I pretty much hate custom Transformer toys. Once you add paint or cut a piece, the toy’s original value becomes essentially nill in my eyes. I find the simple ball joint replacement mods like the Kup head a little more digestible. Let’s not worry about my Transformers politics for a moment though and bask in the beauty of this killer custom Convoy!
The beauty of this custom is the throwback to a very little-known era of Transformers: the Pre-transformer era. This is paying homage to the beautifully unicorn-esque blue Convoy cab that was set into the original mold of what would become Ultra Magnus armor. Maybe I am enthralled because I have been trying to attain a nice blue Optimus cab for many years. I just respect the recognition of the source of the Transformers brand. Know your roots, Collecticons!
