15th was in 2017, 20th is coming up in 2022.

We did get CW Armada Megs and TR Tidalwave if you want to count that as Hasbro Celebrating Armada in some way.

I think Takara has better plans for this. We might yet see an Encore release of Super Convoy.

I don't see Hasbro bringing over Armada Prime outside of maybe in the SELECTS line if at all.

If anything, figures retooled from standard assortment figures like Big Powered and Star Convoy stand a better chance as they fit better in Hasbro's Size Classes ("Battlestar Optimus Prime" anyone?). TakaraTomy figures made from scratch tend to fall outside given limits, but one can hope the designers have some foresight when it comes to that.

15th was in 2017, 20th is coming up in 2022.

We did get CW Armada Megs and TR Tidalwave if you want to count that as Hasbro Celebrating Armada in some way.

I think Takara has better plans for this. We might yet see an Encore release of Super Convoy.

I don't see Hasbro bringing over Armada Prime outside of maybe in the SELECTS line if at all.

Dunno how that's supposed to make sense business-wise, I mean the interest is there, if they're concerned about it not doing well at mass retail I get that, but they clearly aren't adverse to the ol' amazon exclusive and whatnot. It's also repaint-able too, I dunno, this just seems like a wasted opportunity to me, but maybe that's why I'm not running a company :???:


Comes down to whether Hasbro thinks they can make a profit out it. As Jelze points out, if it does not fit in their size classes its harder for Hasbro to sell it to regular retail.

Amazon so far has been a good outlet for exclusives, so maybe they can carry this, if Hasbro believes there's enough interest and profit.

As to Star Convoy, it would not surprise me if Hasbro brings it over as Jelze points out. A completely new figure out of any regular scale and price bracket does not bode well however.

We have yet to see Hasbro bring over Takara's Bumblebee Movie Legendary Optimus Prime, and that one should fit nicely into a Leader class price point.

This Armada redux seems unlikely to fit in any of Hasbro's current offerings. But I hope I'm wrong.

And I think it's yet another experiment to gauge if the fans actually like having obscure characters despite them being heavily retooled from older figures. If really successful, we may see the likes of Road Caesar and Dinoking yet.

Big Powered is looking great! It's gonna be a fun April whenever he arrives at my place!

Star Convoy is an awesome reveal. Wish his chest windows were retooled, but I love that head. Here's hoping for colored pictures soon!

I just got the OG Armada Prime that can combine, so it only makes sense that we would get a new one. And he looks really good and bulky! Beautiful heads on both Primes too

Speculation is that the inner "Orion Pax" figure was remolded into a standard G1 Optimus Prime, which would explain why the chest windows remain rectangular and not stylized like on the original Star Convoy.

But those chest windows dont appear on the smaller toy, they only come into play in the evolved mode.

So..the Legends line isn't ending after all, that is good news. Star Convoy looks great, but one would think they would have used the TR Prime as a starting point, even though it's been heavily reused already. With PotP Leader Prime as the starting point, how are they going to do Star Convoy's Base mode?

As windows, yes, but the backside of those panels also forms the bottom edge of the cab behind the front wheels, and I'm guessing that is why they had to stay rectangular. Probably a case of leaving them alone and adding the angled portion to the trailer was the easiest/cheapest way to get the chest for the evolved form "right enough".

I had forgotten about the windows on top of windows thing that the mold does. #-o

Yeah, in that case, I don't know what the excuse is for not remolding those parts.

Take the Legends designation with a grain of salt: their lines have not been confirmed, and their cards are pretty generic with just the "Transformers 35th Anniversary". Legends is a safe educated guess, but they could be standalone releases like the Golden Lagoon sets. Meanwhile, the two have their own dedicated thread.

They made base modes out of the TR Jumpstarter molds, TakaraTomy finds a way. They always do. :shock:

I hope they somehow manage to make it a long-nose cab like the original, although with a G1 Convoy Toy-based robot mode, I don't know if they'd go that route.

I'm more interested to see how a "base mode" will work, since seemingly the PotP Leaders really cant make one that I am aware of. I know the toys are not the same, but anyone out there who has PotP Leader Prime, want to try making a mock up of a *base mode* ;) . If Star Convoy had been made from TR Leader Prime I'd have been more prone to purchase it , since it would no doubt have compatibility/connectivity with the other TR Leaders.

This is Takara... They made base modes from the deluxe Top Spin and Twin Twist modes....i trust them to finangle something from it.

One of the more obscure exclusives to appear on Takara Tomy Mall is out and we're getting our first in hand look! LG-EX Blue Big Convoy, piggybacking on the recent release of Encore Big Convoy, is based on an exceedingly rare Beast Wars Neo lucky draw figure and later repurposed for an e-Hobby story line involving their own Magna Convoy and Convobat. Several photos posted to the Hobbymizer Hong Kong Facebook discussion page (and a single photo from PC Kok) are showing off everything from unopened cases to the figure pared with Magna Convoy and even a preview of the pack-in comic!

Enjoy the photos and let us know what you think of the opportunity to get mass produced versions of Lucky Draw figures in the Energon Pub forums below.
