    From Beast Wars Neo? I've been wanting to get this figure for a while. Is there a KO? If so, how's the quality and generally what's its value MISB?

    Thanks.

    The toy is decent IMO but I guess for some folks the gimmick in a way - er, spoils the bot mode. I have no idea how much je's going for MISB in the mkt.

    You can get one for about $30-$35. There is also a KO which you could get for about $15 if you can find them. The quality is far less and does not include the gimmick.

    I like him but not my favorite prime.
    If you can try to track down one of the hasbro versions that they were selling as an online exclusive it might be a little cheaper. Its the exact same as takaras only the box has a sticker on it explaining its exclusivity.

    Or there is always the robot hero versions that came out.

    Personally I like the Lio Jr. that came out as part of Magnaboss but thats even rarer.

    I really need to get Lio Convoy myself. I've wanted one for awhile.

    Isn't there some sort of purple variant that sells for a ridiculous sum?

    The normal version doesn't go for all that much.
    Flash versions go a little more expensive.

    Then there's the cool black versions with blue claws that rip a nice hole in your pockets.

    Or the black versions with gold claws that just make your wallets go kaput. :D 

    ---

    I got my Blue-claw Black version a while back (MISB) at USD75, but his box was kind of beat-up. Posted some pictures a while back if you want to see: http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/showthread.php?t=159839
    Personally, I think it's a cool figure. Very unique, but it doesn't beat the bad assery of the Big Convoy (or Universe Nemesis Prime) mold. Plenty of gimmicks along with Lio Convoy, but some may find that they make him a tad fragile.

    Alternatively, as mentioned before, you can get the Robot Masters Lio Convoy, but I only know the value of the exclusive black version of it (USD41).

    I think he meant Robot Masters.

    Yeah, there are a few Lucky Draws of this toy. The purple one is Galva Lio and looks to be at the $1500 asking range. The other rarer versions are the Gold Lio Convoys. There's a chrome one and a painted one (I think). Those look like they sit at the $3500 asking range.


    I found they go for about the same price on eBay. Actually if anything the regular Lio convoy goes for a little more there sometimes.

    You can get the little Robotmasters versions of him for pretty cheap, and they're cool

    I really love him. one of my favourite BW figures. with quite a simple transforming steps & IMO the gimmicks are rather cool. it adds a playbility factor to the toy itself.

    I think the DVD Robot Masters version is the best of the bunch. The miniturized mold actually is better IM than the big one.

    However, since the price is pretty reasonable you may want to get the OG. Heck, or even both- it is a Prime/Convoy afterall.

    Here here! I agree...love that mold, but finding a boxed Japanese version of Lio Jr. wasn't easy. Finally found it @ BBTS' table a few Botcons ago. Picked up the white/yellow puzzle exclusive as well, but the black/orange one still eludes me...

    For the price you can get an original for right now I would definitely snag one. Having recently sold one you should easily find one for around $30.

    Leo's kind of a jerk.

    I asked him if he could give me a ride to a friends house and he said he couldn't.
    Then, as I'm walking, who do you think drives by? Yep. Leo Convoy.
    I was like, "dude, why couldn't you drive me to my friend's house earlier?"
    He said, "I wasn't going that way."
    I said, "Yeah, then how did I see your Camry drive past me?"
    "You might have been mistaken. Lotsa knock-offs of me out there. Probably of my Camry too," he said.
    I couldn't believe he denied it. So, I showed him my cell phone cam shot. It was clearly him futzing with the cassette deck at a red light, trying not to notice me on the sidewalk.

    Flash seems to be the cheapest version of the mold... If anyone knows where to get a regular for $30 or so... PM me the info.

    I got the Flash Lio Convoy. I think he's pretty cool, but I honestly would rather have the regular version. I prefer it's colors to the white and gold.

    what does the black and purple version normally go for? A local shop has one for $49.95 and my bubby who works there would give me a good deal on it.

    The Robot Masters, eh? I'm a little hazy in my knowledge of that line. I wanted a Thundercracker/Skywarp at one point.

    The Black/Purple one usually goes for $1500 or so... It's a lucky draw. BUY IT NOW
