    Hey very cool! I figgured it would just be a G2 Grimlock repaint...Overkill is an obscure yet great choice. I'll also be missing out, but definitely cool, I'll look forward to pics!

    OVERKILL? I know him well!(??)
    Of course I remember the cassette in passing, but I didn't think anybody would be ressurrecting him any time soon!

    Moreso than having a cassette alt mode, adding the horn to the nose a truly "accurate" Overkill this repaint would make.

    actually quite fiting since not only is overkill a tyranasaur but he came equipped with missles. Unlike grimlock, so the backpack cannon makes even more sense here.

    edit: woah. check out Cataclizm1's custom. Green lightpiping makes the decepticon difference.

    anyway maybe you get a decepticon rubsign sticker at this class to replace the autobot one.

    Interesting choice. A horn would be cool, but I doubt it. Then he would have spiked toes, though that would be pretty cool.

    Like said above, a horn would make this very cool. As is, I think it is neat.

    Nice! This would've gotten me to sign up for the customizing class if I had known before. Stupid Magic 8-ball...

    He's molded in the exact same colors as Grimlock, so it won't be so blue with green eyes, etc.

    It won't have green eyes. They'll be red just like Grimlock's (unless they paint over them). The figure uses exactly the same colors as Grimlock just different paint. So it won't have that much blue either.

    And Overkill, a Ceratosaurus is not a tyrannosaur, but a Ceratosauria or a Carnosauria. :)
