    Same with mine. Other than that, I'm was surprised by how much I liked the smaller bot in hand vs looking at it in pictures and on youtube.

    Also, the matrix wouldn't stay connected with the two gun halves on mine--- I swappped the guns with POTP Nemesis Prime's, and the matrix fits nice and snug on Nemesis's, so it's a permanent swap.

    Wow. Didn't realize there was a problem with the inner robot's leg of Star Convoy falling off. Mine is fine, if just slightly loose (I've handled far worse). The larger problem with mine was that it didn't come with the trailer decals on the side. Kinda strange but not a deal breaker since I display him in robot mode anyhow.

    Were they supposed to come pre applied? Mine didn't have them either, but I also didn't search the box. Did yours come from tfsafari? Maybe they got some reject stock and that's why theirs were cheap?

    I honestly can't remember how mine came, but TFWiki does say "Unlike the original versions of the mold, Star Convoy's stickers come on a sheet instead of being factory-applied."

    The right leg on my star convoy was also fine but a bit loose. Nothing a bit of future floor polish cant fix.

    Also, the trailer sticker does not come pre applied. Your copy should have come with a sticker sheet that you would've needed to apply on the figure yourself. I believe this was intended to give the collector more of a choice on applying stickers or not. I hope you find ur sticker sheet.

    Good to know about the stickers, I didn't bother looking for a sheet because I dislike stickers anyway haha, so I really wasn't sure

    Mine came with the stickers (from Hasbro Pulse) but the stickers were shit. Thin and ripped easily. Already replaced them with reprolabels. The legs were loose on the smaller robot but that’s why I keep my bottle of future and a paintbrush next to my recliner :lol

    No, mine came from Pulse. if they're in the box, then that makes sense. I didn't check through everything.

    My sticker sheet was tucked inside the instructions (Star Convoy ordered from TSafrai).

    While we're on the subject on Reprolables stickers sets, I think King Poseidon deserves a set too.. unless I missed any announcements by them..

    They were probably waiting for the whole set to be released. I’m sure they’ll have something.

    Would love to see a King Poseidon G1 Masterforce style window retro packaging gift set down the road with anime accurate colours. I'd totally buy that set in a heartbeat. Make it a Tokyo Toy Show exclusive or Ehobby one.

    I bought the POTP Prime FOR ORION PAX and only for pax , had they not done him I would not have bought the toy , I was so happy they made it, but I hate it combining with the trailer, making it Optimus Prime. So I took out orion pax only and gave it to my son and put the rest of the box and items in storage


    So when I saw star convoy...... I bought star convoy for the cab prime only, then I removed the combine mode head and placed origion pax's combined mode head on it and then gave it to my son

    This way he has Orion Pax that doesnt combine cause he has no combined mode head on and a cab Optimus prime that does combine and when he gets tired of that, I will upgrade him for my boy with Star Convoys head and trailer !

    My Star Convoy has cleared customs in LA and is heading towards me. Slowly but surely.

    before star convoy, I removed Orion's head and replaced with Prime's. even made a center line to imitate his iconic window chest . Orion doesn't transform into a truck. prime does. so Orion got to go! P_20200605_221031_1.jpg
