Naturally, Black Convoy looks the coolest of the three.

And I thought ordinary pens were uncomfortable to write with after an hour or so... This thing must be torture after ten minutes. Would anyone actually use this for writing?

I think they missed an opportunity here to make their ink colors different. They should have had black, blue and red ink respectively.

Now that you mention it, this sorta' reminds me of that expensive, transforming, metal Optimus Prime ring from about 10 years ago that no one could actually wear as a ring. Except, of course, that this Op looks awesome in robot mode.

And now a Magnus repaint...think Fansproject will create some upgrade armor for him that turns into a stapler?

It looks to me like the actual writing part might be in the gun, with part of the barrel being a cap. Not like that's much better, but it's an option at least.

Wait, when did they make that? And is it an official product, or a custom/scratchbuilt?

I've seen a couple rings that look like his head, never seen or heard about a transforming ring.

Yeah. I googled "Optimus Prime ring", and that was all I saw.

What? Never heard of that, got any pics or something? Sounds kinda cool.

This pen thing is amazing, and I'll likely get it in traditional Optimus colours from HLJ, still expensive, but pretty cool.

These are cool, and I like the weird versions of TFs from time to time ... but these things are around $50 each!

I'd buy one of these in a heartbeat, but over the last year or so, the prices of 3rd party products have reached a ridiculous level.

It was something BBTS had up for preorder a long time ago, probably before the first Bay movie, but just now I got the same results Metro Prime and Midnight Fox saw, so I can't find any evidence of it, even on TFWiki.

It looked pewter, consisted mainly of the truck cab front, and you could flip his head and possibly arms out, so it was almost a mini-bust you could wear on your finger. The listing even said it was too bulky to easily wear, and was likely intended as more of a display piece. It was also triple-digit priced, so it may have died before release. I doubt BBTS archives listings for stuff that came and went almost a decade ago, but asking them might be the only way to find a pic. For tonight though, looking through all those not-even-close google results has given me a headache...

Remember those Optimus Prime/Convoy styled transforming pens, produced under license from Takara Tomy by Sentinel? Thanks to a tip from fellow Seibertronian Autobot Genocide, we get a look at a video review of the main Optimus Prime version from YouTuber peaugh, embedded below

I want one so much! That thing is awesome. Love the robot mode and the pen mode actually looks pretty useable (at least compared to the Energon Prime pen I have...)

that figure looks awesome :ic$: =P~ i wonder if there will be more figures in the line. for prime if some parts were rearranged and small tires were added it it would be doable as a G1 prime figure that converts from Robot to freight-liner to a functional pen. ink refills sold separately
