Is this the "My name's Optimus Prime, and this generation I will mainly be a fire truck" type toy? Are toys based on Armada coming out over here yet, don't they have more of a combining element? It does seem like the rebirth is proceeding rapidly. The new Dreamwave comics are superbly illustrated, if you can get hold of them - there's a collected version of the Generation 1 comics coming out in November in the States. Well worth having a look at their site:http://www.dreamwaveprod.ca/!thesite/ma ... home.shtml

I bought the Japanese version of this toy a few years back when it was part of the Transformers 2000 car robots range and known as Super Fire Convoy. It's actually one of the better new transformers as it looks great in all 3 modes. The Robots In Disguise range is a real return to form but beware it goes down hill again with the Armarda range.

That show was some dozen versions later after the first Transformers show. In the original show, long before computer animation, Optimus was an 18-wheeler "big rig" truck.

Heh. Close. That was "Optimus Primal" or "Optimal Optimus" and probably a few others just for good measure! The show was Beast Wars, and did actually feature the original G1 incarnation of Optimus Prime at one point. I don't know, the youth of today, not knowing who Optimus Prime is!
