    Does this figure have ankle tilts?

    Thanks!

    I can't wait to get my hands on this figure. Seems like it's a lot of fun

    I miss big, heavy and fun figures like this. Too bad we won't see engineering like this bot again, I know he's a shellformer but most organic beast wars figures were like that anyway. The fact that they're releasing a near identical redeco of the blue lucky draw just has me ecstatic, the lucky draw was my all time holy grail and I'm so glad I can finally have him at an affordable price! I pre-ordered him on bbts, can't wait for him to show up at my door!

    You do realize he’s the smallest of the 3 organic primes from beast wars right? He’s about voyager so I’d hardly call him big. Also very few of the American year 1 or 2 bw figures were shell formers, that was mainly a common thing in bw neo

    If you're talking about height then he's not the tallest but including overall mass he's gigantic. He's my favorite BW mold too, I love the aesthetics of the figure

    First look at the packaging from Tokyo Comic Con, looks a lot like the original :)

    He is a transformer of outright Mammoth proportions after all.

    It’s not too late! As someone who never had the original and see how highly regarded this figure is, it’s the one I am most looking forward in the next 6 months

    Yeah i know but it will mean further purchases, if I start delving back into reissues where will it stop!? I had the Korean Big Convoy for a number of years, it's a great figure but I eventually sold it. I've got to trust that my rational self did that for a good reason despite all the 'nostalgia feels' I'm getting seeing this box ;)

    That box is giving me warm and fuzzy feelings. I wonder if they will do a Sono Kong variant?

    The good thing about Megatron's delay is that Big Convoy will have all of my attention when he comes out. I bought a good amount of Beast Wars Neo toys once he was announced, started to like the toy line a lot because of them, and now I won’t have to wait long until the big boss himself arrives.

    At this point the only thing which could make this even better would be an Encore Magmatron release. Please, Takara!

    Man! I'm getting LG-EX one and I really hope that one will have, at the least, a decently looking box (because so far all LG-EX boxes have looked pretty...crappy to me).

    That would be terrific, but what are the chances? We've only been seeing Autobots in this line.

    But...maybe shouldn't take the chance and grab this just in case...
