Default Revoltech Convoy?

Remember these?

Shown in Figure Oh! magazine *gasp* 19 months ago.

Looks like at least the Optimus Prime one might finally have a release date...

"Revoltech" is an action figure line by Kaiyodo that's now going to expand onto the TF license, starting with Convoy.

BBTS already has a preorder up...

Note that it's NOT confirmed yet that Revoltech Convoy will indeed be the figure from the old magazine article!

I wouldn't mind that Megatron, if they ever brought it to production. Unless it's another figure that's grossly too small.

Huh. Looks like the rumors were true after all.

not completely, look at the waist & kneejoints, they are different, most probably to make the toy better

Yup, I notice minor changes, but it definitely started out based on the one from those magazine scans. It's not an entirely new sculpt with no relation to the old one.

Default I 've Heard About These!

I saw pictures of the pictured Optimus and Megatron a week or two ago from this site where you can order toys. (They had them under the 'pre-order' banner). The model's themselves are pretty gorgeous, die-cast? And obviously not transformable...

Default Maybe...

Maybe it was just the Optimus Prime I saw... don't really recall a Megatron one otherwise I probably would've wet my pants. Any details as to the size? Because I ordered my Hybrid Style Convoy based on how gorgeous that Optimus Prime looked, and was utterly shocked at the cost once I noticed how small he was when I got him.

The idea is that it's uber-poseable, right?
It looks really awesome, I gotta say.
