Courtesy of TransFans Facebook we can share our first in-hand images of the new Takara Tomy Beast Wars Masterpiece MP-48 Lio Convoy.
Lio Convoy is the heroic Maximal leader in the Japanese exclusive Beast Wars II cartoon. A character which some fans may not be much familiarized, but quite popular in Japan. We have in-package images showing Lio Convoy in robot and beast mode in the front of the box. The back of the packaging features all his gimmicks and extra parts. The box also indicates that this Masterpiece has been made in China, not in Vietnam.
We also have some key shots of the robot and beast modes showing off some of Lio Convoy’s gimmicks and weapons from Beast Wars II cartoon. We can see Lio Convoy’s Lion claw attack, Lio Missiles, and the included Cybertron Blaster. We also have a shot next to Masterpiece Beast Wars Megatron for those still wondering about scale.
This figure should start shipping soon and you can still pre-order it via our sponsors links below. See all the images after the jump and then sound off on the 2005 Boards!
