Where did that Star saber sword come from with the reversed blade?
It’s a Dr. Wu product called Skybreaker that came out a while ago. By now ebay would probably be your best option if you want one.
thats not Dr Wu Skybreaker. I got 3 of them. Dr Wu's version isn't reversed like that.
His is just like on the show. (small blade closest to the hand guard). The one the Lio figure is holding is reversed. (larger blade closest to the guard)
Ah, my mistake.
Might be the Star Saber that came with the APC Optimus Prime mold. I think the blade on that was reversible.
The story behind him
遥か遠い未来のG1世界、セイバ一トロン星ではグレ一トコンボイが指導者となる時代が終わり新たなプライムが台頭、プライムリ一ダ一と名乗り星々を統治していた。グレ一トライオコンボイもマキシマル上級司令官レオプライムとして名前と姿を変え、異世界のトランスフォ一マー達を助ける任務に就いていたが、宇宙崩壊の影がトランスフォーマー達の世界に忍び寄っていた。しかし、その宇宙を崩壊から救える唯一の存在、伝説の英雄レオプライムは既に戦いに敗れ、ライオンモ一ドで亡骸となりセイバートロン星に安置されていた。そんな危機を食い止めるべく、ベク夕一シグマの命を受けた万能ウエポナイザ一「ブル一ボルト」はレオプライムを蘇らせるため地球へ向かい、地下に眠るエネルギ一でライオコンボイを再生パワ一アップする作戦を実行する。だがその計画は、それが宇宙を食べ尽くそうとした悪魔ユニクロンのアンゴルモアエネルギ一と知りつつの危険な賭けだったのだ。地球に到着した ブル一ボルトは残されたアンゴルモアエネルギ一をレオ プライムの体内に注入するが、アンゴルモア エネルギーは長い時の中、地殻で高濃度に圧縮されており漆黒のダ一クエネルギ一と化してしまっていた。復活したライオンロボはダークアンバ一レオプライムと名乗り、自らユニクロンの生まれ変わりである事を認め崩壊寸前だった地球を再生しその秘めたるパワ一を露わにする。ダ一クアンバ一レオプライムはその体に邪悪なエネルギ一を秘めながら胸のプライムリ一ダ一たる証エネルゴンマトリクスの導きに促されながら宇宙崩壊を食い止める運命の旅に出たのだった。 ダ一クアンバ一レオプライムの基本機能や武装はグレ一トライオコンボイたるレオブライムに準じているが、その性能や威力は体内のアンゴルモアエネルギ一をコントロ一ルする事で一気に数倍に跳ね上げる事が可能だ。ユニクロン由来のエネルギ一で復活したためか、 非常に粗暴かつ暴れん坊な性格ではあるが、エネルゴンマトリクスの制御のためか義理深く宇宙崩壊の危機を救う使命を忘れる事は無い。
That’s a real nice variation on the “Nemesis Prime/Black Convoy” scheme.
It's funny how they didn't change the face sculpt at all so he just looks like this
Very rough translation:
In the G1 World in the distant future, on the planet Cybertron, the era of Great Convoy as the leader has ended and a new Prime has risen. The Great Lio Convoy also changed its name and appearance as Maximal Senior Commander Leo Prime, and was on a mission to help the Transformers in another world, but the shadow of the collapse of the universe was creeping into the world of Transformers. However, the only one who can save the universe from collapse, the legendary hero Leo Prime, has already lost the battle and has become a corpse in lion mode and enshrined on the planet Cybertron. In order to stop such a crisis, the all-purpose weaponizer "Bluebolt", ordered by Vector Sigma, heads to Earth to revive Leo Prime, and uses the energy sleeping underground to regenerate and power up Lio Convoy. However, the plan was a dangerous gamble, knowing that it was the Angolmois energy of the evil Unicron who tried to eat up the universe. Arriving on Earth, his Bluebolt injects the remaining Angolmois energy into Leo Prime's body, but Angolmois energy has been highly concentrated in the earth's crust for a long time and turns into a jet-black datum. It had become a single energy. The resurrected Lio Convoy takes the name of Dark Amber Leo Prime, admits himself to be the reincarnation of Unicron, regenerates the Earth, which was on the verge of collapse, and reveals its hidden power. Leo Prime, who has evil energy hidden in his body, embarked on a destined journey to stop the collapse of the universe, urged by the guidance of the Energon Matrix, which is the proof of the Prime of his chest. Dark Amber Leo Prime's basic functions and armament conform to those of the Great Lio Convoy, Leo Prime, but its performance and power can be boosted several times by controlling the Angolmois energy within its body. It is possible. Perhaps because he was resurrected with the energy from Unicron, he has a very rough and violent personality, but perhaps because of his control of the Energon Matrix, he never forgets his mission to save the universe from the collapse.
What the heck is with that Black/Purple B'boom/Apache?
Basically he's Vegeta
woah are you sure about that? I seem to remember it was possible to display the beast mode lion head in robot mode but was pretty sure it wasn’t possible to use the angular head for beast mode. Do you have photos of how it looks @Throway?
Looking great! Love the nemesis Leo Prime monochrome black, silver and teal oh him. Bought!
Not to derail, but I do hope the rumored upcoming Voyager "Nemesis Leo Prime" looks this good.
There he is!
The colors look pretty awesome on this guy, plus I love the backstory / profile he was given.
The backstory is pretty good, but is seems like a missed opportunity not to have the beast face sitting in the mane whispering things into his ear in robot mode. If Lioconvoy is his guiding heart in that matrix, Unicron should be whispering poison into his ear from the lion face.
