The green on the cab is pretty damn nice but im not liking the army camo on the trailer. Oh, also ... $90 US dollars for this? :BANG_HEAD: This is an easy pass.... generations/rts and dotm still have loads of gaps to fill...

And what's that symbol on his shoulder, the BAPE logo?

And I guess this green's not bright enough, but everyone here's seen that Dreamwave Optimus pic that someone photoshopped to turn him into a Green Lantern, right?

This thing is giving flashbacks to this conversation. :P

This Optimus is naturally green instead of naturally red, just like I was trying to get at. ;)

Rambo Convoy. Very cool. $90 for a store exclusive doesn't seem too bad. Heck Encore Convoy was retailing for $80 and it was general release.

Might just try to pick this up to add the the G1 Convoy line up now.

I'm all about crazy repaint exclusives, so this pretty cool. Sit him next to the EXILE PERFECT YEAR Convoy from Music Label, and you're all set for Christmas!

Precisely. Slap a GL logo over... whatever is on his shoulder, then imagine Peter Cullen reciting the oath. "In brightest day..."

Robot doesn't look great in green, but the camo on the trailer and the new stickers look cool. Not something I would buy though.

It's almost the G.I. Joe Convoy that I've always wanted. Not too light a green as that one 3rd party thing was. Still, $90 is a little past my price range right now.

Wow, I like the trailer a lot but man I have no interest in this, unless there was a G1 Megatron to go along with it.
