    alright thanks to black oracle, i have decided we should use our power as fans to see if we can rename "Big Convoy" to "Colossus Prime".

    so from this day forth when we speak of Big Convoy we shall say Colossus Prime instead.

    so lets start, the thing i find most interesting about people who have reviewed the toy of Colossus Prime seem to think his hip mounted feet are gatling guns, but if you pay attention to the OP he is clearly using them as thrusters when he pounds magmatron with his forearm mounted clubs. i'd have to say that Colossus' Prime's best feature asside from the Big Canon, are his feet, and how articulated they are when compared to other bots. they are almost gundam like.

    signature coming soon ...

    People who aren't in the whole thing will bitch and whine that "you're using the wrong name!". It's a damn good name, it's just that it's not going to spread unless Hasbro makes a toy of Big Convoy with that name.

    No.

    He's Big Convoy. I don't know anyone who thinks the thrusters are gatling guns, the gatling guns are on his hips.

    well he was a such a cool leader and every other convoy became a prime. he defeated unicron, brought peace to cybertron, why cant he be a prime?

    nothings wrong with Big Convoy, but come now, Colossus Prime just sounds so cool. and what with all the "Once True Scourge" Propoganda going around, thought it be worth to give it a try. make my mark. i dunno. something i wanna do.

    lets make it happen!

    This is a great idea, but why stop here? Let's rename everybody!

    ATTENTION ALL TRANSFORMERS FANS!!

    From now on, the character once known as Optimus Prime is now and forevermore to be referred to only as Cabby McTruckTruck!

    From this point forward, anyone calling Cabby McTruckTruck by the wrong name will face the eternal scorn of the whole Transformers fandom.

    So what's everyone's favorite version of Cabby McTruckTruck? I like Cabby McTruckTruck from Transformers Autoforce.

    Also, we are now calling G1 "Transformers Autoforce."

    He's Big Convoy.

    There's already a Colossus. He's a Decepticon Warlord. He's big, he's bad, he's awesome. Sometimes he goes by the name of Clench, but those people are naming him wrong.

    For he is Colossus.

    And he hates Primes.

    Very much Big Convoy, the only American appearance of him in comics even have him as Big Convoy.

    The whole Scourge debacle that you are talking about is in reference to the Generations G2 Optimus repaint to be named Scourge as in RID Scourge and not Nemesis Prime as every black repaint of Optimus has been Nemesis Prime lately and the only thread made about the True Scourge was a playful jab at the RID Scourge repaint thread.

    Colossus Prime is such a cumbersome name. Big Convoy is delightfully direct and fun to say. It fits the character far more.

    I gotta say I'm kinda tired of every non-Prime character who resembles Prime to be retro-actively labeled a Prime.

    Because he's not a Prime.

    Superheroes and the like can do great things but not be promoted to general in the army. There's more to being a Prime than just being a cool guy who doesn't afraid of anything.

    Do I detect a hint of sarcasm in that prattle of yours? :D 

    Agreed. Colossus Prime is a decent name, but I'm still calling him Big Convoy.


    Or dying repeatedly, don't forget that. :D

    why do I have a feeling people are going to call him so many things that some people will call him "the bot of many names"? anyway, I like Colossus prime, big convoy sounds too simplistic

    I also should've mentioned I find Colossus Prime to be extremely inferior to Mammoth Prime anyway, since at least that name works on multiple levels.
