Toy News: Takara Tomy reveals Big Blue Convoy TakaraTomyMall Exclusive

Back in July, Takara Tomy revealed a blue colored Big Convoy figure at its Wonderfest display, however no details were given on the figure beyond it being based on (but may not necesarily be a duplicate of) the Lucky Draw Big Convoy released in the 90's. This figure will be an "LG-EX" Takara Tomy Mall exclusive such as Grand Maximus. Here are some of the details from Takara Tomy Mall (via Google Translate):

Toy News: Amazon Japan lists "Encore" Big Convoy with stock photos

Amazon Japan has put up a listing for the upcoming "Encore" Big Convoy! This version of the figure will feature a deco based on his appearance in the "Beast Wars Neo" cartoon, featuring more yellow paint appliations and even cartoon-style eyes in beast mode (don't worry, they still look fierce!). Amazon Japan lists Big Convoy at ¥8,640 (about $77.72 USD) with a January 25, 2019 "on sale" (presumably "in stock") date.

BWTF Classic Review: "Beast Wars Transformers" Ultra Class Optimus Primal

Optimus Primal was introduced in 1996 and over the years the character has remained in Transformers lore in various forms. This year fans will have a new version of Primal thanks to last year's fan vote, making him the new "Prime". In anticipation of this, BWTF jumps back in time to take a look at the original Ultra Class figure. Check out my restored review with new comments and photos!
