MP-01B Black Convoy Released
In Stock @ BBTS
so its spoussed to be nemmises prime?
i dont think he read the ads...
Not Nemesis Prime, there's a story explanation for it in an older thread somewhere.
The hell? I thought it wasn't going to be released 'til 2010?
Eh, whatever. I'm not complaining.
Officialy is this called "Black Convoy" or "Convoy Black"?
As to the story:
So they are robots built that look like Optimus, and they are controlled by Flipsides, so no fear of them falling into Decepticon hands right? ;-)
I am a huge fan of the masterpiece series,but gotta pass on this one,come on takara stop with the repaints already...
Like the looks of Black Convoy. Hope he is still in stock past Christmas...
Has anyone noticed or commented about the G1 Devastator Head and waist/hip/thighs by Crazy Devy in the Accessories Section of BBTS Transformers?
They're officially called:
CDMW-01 Construction Brigade Power Parts Custom Head
CDMW-02 Construction Brigade Power Parts Custom Hips/Waist
Convoy Black Version. In the Japanese continuity, a heroic Convoy taking up black armour is always "Convoy Black Version", Black Convoy is the evil incarnation where he's an evil twin of Convoy.
That's what I thought. People in the US seem to not know the difference between Nemesis Prime and Optimus Prime in Black. I thought Optimus Prime in Black is Convoy Black, which is why the title of this thread "Black Convoy" confused me.
The box also gives it as "Convoy Black Version", but generally the Japanese series tend towards their recolors being "character name special version" rather than the US trend toward "special version character name". It's a random quirk of formatting.

So this one seems to be an Asian market exclusive version, without the exclusive eHobby comic, but with a cloth pouch and metal plate (which probably do not come with eHobby version.)
I really want one, but my money's tight after spending bit too much on Black Friday. Hope they'll still have it in January.
Has something like this ever happened before?
I would have rather had a TF:TM battle damage deco version than this one.
should be Hongkong edition.
Japan edition should be released in Jan or Feb next year
I'm just glad to see it "in-stock" and shipping soon. I want my Black Prime asap.
Personally, I rather like the Masterpiece plate that is included in this version. I wonder if there really are 2 versions and if so, which will ultimately be harder to find and worth more.
I'm surprised the Asian market one is out before the Japanese one, and by a couple months.
I'm waiting for the Japanese e-Hobby version with the comic.
Cant wait to get mine from the mail!!!
