    since hasbro has gone so far as to actually make a marauder megatron protgotype figure but has not actually mass produced or released it as a part of the toylin

    whats to stop them from just giving it a differant head mold and selling it as classics henkei, universe, generations style overlord instead?

    if anything i think that would be a suitable way to recycle the mold figure wise and stil make a tidy profit along the way

    The Animated aesthetic requires more than just a head swap for it to blend in properly with Classics, IMO...but I do hope they recycle the concepts in that mold as something - Classics Overload, WfC Blitzwing, an upgraded TF: Prime Megatron...

    Weird idea. Overlord needs to be a Duocon.

    Simply because the prototype is made does NOT in any way mean it will ever see release.

    Here's an example: behold; prototype Titainium Cosmos!

    This thing will, sadly, never see release. Why? Because the Titainiums are pretty much done with. Same goes with Animated and that ONE Triple changer.

    Here is what everyone is talking about.

    The Animated style proportions prevent it from working as a Classics figure.

    It would be nice if Hasbro would put out a line of toys consisting of prototypes that never got made...Titanium Cosmos and Shockwave, BW Neo Unicron, Marauder Megatron, Transtech Cheetor, etc.

    I dont mind that actually as overlord. Always thought the concept of duocon was dumb. Damn near as stupid as pretenders. You capture one part you immobilize the bot mode.

    That means you too omega! Subspace convergence on re entry my ass.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one that immediately thought of Overlord when I saw the prototype.

    However, not for classics. Perhaps it will get a release in whatever the next iteration of the Classics line is (they did Beast Wars and Armada figures in Universe 2, I wouldn't be against it getting a release in similar vain except for Animated)

    EDIT: For clarity when I say 'not for classics' I mean not in the sense that it would represent G1 Overlord.
