    Same here. Big convoy is a boss. I like pretty much all of the BWN designs, so doing any Japan exclusive BW designs is a great start.

    Apparently this is how the vast majority of women in Japan stand and walk, with their feet pointed inward in a pidgeon toed stance. I've heard reasons ranging from it looking more feminine (being considered graceful and attractive), being a cultural trait passed down from mother to daughter, and the way they sit allegedly altering their leg bones, which apparently also causes bow-leggedness. It's also easier to walk wearing a kimono if your toes are pointed inward.

    Only up to a point. Stuff like the Unicron Trilogy shows, Animated, Prime, and the Bayverse are all still separate continuities from G1 in Japan, although through the recent Legends comics there was a bit of crossing over to be had.

    hhhmmm.... maybe when I'm bored enough I'll try to grab a few people and try to loosely link every single TF continuity in some ridiculous way, sounds dumb enough to be fun. :p

    The original Big Convoy toy seems to scale pretty well with MP Lio Convoy.

    Nice! Forgot about Artemis! She's like the space ship AI guide for the BW2 Maximals! Kinda like a Ti Ai from Car Robots.

    She’s not much of a guide as she never interacts with any other character besides Moon through the entirety of BWII.

    I think she interacted with Lio Convoy at least...

    Edit: Hope Artemis has her giant toy hammer too...

    I think that’ll be smaller than Lio Convoy though. And Big Convoy was kinda big.
    She talks to Lio Convoy a fair bit. I actually just watched the episode where they go into the temple and she tells them about what’s going on.
    Well she is a big step up compared to other Spike figures. Given how she has more detail and will probably be bigger.

    So excited for this. Love the anime accuracy. Not sure why a lot of people aren’t liking it... if you like the original figure because he’s more “vicious” looking (more American/western appeal), you don’t have to buy this.
    Looking forward to Artemis as well! I love getting characters never released in toy form before :D

    Surprised they gave her a face. Takara usually likes to give the human figures that comes with MPs featureless, melted faces
