Nitro Convoy looks real good! Guard Shell looks like an abortion.

There have been rumors circulating that Nitro is going to be female, but just as many rumors claim he/she's not.

For some reason, I was under the impression that Nitro Convoy was going to be this new show's version of Hot Rod/Hot Shot/Rodimus Prime/Rodimus Minor/Hot Rodimus/Rodimus Major/Rodimus...whatever new name the character goes by these days.

The car kind of looks that way...the body/head...not so much. <shrugs>

Because of what? Granted, she(?) isn't delicate and pink, but neither was Strika.

*Sigh*

If only a person could purchase logical thinking.

The toy is sprayed like that to ruin its value as a test shot...anti-theft procedures.
He has hands, dude...I dunno if you've ever heard of a Transformer toy, but most of them have sliding or hidden fists that can be revealed...Think about it...The toy's hands are missing...HMMMMM...could it be!?! nah...

Not to mention...we've seen the Takara toy correnctly transformed about 50 thousand times in the last three months, what the hell have you been doing all that time? avoiding "toy spoilers"?

His hands are right there. How do you think he`s holding his gun?

the CGI pictures of Nitro Convoy make her look more like a Fembot, and she is clearly inspired by Minerva color wise

I'm liking this new version of Prime more and more, though whats he supposed to be...some kind of fire truck? Or a super tough delivery van?

Nitro Convoy looks ace...very sleek, and I can see why there are rumours that its a female character. Guard shell looks like a bad kitbash...some one melt it down and make into something useful...like a coaster!

She shoots, she scores!

I'd think I'd be great if 'it' was either male or female, but their freaking robots? Who gives a damn? The toy look kick ass and i hope to pick it up in the future.
