Fans have gotten their Transformers Missing Link C-01 and Missing Link C-02 Convoy / Optimus Prime figures recently. These are the newly made Generation 1 Optimus Prime toys which are truly the G1 toy with modern articulation, so a missing link between the past and present. These are not cheap so in case people are hesitant and want to know as much as possible, we have a video review below for you. This was done and sent to us by fellow Seibertronian Chuckdawg 1999. He goes through both releases, where one is more toy accurate while the other is anime accurate.

I applied a the licence plate sticker on the front bumper of the truck. Sure, it look a bit silly in bot mode, but it's all right. However, I changed my mind and I attempted to remove that sticker...
THE CHROME OF THE BUMPER CAME ALONG WITH IT.
So I had to reapply the sticker back on.

TlDr; be careful with the chrome. It's fragile.

Had blast with Missing Link over the weekend. my only real nitpick is the waist swivel. Seems like its got barely any range before the tires hit the bumper. He can't actually rotate as much as the box art suggests, unfortunately.

Also, can get any poses that look better with the one click ab-crunch.


The best "You got the Touch" pose I could get out of him.

They really should've included a stand and Hasbro needs to start selling the Transformers stands on Pulse.

Agreed. A stand would have been really nice to have with him.

The minions had this one on pre-order, and the reviews are encouraging - but I already have the G1 re-issue Prime, and even with the extra articulation, I couldn't bring myself to pay the monies they were asking for this figure. And between ER Prime, Kingdom Rodimus, Toxitron and Velocitron Scourge, I've got more trailers taking up shelf space than I can abide. If they sell a discounted figure-only version, that may get my interest....

The Anime version doesn't include the trailer.

They do. C-02 is just the figure, no trailer. It also has the non-chromed matrix and blue eyes instead of yellow.
The one in my pics is the trailer less version, like you I already have more trailers than space.
Includes theaformentioned Matrix, the Axe and his G1 (bloated style) rifle.

I pre-ordered ti from Amazon.co.jp (Japan). $65 bucks + $11 for shipping - $4 for price reduction after shipment, , ended up much much less than what Pulse was asking for him or even BBTS.

Did the same and saved on both. Better deals on Amazon Japan even with customs added to the final cost to ship. Helps that the Yen has fallen 10% in the last year too.

So true. Such a hit of nostalgia there to see the environmentally unfriendly styrofoam tray in there. It was like I was 8 at Christmas time all over again for a split second.

Being a fan of both Transformers and Power Rangers allowed that good feeling to persist all the way into the 2000s, since Bandai of America continued to use that styrofoam packaging for their Deluxe transforming Megazord toys as late as then. ;)

The episode that introduced Skyfire?

Got a timestamp? Because I have the impression that it's a "blink or you'll miss it" moment.
