This franchise is notable for being the first Japanese series not to have any corresponding animation. Neither would the next franchise, Operation Combination.


Return of Convoy continued the storyline of the animated continuity, picking up where Zone left off, but was never actually animated. Instead, the story was told through a single issue of manga and story pages.

The Return of Convoy storyline revolved around the return of Optimus Prime as Star Convoy and his battle against Dark Nova and the resurrected Super Megatron.
