    Anyone kind enough to list the items we're seeing, for those of us who aren't as familiar with these characters? :oops:

    Sure:

    • First page: Encore series God Fire Convoy

    • Second page, left side: TT mall exclusive Grand Maximus on the top, Greatshot on the bottom

    • Second page, right side: Encore series God Fire Convoy again, this time split into his individual compartments, Super Fire Convoy on the top left and Fire Convoy on his right, God Magnus under those and God Fire Convoy again on the very bottom

    • Third page, top: RC Squeeks form The Last Knight

    • Third page, middle: Takara Legends Seaspray with Headmaster Lione, Topspin with Targetmaster Peacemaker, Twin Twist with Targetmaster Spoilsport (from left to right)

    • Third page bottom: The clear version of Voyager Optimus Prime from The Last Knight which will be sold with the home media release I believe, Masterpiece Dinobot teaser and the Beast Wars Megatron Statue from Prime 1 Studio

    • The last page has an interview / article with / about the voice actor of God Magnus who holds the new version of God Fire Convoy in the picture; he recorded new voice lines for the toy.

    For a minute there, I thought that was an MP Beast Wars Megatron.



    Dammit.

    If you're interested, Karyuudo Fansubs has completely subbed Car Robots (and they did a mighty fine job if I might add), you can find their blog through Google and the last time I've looked they had uploaded their work to YouTube as well. As for the western version, "Robots in Disguise", I have no idea if that was ever officially released on DVD/BluRay.

    And I'm with you, I really want to get this as well, it looks like an awesome set!

    It's a Masterpiece in its own right, but I would've preferred a transformable version from Takara Tomy too ;)

    Encore God Fire Convoy is SUPER tempting. It would be even more tempting if the set came with extra tires to fix the old toys. :O

    It was released on DVD in the early 2000's, but only in Region 2. I bought mine while living in the UK for a while.

    You must be fairly young to have missed Transformers Robots In Disguise / Car Robots which came out in 2001...

    Either that or he comes from a country where the series wasn't a thing, it was never aired in Germany for all I know and I don't remember seeing the toys either, although they might've released some of them regardless.

    God Fire Convoy...!!! One of the best of the best. It's nice to see Takara revisiting a non-G1 piece that a lot of newer fans may have not have noticed.

    The parts that are no longer chromed on the Encore, they look like they might just be molded plastic. I'm pretty okay with that. I was never a huge fan of the chrome to begin with.

    God Fire Convoy looks SOOOOOOOOO good without the massive amounts of chip-away chrome all over him. It's gonna put a dent in the wallet and the display space, but I feel like I'm gonna have to even though I have the old RID releases.

    Lookin' good! :thumb  Thanks for the scans! :D 

    The sooner I pre-order Twin Twist from Takara, the sooner I can find the Hasbro one! Because that's how it works in the Midwest - I give up on finding a Hasbro toy locally, and just when HLJ sends me the ship notice, I'll find the Hasbro toy in a local Target! :lol  :banghead:  :cry  But the silver lining here is that I am in love with those Target Masters, so it's definitely pushing me into the BUY IT NOW territory! :)

    Thanks for the scans. I wasn't too fond of God Fire Convoy the first time around, but I admit it looks alot better now without all the chrome on the torso in Convoy's normal robot mode. Greatshot is also looking good. That one I will definitely be getting.
