Q Transformers Optimus Prime / Convoy

I spotted this on Amazon with a ridiculous preorder price, but bought it from a department store last week shortly after it was released for a far more reasonable price. I found the truck mode to be quite cute.

While the English name on the label says Optimus Prime, the Japanese name is Convoy instead, differentiating it from the previous GT-R Optimus Prime which said the same thing both in English and Japanese.

Like the other toys in the line it rolls freely on 4 wheels.

Due to its shape it appears to have a lot of hollow spaces.

Transformation is nearly identical to the other toys. Start by splitting and swinging the container forward.

Rotate the container bits to form the arms. Swing the feet downwards.

The truck bed is a nice touch of detail.

Folding it into the body flips the head up at the same time.

It looks really blocky in robot mode.

I guess there isn’t much to say. Just loads of vehicle approximating a robot shape.

It lacks elbow joints compared to the other cars but otherwise has the same (lack of) articulation.

Here’s a side by side comparison with GT-R Optimus Prime. Truck Prime has a lighter shade of red.

Truck Prime’s head looks more like its G1 counterpart.

Megatron has also been rendered in this line except with a Lamborghini Veneno alt mode.
