If its about Transformers, the toys, it's fair game.

I see no resemblance between the two in terms of body shape.

Let's try thinking outside the box. Instead of thinking of repainting one Optimus/Convoy figure into another Optimus/Convoy figure, think of something a little more creative and original. I mean, DoFP Optimus Primal was made from Cybertron Crumplezone! How original (and brilliant) was that? 8-)

No he's not. He's an entirely new mold who shares the same general bodyform-engineering as Leader-1. But they are neither redecoed nor remolded of each other.

It's kinda like how the Energon Starscream figure shares a similar transformation with the G2 Smokescreen/BWII Starscream/RiD Smokejumper/RobotMasters Smokesniper figure mold, while being an entirely new figure.

well for big convoy at least there is no reason that furstgunner/red alert wouldn't work for him. retool the sholder launcher to become hand held and it would take the place of the trunk/hind quaters blaster. retool the head and there is your big convoy.
as for lio convoy hmm. he is powerful and although we know his pre bwii form i'm thinking perhaps rid sideburn. they are both lanky figures and with a retooling to the head it could work.
bor bwn break rid prowl would work.
perhaps vector prime could be redecoed in to the last autobot. there transformations are quite close and it wouldn't take much.

i would like to see starsaber also but off the top of my head i can't think of a figure that would work best. perhaps universe silverbolt with a redecoed head?
nitro convoy with a replaced head would work as a blurr that would look better than what we have in armarda/cybertron or even a modern, cybertron hotrod.
ofcourse we're missing the simplest redeco. armarda terrorsaur in to ravinus

in my hands at 6.29 england time, i am holding nitro convoy. i realisee that he is much the same in colour as starsaber.

not i'm thinking about how much of a lost opertunity it is that hasbro havent simply replaced the head and changed the name.
sure it isn't a space ship and not a brain master but it would be so cool.
in fact, i am going to pick up another nitro convoy and kitmash it.
i've got a pare of small blue wings that would replace the tail fins on the reer, also i have a small starsaber head that is just the rite size for the gap where nitro's is.
if i were to extend the rockets on the reer i could create a new starsaber.
i'm also thinking simply paint the rists and modify the engin to hold a sword.
it would look pritty cool. i'll keep you guys updated on it and place in the alterations section so you guys can take a look when done.

i've been trying to find a figure in skail for victory leo also but no luck so far. true the figures wouldn't be able to combine any mor but never the less i will give it a go
what do you guys think
