The Encore edition of Car Robots Fire Convoy and God Magnus are going to feature updated, and supposedly expanded sound chips featuring a lot of new dialogue and sound effects. To highlight this, TakaraTomy has posted three samples taken from what's going to be put on Fire Convoy's sound chip. Those who've been around long enough to have an original Fire Convoy will recognize that each of the phrases previewed here are brand new to the toy. Click through for a link to the TakaraTomy official site page, and a list of the phrases!



Site sponsor TFSource has posted images of Encore God Fire Convoy! While it's extremely similar to the original release, the new photos distinguish this release with their inclusion of a translucent plastic-bladed Matrix Blade/God Fire Sword as well as a lack of vacuum-metalized parts on Optimus Prime's normal-mode chest. Which is not $280's worth of upgrades to RAC, personally, but does indeed look better to him, and distinguishes this release from the original. Keep reading to see!



Our earlier report indicated that an Encore release of God Fire Convoy (the combined form of Fire Convoy and God Magnus from Car Robots) was solicited for March of 2018. We treated it with due skepticism, but it looks like through a post on Loopaza's Facebook page it's for real. And we have a price tag to go with it: 30,000 Yen. It's a lot of toy in that package, especially with the expectation that the electronics will be kept intact. For reference, when originally released in 2000, Fire Convoy and God Magnus each retailed for 4,980 Yen. Hopefully there will be a giant sword in that Encore packaging smooth the price over a bit!



Singapore fangroup Planet Iacon has posted to Facebook that March 2018's TakaraTomy Transformers offerings will include a surprise. In addition to the latest round of Legends Series products, TakaraTomy is also producing the first new Encore figure since 2013: God Fire Convoy! We don't know what Planet Iacon's sources are for this info, but they've been pretty good in the past. But for now, keep reading as you take these listings with a grain of salt.



TakaraTomy has posted a sample image for the package art for Unite Warriors Ruination! "Evil Destronger Combiner Combatron Baldigus," is due in late March and isn't just a recolor of Unite Warriors Bruticus to match his Robots In Disguise recolor, no. TakaraTomy is also adding a suite of combining weapons as well as US Combiner Wars Computron's hands and feet to the mix. Keep reading to see the package art!

TakaraTomy designer Hisashi Yuki has shared a couple more interesting images from Car Robots, the series that would be known as the first Robots In Disguise in the US. First up is more rough preliminary design work for Super Fire Convoy, AKA Optimus Prime. Also, a photo of a special version of Wildride/X-Brawn with clear parts that was used to highlight the detailing of the engine compartment at a toy show. Keep reading to see!


Auto Assembly has come and gone and during the show, there was a rather large showcase of the ultra rare Lucky Draw figures. One of the extremely rare ones are the Lucky Draw Black God Magnus from the Japanese series Car Robots (Robots In Disguise in the U.S.) and they have provided a rather large gallery of the figure. In this gallery, they show off the figure and copies of the magazine in which Black God Magnus was a prize. Take a look now.


I recently got the chance to photograph the Car Robots Black God Fire Convoy An exclusive in several contests during the Car Robots line he was limited to just a few hundred pieces.


Its took awhile, but Transformers fans in the USA are now getting their Brave Max toys. Thanks to Sonokong in Korea, US toy dealers are shipping them now. We just got a Brave Max and posted a gallery showing the entire box, packing and the Max figure. There's also a Sonokong catalog showing more RiD coming to Korea. See the pics and more info HERE.
