BEAST WARS is back with another entry into the Masterpiece line – Lio Convoy. MP-48’s king of the jungle goes from lion to heroic Prime. He was a main character and leader of the Maximals in the Japanese only Beast Wars II series, even interacting with Optimus Primal in the cell shaded cartoons. He was super popular in the late 90s & early 2000’s since he didn’t really have a presence here in the States but was a Prime and pretty cool looking head to toe. He spawned countless repaints which we can only assume are coming now that he’s in Masterpiece form. I never fully got into the Japanese Beast shows, but did enjoy running this guy through the motions for the photo shoot. He’s got a great hero stance in robot mode and the colors pop with stark red, blue, yellow and whites. The classic Prime head sculpt seals the deal. Originally he was going to be an in-and-out purchase, but he’s gonna chill here for a bit with the rest of the Maximals since Megatron and Black Arachnia are looking shady over there. 🙂
He’s in stock now and shipping from TFSource!
