    What do you mean?

    You can't have the hook missiles in mammoth mode? Mine can store them (clicked in) fine.

    Well shoot, I guess I’m just doing it wrong.

    And yep, just tried it again and I was able to get them all stored up in beast mode. I've edited my original post.

    I had some sprue marks on mine as well. Was actually able to get rid of them by applying some heat from a hair dryer. Just wanted to drop that in as an alternative if anyone doesn't want to go the paint route.

    Got mine last week. I gotta admit, Big Convoy isn’t the best Transformer ever made, that entire mass of kibble do makes it difficult to articulate the robot, but I still love him. I adore the mammoth mode, the gimmicks in robot mode and all this glorious sculpting brought out by a great paintjob. Plus, thanks to this guy I did buy a few Neo figures and haven't regretted it. So even if Big Convoy himself isn’t the second coming of Primus, I do enjoy my little venture into Beast Wars Neo toys and the resulting Maximal display :)

    Makes me happy to see new fans getting big convoy, always liked this toy

    That's a big oof. If its any consolation the big cannon doesnt shoot those missiles in the show at the very least, just lasers

    Mine arrived today. He’s awesome. I already owned the original, so this my second one, and he’s just as much fun the second time around. Probably going to grab the blue one too, and the rest of his mould mates sometime down the line. What can I say? I really like this figure.

    Edit: After reading through some of the other comments, it’s worth noting that mine does not have loose feet. In fact, they seem to be tighter than on my original (which to be fair is quite old, and the Sonokong version). No other quality control issues to mention at this point.

    I have Sonokong Big Convoy, Nemesis Prime, Ultra Mammonth and the reissue Big Convoy with the Big Blue Convoy on the way. I might be a bit bias by saying yes... :lol
