    I've heard it is possible to order directly from Takara Tomy Mall, but you need to use a fowarding service or a middle man( like I'm using bbts) to have it sent to you. Not quite sure how it works, but others here know more about it than I do.

    Big shame there's no new artwork, just recolored old art. Even LG Optimus Primal had new art

    Can't wait for this guy, he looks so good!

    That's Legends though, this is Encore. Kinda defeats the purpose of recreating the original packaging if you use new artwork.

    The blue one is LG-EX, the anime colored one is Encore.

    With these two added to my collection, I will have five versions of the mammoth mould.
    Sonokong Big Convoy
    Universe 1.0 Nemesis Prime
    TFCC Ultra Mammoth
    LG-EX Blue Big Convoy
    Encore Big Convoy

    That's a lot of hairy pachyderms there. :)

    I have no connection to this character and never watched the Japanese Beast Wars shows, but something about Big Convoy has always seemed very cool to me. Just a really cool toy. I have long hoped for a Masterpiece of Big Convoy but man, that is looking like more and more of a longshot. A Big longshot. I might buy this.

    I think an MP version is probably more likely than you think since he seems to be a big deal character-wise in japan and they have already shown that BW era characters as MPs will sell

    I would luv to get this just for the back package art.  It would depend on how much it is.  I already have the Vs set with Magmatron and the Universe Nemesis Prime version.

    This is a great looking figure despite the shellformer nature of it. Nice that some of our younger members get their chance to have a brand new one- hopefully at a better price........ Although, it’s probably not that hard to find an MISB on ebay if you really want it.

    It’s weird being so old that I already have the original in perfect condition. Bragity brag brag... uh, I guess.

    Another one that was really unique from this line was “Heinrad”, a time altering racoon with a clock on his stomach. I wonder if they will reissue any of the others.

    love it! really hope they keep up the idea of reissuing older prime/convoy toys maybe even venture into Megatrons/galvatrons etc. I'd love to see Leo Convoy next!

    I wanna see them do Lio convoy in his minty Neo deco to be honest. And since they've been doing stuff like Blue Big Convoy and the doppleganger Unicron it'd be fitting
