Daily Prime - Takara 01 Convoy Reissues Through The Years

MIP Monday breaks out the box for the many Takara (TOMY) Fight! Super Robot Lifeform Transformers (Generation 1) 01 Convoy (Optimus Prime) reissues from years past. The Missing Link C-01 Convoy is the newest and most up-to-date, but it is not the first reissue of the original classic colors figure mold in Japan.

2000 15th Anniversary 01 Convoy (middle right)
The first reissue was the 15th Anniversary 01 Convoy that was a straight reproduction of the 1985 Fight! Super Robot Lifeform Transformers 01 Convoy.

2002 New Years 01 Convoy (bottom right)
That was followed by the New Years 01 Convoy that was made with blue windows and eyes, and included both style ION blasters, cartoon colors Action Master figure, Die-Cast Matrix, stickers, and Autobots mouse pad.

2002 Transformers Collection #01 Convoy (bottom left)
That same year saw the start of the Transformers Collection book binder style figures with #0 Convoy. The package features the then new Dreamwave comics art on the box, Energon Axe weapon, and a binder to store all the other Collections figures info sheets.

2007 Encore 01 Convoy (top right)
The classic figure was reissued again as the 2007 Encore Transformers 01 Convoy that was a faithful copy of the original with the only change being tampo Autobot symbols instead of the customary stickers.

2024 Missing Link C-01 Convoy (top left)
The 40th Anniversary brings us the Missing Link C-01 Convoy that is arguably not the same as the classic 01 with the added articulation features. However, it is clearly a homage to the original and has been nicely modernized to keep on rolling out 40 years after the original Diaclone Powered Convoy was re-introduced as Optimus Prime.
