Courtesy of Twitter user NikorasuD, we have some new in-hand images of Takara Tomy Transformers Legends LG-EX e-Hobby exclusive Magna Convoy (the latest reuse of the Classics Optimus Prime mold), with its chromed parts, sword and gun pack.

Thanks to Twitter user burningheartsam, we have a look at the comic that came packaged with the figure, with its English translation of the brief dialogue, and cross-use of accessories in the line. And via オンスローター a rendition, using Hardhead and Getaway's Titan Master, of the possibly teased Bludgeon figure people are expecting to surface next. Check it all out below!

And is it me, or Bludgeon getting a lot of love lately. TFCC, RiD2015, and now this!


Was their a Soundwave besides the current leader one which I believe Takara already has?


Yup, a Beast Wars Soundwave one. A Mutant with a bat and alligator mode (and GPS, sigh), he's depicted as Mindwipe with the Nightbeat head.

That Bludgeon is also using T30 Windblade's Scabbard (and presumably her sword). Apparently the Scabbard actually attached to Hardhead very well.

Looks more like the Rid sword.

Of course it does, that's why Takara gets ALL the money, they plan this stuff all out.

The combined form in the comic is Super Magna Convoy.

That does look to be the Generations Sword, which has some (5mm?) rectangular clips/pegs on either side (visible in the panel) that HasTak seems to use a bit for transformation. I think I do remember Hardhead having some. Will check when I get the chance, unless someone beats me to it.

It's the Rid Windblade Sword since it has the 5mm peg on the sheath and it's a "thicker" sheath.

You're right, the peg is in a different place on the Generations one. Also, scrolling back, I see someone beat me to it before I even started.

That combination is so dumb and doesn't work at all.

Love it :D

I may have taken this concept a little too far....
(excuse the un-transformed fist, pretty sure my sanity has been striped away at this point)

Anywhoooo.....Sadly exclusives and special releases are too rich for my blood. Magna Convoy does look really nice, and the Bludgeon-should it happen-is such a great idea. Too many things! Too many thiiiinnnngs :-(

I have one ordered - I'll likely use it a bit with my Dia-commander trailer and give the clawshield to Convoybat - the sword I'll use to give Alpha Trion some vehicle mode balance when he's in Carrier mode (sometimes).

Transformers Go! Hunter Ratchet? What's he doing there and why is he wearing a Cybertron Alliance cape? TFWiki doesn't have any info I could find on him, they stuck him in Prime Ratchet's section even though this version is a Decepticon. Or was he a zombie? I can't remember... Ah, found his figure bio on TFU. He was captured by the Decepticons, injected with dark energon and made evil. I'm guessing they've repurposed the figure for someone else? The red cape would indicate that in this universe he's the Decepticon supreme commander, right?

Bludgeon appears to be based in part on Hasbro's RID2001 Bludgeon, the white stripes on the shoulders and green canon give it away.

Yeah, I want that as a figure.

And I see now that I need to get a MP Delta Magnus.

Anyway, my experiment ordering Magna Convoy directly from e-Hobby appears to have been a great success. If he ships today he should be here by the end of next week. Grand total came to about $72 for the figure and $22 for shipping via Air (could have shipped SAL for $5 less) and proxy fee (Tenso.com) for a grand total of $94 (could have been $89 with SAL). Better and faster than the $110 from TFSource and BBTS.

I'm thinking of writing a guide, but I'll hold off until it actually arrives. I'm experimenting with Takara Tomy Mall as well, put myself in for their TTS Black Convoy (Scourge) purchase lottery, we'll see what happens. *fingers crossed*

Green Ratchet's look inspired the character of G1 Oilslick so it might be him.
