    Tried searching but didn't find a clear answer. Is there a Nemesis version re-issue coming?

    I opened my Blue Big Convoy up this weekend. It'd been a while since I transformed any version of this mold, so I'd forgotten how weird it was, yet also oddly fun. Mammoth hind legs kept popping off, but otherwise it wasn't bad for a shellformer, and my fourth version of this mold. My only irritation is the top missile in the cannon won't properly lock in; the spring keeps wanting to shoot it out so I have to use the buttflap to keep it in the cannon.

    The Nemesis Prime version was a Hasbro Target exclusive. There’s been no mention of it ever being reissued.

    I just Impulse bought Big Convoy Encore and then read he's ultra class. Is he much taller than a regular voyager? Maybe some comparison pics? Thanks in advance.

    He’s about the size of pre siege voyagers. He was always a small ultra

    I finally opened this guy up after having him for a few months. Was excited to get this figure given the pics I had seen about him and all the features I heard about. That being said, I don't have the benefit of nostalgia glasses since it is my very first experience with the figure.

    While the sculpt and the features are impressive, and I am sure my child-self would love this figures, especially with all of the gimmicks, I am a little bit disappointed, primarily because the parts don't lock into place in bot mode and the mammoth kibble just sort of hangs there (mammoth legs on hips, calf flaps on sides, calf legs on back on bot mode legs). Also the rifle is very unwieldy. It is nice for what it is (a creatively designed piece of TF history), but not an adult-friendly, collectors toy, IMO.

    Also, what is the deal with the yellow round trigger for the rifle? Sometimes I turn it and it only shoots one missile. Then I ratchet it back and forth a bit and it only shoots the other. I am using it incorrectly?
