Liveconvoy

RM Reverse Convoy, a remold

it is both Megatron and Convoy, why not both Ratchet and Megatron

Does that mean there will be two of the Reverse Convoys figures? One with Megs head, and the other one Prime.

Oh yeah and Liveconvoy looks awesome. Much better than Bulkhead.

it seems like this Reverse Convoy can switch heads (seems the most logical, especially with his name being 'Reverse')

Well, seeing as how the little bio for Reverse Convoy hints that he's not really Convoy, and he has a Megatron head and G1 Megatron was a shadowy silloutte in the Robot Masters, how would you put it?, heredity tree? (That's not really good, but some Robotmasters pamphlet or another had a tree showing connections between characters.) I'm gonna take a wild guess here and say that's really G1 Megatron.

I'm thinking it'd look good next to RM Convoy... especially if it turns out to be green or silver...

I do hope they aren't doing two figures on a "lucky draw" system or similar.

It says 'remold', though. Is it the G2 Hero Megs?

Most likely. The other version of G2 tank Megatron would be too big for a Robotmaster. Looks like they remolded the cannon so that it doen't need the air bellows gimmick. I wonder if they thought to add the clips needed to keep his chest attached to his waist? The annoying lack of those clips was the only real drawback to the original toy.

Neither is there either of the Laser Cycle recolors or the other two Cyberjets. The tree was made up quite some time ago which means they've been planning Reverse Convoy for a while now.

Well, given their track record for the principal characters of the line, could it be a new mold entirely?

Hmmm I kinda like the Reverse Convoy. Maybe I don't have to buy a Armada Megatron off ebay now.

Maybe this isn't the right place for this but...could someone explain this tree to me? (I can't speak/read Japanese) What is the premise behind Robot Masters? Is it Transformers? What's the story? What's with this tree?

The battle between heroic Cybertrons and evil Destrons continues...but something about the battle is different this time. A Megatron who took the form of a dinosaur has arrived by making a trans-dimensional journey from the Beast Wars universe! The Cybertrons find themselves faced with a crisis, when Beast Convoy appears before them. Then even more warriors gather from across many dimensions...! A new era in robot battles now begins here! You too can be part of the war of the Robot Masters!!*

Robotmasters is a line that takes an old Takara formula and resuses it, with varying degrees of success. The formula is simple. Take a couple brand new molds, toss in a pile of redecos and call it a line.

Except the new moulds are generally pretty good this time.

Autovolt and Reverse Convoy I could take or leave; however, Liveconvoy looks very, very nice and I like the way that vehicle mode looks.

Liveconvoy looks very cool...but unless that's some sort of funky forced perspecitve in that one picture...it looks really small, too. Hopefully not, though...because the larger robot picture looks to be too detailed for something that fits in one's hand.

Isn't this kind of the same idea behind TF: Universe?

Thanks for the info, by the way.

Ah...makes a bit more sense. Not really feeling the Reverse Convoy though I may get it just to add to the collection.
