    Ah finally that Zoid Lio Convoy has been on my want list for quite a while now.

    I hope Tomy are Asleep when this comes out. and don't notice.

    I can't recall what the IDW Big Convoy turns into though... I don't think I've even really noticed there was once to be honest.

    I hope he's a nice size Deluxe would be good Voyager would be good and identical size to a Liger Zero Zoid would be awesome!

    But I suppose if they want to do it cheaply matching the RobotMasters one might work.

    If they make Zoid size and it has no production flaws then I'd say that would be joint best Third party toy ever along with Cyclops.

    And really does show how Hasbro is dropping the ball lately.

    There is some nice Coloured Not-Arcee and Not-Chromia pics on there too :

    Not seen the blue one before.

    That Leo Convoy is BOUGHT!!!! ^_^
    Big Convoy is a maybe, depending on a lot of variables, but if Leo Convoy is about the same size as the original toy I will have no hesitation, if he's smaller then I'll probably still get him but won't be as gleeful^^

    I'm thinking these will be the same size as PE-DX01 i.e. Deluxe sized. Probably a good match with the Classics.

    So, if Hasbro still doesn't want to do it, then well, these might just be my first third party purchases.

    Happy freakin New Year! Man, that's awesome. I was just asking myself the other day why there hasn't been any 3rd party Beast Wars toys? Well, here we are!

    Hmm, well it's clear Hasbro still has these characters in their heads when they're making new toys/repaints, since they did convert Leobreaker into that Target Exclusive Lio Prime toy.

    Plus, this might be a good thing for us BW fans, maybe a new Classics line featuring them will be sent out as a response to this, since I do like to believe Hasbro is featuring Bruticus in the shows/toys as much as they are, to combat the Third Party Bruticus from Fansproject.

    I always liked Big Convoy, so out of the two, I'd ggo for him. I wonder how much kibble they'll have. I'd be amazed how they pull it off.

    Wowza!
    A LioConvoy that looks like the IDW design would be hard to pass up.

    These pages might be useful :

    Lio Convoy - Transformers Wiki
    Big Convoy - Transformers Wiki
    Black Lio Convoy - Transformers Wiki

    They also include colour comic scans of the respective characters "Cybertronian Maximal Forms" ;

    Image:CybertronianBigConvoy.jpg - Transformers Wiki
    Image:Lioconvoy gathering.jpg - Transformers Wiki

    So you can see what colour they'd be.

    Good choice as both have multiple potential repaints !!!

    Lio Convoy / Galva-Lio Convoy / Black Lio Convoy (more than 1 version) / Flash Lio Convoy - and several more if you want to get really really obscure like one in the colours of the German Flag, or the Lio Jnr Jigsaw Puzzle Repaints. or even Hasbro's Spider-man coloured Leo Prime deco or the shiny DVD Lio Convoy From Robotmasters.

    Not to mention as he's also a Zoid you could also give him version Zoid deco colour schemes too.

    Both of those would look so bad ass in the black colours.

    Nemesis Prime (Universe) - Transformers Wiki
    Black Big Convoy - Transformers Wiki - Big Convoy (1999) - Cybertron Supreme Commander - www.tfu.info

    The original toys for reference :

    Big Convoy (1999) - Cybertron Supreme Commander - www.tfu.info
    Lio Convoy (1998) - Cybertron Supreme Commander - www.tfu.info
    Flash Lio Convoy (1998) - Cybertron Supreme Commander - www.tfu.info
    Lio Convoy (1998) - Cybertron Supreme Commander - www.tfu.info
    Lio Convoy (2005) - Cybertron Chief Commander - www.tfu.info
    Lio Convoy (2005) - Cybertron Chief Commander - www.tfu.info
    Nemesis Prime (2004) - Decepticon - www.tfu.info

    Oh and I'm still hoping someone will make the "Convoy Cannon" for the original Lio Convoy toy if the trend for Beast Wars Upgrade weapons ever finally starts.

    They made one for the RobotMasters toys but I'd like one for the full size toy too.

    I'm very interested. I am quite definitely sold on Lio no matter how he turns out. Big Convoy is a totally different matter for me. I am conflicted.
