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.

is this the retirement figure for this mold? It's had a long run. Still got my original. Also by looking at that comic I'm glad I got Straxus (or Darkmount, whatever) again. Despite some flaws with the figrue (and it's small size for a character often portrayed as being pretty chunky) I do like it and it was super cheap.

I'd like to see this go with the Powered Convoy colored City Commander trailer.

I don't know what it is, but the 2006 Classics Voyager Optimus Prime mold is just timeless. It's been in use for almost 11 years now, and every time a new repaint comes out, I wanna snatch it up. It's a very satisfying figure, even though it's got some flaws, even though engineering has improved greatly since then, and even though Hasbro and Takara Tomy could probably do a much better definite "Classics/Neo-G1" Optimus Prime mold now, something about this 2006 mold will always hold a special charm for me.

Magna Convoy really rocks the mold with that beautiful blue deco too. Blue is my favorite color, so yeah, there's no way I can pass on this. You win again, e-Hobby!

Easy to miss, in the earliest images they appeared to be using silver paint, the chrome didn't come until later.

I really love how vibrant the colors look in the new photos. Can't wait for this to come out!

Yeah it's still a fun mold if a bit clunky and the original has been my G1 Prime since I got it for christmas 2006 (the only time in my adult life I ever received a Transformer as a christmas present) and I pose it with the recent Titans Megatron. I don't need loads of redecoes of it myself. Did have the all white 'Ultra Magnus' and Skywarp double pack for a while but sold that within a few months. Anyways sounds like this figure is ideal for you so enjoy. :)

Fellow Seibertronian Emerje has contacted us with some news regarding the e-Hobby exclusive Transformers figure Magna Convoy - specifically, the slight delay in its release, initially planned for this month (May), and now moved to early June as the listing also shows. While this is indeed very little difference, we appreciate the confirmation!

Emerje wrote:e-Hobby announced in today's newsletter that Magna Convoy has been delayed for "various circumstances" from late May (believed to be today) to a more specific June 5. The product page has been updated with the new date.

I want to "complete" my convobat, but I'm not sure to want to buy the complete figure only for the claw weapon.
I wonder if people who get him will accept to resell the weapon.

I've read from people who got Botcon Ginrai that they probably should have stopped even before.

Yeah, this mold has gotten more redecos than a CW toy. Still, it's a great mold! The Henkei version is on my wishlist, along with a matching Megs... :PRAY:
