It's been almost 20 years since I got the original Lio Convoy toy from Takara. At the time that was a great little toy. I'd soon get sick of how Beast Wars was being handled in the U.S. and sell off all my Beast toys, but as time has gone on I kept wanting another Lio Convoy. The character has gone through some changes, had other minor releases but to be honest none has really caught my full attention. Leave it to the Titans Return/Legends series to finally get another Lio Convoy, now named Leo Prime into my toy collection.

The toy is the Japanese TakaraTomy release of the Hasbro Titans Return Alpha Trion mold done up in Beast Wars Second Lio Convoy styling. It works. It actually works extremely well. Even better than Alpha Trion I feel. The Titans and Legends lines have had me from the get go. But my collecting of the toys has been jumbled a bit. I haven't been able to collect in order, and I haven't exactly stuck to my original purchasing plans. The Alpha Trion toy wasn't even in my line of sight, but I bought it on a whim when I first seen it. I'm glad I did, because I think it's a great toy. Because of that I knew I'd just go ahead and pre-order Leo prime the second it went up for sale. There's been a lot of complaints about Alpha Trion as a lion, and even a few complaints that the mold doesn't exactly work for Leo Prime. It's a fun mold, it doesn't bother me for either character, and I'm a guy who thinks Alpha Trion has never needed another form outside of his old G1 robot-centric design.

This toy also features the awesome sword that Alpha Trion came with, and it's still absolutely gorgeous in this release. TakaraTomy also included a rifle that Alpha Trion didn't have, a re-color of Astrotrain's gun. It doesn't really work, at least mine doesn't. The peg is too small, and kind of hangs in there super loose, flopping about. Doesn't matter, with that sword all other weapons are pointless.

Okay, on to another of my favorite parts, the Headmaster. This is the same main body that was used for both Sentinel Prime, ConvoBat and Astrotrain. The head mode faceplate is the same as Sentinel Prime and ConvoBat as well. One minor gripe here, the red paint used for the robot's arms and legs is too thin to cover the blue plastic and looks "cheap" because of it. It needed a white primer, or a more opaque paint.

 I've been hesitant on some of the Legends releases, like Astrotrain, but I'm very happy with Leo prime and glad I didn't waste any time in getting him. It looks like he's still available for a great price, if you haven't made up your mind yet, I'd say give him a shot.
