    A couple weeks ago when KOtoys announced they were closing I jumped at the chance to get the KO Wonderfest Convoy since it would probably be my last opportunity to get him.

    I wanted to get a RID Scourge sword for him because I thought it would look bad ass. I found one on ebay, but when comparing pics at ridforever.info and siebertron this sword looks... A bit pink.

    Basically do you think this sword here is faded, or is it camera making it really pink?

    Looks like the one in the pic could be Car Robots Black Convoy's sword.

    IIRC, it was more of a pinkish-red while RID Scourge's was a deeper red.

    I think it looks pink because its the Japanese sword judging by the pointy tip.

    That's Black Convoy's sword. His trans-red was pinker, and his sword had a pointy tip.

    Thanks guys. I didn't even think to check the Car Robots Black Convoy. I guess I'll hit up Darkov. Looks like he has just the shade of red I'm looking for.

    Sorry Nemesis I ended up not bidding on this one. In retrospect I guess I should of so I could send it to Darkov and have him make a red one that's not rounded at the end.

    No problem, I'll keep looking for one. I wanted a pointy sword instead of the rounded one. I got this one from Darkov last year. I would have gave it to you but gave it away with a Lazer Prime I sold.

    Excuse the crappy pics.
