    I'm definitely liking the vibrant red one a lot more. I still have the silver one in box unopened and I think I'll be moving it on to someone else soon. Looks really dull in alt mode and I while Alternity is the only line to really pique my interest since the original run of BT ended, I don't need the same toy in two colors.

    Ultimately, the red Godzilla Convoy just "pops" a lot more visually in both modes. The high gloss red paint looks so good.

    The internal frame/core is die-cast. The car shell/panels are not.

    Kind of the opposite of Binaltech where die-cast panels cover a plastic frame. This time it's plastic wrapped over a die-cast frame.

    I really like the silver version. I don't really have a 1::1 relationship to him as "Convoy," though... To me, MP Prime is THE Convoy I need in my collection... I even turned my Alt Prime into Ironhide.

    The red version tries really hard to scream "Optimus," in spite of being a carbot-- The criticism of the silver version looking "Generic," is kind of the very reason I like it. The mold is great, esp. in bot mode.

    Doesn't the silver one make anyone else think of our very own Boombox?? ^^^

    Yeah, I've got both versions as well. I think once I get the silver Megatron I'll give away the silver convoy in a contest.

    even though you have another one, i can't believe you'd give it away. Not in a bad way, but if you keep it you could call it Drift thats what i did...

    I want the megs now too... Man i love these figs. Well if there is a contest, make it go to someone who deserves this

    I'm surprised more people aren't unofficially considering this version to be Alternity Magnus - it might not be white, but it's close enough, no?
