The Target exclusive release of Leo Prime has been added to the Toy Gallery section. Earlier this year, a similar figure both in name and likeness was released, which can be seen here, both figures being a homage to Lio Convoy, from Beast Wars II. To view the new Leo Prime's gallery, click here.

You know what's great? I was just thinking "I wish Seibertron had a gallery of Leo Prime up before I order him off target."
:D
Thanks a bunch Ryan!

Why couldn't they just released Lio Convoy?

Trouble with licensing the mold I think, which dates back to roughly 2000, at least. Hasbro wanted to license the Lio Convoy mold for a BotCon version of Alpha Trion: a silhouette of the figure appears in the Wreckers comic. When that proved not possible, they proposed a Beast Machines Snarl repaint, but the figure never got past the hand painted mockup stage.

The gallery is a nice surprise, and it's good to see the plastic color is a shade or two off compared to Leobreaker. Mesa wants =P~

This looks great compared to the red Leo Prime that came out awhile back. i really like the white on this figure and it brings out the detail as well, but at the same time i dont like this mold either, but since its in white and i didnt like the red version, ill get this one.
Anyone know a release date????

You can get it at Target.com now, but if you mean in stores than I don't think anyone knows.

Your mind has gone crazy :P In 2000 or so, an online store called Hasbrocollectors.com offered several Japanese Beast Wars toys in the US. You're probably thinking about that.
