Missing Link C-01 Convoy Official Styrofoam Tray Images from Takara TOMY Transformers

Following the packages, we have another official update from Takara TOMY on their Transformers Missing Link series. Today we get a look at the styrofoam tray that is an updated version of the original 01 Convoy foam. Shown is the foam made to accommodate the alternate mode cab, accessories, and trailer. See the translated Takara update with images that follow.

Missing Link Information!

STYROFOAM TRAY

The packaging material is not a PET blister like the reprint version, but a styrofoam tray that imagines the time.

The image is a CAD drawing for development of C-01. C-02 also plans to adopt a new design of the styrofoam tray of those days.

No thanks. Especially for those prices. If they were half the price and this was about 22 years ago then maybe. 

And I don't understand the love this is seemingly getting. A very vocal and rather large part of the fanbase scoffed at this idea bout 17 years ago. They hated the thought of "G1 with articulation". Now it's here and people love it? I bet it's the same people who claim they love the G1 reissues and then never buy them. 

This is a waste. It's targeting a niche of a niche of a niche. About a tenth or less of what they expect to sell will actually sell and the rest will go on steep clearance. They'll push out the first four or five figures they worked on and the rest will be cancelled. I'll be very surprised if this isn't how it goes. I'm one to be negative in hopes that the opposite will happen but I really think that this sucks and will ultimately bomb just like what happened to that one third party company that did every color of G1 Bumblebee, Cliffjumper, Hubcap and Bumper as "G1 with articulation". 

This time, effort and materials should be going to more Takara Generations Selects redecos and retools. And to do a Masterpiece Airazor already. Maybe some Premium Edition decos that weren't outdone by the store exclusives that also weren't sold for an extra premium price. I do admit though that PE Siege Ultra Magnus and PE Siege Starscream look real good in hand. I think more highly of them though as I paid like half price for each. If I paid full price like I was going to do for UM then I would've been salty. That grey on Ultra Magnus' cab was worth the price as just using him as another character entirely.
