    Primal was "Beast Convoy" in Japan.

    Then there was Lioconvoy in BW2 and Big Convoy in BW Neo.

    I'm pretty sure all Primes are "Convoy" in Japan. Even Galaxy Force had a Convoy on every planet (who weren't Primes in the US). But don't quote me on it.

    Wonder if it is the burning Convoy redeco or anime/toy black fur version

    We might get items to use with primal's left arm and back peg

    Ebay:
    The price suggests it's something sized around Primal and Inferno, so I think that rules out TM Primal, Optimal Optimus, or Big Convoy. Lio Convoy would be awesome, but I'm expecting a straight Primal repaint.

    Do straight redecos generally get a number all their own? Wouldn't a Burning Convoy redeco more likely get an MP-32B numbering?

    Delta Magnus was a straight repaint that go its own number.

    I'm guessing we will see alternate faces and/or mutant mask and also find out what that port on the left arm is for.

    Yeah, and they're new characters. I'd have thought an MP Optimus Primal redecoed into a MP Burning Convoy (the same character) would just get a letter on the end of MP-32.

    They also list a June release for this supposed figure. As easy as it is today to copy, paste and photoshop and with this being a "partial" page from some random "source" along with an ever shrinking time frame for an announcement, I'm finding this rumor very hard to believe. Granted, this could be true, but I'll wait for an Official announcement from Takara.

    Action Robo are a legit store so I expect this rumor will be proven to be accurate.

    Interesting. I don't think it's Burning Convoy because they would've just called it that.

    The name "Legendary Commander" makes me think it's a toy based re-deco with a new head, and it's actually not Optimus Primal but Optimus Prime in a BW body. Remember, the toy was supposed to be G1 Optimus until they changed him into a new character, the Primal we know today.

    So I think that's what it'll be. Will I buy it? I don't know. MP-32 isn't my favorite Masterpiece mold and it is a bit pricey, and I have no attachment to the old toy either.

    Are we raging about repaints again? The toys that fuel funds for new molds and the ones you are not forced to buy?

    Why would there be a "burning" deco for Optimus Primal? Did Optimus Primal ever "burn"? People need to give this "burning"BS a rest.
