    Phase 1

    Okie. Here's a start of my Takara Masterforce Overlord WIP thread. He started of life as Armada Tidalwave. Been busy working at the jet and tank mode. Here's a preview of Lord Mega's Jet.

    Comments and criticisms are more than welcome. I cant promise that I will be able to act on it (as I already have a concept in mind), but...you'll never know when I may cave in! :) 

    Phase 2

    Lord Giga is almost complete. I'm still trying to see if I can manage to fix the tank turret while keeping the rotation intact. Any tips on this will be appreciated. For Lord Giga's tank, I made use of ROTF Bludgeon. The size was just perfect. Thanks for all your refreshing comments. Very much appreciated!

    Phase 3

    Overlord's torso was extended. I also rebuilt his thighs as Tidalwave had really really skinny legs. He has 360 degrees waist rotation too. Here's some pics with Lord Mega's jet facing upwards and downwards. Both has grown on me. Your opinions will be the deciding factor!

    Yeah. He's got the right components for Overlord. Just waiting for Giga and Mega to arrive. Bought them off ebay for an exorbitant amount.

    You're using the original engine masters?! Might have been cheeper to pick up a couple of Pefect effect Shadow warriors and mod them, at least they'd have some poseability!

    May I ask what you're planning to use for the tank section?

    About time that this was done. It's such an obvious choice with how he's made up and how easy it should be to convert the legs into a tank. Anyways, can't wait to see this finished. :)

    That is completely different from the concept I had working in my head, but awesome nonetheless.

    I'm a big fan of the Blackbird, so that modified look to it you're working with is kind of a no-no in my book. But I'm sure after more work it'll grow on me. Plus I'm pretty sure it's necessary.

    This will be great to see through to completion.

    YES! I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who thought Tidalwave would be perfect for this.

    I hope this works out well.

    Well, I did think about that but the PE-01 toys were slightly bigger than what I actually wanted. Thanks for the heads up though. I am using ROTF Bludgeon for Lord Giga's tank.

    I too cant wait. It's been a tiring project.

    Heya! Too big, too big! :) 

    Me too. I hope to wrap it up soon.

    Well, it was hard trying to find a suitable mold for the plane with Tidalwave's transformation. After looking quite a bit, the SR-71 mold fits perfectly with Tidalwave's upperbody. I was looking at some pics of Overlord. Looks quite similar too actually. But I do appreciate your honest comment.

    Thanks guys!

    Thanks all. Will appreciate if you have any tips on making the turret rotate even when fixed over the tank. I'm having a slightly hard time as I need to balance the engineering to cater for the tank, jet, base, robot and tank + jet mode. But..he will have them all!

    That is looking very nice Sabrina - some great ideas for what parts to use, and you're tackling all of Overlord's forms which should be amazing to see once finished!

    This is fantastic!
    I have been wanting to do a 'true' overlord for quite some time but I could never see a way to make the triple-changing WORK. If it will not offend you, could I steal the concept to later try for my own?
    I'm not entirely certain on the blackbird mold myself, to be honest whenever I think of the jet mold I always see Chalker's "Rings of the Master" craft. However that is certainly a personal preference.
    I can not wait to see the finished effects of this work, thank you for sharing
