    I have the Nemesis and Ultra Mammoth versions of Big Convoy. Had the orginal years ago, but sold it awhile back. Been kicking myself ever since. :(  Now with this encore release, I can get him back. :) 



    That is if it doesn't cost an arm & a leg............& a kidney............& a liver..........& a left test....?!?!?! :eek:

    he's japan's equivalent of ultra, lio convoy and primal put that towards height and shit but big convoy mostly uses it for kibble, so he's a voyager robot wearing a huge coat.

    He’s the same height as MP Primal.

    I never pulled the trigger on one of the original Big Convoy's. I have Nemesis and Ultra Mammoth, though, but this may be time to add the original to my collection. (As long as the price isn't a complete joke).

    Not sure what the point of the blue one is really, but it's nice for those that like Lucky Draw replicas I guess.

    To be honest that's exactly why I want it. But then again I'm a sucker for wacky color variants. I'm one of the rare nuts who likes redecos and hates how many modern redecos are just variations of the same deco. Stuff like Blue Big Convoy is a treat because of how different it is.
    Truth be told though I'm also in the same boat as you; I have Nemesis and Ultra Mammoth but not a regular Big Convoy. Part of me actually wishes they'd have rereleased Black Big Convoy as well because his deco is also quite different from either the original OR Nemesis.

    He looks pretty damn sexy in those colors. Hoping he won’t suffer from any major QC issues like the God Fire Convoy set did.

    If they even do big blue, which i doubt they will, hed be worth a hundred or so to own. I mean the lucky draw one is around $1200-$3000 if you can even find one

    If I ever found the lucky draw for sale, I would buy him no questions asked. That's my #1 grail

    The blue version of Big Convoy was repurposed as a different character, the Primus Vanguard leader, in the E-Hobby comics.

    Primus Vanguard leader - Transformers Wiki

    Why would you think they aren't going to make him? He's right there in the photos along with the anime-colored Big Convoy.

    I just doubt theyd make it exactly the same as the lucky draw figure. The new green unicron even had changes from its lucky draw counterpart. I could be wrong, but i just dont see them making a figure exactly like a rare collectors give awat figure they did years back.

    I was thinking the same thing. Even if it's just a slightly different shade of blue, like how the upcoming Unicron of Light is a slightly different shade of green. It's the same for all intents and purposes, but there's just enough of a difference to tell them apart from the originals.

    I just looked at pics of the Lucky Draw BC, and there's little if any changes that I could see.

    already got two from Korea that are mint and in perfect condition still in their perfect boxes, so if the price is reasonable Ill pick one of these up but if they are crazy priced then no way

    That's craziness at a whole new level.

    Sure hope nobody bites at that price. (We sold couple of MIB & MISB specimens few years back & non of those ever went beyond USD $300 mark.)

    Yeah it's crazy. Most likely a buyer-seller collusion, but for what end, I don't know.

    Good to hear from you again dude! Big Convoy seems to have the ability to bring people together. :)

    *Waves hand*

    Good to see you around mate. :) 

    Would be interesting to see if that Ice Blue Convoy pushes through for a Encore Reissue or through some event/show exclusive piece. That's gonna be boss for me.
