Sweet nearly identical to the original box was worried about that but not anymore.

That price point, it really hurts. And I really want to get this. Just not at that price.

This is great for anyone that doesn't have these figures already. But, if you have the original, that price is a real deal breaker, sword or not.

I have the original releases of them, so I don't really need this, but I will be honest, I was never able to figure out the instructions for combining them.

I was lucky enough to stumble upon Car Robots at an import shop a good year before they were released domestically, and I still have a lot of the OG Takara packaging. It's super cool that they stuck with the original package design for this release. Really gives it a nice throwback feel.

While I agree, isn't that just what the Encore line does anyway?

Good to know they are staying true to the line. I hope that means they have other plans for it.

I would love to own this (That non-chrome chest on Prime is great IMO, and I'd love to have the sword) but that price...It'd be cheaper to go buy the originals.

Bought the original Super Fire Convoy and God Magnus from an importer back around 1999 or 2000; and if I recall correctly paid about $50 for each or for you math majors $100 total, which accounting for inflation over the past 18 years would put the value of a dollar at $1.50 today. $100 extra for a sword seems a little steep.

I wonder what happened to those March delays we were hearing about? A lot of people got notices about March Transformers delays (I did not), and yet it seems like everything is shipping on time. Not worried about, I'm looking forward to this coming next week.

If encore is still going I would rather the older harder to get G1 japanese figure such as Overlord, Grandus, Dia Atlas, and Metrotitan.

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
A number of Hong Kong based Transformers fans, meeting up in the Hobbymizer discussion group on Facebook, have been sharing in-package and in-bubble images of the latest Encore release from Takara Tomy Transformers, showing off one of arguably the best engineered combining toys of the franchise, hailing back from the 2000s: God Fire Convoy / Omega Prime!

You can check out the mirrored images below, showing the separate God Magnus and Fire Convoy figures in their packaging and compare it all to the first release of the figure in the Seibertron.com galleries right here!

These are not the Encore toy. These are the old (and yellowed) Hasbro versions with a 3rd party sword.

Is it just me or does it look like they've included the hilt for the Matrix Sword to be held by Brave Max as well?

That sword they show in the pictures looks a lot like the perfect effect matrix sword

I know the original sword was a partial remold of the G1 Jap Fort/Grand Max sword with a different hilt. It looks like the hilt designed for the Fort/Grand/brave Max (G1) is included with this set so I wonder if the hilt is able to be swapped now to use the sword on both figures.

Makes me wonder if it's possible they're planning a Brave Maximus reissue. :-?

The original God Fire Convoy 2-pack that came with the Super God Sword originally included both the new hilt for God Fire Convoy and the original Fort Max hilt, so this could just be following in suit with that original release's inclusion of both hilts.

Only the out-of-package pics are of the old Hasbro version. The rest of the in-package pics are of the Encore.

High Quality In Hand Images of Takara Tomy Transformers Encore God Fire Convoy (RID Omega Prime)

Postby william-james88 » Fri Mar 30, 2018 8:37 pm

Alfes2010 has updated their twitter with images of the Encore God Fore Convoy set.

As you can see from these imags, the colours are different. The colours are bold and the chrome has been removed.
The recordings featured in this toy is all new. These are from the original voice cast, Satoshi Hashimoto (Fire Convoy) and Takashi Matsuyama (God Magnus). There are far more sounds in this release than the previous one, over 40. New battle sounds will be activated as the robot is combined. For more info on the sound clips, you can click here.

Alfes states that, as with the original, the upper body heavy, especially with the battery inserted. Regarding, the Super God Sword, Alfes states the handle part becomes is made of harder material, and the disassembly & assembly is very easy to do. It being such a huge sword is really helpful for poses (so they say).
