I would go that far (saying Galaxy Force Convoy is inspired by Star Convoy), but that's just me.

Nor is the original from G1. I've been watching them on eBay for a while. The prices of the original keep dropping like a rock. I can't imagine that that has anything to do with a reissue which is actually superior to the original (thank you again Takara).
It's a good time to be a TF fan, isn't it?
Awesome sig, by the way.
1. I purchase toys because when I get up in the morning and roll off the giant pile of money that I sleep on, I need something else to do besides making sweet sweet love to the beautiful woman at my side.
You're a jerk, CP.

I actually prefer truck mode the most. I love the epic space-rig thing it's got going on.
I currently having him facing off against Reissue Purple Galvatron, even if that doesn't make sense fiction-wise.

I'm just bummed we haven't seen Grandus and Sky Garry get re-released as well.
I also think mine was worth the $80 I paid for it, and if I'd waited this long I wouldn't have been able to enjoy him this long or have the certainty that I'd ever be able to add him to my collection. I suppose even if I complain about prices from time to time, I'm happy to preorder a hard to get item and KNOW I'm going to have it, versus watching and waiting for auctions or sales and whatnot, because you'll never know what's going to happen. That's why I'm still happy I got my City Commander too, even if it's getting re-released with improvements.

Victory Leo is too cool for school. Collectors should be able to get one without playing $300. It doesn't dimininsh my collection any.
Man, what I wouldn't do to have Victory Leo & Star Saber! Actually, there's a lot I wouldn't do, but I want them really bad. Just not $300 a pop bad, so I'm hoping as much as most that they'd get reissues somehow.
