Binaltech Ginrai and BTA Black Convoy meets Melissa? Both toys share the Dodge Ram alt-mode, and Ginrai is clearly the BT version of the forthcoming Alternators Optimus Prime, BTA Black Convoy being the typical Takara black repaint of Prime.
However it is rather curious that Prime is named Ginrai in the Binatech line and not Convoy. Ginrai was the name used for the Powermaster Optimus Prime moulds (with the extra Apex Armour AKA God Bomber) use in Japan as part of the Super God Masterforce series. Ginrai was not a Prime or Convoy at all although there was an obvious likeness.
