    I hope we get a proper Galvatron that isn't a headmaster.

    It's Primus. Based on the Lucky Draw Gold Rodimus Prime figure.

    It's believed this takes place in the short amount of time between "Return of Optimus Prime Part 2" and the first episode of Headmasters. Where there was a truce between Optimus and Galvatron after the Hate Plague incident.

    Here is a translation from Creedence: Generations Selects Star Convoy Comic - Transformers Discussion - The Allspark Forums

    In the year 2011, the battling Chief Convoy and Galvatron were called into another dimension by a mysterious existence!

    Galvatron: Wha? So have Convoy and I died!?

    Thus the two were shown the future they were destined for!

    Convoy: Ah...

    Galvatron: Enough play! I'll kill you first!

    Convoy: Wait, Galvatron! Maybe this being is...

    Primus: Children of the stars... the world is now in crisis...

    Galvatron: What is this!?

    Convoy: The Earth!

    Primus: Bring back the proper history with the power of the Silver Matrix!

    Convoy: Ah... I feel it! The "Power of Stars"!

    Convoy: Transform! Is this a vision of the future... a prototype, in another words?!

    By the light of the Silver Matrix carrying the power of universal creation

    Convoy's body was upgraded!

    Galvatron: Convoy, you fool! He said you will die in the future!

    Look! This figure is the new Star Warrior, Star Convoy!

    Star Convoy: You do not understand, Galvatron!

    Star Convoy: Silver Matrix Combine!

    Star Convoy: Matrix Weapon, Big Bang Cannon!

    Star Convoy: Even if this body will be sacrificed in the future, let it! If I am to die with a shining star on my chest, I think I will be proud of it.

    Star Convoy: That is the Cybertron soul!

    Star Convoy: The light is extinguished... did you leave for another world? Thank you... Primus.

    Thus, the world's crisis was ended... but...

    Galvatron: I see now! The deaths the future will bring! Everything is my destiny and also that power of stars.

    Galvatron: I, Galvatron, have this!​

    Hmmm...okay, so the Generations Select Star Convoy is being promoted as a Pre-Battlestars Star Convoy - of whom then reverts back to regular Convoy for Headmasters in order to die and later take on the Battlestars Star Convoy at his rebirth later on? Eh, not really a fan of that.

    So did Sakamoto change his artstyle or has he been replaced?  Hope he hasn\'t, as I really like his stuff.

    So what's the genegen consensus on the reception of Star Convoy? I think that the robot mode is spot on in terms of appearance.

    Nope, not Sakamoto. This is a Generations Selects toy - the Legends toyline is over - and they've clearly chosen somebody new to do manga for this line.

    Are they establishing this Star Convoy as being a different version of Optimus Prime from before the Battlestars comic and unrelated to the original JapG1 version? Does this mean that Star Convoy and Super Megatron are going to revert back to Optimus Prime and Galvatron so that they can die and come back again as Star Convoy and Super Megatron later?

    ...Why? Sometimes the stuff that goes on in these Japanese continuities in order to include exact toy-accurate bodies and not breach the already fairly vague continuity is ridiculous.

    "Big bang cannon" sounds like a Vegeta attack, and I love it.

    Just do it, we will be grateful. Most of us. Someone always complains.

    Holy Shit!! Prime has a MAtrix Blaster cannon now? Whoa?? Watch out remnants of Unicron, that Matrix infused blaster looks almost like a Buster Rifle from Gundam!

    I forget, is the upcoming Armada/Micron Legend Convoy going to be an LG-EX release? Hopefully Sakamoto will be back for the manga if it is. This manga isn’t all that great, whoever wrote it.

    The Legends line in general are done and over with. We STILL don't know what's the deal with the Armada Optimus Prime toy we saw a few months back.
