Ultra Magnus

Leo Prime

Shockwave

And for good measure:

Fall of Cybertron Grimlock (Hasbro)

Fall of Cybertron Blaster (Hasbro)

Looks like LP isn't quite as bright of a yellow as previous pics seemed to show. Hopefully this lets him blend in with Leo Prime's gold/orange a little bit better.

Leo Prime's bio mentions Unicron, Energon Matrix, and... "Great Lio Convoy"?

Darn, I may just end up getting Magnus and the Thundertron mold again. Hopefully, Grimlock's gold is less yellow in person. And Blaster's bio is awesome.
Because you're worth it.

Leo Prime's bio.

QUOTE
Leo Prime, who has suddenly appeared on present-day Earth, is a Transformer Elder and he travelled from a dimension far away when he sensed the menace of Unicron. In his original world, he was a supreme commander known as "Great Lio Convoy".
He does not interfere with the battle between Optimus Prime and Megatron in order to prevent the confusion in time and space, but if Unicron awakes again he will wield his Ancient Sword to stop the force of evil.


Also, no love for Red Alert NightViper? icon-fire.gif

"Glowing eyes and mouth"!? does that mean lights? Oh Primus I hope so.

I'm not a fan of voting on peoples posts. it just seems very passive aggressive to click 'down vote' and not add anything to the thread. and up votes are exactly the same. to my mind the whole point of a forum is discussion and being able to just easily agree or disagree takes the discussion out of the equation.

I'm both impressed and indifferent towards this. I like how he's actually got a backstory and ended up being an established character, but at the same time, I guess I was hoping for an Aligned Continuity incarnation of Lio Convoy instead of the same exact guy having dimension-hopped and gotten a new body.

Any translations for Ultra Magnus and Shockwave's bios? icon-arcee.gif

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

Translation:

Leo Prime
Function: Maximal High Commander

Suddenly appearing on present-day Earth after sensing the threat of Unicron, Leo Prime is a Transformer elder who has crossed over from a distant dimension. On his former world, he was a revered high commander known as Great Lio Convoy. In order to avoid a space-time disturbance, he refrains from interfering in the battle between Optimus Prime and Megatron. However, should Unicron awaken once again, he has vowed to use his ancient sword, drawing power from his Energon Matrix, to put a stop to the evil force.

I infer that to mean that after BW Neo, Lio Convoy became the leader of the restored Cybertron, taking the deceased Great Convoy's place.

Well, that is what the 2006/2007 Kiss Player timeline said, so yeah.

The function just represents Lio Convoy some time after ascending to the rank of Great Convoy at the end of Neo,
and doesn't necessarily mean he's the sole leader.

I translated the Japanese here rather literally as "high commander," but "Maximal Councillor" might be
more appropriate, given the context that he is a member of the Convoy Council in his home dimension.

I was excited to have the first opportunity to use the word "Maximal" in Japanese TFs, as far as I know...
