    There was the domestic release under the name Prowl. That's all I know about it.

    I think they came with puzzles or something, maybe even mail aways. To my knowledge, they weren't on the show. No characters on the series got upgraded, except the original five Destrons, who became the Cyberbeasts and Gigastorm.

    The only other characters on the show who were different coloured versions of the originals were Ikado (a different character to Scuba) and the Legendary Green Warrior (a green Lioconvoy, if you are familiar with Gaogaigar he looked a lot like a Projectile X powered up version of Lioconvoy. He was also drawn slightly taller and bulkier than the regular Lio)

    You can't. Not unless you can track down a bootleg version. The show's never been released on dvd.

    I've got them. They're nothing particularly special, other than being a cool oddity. Don't have any pictures of the white one handy, but here's the black one:

    Ah, good point, forgot that episode. There was an episode where most of the Maximals were cloned as black copies of themselves - the Lio used in that one wasn't the Galva Lio but an all-black version (think Nemesis Lioconvoy). A couple of the other Cybertrons got copied as well? At any rate, Lio Jr was not a part of the cast at this time.

    The closest that you might get to owning the show on DVD are with the episodes that may be packed with the Takara reissues. They come with a DVD with an episode of the series, so perhaps we might get a couple of episodes that way.

    While the series never made it onto DVD, I hear there are some good VHS copies out there. No idea how to go about getting them, though.

    Black Lio Convoy appeared in episode 16, entitled (Would you guess it?) Black Lio Convoy!.

    In the episode, a black crystal is discovered that has the unique property of creating a completely destructive version of anything it zaps. It zapped BB and created a totally black, completely destructive version of BB, which nearly tore the Destrons apart himself. After he was taken care of, the Destrons used the crystal on Lio Convoy, creating Black Lio Convoy...
