Here’s the big one – at the International Tokyo Toy Show 2011, Masterpiece Convoy Version 2.0 was officially shown off to the public for the first time. 2005 Boards member Masabon was in the audience and he took a video recording of the entire unveiling – which you can see by reading on.
Masabon has also kindly provided us with a few key pictures including the comparison image of the new Convoy 2.0 and the original Masterpiece Convoy, showing the difference in design between the two toys. The toy was displayed after the presentation, and Masabon has also supplied pictures of the display.
On a final note, Masabon reports that the designer who designed Convoy talked enthusiastically about how he wants to make a combiner for the Masterpiece series, and said that he wanted to make a Masterpiece Bruticus. This is not to say there will be a Masterpiece Bruticus, just that the designer would like to make one.
It’s pretty positive news though to know that like us, the designers also like the idea of a Masterpiece Combiner Transformer!
