    The reason for this is that TV Magazine is aimed at a young audience. Some older people did enter as we were one of them. We also the Galaxy Convoy and Grand Convoy coloring contests, sadly winning nothing.

    It's funny, because it looks like nothing more than a cheap street vendor bootleg - but because it's a contest limited edition prize all these people think it's the shiznit. I mean, really. I could list a bootleg on eBay as "SUPER RARE LIMITED EDITION" and see how much it goes for...lol

    Ahh, it's almost as if it's 1991 all over again... ;)  This guy would look great next to Action Master Thundercracker and Action Master Elite Turbomaster... :)

    I like that Shockblast-colored Prime. Oh, I'm sorry, "CONVOOOOOOOOOY!!"

    edit: And I should use the proper name of "Laserwave",too.

    True, but if you were the kid who colored the drawing in that they used to make this as a prize for him, you wouldn't think so.

    Yeah, I think people are forgetting that this was a coloring contest figure for like little children. And the prize is random plastic and an old, never to be used again mold.

    Let the little kids have their fun and I bet they will always remember making that Prime. Besides there is only going to be 10 of these things, it is not like it was meant to be picked up by any of us anywho.

    Ah, so I guess they filter out the entries that are obviously from grown people to keep the contest in reach of their prime audience. Makes sense.

    I was curious if 10 were given away, is it 10 in that same color or 10 based off the individually colored primes in the one scanned pic? Does anyone have the link to this auction as I want to track it and see how it ends.
