Alfes2010 has updated their twitter with images of the Encore God Fire 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).

Hopefully I'll have mine next week. First I need to fix my PayPal account after my bank told them my account was closed. :roll: Probably I'll just add my debit card in the meantime.

God Magnus never had :BOT: on the sides, nor did Fire Convoy: they were added for the RiD Optimus Prime and Ultra Magnus releases. In fact, the most common difference between Car Robot and RiD toys is just that.

Was the original Fire Convoy really that... yellow? Possible sun bleaching aside...

I'm even one of the rare people who loves chrome, so I was pretty let down to see the shiny loveliness removed for this reissue. But seeing the finished product... it looks damn good. It's more uniform, polished even. And Prime and Magnus have strikingly yellow eyes, so handsome. I'm pretty psyched for this now.

It wasn't that badly yellowed, but it was admittedly a light creamish white.

Even if the original is off-white, this is a definite improvement. All around.

I've heard about mass reports from Japanese fans of misassembly, warped parts and general QC nightmares. That's kinda dampened my happiness for this. I still kinda want it, but not for the obscene price they're going for.

A lot of fans have been excited about the latest encore reissue from Takara Tomy Transformers, of the combining and parts forming two-figure set from Car Robots / Robots in Disguise - God Fire Convoy, or Omega Prime to Anglophone audiences.

However, there seem to be more issues than previously thought with the release of the Fire Convoy and God Magnus brothers, according to a number of reports and seemingly confirmed by a post on the Taiwanese Facebook group TFCN - though the news seems to clash with the actual release of the figure, that has already happened - the figure will be recalled due to quality issues and general not very goodness.

While we wait from an official communication of sorts, let us know what you think of this news. Do you have the figure in hand? Can you confirm the reports? Is your figure also not up to standard for a new toy?

It's a little late, but the most important news today should be this.

This is a message from the last month, the encore series, the encore series, the series of after fire command, which will be cancelled because of the quality of product quality.

Yikes, for an expensive collectors' oriented reissue to have quality issues, I wouldn't think that would be worth my money at all... [-( :TAKARATOMY:

Oh dear. I sincerely hope they're gonna fix the problems and release it again (hopefully for a lower price). That sounds really, really bad.

to my knowledge there were no QC issues with :TAKARATOMY: release of Dinosaurer. Though some suspect that because they released it after Hasbro, it allowed time to make the fixes. Unfortunately I don't think Hasbro has the resources or seems to care about QC as much.

This is interesting though...as we see the product variance between :TAKARATOMY: and :HASBRO: diminish and become more unified, it's nice to see that :TAKARATOMY: still will not let something pass that :HASBRO: likely would not even give a second thought too. Unfortunately however, with operations moving to India, I expect things only to get worse, not better. It's sad that greed and the desire solely to make money may drive this line to at some point be indistinguishable from KO toys made and sold for a fraction of the price.

This was probably my most anticipated figure(s) of the year. I've got three of the original RID Primes and a Magnus, the Sam's Club Prime and Magnus, the Both pairs of Spy Changers Prime and Magnus, and Titanium Prime (and "Hot Zone"). So I've been looking forward to adding this guy to my collection. He's in the mail, already running late despite EMS shipping, and I'm looking forward to having him in hand, but this is a little discouraging.

I did just read on TFWiki that the issue is with the ankles not allowing his truck mode to tab properly, if that's all it is I can probably live with it.

Just to clarify, the original molds have intrinsic issues that may not have been fixed in the reissue. Issues that come from the way the combination works, and how Prime handles the added weight.

i.e Prime's waist ratchet is simply too weak to hold up the waist for the combined mode, and it tends to collapse backwards if not correctly setup.

Also the ratchets in Prime's hips were not the strongest and had a tendency to buckle under the wait of the combined mode causing the combined mode to do the splits.

Basically, the combined mode was quite unstable always.

Unless there's some really bad degradation of the molds, I'm willing to bet this is just the standard issues the combined mode had and went unchecked.

Last I checked the issues were mainly on Fire Convoy having parts warped and his hips so restrictive that the cab transformation is virtually impossible.
