Till All Are One with the Dark Side

After surviving the bombardments of comrade mGlacius and Crimotaku‘s joint military exercise, I’ve finally surrendered my will and grabbed myself the one true holy crown of my childhood yume, a Transformers Masterpiece Convoy (Optimus Prime to the West) Black ver. by Takara Tomy!

MP Convoy Black is actually a limited release of the very same mould used on the 1st MP Convoy (In its original red-blue colour scheme) from half a decade ago, with the Japanese version bundled with an e-Hobby exclusive comic book while the Hong Kong version bundled with a die-cast name plate…

The one I got is actually from eBay with a fraction of its original price sans any of the extras mentioned… Quite a bargain I say as it only costs me about 7,991 (LOL The number of my previous car licence plate… Coincidence? ^^;) yen including shipping as contrast to its original price which is about 12,000 yen!!! :Dc


Obligatory box shots… The first thing I noticed when I pick up this beast is the very heaviness of the danbooru! Didn’t expect it to be this solid in weight! ^^;

The front side features Convoy Black as the centre attraction (Obviously!) with his vehicle mode by his calves in a simple design while the back is littered with various information and features you can expect from those standard figurine packaging design…




A smaller image of Convoy Black and warning labels, legal stuffs and such are printed on the top and bottom portion of the danbooru respectively…
