    I know a lot of people were dissappointed, but does anybody like the BotCon Gigatron/Overlord figure? I think it's pretty cool, myself.

    I like him, but I'm really starting to wish Octopunch was the Voyager in the boxset.

    That deco is growing on me.

    But Overlord/Gigatron really just needs a new mold.

    The tank mode and head sculpt are the highlights of the figure... Great for a LSOTW collection :thumb

    as a repaint of NEST Bludgeon its okay, as Overlord/Gigatron it just fails as honestly any figure repainted into him was doomed to fail as IMO to truly capture the character a new mold is needed.

    I love the tank, he will be Giga, at some point I will custom a jet to be Mega, and use them as a pre-combined Overlord. Personal canons rule.

    I don't like either the tank mode or the robot mode. I think FunPub failed on this one.

    I'm in the same camp where the tank mode SCREAMS Overlord...but the character in Bludgeon's robot mold just doesn't work for me.
