Please thank him for us.
So new wheels but an alternate head is still out of the question?
Looks great. Just need to know when it'll be released now.
The new wheels definitely up my chances of preordering him/her.
Goddammit....I need to figure out which version I'm going to refer to this as, because the way I'm handling it right now is going to offend SOMEBODY on this board, it's just a matter of time.
So, new wheels (much nicer and more appropriate to character), and greatly improved deco on torso and crotch. Face seems a bit lighter but that may just be the photo. No new cockpit?
I'd still love to somehow have the front of the vehicle remolded, but I'm fairly sold on him as is.
How does this mold size up to an MP carbot in both modes?
aaaaaaand officially sold. Glad to see the transparent wheels and the deco changes look great!
I’d still love if the chest windscreen was a little longer, but the paint apps make the illusion work fairly well so I’m cool with it.
It's meant to be Nitro Convoy not Override so understandably the thread title may confuse people. This is why the head looks how it does and why mmc didn't explicitly feminize the design or reference the idw character at all.
Slightly taller than your average mp carbots
So will scale nicely with galaxy meteor
That's all the confirmation I needed.
Also, those comparisons are perfect, thanks a lot!
Considering the toy is named Nitro, it seems obvious this is Nitro Convoy, not Override. Thread title should be changed.
So.... when do we see Live Convoy from Turben? And then Flame Convoy... and (gulp) Megalo Convoy...
Thing is theirs no actual visual difference at all between the two versions of the character in the original show and this is the predominantly english speaking community who would be more familiar with the english dub characters name so the figure still represents the english version which had a female voice actor but was otherwise visually identical.
But yeah its Nitro. Dunno if that's going to be the final name on the box but that's first and foremost who it is a toy of.
Can we get SG Galvatron from Turben?
If they did offer a more female face and chest for Nitro, I would like to see a convention exclusive GTS deco, because that toy was repurposed as SG Elita One.
If an MMC Flame Convoy gets retooled into RID Bruticus, I'd be all over it. He'd go great w/PE Cryotek (well, I assume PE Cryotek will someday exist). I'll let you spearhead that fan campaign, though . . .
You have to wonder if Megalo Convoy can't be a retool of Tesarus (w/Helex being BM Tankor?). He'd be on the small side, but it'd be one way to make it happen
Okay, the new wheels? Have me sorely tempted to pick her up. Still not sure if I'll actually end up biting on this one+galaxy meteor, but the temptation is approaching Critical Mass!
