Question for any Transformers G1 fans out there, why do all G1 Autobot leaders except for Rodimus and all the ancient Primes before him look like Optimus in a cosplay?
In Transformers Beast Wars II, Lio Convoy looks not only like Optimus wearing a lion costume, but before they land on Giea he looks exactly like Optimus and is even directly called "Convoy" by Apache.
Big Convoy in Beast Wars Neo looks just like Optimus as well. He just looks like OP wearing an ax costume. Or even in Car Robots (not the English dub) Fire Convoy LOOKS JUST LIKE OPTIMUS! Or even earlier in the Japanese conuintity, Star Saber looks like if Optimus was a Gundam. I could also say that Godmaster Ginrai looks like Optimus, but his transtector IS Optimus. Anyways, if anyone knows or has a theory why this is, please tell me.
Oh, and even Grand Convoy from the Maximal council is an Optimus look alike.
