Thanks Shaj --the Big Convoy mold is so wonderful, it makes me still want Big Black Convoy & Ultra Mammoth! But I am absolutely loving Universe Nemesis Prime.

He's got (good) hair.
Even Elita-Infin1te agrees. ;)

The centuries of practice had paid off.

"Super Black" Convoy could now bend time-space to pull others throughout the multiverse to his exact location (albeit temporarily) -- like Summoning from Final Fantasy.
IMG_0604.JPG
L1ght our darkest hour...
Using the Autobot Enigma, he summons Elita-Pr1me. Affixed with the Autobot Matrix of Leadership in her central core, she blasts Unicron in a searing light-beam that critically weakens him.

Super Black then delivers the deathblow with the Master Sword, making short work of Armada Unicron.
IMG_0674.JPG
All too easy.

Which works out well -- Elita & Convoy haven't seen each other in centuries.

FIN~

After destroying Unicron, his essence began to scatter -- but not before Super Black absorbed this darkness, creating the Dark Matrix.

Once upon a time, Nemesis Prime was a slave to a dark god.

Now, He had become a god Himself.

Also, nice Princess Bride reference XD Nemesis Convoy riding the wolf was a nice touch! A few of those captions had me rolling! :lol:

I have a feeling this isn't the end of the story, despite the happy ending presented here. It makes me curious as to the direction you'll go with it :lol: Thank you, as always, for putting these together! They're highly entertaining :D

Also not sure how you manage some of your photography, but I love the way Elite-Pr1me looks in the first picture. It's like she's lit up, or powering up XD

Going simply by 'Convoy', our hero settles into a quiet life with Elita-Pr1me in her universe.

Nightmares of Unicron continue to haunt him, however, and the Dark Matrix isn't enough to contain the pure evil....

G1 Skullgrin, too!
Led by Liege Maximo, Convoy finally tracks down Galvatron to seek salvation.

Believing him to be a variant of his Shattered Glass incarnation, Convoy asks him about the Chaos Bringer -- but no answers are offered, and no fuses given. Galvatron recognizes Convoy, and offers him salvation -- in destruction.

Oh, he totally has, Shaj! I just love the figure so much -- and I also dig dark heroes. ;)

I got two sweet packages in the mail today: VS-36 (Mach Kick Vs Archadis!)

and KILLER PUNCH

(thanks again, buddy! I really love mandarake....)

I will be opening up KillaP tonight, but will let my girl open up the Vs pack on her birthday. She's excited for Mach Kick. ;)^

I'm not ripping through BW2 as fast as I'd like, since I started Pillars of Eternity on PS4. But I'm still watching them. Oh, and I also ripped through all 12 episodes of Death Parade -- what a great show.

Thanks Cobo! :MAXIMAL:

I've been taking so many pics lately, but hadn't thought about how I wanted it all to play out in my head-canon.....and as strong as my newfound love for the Beast era is, there will always be a special place in my heart for the original G1 characters. Especially Megatron.... :CON:

With Skullgrin's betrayal still sizzling his circuits, Convoy tracks down MP-36 Megatron to exact some semblance of revenge for Elita-1....but honestly, hunting Megatron across the multiverse has gotten addicting.

In the months leading up to the Great War, Convoy finds Megatron preparing to unleash his Phase Sixers on Cybertron.

Nice XD Full circle, I see! From adorable to badass and back again :lol:

Nice! I'm glad Killer P and the others got there safely! :D Still astonished at that find - Very, very nice! Looks like he's already made a friend, too :lol:

Loving all the movie reference. Such nostalgia. Now to wait and see if Killer P or Mach Kick will be making an appearance in future episodes :MAXIMAL:

Thanks, Wingz -- I figure when you mess with time travel, it should eventually circle back somehow! All I knew for sure was that Nemesis Prime and MP-36 had to face-off, sooner or later.

My daughter opened up Mach Kick and Archadis yesterday -- she loves the latter, but let her brother have Mach Kick.

Although the set was MISB, Mach Kick was a bit loose -- he's in pristine condition from what I can tell -- but pops off that ball-joint for his torso very easily. Like you look at him, and he wants to separate. Now imagine trying to transform him (back to horse mode) without the instructions as he's popping off all over the place, and you have a recipe for frustration!

But ultimately, satisfaction as well, when he did finally fit together properly. I will have to get pics of him in horse mode (I got plans!), but he looks absolutely great as a bot. :MAXIMAL:
IMG_0843.JPG

At least Archadis can be transformed fairly easily by My Girl (dad does not have to help lol), and she gave me his gun to hold onto. ;)

EDIT: Hun-Gurrr is cool.

