"Following PRETENDER CONVOY on a mission to Earth, MINERVA joins TICKER and UNCLE WHISKEY BREATH against (secret character) in their BATTLE FOR BREW CITY. Will the RETURN OF CONVOY be enough to turn the tide of battle?"


Pretender Convoy is the "Lucky Draw Raffle Item" in the 'Return of Convoy' assortment for Dairycon 2010. As such, the *ONLY* way to get your hands on Pretender Convoy is to win him in one of the raffles! Further investigation reveals a detailed bio on the site, indicating that Pretender Convoy is the 'Dairycon Supreme Commander'!
Want a little more backstory on Pretender Convoy? Check out the first part of the "Return of Convoy" fanfic that has been posted for your reading pleasure!

One final tidbit: "If you think the shell is inspired, wait until you see the inner robot."




This information follows on the recent reveal of the 'Battle for Brew City' assortment, which contained Ticker and Uncle Whiskey Breath, and the earlier reveal of the 'Return of Convoy' assortment, which contained another memorable character in the form of Minerva! So that's at least two assortments, and at least *five* characters that we know about so far! Plus the 10th Anniversary book!

BATTLE FOR BREW CITY assortment:
-Ticker (regular Raffle item)
-Uncle Whiskey Breath (regular Raffle item)

RETURN OF CONVOY assortment:
-Minerva (PreReg exclusive)
-Pretender Convoy (LuckyDraw Exclusive)

DAIRYCON: 10 YEARS (hardcover book)
-History of Dairycon's 10 Years -The Ultimate Guide!


All that and we still have more to come in the way of a Limited Raffle Item, Commander Class Accessory Packs, and the Inner Bot to the Pretender Shell revealed today!

I say a bit of both.

No...I take that back. Reynolds stole Cullen's hat...

Pretty cool though. Wish I could get this.

OMFG. You know TF fans have gone too far when they make action figs that resemble the voice actors who voiced them. :lol: Still is a cool looking figure, no doubt I expect Cullen to receive one soon.

Anyone know which Pretender figure the mold was based on?

I was looking through galleries and couldn't find it.
Re: Dairycon 2010 Lucky Draw: Pretender Convoy! (1050697)

It's based on the Pretender Bumblebee shell.

I'll be lucky if I get one! ROFLMAO

Only a couple of these get made since they are "Lucky Draw". I'm just glad I won Pretender Motormaster and Toiletbot last year, lol.

Fender, if you win the entire set again, I'm crying foul, finding a MISB ROTF Bludgeon, and bashing your skull in with him... :D :grin: :P
I am *still* envious of you winning those buggers... =P~

Just registered last night, we will be there. Saw the SPOT custom, NICE. Did that Armorhide fig fit in the Motormaster shell? Or was something else inside?

I believe that the "Armorhide" figure fit within the Pretender shell, but cannot tell you that with 100% certainty. I have asked Fender Bender to answer that question for you Optimus.

-A little off topic, and I don't know if you recall this; but I used to chat with you a little over on Facebook a few years back. I was curious to know if Teletran-1 was up and running.
Also, if you're up for it, I might recommend bringing your custom Slayer RID Prime figure for the Art Contest! -Even if you didn't bring it to enter into the contest, I'd love to see it! It's a really memorable custom!

INDEED IT DOES! :D It doesn't fit perfectly in robot or vehicle mode, but with a partial transformation (extending the legs from vehicle mode) does make the figure fit inside. Glad to hear that you're coming Optimus! :D
