That would be a little strange to reference not being directly tied to Transformers, but it does fit the whole blue knight scheme. Maybe they'll do a dual homage and make a blue Classics Megatron with Legends Godbomber's sword?

So is Rollermaster actually a Straxus clone like the one that broke the sword then? Seems Straxus didn't actually survive the events of the Marvel comics entirely after all and both Rollermaster and United Straxus from Metrowars are clones. Is the third guy a clone as well?

Unless this isn't the cartoon continuity. It could be, but there's always the possibility that it isn't.

We'll just have to wait and see what an English translation says.

Remember, the author seems to be a Microman lover as he referenced an unreleased Microman toy in the previous Magna Convoy comic.

This sounds like my kind of continuity!
TFs and Microman, living together?! I love it! :x

YE HAAAAAAAW!

You may know some TF molds were used for the LED Powers line, right? ;)

At any rate, the "MC11" is nothing more than a sly nod to Microman, but in fiction it looks like it's nothing more than a code for Magna Convoy, in the same vein as "C-6" for Convobat and "D-6" for Megalligator. In other words, he may be another clone!

Initially I wondered if the MC stood for Magna Convoy, but then what would the 11 be?

But thinking about it and thinking about the mold...

1. Classics Optimus Prime
2. Henkei! Henkei! Convoy
3. Henkei! Henkei! Convoy Clear Version
4. Lucky Draw Convoy
5. Universe Nemesis Prime
6. United Black Optimus Prime
7. Platinum One Shall Stand, One Shall Fall Optimus Prime
8. Shattered Glass Optimus Prime
9. Age of Extinction Optimus Prime
10. Cloud Optimus Prime
11. Magna Convoy

Once you remove the two Ultra Magnususes and Knight Ginrai you're left with 11 Prime and Convoy variations no matter how rare some are.

Comic part 3 is GO!

Why hello there potential full-on Sentinel Prime repaint. That mold would look good in blue. Now who is he? Or is it just a new body for Convobat?

Also a cameo of Lucky Draw blue Big Convoy.

Also that box!

The Sentinel/Astrotrain redeco previously appeared in the Cybertron Convobat comic as Magna Convoy's ship.

Wow, I had to go back to the Convobat comic and almost missed it. It's so zoomed in on an awkward angle of the front of the shuttle it's hard to make out exactly what it is and the colors are different, but you're right. I feel like they were intentionally being obscure back then because they made it extremely obvious what the ship is in this comic. They even made the fists visible (though they colored one blue) as if they were ready to reveal something. Convobat's body was pretty badly damaged in the end so it wouldn't hurt to have a new one.

Damaged but not destroyed. I'd also like to point out that the epilogue of Convobat's comic leads directly to the end of Magna Convoy comic.

As for the identity of the Sentinel Prime/Astrotrain ship, I'd leave it as just a ship for now until we see a new Headmaster clone, maybe in the form of a Shuffler redeco ;)

Shuffler with partner vehicle plus the Sentinel/Astro body would make for a very fun update for Big Convoy if they were ever able to revive him. Maybe his spark is in the sword?

Thanks to fellow Seibertronian Emerje, we have the third page of the comic that currently accompanies the pre-order campaign for the e-Hobby shop exclusive Takara Tomy Transformers LG-EX Magna Convoy - the blue redeco of the Classics Optimus Prime mold. Check it out below in Japanese, along with a nice look at the packaging and its box art!

So I decided to order Magna Convoy via proxy direct from e-Hobby. If everything goes smoothly I'll post a guide on how to do it. Right now I'm at 8,100JPY (US$71) after tax and shipping to the proxy service. Hardest part was trying to make sure I got the address right. Shipping and proxy fee is estimated at about $15 if the weight at BBTS is accurate so that's US$86 total if all goes well. Great price compared to US$95 plus shipping at HLJ or US$110 plus shipping at the usual importers.

We'll see what happens in May.

Maybe I should do a test run with Cloud Shockwave... :-?

(edit) There's a payment hold from e-Hobby for $70.93 on my bank account so that's one hurdle. :)

It's Magna Convoy's ship. It doesn't have Astrotrain's (or Sentinel Prime's) color scheme.

Something tells me Magna Convoy's ship will become an new character, or an already existant character

I remain amazed at how well this mold has held up. And we get him in Blue!!!

Definitely one for the Diaclone shelf.
