|"The truth is getting blurry, but the lies are getting clearer."|
No one knows exactly who or what the being code-named "Galva Convoy" really is. Since his arrival in Axiom Nexus, the rumors have been swirling. Some claim that he is a deep-cover black ops agent for the mysterious group called "The Convoy". Some believe him to be a negative-polarity version of Nova Prime. Others maintain that he is some sort of clone or sparkless double created as a contingency plan to be used in the event of an uprising against an oppressive regime. The most popular theory in the Security Administration is that he is a dark reflection of Maximal Supreme Commander Lioconvoy of universal stream Primax 209.0 Gamma, possibly pulled from a mysterious "Shadowzone" and powered by the spark of Unicron. One fleeting rumor even has it that he is really the seldom-seen bartender Macaddam, although only "Swerves" tend to believe this one. He is frequently pursued by Officer Cheetor as the chief suspect in a string of as-yet unsolved crimes among the "lowtech" denizens of Axiom Nexus. Regardless of his origin, he is a most sinister being, whose calculating demeanor focuses the fury of emotions inside of his processors and causes him to exude a quiet intensity that would make even the most reviled Predacon shudder in his or her struts. He has no great desire for power, merely an unquenchable third for destruction.
ABILITIES: Galva Convoy transforms into a lightly-armored truck capable of speeds up to 550 mph. He carries an ax with a blade made of what appears to be "Dark Energon", or possibly "Angolmois" energy. His photon blaster is his most powerful weapon, capable of taking down most bots with one shot. The blades on his arms are fairly effective in hand-to-hand combat. Inside his chest cavity is an Energon Matrix of unspecified ability.
WEAKNESSES: While tough, his armor is hardly indestructible. His extremely secretive nature means that he has very few allies, although he usually doesn't need any. Due to his alternate mode, he is not particularly fuel-efficient.

Botcon 2015 customizing class figure. Also sold in limited quantities (unpainted) at the Club store.
Based on a Lucky Draw deco of Beast Wars Second Lio Convoy, commonly known as "Galva Lio Convoy", which was a version of Lio Convoy sporting Beast Wars Second's Galvatron colors.
The bio references a lot of interesting concepts, including that Galva Convoy is a "negative polarity" (Shattered Glass) Nova Prime, an idea borne out by his faction being "Evil Maximals" just like the SG Autobots are "Evil Autobots"; though this suggests he is more of a SG Lio Convoy. The Shadowzone, a dimension out of phase with normal reality from Transformers Prime, is mentioned. The reference to Dark Energon and Angolmois is interesting, as fans of Transformers Prime and Beast Wars Second respectively might recognize both of these as forms of Unicron's life-force, and this bio effectively equates them as similar - but not the same. Lastly, the reference to Galva Convoy possessing an Energon Matrix is another reference to the Beast Wars Japanese lore, where there were many leaders or Convoys, and each would have a Matrix known as an Energon Matrix.
