    Right been eons since I worked on this Battlestar Convoy project, so I'll just make a new thread. In fact, it's been so long I posted anything, I bet most of you forgotten me again. ;) 



    Anyway, I did some work this week! Behold the concept for the trailer + cab of Classics Star Convoy spaceship mode. :)  Quite happy with the result.

    This is part of a much bigger combiner toy concept, where a repainted Grandus (Armada Tidal Wave), a "Classics Sky Garry", Classics Optimus Prime, HiQ/Roller and the Star Convoy Trailer can all combine into one mega combiner, which would be called "(Classics) Battlestar Convoy". :) 

    As seen in this collage:

    See the old thread for loads of full size sketches here:

    As you can tell, the last post in there was in 2009, so I figured I should just make a new topic. ;)

    The truck nose looks like a TGV express train. Makes me think of Astrotrain rather than Convoy. Still an awesome idea.

    Love this. Personaly, I think it should be "Sky Carry", as the /g/ and /k/ sounds in Japanese-interpreted loan words tends to be similar to how they get confused with /l/ and /r/ sounds (hence "Biku Kamera", when they wanted to write "Big Camera"). "carry" is basically his function and with that word instead, it looks like his name is hiding in plain sight as a shipping/freight company, too.
