    After being hooked to one of, if not the best TRANSFORMERS mini series, LAST STAND OF THE WRECKERS, Primo and I wanted to make a figure that represented that Overlord...so, no base mode or breast partners.... I have no clue how many hours we spent on the phone discussing how to improve this guy...we hope you guys love it!


    heavy mods by PRIMO'S CUSTOMS-articulated arms, hands, waist, hips, knees..very innovated stuff here... what he did with the arms is just perfect!

    new face sculpt, head mods, neck, re-built waist, and paint by ENCLINE-airbrushed, and hand brushed in enamels and acrylics...

    full pics coming this weekend.

    SUCH a tease, but this looks like it could prove to be the best of many very great Overlord customs out there. I've said that before, but the head-sculpt on this one is very impressive.

    I'm glad you guys decided to continue working on Overlord(s)--the first one was an incredible update of the G1 figure (which is still one of my most wanted figures, alas, I haven't money that I'm willing to spend on frivolous things) but the LSOTW rendition of Overlord is one of my favorite characters in Transformers fiction and is an incredibly hard figure to do right given the unique art style of Nick Roche.

    LSOTW is one of the few engaging adult-oriented pieces of Transformers fiction out there that actually stands to be taken seriously. I'm saddened by IDW's recent turn to, well, dull pointlessness rather than moving towards what Roche attempted to establish with LSOTW. Transformers fiction has never really been a real source of intellectual stimulation for me, but LSOTW started to veer towards that realm and I would've liked to have seen more.

    So, it's comforting to see some support for LSOTW in the transformers community. This rendition of the character appears to capture that character incredibly, even with just having seen the teaser picture. Great work, I look forward to seeing more from you two as everything you've done in the past has proven to be excellent.

    Dude..thanks man!! Coming form a guy who obviously put so much heart into your Overlord, I am sure you can feel what we were going for here!! When is your trip?

    Like Mexican dulces...con picante!! lol...thanks...

    Ahh, great!! Someone who appreciates the deeper stories.. LSOTW was SOO good...one of the few comics I could not wait to go to the comic shop and buy on the day it came out. It actually made me feel something when ..umm..some situations came up..I would have liked to see more of the story too... I really wanted Overlord to meet up with Megs...but..ohh well...still wondering what happened with Grimmy:) 

    I have always been into comics, be just recently started going way back and reading a lot of the older stuff.. G2 Is a great story as well....

    That is why I really like working with Primo...he is a TRUE fan..not someone who is in customizing just to make some cash.....he has schooled me on many things....and we share the same "vision" when it comes to our customs...no mater how good it looks, if we can not capture the essence of what we are creating, then we fail as artists....

    Encline,

    I know if anyone can do justice to Overlord it's you. Your work inspires most, if not all fellow Radicons to create the best they can, but very few can match your insane and utterly amazing skills. I've followed your progress since the day I joined TFW2K5 and constantly reference your works when working on my own creations and it's always a pleasure to see your innovative style and appreciation for the medium come to life.

    I read LSOTW just recently and the Wreckers along with Overlord have become my all time favorite bots, and I know you'll be the only one to bring the truly terrifying visage of Overlord to a realization that the TF fandom have only dared fathom.

    Needless to say... I am anticipating this custom with a dedicated interest!

    I have never commissioned a custom from anyone and have always hoped for the day when someone could deliver something truly worth acceptance into my elite collection.

    Let's see what you pull off and we'll go from there!

    Respectfully,

    Nyarlahotep

    Bonus point for pouty lips! I feel like he should come with accessories, like faceless Springer, headless Rotorstorm, half-dead Kup and Guzzle kibble.
