It looks like this manga is continuing what was started in the e-HOBBY Magna Convoy manga in which Bludgeon was watching monitors that showed "The warriors who have inherited the Seven Lights divided from "The One"," and with this we see those seven groups each led by a Convoy or a Prime (the text uses either name for certain ones) and each possessing the White Matrix, the Green Matrix, the Red Matrix, the Yellow Matrix, the Black Matrix/Black Legendisc, the Purple Matrix, and the Silver Matrix of the Blue Corps.


Another thing of note is that it looks like this manga has officially retconned TFTM by claiming that Unicron specifically used Angolmois Energy to upgrade Megatron and his fallen troops into Galvatron and Friends. This... actually isn't quite a new idea since, back in Beast Wars II, when Megastorm was upgraded into Gigastorm via Angolmois Energy, the same grid-based visual effect that accompanied Megatron's upgrade into Galvatron during the movie was also used for Megastorm's upgrade. This comic is just streamlining the similarities of those two events by making them both having used the same energy.

Btw judging at the thematic of each pic, I'd say 'Yellow Convoy' (the RiD2001 recolor) is female, as we have a precedent for that deco being a female Optimus Prime. As it happen, the two bots of her team in the back are also female. Seems like it all ties together.

I'm guessing that those Straxus-es are responsible for making the Blues go crazy at the start there, considering they abscond with Megatron?

So these new Lantern Prime Corps here consist of:
- Green Lantern Convoy (Beast Tracker OP from Prime Beast Hunters): A small army of just Bulkheads
- White Lantern Convoy (Combiner Wars Battle Core OP): Police-affiliated white characters/repaints (Prowls, Checkpoint, Protectobots, etc.)
- Atrocitus Red Convoy (Titans Return Sentinel): Prime repaints that were still red (Cybertronian Knight Ginrai, etc.)
- Sinestro Yellow Convoy (Universe RiD OP/"Shotimus" Prime): Yellow female characters (Trickdiamond, Blackarachnia, Animated Elita, Misha from Energon)
- Black Lantern Convoy (Go Prime, I'm assuming based on his prevalence in the shots): Deadlock and various Nemesis Primes
- Indigo 1 Convoy (Shattered Glass Prime, I think based off the Masterpiece?): Shockwaves and Pretenders (including Meltdown's Pretender-based test subjects from Animated)

...and now Hardshell's crew stole all their Macguffins (except the Blue, Silver, and Indigo Matrixes, which I assume Megatron has/is retrieving, unless Star Convoy/Optimus still has the Blue Matrix?) and is there to...fight Primus? Cause mindless wanton destruction? Claim whatever Matrix Optimus maybe still has? Pose in the sky there for 20 minutes? Does anyone know?

(No I couldn't resist with the Green Lantern comparisons, thanks for asking)

So, let's see...

  • White Matrix = Matrix Saber from Arms Master Optimus of the Japanese Prime toyline
  • Green Matrix = Creation Matrix from Galvatron II, the e-HOBBY G1 mold reissue
  • Red Matrix = the foldable version of the Energon Matrix that came with Encore Big Convoy (Matrix Buster Ver.)
  • Yellow Matrix = POTP Predaking's Onyx Matrix, plus Golden Lagoon Starscream's yellow POTP combiner hand
  • Black Matrix/Black Legendisc = Generations Fall of Cybertron Ravage in Data Disc mode
  • Purple Matrix = not seen but is presumably the one that SG MP-10 comes with; unless... unless the Gari Robo-kun grape popsicle is it
  • Blue Matrix = Blue Big Convoy's Alpha Matrix
  • Silver Matrix = the one that comes with Star Convoy

English summary of the first chapter:
With the theft of the Blue Matrix, Primus alerts the other colored Orders of the Primus Vanguard to defend their respective Matrices from Megatron Omega, for if he gets all seven, all is lost for this universe...

On the Blue Planet, the Blue Order is torn asunder, its members driven to attack each other by the program secretly implanted into them by one of the group's Straxuses. Blue realizes the betrayal, and the other Straxus—Director Straxus—mocks him and explains that the previous commander, Brightes, shouldn't have passed him over for Supreme Commander in favor of Blue. Refusing to dirty his hands by harming his comrades, Blue stabs himself with the Matrix Sword, but the amused Straxus just takes it and offers his services to Megatron Omega so that the other Orders and Primus's ambitions can be destroyed.

Left behind, Turtler moans about his inability to stand up to the villains, but is bemused when the planet's native Beast People thank him for saving them. Primus explains to Star Convoy that, while the members of the Blue Order have perished, their sparks will be stored in his Ark and pass on to the next incarnation of the universe, which is why he led Galvatron to this universe (although Blue's spark is mysteriously absent). Turtler alerts Star Convoy to a more immediate mystery: the absence of Halfshell from the crashed photon sailer...

At the White Planet,White Gallant Convoy is alerted to an invading turtle—Halfshell! The Seacon is here for his White Matrix! The Green Planet faces a similar invasion as Sea Phantom seeks to take the Green Matrix from Green Tender Convoy.


And the second chapter:
The Seacons continue their attacks on the various planets of the Primus Vanguard's colored Orders. At the Red Planet, Red Sentinel Prime attempts to fell Terrormander with his Red Matrix-powered Matrix Buster, but it's of no use. Scylla makes landing at the Yellow Planet, where she introduces herself to the other girls and uses her Angolmois Kiss of Death to take the Yellow Matrix from Yellow Splendid Convoy. The Black Planet is defended by Deadlock, who has been studying under Black Go Prime to become a Swordbot. Black recognizes his foe, Coelagon, from his time in the Seacon's world. Coelagon explains that he's here for the Black Matrix, also known as the time-controlling Black Legendisc.

There aren't enough Seacons to go around, though, and the Purple Planet stays uninvaded. They still have visitors in the form of the Straxuses and Ultra Megatron Omega, so Purple Wicked Convoy proposes that they combine the power of the Purple, Blue, and Silver Matrices to defeat all of their enemies and take over the universe.

On the Blue Planet, Primus is alerted to the Seacons' attacks on the Warriors of Lights. A Beast Person explains to a confused Star Convoy that all of the Warriors are robots who defend life throughout the universe as part of the Primus Vanguard. The Beast introduces herself as Lune and also amusingly explains that "Convoy" means the same thing as "Supreme Commander" here. Star Convoy recognizes one of the Seacons as Halfshell, and Primus explains that he's been changed by the god-rivaling power of Angolmois Energy, which can allow one to change their or others' form and even resurrect the dead. This revelation is cue for Primacron to barge in and berate Primus for using his creation, bringing it from the future and having it proliferate in this universe. Primacron wants to know just what Primus, or, rather, the Oracle is planning...

There's not much time to talk, as the Seacons arrive with all of the different Matrices and combine into the mighty God Neptune! With the Power of Stars, God Neptune seeks to make his creation just as somebody else wishes...
