Formed when scanning a protoform and Optimus Prime at the same time, Black Convoy is an evil reflection of the heroic Autobot leader. He hopes to unite the Destrongers and acquire power at any cost! Today I bring you a review of "Legends" Black Convoy!

Toy Reviews: "Robots in Disguise" Spychanger reviews restored with new photos

Several years ago BWTF went dark for a year out of legal obligation to a former partner. When the site was relaunched, several old reviews did not go back up for various reasons. Over time I have worked to restore some of these reviews with new photos. The latest reviews to be restored are "Robots in Disguise" Daytonus and Side Burn as well as Prowl 2 and Side Swipe!

Toy News: New photos of "Legends" Black Convoy with Baldigus

Thanks to the @TF_Pr Twitter feed fans now have a new image of LG-EX Black Convoy to check out! This time out, Takara has paired Black Convoy with the Unite Warriors Baldigus for a "Car Robots" reunion! In one shot, Baldigus holds Black Convoy in vehicle mode in a shot inspired by an actual episode (see attached meme for reference). The result is a bit silly and nostalgic all at the same time.
