The Mindwipe shield is strange considering the top of the truck makes a better looking larger shield in the same way. Maybe it only works for the botcon version though. In that case I would've used that version. Maybe I'm biased though because I think that Mindwipe shield is one of the worst accessories we've ever gotten. I was going to just leave it in the package before I realized it forms the tail of the bat.

He knows that. He is talking about the old Magna Convoy who was made from Armada Prime.

"Magna Convoy" was the name of Armada Optimus when he was combined with Overload.

This toy's deco is a clear homage to Diaclone Powered Convoy's truck cab robot mode.

I know the name was the combined form that's why I said "made from"



The deco was an obvious homage to diaclone too.

I like it, it's neat, I'll buy it, but... I gotta say I'm let down. Using this old mold when there's a plethora of brand new Headmasters to choose from is just irritating. Especially when they could have EASILY followed the brilliant Convobat with a proper Megagator.

Huh I guess Takara knew we wouldn't buy Magna without a good reason to.


Then again I don't even use Mindwipe's tail in bat mode since it doesn't stay in due to it being loose.

Ok, just to clear up some confusion:

1) "Magna Convoy" is simply the combined name of "Convoy" and "Ultra Magnus". In this case, it fits, as it's an homage to the cab of Diaclone Powered Convoy, which was homaged earlier with "Ultra Magnus Movie Preview version" (missing the wheels in the chest plate and Powered Buggy). If Convobat is any indication, he's yet another clone of our beloved Prime.

2) The name was used before during Micron Legends, as the combined form of Convoy (Optimus Prime) and Ultra Magnus (Overload). The name itself appeared on the box of the Magna Convoy DX set, which included the "Final Battle" redeco (our Powerlinx redeco with a few changes), a translucent Ultra Magnus, and an X-Dimensions redeco of Bumble (Perceptor). The deco on Convoy wasn't really an homage to Powered Convoy btw.

With that out of the way...

Uhm... I was certain the original KO in blue would be the only way to get it, now eHobby does this? Just what state is the mold in anyway after the Platinum Edition? :shock:

And good call Sabrblade, on noticing the Mindwipe shield being meant for Convobat. I never noticed that particular accessory was missing from that release! :oops: How does the sword play in though?

Anyone check out his bio yet? Here it is auto-translated and pretty well actually (thanks, Google!).

Job title: Musketeers

When the universe was once a dark era, there was a blue corps to protect peace. They took evil with the blue sword, and the universe regained light again. But during the fight, the leader was killed by a betrayal of one of his friends, the blue sword "Matrix Sword" proof of the leader was robbed and the corps was destroyed. However, its blue will has not disappeared. Through tens of thousands of hours the will and power were entrusted to a new warrior. His name is "Magna Convoy". Originally a robot without intention created as a combat support robot, it is a new blue warrior who got a life with the last power of the leader although it was destroyed in the past battle and abandoned. The figure which wrapped herself with the blue metal nightium remained somewhere of the leader's side. His purpose is to recapture the deprived Matrix Sword and revenge on the traitor "Straxus".


So yeah, they're basically doing the Three Musketeers more or less. Corps being an army, not a dead body. So basically a corps of blue warriors was destroyed after their leader was killed by former friend Straxus and the leader's Matrix Sword was stolen. The will of this group was inherited by a low ranking soldier named Magna Convoy (this story's d'Artagnan I suppose) and now he's after Straxus to reclaim the Matrix Sword. I'm sure he'll team up with some remnants of the Musketeers along the way. I guess that makes Straxus Rochefort, so who gets to be the Cardinal?

BTW, eHobby is already saying this figure is sold out. :shock:

Eh, here's a much better translation:
Function: Musketeer

Once, when the universe was in an epoch of darkness, the Blue Corps defended the peace. With their blue swords banishing evil, the universe regained its light. However, in the middle of battle, one of them betrayed and killed their leader; the leader-marking blue sword, the Matrix Sword, was stolen and the Corps fell to ruin. But the Blue Will never disappeared. After some tens of thousands of hours, that will and power were entrusted to a new warrior. His name is Magna Convoy. Originally a combat support robot manufactured as a robot with no will of its own, he was abandoned after suffering heavy damage in a past battle, but the leader used the last remnants of his power to give life to a new blue warrior. The blue Knightium metal that covers Magna Convoy's body carries the vestiges of the leader. Magna Convoy's goal is to recover the stolen Matrix Sword and exact revenge on the traitor Straxus.
So he's basically the Diaclone mech turned into a Green Lantern.

Not the Prime recolor I wanted to see *cough*RIDScourgefromTRLaserPrime*cough* but this looks cool. Really loving that sword. The shield actually fits with those colors. Why it's this figure they chose is odd, but from what I've heard it's a great figure so it'd probably be fine to bring it back.

Well, I'm less than excited for this release than I thought I would be. Already own 2 versions of that mold, don't really need a 3rd one in blue. Though that would let me have that mold in Red, White and Blue...

JelZe GoldRabbit wrote:Ok, just to clear up some confusion:

Most recent version of that mold I own, is the Prime Evolution 2-pack version that came packaged with Age Of Extinction Evasion Mode Prime, and the only issues i have with it, is the looseness on his shoulders and the hinge on his back where the windvane plugs in. Both of which are still super tight on my original Ultra Magnus.

Don't know if that last use for Platinum with Megs had any other issues.

But, I'm guessing that mold still has some life in him. Maybe in a future Year of the X release no? :-D

Can they please let the Classics Optimus Prime mold rest at long last? It was OK for 2006, but with today's standards and styling, the mold needs to be put to bed finally. I thought we saw the last of it with this past year's Platinum Movie 30th Anniversary set with Megatron vs. Optimus Prime in odd colors, but apparently I was wrong!

The term is "Aoki Gundan", so it's just "Blue Corps", "Blue Army", "Blue Army Corps", etc.

Its nature as an intergalactic peacekeeping entity themed around magical color attributed to Willpower makes it a homage to the Green Lantern Corps., with Straxus turning traitor making him reference Sinestro.
