    Don't get me wrong, I like the new "Overlord", but I think there is a better mold for him.


    I think he looks a bit War Within, but overall I think he looks Classic-ish enough.

    Since I couldn't find a dencent face to use for him, I gave him a faceplate to homage that Overlord KO with a Star Saber head and shoulders.

    So, whaddaya think?

    EDIT: Added Version 2.

    This is what one would think hasbro would do for a quick buck. But it seems botcon deems leader class to costly to do. Hasbro seemingly is afraid of doing a leader or supreme that isn't Bumblebee or a prime. Still shocked over DOTM ironhide. But it looks great Shatterpoint!

    Thanks!

    And thank you for being honest.

    My goal was to create an Overlord that

    1. Was 2 vehicles that combined.

    2. Was large in size.

    3. Had enough nods to the original toy.

    And finally,

    4. Be something that could be official, wich according to SW Mk2, I succeeded in.

    I dig the concept... but it's not something Botcon would ever do. Great digi, tho.

    Now I'm wondering what a Tidal Wave done in Overlord colors would look like.

    - Large
    - Minicons can replace Powermasters
    - Splits into vehicles
    - Can become a single flying vehicle
    - Can become a base and even another base

    Honestly, my first reaction was 'that totally wouldn't work'. but yeah, after taking 5 seconds to process it, it does fit with overlord, huge, turns into two vehicles and the headmaster could stand in well for his powermaster gimmick.

    Smart thinking.

    Put an Overlord face on the headmaster, and I could see it.

    I agree, this is where the botcon head would look really great. Maybe even remolding of the hands or something... I don't know.

    More... blue- what the botcon one DID do right was the colors, but despite all my critique I think you're on the right path.

    Cybertron Megatron makes a pretty good Overlord without a new head. Take the head from the Botcon version and stick it on that and you've got a damn good Overlord.

    I kinda like the idea of Armada/Energon Tidalwave being used for Overlord. Slight mode to the head

    Thank you all for your opinions.

    I've created a second version with more blue and a face.

    The face looks small due to having to add "sideburns" to avoid him having a dough face.

    I don't like it.....but I love that your idea.:) 

    I think Energon Megatron is a good choice because:

    1:Two alt. modes.

    2:The second alt. mode fits on his arm.

    3:Has the huge cannon thingy on his shoulders.

    4:Head looks pretty close to Overload.

    5:He is pretty big.

    the colors look nice in robot mode, but definitely needed a new head. however, i think the mold would simply be too big for overlord. yes, he's a big character especially in lsotw, but omega supreme is enormous and towers over just about everyone.

    Keep in mind that Tidal Wave has the possibility of combining with Armada Megatron - which is already a tank! It's not a 1-1 update, but I think both figures would work really well together with some modification.

    I use Cyb Megatron as my "stand-in" for Overlord some. Again, not a 1-1 update, but for the reasons mentioned, I think it works well.

    Energon Omega Supreme is, well Omega Supreme. Without heavy modification he's still very much Omega Surpeme. Even though Overlord is big, he's not Omega Supreme big.

    Interesting idea but he's too big for FunPub or Hasbro to do....
