    If only Energon had an idea that endearing.

    Interesting. I guess I’ll like BWN more. I’ll see what happens in the show.
    I don’t think so. No more than dinobot.
    I know right!? So much stuff could happen.

    Another MP for the Want list, but sadly just shy of Need. If I had any more of a connection to the character than the Club Orion Pax retool and attendant fiction then I'd be all over it. But that's 100% more connection than I have for any previous BWMP, none of which I have yet, so I guess he's jumped to the front of that list for me.

    He better not even be that much, he's the same size as Primal for Primus' sake.

    I knew this would be a MP figure.  I would say that the Galvatron figure will be next after this.

    "Yeah but, you see, it's a more niche item, because there's less BWII fans and, uh, it's probably lower run or something, and, um... the figure is gonna be mostly painted I think, and the engineering is more elaborate kind of, and, uh, just ignore the fact that there's plenty of niche collectibles of outstanding quality out there that aren't costing folks an arm and a leg. It's justified somehow, I promise!"

    Now you know that's a lie.

    Paint chip MP, pretty standard practice. I fully expect it for this guy too.

    With all the MP pricing going on recently, I fully expect Lio Convoy to be between Dinobot and Megatron

    Probably will be too expensive for me

    I found an episode called Illusion? Lio Convoy, which shows them to be the same height in bot-mode.

    No, I'm cool with this, I don't mind him sticking out a bit.
    He better be.
    Kimba The white lion is the most expensive out of all the MP licencing deals!
    There always knock-offs!

    That reads like "days without incident" safety work signs.

    And I looked it up, the toy is a little shorter than Lio Convoy’s. Makes up for it in sheer gimmicks and total mass.

    Ah right. Well yeah I guess he’ll look okay. I think he’ll also look cool with G1 MPs since he’s rooted in traditional animation like them.
    There’s gonna be preorder discounts and whatever. Also he’ll probably decrease in value. It should be fine.

    I'm more interested in how the body shapes look together than the colours and it works really well form that perspective.

    I hope I can one cheaper than 200 US because that's still bs expensive in my local currency.

    It would make for a great side collection. Three Supreme Commanders, all the same height.
