    Maybe one of you can help me out. How big is the Hybrid Style Convoy? I have been eye balling this set for quite sometime.

    I was also wondering if someone would be kind enough to take a comparison picture of the hybrid style convoy next to a classics or henkei Optimus Prime if they have it.

    And also have the hybrid convoy's gun in the classics Optimus hand. I'm still looking for an accurate cannon for my classics Optimus.

    Sorry if this is asking for a lot.

    lol, you're not gonna be using Hybrid Convoy's gun for Classics Prime. Hybrid Convoy's pretty damned small. He's a little shorter than Revoltech Convoy and Megatron.

    Still a must-have in my opinion, but yeah, don't be surprised if you buy it and you marvel at how tiny-yet-detailed this guy is.

    Yeah, I didn't have Revoltech Convoy at the time I took that picture, but THS is about a head shorter than the Revoltech figs. But get him, he's friggin' fantastic.

    Lol yeah I figured that but I had to try, this saves me from buying two for the sake of accessories.

    That just sold me on in it.


    Thanks for the pics Optimus Sledge and Twee. Is the Galaxy Convoy worth picking up also?

    Galaxy Convoy's pretty awesome too. Not quite as solid as Convoy, but it's definitely worth picking up.

    I have both. I love them, I wish they would have continued the line. Both come with 6 different hands. Both have the matrix and it's removable. Both have metal and loads of accessories. The G1 has more though, but he doesn't combine with his trailer. I kept hoping for a god ginrai or star saber THS. I'd have loved some megatrons. Their pretty solid too. THS 02 survived a car accident I had. There were pieces of him all over, I was horrified. But they all popped right back in and he looked good as new. The hard part though was finding all the pieces.

    They may have the best size to fun ratio of any Transformer.

    I just bought saw and bought Hybrid Convoy for the first time today and am in love with the size and detail! I love the heft and feel it has due to the die cast metal too. It's perfect for display on my office desk. What other toys are of similar size and quality, anybody know? Needn't be Transformers neccessarily...

    I picked up THS-02 and THS-02B (black Convoy/Nemesis Prime). Both are pretty neat (so glad they came with trailers), but yes it is a bit disarming how small they are. Still, pretty slick. Mini-masterpiece or Baby Masterpiece, whatever you want to call them. I'd get the black one too if you can find one for a decent price. He has two extra guns, plus the same accessories as Prime and two extra Prime heads (I have no idea why, but he does).

    The extra heads are in the style of the G2 comic. If you fit one on the regular THS-02, then give him the black trailer, you've got a G2 Hybrid Style Prime.

    Agreed!

    Just don't look too closely at him if you transform him into vehicle mode, though....
