    okay so what is the consensus on the gender of this guy/gal?

    namely, what was the final call? im sure Air Razor is always female even if japan did make ... anyway ...

    so whats the final verdict or just general accepted notion?

    I've just always seen Override to be a female.

    Last option. I think of Nitro Convoy as male, but Override as female, especially after reading Exiles.

    Male.

    I watched Galaxy Force first. Nitro Convoy is the character I attach to the toy, Cartoon Network be damned.

    I'd have no problem with them being female if that's what I saw first, or if that was the original intention behind the character. but it wasnt.

    I look at the characters as two seperate entities, One being female the other male.

    This. The one in Exiles is female, the one in Galaxy Force is male, I distinguish them as different individuals.

    Option 3.

    Nitro should be his own charecter he's more about speed is justice while Override is the strong female role model. Their both twins how about that?

    The character is, and will always be, Nitro Convoy for me. I watched Galaxy Force, and Override seems to be a slapped-together character for the sake of having a female on the show, or for other reasons unknown.

    Regardless, my own biases can't come into play here. What exists exists simply because it exists the way it exists no matter what I choose to make exist or not. My collection and preferences are mine, but as far as that goes is my collection.

    I watched Cybertron first, so I'll always think of the character as female. In addition to the the figure and animation model being solidly curvy and working well as a female, she just seemed to work *better* as a female in the cartoon. I doubt when they decided to gender-switch Nitro Convoy that they'd really thought ahead to her relationship with Lori, and probably just made her female because she looked like she could work that way, but the transformation of "Little Miss" into "Big Sister" really deepened the connection between those characters, and moved to a whole different level than what Galaxy Force had going on. It might have been a marketing decision, and the character might have been chosen at comparatively random, but whatever the circumstance, it was a change that WORKED, almost *stupidly* well, within the existing framework of the show.
