You know, with Hero Prime's bio making him be G2 Manga one-shot G2 Convoy, ya'll know who I'm hoping the Leobreaker-redeco Universe Leo Prime turns out to be? IDW Lio Convoy. Why? Well, a few reasons.
The first being the obvious. Universe Leo Prime's toy bio reflected that of the IDW character, despite the toy being named "Leo Prime" and the comic character named "Lio Convoy". Sure, one could just simply brush this discrepancy aside by saying "Well, the U.S. name wasn't fully made clear for the character at the time, so the Japanese name was used for the comic." I'm aware of this. But that brings me to point number 2.
Making him the IDW character with the name "Leo Prime" would be an excellent American parallel to what was done for the Japanese TF: Prime AM-28 Leo Prime toy. With that toy, its bio made the "Leo Prime" toy into an upgraded form of the BWII Lio Convoy cartoon character, establishing him as a post-Beast Wars Neo Convoy Council elder having succeeded the deceased Great Convoy as "Great Lio Convoy". And with his new TF: Prime body came a new name for himself.
The Universe toy could serve as a similar body upgrade to the IDW version of the character, and would explain his new name as having simply come with his new form. Therefore, America's comic Lio Convoy would be upgrading into the body of a toy with a new name, just as Japan's cartoon Lio Convoy had done when he upgraded into the body of his new-named TF: Prime toy.
