    Product Description
    This article is about the Return of Convoy Autobot. For the Animated Autobot cyber-ninja, see Sky Garry (Animated).Sky Garry is an Autobot from the Return of Convoy portion of the Generation 1 continuity family. How very very Bravey.Sky Garry (スカイギャリー Sukai Gyarī) is Star Convoy's right-hand man. He has a great respect for the legendary Autobot Supreme Commander and was the one who brought Star Convoy back from the dead. Kinda creepy.His special attack is his "Mystery Circle Punch", which is really just a regular punch, but don't tell anybody that. He can combine with Star Convoy and Grandus in vehicle mode to perform the Triple Combination Battlestar Attack.His Micromaster partner is Shotbomber.Contents1 Fiction1.1 Japanese Generation 1 cartoon continuity1.1.1 The Battlestars manga and story pages1.1.2 Transformers Legends comic1.2 3H comics1.3 Wings Universe2 Toys2.1 Return of Convoy3 Notes Fiction Japanese Generation 1 cartoon continuity The Battlestars manga and story pagesEncountering an advance group of Dark Nova's Galaman warriors sent from an asteroid, Sky Garry dispatched them with his "Mystery Circle Punch". Bad touch!To counter the threat of Dark Nova, the Autobots formed an elite sub-group known as the Battlestars. Their mission was to revive Optimus Prime so that he might thwart Dark Nova. Sky Garry received the Zodiac from Dai Atlas and was inaugurated as temporary Autobot Supreme Commander, at least until Prime was back on his feet again. The Battlestars Part 1Sky Garry then enlisted the youthful rookie, Sixliner into the Battlestars after watching an impressive battle between him and a horde of energy-plundering Galaman warriors. The Battlestars Part 2Aware of the mission of the Battlestars, Dark Nova stole Optimus Prime's body and cloned it as the evil False Convoy. Sky Garry and Grandus managed to defeat False Convoy before he could kill Sixliner. The Battlestars Part 3 After False Convoy's defeat, Sky Garry rescued the fallen Supreme Commander's corpse from the Novaroid forces on planet Lucifer. Using the power of the Zodiac, Sky Garry brought Optimus Prime back to life and upgraded him into Star Convoy. The Battlestars Part 4Later, Sky Garry was stuck out in space battling the remaining Novaroid and Galaman soldiers around planet Lucifer. He was concerned about Star Convoy and Sixliner facing Super Megatron alone on Earth, frustrated he couldn't be there to help. The Battlestars special Sky Garry, Star Convoy and Grandus inside Star Giant's tummy.Sky Garry eventually joined the other Battlestars in a space battle against Super Megatron and his Great Galaman warriors. Combining into the Triple Combination Battlestar Attack, they shot Super Megatron to pieces. The Battlestars Part 7Dark Nova then revealed himself and upgraded Super Megatron into Ultra Megatron. The Battlestars Part 8 Then after that, the Decepticon Emperor merged with Ultra Megatron to become the Star Giant. The Battlestars Part 9 Sky Garry and the other Battlestars traveled into Star Giant's stomach and took the behemoth apart from the inside-out, narrowly escaping just as their foe exploded and died. The Battlestars Part 10 Transformers Legends comicDuring a recap of Megatron's life story, Waspinator mentioned the time he became the Star Giant and fought against Sky Garry and the Battlestars. Bonus Edition Vol. 13 3H comicsSky Garry in vehicle mode served as the shuttle that the Autobots (sans Daniel Witwicky and Wheelie) used to escape a horde of Nightbirds. Departure Wings Universe Sky Garry was hanging out at the Galadria Space Bridge Outpost in the Delta Prysmos Sector when a pirate ship appeared overhead and dropped a bomb on him and several other passersby. Hoist the Flag Toys Return of ConvoySky Garry (Autobot, 1991)Japanese ID number: C-360Accessories: Two guns, ramp, Micro Trailer #0 The one Transformer you're more likely to own a knockoff of than the real deal. Sky Garry transforms into a Cybertronic starship with landing skids. His middle section is expandable, allowing him to carry up to three Micro Trailers, though he only comes with one. His trailer is labeled #0. His third mode is a Micromaster base, unique in that it is a large tower. In this mode Sky Garry is supposed to unite with up to two Micro Trailers via the small hole bottom center on each side, more oddly the only toy to use these