Two of the first non G1 Transformers I bought when I got back into collecting.

Still great toys.

I always wanted them repainted as Scourge and Motormaster with their combined form Nemesis Prime.

I always felt that the only flaw in this Prime was his feet being a bit small in robot mode. I remember buying Fire Convoy years ago at a local shop that sold collectibles which is gone today. :(

It's a great figure IMO which I even got the Sams Club release and I removed the screw holding the ladder making it much more enjoyable in Battle mode and paired up with AM Firebolt.

So I read that the tires issue is most common with the Hasbro figures...? :-? :VEHI:

Same here. I need to pull them out and have a play with them again. They're just so good!

I wonder if this is the final product or hand painted prototypes because it doesn't look like there's a lot of bare plastic on these. If they're giving these the masterpiece treatment and giving them a nice consistent coat of paint they're going to look amazing!

If these are indeed indicative of the final figures then the biggest change is the lack of red and blue chrome on Fire Convoy and God Magnus respectively. If that's the case then I'm definitely sold on these.

I bought the Japanese Versions back when Hasbro wasn't saying they were bringing the toys over here, and I have never been able to figure out how to combine them with the instructions.

Translucent Super God Sword!!!!! :KREMZEEK: :KREMZEEK: :KREMZEEK: :KREMZEEK:

It doesn't look like there's as much chrome on these as before, as God Magnus's front bumper, Fire Convoy's standard robot chest and eyes, and Super Fire Convoy's eyes don't look to be that shiny in these (admittedly rather dulled) images.

It seems all the chrome short of the Autobot symbols, rims, and antenna is no longer chrome (I would say this is a good change).

Fire Convoy has C-001 on his front bumper (I'm guessing God Magnus might have his Car Robots designation too, it's just too hard to see in these photos).

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.

For those who were looking for it to pair with your Brave Maximus, it's not going to match as nicely.

Sword included to help with combined mode stability/pose-ability?

More like "sword included because it should be included".

I transformed my original just a few months ago when cleaning my Transformers, and it really was a great toy. The pair of figures were some of the very few (out of 900 or so) that I transformed, without instructions, no less. While the first Transformers in my collection were from '84, I started collecting as an adult as the RID series started. This pair/combiner was definitely a favorite, although I still like Sideburns a great deal, too... especially the blue version. I wonder what the interest in the reissue will be like? That's a pretty steep price tag. I can't imagine the orginals are anywhere near that price.

That's a little more palatable, even though it will a giant box that can't go through SAL.

Thus far, the main differences in this set from the originals appear to be some mild paint differences (on both the toys and the sword), less chrome, and possibly brand new voice clips recorded by Satoshi Hashimoto (Fire Convoy's original voice actor).

Huh. They aren't usually the first ones to list. It's nice to finally see an overseas listing... I was waiting for confirmation this was actually "Encore".

Even better images of this set - https://www.amazon.co.jp/dp/B0765ZPG6X

Including some new pics, as there are 14 in all.

Just curious what were you expecting it to be?

They do look off without all the Chrome, especially Prime, but for those who have not experienced these molds, its still a solid option.

No no, there are changes:
Fire Convoy:
-bright red instead of metallic flake red
-flat blue instead of metallic blue (all the blue on the original is painted so I’m assuming this one is the same)
-white instead of light cream parts
-dark gray instead of metallic gunmetal
-and in addition because of that the feet and shins (and other parts like that) are now the same color
-painted eyes instead of chrome in both modes
-waist is a flat gray (interesting cuz on the original it if the same color as the ladder and small robot ears, which are still metallic silver plastic here)
-possibly brighter orange on super mode chest?
-painted red chest with clear windows with blue paint underneath instead of red chrome chest with windows painted on top
-C-001 license plate
-only small robot’s inner calf is painted silver (on original the silver extends to the rest of the leg behind the sculpted part)

God Magnus:
-dark flat blue instead of metallic medium blue
-a lighter shade of light blue for the light blue parts (they appear less turquoise and more sky blue)
-flat white instead of metallic white
-painted blue and silver front bumper instead of chrome blue and silver
-painted eyes instead of chrome
-gold detailed head crest
-dark gray parts instead of gunmetal (matches change to new Fire Convoy)

God Fire Convoy:
-all the components color changes obv carry over
-translucent sword tip instead of opaque blue
-silver detailing instead of blue (possibly tampos instead of stickers?)
-possible “off black” instead of black on sword (could just be a trick of the lighting)
-black (off black?) sword handle/staff instead of metallic gray
And brand new voice clips recorded by Satoshi Hashimoto and Takashi Matsuyama

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.

= 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.
