Takara brings us a great reissue of Car Robot God Fire Convoy, better known as Omega Prime from the original RID cartoon and toyline from 2001. This reissue brings us a new cartoon accurate deco, and replaces most of the chrome of the original release with metallic paint, new sound and voice clip (recorded by the original Japanese voice actors). More remarkable is the inclusion of the enormous Super God Sword which was originally available with the exclusive ToysRus Japan 2-Pack of the same figures, but in clear plastic.
The packaging is very similar to the original ToysRUs Japan exclusive box. The ToysRUs logos of the original box are now replaced with the Encore logos. The front of the now features a picture of the reissue mold showing the new colors, and indicates that it will come with 47 electronic sounds nonetheless. The back of the box retains the cool CGI art of God Fire Convoy (RID Omega Prime), Fire Convoy (RID Optimus Prime) and God Magnus (RID Ultra Magnus).
According to the information shared by Robotkingdom, the figure starts shipping on 24th March, 2018. Great new for loyal RID/Car Robot fans like your newsie here. A great opportunity to grab two of the best molds of this line. You can click on the bar to check out the mirrored images on this news post and then sound off at the 2005 Boards!
