    What mold are we expecting this to be? I've heard everything from ROTF Bludgeon, to Universe Silverbolt, to Generations Darkmount.

    Considering how Botcons 2006-2011 have used at least one mold from Cybertron (I don't think 2010 had one), I wouldn't be surprised if Overlord/Gigatron used the Cybertron Megatron mold. Wasn't there fanart of that somewhere?

    No A/E/C molds, they've already said that. So it's definitely not Cybertron Megatron. And I assume ROTF Jetfire is out for every reason.

    They tweeted, "Astrotrain has requested that his fellow Decepticon "The Overlord" gets his full reveal this morning. Does he hear a second on that? 1 hour ago"

    So, I guess it's Astrotrain's mold.

    no thier paraphrasing the 86' movie.

    I'm starting to get a bit nervous. Leader classes are extremly difficult for them to do and not unreasonable at all for us to acknowledge that, but I think there was as close to a consensus as we get that Cybetron Megatron as Overlord was completly acceptable, the lack of A/E/C mold makes me concerned.....but I'm getting ahead of myself. no reason to complain about something we have no idea on.
