    And it’s the original deco! Bought!

    Edit: there’s also some enhancement to the rear mammoth feet (on the bot hips). Looks like they extend out.

    How many times can one company rerelease a 20-year-old mould from a line that failed?

    The answer may surprise you.

    Probably because people want it.....?
    If they never did, I would never know I wanted an MP version.:)

    Anyone else feel like this is a troll move after getting the Encore version months ago? <_< If there was an option to buy the gun seperate I\'d probably bite, but I\'m not buying another version of the figure for the gun.

    Agreed, since I’m currently fresh out. But frankly I’ve loved every deco of this mold they’ve ever made.

    I own a Korean Big Convoy, so I don't really think I can swing this. This should have been included with the Encore.

    Never owned BC, always wanted to, hated the Encore deco, so this is perfect for me.

    Or it would be if it wasn’t a TT Mall exclusive.

    Interesting...does seem a bit mad(dening) that this is coming so soon after the encore edition...and it aint cheap! It's a shame they haven't made a version in encore colours available as a separate accessory pack.

    It is a great mould though and that Matrix Buster and Navi are real nice, great news for those who wanna shell out for it.

    It wouldve been better if they will release this with encore colors. Itll be a good stand-in for the MP japanese "beast" convoys. Will still get it anyway and ask if someone wants to swap for the orig color.

    0/10, no pictures of the matrix buster wedged into alt mode pretending to be his trunk.

    Hey, Hasbro, with Takara doing these, can we get a reissue of Nemesis Prime?

    Please?

    So glad this is the original toy deco and not a rerelease of the Encore version that came out 6 months ago... didn’t know what I was going to do with two of the same figure, but I’m more than happy to take a reissue!

    If you think the fact that I already own three Big Convoys, including one in these exact colours but without the gun, means I’m not going to buy this one, you massively underestimate how much I like Big Convoy.

    Well scrap. Guess I’ll have to get this at some point and review him again lol. Not that I’m complaining about it of course, given my choice of icon and username..

    As a fan of mofo-cannons, I think this deserves a special spot on the christmas list this year.
