    Since there seems to be BW topics today I thought I'd ask.

    I had to get this Munky. :D  To me it looks more like Optimus Prime in a gorilla suit than Optimus Primal. I think Primal (if I remember correctly) only raised his face shield once in BW. Anyway, for you BW experts, it here a reason this Convoy looks more like Prime than Primal?

    That's how the original toy looked which was designed before the show. The toy was originally concepted to be Optimus Prime, just reformatted, meanwhile to emote better the show added in his familiar mouth and only showed him with the face plate two times if memory serves. I still prefer the remold version with the mouth.

    Thank you! So this Convoy really is an "Optimus Prime".:wink:  I also agree that Primal looks better with a mouth. It's what sets him apart form G1 Optimus Prime.
