We were pretty excited when we saw the first shots of a transforming Nissan GT-R toy in 1:24 scale, but after seeing the final product, it looks as if the supercar makes a pretty poor Transformer. If only it morphed into Godzilla, maybe that would be an improvement. Take a look for yourself at the pictures in our gallery in both regular and transformed versions. While in its hidden alt-car-mode, the 'bot has quite a few ill-placed seams, and when in native robot form the GT-R looks like it has insect wings. Still, it's pretty cool to see a Transformer made from the R35, and we wish we could see it do its transforming in the upcoming movie, but not in this form. Convoy is what they call Optimus Prime in Japan, and to our eyes, Prime can only be a Big Rig. Thanks for the tip, 94 Taurus owner!

      What I want to know is, how fast does it lap the ring and what did Nissan have to do to make it faster a Porsche Transformer?

      this Jeremy Korzeniewski is a complete and utter IDIOT. Seriously, lameboy, stick to talking about CARS, not toylines. Frickin' ignoramus.

      "we wish we could see it do its transforming in the upcoming movie, but not in this form. "
      Of course we won't see it in the movie. Optimus Prime is a good guy, and obviously all good guys must be from GM.

      It looks much better when transformed.

      this thing is awesome but a few quick facts though.

      1.It is a 1/32 scale model not 1/24

      2.it will cost 50 dollars you can get it at thebigbadtoystore.com check back later the page is being updated. Just put alternity in the search bar.

      3.the red silver and blue one represents Prime(Convoy in japan)and I think the silver one is his twin Ultra Magnus.

      Don't they mean "Alternators Convoy"?

      Alternators is their 1:24 realistic lineup. I have several, they are nice. Wish I had a couple of others.

      But Convoy should be a truck, though. If not a semi tractor, then a re-color version of their Dodge Ram Optimus Prime, or something. Or a re-body of it to look like a Chevy or a Ford truck on the same architecture.

      I can't believe they couldn't find a better character for the GT-R. SideSwipe, maybe. I am sure there are others.

      at least there are no lips, MICHAEL BAY!
        • 6 Years Ago
        Optimus Prime, in his earlier life as Alpha Trion, had lips. Supposedly, his lips were damaged in battle in his post-transformation life as Optimus, which is why he wears the mouth guard all the time - name another autobot who ALWAYS wore a mouth guard without looking it up - but Transformers have all always had lips.

        Let it go. It's a 25-year old cartoon based on a line of plastic toys from Japan.

        dude, i just got totally pwned and geeked out...

        optimus prime has a face mask. you said it.

      A supercar doesn't suit Optimus Prime. I prefer the one in silver. It should be Bluestreak, who was a Nissan originally (280Z).

      Anyone have the specs on the tyres this comes with?
