Default More pics of RM Black Lio Convoy

Yes, I know that TFormers reported that he was "released in Asia" a few weeks ago, but all the online stores I checked still have him listed for preorder with a February 2006 release date, so I assume they just saw some images of the toy and for some weird reason concluded that he was "out". :rolleyes:

I guess I don't know the story behind this....

Why does he still have a Maximal symbol on his chest? Is he not a Decepticon/Destron/Predacon? Or is this guy not a Nemesis Prime/Black Convoy/Scourge type character?

Well, whatever he is...he's pretty damned sweet.

He has a Maximal symbol on his chest because he is a repaint of RM Lio Convoy, who had a molded Maximal symbol on his chest.

I thought he repainted himself or was changed by nebulon or that energy the series is all about. He is just working with the destrons to get info. Or maybe not. That's the story for all the other cybertron black repaints. I don't see him as anything special though, I'd rather have the original which I passed up... It was a steal, same price as an energon deluxe.

IS there a story behind the black Robotmasters actually? as RM has it's own general story, that's why Beast Convoy is an Autobot at the same size as G1 Convoy

Lagnua posted the bios of the black magazine exclusives at TFW2005 many many months ago.

In short, the first four black Robot Masters (G1 Convoy, Beast Convoy, Beast Megatron, and Starscream) all applied a black coating to their bodies in order to power themselves up. However, the process happened to be flawed, causing the Transformers to go dangerously insane while they wore the coating.
As Ravimus Prime supposed, the second batch of black Robot Masters (Star Saber and Victory Leo) were colored black so they could infiltrate the Destrons, presumably because, thanks to having just joined the Robot Masters scenario, they were the least likely to be recognized by the Destrons.
Leo Convoy has had a Nemesis Prime-style repaint of his earlier toy before, to represent Black Leo Convoy, a clone created by the Destrons in an episode of Beast Wars 2. Whether this new Black Leo Convoy is meant to represent this clone or something else entirely has yet to be revealed.
