    So I’m more than likely picking this guy up. The bot mode is just way too regal looking to pass up, just screams the essence of leader to me. However, if I do have 1 nitpick about it, it would be the position of the lion mane shoulder guard. I’m hoping it can sit just a tad lower. I know it’s high and prominent in the show, but I think these pics have it just a bit too high. Like I said, minor off-put, but not enough to keep me away.

    Although now I’m really mad for passing on mp-38, especially when he was being discounted last Christmas season so much. I should’ve sprung for him had I known this was coming. But I figured he was a one off repaint and 32 would be plenty to of Primal for me *sigh* oh how wrong I was.

    I've been looking into this a little myself - AFAIK, BW II and BW Neo, were set in different locations (and possibly different times, due to all the whacky time travel shenanigans in Transformers ) and starring different casts.

    So I imagine it as Season 1 of BW finishes, and a big transition card comes up:
    "Meanwhile, elsewhere in space and time..."
    and they then follow the adventures of an intrepid kitty bot followed by... I dunno a mammoth or something.
    And then at the end of both of those series, another transition card comes up
    "We now return to our intrepid adventurers in Earths prehistoric past..." and they go into Season 2.

    If there's kibble on the back of the Lion mode, that's okay because that was in the anime.

    I'm not joking, it was.

    I may be speaking out of turn but this may just seem weird from a western perspective. Don't franchises like Gundam or Macross have multiple separate or tangent continuities that are visited/revisited over and over? I suspect it wasn't seen as jarring for Japanese fans as we might expect. Although by the time they got around to Beast Machines they'd definitely left it WAY too late.

    Optimus Primal is technically a Convoy too, so you'll have to apologize to the BW-fans as well :p

    I don't think they even did that, aside from the brief explanation included with the pack-in material of the first BWII toys, the first season ends with the same "to be continued?" ending and the next show just starts up after that.


    They do, and stuff like the Sentai shows have a new story and cast almost annually, so viewers are used to it.

    It's really not all that different than say going from RID to Cyberverse was for us, just on a shorter schedule since in Japan they don't really do things like months of reruns, the new shows just start up and run their course til the end with the occasional clip show tossed in to fill time and give the animators a break (as many weekly Japanese animated shows are actually produced only a few weeks in advance if that).

    Probably:
    • Extended tail whip
    • Lion face guns for robot mode
    There's a couple more IIRC that I think I vaguely remember from the anime.

    Don't for the "That one thing form that one episode" accessory. I'v never seen all of BW2 so I don't know what it could be.

    I don’t think Lio Convoy had a tail whip? Lio Junior used his tail as a weapon but that was more like a hand-held claw on a rod than a whip.

    And yes, that's from Figure Oh so expect more pictures coming soon!

    Not too surprising, maybe this Artemis will be the breadth and width of his accessories.

    Oh cool! She even has her hammer. Hope she scales well with the Moon that was released in the original line.
