Decide for me!
Well, according to the fiction, they're both two different characters. IIRC, the Alternity Black Convoy is actually the same Black Convoy who was a Wooly Mammoth back in Hasbro's Transformers Universe line. Apparently, he's been given a chance for redemption and is now a good guy.
With that in mind, I'm a huge Black Convoy/Nemesis Prime/ RID Scourge fanboy, so I say go with Black Convoy. IMO, every Optimus Prime mold looks better in black, lol.
Prime is red, so....Red. Although the silver would be my close second choice.
I was trying to decide this question a couple months ago, and I finally decided the silver looked best. Also, within the fiction, the silver Alternity Convoy is the original G1 character (although now from a branching timeline following the events of Binaltech). Whereas all the other Alternity Convoys are alternate universe versions of the character (or a clone, in the case of Black Convoy).
After looking at them for a long time, while I did like the more traditional color scheme of the red, I thought it looked too garish somehow. Maybe the blue on the legs made it look like he was wearing thigh-high socks. I dunno, it just seemed weird to me. Even though the silver version is more monochromatic, there is still some really nice color separation going on. And it's the color the real car was originally released as.
Red. But I went with silver.
Wish I had know that when I bought the red one, Can I change my answer to silver ? I agree that the silver is the superior deco for the mold but in the end I chose the red one to fit in with the rest of my Prime collection.
Pretty sure that the Black Convoy isn't a clone. Like I said in my post, the black version is a representation of the Universe 1.0 Nemesis Prime who was a wooly mammoth. That Nemesis Prime used to be an Optimus Prime from a different dimension but had his spark tortured and perverted by Unicron until he turned evil.
Fellas, thanks for the response. I wouldve gone with silver, HOWEVER, I already have an alternity silver megatron, so I don't want two silver cars.
Yeah, that was a concern for me as well, but the silvers really are very different, so I decided I didn't mind. But yeah, if you're only going to have one silver car, it's got to be Megatron.
I own the Black version, but I've seen and prefer the red.
Silver or Black
Red is pretty neat for a G1-ish Optimus Prime. Silver with the Reprolabels Jazz stickers is pretty sweet. Black is nice but I was never a Nemesis Prime or Scourge fan. Just depends on whether or not you are.
I think the black one has the edge for me. Although the red is G1-accurate, colour-wise, I think the black/teal pairing works better than the red/blue in robot mode.
both are equally awesome. i'll leave the tough decision to you!
but IMHO, personally like the vibrant red ver.
What universe is the Red one from?
It's the Blue Megatron that's from the G1 cartoon, right?
Not sure if this is any use or not, but I did a (very) quick side-by-side shot of black & red
I don't have the silver Convoy, so I can't do a comparison against that.
