Thanks to an image posted by Darkstone on the TFW2005 boards, we have word that the upcoming MP-48 Lio Convoy is going to be coming with an extra figure much like a lot of the recent Masterpiece figures, but in this case we are getting a truly unique one in the form of Beast Wars II Artemis!

For those who might not know, Artemis and her partner Moon were stationed on the Moon of Gaia, where they observed the events of Beast Wars II and reported in on it, and even starred in a send-off segment at the end of each episode. Moon received a figure back during that Beast Wars II time, but Artemis never got that pleasure. So this means that this will be the first figure ever for her, and she even includes her hammer that she hits Moon with!

This image comes to us from a Figure King magazine tease, so we should know more very shortly on what type and number of accessories Lio Convoy will come with. Could a little Moon figure also be in the works to come with Lio as well?

Let us know you thoughts in the comments section below!

For those wondering what exactly Artemis and Moon are, they are androids.

We may not need to, depending on her size. Moon already got a toy, transforming too:

Around the size of a Basic, so if Artemis is tall enough, they're in scale :-D

Just keep her away from Starscream and Scuba. ;)

Eh, not like she ever got to meet either in person, though. Just admired them both from afar. :P

Okay. That little Artemis figure is striking my inner week in the best way possible. :x
If there is effectively a little Moon figure too, that may just seal the deal for me to finally get a Beast Wars MP figure. Even if I never watched the original show.

I take it she doesn't transform?
Like how, should MP Silverbolt ever happen, he would come with Transmutate.

Of course not. She's not a transformers after all. Still, she do have articulation points everywhere. I just hope that she will be in scale with Lio.

Initially, when the word 'android' was thrown in as a descriptive, I assumed she wasn't. Then when you mentioned her "companion" Moon did transform, I had to check.

Moon is also an android. It was just never explained how/why he was able to transform like a Transformer.

Also, Moon is tiny compared to the Maximals, so Artemis would need to be as well (NOTE: Not my pics).

Artemis is the same scale to Lio Convoy as Blackarachnia to Megatron... Something about that amuses me.

I want a clear shot of the Artemis figure next to MP Lio to see the scale.
If it's super small, a tiny transformable Moon could still be possible because Moon basically just lay on all four to "transform".

A Legion class Moon figure would be delightful.

Oh i know, but I really don't want to have to track down little Moon, I'd rather just get a nice little new one with Lio!

I wish, and that would be nice, but I doubt they'd do that unfortunately

Yeah, the more recent non-G1 Encores feel like they were done for this year being the 35th anniversary of the brand, and that the ones that were chosen were specifically because they were either Convoys or staples of the brand like Unicron.

Takara Transformers MP-48 Lio Convoy looked pretty cool when he was revealed. Especially when we realized that his lion head and mane transformed from cartoony organic to robotic. The price had yet to be confirmed though, but now the listing is up at Takara Tomy Mall. The price is 21600 Yen, which comes out to a little over $200 USD. While that may not be the exact price people will be buying it at (since this includes Japanese consumer tax), it is a clear indication of the price point. Be prepared to see a similar price at importers like BBTS and TFSource and something closer to the $150 mark on Amazon Japan (not including shipping and importing fees).

This item will be released at the end of February 2020. The listing also gave us many new images, which we have for you below, enjoy!

If you want a sense of scale, here he is next to Optimus Primal, who was half the price.

This figure is a true work of art!
But I will skip, having never have owned the original nor had any emotional attachment for the character.

If this is available on Amazon Japan I'll pick it up. I've always kinda liked Lio Convoy and this is the best look MP Beast Wars figure thus far. I think it has to do with the design being based on 2D animation.
