    These two look spectacular together.

    Magmatron is a hugely impressive figure.

    Hope it’s okay to post this, I did a full review of Magmatron as none of the regulars on YouTube have yet

    Best picture of the week, thanks! I was worried he may be too big for Big Convoy (no pun intended) but they look amazing!

    Cheers. It seems pretty much bang on to the scale chart shots posted earlier.

    Yes, they establish early on that Magmatron is bigger than "Big" Convoy, but it's still pretty inconsistent which is probably down to the hand drawn animation.

    this screenshot is from the first episode of Neo -- Big Convoy in the foreground, Magmatron looking down at him.

    I always felt like "Nova Primal" would work for a localised Big Convoy, mostly because of the resemblance in the head/chest

    No, we don't want that abomination validated in any way.

    Yup! While the difference in the animation is not so notorious, my main concern is with the new Legacy Leo Prime/Lio Convoy. He still looks too short.

    The thing is they are pretty different. Nova is notoriously a space Nazi while Big is a combat junky who says really dumbass things and is loveable as all get out.

    Plus it wouldn’t it be weird to go back to Primal after skipping Leo?

    I’ll admit he isn’t bad…now if a Leader stays that size I can get behind it…if he gets smaller though? That is going to start looking bad to me.

    Coming up with different names? ME HERE! ME HERE!
    Now, some of these have been suggested multiple times... and most don't carry the gravity of a leader's name, imo.
    - Maximal Prime (as a title to be followed by another personal name, since 1. Removable Matrix and 2. was on the High Council in IDW BW G/A (iirc).)
    - Maximus Primal (some relation to Optimus Primal for face look, arm guns, shoulder rockets)
    - Macros Prime
    - Blastodon
    - Slammoth
    - Neo Maximus
    - Ultra Mammoth is a different character altogether
    - Warcry
    - Thundertrunk
    - Megatrunk
    - Mastotron
    - Impactoderm
    - Jumbomb
    - Thunder Strike
    - Fire Fight
    - MegaTon

    If he is going to be related to Primal then I say go with Primal, but maybe give us a tie in comic or something to show the new link as that could be a cool concept if Big looked at Primal the way Primal looked at Prime or something.

    They should just use Mammoth Prime. It has the mammoth = big thing happening, but it also pairs well with Leo Prime, where the first part of their name is just their beast mode.

    But, more importantly, they should just bloody well actually do Big Convoy, whatever the heck they call him. My original is still excellent, shellforming be damned. But I want to see what they can come up with for a new mold.

    Magmatron is not just a Transformer. Magmatron is a state of mind.

    I love his look, cause he is so monster esk yet in the end he maybe one of the most sincere of the big bads? In both media’s he ends up siding with Big C.
