For a while now, a thread has gone undetected in our Toys Forum, the thread contained images of what seemed to be a prototype of a Matrix of Leadership for Generation 1 Optimus Prime. When new pictures of it along with other accessories showed up, it was speculated to be a new set from BTSToys, the people behind the BTS Mobile command base (aka. Classics Prime trailer).

Now due to a pre-order listing on site sponsor BigBadToyStore.com this speculation has been proven true. BBTS's price for this set is currently set at USD 19.99 and the set contains the following:
-Matrix with seating
-New articulated hands to hold matrix
-Energon axe
-Jetpack which can hold all accessories
-Ion Blaster

This is creative but Hybrid Convoy can do all of these things and more.

This is great that they did it. There are many Convoy collectors out there that this is going to be great for, I'm just not one of them. I've almost rounded out my full Megatron collection & closing in on my Screamer collection. Only have about 8 Convoys and G1 is not one of them, to be honest I don't even plan on getting one(i've got a floppy, broken G2 that' i've had for years that I gave to my son who loves it, somebody warn me if it has lead paint because I didn't bother checking.) In place of a G1 Convoy in my collection I was going to do a Hybrid style & a WST(they both look close enough and are much better to me.) But kudos to these guys.

Wow, that's a good price! I might just do this. I'd like to see pics of the jetpack on him, tho. I'd prob sell the axe, no interest. Might be able to mod the hands to separate some of the fingers.

I will pass.

Don't really care for the hands, I'd never use the Axe (haven't in any Prime that has included one so far), don't like the Jetpack, and I already have the New Years Edition Convoy which includes a Matrix.

Which company is involved in this? I am so getting one. It would be cool if it is also compatible with Sideswipe.

It's definitely a nice accessory. If the jet pack can be mounted onto Prime robot mode, then I'll order one. Otherwise I'll pass because I have the Matrix from the NYear version. The axe, nice to have one. The hands, from one angle, look kind of strange.

Interesting. And one of those that you'd never think of to do, either.

Nice. I might buy this, since I don't have the G2 reissue Prime's hands or weapon.
