    So, I got Big Convoy at Botcon and while I really love him -- transforming him from robot into static hairy elephant is hard as hell.

    Found a few good videos online that show how to go from pachydermt to Robot (which is easy) but none that go the other way (which is very fiddly jigsaw puzzleish and not easy -- by comparison Longrack is much easier w/o instructions.)

    Love the toy, anyone know any youtube videos or clear instructions online? The paper instructions are very hard to follow. And don't go robot to beast.

    Thanks!

    ^you could always just pop 'em all off and peg them together as they are and get almost the whole alt mode just from the kibble and display the robot mode next to it lol.

    Cool figure, but damn shellformery.

    That's all shellformers are, one big cheat.

    It may be a shellformer, but I like how the parts actually look like they form armour around him.

    I have never much like Big Convoy. My one does not go well to beast mode. There are always some panels that seem misaligned.

    And most Takara toys that are made without Hasbro's involvement end up being shellformers.

    Seriously? o_O  I had it figured out in a hour. still takes a while to get right mind, not knocking ya Guard Convoy as i still don't have the hang of getting my ROTF Leader prime to go from Robot to Truck.

    With out instructions it was impossible to get them to line up. And those knee harpoons going off.

    I agree that the shell armor looks good on him or wouldn't Havd dropped 40 bucks on him.

    does cheating really matter in transformation?
