Had no idea that the JP G1 Dai Atlas toy turned into a MM base.

Iím quite digging these JP G1 characters getting new toys - I hope they make one of him at some point! Though not MP - I love my legends Overlord way more than my MP Star Saber, in part due to price.

Maybe it's because my early exposures to seeing Transformers in stores was the Micromasters and Action Masters on pegs, but I really hope we get Micromasters and Micromaster bases in a future CHUG line. A modern Dai Atlas and Star Convoy with modern Micromasters would be amazing to me.

I'd completely forgotten that Armada Optimus Prime has a movable mouthplate

I thought I read somewhere that you can move the windscreen wipers on MP-10. I just had a go on mine and they don't budge...I certainly wasn't going to force it though...

I never realised that the fan-vote combiner Victorion, has some Easter egg nods to the original series cartoon episode "Cosmic Rust", with each toy having Cybertronian writing on it that adds up to the entire warning rhyme spoken in that episode, and part of the combined sword is sculpted to homage the Lightning Bug that Megatron found and used.

If his legs/feet are set correctly, G1 Sky Lynx can actually walk around in circles. (on a smooth timber floor). I discovered this when Sky Lynx circumnavigated my coffee table after tripping over an object that offset one of his legs.

I've not successfully replicated this effect since though.

It never really registered to me before, but after watching Human Error, I realised why Optimus' main weapon is an axe. Beccause he's a fire fighter/truck.

WOW, clever!

Why did it take me so long...

You also do know that the human avatars are all modelled after the voice actors too, right?
e.g. Optimus Prime = David Kaye, Bumblebee = Bumper Robinson etc.

Well, that plus the G1 reference.
