Black Battle Convoy

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

This was originally supposed to be a picture of Laser Optimus Prime, based on downloaded photos of the toy. But when I started colouring it, I decided that I hated the colour scheme. Looking around I found a Japanese repainted version that was released as Japan-exclusive. I decided I liked that colour scheme a whole lot better and used it, with some minor changes. Later I found out that this version of Prime (Convoy in Japan) was not Optimus Prime or a later Autobot leader wich the same head (something done way to much if you ask me) but a completely different character, and an evil one at that. Anyways, Car Robots is being brought over to the U.S.A. as 'Robots in Disguise', rewritten and all the characters renamed. Super Fire Convoy is being turned into the original Optimus Prime, ectetera. No clue what Black Convoy is being renamed as. This might be the first time a rewrite is a good thing for an anime, though, because the original Car Robots is known for sucking. Transformers in Japan are treated very childishly.
