The accessory is very cool, and I kinda want one for my Siege weaponry.

But what I really want is for people to make one out of Weaponizers! Come on people, make this happen! :twisted:

The product is not finished, as written in the japanese text, so they probably just used a toy they had to modify and show for display.

According to a mutual on Twitter who was able to read the Japanese and the information:

it's in 参考出品 state, meaning nothing is confirmed. It's more of an idea pitch than a preview really... There's a good chance that this might never even get released unfortunately. Hope they decide to release it though!

So it occurred to me that the tubes connect to the little gattling guns on the waist piece... so it's "not new" after scrutinizing it. Now... I could see them possibly testing the idea for an MP release, and just happen to be using the original mold to not "tip their hand"?

I wish it was a tease for an MP. But the funny thing is, the new MP Lio convoy and MP Primal are perfectly in scale with the original Big Convoy, so I'm not sure if we will get an MP of him, especially since he did just get his encore

Yeah and besides that, what is there to improve upon the original when it is already a pretty dynamic mold as is?

Official Images of Matrix Buster Big Convoy Reissue

Postby william-james88 » Mon Sep 02, 2019 7:29 am

While we saw what was thought to be a prototype at Tokyo Wonderfest, Takara Tomy Mall now has a preorder for the Matrix Buster edition Big Convoy reissue. and it is unchanged from what we saw on the show floor with it being a reissue of the original toy with his giant gun. This humongous weapon is a very new accessory and is called the Matrix Buster. This weapon was famously used in the final battle of the cartoon. He also comes with a small Navi figure.

In Japan, this release will only be available through the Takara Tomy Mall site for 9,720 Yen (around he $90 USD price point) since it is their exclusive. It will surely be available outside of Japan for international customers and we will update you when that happens but at least now you know what you'd be paying for it. It is to be released at the end of February.

His Energon Matrix has also been retooled to fold up, according to the text.

Do the front beast feet pull out like that on the original?

Nope. That's another retooling.

Ah, so I won't be buying the exact same mold yet again just to get these new accessories. I can live with that.

Think Takara's trying to get the total number of Big Convoy reissues up to Lio Convoy's number of repaints before he gets a Masterpiece toy too?

Dunno about Big Convoy getting a MP, as the Encore and this other reissue were both done to celebrate 20th anniversary of Beast Wars Neo, while Lio Convoy's MP is part of the whole brand's 35th anniversary.

Plus, the original Big Convoy mold is already perfectly in scale with both the Optimus Primal and Lio Convoy MP molds. ;)

Noticed that this guy is up for preorder on TFSource, so I made sure to order one. I love that Big Convoy mold, so he’s kind of a must have for me.
