Are we EVER getting that new Armada Optimus Prime?!
Yeah, Takara began their BW dub before the end of the first season, which caused some issues with the writing process. They decided to wait for season 2 to be finished, before they began working on the dub. So they created BW2 and Neo to fill the gap.
Couldn't they have included this with the Encore version?
I think I bought that one for nothing.
I mean, I already own three of him, and I know of plenty of other fans who own more. So yeah, I guess he is that popular.
What is up with the hip mounted beast mode leg having that tech detail?
Good things come to those who wait.
I have the same question about where to get this. Any inkling that this might be a Pulse shared exclusive like Star Convoy, or is this a Tak Mall exclusive *exclusive*?
TFSource has it up. I have a feeling anyone who wants to pick this up will have to rely on sites like them, BBTS, TCP, etc
Transformers Encore - Big Convoy - Matrix Buster Version
Ah okay, thanks for the heads up!
Kinda wanted a Big Convoy since I saw the last reissue. Maybe the release of this guy lowers the price on the other one. I'm not really interested in a clunky cumbersome accesory that iirc only appeared in one episode
Will this be on Amazon JP?
On the fence but will probably cave since I'm a sucker for reissues.
Through a third party seller eventually, maybe. Not on Amazon Japan proper, being a TTM exclusive.
Oh man, it's a Taktomy Mall exclusive?
It is in the thread title after all.
I'm probably get him through bbts.
Not only am I on the fence about buying him since he's a TTM exclusive, but now I feel like a dumbass. Thanks geekatron!
theres a possibility of him going up on pulse, they've been getting some of the ttmall exclusives
True, but I would say Amazon Japan (in theory) would have a better price off retail, no?
I'm basing this off how much I paid for the other reissue Big Convoy.....
hasbropulse would theoretically have an equivalent price to ttmall, amazon japan would likely be marked up since they would not be selling it directly but only through 3p resellers and the like.
looks like it's been remolded to extend, maybe to serve as more convincing guns in robot mode?
on a related note, i know big convoy has holes on the bottom of his rear mammoth feet. any chance they can fit siege effects?
