    I've see this for sale a couple of times and have a question about its size. How tall is the blue "powered" Convoy before he becomes Ultra Magnus? I like the "blue" color and always wanted one. But if I'm going to pay big $$$ to have one, I want to know its size compared to the regular G1 Convoy (AKA: Optimus Prime, etc.)

    2nd, was there ever a Blue Convoy released by itself? So far, the only one I've seen comes with the Diaclone Ultra Magnus released as a limited edition in 2001? I also always wanted a blue Convoy/Optimus too and this is the only toy I've ever seen it in this color format.

    Any additional information on this/these toys would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    the blue convoy figure is just a repainted optimus prime figure......

    and that is the original color of the cab of ultra magnus. Powered Convoy is Pre-transformers ultra magnus. that is his diaclone colors. it was originally available in the diaclone line as powered convoy and then again in the same line in a gift set with a red mirage and black sideswipe. then it got rereleased in 2001 as movie preview ultra magnus

    here give me a second to measure my encore prime:

    prime is 6.25 inches. i can't give you the measurements of the ultra magnus trailer. prime would be about your average deluxe

    If I'm not mistaken, only some of the "Powered Convoy" had a blue Optimus inside, some had a red Optimus. I know I was looking at buying one from Italy that was the red one.

    But as Guard Convoy said, size-wise, it's a G1 Prime.
