Good boy! Whose a good kitty?
Very sturdy imo. LIKE A LION. Get him for sure.
I bought MP 48 Lio Convoy a couple of weeks ago and decided to transform him from Lion to Robot mode today out of boredom from being shut in with this awful Coronavirus thing going around. Sadly while transforming my figure, he broke during transformation. I was careful with transforming him too.
The part that broke was in his red chest area. As I tried folding the left-side of the chest (with the blue panel), the hinge holding the chest piece snapped right off. It will hold since there is a hinge sitting on the top of the chest piece that fits into the right chest piece (with the Primal logo on it). Still, if I undo the left chest piece from the peg that is holding it in, it pops right off. I could probably live with it, as the peg that goes into the chest piece holds it in place, but I am very bummed knowing that I have a defective masterpiece figure. That chest piece will pop off as soon as I unpeg it from its waist area if I decide to transform him to Lion mode again.
After the travesty with my Hound, who also is defective at the rocket launcher hinge, and now Lio Convoy, a figure I am now trying to return, I am done buying "expensive" Takara Masterpiece figures. I don't want to keep wasting money on pieces of junk with awful quality control. I cancelled my MP 50 Tigatron preorder.
Anyways, here are a couple of pics of the defective part of my figure.
Our set is up! Impressed with the big guy, and first one in a long time that did not break at some point, which was nice.

Doh! Sorry, my post above was made while you were posting. Wasn't trying to rub it in :/
You're fine. I just came in here to vent my frustrations and disappointment with my Lio Convoy figure breaking. Your pics look awesome, by the way. He really is a cool looking figure. So you can imagine my disappointment of having to return him, if I can. I bought him through ChosenPrime. Not sure if they'll take him back or not.
This almost makes him look semi compitent
Lion mode looks kinda wonky but that robot mode is gorgeous.
This must be the most hedious animal form in MP line by far........It migth be the ugliest lion mode ever made in TF toy history.
That Robot mode tho,super sexy.
Robot mode is gorgeous but that lion mode is garbage.
Jesus, that robot mode looks like it was sculpted by Munetaka Abe.
Dear god... this pics may have just sold this guy to me
That robot mode is amazing.
That lion mode is fugly. Easy pass.
From the front the lion mode looks decent enough. The side view tho, wow. Takara couldn't have come up with some side panels to cover up that mess.
Won't have mine in lion mode anyway because the bot mode is just beautiful.
I....I think this might be the sexiest Transformer....
Superb robot mode. Lion mode is eh.
Far too small.
Far too expensive.
Takara finally succeeded in pricing me out of collecting.
The robot mode is awesome looking, but that can’t make up by how indescribably awful the lion mode is. By far the worst mode of any Masterpiece figure ever, the only other contender being maybe the original robot mode of Megatron.
