In Demand Toys has once again posted some advance photos of upcoming Transformers products. This time out, they have posted official photos of Earthrise Optimus Prime. Back in October renders were released of this figure, but this gives us a look at the actual figure in package and showing off what the toy can do.
Fellow fan Yenting Lai has posted several photos of the upcoming Generations Selects Star Convoy figure, showing off more of this figure than we have seen via official sources so far. These photos show off the packaging for the figure and a nice close up look at both the cab/robot figure and the combined "Star Convoy" form.
Blue Big Convoy led the Primus Vanguard, protecting dimensions across invasion from those who would seek to do harm. He would eventually fall after being betrayed by Straxus! Check out my review and gallery of this Takara Tomy Mall exclusive version of Big Convoy.
Years ago Ben's World of Transformers suffered a catastrophic loss of many image files and some reviews. Over the years I have tried to restore some of these whenever I could. Today I present to you my updated review for Big Convoy from "Beast Wars Neo"! In addition to new photos I have added a small but of updated commentary to the review. Enjoy!
In "Dark of the Moon", Optimus Prime rolled into battle with a trailer that transformed into a weapon storage platform. This was a dramatic callback to G1 Optimus Prime's trailer. However, the "Dark of the Moon" toy line never included a trailer that transformed in quite the same manner, leaving it to "Studio Series" many years later.
As part of their promotion for the upcoming "Generations Selects" Star Convoy figure, Takara Tomy has posted a two page comic featuring Optimus Prime (aka Convoy) and Galvatron taking on some nasty invaders with a little help from the Matrix of Leadership! This comic plays off of the play pattern on Star Convoy, showing Convoy changing into the larger "Star Convoy" form and the creation of his Matrix blaster.
Optimus Prime is the wisest of the Autobots and his leadership has kept the Autobots from being defeated by Megatron's evil Decepticons! When he comes to Earth, the Autobot leader takes on a new disguise to blend in. Today's review and gallery brings you a look at the Japanese exclusive Legendary Optimus Prime!
