Just like Burning Convoy, Clear Convoy is
packaged in Beast Mode (Gorilla) with silver painted parts on his fists, thighs, and
torso. His weapons are black as well as various joints and when in Robot Mode, his
mask is the only part painted silver. Convoy has various weapons in his arsenal; 2
Missile Launchers with 4 missiles, Swords (x2), Ball-n-Chain, and Double Missile Cannon.
Convoy has a neat little gimmick with makes him pound on his chest as a
gorilla would do to show his strength. There are two switches (one on each arm)
which need to be in the down position. The second step is to release the lever
located on his back and when this lever is moved in an up and down motion, Convoys
arms swing in at the elbows and strike his chest.
There is a button located on Convoys buttock that
releases the Missile Launcher that whips into place on both shoulders. Each Missile
Launcher has a missile that can be fired by depressing a button. Two additional
missiles are stored on his back just behind his head. When the Missile Launchers are
extended, youll notice two ports on his back that is where his swords are kept.
Another gimmick uses the same apparatus as with the "chest pounding" gizmo.
Going back to the buttons on each arm, they must be switched in the upward position
to demonstrate the second gimmick. Insert Convoys sword in the portholes in
his fist (both top and bottom) which now looks like a bladed staff. Extend the arm
as if he has a bow weapon in hand, then extend the action lever in his back and move it up
and down. This rotates the arm from the elbow giving the appearance of a spinning
Another hidden weapon is in each of his forearms. The left forearm has a Double
Missile firing Cannon. Just depress a button at his wrist and the lower half of his
arm flips down and the cannon flips into an upward position.
The right forearm also has cab that is lifted revealing a skull. When this skull
is pulled out youll notice that is the "ball" that is connected by string
(chain) then connected to a handle. This is the Ball-n-Chain weapon that fits into
the top port of his fist. When both arms are extended and weapons are in hand, using
the action lever at his back makes Convoy "swing" these weapons as if hes
in attack mode!
I didn't bother explaining how to transform
Convoy from Beast to Robot since that was already explained on the Burning Convoy page.
I also took fewer photos for the same reason.
I really like Convoy of any variation in this
Beast Wars release. The appearance and transformations are excellent!
