    Gonna preorder next month. I too am hoping that they'll make this into a toy rather than a collectable figure.

    While it looks nice, im not feeling this color scheme. The original leo prime deco makes the mold pop more. Love the claws though.

    I think the darker theme is a good idea, but I'd appreciate it more if the colors did pop out as well. Give it some teal colorways. :D

    i love it and also the 300 nod that is used for them.

    Good => Leonidas
    Evil => Xerxes

    I just want the QC on this one to be improved. I think the original looked stunning but the reports of breakages and looseness really put me off. I'm praying that they are resolved on this version, because then I'll be all over it.

    I just want him to have a thicker/filled out chest. Don't like the anorexic look.

    I think he looks absolutely perfect, lean cut look, but not overly beefy

    I think the deco is a nod to the Zoids Energy Liger with a little bit of teal added for the Black=Nemesis reference. The canon Black Lio Convoy deco is black and grey, no teal. The toy only has a little bit of teal but it wasn't considered a Nemesis. I don't think they were making Nemesis repaints at that time either.

    yeah i def have always seen the energy liger influence and i guess teal makes since when considering it to be a "nemesis character" but i just feel like the black lio convoy look would be better to diff the nemesis characters in my nemesis collection, also there have been some awesome nemesis cws for lion characters like nemesis breaker, go black lio who this will be replacing on my counsel, in the end i don't have but one nemesis character that has red on him and that FP Shadow Scythe, so i guess this is at least diff in that way

    Same for me, the black makes him look very thin compared to Leonidas...
