The Hope for More MP's Out of Lio Convoy

It's late and I fail to create a better title. Basically, I'm waiting for Lio Convoy to arrive at BBTS and I'm currently rewatching the old Beast Wars 2 show. It occurs to me that we may possibly see a Black Convoy (black Lio Convoy) arise from the MP-48 mold but I'm wondering if Takara will also try a remold/retool to give us Lio Junior. It would be cool as I'm a sucker for cat mode Transformers.

What do you guys and gals think?!

Ultra-class Optimus Primal missiles, left back panel, mutant mask
Combiner Wars Dead End or Offroad HFG, Breakdown HFG
Armada Thundercracker missile
Armada Optimus front left trailer strut, cheekguards

RID Galvatron foot/dragon head, 1x launcher/sword hilt

I don't really see them doing Lio Junior that soon, especially as a retool, he'd need an all-new mold just for the head transformation... and for Magnaboss.
The resident Rewind... well, half of one :lol:

- Jelze Bunnycat =:3

Looking for:
- TR Furos and Crashbash (just heads)
- PotP Punch head
- CW Dead End, Brawl, Swindle, Vortex, among others
- Spare PotP Volcanicus hands

I doubt they would design a Lio Junior with Magnaboss in mind. From what I know, we have yet to see any MP combiners.

They've been teasing Raiden for a while now.

This isn't the main line, MPs don't generally do repaints/retools unless it makes sense. Them both being lions isn't going to be enough any more than giving red Bumblebee a Cliffjumper head would.

One repaint we can count on is this one:

Since we're already getting this:

Toy colors are possible as we got that with Primal, but Primal really likely only got that figure because it served a dual purpose as his anime model. "Toy colors" aren't really a thing with modern MPs anymore, it's all about cartoon colors.

Then there's the Lucky Draw Galvatron colors, but I doubt we'd see that unless we actually got a Galvatron figure, then they could mirror each other in a later release just for fun.
