Very interesting indeed.
I've got the Combat hero version of the earlier mold as my cheapish SG Ultra Magnus, so i may as well sell the tokyio guy and buy this instead so i have one of each mold... untill i get the speed set containing this mold in yet another colourscheme
Well, Convoy doesn't become Nucleon Quest Super Convoy until after "Return of Convoy" but before G2. Since the current Takara fiction takes place between Masterforce and Victory, it's way too soon for him to have that body.
As for Black Convoy being the Voyager mold? Hell yeah. Just so long as that mold isn't used for actual Convoy, I'm happy.
Hmm.. I dont recall if Takara ever used the Deluxe Transforner Prime Hasbro mould in Optimus red and blue before.. As far as I know only Scourge versions of both the regular and super mode ones were released in Japan. I guess we can see a patern here.. maybe it will be the same with this Titans Return G2 Prime as well.. no Convoy/ Optimus and only Black Convoy? Eh... we shall see.
You've done well TakTom.
Yeah, because Takara doesn't just make whatever toys they want and shoehorn the fiction however they want. They'll make whatever they think will turn profit.
Who actually was surprised by this? Is what Takara does.
Then again, I hope they also release a better painted TR Laser Optimus.
And yet one was surprised.
I guess it was a case of when..not if..lol.
I'd think there would be way more demand for a new Black Convoy than a new Nucleon Quest Convoy.
While you're probably right, I'd bet there are still enough people that'd buy NQC to make it worth selling (maybe eHobby?).
On topic, I'm getting this to go with Baldigus. I think they'll look glorious together.
*Sigh* Takara and an exclusive of one of my favoritee characters. OFC I wont be able to buy it.
There is always Robotkingdom...or somebody helpful from the TFW2005 Boards and fellow plastic crack hoarders here to try and get one for you..heh heh.
Edit: Can some talented boardie do a quick digi bash of what G2 Titans Return Laser Prime would look like as Scourge/ Black Convoy?!
Awesome! I got the Tokyo Toy Show Black Convoy from two years ago and it is still stunning to this day. I understand why people would want a domestic release though. I would too, but seeing as this is a Tokyo Show exclusive I think we can count on it having the best deco possible just like Black Convoy did 2 years ago.
Honestly, I was hoping for a regular Takara retail release (or what passes for a retail release of the Legends line in Japan) of Black Convoy using this mold. I figure they are going to skip Laser Optimus, so I thought there was a chance they'd do it. Oh, well. I guess 5,600 yen isn't that much more than I'd pay for a regular Takara voyager.
It'll probably be $89-99 at US stores though. I don't have any real attachment to Car Robots, but depending on how it looks, I may get it.
That was a Christmas present from my wife early on in our marriage. A CHUG NQ Convoy would be a top priority for me.
This was predictable as fuck.... I expected it to be a TTS exclusive.
I doubt that, as we get some form of Black/Nemesis Convoy or Scourge every year now, and other than size I doubt anything modern will be an improvement over the RTS mold or original short of a actual Masterpiece mold.
I'm in for a new black convoy from the Titans return voyager
