    Wasn't there a very expensive limited edition Convoy that was like this?

    I believe there was, but I'm not 100% sure.

    Here's what I found that was similar to the Gold Reissue/KO listed above:

    1. Takara reissued the original toy in its original 1985 Japanese packaging in 2000, with an all-black recolor being available from assorted Japanese conventions and another variant with gold chromed parts as a lucky draw prize;

    2. Takara reissued the toy again as New Year Special version in January 2002, sporting clear blue windows (similar to Good Bye Convoy) and featuring additional accessories such as a Matrix necklage and a show accurate recolor of the Action Master Optimus Prime figure

    I'm not a fan of Reissue/KOs, but I kinda like this Gold edition with the Matrix.

    This was first sighted on Ebay over a month ago. Someone posted about it in the Ebay section.

    They're unofficial releases so they're Knock Offs.

    Looks nice, but I don't think I'd be interested in that particular piece even if it were official.
