Only available in Japan as a Toys "R" Us store exclusive, Takara's Black Lio Convoy (blue clawed version) is a rarity among Transformers toy lines, as it has the distinction of being the the first black repaint/evil clone of a Convoy (Optimus Prime) figure. Although the packaging for the exclusive remains identical to the original release, a large black and silver lion sticker featuring Comic Bom Bom's logo, distinguishes the two.
