    thats not really a retcon, it was established back during the original airing of bw2 and bwneo that the were from further in the future than the original bw cast, so its logical to surmise that the events of bw returns happen prior to bw2.

    When I said retcon, I meant that in BW Neo, Cybertron is still mechanical, when in BM it was turned techorganic. Obviously the creators of Neo weren’t aware of what the creators of BM were going to do since BM was produced a year after Neo. So the retcon in this manga is that Cybertron is now (correctly) technorganic.

    I like that Blue Big Convoy refers to Big Convoy as Big Junior.

    So it doesn’t come with more than a two page spread? That kinda sucks after Convobat and Magna Convoy...

    Yeah ... did they leave it out ? Just dug out all three of their stuff . Is it because he’s the cheapest out of the 3? 267301BD-6668-4E64-B2A2-25A75F47C043.jpeg

    Probably didn't come with an additional comic because he's a TakaraTomy Mall exclusive instead of an eHOBBY exclusive like the other two.

    Mine just dropped into my POL at BBTS. Debating whether to wait for some other items to come in or ship it out now.

    Yes, that’s the Legends Manga. It’s only two pages.

    It's interesting that in this manga Blue Big Convoy is a completely different character than the E-Hobby comic's Primus Vanguard Leader, especially since the online prequel comic for the toy was about the latter. This basically means that a brand-new toy represents two distinct characters. Perhaps they just didn't want to continue the E-Hobby storyline? (Which is fine with me; I'm not a fan of E-Hobby stories.)

    Also, it appears that the rank of Convoy was created in honor of Optimus Primal. I had always assumed it was in honor of Optimus Prime.

    I messed up ordering from Takara tomy directly. It came to $110 shipped and I won't have it until next week. I didn't think retailers would get this so I played it safe.
