TFND's Facebook page as well as the Dengeki Hobby website have new info on what is new with the Encore release of God Fire Convoy.

We could tell from the images that the deco would be more show accurate but now we have info on the electronics too. There are new recordings 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, with TFND stating over 40. New battle sounds will be activated as the robot is combined.

It will also come with a collector card.

New sounds I expect to hear:

Fire Convoy:
Fire engine sirens
"Fire Convoy, Transform!"
"Cybertron senshi, Transform!"
"Water Storm!" (or "Water Storm, fire!")
"Fire Flash!"
"Convoy Gun!"
"Fire Knuckle!"
"Trans Mine!"
"Kyodai Gattai! Super Fire Convoy!"
"Blizzard Storm!" (or "Blizzard Storm, fire!")
"Pulsar Cannon!"
"Enjin Tobihizageri!"
"Hakai Rocket-dan!"
Maybe parts of the theme song Honō no Overdrive ~Car Robot Cybertron~

God Magnus:
"God Magnus, Transform!"
"Magna Vulcan!"
"Magna Laser!"
"Hand Mine!"
"God Burst!"

God Fire Convoy:
"Chō Kyodai Gattai! God Fire Convoy!"
"God Laser!"
"God Vulcan!"
"God Fire!"
"Super God Sword!"


Among others.

Saw a few of you commenting about how Takara Car Robots Fire Convoy and God Magnus didn't have the tire splitting problem. They did! Some of my Fire Convoy's tires split and I replaced them with the identical looking tires from Hasbro's RID Optimus Prime. Just an FYI!

Was wondering about that. Thanks for the clarification. ;)^

Yeah, rubber tires sound good on paper because they carry nostalgia like die-cast metal (and offered protection from Shrapnel's lightning), but collectors and manufacturers should wake up and realize they suck for longevity, like we did about the gold plastic.

Someone around here mentioned that occasionally taking the tires off and soaking them in armor-all is a good solution, but I really hope this reissue inspires someone on Shapeways to make 2-piece snap-together plastic replicas to replace the real deal when they inevitably do the splits.

Regardless, I'll probably buy this reissue, due to the condition my RID leaders are in.

Man, I love the looks of this set so much! If they wanted to go back and redo the entire line like this I'm all for it, I'd totally buy them all over again. God Fire Convoy really held up well after all these years, better than, say, many of the Unicron Trilogy figures did.

I ended up going with AmiAmi because I feel like even with the shipping it'll still come in lower than the $280 of domestic sellers and probably show up sooner.

Samples of three new sound clips recorded for Fire Convoy by Satoshi Hashimoto - http://tf.takaratomy.co.jp/products/tf_encore/gfc_sound

"Fire Convoy, Transform!"

"Daijōbu. Atsui kokoro ni fukanō wa nai!"
("It's okay. Nothing is impossible for a burning heart!")

"Arm Ladder! Set On! Fire Knuckle!" (+ sound effects)

Takara has posted three newly recorded sound clips for their Encore release of God Fire Convoy. You can listen to them on their website. Seibertronian Sabrblade made a breakdown of what you can hear.

I didn't really know who Satoshi Hashimoto was at first, but after years of hearing Terry Bogard shout "Burn Knuckle!" in tons of fighting games and then hearing the Fire Knuckle clip I knew exactly who Hashimoto was.

I'm actually surprised that the toy is using the full "Arm Ladder! Set On!" version of "Fire Knuckle!" since it was only ever spoken once in just the first episode.

Reminds me of Optimus' Energon Axe.

It was only ever used in the first episode of the G1 series and yet became quite iconic and important to include as a reference.

Ah, you misunderstood me. Fire Convoy used "Fire Knuckle" multiple times throughout the show, but only in the first episode did he ever say the full attack command of "Arm Ladder! Set On! Fire Knuckle!" All other times after that use in the first episode had him simply yell "Fire Knuckle!" without the first two parts.

Though, there was one time in episode 5 where he instead yelled "Honō no Punch: Fire Knuckle!" when using a different "punching" version of the attack, and another instance in episode 18 where he used the normal version but strangely called the attack "Barter Knuckle!" instead.

In the burning heart
Just about to burst
There's a quest for answers
An unquenchable thirst
In the darkest night
Rising like a spire
In the burning heart
The unmistakable fire

It's not a mouth. It's a guard-layered mouthplate.
