    Did he ever have an American name? Like Lio Convoy was Leo Prime.

    They did a black release of him in the US called Decepticon Nemesis Prime, but he'd probably just be Big Convoy.

    Big Convoy. Yep, it didn't change. He was named such in the BW: Ascending comic.

    I call him Hans.

    I think you can just substitute 'Prime' for 'Convoy' here in the states. Although I still refer to Lio Convoy as just that, Lio Convoy. Besides 'Big Prime' sounds like a Sizzler special.

    Apparently that's not what Hasbro chose to go with. At least, not yet. I figure they'd save Maximus Prime for a merger between Optimus Prime and Fortress Maximus, though.

    That's what I call mine. Big C is Maximus Prime, and Lio C is Sentinel Prime (the name just seems to fit him).

    And technically, to my knowledge Lio Convoy has never been called anything officially other than Lio Convoy. Leo Prime is a Lio Convoy coloured Leo Breaker.

    Also, i was looking at The Ascending, and he kind of looks more like Ultra Magnus than any Prime.

    Bruce. He looks like a Bruce to me.


    Or Manny like in Ice Age. But I like Bruce better.

    The only official US version of the character is in the IDW BW comics, and he's called Big Convoy.

    Before your time, I guess.


    But you know, Mastodon Prime is a pretty good name.
