Star Convoy is a great use of the POTP Optimus Prime mold that unfortunately is showing its age. The legs on Convoy have a tendency to pop off while the combined Star Convoy has weak ankle joints except for the pivot which is extremely helpful holding the figure upright and distributing the weight. The overall look is fantastic but maybe wait for a sale to pick this figure up.

Just in from fellow Seibertronian Chuckdawg1999 is a video review for Transformers Generations Selects Star Convoy! I'll let Chuck do the talking:
"Star Convoy is a great use of the POTP Optimus Prime mold that unfortunately is showing its age. The legs on Convoy have a tendency to pop off while the combined Star Convoy has weak ankle joints except for the pivot which is extremely helpful holding the figure upright and distributing the weight. The overall look is fantastic but maybe wait for a sale to pick this figure up."

What do you think? Let Chuck know in the forums and as always stay tuned to Seibertron for the ultimate in Transformers news!

I wonder how many people saw Earthrise Optimus & then cancelled their order for this one?

Thanks Chuck, I was really thinking the same thing about this figure, waiting for the sale, and you helped make my mind up.

Definitely thought he was overpriced. Was sad that they didn't fix the legs hanging off the back, the ankles, etc. I'm glad I have him, but dang... and getting that gold crest under the chest clearance makes me nervous. They could've redesigned the outside of the trailer too for the price this thing is... He looks great in both robot modes though once you have him there, but it's a mixed bag of angry cats.
