Back in June it was revealed that Takara Tomy would be releasing Lio Convoy as a Masterpiece figure! Originally featured in the "Beast Wars II" series in Japan, this character has received the homage treatment several times over the years, but this is the first time in a while he has received an original design/release all his own!

This time we get to see the figure actually being transformed.
