    Heres a pic of my newest addition to the exclusives and hard to get toys. The gold claw lioconvoy. The box is kinda beat, but its still misb. I myself prefer the blue claw but the limited apperances of this guy made it a must buy(got it at a bargain). Anyways, just showing this some of the people here that have never seen it. Enjoy.

    OK, I opened him, couldnt help it, so heres some pics of the finished product. I would classify this guy as probably the rarest exclusive I have. it even smokes the blue convoy and black magmatron in rarity according to the times it has shown up.

    Ah the fabled gold clawed version. Just what is your story? So many questions, if only you could speak to answer them.

    Very cool! I don't remember ever even hearing about this version before.

    Lio looks really nice in black, btw.

    That's awesome looking. I've always liked Lioconvoy. I've heard of this one before. I didn't know it was that rare. Great buy.

    Go to sleep!


    So there's a blue one too? Does it have blue eyes like the gold one?

    There are several versions of the Black Lio Convoy. There's the lucky draw version, where the toys are numbers on the backside of the robot mode. I know there is at least one blue clawed version of those. There is the normal blue clawed general release version, this gold clawed version with its uncertain origins, the rumoured (but I believe never seen) silver clawed version. The normal blue clawed version is the most common, there are ten lucky draw versions, we've seen two gold clawed versions but never the silver clawed version only read reports of its existance

    I love lioconvoy, so yes, 50 bucks is a good deal for the blue clawed black lio convoy. best version of lioconvoy IMO.

    People who open rare toys make me happy.

    That's a sexy Lioconvoy, too... except now I'm reminded that I wanted one to go with my Big convoy. Argh!

    Well the box says it's a Toys R Us original.

    I've seen a couple of them around here, never was too interested in them, but now that I'm seeing your pictures, I'm definitely reconsidering... *shakes fist*

    whats really cool about the black lioconvoy is that the arms and chest black plastic is mixed with gold it seems, so it gives off this kinda iridescent look in certain lighting.

    Thanks Draven. your opinion is always welcomed and respected. i got this guy from ebay.uk, and I'm surprised no one picked up on it. I guess i was the only one looking for gold/silver claws at the time. ksg was selling one for over $1000 a while back, so I'm happy that i picked him up for less....well, lets just say if I paid what i did for a regular black lioconvoy, it wouldve been alittle too much....a little.
