Takara Tomy Posts New Online Manga for Selects Star Convoy

A new two page online manga has been posted to Takara Tomy Mall featuring Generations Selects Star Convoy. The manga appears to explain Convoy's evolution into Star Convoy. It also features Galvatron, probably not a coincidence that one of the teased silhouettes we were shown used the Titans Return/Legends Galvatron mold (believed to be Super Megatron). The manga features a battle between Star Convoy and an invading force of Dark Nova's Novaroids. Note that this story takes place in 2011 while the events of Battlestars takes place sometime after 2026.

Um... are those fingers made out of Unicron's horns? And are those mini Unicrons surrounding Earth? Seriously, somebody tell me. Only Kanji I know is Gojira.

I posted this a couple of days ago in the Selects thread:

But no one seemed to notice that I even posted it (staff or normal users). :D

I would have noticed, Randy, but for some reason I stopped receiving email notifications for that thread, and only just now realized that I was two whole pages behind in catching up with it. :oops:

Anyway, for something like this to get news'd, it's best to copy a post's URL, click the "Submit News" button in the News drop-down menu found in the bar at the top of the page, and then paste the post's URL into the text box of the Contact Seibertron.com page, along with providing your name, email, and a written Subject for the message. ;)^

Anyway, here's a full English translation of the comic, courtesy of Allspark.com user Creedence:

In the year 2011, the battling Chief Convoy and Galvatron were called into another dimension by a mysterious existence!

Galvatron: Wha? So have Convoy and I died!?

Thus the two were shown the future they were destined for!

Convoy: Ah...

Galvatron: Enough play! I'll kill you first!

Convoy: Wait, Galvatron! Maybe this being is...

Primus: Children of the stars... the world is now in crisis...

Galvatron: What is this!?

Convoy: The Earth!

Primus: Bring back the proper history with the power of the Silver Matrix!

Convoy: Ah... I feel it! The "Power of Stars"!

Convoy: Transform! Is this a vision of the future... a prototype, in another words?!

By the light of the Silver Matrix carrying the power of universal creation

Convoy's body was upgraded!


Galvatron: Convoy, you fool! He said you will die in the future!

Behold! This form is the new Star Warrior, Star Convoy!

Star Convoy: You do not understand, Galvatron!

Star Convoy: Silver Matrix Combine!

Star Convoy: Matrix Weapon, Big Bang Cannon!

Star Convoy: Even if this body will be sacrificed in the future, let it! If I am to die with a shining star on my chest, I think I will be proud of it.

Star Convoy: That is the Cybertron soul!

Star Convoy: The light is extinguished... did you leave for another world? Thank you... Primus.

Thus, the world's crisis was ended... but...

Galvatron: I see now! The deaths the future will bring! Everything is my destiny and also that power of stars.

Galvatron: I, Galvatron, have this!


Note: The narration line of "Behold! This form is the new Star Warrior, Star Convoy!" has been slightly edited by myself to read a bit better, as the original translation of it read as "Look! This figure is the new Star Warrior, Star Convoy!"

Also, the "Cybertron soul" bit refers to that of the Autobot faction, not Planet Cybertron.

The glowing yellow head is Primus, based on the design of the G1 Rodimus Prime toy's head, in reference to the old Lucky Draw Primus toy that was a chrome redeco of the Rodimus Prime toy.

With this taking place in 2011, it comes before The Headmasters cartoon, as the viewscreens at top of the first page show Optimus and Galvatron each witnessing their respective final deaths in that show.

Sorry about that! I thought I had seen it in the comic forum before, but couldn't find it and thought maybe I really only saw it in the inbox. Though Cyberpath actually emailed it to us about the same time you posted it, it just took a while before one of us were available to news it.

And I'm glad we have a translation. It's pretty much what I thought it was about, but for the life of my I couldn't figure what the floating gold head was. :lol:
