    Hybrid Convoy was always the one figure I was unsure about... The vehicle mode is absolutely terrible, but the alt. mode seems to make up for it by being so poseable. And I did own Hybrid Galaxy Convoy and thought it was a wonderful figure.

    I dunno, maybe if I can get the e-Hobby Black Convoy for the G2 head I would consider it.

    The Hybrid line was a fantastic subline. Resurrecting it to give us an Ultra Magnus or Megatron would be awesome, but I'd rather see more Convoys made in this line. Can you imagine a THS Victory Saber, chock full of detail, and diecast?

    Oh okay, that's good to know. I was frightened when I did that quick check on THS-01. I picked up the other two for $50 and $70...hopefully down the road I can pick up the Galaxy Force one too for a decent price somewhere.

    I have both figures - I actually popped Galaxy Convoy on Ebay (wasn't a series I cared much for) but had zero interest. Guess he isn't that popular in the UK...

    I have 2 THS02 figures though, one for the cabinet in my office and a sealed one. It's probably one of my top 10 TF's ever, simply due to how much they packed into it. It's just gorgeous.

    Nope, but they did post a pre-order page for $69.99: THS-02 Hybrid Style G1 Convoy - Transformers Hybrid Style Hybrid Style at BigBadToyStore

    More evidence of a re-issue perhaps?

    vehicle mode = alt. mode to most collectors.

    Alt-mode = not the robot
    Bot-mode = the robot

    At least, that's what I've been running on for years. Having said that, the point you are making is dead on. His vehicle mode is pretty junky and his bot-mode is totally kick-ass.

    I've wanted one of these every since I saw one. Hopefully they'll reissue Galaxy Convoy as well as coming out with new figures like Ultra Magnus, Seekers, Megatron, and maybe a Wheeljack, though most of that is wishful thinking.
