    Note that character-wise, this is just the heroic Convoy in a black color version, not the evil Black Convoy. :)

    Black Convoy looks nice. I may have to think about getting that one. Looks good in black.

    Are all the cars in this "line" going to look exactly the same, minus some color differences?

    megatron is a different mold (although transformation appears to be similar- though not identical).

    The big question is will they expand the line beyond these two molds (which is not looking good since there are no rumblings of others so far).

    Wonder how long before Megatron releases.

    BTW, the Prime (convoy) from this line has to be one of the nicest transformers I own.

    I need that Super Black "Heroic" Convoy there! :rock 

    Despite him being a Repaint, he's just way too cool to pass.

    Hope this line continues. I'd like to see a Skyline mold (maybe Starscream), and a Maxima mold (maybe Ultra Magnus or Ironhide).

    In that case, all you need is to make the Autobot logo purple, and you have a modern-Earth mode for Shattered Glass Optimus Primal!

    "Megatron" - Arm Cannon = "NOT Megatron"

    "NOT Megatron" + blue colour scheme = big, fat FAIL

    Simple really.

    Didn't you mean "Shattered Glass Ultra Magnus"?

    That or the silver one.

    I can't wait for the Black Convoy but after seeing a close up of Meg's head in the Generations book, I'm gonna pass.
