Review: Legends LG-41 Lio Convoy
Seeing this new Lio Convoy next to the original, I just can't get excited over it. I know the original has its flaws but I still think it looks nicer in robot and lion mode.
Yeah this figure just isn't a great design. You can see what they were going for, but he's clunky and awkward more than he is dynamic and cool. I don't think he works particularly great as either Lio Convoy or Alpha Trion.

YESSSS! Here comes the King of the Maximals!
That was fast!
2 days flat. I freakin love Amazon Japan!
Okay so.... I got mine today. He's gorgeous. But I can't get the horns next to his head to stay down. They refuse to lock in the down position and if I can actually get them to stay down, they pop back up when you look at them. I would hate to take apart a figure like this... But is there a fix for it?
Not sure if this will work but on my Alpha Trion, I tilt the horns at a very slight angle forward or back, while pressing down. This seems to lock them in place(they don't pop out unintentionally much on mine).
The few times I got them down, this is how I got them down. My son's A3 stays down without much incident..
Sooo regal and imposing. Glad I held out on this mould and resisted getting Alpha Trion.
I'm just a toon guy so I'm not buying this version of the character BUT to me this is a great upgrade for the character , I could easily see this being the ultimate next version of him and yeah this does fit the mold heaps and bounds better than alpha trion.
Agreed. Alpha Trion needs to have his own distinct Transtector body.
Love the head, love the colors, but still do not feel the body. Just don't like it much.
My favorite version is the Robot Masters version. Maybe one day, I will have something like this.
Technically, this is Alpha Trion's own distinct body. It was Takara that repurposed it into Lio Convoy.
Heh...yeah. I kinda knew that.. Smarty pants..
I meant to say the mould used doesnt suit A3.. its better Imo as Leo Prime. A3 needs to be a new mould if Takaratomy were to release him....lol. fixed.
Daim shared a photo of the guy on FB recently. In the photo, the sword was plugged into the hip somehow. Does anyone know if thats possible with the toy, or just photo-magic?
I'm really digging this.
I'm honestly pretty impressed about how a good paint-job can completely change my opinion of a mould. I'm not a fan of TR Alpha Trion but the combination of gold, white and red is simply gorgeous and makes the flawed lion mode much more passable.
The vehicle mode is even better. This mode in TR Alpha Trion was barely anything but with the right details being painted here, you can actually buy this is an actual space ship.
And of course there is the robot mode which is solid due to beautiful paint scheme. The weapons are also appreciated, the sword is pretty appropriate for a majestic character like Lio Convoy although I don't understand the purpose of Astrotrain's gun since he can't even hold it properly. The articulation is not the best but it has the require wrist swivels for cool sword poses.
Overall, this is yet another successful toy in my mind and one of the reasons why I prefer the Generations/Legends lines over Masterpieces. A simple yet incredibly fun transformation which offers a lot of playability.
I like it more than I thought I would. I prefer transforming it this way. The torso looks too square with the lion legs transformed the intentional way and the horns leftover from Alpha Trion just look dumb. Only bad thing is that it makes the giant hinge sticking out of his gut more obvious.
