That's a bummer, though if they had wanted to, they could have held off on the Anime one to coincide with the Lio Convoy
Having further asked about this elsewhere, it seems that they wanted to get the anime-colored one out this year in time for the Beast Wars Neo 20th anniversary, and that its release was done in lieu of an actual MP because A) any plans for an actual MP would have taken too long for it to see release in time for the anniversary year, and B) the original toy was basically already close enough to matching the animation model almost perfectly in sculpt and detail (it just needed the cartoon colors to be completely spot on).

It's also fortunate that both the MP versions of Primal and Lio Convoy are scaled to be of equal height to the original Big Convoy mold in robot mode.

No since they dont cater to people outside Japan. BUT google can translate the pages for you.

Google can't translate PDFs, though.

Just occurred to me.... does his arm swap out for the cannon? Also; he presumably comes with his regular BFG?

For the former, the Matrix Buster encloses his arm. For the latter, yes, the Big Cannon is still included separately (even if they were the same weapon in the show), since it forms vital parts of the beast mode.
