Mystery Transformer, courtesy of E-Bay...

Weapon: Double-Barreled Assault Missile Launcher
Ok, I found this auction listing a Transmetal Big Convoy on E-Bay:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=300188129695&ssPageName=ADME:B:SS:US:1123

Now there is no way that is Big Convoy. Anyone know what TF (if it is one at all) that actually is?

Weapon: Indepentently Targetable Particle Beam Cannons
That's certainly not a Transformer, let alone Big Convoy.
Big Convoy was only released as such in Japan, never over here in the west.

There was never a Transmetal version of him there either AFAIK, the only known repaint/retool to be released in the US is Universe Nemesis Primal.


That thing: I can't even say whether it Transforms or not. I looks like it might.

I think asking the seller for a picture in robot mode, would be a good thing. Also whether its a custom or what? as it looks like it might be.

Either that, or something from an entirely different brand/line/company.

It's called Dino-Mammoth i think. It's from an old cartoon on Foxkids I think It was called Dinosaurs. It's like transformers but with All Dinos. I had this one. He's not a bad toy.

Yeah it was either Dinosaurs or Dino-Zone. It was a show that was competing with Beast Wars.

They actualy had some pretty intresting suff, but sadly, they have gone the way of Wheeled Warriors, Rock Lords, and Captain Power, and Voltron In The Third Dimension...

With the exception of course that these will probably not be remembered.

The seller has this listed way wrong.
