Transforms his appearance from a gorilla to robot, Convoy is the leader of the Cybertrons in the Beast Wars. Although named Convoy, he is not the same Convoy who commanded the original Cybertron forces but a new generation of warrior sharing the same name as the legendary leader. During a space exploration mission, the Cybertrons found themselves pursuing a Destron ship to retrieve the Golden Disc, stolen by the new generation Megatron. Both ships were caught in a transwarp and crash landed on an unknown planet...here began the Beast Wars sending Convoy and his companions on a fateful journey. The planet they landed on was rich in Energon which their robot modes could withstand for long periods of time, they therefore scanned the appearances of local wildlife and gained beast modes. Convoy chose the appearance of a gorilla. The gorilla is a most suitable form for a Cybertron leader; they have a large and powerful presence yet are calm and wise, often called the wise man of the forest. Convoy has a burning sense of justice yet he is still a young and immature leader; it often takes him time to call his comrades together and because of his sense of responsibility he often acts alone and finds himself in trouble. Through battle Convoy has grown in experience along with his comrades and became a leader worthy of his name. He dislikes the futility of war and hopes to stop the Destrons without hurting them. Although Convoy dislikes fighting he has sufficient fighting power and is more than evenly matched when battling veteran Destron warriors and Megatron the Emperor of Destruction when one on one. Good at brawling but will utilise a variety of tactics dependant on the circumstances such as his built in weapons like his cannon gun and twin sword; he can also take part in aerial battle using the booster equipped on his back. In order to prevent planetary destruction Convoy would embark on a desperate strategy to trap Megatron, even at the cost of his own life. This however was only the prelude to the great battle that would affect the fate of Planet Seibertron.
Built into both arms, each cannon has two gates, these are Convoys primary weapons used in combat. Both weapons can fire simultaneously; the cannons have such high power, a blast penetrated the body of Tarans in close quarters. Useful for firearm battles at medium range and Convoy can also fire them when in flight.
Cannons built into Convoys back which are deployed in battle and equipped on his shoulders. Mainly used to fire at long distance or aerial targets. Skilled at ground to air combat shooting down Destron warriors such as Terrorsaurer and Waspeeter; also used to intercept missiles. The Mega Blaster can be converted to the Convoy Jet when folded down on his back enabling flight.
This twin sword is Convoy’s handheld weaponry. Although Convoy excels with firearms he is also a skilled swordsman, a skill which comes in handy in a one on one fight with the veteran warrior Dinobot. The swords are incredibly sharp however there are a few scenes where Convoy does not exert enough power, refusing to hurt others more than necessary; however when he was confronted by Megatron in the heat of the moment he sliced off Megatrons right arm with a single blow.
Convoy has flight capability with his built in Convoy Jet on his back. One of the few aerial forces of the Cybertrons. Used frequently for rushing to site or for carrying his comrades. Often targeted by enemy firepower though there are only a few scenes where he is shot down. It is however an important piece of equipment and has saved the Cybertrons countless of times, such as supporting a crashing ship whilst he was holding a comrade.
