Toy Review Update: New Photos and Comments for "Beast Wars Neo" Big Convoy

Years ago Ben's World of Transformers suffered a catastrophic loss of many image files and some reviews. Over the years I have tried to restore some of these whenever I could. Today I present to you my updated review for Big Convoy from "Beast Wars Neo"! In addition to new photos I have added a small but of updated commentary to the review. Enjoy!

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.

Back in July, Takara Tomy revealed a blue colored Big Convoy figure at its Wonderfest display, however no details were given on the figure beyond it being based on (but may not necesarily be a duplicate of) the Lucky Draw Big Convoy released in the 90's. This figure will be an "LG-EX" Takara Tomy Mall exclusive such as Grand Maximus. Here are some of the details from Takara Tomy Mall (via Google Translate):
