Lio Convoy in Imminent Danger is the 3rd part of Beast Wars Special Super Lifeform Transformers, a theatrical movie in Japan.




Above the Planet Gaea, where Lio Convoy and his Maximals are fighting the Beast Wars against Galvatron and his Predacons, a strange ship appears. It disrupts a battle between the Jointrons and the Seacons, crash-landing on the planet.

The ship was created long ago by a race of technologically-advanced creatures. Within the ship is a device that can control space-time and pluck living creatures from any point in history. Needless to say, Galvatron wants it pretty bad. Lio Convoy sends Lio Junior to protect the ship from the Predacons until reinforcements can arrive. However, due to his inexperience, he is trounced by Hellscream and Max-B. The Predacons use the device to attempt to find find "Megatron", however, Megastorm bungles the wavelength calculations and instead they summon-forth Majin Zarak, a titanic battleship Transformer from the past who is virtually indestructible. Galvatron is delighted, taunting Lio Junior that "thanks to you, we obtained a weapon superior to Megatron".

Wanting to make ammends and prove his maturity, Lio Junior combines with Santon and Skywarp, forming Magnaboss. He valiantly fights the Predacons away from the ship and uses the very last of his power and strength to summon an alley with the time-space machine.

On the battle field, the Maximals are getting trashed by the might of Majin Zarak. However, Majin Zarak eventually tires of Galvatron's orders and the incompetence of the Predacons. He tosses them out, proving to have a sentient intelligence he hadn't displayed before. Majin Zarak goes wild and all hope seems lost.


Superlifeform Teamup!

Then, suddenly, Optimus Primal appears. Everyone is surprised to see him, as the Maximals had thought Optimus Primal and his crew dead. Primal and Lio Convoy team-up and keep Majin Zarak occupied while the rest of the Maximals try to figure out his weakness. After a bit of research, they discover that the third eye on his forehead is where all his nerve-endings are clustered. The only way to defeat Majin Zarak is to strike there, and strike hard!

Optimus Primal and Lio Convoy use the power of their Energon Matrices to transform themselves into Flash Lio Convoy and Burning Convoy. They deliver a healthy bit of damage to Majin Zarak before unleashing the power of their Matrices and combine the energy into the "Double Matrix Blast". The powerful attack pierces Majin Zarak's eye, killing him on the spot.

The battle won, Lio Convoy and the Maximals ask Optimus Primal to stay with them. However, he declines as he wishes to continue fighting his own Beast Wars on prehistoric Earth. Optimus Primal returns home using the device on the space ship. After he leaves, the Maximals then destroy the machine so that it can never be used again.

Which Megatron?

It is unclear which "Megatron" Galvatron and his crew intended to summon across time and space. Once Galvatron instructed his brother to "Search for the wavelength of Megatron in the memory bank", he announced "Now we can summon the greatest and most vicious Transformer in history". Galvatron later described Majin Zarak as "a weapon superior to Megatron". A toy catalog states that Beast Wars Megatron and Galvatron were rivals, but whether the writers knew or cared about it isn't known. Japan had a tendency to occasionally 'forget' that Beast Wars Megatron and Convoy (Optimus Primal) were separate characters from their Generation 1 counterparts, so that may also be a factor in the ambiguity.

Thanks for helping me... pull myself together.
