Toy News: Masterpiece MP-48 Lio Convoy revealed

The "Masterpiece" line has shown itself to be willing to jump back and forth between Generation One and the "Beast Wars" era of Transformers in its character choices. However, the latest addition to the roster is a bit of a surprise: Lio Convoy! While several characters from the "Beast Wars" era have been part of "Masterpiece" line, they have generally been from the CG animated series from the 90's and not the Anime shows from Japan.
