Toy Review Update: New Photos and Comments for "Beast Wars Neo" Big Convoy

Today I present to you my updated review for Big Convoy from "Beast Wars Neo"! In addition to new photos I have added a small but of updated commentary to the review. Enjoy!

Toy News: SDCC 2019 "Generations" Shockwave and Lancer Revealed - UPDATED

With San Diego Comic-Con 2019 one week away, The Official Transformers Facebook Page has revealed the "Generations" exclusives to be sold at the convention! There will be two "Siege" figures: Leader Class "Galactic Man" Shockwave, based on a version of the Shockwave sculpt that was around in the 80's called (you guessed it) Galactic Man! The other figure is the previously revealed Lancer figure. Both of these are exciting and have been rumored for a couple weeks now.

Toy News: Takara Tomy Posts Official Stock Photos and Fantastic Artwork for "Cyberverse"

While the Cyberverse toy line has been out in many countries for about a year now, Japan has yet to see the release of some figures from the line. In a series of Tweets on their Twitter Page, Takara Tomy has posted official stock photos of the toys they are releasing soon. Even better? They also posted some beautiful pieces of artwork (presumably from the packaging) to go with the stock photos! The result is some cool eye candy for fans to check out!

During Toy Fair 2019, some fan media sites were able to take a photo of a table that featured several exclusive figures. Among these were mock ups of packaging for a line with a distinctive "35th Anniversary Special Edition" label. These boxes featured Optimus Prime, Soundblaster, Megatron and Bluestreak in what promised to be "Siege" redecos in "clean" colors minus the battle damage that the line is known for.

Toy News: Official Takara Tomy Photos of the "Siege" Off-Road Patrol

Unlike many upcoming "Siege" releases such as Omega Supreme, the upcoming Off-Road Patrol has not received a lot of fan fare. There was a reveal at Toy Fair Australia where CG renders of the figures were provided and that is pretty much it. Now thanks to Takara Tomy Mall we have official photos of the actual figures! This set features Powertrain and Highjump, each based on their G1 counterparts. The set is listed at ¥ 1,944 (about $17.91).

Since Toy Fair 2019 Transformers fans have had many photos of Omega Supreme to ogle at. However, many of these photos were partly dark photos from Toy Fair or CG renders. Now, thanks to Takara Tomy Mall we have some clear photos of Omega Supreme and Countdown! The photos not only give us a crisp look at their details, but we also get to see some pretty crazy articulation on Omega Supreme in an "action pose".
