    He could be hitched up to the back of Leader Optimus' trailer and Jetfire could perch on top of him in shuttle mode; making for a nice-sized convoy.

    If I recall, Overload only showed up two or three times in the Armada cartoon towards the end of the show and never had a speaking role. Just appeared out of nowhere and was basically extra guns for Prime.

    I think it's meant to be a weapons trailer of sorts (although I can never remember whether that was an official mode, a fan mode off the net, or something I came up with in my own time) - I only remember him appearing once (although I didn't watch all of Armada) and even then he was referred to as Ultra Magnus.

    The figure is fun - most enjoyment I've got out of something that is essentially a brick.

    Yeah, he sorta just showed up after the Mini-cons resurected Prime via the Matrix. And yeah, he never had a speaking role (outside of the spoken "COMBINE!" in the stock footage of him becoming Prime's artilery backpack:tongue: ). Interestingly, the Universe Overload (another of those Cyb. Def. Scattorshot redecos, I think the Autobot 8-bit camo one) is supposed to be Armada Overload during Cybertron, and the bio, amusingly enough, mentions his unknown origins being something even HE is confused about:lol

    I really liked that toy. He was a total brick, but a uber-detailed, tough as hell, fun to smash other toys with, brick.

    Of course my not-so-fondest memory is of him being at the heart of the "No Prototype Pic" policy. I still want to smash someone's face for that. Ugh.

    While Overload showed up in Armada a couple of times, he was always in trailer mode or gun mode. The toon never showed robot mode or the Minicon partner in any mode at all.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but the toy was simply called Ultra Magnus in Japan. Which explains his alt mode.
