that likes Cyclonus? The Deluxe figure is OK, but was never a huge fan of his needle nose alt mode. I love the Voyager's alt mode, it's almost perfect to the original figure. The bot mode is off, but I was never a big fan of Cyclonus' ears anyway. I'll probably give him Nightstick and do something else with the deluxe.

I think we all have to hold off fully prejudging Dev. At least until his release. Same thing happened to MP-BB. He actually came out very good despite his initial pictures.

So, granted I may have missed it somewhere in the 150 damn pages of this thread, but am I going to have to import from Takara to get a complete superion? All due respect to Va'al, but a helicopter does NOT belong amongst the Airialbots.

Planes and whirlybirds are like the bloods and crips, they just shouldn't mix.
