    Oh...a character I have zero attachment to...

    ...at least it's a Leo Prime that isn't a terrible toy for once?

    Devil on shoulder: But it's a Prime. You need it.

    ...oh gorsammit.

    I wasn’t going to dip in the MP Beast Wars pond, but this may be my undoing. I had them all back in college, American and Japanese, and I really leaned toward Neo more. I always liked their Convoys better than Primal. Beast Wars revived my Transformer collecting right when I thought it was dead and had all of my G1 boxed up and put away. So much respect to Beast Wars.

    I'll pass on this one; I have no attachment to the Japanese Beast Wars shows outside of their inclusion in some Western continuity. I'm happy for everyone that's anticipating this though. I wonder if Takara can handle MP releases for four different Transformers series.

    Hopefully not. I’m hoping it’s just a mistransformation or a display choice to not have parts rub, etc.

    That sounds like a good theory. It would just seem weird handling him if he had those beefy lion arms still attached to his forearms!

    Yup, but only in Neo.

    The easiest answer is to watch the 2 series to know the characters - Karyuudo Fansubs 狩人ファンサブ

    Sadly, between school and work, no time to.invest in such endeavors. I'm sure your group has done amazing work, though.

    Does he? Looks to me like he has plenty. Ankle swivel, ankle tilt, plus tilt up and down and rocker on the toes (which may or may not connect to his spurs).

    MP-48-Lio-Convoy-01.jpeg
    (please excuse the crudely drawn arrows)

    I'd expect some alterante faces for beats mode...maybe a more toy accurate one? They might save that for a repaint. Then any weapons/items he regularly uses (i have to admit I need to watch more of the show) and then something he used once that no one cares about but can be packed it to justify the prices...and if in doubt chuck in a stand and add another 5000 yen on.

    True, but this is clearly a companion piece to MP-38 which did have straight black plastic. Like it or loathe it (I do both equally) TT make all MPs to be show accurate. If he has no texture or visible fur in the show he isn't going to have nay on the MP.

    I doubt that. like @Digger said closer to Dinobot price, hopefully a little lower. I'm predicting 20000 - 25000 yen...but im going to go further and say its gonna be 24000. Thats right double what they charged for MP Primal because....

    LOL Without any irony at all that could have come straight out of the mouth of so many posters here ;)

    Literally one of the characters ive been wanting a good representation of for a long time. I thought they would give him a figure in modern generations because of his obscurity so i never thought of masterpiece. I guess im glad they did this instead.

    Is he really that obscure though? He's had, like, 3 retail US releases and a couple con exclusives. That's more than Star Saber can claim and he got the MP first

    I see. $200 US is like $291 for me. It’d be pretty ideal.
    I was wondering where his rocker would be. I guess he’ll have a toe tilt. But I wouldn’t be lying if I said I was hoping for a joint up at his ankle.
