    The pic below speaks for itself:

    Got him via a friend, from a private vendor in Japan. Yeah, he probably cost me far more than what he goes for in the Junkion Exchange, but at three hundred bucks less than what he currently costs on eBay, I don't think I did all too bad. I'll post more images later; currently too busy tinkering with him and spazzing out. :D

    At least it isn't 2,000 bucks for an unused Black Zarak with a now broken shield. Congrats!

    Congrats, broski! :thumb 

    Overlord is just one of those towering Decepticon leaders that don't always need a kitbash to say "Suck it, Ginrai! Whew! Whew! Whew!" :D  What a fetch!
    :lol  :lol  :lol  :lol  :lol  :lol 

    Are you sure you ain't related to Wheeljack30, GENOZAUR, or FunkyMunky? :lol  :lol  :lol  :lol

    Damn, man! That's a heck of a grail to get!

    How anybody in the fandom can still not know who this toy is...I just don't know.

    Because if they are like me, you know from the US and never got into the Japanese side or the comic, you never heard of Overlord.

    I had no clue who he was till someone casually mentioned it a couple of posts ago and then I went and googled him..

    The articulation on that guy is terrible. Couldn't they think of a better dynamic pose than that?

    On the plus side, at least Overlord is cool. ;)