holes, but for unknown reasons the 5mm peg was beveled to uselessness. He still combines via ramp to a third Microtrailer, or with Sonic Bomber, or with any other Micromaster base. The ramp was the same one used by Skyhopper and Groundshaker to connect to other bases.Sky Garry's sticker sheet contained a phenomenal 65 decals — not including the 4 optional star decals that one could apply anywhere on the Battlestars. Only 5 of those decals were for Shotbomber, 5 more were for the Micro Trailer, the other 50 were applied to Sky Garry. This gave Sky Garry 53 labels (including the three factory-applied ones), providing him much of his colour and detail. Good luck getting them to stick, twenty years later, particularly the red stripes on the legs. Sky Garry also came with an exclusive Micromaster partner, Shotbomber.More information on Sky Garry at TFU.info Notes Not Fire Guts Sky Garry. According to Transformers Generations Deluxe, Star Garry was a pre-production name for the character.Both Sky Garry and Grandus have special attacks relating to things considered "mysterious". In Sky Garry's case, the "mystery circle" of his "Mystery Circle Punch" is the Japanese term for "crop circle". What this was actually supposed to connote is uncertain, but as far as it is known, the attack does not utilize wheat in any way. Sky Garry's mold was redecoed into the evil "Deathgarrygun" (デスギャリガン Desugyarigan) mecha for Takara's Brave of Gold Goldran series. This version came with three Micro Trailers, but all of the launching mechanisms were removed from them. This was just one of several late-series Transformers molds recycled for a Brave toyline. The Deathgarrygun toy would later become fairly easy to obtain thanks to its reissue by Sonokong in South Korea. Deathgarrygun toy gallery at a Japanese fansite. The word "Garry" isn't an English word, prompting fans to wonder what it's supposed to mean. Sadly, in the end, no one really knows...One theory is that Sky Garry's name is a misspelling of "Sky Carry". There is some support for this theory: First, the difference in Japanese between the katakana for the "Ca" sound and for the "Ga" sound is just one diacritical mark. Second, "Garry" is a commonly used suffix in Japanese names for transforming robots that transport ("carry") other robots or vehicles. The criticism of this theory is that while bad transliterations (i.e. the word is spelled right in Japanese, just converted to English wrong) are fairly common in Japanese names, katakana misspellings of the Japanese words are much less common. Thus, it seems somewhat unlikely that decades of Japanese robots using the name "Garry" are simply misspelling it.Another theory is that Garry is short for "Garrison". The support for this theory is that Japanese versions of English words are often shortened versions, such as the Japanese word "Ice" used for "Ice Cream". However, "Garrison" seems like a poorer description than "Carry" for the transportation robots that are generally named "Garry" in Japan.The most obscure theory is that Garry is a mistransliteration of Galley, which is a type of ancient war ship. The advantage that this theory has over the "Carry" theory is that "Galley" and "Garry" have the same Japanese katakana spelling. This means that it would be a bad transliteration, like "Minelba" vs. "Minerva", which is much more common than an incorrect katakana spelling. However, like the "Garrison" theory, "Galley" is criticized for not being as good a descriptor of the transportation robots (both ground and air types) that are named "Garry". In the mid to late-1990s, Sky Garry was one of the most commonly bootlegged Transformers, appearing in several different sizes. Most of them were carded and of poor quality. The carded ones are notable for their extra chrome pieces and separating legs. There was also a bootleg Sky Garry in box packaging from another manufacturer, which saw release at Toys "R" Us in the mid-1990s under the name "Convert-A-Bot Cybertron FX-7". This bootleg was of surprisingly high quality and included his Microtrailer but with the Growl mold rather than Shotbomber's.Retrieved from "http://tfwiki.net/mediawiki/index.php?title=Sky_Garry_(ROC)&oldid=1179020" Categories: Autobot leadersBeast Machines AutobotsCombinersJapanese-original TransformersLegends AutobotsReturn of Convoy AutobotsUniverse AutobotsWings Universe Autobots
