    YouTube - Fire Dagwon

    Take a good look at the way the fire dagwon transforms through the arms and shoulders from vehicle to robot mode.

    Notice the position of the wings and turbine jet engines mounted on the back

    Now compare that to galaxy convoy in super mode

    YouTube - Galaxy Convoy Transformers Cybertron Galaxy Force

    YouTube - Galaxy Convoy Super Mode Transformers Cybertron/Galaxy Force

    the way the lower legs transform to super mode is actually quite similer to fire dagwon combining with power dagwon to from super fire dagwon

    YouTube - Super Fire Dagwon

    I don’t know maybe its just me but I cant help but notice some bit of brave design homages in galaxy convoys character

    Yep Braves & TF designs have more or less (vice versa) influenced one another as time goes by.

    Since quite a few of the current Taktomy TF toy designers did some work for the Brave line in the 90's. dat's all.

    Or any one of the little Brave cars, really.
    It's my opinion, based on the timing of their release and the design similarities, that JRX and Build Boy were designed for a cancelled Brave series, or at the very least, were created by folks that had worked very closely with Brave stuff.
