    I know there are many people with character focused collection. I have seen many awesome Prime/Convoy collections here. Orodruin does Rodimus figures. Planetjacker has lots of Starscreams.

    There's no way I can be like them, but recently I have been lucky with some Big Convoy oddities and this is probably as complete as my Big Convoy collection can be, as I have no means to obtain Lucky Draws/Test shots/Prorotypes.

    I am still hoping that I'll one day get the SD keyring and Kabaya Beast Wars Selection Big Convoys, though.

    Black Big Convoy, Big Convoy. Of 3 PVCs, the ones on the left and right are Beast Wars Real Figure kit (gaming arcade prize) by Takara Amusement). The one in the middle is Beast Wars Real Figure by Takara.

    The one with very uplifting colours is Korean plastic kit by Sun Confectionery. I am guessing this is the same as Super Beast Wars kit (which I don't have) with different colour plastic. Not sure if this product is legitimate.
    SD one is Takara Beast Change kit, the last one is a water squirt by Kabaya.

    update 2013 - current lineup

    Thank you for looking, and if you have other Big Convoys, please share :)

    Cool. I really like those little nontransfoming 'action' figures in that first group shot. Any articulation on those?

    I don't know why Nemesis Prime is not part of his pictures but I'm sure he owned it at one point in time. Since he loves that mold, I doubt that he sold it.

    PS Black Big Convoy blows Nemesis Prime out of the water!

    Have always heard a fair bit of good about this mold. I may just have to pick him up at some point, though between him and Black Big Convoy..well gotta go with the black'n.

    How much does either usually go for?

    Been looking at them on eBay for a while, and there's consistently auctions for the Korean version where the Buy It Now price is $40. I think that's a reasonable price considering the Japanese ones are going for nearly twice that, even though the difference between each is pretty much the packaging.

    Indeed I have U Nemesis Prime. He's not included because, well, he's not Big Convoy. Actually I am not treating that guy very nicely. He's not even kept in the plastic tub for my "Specials" :lol

    The arms can sort of go up and down. The arcade prize figure can swivel at the waist. They are both painted quite well :)

    Thank you for the confirmation. I haven't even seen a picture of the real deal.

    Mine's Sonokong (Korean) version. I love the big box he comes in :)  I think mine cost me about $24 (+ about the same for the international shipping) a couple of years ago.
