    Once again, translated by Sanchimaru, lettered by me:

    Link

    Reading notes:
    - Read right to left.
    - English names and dub attack callouts used again.
    - Grand Scourge's combined mode is named "Scourge Grand Prime" in the original Japanese, to match "Convoy Grand Prime", I've used "Grand Scourge Maximus" to retain symmetry with "Optimus Maximus".
    - Galvatron II's early adventures in the Japanese G1 universe, before travelling back in time, were in the post-G2 era, where he fought e-HOBBY Laser Ultra Magnus. His adventures in the '80s are from the TV Magazine story pages.
    - When Galvatron II discusses Trypticon, in the original Japanese he says he commanded "Dino-saurer [Dainozaurā], the earliest version of Dinosaurer [Dainazaurā]". Sakamoto is being a massive nerd: the former version of the name was used in the Scramble City OVA, where Trypticon also had a different character model, so the idea is that Trypticon was renamed when he was rebuilt in Five Faces of Darkness.
    - The "heart" at the end is the Zodiac, which would indeed eventually revive Optimus as Star Convoy.

    Sky reign beast mode is amazing. Can't believe nobody has done that yet. Optimus Maximus riding him is the icing on top.

    I didn't understand why Prime dies at the end, was that connected to something I missed in an earlier chapter?

    Superb work, as always, Jalaguy!
    I can just roughly translate the text, but you really bring it to life. And the lettering work is fantastic too.

    If you read the earlier chapters of the comic, Vector Sigma actually uses what power it has to temporarily revive Optimus. Optimus Maximus was living on borrowed time from the start.

    Gotcha thanks - because this story takes place post Headmasters (where Convoy died again IIRC) and pre-rebirth as Star Convoy as far as JG1 continuity is concerned, correct?
