    The <a href="http://www.agesthreeandup.com/" target="_blank">Ages Three and Up</a> newsletter is reporting that Kiss Convoy <b>will</b> be die-cast afterall:

    <b>Another rising concern on preorders is the Convoy and Melissa figure. There has been talk of this being a plastic version of the Alternators Prime figure. I have received confirmation from Takara that is WILL be a part of the Binaltech line and will be done in Die-Cast. Images that have been shown to date are of prototype paint and was all done on an Alternators version of this figure. The final product will be done in Binaltech style.</b>

    That will be a relief to many. Not me, I'll be getting MP Starscream and any reissues that wind up on the schedule.

    "Die Cast... it's a lost art. " - Optimus Primal.

    Glad to hear he is going to be die cast, maybe his b-pillar will match better this time.

    The cynic in me wonders if Tomy are backpedalling...

    It also remains to be seen *how much* of it actually is Diecast. If it's anything beyond the crotchplate, i'll be somewhat suprised.

    I'd bet money that he WASN'T going to be die-cast. THEN Takomy saw what a huge loud outcry there was when the fandom found out that they panicked :lol

    Yeah, and more new molds, and rid of the bubble packaging, and better distribution, . . . .

    and rid of the bolts! Man, those things are a pain when 'bashing!

    But, still, one of (argubly, the) coolest TF line of all time . . .
