There's always more, thanks again to JTPrime17 who's shared a bit of news that the may be shipping this summer with his recent update letting us know of a a possible "August 1st release date". This date is close enough to SDCC 2023 that it is highly likely it will be official revealed at the convention, or just before. - Read the Full News Story

Yeah, that's what I thought. It is in between Super Ginrai/Star Saber and God Ginrai/Victory Saber in height. That's very unfortunate. I want it to be one or the other if anything. I guess the designers who like to stick to a certain scale didn't work on this one like they did for Star Saber. It's just weird that they even mentioned that Star Saber will be in scale with older figures like Super Ginrai as a selling point but then don't do something similar for Armada Optimus. Not that G1 and Armada have the same scale to begin though. It's just that it's the perfect height. Hopefully the upcoming Armada Megatron will at least scale with this if nothing else.

I just can't possibly make GUOP any taller and have it still look good though. I have the new feet upgrade to make it look more like the super mode feet from Cybertron Optimus Prime. I have the DNA legs. I even have thigh extenders as well. There's nothing else available to make him any taller. Yeah Cybertron Optimus Prime is almost all legs but that's as long as the legs can get on GUOP. As is, my fully upgraded GUOP and Cybertron Optimus are pretty similar proportion wise. So adding another set of thigh extenders would push past that and it would really look silly at that point. Not that the thigh extenders can even be doubled up as I don't think they're designed to do that but I haven't tried yet. I have quite a few sets around and two right next to me. I'm going to try so wait a minute...and I'm back.

Short answer is nope.

Long answer is that the ones I have on GUOP are different than the ones I have on Tenseg Optimus. They're not compatible. The ones on GUOP can definitely not be doubled up. The top port that attaches to the hip is a different direction to the bottom port that attached to the original or DNA thigh. So the thigh extenders just can't double up. The ones I have on Tenseg Optimus/Kingdom Ultra Magnus/Magna Convoy might be able to double up as the port directions are the same. It's just that since they're not designed to do that, some slight modding would be required. Since that modding would be on the front of the thigh, I won't try it though. Also, the right thigh extender was already broken when I grabbed Optimus and the left one broke when I took the leg off to even try to see if the thigh extenders could double up. So I didn't even bother trying to take the thigh extenders off the legs to fully see as that could've broken them more. The legs still stay on and I can even hit them with some glue but damn I hate most 3D printed stuff. Most pieces just do not have long term stability. Or even short term as I haven't had this set for long when compared to the set on GUOP. I thought with these newer models they'd be sturdier than the ones that broke quickly on Siege Ultra Magnus a few years ago but I guess not. Oh well.
