    I'm so glad Primal and Leo Prime are still happening. Mildly gutted they're not model kits I can build myself, though.

    Hope Windblade still gets released.

    That's pretty faulty logic seeing as Optimus Primal is called Convoy in Japan. Hasbro could have gone for Primal if they'd wished.

    It's not faulty logic... It's his name in America and it always has been.

    Leo Prime has been his localized name consistently for years now. My guess is they wanted the Primal suffix to stay unique to, well, Optimus Primal.

    Yes I know this. I'm just saying you can't argue he shouldn't be called Primal becuase he isn't called Primal. That's the faulty logic I'm speaking of. I'm pretty sure @scrapmetaru was suggesting it might make more sense... and it sorta does.
    That would be my guess as well.

    Does Big Convoy have a "westernized" name? I could have sworn his black repaint in the Universe line was called Nemesis Primal, but a quick search revealed he was still Nemesis Prime (which is dumb, but whatever). Maybe they really are trying to reserve the Primal suffix for the OG Primal.

    Actually no, Big Convoy never got a westernized name, Unlike Lio Convoy into Leo Prime.

    I'm always confused with Flame Toys stuff. Primal is basically a pre-painted and pre-assembled model kit, right? So does that mean he will also release as a regular model kit?

    That also got my attention. They being promoted as figures with die-cast, something the first Furai Action Optimus I think didn't have. Not sure about the direction of this decision.

    I am not sure why I'm not completely in love with that Leo Prime, but I'm not.
    Maybe when I say the color scheme I'll be won over.

    Gha... I'm not overly familiar with Star Saber but that black one is stunning, and like quite a few of the SDCC exclusives (including the SDCC official merchandise)... I can't order it from outside the US :(

    Furai Action IDW Prime was $80 I believe. The normal Furai kit was $40. If Lio Convoy was a kit I'd expect it to be around $50 making the furai action Lio Convoy around $90.
