Thanks to fellow Seibertronian Sabrblade, we found more stock images of Encore God Fire Convoy on Amazon Japan. These give us our first look at God Magnus' robot mode for this reissue as well as clearer images than before.

There are several changes from the original release like the addition of circles at the base of the small robot's pectorals. Powered Convoy lists more differences found when comparing to the original releases of both the robots and the sword.

Powered Convoy wrote:- It seems all the chrome short of the Autobot symbols, rims, and antenna is no longer chrome.

= Fire Convoy has C-001 on his front bumper .

- The most obvious change is the coloration of the Super God Sword. It's no longer solid blue with a blue sticker but clear gray / purple with a silver sticker. This is animation accurate.

Hope is just undiscovered disappointment.

I hoped the season finale to Twin Peaks would make sense 8-}

Man, I hope they fixed the loose hips of the God Fire Convoy combined mode. The original is notorious for falling backwards. :GHOST:

It has more to do with the God Magnus chest part's size and weight (plus the batteries!) making him really top heavy, no amount of ratchet strength can fix that.

Less chrome and anime accurate paintjobs are a couple solid steps in the right direction.if they've tweaked the joints for added stability and addressed the problem of splitting tires then this is a must-have for me. RiD Prime and Mags were the start of my collecting career, and while I still have my originals, and a second, boxed Magnus, if they fix the issues the original figures had, I can't say no.

What part of "Encore" would suggest that this was to have been a MP release?

So I was checking out the pic of magnus' vehicle mode, and you can see a tire not all the way on the rim, looks like our hopes of plastic tires may have been dashed, not gonna lie, this might kill the deal for me :(

Why ? because of the split tires of the original version ?

Yeah, I'm not paying this much money (either for this release, or for older versions) if there's even a chance something as bad as splitting tires will happen

Been thinking. This IS good.

With the import preorder price, inclusion of the God Sword, and the differences (however minor) makes this worthwhile. Hell, the Sword a line is almost worth the price of admission. I could be wrong, but wasn't the only way to get it previously the TRU clear/crystal set?

Wow! It seems this one has a more animation type color scheme, and those changes will undoubtedly make the bot modes look more cartoony, judging by the pics above, it certainly does look MORE cartoon then the originals with the metal flakes and gun metals and such.

Hmmm....not sure how I feel about that.

As I am coming to realize, some bots and lines deserve premium paints, metallic and so forth, while other series or bots should remain in a more anime and cartoony style color or color molding..

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!

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.
