    I wonder what the Orion Pax remolded part of the toy looks like or even what it represents. It would be kind of lame to have it completely unchanged. It would make sense for it to look like original OP. While it would make way less sense lore-wise, it would be cool if it represented some form of Hot Rod/Rodimus, to mirror how the original Star Convoy came packaged with the Micromaster version of Hot Rod.

    Ha! You're right! :lol 

    I'm not saying that the Cybertron inspired Siege Leader Optimus Prime is bad, because he isn't, but this is how you update a classic figure.

    If we’re going by show scale then commander scale does work for Tidal Wave however if it were video game scale then Titan class would be even better.

    theres an image of the core bots head, its a toy inspired g1 prime head, so the assumption is an evolution of prime to star convoy

    So I\'ve officially started obsessively studying MP Blackarachnia trying to figure out the transformation. I'm not close, but I think that her robot mode abdomen/stomach might become the beast mode head. So imagine that flipping down some how (looks like her crotch region untabs maybe allowing for clearance) with the double panels on her back unfolding to make most of the top of the back. Then the robot legs oragami themselves underneath that portion to fill out the sides of the spider. Arms/shoulder joints collapse inward to store hands underneath spider while keeping the beast legs in the right place. Hmmm speculate with me gents!

    That Star Convoy and SL Prime look awesome. I can\'t wait to see how they do superpants mode. I hope it\'s more faithful than the \"GF Prime\" that\'s being done.

    As much as I love the new armada prime, make no mistake, the day a hyper toon accurate MP version is released...well...lets just say it’ll be a freaking glorious day...and it’ll likely be the first (and only) time I buy every single repaint of a mold.

    This is the only reaction that I have. The only thought that passed through my mind when I saw this news.

    I see that Takara stated that Bee was not mistransformed.
    But looking closely at the feet, and all of those hinges, I\'m almost sure that those feet can collapse to a smaller size (making Bee just a tad taller).

    What deco are we expecting for Star Convoy? Original (white/yellow-orange) or Reissue (gray/yellow/yellow chrome)? Personally I'm hoping for the former.

    The only damn thing that matters.. we have at least some sort of updated Star Convoy! Something that hasn't ever got the attention it deserved. That's damn well enough gained. Even if it's not perfect, it's at least a step in the right direction.

    I found that a major downside of the reissue (never got it for that reason). I am sure they won't be doing such a silly thing again. :D
