Comic Books: Takara Tomy posts a comic for "Generations Selects" Star Convoy

As part of their promotion for the upcoming "Generations Selects" Star Convoy figure, Takara Tomy has posted a two page comic featuring Optimus Prime (aka Convoy) and Galvatron taking on some nasty invaders with a little help from the Matrix of Leadership! This comic plays off of the play pattern on Star Convoy, showing Convoy changing into the larger "Star Convoy" form and the creation of his Matrix blaster.
