Takara Tomy Announces New 35th Anniversary Convoy and Optimus Prime Set!
Celebrate the old with the new in this new Japan exclusive pair of repaints!
Via a listing on their Takara Tomy Mall website, Japanese Transformers manufacturer Takara Tomy has announced the “Transformers 35th Anniversary Convoy and Optimus Prime Set”! The set contains a reissue of the classic, G1 Optimus Prime toy (or Convoy as he was known in Japan) alongside a new, heavily G1 inspired redeco of the Studio Series Bumblebee movie Optimus Prime toy! Both toys seem to be packaged in retro, G1 inspired window boxes. Much like the recent Wal-Mart reissue, G1 Optimus lacks his trailer.
The set is priced at 10,800 yen, which rounds out to roughly ~$100 USD, and is due out around December of 2019. The listing implies availability will be limited though, so make sure to get your preorders in fast!
You can check out more images of the figures below or at the Takara Tomy Mall website. And you can share your thoughts on these toys on the Allspark forums, Discord, or Facebook!
