Wonderfest Retrospective Part 12: 2006 G1 Convoy Chest Upgrade

Sitting in the corner of Wonderfest was a plucky young man selling his limited run of hand man upgrade chests for G1 Convoy aka G1 Optimus Prime. Sold in a clear box for 2500 yen
The upgrade was a piece that sat snuggly in the chest of your G1 Optimus Prime and acted as a case carry for a Matrix of Leadership piece (which was also included). The chest itself was a strong ABS plastic that was done in a "worn out" grey (to look like Prime's insides) while the Matrix was hand painted. I don't know the exact numbers of this run, but no doubt it was very low.

Once again a nice little piece. It's one of those that get overshadowed by the more mass produced be name guys but still cool to have. Till next time!
