    Now THAT'S a reveal. I don't think ANYONE would have predicted that LIO CONVOY would be the next MP! No leaks; no rumours; just a brand new, fully finished figure of a character I would never have expected anywhere near this soon. Credit where credit's due, Takara.

    At this point I feel like nothing is completely off the table. Full steam ahead with Beast Wars -- not just season 1 but any BW characters from any era -- and from there it isn't too far to Japan's post-BW back-to-vehicles reboot, Car Robots... maybe I'll actually see my pipe dream of an MP Rail Racer one day...

    The Transformers world is so much bigger than just G1, and it's great to see the MP line embrace that. (Just don't forget about Jazz.)

    Damn, this is really tempting me back to mp beast wars, but the price is probably going to be prohibitive

    I'm down for that. Car Robots in general, Fire Convoy and Gigatron would be sick.

    I'm just amused at how happy the lion mode looks, and then you got the serious killer looking robot head. Talk about robot in disguise. :lol

    Not sold on the beast mode. Robot mode looks pretty ace though!
    Hopefully the beast mode will look better from other angles.

    Might get if the price is right.

    Agreed. I think it's a combination of the very animated lion face, the broken-up panel mane and the rather long legs. The legs might look better if you bend them a little but still.

    It's not turning me off as much as Blackarachnia’s spider-ball mode admittedly but it's not great either.

    But for the amazing robot mode, no even just for the idea of a Masterpiece Lio Convoy with a lion head that turns inside out - I can accept it.

    Excellent question actually, a G2 Megatron would be really cool and could fit right in with Lio Convoy.

    Yeah you hit the nail on the head. The long legs make it look funky. Will probably look better when posed.

    The engineering and transformation on this thing look terrific and heaps of fun though!

    That beast mode, yeah. Maybe there is such a thing as being too cartoon accurate.

    Can't help but wonder if they'll reissue MP-38 to go along with him, like they did with MP-32 when Megatron came out. He's not to difficult to get anyway but a discounted reissue would not go to waste from where I'm standing.
