    After spending months looking at Overlord I felt like he needed a sword. And with shapeways not being a viable option (it not spending heaps on a piece of plastic) I decided to do my first scratch build. I’ll be honest it’s not the best but I reckon when the parts are together and painted it’ll look a lot better.
    Blade comes from a TFTM Evac helicopter blade and a helicopter blade from one of the Energon Helicopters.

    Hilt comes from various bots. The guard is from a blue frenzy from TFTM. below that a shoulder from a PCC toy then that was clicked into a socket from Kreo. All joined with some sculpting putty by tamaiya (or however it’s spelt) and also the handle is 2 poles (one 5mm from some rescuebots dragon thing and the other from a my draw of parts) this will all have to be joined by some strong glue as the one wielding it will have to go against God Ginrai himself.


    I’m picking up the glue tomorrow if all goes well


    Update (finished build)
    With everything dry and a more stable body here is the finished sword. Pics below.

    Also shown is his gun extension using a Nullray from Leader Starscream. I’ll be waiting until my airbrush is fixed or I get a new one before I paint. (The airbrush was making one hellish noise)

    Sorry the pics are sideways I’ll edit with better photos later in the week anyway so I’m not going to bother changing them 91979A5A-1725-40B7-BE38-BE44494A6F76.jpeg 2447A18D-D7B2-4D9C-BD00-CE7CF4D80E22.jpeg D7DAE271-EACA-4254-BAF8-8D08137BA008.jpeg D7DAE271-EACA-4254-BAF8-8D08137BA008.jpeg 91ADD45B-ADBC-4546-94A2-740AC1AD8B17.jpeg

    Feels appropriate for Overlords sword to be made from other bots.

    Update. Went to get the glue and they had none for some reason so when I get paid I’ll try another store a bit further away from me.

    Also making the handle isn’t as easy as I thought. Thinking I might join them together with a metal pin.

    Added his handle and glued the entire hilt together and coated in putty. When it dries I’ll sand the putty don’t worry.

    When putty is dried I’ll add the blade. More glue a sand and paint. The putty will take a while to dry sadly 51736133-946D-4377-A5D9-B1661827117B.jpeg

    Ran into a slight issue with stability. Now I’m making a new hilt and it’s actually somewhat closer to an IDW Great Sword. Not sure if Overlord used one(haven’t read much IDW) but he will now.

    Once the sword is done I’ll be making a new gun for Overlord. Slowly he will be the perfect Overlord. I would ultimately like a new head. New lower arms (with posable hands maybe) and new legs or at least an extension so he has more pronounced feet and is taller (closer to God Ginrai)

    And lastly I got bored and made a little bonus ‘accessory’ with a junker

    Depending what half it is I could imagine like a massive shark gun. I mean we have a Sharknado so why not :lol
