Maaan, as I said: "We're all gonna..." uh, I mean, "That line is more and more turning into 'Convoy Masters'".

Okay, the names...

"Super Fire Convoy"
"Armada Convoy" (we had this one rumored before)
"Grand Convoy"
"Returns Convoy" :wtf:
"Galaxy Convoy"

Hmmm ... they need to bring out Rid Magnus then I'll be happy.

And maybe a fort maxx while their at it. Also, is it me, or are their more Autobots then Decepticons in most of the Universes? Energon, Altenators and now RM ...

So far, Robot Masters had MORE Destrons (character-wise, that is) than Cybertrons.

Aside from that - the word is that "evil characters don't sell in Japan".

"Beast Wars Returns", at a guess

Didn't someone suggest the idea of them re-tooling Fort Max into a smaller size? That would be rather kickass, despite the fact it'll never happen... But as long as the RM line keeps bringing out good high quality figures (not too sure about reverse convoy tho :/ ), I'll be happy to keep spending money on them :)

That's a no-brainer, considering the silhouette.

But the name...

That sounds about as stupid as "Drives Convoy" or "Flies Megatron".

Except that it's the abbreviated name of a series. Contextually it makes perfect sense. As would "Metals Convoy" or (if he weren't already prefaced as "Big") "Neo Convoy."

Keyboard error - the (previous) post was sended uncompleted

Some Micromasters (in the japanese series Zone and Battlestars) have a different faction, Autobot instead of Decepticon.

On topic, i Heavily doubt that they reissue a smaller Fort Max, because it can't pass the drop test IMO (they can't have more reissue of the original Max for the same reason)
See You SSooNN, if this :cool: will occour :zzz: dreamin' guy.

Since when does Takara have to worry about the drop test? They could release RiD Brave Max and the recent Robot Masters lucky draw "Cybertron Base" without any problems. :confused:

Woah. Attack of the Convoys. Too many convoys/primes imo

Needs more sub characters in the line eg Skywarp, Thundercracker, G1 Galvatron, Jetstorm, Tankor, Rattrap, Cliffjumper, Bumblebee etc

Maybe some gestalts (Devestator - I have my micromaster Devestator displayed with my Robotmasters.)

Maybe they didn't like the working title "Regrets Buying Convoy".

I didn't mean reissuing the original Fort Max toy... I meant do what they've done with Starscream, Victory Saber, G1 Convoy etc and make a new mould for the character... It worked for the Starscream RM toy and G1 convoy is another good example, so why not do it for other fanboy favourites?

Because there'd be no room for all the convoys that ever existed . . .

Cause his alt mode will be useless dude.
Really,a small Fort max is as good as no Fort max. I can't see him going basic,deluxe or even ultra or super sized and still be the same, even for the relevantly small RM line.

BTW,wasn't a Brave max sold as a TV mag exlusive in this line already? almost sure it did...

"Cybertron Base", a "robot points" lucky draw.
Was basically a repackaged Brave Max, right.

If they're going to insist on Convoys, I'd really like to see Rodimus Prime. I wouldn't mind Hot Rod, either. A few Decepticon leaders to balance the rampaging Convoys would be nice.
But, really, we need more troops. What use are the Convoys without anyone to boss around? They're Cybertrons so they can't entertain us by backstabbing each other.
It's not like they have yet to run out of molds to recolor. I'd be pleased if they recolored RM Prime as Ultra Magnus (with armor/trailer, of course) and RM Starscream as any one of a whole armada of seekers - only minor retooling would be needed to turn him into any of the coneheads.

I agree. Theres so much more that could be done with Robotmasters.

How about a smaller version of the "Master of space and time" Vector Prime from Galaxy force?
Maybe a small Armada/Micron Legends Megatron?with more articualtion this time? or maybe a smaller Cryotek/TM2 Megs?

well, im actually excited about the future lineups. but im curios to why they will be making a new g1 convoy? if im looking at that little booklet correct, isnt it the future releases? and htey have another g1 convoy coming up? im a little confused about that. but i am excited about rodimus convoy, fortress maximus, god ginrai, and returns convoy the most :)

before this i only had beast convoy, but just today i bought G1 Convoy, Lio Convoy, and Lio Convoy. but i havent gotten star saber yet. but i most likly will. because out of the robot masters line up, ill only be getting convoys, and cybertron leaders.

Quoth ssjautobot:

I don't think they're making a new G1 Convoy. The booklet looks more like a listing of the various series' principle Cybertron leaders rather than of actual future releases. Presumably, in the pages between those seen, there are also listings for Dai Atlas, Star Convoy, Primal's three TV BW forms, Leo Convoy, and Big Convoy.

They might make them. They might not. Only time will tell.

oh i see. that makes a little more sense. im really looking forward towards any future releases on convoys or cybertron leaders

sorry to double post, but i heard a rumor on another website that they are going to make super ginrai, and godbomber next. similar to how star saber and victroy leo were released
