    Clone Bots would be the Autobot Clones. The Decepticon clones were known as Clonetrons in Japan.

    Based on the MSRP for Overlord, it very likely has substantial remolding. It costs 500 yen more (8,500 yen) than the regular Leader class figures (8,000 yen). LG Super Ginrai also had a 500 yen price bump.

    Blitzwing follows Broadside's and Octane's pricing. It cost 500 yen more than previous Voyager class figures like Astrotrain. This indicates that Blitzwing will be coming with either a TR vehicle (like Broadside) or extra Headmaster (like Octane).

    Glad I waited on the Clones. I had a feeling they were coming anyway.

    On second thoughts, maybe he won't be remolded much. Perhaps a slightly remolded head (like Sixshot) and the inclusion of an second Headmaster. That could also account for the price bump.

    I don't see Takara not doing Masterforce full justice after nearly 3 decades of absence.

    They know Masterforce fans are going to insist on having both chest-engines mounted. This would strongly imply, both "Titanmasters" would have to have engine block backpacks, thus an entirely new non-headmaster headsculpt for Overlord as well.

    Waking up to 3 Groups of Takara News is just wacky.

    Yeah, probably just a couple of extra titanmasters to go in his chest cavities?

    Unlike the difference between PMOP/ Ginrai, there isn't much that needs 'fixed' on Overlord.
