All I have to do is look at my Carnifex to talk me out of buying TR Overlord.
Guys, I'm sorry I didn't mention that I'm up in Canada. And yes, I've seen two locations with two Overlords each. They're not moving faster than any other $55 CDN leader class I've seen, and it does appear that they're already being scalped for more on ebay.
I honestly have not been following the mainline distribution issues lately, mainly cause I'm an MP guy. I really want to buy this bot, it's just that it doesn't fit my 'focus'...and that's why I was asking for some good reasons to not buy it I had no intent to brag about seeing them on shelves. God knows I've been on the opposite side, trying to find Legends versions of Gnaw and Kickback with poor results while others are swimming in them.
Thanks again for the tips, I didn't realize that he wasn't around much in the US. I'd love to be able to grab some and pay it forward for you down there, but I don't have the bucks to grab more than one...otherwise, I'd totally do it to help somebody out (although shipping from Canada to USA now is prohibitively stupid..especially for a Leader box size).
*and I'm kicking myself for missing out on a news credit, lol, I never see stuff first around here
I don't get the hype over Overlord ... okay he looks cool ... but ...
He showed up in the back half of Masterforce, maybe only last third even.
I always the thought the other Decepticons in Masterforce were more interesting. Overlord was pretty much just a mustache twirling villain. At least with the others there was a bit more character.
I would love to find one at Wal mart
If you want it so badly that you need strangers on the internet to convince you otherwise, maybe you should just buy it.
No. It's the opposite.
He's coming here because he wants someone to talk us out of it. That's evidence enough he doesn't want it as bad as he thinks. Especially if he's passed it up multiple times in stores already.
(Also, where's this guy that he's not only seeing Overlord at retail, but it's sticking around on multiple trips to the store.)
I think you talked yourself out of it.
Overlord is just an overgrown version of Wheelie.....easy pass.
Get one and send it to me. I'll review it for you and let you know if toy should get the other one.
If you have a friend or you own an original, watch a review of the Legends with the Original in hand and compare them. You wouldnt want to see the Legends again. Particularly in base mode.
It's not too late, go take a pic and post it in the news
And the Ford Pinto looks better than a Lamborghini Diablo......
When did they start putting low-quality stickers on Lamborghinis to cover up a lack of paint/detailing?
Don't do it! His lips aren't nearly luscious and kissable enough. It's not worth it.
I think he's mostly known for his idw comic appearance.
Its mostly the old toy thats responsible for this. A rare to find toy that it was one of the best of its time.
Think about this hes gone, you will never ever see him again, how do you feel, if its a meh feeling then hes likely passable, if its a feeling even slightly of regret buy him, this is how ive collected and i love all of my 1200+ transformers
Isn't the 3rd party one more true to the IDW look though?
I dunno, for the price of a G1 Overlord I can live with buying a Generations/Legends version as a stand-in.
Pipes rolls in his grave every time someone buys an Overlord.
