    Shirts AND an exclusive G1 Prime version! Wowzers...

    If only they weren't so freaking expensive? The shirts cost as much as the re-issue Prime!

    Red=G1, etc., ML repaint
    Blue=Diaclone Powered Convoy & reissue
    Yellow=Shining UM
    White=UM, ML
    Black=Black Convoy

    This sounded better than the pictures look, so not a must-have for me, though if it's reasonably "easy" to get... maybe...

    We've already had a Nike Prime, Megatron, and Ultra Magnus. Probably as close as we will ever get.
