    Takara is going to be releasing the iPod Convoy in traditional G1 colours. It will have the new head but the cab will be in the original red and blue colour and the trailer, while still retaining its iPod speakers and functions, will be grey in colour and have the Convoy strip down the side.

    This figure is due for release in March of 2008 and is retailed at 15000 yen.

    The image I received had do not reprint across all the images but they were just retools of the images for the white iPod Convoy.

    That pretty much describes everything they've released since they merged with Tomy.

    Shoe TFs, a green Starscream, overpriced Beast Wars & G1 Cassette repaints, Kiss thingies, clear protoforms, gold Bumblebees........uuuugh :thumbdown 

    And to think, Galaxy Force was so awesome!

    Awesome. Now where can I get an iPod in G1 Prime colors? Maybe grey with the trailer stripe down the back and blue/red dial?

    Apparently, the Japanese definition of Generation One is "Convoy".

    And since the fans like Generation One so much... Well, I'm sure we'll see even more releases of Convoy instead of new products in Japan.

    BTW, do the Japanese Transformers fans feel the same way about Grimlock that the rest of the world does? Is there any possibility of a Masterpiece Grimlock? Seems they only care about Convoy, Megatron, Starscream, Soundwave, Convoy, Convoy, Convoy, and Convoy as far as G1 is concerned.

    DO WANT! I'd get it over the other two. Looks cool, and goes better with my black 'Pod.

    Maybe Reprolabels will figure out a way of making iPod faceplates to match the trailers.

    YES, so I could have got THIS in the first place without springing for the white one. Bah... Fraggers... forget it, I like my white one and I already have a G1 Prime, so pass.
