One Convoy per planet, iirc. There may even be four...

Fits in with the Convoy Council from the Japanese BW series. Remains to be seen how it'll translate across into Cybertron...

Flame Convoy appear to be GD, so an evil bot, affiliated with Destrons, not an Autobot Commander, altogh there is no confirmation of this on his bio ... Have anyone more information about this?

"Appointed by the Convoy Council" and "affiliated with Destrons" aren't necessarily mutually exclusive.

He could easily be a turncoat. From/to either faction.

Anyone notice that Galaxy Convoy's Supermode head looks alot like Star Convoy's?

I wonder if Galaxy\Cybertron will be continuing with the major homage of Energon or going in a new direction......

The fact that he's not called Convoy is a dead giveaway.

Japanese Prime = different to Japanese Convoy.

Much as if Hasbro released a toy with the word Convoy as part of its name, it wouldn't automatically make it a Prime.

why? As i can remember, Vector Prime is supposed to arrive with the minicon (From Where?) after the black hole appearence, to call the Convoys in a mission to rescue the universe on planet Force; the same planet will be the goal of the Decepticon army.

A note: according to his description, the Minicon do not active any sort of feature (powerlinx), so i suppose that the Minicon will play other than a major role like Armada. Could they be only a partner for the human child?

They really are bringing back Micron Densetsu characters who didn't appear in Superlink. Nice.

Transformers are going to have to get less cool if I'm to have money for anything else. Galaxy Force owns A3.
