Robotkingdom has uploaded images of the packaging of the next Takara Tomy Encore reissue: Big Convoy, the fearless Cybertron leader from the Japanese Beast Wars Neo cartoon.
We had seen a small picture of the box at the past Tokyo Comic-Con 2018, and now we have clear shots of the packaging of this new entry in the Encore line. The box is largely the same as the original vintage release with updated Takara-Tomy branding and an extra badge denoting it as part of the Transformers Encore line. The back of the box shows some differences compared to the vintage box. The old box showed a nice CGI art with the Beast Wars Neo logo and some Japanese text below. The new Encore box reduces the CGI art to just a quarter of the back of the box, and now we have images of Big Convoy in both robot and mammoth mode, showing off the new cartoon-accurate color scheme.
This reissue is expected to start shipping on January 26th, 2019. Don’t miss your chance to grab this great mold from the Japanese Beast Wars line, you can still pre-order it via our sponsors below. Click on the bar to see the image and share your impressions on the 2005 Boards!
