TF08 - Transformers In China • View topic - 2008.11.13 Leo Prime loose
he looks great
I think the Leo prime from Neo was alot better than this guy this one looks really forced.
I think the idea behind this repaint is that when you combine him with Cybertron Optimus, they look more integrated because they share the same colors and color placements. The red used on the lion body will translate to the "upper arm" while the blue will translate to the "hand" and "forearm" of the Leobraker/Arm that you combine to Cybertron Prime, keeping in tune with Cybertron Prime's red upper arms and blue forearms and hands.
I like this figure a lot more than the previous releases, and if there's one thing I love on Transformers, it's face plates!
I always wanted to eventually own this mold, now he's a definite buy for me.
It still looks like they just threw the Prime paintjob on him and called it a day, there's no imagination or effort in it. At least they could have made him LioConvoy, had another series homaged for the 25th Anniversary, and made it look different.
I'm still on the fence with this figure. I would've liked to see the Lio Convoy paintjob that was used on the Legends class figure applied to this one.
However, with the new head remold, it makes a good candidate for a repaint of Razorclaw as seen in the BC 06 comic.
I was hoping the silver parts would be white...
Lio Convoy is possibly the best toy to come out of the BW era.
The Leobreaker mold however is uninspired with a very lackluster transformation. Perhaps one of the weakest Voyager molds turned out to date.
People may buy it because they've stuck Prime's head on it, but that doesn't change the fact that the mold represents an extremely weak effort.
(Can you tell that i LOATHE this mold?)
I'll be picking this up, hope he still has sound effects.
Blame the electronics and the arm mode.
Pass. I guess he'd look better on Prime's arm, but I so much preferred Galvy + Dark Ligerjack combo anyway.
I'm considering getting this guy. still unsure, but I do like the new head.
The remolded head is win for me
i like that new head but wish it was more white
Non truck Prime = Win in my books.
Hmm...I suppose he would look better with Cybertron Optimus Prime, but that's not really enough to convince me to like this, since I never got Optimus Prime from Cybertron, this one's Arm Mode would be pretty useless to me.
I always thought he really just stood up and his head popped out rather than "transform". =/ It's got a better looking head, but I think I'll be passing.
My guess is that this will end up a shelf warmer like almost all of the new Universe Ultra/Voyager figures have so far. I agree that he would look better as the arm mod on Cybertron prime but then things get too confusing with the similar faces. I would have loved to get a Lio Convoy in the Universe line
Totally agree. If Lio Convoy (Prime) had bee in the place of Optimus Primal, I would have come to like BW that much earlier. I never did like the idea of making an Optimus an Ape.
Anyway on topic. Universe LP looks nothing like the BWs Lio Convoy, I agree it took no imagination for the color scheme. I'll get it though, I've always lliked Beast cats.
wake me for the Razorclaw redeco, i really don't like this (i agree with everyone who said the Lio Convoy deco would look tons better ~ i guess it would have been a bit too close to the original, but this just doesn't work for me at all)
I find it insultingly ugly
