YouTube - Alternity Convoy (Silver Version)
Just as good as the red version!
Do you like red or silver better?
I think I like the red just a SMIDGE better, but they both rule.
Deffinately red for me, GEEWUN rules.
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.
Peaugh, my wallet hates you.... you've just sold me on Silver Convoy and Blue Megs.... which means I plan to try and buy all 5 alternity's AND Masterpiece Grimlock all in the time of 3-4 months.... Thank God I have a birthday this month...
hmmm i think the red one is a little better.... screw it they both rule!!!
Beautiful. I hope mine is coming soon!
That would make a great jazz kitbash.
the black one will be awesome! i hope a lot he have the reverse deco of this one (black car part and silver robot parts)
no pics of the black has been released yet?
i make this poor digibash (yeah i dont take lot of time on it indeed)
peaugh must be really busy if saw these videos last week and did not post his videos himself......
So...it's not diecast at all? Awww....
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?? ^^^
I couldn't decide which one to get, so I got both. Good lord this figure is amazing. I hope this line gets some legs.
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?
