Convoy - Alternity

Convoy never quite felt right as a car. He had always suspected that there was more to him than met the eye. His mother never talked much about his father, just that he was a Skyline GTR that crashed in an unremarkable race before Convoy was manufactured. He wanted to know more but she would always shrug him off, saying that racing wasn't going to take her son too.

In middle school, Convoy took to stunt driving, he always wanted to jump higher and higher, he felt uncomfortable being so close to the ground, he was always looking up.

It was one day while he was making out with a Camaro in the garage that his seams started splitting. The Camaro freaked and busted out (like Wile E. Coyote). That night, his mother told him that his father was indeed a robot.

I don't know what happened, one minute I'm browsing ebay, the next minute Convoy shows up at my door (there may have been a few weeks between said minutes).

The Nissan GTR's nickname is Godzilla, and Godzilla is the king of the monsters.

From Wikipedia: "The Nissan GT-R is powered by the VR38DETT engine, a 3,799 cc (3.8 L; 231.8 cu in) DOHC V6 with plasma transferred wire arc sprayed bores." and that is awesome. I don't know what that means but there is plasma involved.

Convoy is right side steering wheel because he's Japanese.

Convoy trained a long time to be able to transform quickly. It took him two months to work up to completing his first conversion and it was exhausting. He's now down to 3 seconds at fastest, but 7 seconds is the most comfortable pace.

This transformation is moderately complicated, his legs have many moving parts and his chest has a few really slick automated movements.

 Convoy does yoga regularly to increase his strength, balance, flexibility, and most importantly, bodily awareness. When you can take two completely different forms, it's important to keep track of your limbs.

Other Convoys have generally had the twin windshields convert to breastplates, this convoy does not but the headlamps are reminiscent of the previous designs.

Convoy has bangin thighs, he needs them to maneuver his gargantuan calves. Also he has flip out wrist blasters, pew pew!
