Is this a diaclone battle convoy (prime)?

    I thought that the diaclone prime/battle convoy had the same cab as the grey/metal plated transformer version. The pics on this one look like the less dense driver seats so I'm questioning it. I'd like to get some info/opinions?

    Thanks

    doesnt mean that the prime is the same one that originally comes with it.

    if you buy a bottle of mountain dew and pepsi is inside, are you still gonna believe its mountain dew?

    It looks just like my 84 edition OP. Was there a difference between Diaclone Convoy and TF OP?

    Does it have Hasbro markings anywhere on it?

    Ok, first off, yes i can read and I have a "magic rock" to sell you because it says magic rock on it!

    Here's what I know.

    Everything about it seems to match what was on the Fred's workshop,
    It has TAKARA Japan on the tailer pin, no hasbro markings. Everything in the trailer looks authentic. The only thing that I question is the cab itself. I am concerned that it's a transofrmer cab thrown in with the diaclone stuff. Please only respond if you know deails like the cab seats, smoke stack and gas tank mounts, etc. I basically need to know if the diaclone one was always like the grey/metal plate transformer, or like the standard purple release, or something else. Thanks!

    Let me just clarify. My main concern is that what I see is a cab with square smoke stack mounts which is like the grey/metal plated transformer prime but seems to have the later seat molds. Here is the pic from Fred's Variation page.

    It appears this diaclone cab has the "later cab" seats with the "gray roller primestack" smoke stacks so I'm wondering if this diaclone was doctored with a transformer prime or if that really was the molding of diaclone powered convoy.
