    First of all, I sent a PM to Elvin already.

    As I've again recently stated in a few threads, my favorite TF ever is Big Convoy. I've got Big, Black, and Nemesis, and they're all fantastic, IMHO.

    Looking at the latest collectors magazine, there's a section on Lucky Draws, including a partial list of them. On the list is Beast Wars Neo Blue Big Convoy (TV Magazine). This is news to me! I've never heard of it. Looking around, I've been completely unable to find anything about it, as far as I can tell, it doesn't exist.

    I'm begining to believe that this is an error, and not that I had somehow missed a (granted an incredibly rare) version of my favorite mold. Elvin doesn't have one, I can't find any website listing it, nothing. Anyone have any info, or if it does exist, pics?

    There was a blue Beast Wars Convoy. Never heard of a blue Big Convoy, though...

    I know :D  I could imagine your reaction. I would've fallen off the chair.

    No mention of Blue BC in any Japanese TF related sites (as far as my Google skill can find), and I have also posted a Q in Takara Community, so hopefully I can get a confirmation later.
    But I'd say it's an error.

    Yeah sounds like whoever made the list made a boo boo or was misinformed.

    Interesting, never heard of it. I wonder if maybe they just got "Beast" Convoy and Big Convoy mixed up? I know there's the Blue Convoy that Elvin has...

    It's not a mix-up, I don't think, since Blue Optimus Primal Ape is on the list and pictured in the article. (It seems, IMHO, to be a pretty good list.)

    It's just strange that I'd never heard of him, and I can't find anything about him anywhere on the web.

    UPDATE: I got a PM back from Elvin Pena, who says that it does exist, and he doesn't have one.

    Nuts. Guess I got a holy grail now.
