When Generation One was nearing its end, Japan released a set of Cybertrons (aka Autobots) who could each become a robot, vehicle and base before they all combined into the giant "Big Powered" base! Now these classic Japanese characters are being brought into the 21st Century thanks to Takara Tomy. Today Takara Tomy listed a new version of "Big Powered" on their web site along with stock photos!

Back in July, Takara Tomy revealed a blue colored Big Convoy figure at its Wonderfest display, however no details were given on the figure beyond it being based on (but may not necesarily be a duplicate of) the Lucky Draw Big Convoy released in the 90's. This figure will be an "LG-EX" Takara Tomy Mall exclusive such as Grand Maximus. Here are some of the details from Takara Tomy Mall (via Google Translate):

Amazon Japan has put up a listing for the upcoming "Encore" Big Convoy! This version of the figure will feature a deco based on his appearance in the "Beast Wars Neo" cartoon, featuring more yellow paint appliations and even cartoon-style eyes in beast mode (don't worry, they still look fierce!). Amazon Japan lists Big Convoy at ¥8,640 (about $77.72 USD) with a January 25, 2019 "on sale" (presumably "in stock") date.

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.
