I'm intrigued by your statement. What would make it Lio Prime for you? A head-swap? This might be a rather bad comparison, but recall how drastically Optimus Primal (and pretty much everyone else except Megatron) changed from Beast Wars to Beast Machines? Judging by head-sculpt and color scheme, BM Optimus Primal could have been a completely new character, were it not for the show establishing that it IS in fact Primal.
Conversely, Big Convoy bears startling resemblance to Lio Convoy, Beast Convoy, and Convoy. Yet are they all the same characters?
I, for one, don't care too much for the Star Seekers, so don't mind calling the repaint "Lio Prime." I'll just create a story in my head wherein "Lio Prime goes back to a reformated technorganic Cybertron and as such must be reformatted."
