Erm, those were toys, not Transformers. I'm talking actual Transformers. ;)

still qualifies as an armada though
Note that I also said "from the initial planning stages". Those Sound Wave toys did not come about until season 3. Initial production of the Animated cartoon only went as far as season 2.

Not of Transformers. Any non-Transformer army does not matter in this discussion, as they aren't the focus of the various series. Otherwise I would have mentioned the various alien races or organic lifeforms seen in other series.

And they were part of the initial planning stages, as I said:

My best guesses would be either:
A) Hasbro had something else planned for the end of the show since the beginning
or
B) Armada is in reference to the Minicons

The were developed a little later. Would have counted Cybertron for this if the Scrapmetals had come along much earlier in the series. ;)

That's a very good possibility. Since Unicron's inclusion came about at a much later stage in the planning, I do wonder what Hasbro and Takara* originally had in mind for where this series would go before it was decided to shift to a Unicron plot.


* -- I say both since this series was a joint venture between the two and the first time both companies actually worked on a TF series together in near unison. 8-)
