Guy Finds Treasure of the Century at Thrift Store
Technically speaking, this would be the treasure from the previous century. As Marc Orbito has posted in the Transformers facebook group Cybertron Cafe. What did he find? The cab portion to an original Diaclone Powered Convoy aka Ultra Magnus. In this case the Diaclone Powered Convoy’s cab is the same as Ultra Magnus and Optimus Prime but is blue in color. As it is not a public group I’m unable to share the post here but here’s a screen shot
Now, to be fair – people post ‘joke finds’ all the time, generally very obviously staged. In this case though he’s clearly still in the store and as a fellow Powered Convoy owner not even a prankster would take this item and carry it around willy-nilly to make a joke like this.
I’ll leave up to you, the reader, to decide if this is indeed a legit find – but either way it’s a legit Powered Convoy, not a knock off and not a fake, and it’s in excellent shape. Mine, as you can see below, has seen many more battles to be sure.
