Takara Tomy Mall Exclusive recolor LG-EX Big Blue Convoy is now available for pre-order at TFsource pre-order yours today from the following link. http://bit.ly/TFsource_LG-EX_Blue-Big-Convoy
The color scheme is inspired by, but not identical to Big Convoy's "Lucky Draw" figure released in 1999.
I know there are some who mostly look forward - with anxious anticipation of WFC/Siege and whatever is coming next. That’s cool, but for me, right now, I am still very much excited about and for Power of the Primes. I love this line and truth be told, wish it were running longer. I would, for example, love to see the (G1) Predacons have their day, to tell their tales in modern comics... Alas, it’s all coming to an end, very soon. For now, all we can do is savor these toys and incredible comics fiction while it lasts through what’s left of 2018!
Let’s now take a close look at the last two team members of the Titan scale box set of Predacons, starting with Divebomb, Predaking’s right arm component.
Now, if you thought Headstrong’s backpack was something, wait ‘til you check out this beauty! Remarkably, he’s still quite posable, and manages to stand up, despite its back-heavy girth & weight. The wings are a little bigger than ideal for the individual robot mode, and look a little small for the combined Predaking mode. (Unfortunately, designers haven’t come up with an effective mass shifting yet!) All that said, the condor and robot modes looks great, and very good and appropriately complex transformation to Predaking form, which is just plain FUN! In this fan’s opinion, It’s complex, sturdy and playable - without being overly complicated.
It’s design esthetic certainly satiates the G1-purist in me, (Voyager-Leader in scale), without being slavishly adherent to either the original toy or cartoon model. Designers took creative liberties with this one and they paid off, certainly making this the ultimate toy version of this character.
New photos have been added to the gallery viewable in the Predaking Character page in the 2018 Transformers Section of unicron.com

OK, we don’t spend a lot of time with NONofficial transforming toys. But this crazy thing is just too funny. Came across it on Chinese social media site Weibo. We don’t know anything about it besides the very loosely translated Chinese below:
“Hello everyone, please take a look at the first time, our first variant of the tide play "Stained General" hand officially announced today [坏笑]!

If you missed out on Hasbro Toy Shop & Toys R Us exclusive Grotusque and haven't picked up Amazon exclusive Repugnus yet, than you should definitely check out Takara Tomy's upcoming release of Legends LG-EX Grotusque & Repugnus Exclusive Two-Pack arriving in January!

After the brand unification between Hasbro and TakaraTomy kicked off with Power of the Primes and Studio Series (and will continue with Siege), Takara's Transformers: Legends line continues to persist with another forthcoming TakaraTomy Mall exclusive. This time, however, it is not a recent mold release, but a soon-to-be 20-year-old mold from 1999. Seeming to coincide with the Transformers Encore reissue of the cartoon-accurately-colored Big Convoy, the next LG-EX release will be a redeco of that figure in the form of Blue Big Convoy!
Much like the Encore release of Unicron (Micron Shūgō-tai Color), this is a recreation of what was once a super rare Lucky Draw figure from 1999. However, also like Unicron (Micron Shūgō-tai Color), it is not a straight recreation, as this version will have less translucent plastic with two opaque arms instead of one solid and one clear.
More recently, the old Lucky Draw figure was actually repurposed in comics made for e-HOBBY's Magna Convoy exclusive as the leader of a legendary group known as the Primus Vanguard. While it remains to be seen whether this Legends release of Blue Big Convoy will fictionally represent Big Convoy himself in a new form, the Primus Vanguard leader remains another distinct possibility for this toy's character identity.
Legends LG-EX Blue Big Convoy will be released by TakaraTomy Mall in February 2019. ...

If you’re thinking about an upgrade to aftermarket stickers to your Power of the Primes toys, thought we would pass along the tip that duck tape works really well to quickly and easily remove the gummy residue often left behind when you take off the factory applied stickers.
