TakaraTomy Mall Transformers: Legends LG-EX Blue Big Convoy

Postby Sabrblade » Wed Sep 12, 2018 10:09 pm

After the brand unification between Hasbro and TakaraTomy kicked off with Power of the Primes and Studio Series (and will continue with Siege), Takara's Transformers: Legends line continues to persist with another forthcoming TakaraTomy Mall exclusive. This time, however, it is not a recent mold release, but a soon-to-be 20-year-old mold from 1999. Seeming to coincide with the Transformers Encore reissue of the cartoon-accurately-colored Big Convoy, the next LG-EX release will be a redeco of that figure in the form of Blue Big Convoy!

Much like the Encore release of Unicron (Micron Shūgō-tai Color), this is a recreation of what was once a super rare Lucky Draw figure from 1999. However, also like Unicron (Micron Shūgō-tai Color), it is not a straight recreation, as this version will have less translucent plastic with two opaque arms instead of one solid and one clear.

More recently, the old Lucky Draw figure was actually repurposed in comics made for e-HOBBY's Magna Convoy exclusive as the leader of a legendary group known as the Primus Vanguard. While it remains to be seen whether this Legends release of Blue Big Convoy will fictionally represent Big Convoy himself in a new form, the Primus Vanguard leader remains another distinct possibility for this toy's character identity.

Legends LG-EX Blue Big Convoy will be released by TakaraTomy Mall in February 2019.

"When there's gold feathers, punch behind you!!"

“Critics who treat 'adult' as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence. And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow. But to carry on into middle life or even into early manhood this concern about being adult is a mark of really arrested development. When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.” -- C.S. Lewis
