    Oh no, I don’t want them doing real life cars. I just want to see them adapt the Sunstreaker and Ironhide/Ratchet toys into the same aesthetic that they’ve just done with Battle Convoy.

    Looks like if the Transformers had crash landed on Mars nd woke up when Human's started colonizing.

    Really hope they do Powered Convoy too. Though I wouldn't be surprised if they release Battle Convoy in some of the other color schemes they've done a lot. Like the original Tridasher deco (which isn't too different than his own deco) or the Shadow decos (black with gray, red, and blue) a lot of Triverse figures have.

    I can see multiple ports in V-Max for a Powered Convoy armor :D

    Passed on this but will see if there is another color variation. I sold most of Diaclones guys because way too expensive for long term collection. But i will definitely get Battle Gridman

    Yeah me 3, a Powered Convoy will certainly captivate my interests. The next question will it be a reissue of the core bot with a new armor trailer or both new core bot and trailer.

    Got mine yesterday, haven't had a chance to open him. His shipping box was much larger than I expected.

    I had to pass on this for now. I really needed a new phone after almost five years.

    I was thinking this is more like if humans started messing around with Transectors technology and built a army of replacement bodies for Convoy.

    My in-head canon is that it’s an alternate reality where Mt St Hillary never erupted and woke the Transformers up in 1984 and humans ended up finding the Ark and used the robots tech to create the Diaclone mechs.

    The set comes with the main bot (two parts), the trailer, two Dianauts, scenery and the "operating table". Everything else in the pic is sold separately.

    That would be dope. Personally (though I shudder to think how big and expensive it would be) I would be stoked if they had more "mecha" looking Diaclone Dinobots to counter the Warudaros "kaiju" mode. I mean, they wouldn't have to be 100% "dinosaurs" exactly--more like Mecha Godzilla style Diaclone versions of the Waruder beasts. But yeah, I could totally also see them doing a Battle Convoy V-Max style version of the Lambros for all the repaint potential--something just a bit sleeker than the Tridashers with a fast-looking robot mode.

    Outside of the trailer, this is what comes with battle convoy: 7DAF1A13-3566-4DDC-ADB4-C1CD8D339A6B.jpeg

    here’s another picture of that middle tray (the turrets were taken out): E80941EC-BA3D-4AF7-B3F0-0431864994DE.jpeg

    Has anyone shipped this from anime-export to the US? I'm curious what I have to expect for a shipping charge when I actually pull the trigger.

    In the past, it could get pricy so I would have a bunch of stuff built up to make it worthwhile.

    I just sort of discovered you can do that with them. It's like an unadvertised pile of loot! I have 2 Netflix Soundwaves with them, and am waiting for the Megatron water pistol to come out.
