    Odd. I take it this is not a reissue, and I just didn't hear about it?
    Whatever it is EVERYONE should own this mould, it's superb.

    God damn it. I told myself, "after Cyclonus, no more until MP Grimlock." God damn it.

    Yeah, I saw this last night. Wonder if it's a re-release or a wharehouse find.

    So Black Convoy and exlusive scourge in the states....besides the Con and Bot stickers and the pointy sword on black convoy, is there any other difference?

    What does everyone else have or prefer? i dont have the mold yet but i'm looking at buying.

    What exactly is a warehouse find?

    Exactly what the name implies. Somebody finds a bunch of old stock somewhere in the warehouse that nobody knew was there.

    I bought him for $40 with shipping included a year ago... He's still one of my favorite figures.

    the sword is more sharp at the end, the plate on back of the tanker, he dont wear a logo in truck mode, he have more ice-blue deco on the hood, in robot mode, the stickers are silver-metalised instead of white, he wear the G2 inversed autobot logo (who is the renegade logo in Car-robot), he have the logo on each disk (i have to check that, im dont sure), the color of clear parts is red, instead of magenta.
    and he's the most show accurate, also a very nice box.

    It's not reissued from TakTom. I wonder how the chrome is if they have been in a warehouse for so long, I heard some of those figures had problem due to the condition the stock had been kept under. It's a while ago and this surely is from different place, though.

    It's still the greatest black Prime figure to me, hope there's no problem and lots of people will score :)

    Sounds like some people need to be re-trained on their logistic duties.

    Yeah if this was a reissue i think it would say so .. Im going with it being a wearhouse find or they bought a few off people trading them in for other toys .. Either way i highly recommend the figure. I bought mine when they first came out before RID hit the states..
    Awesome Figure..

    awesome not a bad price either I got mine in a trade awhile ago along with Armada Unicron id like to have another just cause mines cab isnt in the best of shape

    but yea to me its the best Prime mold (I dont have any MPs yet)

    and I never realized till reading this but the sword is diferent on the Hasbro/Takara release?

    also since were on this subject does anyone think its possible to take a G2 Laser Primes electronics and implant them into BC? imo thats possibly his only fault I want a light up sword dammit

    Maybe they got a bunch from Toyarena ... Look like around the same price they have theirs for. Too bad they didnt find any CR Fire Convoys I'd be on that and Magnus in a sec.

    Yeah I think CR SFC's plastic looks better than RID version.

    The Big Convoy they listed along with it a few days ago said warehouse find, so I assumed the Black Convoy was in the same batch.

    It's a shame they didn't find any Brave Maxes.

    Yeah, it's a warehouse find... they listed Big Convoy alongside him and if you look around they've also got God Magnus for Preorder along with a bunch of other BW Neo figures too.

    Myself, I went ahead and ordered Black Convoy (sold my Scourge awhile ago and sorely regret it), Big Convoy and God Magnus... they've got Micron Legend Shockwave too and I'm thinking about adding him to my order... not so sure yet.
