    I feel like Star Convoy is a missed opportunity. TT should have either gone full on Star Convoy homage or made this a "for reals" Powermaster Optimus Prime update. This is just Optimus Prime with a poor cab mode with an unusable trailer that combines into an okay Star Convoy. Ugh. I wanted to want this but it's trying its hardest to be 75% redundant to the rest of my collection...

    At least the price is reasonable.

    I’m not sure why Star Convoy is just G1 Optimus in Star Convoy pants. The vehicle mode being G1 is a huge turn-off.

    That Star Convoy looks like it solves the problem of the terrible truck mode!

    I thought Armada prime was going to be the small component of star convoy?

    I see the back of the truck cab is still a mess then. Shame they couldn't be bothered to swap the rear trailer wheels out for treads too.

    No, that's a completely different figure. Armada Prime is his own thing.

    Yeah, but the cab wouldn't be correct then. Really, this is just a mess. it's really becoming nothing more than a novelty as it doesn't fit well anywhere aside from looking good on a shelf.

    The remold of Orion looks horrible.

    And I agree. A gold star on his chest isnt going to make me buy this again.

    Star Convoy looks OK but not and the $50 or more a leader class G:SS toy will go for, and that's assuming he get's a US release. Super Megatron could be interesting, but I'll wait and see if 1) he gets a US release and 2) if he's not over priced. Snaptrap, if that is him, is only worth a damn if we get at least four more Seacons.

    I believe so. The closest we ever got to a super Megatron figure was the Animated Leader class figure (who was Inspired by him) I believe.

    Woah! I'm 100% in for Star Convoy. I honestly just purchased the PotP Leader class Prime just to have a G1 cartoon looking Pax. I'll have no problem displaying this as the fully combined Star Convoy. If those teasers are for Super Megatron and Snaptrp, I'd bite. Make me wonder if we'll see the other 5 Seacons too (or at least 4).

    This is going to need a LOT of work to look halfway decent.
