    Should have stayed male in Cybertron. Never liked the female Override.

    I never watched much of Cybertron. I however watched all of Galaxy Force by way of fan subs so my vote goes male.

    I think Override should've been a female because she was friendly with the human female named Lori

    By that logic, Animated Optimus Prime and his crew should all be female because they're friendly with Sari.

    I watched the Fan Subs so I feel like Nitro Convoy is the right character. Also I don't think a female character really fits the body its far to built not only on the toy (mostly due to its gimmick) but also in the animation model is far more male looking even with the boots

    So as a concept they both can work its just that a male character looks right

    I felt the character worked a lot better as a female. The relationship with Lori turned into a rather charming "big sister/little sister" thing as a consequence that I just don't think worked that well as an opposite-sex thing.

    Female. Override's gender was barely as issue just as it should be except when it came to the necessary changes for Lori. Override just allowed for a female voice actor to get to play a cool character instead of a guy for a change.

    Male.
    While it's nice to have more fembots. I'm not really into characters changing gender when they go over seas.

    I thought Override was originally envisioned as a female character originally and then changed to male by Gonzo along with them dropping the links to Armada and Energon.

    I'm only familiar with Cybertron, so Override's a female in my book... at least, as far as the Cybertron series goes.

    On the other hand, "Thunderblast" is a terribly femmy name. :)

    Meh, don't care about Thunderblast. They're not RAPING MY CHILDHOOD and RUINING EVERYTHING FOREVER!!! by giving it to a girl.

    other way around.

    Gonzo made it as a stand alone continuity with no links to Energon or Armada but their was the occasional reference to G1 but even then they were small links like showing G1 sound wave in his cassette player mode or the clip showing Prime, hot rod, Ultra Magnus and Jazz in another dimension doing something to upset the balance of good and evil (believed to be killing Unicron in the G1 movie but their all just standing around in a white room in the clip).

    It was Cartoon network who insisted that their had to be a good female Autobot and so Nitro got a sex change in the dub I guess to balance out Thunder blast because apparently if you have a bad girl you need to counter it with a more positive role model as well (lame).

    Maybe in the early development their would of been a female convoy but sadly that info was lost to time. But I do recall a few tid bits from I think it was Botcon or SDCC that was around the same year as Cybertron. Apparently their was originally going to be a war planet rather then a gaint planet and with this in mind I cant help but look at Chromia/Thunder Blast and think maybe she would have been that planets leader. She's got the Convoy Head gear and the Matrix of leadership for a chest plate that's a little too close to just say its just luck.