Mach KICK's looseness is disappointing, for sure, but I can't help but love his look and modes -- I didn't transform him into weapon (?) mode though. :p

But yes, My Girl definitely is happy! And she's not even as diehard as me and my son. ;)

KP is very cool, Cobo -- I just had to finish the fight for him & Mr. KICK! ;)^

I already liked KP as a dino, but wow, in bot mode his bad-assery truly shines -- he's armed to the teeth! I still prefer to have the dinohead on his arm, but it looks good on his back, no doubt.

It really is impossible to have a pony and not have anybot ride it! I feel the same way about pterodactyls, wolves and giant warthogs, too. ;)

I was so tempted to impulse-buy MP32 Friday night...but just before pulling the trigger, I did a quick search on MP32 vs MP38, read Cobo's review of MP38, and visited the MP32 topic.
IMG_0964.JPG
A banana for your thoughts...
And even though I can find MP38 cheaper, I'm sucha whore when it comes to cartoon accuracy. >_<
IMG_0968.JPG
Well, that's just PERFECT
When I think of toys vs cartoon design, the prime example for me is always G1 Optimus Prime. I loved him till both his arms fell off (then he became Dead Optimus!), but man, he looked a lot more bad ass in the cartoon we watched.

I would've waited an eternity to have a perfect incarnation of him from The Movie -- and I think we finally did (many times over lol).
IMG_0987.JPG
I'll rip out your optics!
Same thing with MP36 -- I've had numerous versions of Megatron, but my first MP for him was not until the very latest got reissued.
IMG_0989.JPG
IMG_0997.JPG
And he was certainly worth the wait; especially for those who wanted a faithful adaptation of Megatron from The Movie.
IMG_0980.JPG
Don't leave me...
It was different with Soundwave -- I wanted the yellow optics because of the original G1 toy.

But back to Beast Wars, it was Garry Chalk that made Primal a unique and cool Not-Prime-But-Primal. I eventually came around to the fact he wasn't the same character as my G1 Prime, and had a visible mouth. :o

By the end of season 1, I grew to love the look. Unfortunately, BW Megatron outwitted Primal....


I could never really get into his second body, despite the cyber surfboard, and scored Optimal on the cheap.

With my order for MP32 now pending, I plan to skip his upcoming PotP figure. Especially since I prefer the original Transmetal Optimal Optimus figure (name-tag & all!).

The looks just come down to personal preference, of course. ;)

Motto: "A man who wants nothing is invincible."
I hear you about Primal's Transmetal form. I initially was like :SICK: ....but he grew on me. I think for a couple reasons.

I got into Beast Wars kind of late, and largely missed out on the Wave 1'ers because of that. And that meant a big chunk of the cast. I remember clear as day, seeing the toys in the store LOOONG before I ever saw the show and I was positively baffled when I read Beast Wars "TRANSFORMERS". I thought it was some sort of mistake, a knock-off, or something, and immediately dismissed them. Fast forward to me realizing they were not only legit, but awesome and coupled with an amazing show, and now it was too late for me to get many of the Season 1 characters. Namely, Primal and Megatron.

So. Season 2 comes along, and I snatch up Primal and Megatron as fast as I can, marking the first toy incarnations of the characters I'm able to get. I think that's one of the reasons I have such a soft spot for him. Not to mention it is a really goofy and fun toy. The other reason I think is he was given time to age. When airing in Canada, I could be wrong, but it at least felt like it was a year in between seasons. I watched it as it aired, one episode at a time, then had to wait forever for season 3 and his third body. So I think I had more time to get used to him. Whereas you watched season 2 in what? A day? A week? I can understand why you're not a fan of that form :lol:

Now I totally wanna play with Primal V2, Shaj! I can imagine if I had watched the show live (as opposed to my binge!), everything would have had time to soak in more...marinate, and age into characters I could enjoy over several years, instead of weeks.

The characters have endured, and I'm glad I was able to enjoy them all -- I already wanna watch through both Beast series again, but I'm in the middle of the Japanese BW-series. ;)

So which Beast Megatron figure was your favorite? If there does end up being an MP BW Megatron, it's gonna make me feel DEM WANTS.

I do feel it for Dinobot -- it really is just the price tag. MP36 was expensive as hell....but it was Megatron! And I've known him for decades. :CON:

EDIT!
It all started while I was casually hunting Universe Optimus Primal...

....but there's just no favorable comparison when he's pitted against MP32.

Scorponok died in the year 2005.

Left for dead by Megatron ages ago, his sparkless corpse reanimated when the power of the Dead Matrix had been released.

Once a mindless spark-eating slave to Unicron, Dark Scorponok was granted freedom after the Dark God's dismemberment by 'Super Black' Convoy.

His mind and body were restored by absorbing some of Unicron's dying essence, and he was reborn.
