Convoy, the Space Trucker

A simple space trucker at the hight of the Bovinion technological era. Convoy was just getting back home from a long 2 light year long delivery only to find his planet in shambles and his people wrangled in herds, in lush grassy meadows. Outraged by what he found, and the fact that his Big Rig would fall to ruin without regular use, he set off to find work and the person responsible for his home. The extra solar would be useful. After searching far and wide, and delivering many space toilets to the various worlds of the galaxy, he decides to put his search on the back burner, and take part in the Robot Wars as a mercenary to make what extra solar he can to "beef up" his Big Rig, oblivious to the fact that the one who wrangled his homeworld, the one he's been searching for, is closer than ever.

Honestly, I think you are on to something here. I originally read the Space Horn to be a charged attack for a Bovine/Minotaur-like creature. I feel you could convert him into a redneck version of a Minotaur or a Bovinion who happened to have been off-planet during the whole Lonestar fiasco. This would be a nice little tie-in as well.

Food for thought.

That's a great suggestion, and I'll probably go with it. It was originally intended to be a sonic like horn honk blast, but I'm totally liking your idea better and better.

From reading the descriptions right now it sounds like Convoy is going to be a Tanky melee 'naut with some movement options to get in. I definitely want some more elaborate descriptions though so I can better understand what you had planned for the functionality of his moves. Space Horn sounds like Lonestar's bull, but in benefit to Convoy he is the bull, which puts himself near melee range. As far as Pot Belly Pounce sounds, I have to assume it will look something like Haggar's Body Crush from MvC3:
http://youtu.be/2waL6K-MwvM?t=10s

Finally, the Tire Iron also reminds me of Haggar lol RESPECT THE PIPE SON! Is it going to strike from above downward? Will it give me a sweet ground bounce that I can combo into and cancel my otg move out of? :)

To be serious though, Life Steal is a must for this guy on his melee attacks, because he sounds like he has only melee ranged abilities and that means he is going to take some damage on his way into melee range. Especially against zoners like Lonestar. Maybe some kind of Fighting game inspired super armor could give him an edge. In case you didn't know, super armor is a term applied to moves that cannot be interrupted in fighting games. For instance, Hulk's Standing heavy attack in UMvC3. He uses the move and even if you hit him during it, the move still comes out. So in Awesomenauts terms while using his dash he is immune to CC, but not damage. *It's the opposite effect that Froggy G's Dash has.*

Will Convoy's dash allow him to go in all 8 directions or just horizontally? Will it let him air dash horizontally, or can he only use it on the ground / he dashes down to the ground while using it if he falls off a platform? You may want to give him an option to let players activate the ability again to use his bull horns to launch enemies above him slightly instead of having knock back. Then he could combo into the Pot Belly Pounce and crush them into the ground and melee them for a bit. Pot Belly Pounce should have a snare upgrade on it instead of dot if it were used for this purpose though. Although, please let him keep some kind of dot, because OLE~! lololol

http://youtu.be/PoRx8j21dkY <<< OLE~!

On a slightly related note I'd like to say that Optimus Prime is called Convoy in Japan.

Which if you didn't know, commonly looks like this:
