VERY COOL! Sorry if this is old news, but this was the first I heard.
No shit. That's great for all the foo's that skipped the first batch, or are like me and want a boxed one. Funny how Hasbro is re-releasing the impotent stack version and then TomyTak is beating Hasbro to the punch with the true MASTER PIECE (Takara's awesome spelling) CONVOY.
Was this one ever released with the black rifle?
No, the Masterpiece one only came with a grey gun.
I can't seem to find anywhere on the site that says it's a re-release??? Help???
The have in the new items section from the link on the homepage. It has it listed as a "June Restock." that can only mean one thng....more are being produced. HLJ takes items off their site when they are discontinued or not-available. Them relisting it is a damn good indication that it's back in production.
Cool, thanks for the heads up...
Thanks for the info. This means I'll pass.
Just noticed that the images on the HLJ page are of the battle damaged version. I wonder if they just bought some of the battle damaged stock and don't have the correct box image.
The robot is a 20th anniversary one but the alt mode is an MP??? :huh
No, I'm sure the image is just old stock photography form the first go around. They're probably pictures that were taken just before US 20th Prime was released; you know, at a convention of some sort.
holy poop. As soon as BBTS flashes a "pre-order", I'm on it.
wouldn't surprise me if this is merely the new release for the UK, which would mean the 20th anni version not the takara one.. AND would make sense!
Until a preorder is seen for MP Convoy elsewhere, you may want to take this with a pinch of salt.
To be frank, HLJ have a tencency to take orders for things they aren't able to supply. I'm not saying they won't get any... but they may not get as many as is people might think.
Says in description.
Stock Status: June Restock
Originally Released: December 2003
also included is a paper craft container (the inner box is printed and meant to be broken down to form the 'trailer' of the truck - instructions are on the sides), and a set of joint parts. A bonus collector's card is also included.
so therefore it must be MP-1
already pre-ordered mine
need to keep a "MISB" since i opened and played with my first one i got in 2004
Whoa! I hope the reissue's gun is "black" in colour!!! That's my only minor complaint about MP-01...
Cool...good news for the people who didn't get one in the 1st place. MP prime is better then the hasbro version is if the hasbro one came with the black gun..big deal, it is just an accesory. THe hasbro one has tiny stacks and that ugly battle damage. MP prime is a nice clean Proportionate figure. I already have two My 1st one came with a broken stack right out of the box...so BBTS gave me half off another..which i had to open when I got it to make sure the stacks were not broke...so now I have two. One that I fixed and one that is MIB.
hey liger, i guess those rumors thats been circulating in SG forums has weight after all.
for the good actually. i was getting woozy at the recent hike in MP convoy prices locally.
I bought one originally, then sold it off thinking I didn't need both the Hasbro and Takara versions. Maybe I'll nab one this time around. I wonder if they'll fix the "teh" error on the box this time around.
BBTS has a pre-order for it up now too. I just put mine in about an hour ago.
