    The Big Convoy Mold I wouldn't mind seeing again, but We don't need another Optimal Optimus ........


    What there need to be is a Gray version of the Big Convoy Mammoth......that would be cool.

    I wouldn't mind a remold of both. A smaller Primal Prime with better articulation and cannons that fold/retract like they did on the show. I'd love to see Big Convoy is his Cybertron mode or at least remolded to be a transmetal.

    Both would be nice; I'm not too fond of paying $30+ for them each on eBay.

    Why I wouldn't mind seeing both as new repaints :)  If I'd be buying or not is a different matter, though I always like looking at repaints.

    Primal Prime/Op Op would get a resounding "meh" from me, but i'd love to see Big Convoy get another go. Great mold.

    I wouldn't a Beast Machines Megatron OpOp, but not a straight up repaint or reissue.

    I'd be up for another Big Convoy. Hell, I'm up for all the BWNeo molds. (Break, anyone? Damn bird is a pain in the ass to find)

    OpOp... Not so much. Too big and clunky, IMO. Scale it down to be Voyager sized, though, and there might just be something I'm interested in.

    No, not really. What more colors do you need him in?

    For Big Convoy, aS many as possible!!!! ITS ONE OF THE BEST TF FIGURES EVER!!!!!

    My favorite Prime to date!!

    Besides he had what 3 releases...most of the other tf toys have released and repainted like 5 or so times. I rather get a good figure repainted than all the other garbage they repaint.

    I would, only because I never owned the big Convoy mould. But what could he be repainted as?

    Primal Prime/OP OP. Why bother? What could they repaint him as? I guess Nemisis but that mould might not look all spectacular in black.

    If I were you, I wouldn't contact Habro and suggest it. They don't take suggestions from outsiders, as they're afraid that if they were to take the suggestion, the person who suggested it would then take legal action against them. Sounds kinda sad, but it's the truth. As for the question, I really don't have any interest in either mold, but if they were to release either one in a color scheme that would interest me, there's a chance I would get it. I'm more interested in getting ahold of the reissue of Armada Unicron that'll be coming out.

    I read through this thread and don’t understand the hate for the Optimal Optimus mould. I love a nemesis repaint of that mold. May be Black with red highlights! Big Convoy is one of my favorite moulds and Black Big Convoy is still among the jewels of my collections including my LDs. However, Big Convoy mold was already used in the original Universe line. Now a Hasbro repaint of Lio Convoy would be more than worth it.
