    Hey Guys,

    I need some help deciding what version of Alternity Convoy to get. The red one (vibrant red) most resembles Optimus Prime, and looks the most like a Prime figure. The silver one, to me, looks the most like some bad-ass, robotic, alien lifeform, all shiny and metallic looking. And then, the black one's (Super Black) got the whole Nemesis Prime, sexy, evil thing going on. If I had the money I'd just get all three, but sadly, I am not a rich man, and can only afford one..... right now. ;)  Any opinions or suggestions to help me in my buying decision would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.



    p.s. I'm leaning towards the Super Black version right now, but still not sure.....

    I depends on if you want it to be a prime or not. I was gonna get silver because it looked like one of the g1 omnibots to me. I went with black because it looked cooler and i got a combo deal with megatron

    Yeah... I really don't care if it looks like a Prime. Which is why I was initially bent on getting the silver version. Although, it would be nice to have the red one if I ever got the silver Megs, cuz then it would be like.. OP and Megs in G1-ish colors and stuff.

    Either Red or Black, depending on your preference.

    Red: Because he's in Optimus Prime's original colours.

    Black: Just looks so cool in black. The Alt mode in black is just wicked.

    Silver is kinda meh to me.

    I definitely like the alt mode in black the best. Yep, I'm totally leaning towards Super black.

    I've been fortunate enough to pick up all three (red's coming this week, the other two are in my Pile of Loot). I like the Black/Nemesis Prime version the best in terms of look. The red one does look nice. I never buy repaints of molds that are still the same character (no Nightwatch Primes or Rescue Ratchets for me), but the silver Prime one looked so nice I decided to get that one too, so for me it still left a pretty big impression, even if it isn't in G1 colors like the red one.

    I wanted the silver one first (pre super black) but I like prime and it wasnt prime enough for me......NOW it would be really hard not to get that super black one though.

    I have all three as well. And I would rank them :

    Red
    Silver
    Black. (cool, but the black washes out most of his incredible detail.)
