I like him
Found these guys at my nearest Target today.
The transformation process is more complicated and fun than I thought.
Welcome to TFW! Post some pics once you are able to!
Welcome to TFW. I'm guessing you mean Big Convoy, who's not an Optimus Prime, but a descendant character and star of Beast Wars Neo. For a while, Black Big Convoy was my favorite Transformer, I recall a friend timing me once, I got the transformation down to 48 seconds.
So far I've resisted the sirens call for the Animated colors, but the price reductions on both the anime colors and blue version that was once so very limited is tempting.
Welcome aboard bud.
And also a welcome to TFW from me (fitting considering my avatar).
The figure you have is Big Convoy, the leader of the good guys in the Japanese Beast Wars neo series. The good guys were then iknown as the Maximals and the series takes place long after the end of the original Transformers series.
Although Convoy is the Japanese name for Optimus Prime (coming from the pre-Transformers line Diaclone where the the toy that became Optimus Prime was a lifeless mech codenamed Convoy because he was a truck), it's not actually THE Optimus Prime, but close enough. Big Convoy is the supreme commander at that time. He's actually a pretty badass leader.
If you want to know more about the character, click his link here, which will take you to the Wikipedia for Transformers and his specific page.
Welcome enjoy your stay
The Waspinator is not new, but felt appropriate given the other two buys
You're MP came with a puppy? That's awesome!
it’s just the KO OS version that’s sniffing out the competition
I'm approaching the point where I follow more dogs than people on Instagram.
Needed some extra Constructicons for Devastator. Plus I wanted another Shatter and Dropkick for alt mode display. This was from Meijer and last week’s Target sale. Plus the Starscream off EBay
Sold a few bits on the eBays so thought I’d try to catch up with the Siege stuff I didn’t have yet and finish off the Super-Skrull BAF. Only Siege Stuff I want that I don’t have or have put away yet is Crosshairs and Spinister.
Barricade absolutely OWNS that mold.
Got some goodies in. Decided on going with Gigas because I love the size and Chrome!
picked up some cyberverse..
