They've just updated it, should be pretty interesting
What's going on there?
Um, so this black version is a copy of a droid? I'm a bit lost.
Judging by the name dropping, maybe you get to see previous eHobby exclusives drawn by Yoshioka, which will be cool. (Still not buying though.)
OH MY GOD! This is carrying on the story of the e-Hobby exclusives from a few years back! That's just awesome! When we last left that story, Prime had taken on a black body and saved Ultra Magnus from the clutches of Galvatron II. How nifty that they're tying this black Optimus to the last use of the concept!
^ Thank you for the clarification
I like this. Black clones.
Oh crikey! I saw "Comic Cover" and first thought the toy box was going to be a comic cover box like MP-08x Grimlock.
Man, I need to learn me some Japanese.
Maybe they can plan to release a toy of this "GalvatronII" while they're at it.
They already did - he was the original-colours Galvatron that was exclusive to eHobby that accompanied the wide-release anime-colours Galvatron reissue a few years ago.
Yeah, the one in my avatar.
So he is a clone, huh? Now I need 21 of them! (kidding)
even though I collect black Primes, I would probably lay of off this one as the 2 MP customs I have are better looking. (That, and do I really need it?)
But since there is a holiday coming up, I asked the wife to get it for me... I don't really want/need anything else, so it is a good way of keeping the Black Prime collection going, but I can definitely see why a lot of guys don't want it.
Thanks for the translations and clarifications, guys!
good to know, thanks
They put the Destron sleeper agent in control of an army of Convoy clones? Does anyone else think that is a disaster looking for someone to happen to?
interesting does any one besides me think that letting Wheeljack build the clones is asking for epic battlefield failsplsions XD
Wheeljack's "skills" are legendary, so you have to wonder how secret his involvement is. Think about it, if the Destrons found out Wheeljack was the mastermind, they would undoubtedly be less fearful.
Dammit, so I've got to get 21 of these things! j/k
Sounds like one expensive army builder.
Obscure E-Hobby references RULE!
Well with the exception of NQSC, those black Convoy-repaints were generally evil. Seems to me Flipsides works as a lovely plot device to allow collectors to have these guys work for whichever faction they want (Though I suspect that, officially, in the end the Destrons are gonna have an Evil-Convoy Army!)
