    I knew those BW re-releases were nothing to get excited about. An easy pass.

    BT Black Convoy is heavy! He's got more die-cast than I expected. The hood, doors, fenders, bumper and the entire sides of the truck bed are all metal. Wonder how well he'll balance in bot mode.

    You know... if those RMs are part of what's being released in that set than I'm glade that I canceled my preorder.

    As for Megatron... my god that is so bad ass! If they had just stayed true to Starscream as much as they've stayed true to Megatron...

    Hmm... you know... I'm such an alt whore that those different paint aps on Black Convoy make me want to get him too. Wonder how much he'll go for on ebay? Or if BBTS is going to get some instock? Because he looks like a very very different character...

    Quite surprised they're re-releasing the RM molds rather than the Cybertron ones.

    They look great in those colours, but I don't think I can justify buying them again for what is essentially the same colour scheme better applied.

    Black Convoy does look kinda cool, and it'll be interesting to see how the die cast (and there's a lot) works with that mold.

    Megs is still love.

    Repainted RMs? Bah. They look awesome, but I just don't feel the need to purchase them again. So are the rest of the figures just higher detailed repaints of their original molds then? Meh.

    Problem is... if I got him... what would I call him? And, sense I have Nemesis Prime, should I bother getting Black Convoy? What do I do? Call NP Scourge and BC NP? I'm so confuzzled...

    So, Black Convoy is an actual BT release?

    Nice...

    After ditching Diecast for Kp, why would they go back to Diecast for a limited edition toy?


    I have this sneaking suspicon that it may end up as a retail product.

    I am hoping that BBTS will be able to get some BT Black Convoy to us for a reasonable price.

    That would definently be nice. Does anyone remember what NP cost through them the first time they got him? I'd expect the BC to be a little more expensive *it's Binaltech afterall*, but it'd be a good place to start at thinking of how much to put away for him...

    The first time was around $45 IIRC, because that's how I got my Nemmy

    So... add the usual BT mark up compared to an alt... brings it to $65... add about $20 to $30 for imports and maybe another $10 the way BBTS has been going with imported merch in general...

    Erk... hopefully he'll be cheaper than that, but, of course I'm just guessing... who knows?
