TransformersBeast Wars Neo
Big Convoy (Big Prime) is the Maximal leader from the Japanese Transformers series Beast Wars Neo, and is an ultra class (the next size up from a modern voyager class) and wow is he cool!
BWN was in the late 90’s, and a lot of figures which never made it to America. I bought this guy online in the early 2000’s, probably off of Ebay. I believe this is the Korean version.
Big Convoy is an amazing Transformer. His robot mode has many homages to Optimus prime (Convoy), the face is obvious, but his chest also has what looks like lights on the top.
His gun is huge, he also has leg mounted missiles on each leg, and Big Convoy also has a removable Matrix inside of the chest cavity.
Notable mention is that Big Convoy was the first Prime (Convoy) to have a removable Matrix. Lio Convoy was the first to have a Matrix, but it was molded into his chest.
Beast mode is a wooly mammoth, and the transformation is pretty tricky, but after a while you’ll get the hang of it.
Probably the only downside to BC are his arms. They can be loose at times, and I’ll be honest; I’m amazed I got him to hold his gun long enough to take some pictures.
But overall Big Convoy is a kick ass Transformers, and a great addition to your Beast Wars collection.
