    Nice! Hopefully Takara won't gouge us... but they probably will. This mold has been released several times and aside from the packaging and plastic... it should be pure profit.

    I have the Nemesis Prime version of the mold from Universe 1.0. Such a cool figure if you can get past the shellforming.

    Never enough GEEWUN though. I do like G1 style figures. Just not at every cost. I find my MP Wheeljack sufficient. The new one has no details on the sides. And that is a miss. But still a good figure, would never bash anyone who likes it.

    Might pick this one up if price is reasonable. Not doing 100+ US for him though.

    I guess the dirt cheap Big Convoys from South Korea all dried up.

    Considering a bunch of them were subjected to water damage and were sold out of packaging, the "dried up" part made me laugh out loud.

    Big Convoy is an awesome toy with an imposing robot mode. Everyone should have a version of him.

    Have the original, so money saved.  Like the blue one though.

    Hell yeah, Big Convoy! I love the look of this figure, but I passed on the loose Korean ones which were available on eBay a few years ago. Good decision, this new version looks great.

    Man, I'll be able to finally watch Beast Wars Neo thanks to Karyuudo Fansubs project and I'll get a figure of Big Convoy himself too - awesome!

    Does this actually mean that they're doing the blue lucky draw version? Or are they just showing off the big blue convoy just because? He's my holy grail so I hope they actually release him!
