    Im pretty sure he is a bit smaller than your average BW deluxe

    though choice, since you can find both at similar prices...

    The original got a great price for the size, different gimmicks, and a nice head sculpt, but on the other hand, the RM is more detailed for the size, and the chest locks better

    Get the metallic RM version. I've got that and the regular Lio Convoy, and the RM is sooo much cooler looking. It's pretty close size-wise to BW Cheetor.

    My answer, which probably won't be much help, is, "Get both!"

    Seriously. I loves me some LioConvoy, and both molds have their own fun gimmicks. I have the original, black version, and regular RM. I'm debating getting the black RM and tracking down the "Flash" version of the original. I may even bite for the metallic RM.

    It pains me that I'll almost certainly never own GalvaLioConvoy. :cry  I adore the mold, but it's not $1300 worth of adoration....

    I'd say the original especially if you have any Big Convoy and Primal in his original form. All three look good displayed together.

    true, but also the RM displayed with Big Convoy looks also cooler, since they are pretty much in scale :)

    Really? I never saw either show so I had no idea Big Convoy was suposed to be that much bigger. I guess it doe make the name Big Convoy make more sence. He's the smallest of the three in toy form.

    RM Lioconvoy has a much better 'bot mode, mainly in the chest and head. BWII almost has saggy man-boobs compaired to the shape of RM's chest. :)  RM also has a much more solid transformation to 'bot mode (less floppy result).

    BWII Lioconvoy has a much better beast mode. Less "holes" in the lion shell and a much better lion head. BWII also has rocket launchers under the mane. Also for some mystery reason, the tail is upside-down on the RM version.

    I love 'em both.

    It always did crack me up that Big Convoy was a good bit smaller than Lio Convoy in toy form.

    i loves me some convoys and bw2 lio convoy was the first one where i wasn't all that enthused with him once i transformed him. the robot master on the other hand is a much more solid and visually pleasing figure. for the price, he's a steal. i suggest the robot master version, hands down.
