    I was just looking at some flash animations of the Constructicons a few minutes ago, and there was one for everybody's favorite(?) crab dump truck Overload.

    Based on that animation (and his WIP art) he would've been freaking awesome. He'd be a four-legged monstrosity with 5 arms.

    Would anybody of wanted to see him in RoTF or DoTM?

    Yes, it is awesome. I always say if they had scrapped the Twins, they could fulfill all their other concept ideas. (Since the Twins had ALL THAT SCREENTIME...)

    Still loved the movie though.

    I did. That was an incredible design that they just couldn't utilize.

    I'd rather have seen Bee take on Overload instead of Rampage, that would have been an awesome fight.

    That'd be cool.

    But an entirely different fight. Bee trying to avoid all 5 arms, avoiding his pronged crab legs.

    Heck yeah I would! The two main pieces of concept art show him as both bipedal and as the "crab bot". I personally prefer the crab-bot, but either one would be cool.

    That guy is a f**king legend.

    THIS.

    I adored Overload's concept designs, both as this massive clusterf*ck of legs and arms and death or as the five-armed humanoid. They were utterly amazing. It's a shame we never saw his robot form, or Hightower's.

    Yeah. In my version of RoTF, each Constructicon gets thier own voice and screentime, then combine for the climax.

    But nooo.

    A Youtuber who has posted magnificent animations of the movie Transformers.

    Look up on Youtube: "Short Flash Transformers." and you'll see them :)

    Well if they would remade the films we had more autobots and decepticons and we would see overload in robot mode.

    Me-thinks they should've appeared in the Foundry, would've made some sense atleast. Mixmaster could possibly replace Scalpel's role as Doctor too. And Optimus could've totally had an epic fight with them after dispatching Megatron and Starscream and get wasted. Them having individual voices = Dream come true. I could imagine Mixmaster having a Tom Hardy-esque Bane voice. Him or Long Haul.

    There's no guarantee that a reboot/remake would give us more robot characters. And there's also no guarantee that Overload would be in a reboot/remake.

    If reboots have proven anything in the past, it's that they (try to) correct things that have been complained about in previous films. And while there are people out there who want more robot characters in Bayformers, the lion's share of comments seems to be that they want fewer characters in order to focus on them more. And that's one of the major things I can picture a potential reboot/remake doing in order to differentiate between it and Bayformers. Changing the tone, changing the overall design aesthetic, different characters and fewer robot characters.

    However, with all of that being said, that is no guarantee either. Who knows? They could end up giving us even more robot characters than Bayformers already crammed in there. Oh gosh...
