    I know there are many people who detest repaints. I don't hate repaints myself, but I don't normally buy them, either, unless I like the original mould very much.

    But this is the mold I really love. I had to have the black version.

    The first impression I had after I transformed him (his beast mode doesn't look that different from U Nemesis Prime) was;
    This is the same colour scheme as a Japanese family Buddhist altar, where we worship our ancestors.

    But anyway...

    And his golden eyes work great with light.

    3 versions from 3 countries. (My Big Convoy is Korean.) But after playing with the black version, I feel my Big Convoy is somewhat lesser quality. His joints seem to be much looser. I recall we had this discussion a while ago (Hello, Cata1, I think it was your thread :) ), but I can't remember if anyone had both Korean and Japanese Big Convoy. I would really like to know if this really is the case as now I am thinking of getting Takara one.

    Yes, my Nemesis Prime is incomplete. :redface2: 

    More pics (not much better, I am afraid)

    I got the Black version a few years ago and love it.

    Also picked up Nemesis as well, just missing the first one, who I might pick up at some point.

    I wish that they had done the black version with the teal highlights for the Target one. I hate the ugly brown they have used since changing the name from Scourge to Nemesis

    Awesome pics mand and congrats on the BBC.

    Always wanted one of those. I feel the same on the repaints , I like them but I don't have to have them. Love all the black and fire repaints though.

    Big Convoy is so awesome. I forgot how to get mine back to mammoth mode.
    The big cannon is throwing me off lol

    Great stuff. I would have thought the black version would be too similar to Nemesis Prime, but no. He makes a great addition to your Big Convoy collection. Makes me want to run out and get one myself. :D 

    And like you, I have the Korean Big Convoy. I have no Japanese Big Convoy to compare it too, but the quality on mine seems identical to my US Nemesis Prime.

    I've got two Takara Big Convoys, (one sealed, one opened) and a Nemesis Prime. Never had a chance to get Black Big Convoy. He sure looks awsome though. This was one of the best molds out of all of Beast Wars.

    Looking good! I've been meaning to get a black one for some time now, but I never saw one at a good enough price.

    Thanks guys!

    Yeah CM, I can't put them back to mammoth, either. It's time I consult the instruction sheet. But I am hopeless, my Break's pengiun mode is foever ajar.

    Primeconvoy1, thank you for the pic :)  You even have those cannons attached :thumb  I wanted to include them in my pics, but they make the figures even bulkier.

    For some reason this thread sounds naughty. :p  All kidding aside this mold is awesome, and the black and gold trim makes him look more wicked.

    :lol  How so? I am so pure I can't hear anything naughty, must be your ears :p 

    But honestly, look at those Big Convoys. I felt inferior to toys taking pics of those abs.
    *Looks at own flab*

    C_C, I suppose the cheapest ones will be either Korean Big Convoy or U Nemesis Prime. I got them for about the same price.

    And while I am here I might as well post one more picture :D

    There's really very little difference. The joints *might* be a bit looser overall, but within themselves, they're more than tight enough.
