Black Primes have been with us for nearly a decade. It's been explained in older fiction as well. It was Nucleon Quest armor then. I collect Black Prime/Primal/Convoy figures so I was happy to see this. You obviously don't. Complaining about it does nothing to change the fact that this isn't going to be the last Black repaint we ever see. Oh and Shattered Glass Megatron is an Autobot in spirit if not name.

This is the exact same release as the one prior, only it's via a different outlet and comes with the comic. The metal name plate is included.

But, the story itself still doesn't make any sense.

About the English names, the Japanese still spells out "Convoy" for Optimus. Also, Japanese is a difficult language to properly translate in a timely fashion. The Japanese were never experts in that to begin with.

First off, that's not Optimus Prime. Nor is it Nemesis Prime. It's an Eldedroid that is being controlled by a human named "Dan". And just who do we know of in the TFG1 cartoon fiction hat has that name? None other than Daniel Witwicky. Daniel slaggin' Witwicky! Though, given the time period at which this comic takes place, he would have to be at least in his 30's by now.
The presense of Ironhide and the Constructicons are a bit puzzling, give nthat Ironhide died in the G1 movie and the Constructicons (as Devastator) were destroyed in the Zone episode. However, Ironhide did show up in the Headmasters TV series, so this kind of odd occurance has happened before.
Megatron being is his G1 body is also questionable. He was last seen retreating into space in his G2 Hero tank body. Guess he liked his old form so much he rebuilt himself into it?
Also, given that this is the Japanese cartoon continuity, I'd say that that Diver instead of Wavereider who's partnered up with Splashdown (who himself might be there just for kicks, I guess).
