We have some nice Leo Prime goodness for you today. With LG 41 Leo Prime (this is the same character as Lio Convoy, but this is the way they are spelling his name in every language this time) in the hands of a few fans, we are starting to get a lot of new info. Below you will find his four page pack in Legends comic. there was also a new Legends comic from Takara to honour his release, and it dealt with a drunken Lio Prime betting his son't lunch money at the races and losing it all (what an uplifting tale). It is the black and white comic you will find below. There is a summary of what happens in each comic below them as well (provided by TFWiki). After the comics you will see a shot of Lio Prime's back showing how he can store all his weapons at once there and you will also find a video review from Seibertron's ChuckDawg1999. We hope you enjoy all this content!

Transformers News: Takara Legends LG 43 Leo Prime Pack In Comic, Video review and More

Junior asks his dad, Lio Convoy, to buy him a Transformers toy, but he thinks they're way too expensive. Lio Convoy instead entertains his son for free by "transforming" his face into funny expressions, but once he's done lauging, Junior restates that he still wants a toy.

Later, Lio Convoy takes the 5000 yen intended for Junior's school lunches and claims he'll "transform" it 100 000 yen... by using it to gamble at the races. Instead, he ends up losing it all. Finding his dad sulking over his poor decisions in a park, Junior gently takes him back home and asks him to stop trying to transform their money.

Transformers News: Takara Legends LG 43 Leo Prime Pack In Comic, Video review and More

The travels of Leo Prime, legendary warrior from the G1 world who once fought on future Earth, have brought him to the Legends Universe to defend it from their nefarious creators, the Zamojin. Determined to protect the people of this world as thanks for supporting him in his past battles, he engages in a space duel with Katsu Don, who believes their creation has gone wrong and that its continued existence is dangerous. The Zamojin uses Nijika to absorb Leo Prime's "beast power", reverting him to his original body and causing him to fall to the planet below, crashing into the home of Lio Convoy and Lio Junior. The two believe him to be the Transformers toy Junior has been wishing for lately, and it takes some convincing before they realize he's not just a big toy with a talking gimmick.

Leo Prime explains that he's come to fight the Zamojin and why: when the Transformers realized that their adventures manifested as TV programs in the Legends world, they felt encouraged by the cheers of the children watching them and persevered through many harsh battles as a result. (He wonders if a message he left for the kids in his last appearance reached them, a question that goes unanswered as the family doesn't own a TV.) Asked about the Zamojins' motives, he begins to explain that the Legends Universe was meant as an experiment in beast power, also known as Jūchōkon, an energy that was copied from beast Transformers like him and now exists within all Legends natives. He's interrupted when Katsu Don, having found him, rips into the house and begins draining Lio Junior's beast power, prompting the normally deadbeat Lio Convoy to come to his son's defense.

Noting Convoy's willingness to fight, Leo Prime reveals that as copies of Transformers, the people of the Legends world are able to tap into their ancestral memories and become proper Transformers themselves—what they think is "Transformers sickness" is actually them unlocking their true potential! He takes Lio Convoy's hand and helps expedite the process, transforming his copy into a giant robotic lion capable of taking on Katsu Don. By scanning Twincast, Leo Prime then adopts a Headmaster form and combines with Lio Convoy into a new robot mode, having confirmed from Lio's love for his son that they are indeed the same person and should have no problem combining. Using Lio Convoy's beast power, he unleashes a series of attacks that knocks Nijika out of Katsu Don's hands and sends the Zamojin fleeing, swearing revenge.

Leo Prime chooses to remain in the Legends Universe to protect it from further Zamojin attacks, living with his new friends at their new home, which is made up of Lio Convoy's new starship mode. Lio Junior's friends are greatly impressed by his cool house... until his dad embarrasses him by transforming into lion mode when he needs to use the bathroom.

With only a couple of revealed toys left to be released in the Takara Transformers Legends line, fans were wondering when we would get new reveals or if Takara would retire the line and release toys under a new line. Well, we finally have an indication that the line will continue. A listing on Action Robo's facebook page shows us that the next release is LG 43 Trypticon. Trypticon is listed with an MSRP of 25000 yen, which is the same price point as the previous Titan figures released in Japan. So expect this figure to be sold for about 18700 Yen ($170 USD) at Japanese stores and closer to his MSRP ($225 USD) at importers.

Action Robo also states that the release date is end of August,2017.

Then if nothing is being released before Trypticon - which his numbering would indicate - then this indeed seems to confirm the idea that they're taking a break to sell the movie toys instead.

I wouldn't count on it - Metroplex and Fort Max didn't get any other partners compared to their Hasbro versions, after all.

Funny thing actually; while Takara hasn't added any partners to Titans, all three of their Titan releases so far have added extra weapons... :-?

My sentiments exactly since we still haven't gotten confirmation of a LG Sixshot, Overlord or if they're even going to make their own version of Liokaiser.

I did break down and eventually grab their version of Devastator but that wasn't until the price dropped about 30% on BBTS.

But as far as Trypticon goes. If he's not some how taller with a longer tail and darker grey, Takara can keep their version this time around.

Takara had extra weapons in their releases thats it. Smaller partners were present in both hasbro and takara versions.

The Unite Warriors line is over, and all has been revealed for that line.

I see no difference between this and people hoping to see the hasbro version of Galvatronus in a boxset getting released. Both are as likely.

I still most certainly see Sixshot, Overlord, Hot Rod and all the rest of the molds being released by Takara eventually. Again, this release date just seems to indicate to me that they're suspending their Legends line for a bit in order to focus on the Movie product.

Which basically means that my wallet will be taking a break then since that movie crap means nothing to me.

Or perhaps I'll buy that Megatronia set (or whatever she's called) if it drops down about 50%.

Didn't mind the idea of having a Decepticon fembot combiner set but "No Way" was I ever paying almost $200.00 for a re-re-repaint of what was initially Defensor 3 repaints ago.

My wallet is thankful! I only need to pay for the last two club payments and Godbomber. Then I can go back and choose things that I passed on like MPs and Liokaiser.

I couldn't care less about Galvatronus. A United Warriors Liokaiser set "DONE RIGHT" would be more plausible but if Takara doesn't think so then that's their lo$$...

They could've just included some repainted titan master vehicles as Brunt, Gasket and Grommet. Weird that they included them with the Deluxes but not the Titan size.
