    the box is surprisingly small, in comparison to trypty's and sixshot's box

    the size of overlord's jet mode is surprisingly large - good for about a foot - , jetfire shown here for comparison

    lastly, base mode, which is the best feature of the toy. its transformation requires lots of flaps and hidden parts; the base mode basically has more tricks than a tijuana hooker...so i've been told.

    "for the last time giga, i am not done with the golf cart!"

    i only need scorponok/black zarak to complete my city/basebot collection. maybe then i'll do a full on diorama.

    Yay for another Overlord owner! :hasslehoff
    Congrats! That's the version I have and it smells terrific!
    Your box looks all smoothe.

    Really enjoyed those city pics. You should kick off a city thread with those.
    Used to love citypics and hardly anyone does them anymore.
    Which is suprising with all these Minicons.

    Hoping someone pulled off a convincing one with GF Metroplex.

    But yeah, your Overlord looks like it's in perfect shape, so shiny.

    ive done a fort max one, a metroplex one and now overlord.

    i still need to do one for trypticon and omega. if i ever find the time and space (the toy room is currently being used for storage), its gonna be total toygasm.

    i should get some carpeting tho'. pics on parquet look so whack.

    Welcome to the Overlord owners club. ;) 

    I am soo jealous of your minty Trypticon box. Mine's all banged up and have flaps, creases, everything. And I so want that jap Overlord box the Euro one just can't compare. :thumbdown

    Looks great! Overlord's a great figure. It's just a shame citybots take up so much space, except for Fort Max I've usually had to display them all in bot mode.

    wow, thanks for putting the rest up. i do believe i've seen most if not all of those in the cool stuff thread. i had forgotten i suppose. very nice how the wst toys work so well for the city modes. now i regret not getting more than anime prime. mine's sitting in brave max's shoulder in bot mode wathcing over the autobots in one of my display cases. i wanted a bumblebee too who was very common and then dried up. ah well, such is life. as for me, i own metroplex who's in the middle of being restored, brave max and i'm wanting to get gigastorm. so basically the most common citybot molds. i simply prefer giga and his less amount of parts.
    at this point i'm going on about me though, very cool pics my friend. very cool.

    Congrats on the Overlord. An excellent piece to own. Welcome to the club. All you need now is Fort Max sword and your set.
