Leo Prime has some surprises in the names department: the English calls out "Ancient Leo to Robot", and his Japanese title is マクシマル上級司令官 makushimaru joukyuu shireikan or "Maximal Advanced Supreme Commander", not "Cybertron". Would that connect him to his Prime incarnation?

My Lio Prime not only shipped from Amazon Japan but there was a price reduction too. Shipped from Japan is now several dollars cheaper than BBTS before shipping.

But isnt that usually the case, and why we all import figures ourselves?

So this IS Lioconvoy and not an alternate version of him?

Well, even if it is the TF:Prime version, that version was still the BWII cartoon version having dimension-hopped from one world to another and having changed his name from "Great Lio Convoy" to "Leo Prime".

No. Amazon has a lowest price guarantee that other retailers don't have. I've only used Amazon Japan once, and I saved a couple of bucks. This time I saved much more, almost $10.

Sure sure, but thats like Arcee being Rattrap's aunt (it was aunt right?). Its for the sake of this cute little continuity world and I wasnt really thinking about it.

Anywho, speaking how all the toys of Lio COnvoy are of the same guy, I thought this pic I came across was fun

Image

Also, here he is compared to Alpha Trion (not the greatest image)

Image

This image is better

Image

Its cool how they are the same height

I'd be curious to see how Leo Prime looks with Ginrai or Wave 3 Prime's head :-?

No.

So buying directly from Japan is usually not advantageous?

Um, you edited the part of my post where I explained why Amazon Japan in my opinion is better. If there's another online seller that has a low price guarantee and a flat, fast shipping option, I'm not aware. I should mention Amazon Japan is finicky about what you can order.

Hmm. I think I'll look for Alpha Trion. This Lio Convoy is handsome, and the colours/headsculpt suit it well, but as Lio Convoy it just doesn't work that well. To me, it ain't Lio Convoy without the entire lion head being used as a gigantic asymmetrical pauldron.

Now that is neat. I wonder what rails those are? Takara's Plarail line?

I think the lack of Highbrow having a head in that set strongly implies they plan to make another set - especially as the Decepticons all have different heads and so would also suit a set and they have the Orion Pax PM Optimus head to use too. (Not to mention some of the unreleased heads).

* Unless they didn't bother with Highbrow or some of the others as they thought the colours are enough of a match for the Hasbro version - so they didn't think it was worth the bother.... But like I said they have other uses so that isn't the sole concern i'd say.

I think it terms of worth the most useful would be anyone who comes with a Mini-vehicle accessory as then the 2nd head is useful to complete the function of the accessories.

Clobber/Grimlock wasn't a bad choice even though he lacked a matching body as he has the teeth moulded on his legs so he's a good fit for the mini-dinosaur moulds... and I do like to keep those little fellas in dinomode so something that allows that is always good.

I wonder if Hasbro has noticed that little Dinosaur looks rather like Tyranitron too ?

I'll miss Titanmasters when they stop making them - I hope whatever replaces them is as much fun to mess around with.

The thing with Highbrow is that unlike the others, his head isn't much different if at all from his Hasbro counterpart. It's simply that the border of his head is shaped slightly differently but not enough so to be a particularly notable difference.

Image

Compare this to Hasbro's versions of the others being different in that Chromedome has a visor, Hardhead has a mouth and Brainstorm has a mouthplate. It just wouldn't be worth releasing Hasbro Highbrow's head in a set like this because it's not different enough. Hell, to be quite honest I'm not sure why Takara bothered molding a new head for their Highbrow in the first place.

I can't imagine them not doing a second Headmaster set...I'd welcome a third, too.

I'm just hoping that, once TR and the Headmaster portion of Legends is over, somebody takes ALL the TMs, from both lines and exclusives, and does a huge group shot or two. :lol:
