Toy News: Official photos of "Encore" God Fire Convoy
In a surprise bit of news this past weekend, it was revealed by many outlets that Takara Tomy would be reissuing God Fire Convoy as part of their "Encore" collection. God Fire Convoy is the combination of Fire Convoy and God Magnus (aka "Robots in Disguise" Optimus Prime and Ultra Magnus). Also included is the giant sword originally released in a two pack in Japan back in 2000. This "Super God Sword" is a modification of the weapon originally included with the Japanese versions of Fortress Maximus, making it a tempting accessory for fans. It appears this release has some color changes giving the figures a more "Anime" style appearance. For instance, Fire Convoy's chest no longer has vac metal on it, but is instead just painted.
The photos in this post are from the Amazon Japan listing which does not have a price in Yen, but it does have a release date of March 11, 2018.
God Fire Convoy is available for pre-order on Bigbadtoystore.
