its nice and I like how they painted the eyes but looking at the prices I could really do with out it plus nemesis prime is more my cup of tea since I have an odd liking toward emo repaints

I really like this Clear Convoy! I just may end up getting him as I cannot get enough of this mold and I do not have a Japanese version of him yet; depending if the price is right, that is. Glad to see that Takara is really extending the Classics/Henkei line like they have done with all their other Transformer lines.

Guest Primal-Convoy

From what Ive heard from fellow fans here in Japan, some scalpers from the USA and Hong Kong devoured the lot in a matter of minutes. One western scalper, I heard, brought about 8 "cronie-cons" with him and proceeded to buy oodles to sell at a rival TF site. Personally I hardly ever bother going to these conventions unless I know I can get a dealer pass from a chum or too.

 

And to think most of my mates and I here in Japan were not even bothered about this edition...Why did it sell out so fast?

Must be nice to LIVE in Japan though, huh? I would DIE to shop in Japan with friends. Is the TF hunting good or is it tough to find stuff on days there released. Do they keep there release date on schedual?

 

anyways, i WANT this fig. Whats it like 200?

shopping in japan is awesome, but the selection is hit or miss at times. imo hk can be better since you can negotiate more. as for this ehobby crystal convoy it was not a huge success in japan compared to how crazy it is getting here in the states. scalpers are not helping the matter remotely but some are selling/offering it cheaper than retailers like bbts. so think about who is actually scalping whom. a reasonable mark up i can understand but over a 150 mark up, that is just asinine! :die :hrfinger :finger

There's just something about TF's made out of clear colored plastic :), and this figure doesn't dissapoints.

 

However, I already own CL Magnus & Henkei Convoy and the only way I see myself getting another version of this mold is if I can get the Shattered Glass version for a nice price (only one of the evil version that worh getting IMO).

 

 

But it's fun to read that this figure wasn't much of a hit in Japan, but popular in the western world.

agreed. just wish more retailers offered this so it would be more competitively priced. especially since odds are the price it is being offered at now by retailers will not hold a year from now. :(

  • 4 weeks later...

So is this a regular release or is it one of those 300% higher price exclusives?? Like is it gonna be in similar numbers as say BumbleBee or is it gonna be an ultra rare item?

    • Hey Core Dinobot and Deluxe Sureshot are still coming out. Good. G2 Breakdown and Armada Wheeljack are new though. I'm not too worried about Armada Wheeljack's listing not having Whisper included as Sureshot's listing doesn't have Spoilsport in it but will most likely be included if Pointblank is any indication. Sucks about the rest of the G2 Stunticons not having new names though. It also sucks I never found Sideswipe or Dead End too. I imagine they'll be at Ross soon enough. I do want another Cosmos just for the gun. I never found one at Ross. Not that I went to more than one store to check though lol. The whole shit with signing up for their credit card bummed me out. They wouldn't let me use it that same day like every other store does when you sign up in store. I had to wait two weeks for the card to come in. It took two days just for them to email me the temp code to use in store the same day. Like seriously? How do you not know how this shit is supposed to work but I digress. Couldn't care less about Ramjet and Tarn as I have them already.  I do want more Galaxy Shuttle though. I got the one but was a bit tight on money at the time so didn't push it to get the other two I wanted. Again, I never found one at Ross. I just really wish they came plain black and white with both heads and had two decal sheets. One to turn it into Galaxy Shuttle and the other into Takara's G1 Astrotrain. The third I wanted will be made into Spay-C. Based more on her Super Gobots toy than her standard one. Shame the robot mode is mostly white as a fourth could've been used for Loco. Not that the black paints I have don't work well on Transformers. I just haven't felt up to doing any more customs these past few years. Work takes a lot out of me mentally. Not that I dwell on it or anything, it just takes me out of things. Anyway, Overcharge is both nice to see and bad to see. I did my part of getting two Blitzwings to try and move things along. I kind of did some mods to my first one I wanted to go back on and the reissue was like $25 so why not pick up a new one right? Hopefully Overcharge will go on sale quickly. I'll pick up a few to bolster out my Quintesson army. It's quite sizable now and will only get better with some Overcharge drones. I should pick up some more Sparkless Seekers to add them to the army as well. I already have three but they're so cheap now so it wouldn't hurt too much to get some more to help clean up digital shelves.
