    never having watched beast wars, this guy looks really toonish and bubbly, if that makes any sense. but maybe that’s because my first time seeing leo prime is from perfect effect’s leonidas, which even though i know looks nothing like the cartoon, i think looks way more bad ass:

    nonetheless, since i was a sucker enough to get all but 1 of the beast wars lineup (dinobot, where the f is your amazon japan reissue!?!), i guess i’m going to preorder this guy too.

    I was actually thinking that, but I thought they'd do the other Beast Wars characters (like Rattrap and Rhinox) first.

    Damn. MP Beast Wars is starting to look good. I wish I was a millionaire. And had a bigger house......

    Hmm, not gonna lie, have no attachment to this char and might be my first original mould MP that I skip. Would have been so much better if it was someone like Jazz...Mirage...or anyone else...

    Awesomesauce!

    I was wondering how they would tackle this one since his organic parts become robotic upon transformation but they did it! Truly beautiful.

    Beast mode isn’t that good looking admittedly but it was to be expected.

    If anyone wants to catch up on Beast Wars II, the amazing subtitled version from Karyuudo Fansubs, @kary, are out there (even on the You's of Tubes ;) ), go watch them :)

    To be honest, I never finished watching the Japanese BW series, but Lio Convoy was always so majestic and eye-catching, so I was a bit taken by him.

    The possibility of MP Big Convoy at some stage is equally drooltastic

    And with this, the pressure comes right off figures like Blackarachnia and Rhinox to need redeco potential. They'll put out versions of Lio and Primal for years.

    Flash Lio Convoy, Green Flash Lio Convoy, Burning Convoy, Ghost Convoy...

    I've never watched it so that's why I have no attachment :lol  Whilst I haven't watched Beast wars Neo either, I actually like Big convoy's design more so I can see myself possibly getting one.

    Who am I kidding, I'll probably just end up getting everything in the end.

    Personally I'm looking forward to the Nemesis repaint already - and his flower accessory ;)
