    Kind of the point no? This has done them well so far.

    If you're going to redeco a figure as a promotion for your clothing store, what better one than the original G1 Convoy.

    A G1 convoy?? We can jolly well use MP01 mold or MP10 mold which is also can be a good representative for G1 Convoy

    Lot more expensive, and not as iconic / kitschy.

    I'm curious about this too. I could bat back a few answers to Steppers queries of why they keep using the original G1 Optimus Prime mold, that might be moot if the other two molds shown get used at some stage. A translation would be greatly appreciated but I won't hold my breath. ;) 

    The red colour scheme doesn't seem as loud - in these photos - as I might have otherwise thought. I only own the green camouflage version and to mea at least, that one pops visually.

    Hopefully, it has something to do with the rumored re-issue.

    I think it mentions a display at one of the stores of the first 5 leaders in G1, which would be Optimus, Rodimus, Fortress Maximus, God Ginrai, and Star Saber. So perhaps that's why they show those 3.

    A green cab & green trailer redeco. Sure. It was different and overall cool looking.
    A grey cab & grey trailer redeco. Still pretty cool looking.

    From the pictures this new red version is just the trailer being red. Seems a tad pointless. All blue would have been neat but that would have infringed upon at least Powered Convoy's cab.

    Green was awesome.
    Grey was good.
    Red just looks too much like the OG Optimus IMHO.

    I'd dig having a G1 Prime in a camo deco, but I don't see myself shelling out the money for it. I dunno, maybe one day.

    They should have done orange. We had a fire guts version, but never a G1 cab in orange.

    I quite like that ; But isn't it about time they stopped using the Ultra Magnus' front wheels on Optimus (Convoy) ?

    How much does it cost and do you have to buy and expensive shirt to qualify to get it ?

    Not much of a difference to the main body, obviously the trailer is different.

    I think it would have been better if it was desert camo.

    Purple next please. Now that, I'd buy.

    Optimus PRIDE!

    EDIT:

    What's up with Rodimus and Star Saber at the bottom? Hints at future exclusives?

    Will this look cool in your collection? HELL NO!

    Unique? Maybe

    Interesting? Not really

    Cool? Hell no

    Stupid? Highly likely

    Pointless? For sure

    Waste of money? Goes without saying
