    I like the red, just makes it look more like convoy.

    If you're going to buy a Convoy, it has to be red.

    With Megatron being Silver you need some color in the line otherwise they'll all feel the same.

    Silver. While bland, it is more unified than the red and blue, the latter of which is not in significant quanity to offset how abrupt it looks.

    I got the silver. I think that the red looks better in alt mode, but the silver looks better in bot mode. Megs in silver is a lot darker, so I will get him silver too.

    I went red for Convoy and pre-ordered silver for Megatron. Those colors work the best.

    I'm going with silver, because I don't accept Optimus as a car. I won't be sticking it with my Prime collection.

    To me it'll just be another generic carformer, though an intricately engineered one. I might put it next to Universe Silverstreak, Rotf Sideswipe and Rotf Sideways.

    Red, for purely aesthetic reasons, it's far more striking than the silver one.

    I got both anyway, and will be getting black also.

    I own the silver since I personally think its the nicer looking. If story is a big thing for you their is a slight difference...

    Red Alternity is the original Convoy with a new body given to him to protect earth from the Hyptherion (cant quite recall if that was the right name for it)

    Silver Alternity is the physical form of the Alternity that they need to take when they need to act in the physical world.

    If your the kinda person who likes interesting facts Silver Convoy's Silver colour is the same as the silver used on the GTR in most of its promo photography

    I bought the silver one when they came out last month. Very nice figure and a more unified colorscheme (I feel) then the red and blue. For some reason the red and blue colorscheme feels more like an afterthought than an actual intended color scheme... and that's probably because of how little blue is actually on the figure itself.

    Also, I got the silver version so I could call him a different character on my shelf.

    Silver is definitely looking sweeter.
