    I bought this toy maaaany years ago at a local anime and import toys shop that I still go to often. It was obviously Beast Wars Optimus Prime, and was a top notch figure if not outright one of the best Transformers toys ever at the time.
    I couldn't help but wonder what crazy story there was for how ancient master bad-ass Optimus Prime ended up in the Beast Wars, how he lost his left arm (it is a more robotic replacement arm), and how he ended up being a Maximal.
    I loved that he kept his huge size as a mammoth too.
    Well of course later I found out that he was just another Optimus-looking new BW Character in Neo, and his name was Big Convoy... F**k that.
    I finally repainted him, so he is definitely Beast Wars Optimus Prime now to me. :) 

    Almost full repaint (except some of the chest and back) and 4 new missiles permanently installed.

    I dunno. That awesome paint job still still screams Big Convoy to me. :thumb 

    Love how you kept the artillery highlighted, man!

    Yeah BC looks so much like Optimus Prime already that adding and replacing some colors doesn't change the character much. I just wanted to push it on over that ledge into Primesville since he was so close already. I never watched BW Neo though.

    That's what I do. :)

    You mean the one that is the black version of this figure? That already hits its mark as nemesis really well as it is.

    Now, Big Convoy is one of my favorite TF characters, so I'm not crazy about the re-identification, BUT, that is one gorgeous paintjob on a wonderful toy!

    it absolutely does. (person opinion, it's my Favorite of all time Transformer) I just think with the love of radicons the figures attributes would look even greater.

    Lmao, "f*ck that." Great work dude, love that you turned him into optimus from big convoy. I always thought he was the original convoy who found himself brought into the beat wars through a twist of fate when the maximals needed the greatest cybertronian leader know. (You can use that back story if ya want, :thumb ).
