It would explain why Big Convoy's arms were always asymetrical when the rest of his body was not.

Ya know, I think you nailed it. I never noticed just how asymmetrical his arms were before.

I didn't even notice till last Thursday, it's strange that those are the only asymmetrical parts, usually the chest is asymmetrical if anything or at least an indication that the bot has some asymmetry

There is more subtle asymetry all across this figure (including the chest), I wrote about it when I included him in my top 5 shellformers list: https://www.seibertron.com/transformers ... oys/33329/

But the arm is the most asymetrical part. Maybe a quick news piece on the revelation could be fun.

I mean, it's a nearly 20 year old toy, I'm not sure it really needs a news piece

Not about the toy, about the fact that we actually have a fictional reason for it after all these years.

Eh, for fun, why not? I wonder how many people didn't even realize Big Convoy was asymmetrical

Ok ehm... To get this back on track a bit... I know! Anybody think we could expect more Siege or Select designs to pop up in there closer to the end? We got Cog, the Micromasters and Firedrive already, who could possibly be fitted in?

Depending on which previous Legends toy characters also appear in an epilogue chapter, I could see Sixgun and Brunt appearing alongside Metroplex and Trypticon.

Then again, whoever appears might also depend on whenever an epilogue chapter might see release. The Big Powered prologue came out on the day before the second wave (SG-08 to SG-14) of Takara's Siege line came out, so if an epilogue were to come out closer to a later wave's release date, we should keep an eye out for the following Japanese wave release dates:
  • May 31, 2019 - Wave 4: SG-20 to SG-24
  • July 27, 2019 - Wave 5: SG-25 & SG-26
  • August 24, 2019 - Wave 6: SG-27 & SG-28
  • September 28, 2019 - Wave 7: SG-29 to SG-32
  • October 25, 2019 - Wave 8: SG-33 to SG-35
