Obviously, a transformers collection is never complete without Optimus Prime. Without Optimus Prime surely, it is like chocolate cake without chocolate flavor. My next blogs will be about Optimus prime from the 2007 Transformers. Stay tuned.
Transformation from robot mode to truck mode is perfect but the proportion of the truck is not good. On top of that it has a lot of ugly gaps. The ugly truck mode will encourage THS02 owners to refrain from transforming into the truck mode.
The only fun factor for truck mode, is the trailer can be attached to convoy.
The trailer itself can be transformed into cargo box, command center/support weapon platform and maintainance bay for Convoy.
See the gaps ?
Very bad proportioned
Trailer transformed into the command center or support heavy weapon
Convoy cooling off at repair bay
Packs of tonnes of accessories and gimmick. Small and compact but highly pose able. Greatdetails at robot mode. Sadly poorly executed truck mode. On top of that not recommended for toddlers & big hands. Great for collectors which wants to expand Convoy collections.
Convoy in action :
Though Convoy is represented as a less than 15 cm midget, it does not lack of details & articulation. Convoy has 14 points of articulation which make it capable of multiple posing. In term of material used, Convoy contains some diecast in its chest & legs.

With Jet-pack attached
Energon Axe attached… activated
Not forgetting, this mini Convoy has the mini Matrix. The matrix is small but it can be used to pose Convoy releasing the Matrix energy.
The item included with this toy package is manual, collector's card, 3 pair of extra hand, an energon axe, a blaster, trailer, custom base, mini roller, jet pack & convoy.
Although, the manual is written in japanese, transfroming convoy will not be a problem for the instruction manual is clearly illustrated.

Convoy, the first Cybertrons commander introduced in Transformers. A symbol of all good & virtue. Perhaps one of the ageless icon in the transformers series. Now it is again immortalized in the TakaraTomy toyline THS.

Yet again, the Japanese toys makers had made Convoy, ultra-small and surprisingly alot of details. This toy comes with alot of accessories & gimmicks. A vast improvement compared to the T.H.S.-01.
A look into the contents.
Like most premium toy package, this toy has a viewable windows to show the contents. A first looks the contents looks stunning.
