    UPDATE!!! Please READ!

    As trade offers were not very forthcoming, I have decided to sell it.

    Due to a lot of people expressing their interest in the toy, I'm putting it up for a 'bid'. Starting price is 350 $!

    Please make your bids HERE on this topics, so that every other interested party can see it. I won't accept PMs, unless they are trade offers.

    'Auction' lasts until next Tuesday May 25. Highest bid wins. And please, no "overbidding with 1$" nonsense. ;) 


    I just got another boxed Overlord - this is the third one I got so far... ;) 
    Because it's not an everyday's trade, I decided to open a whole new thread for the toy. My other TF toys for trade/sale can be found here:

    My other TF toys for trade

    First, the basics:

    My TFW2005 Feedback

    My NTFA Feedback

    For trades, I only trade if you have at least one positive feedback at TFW2005 or elsewhere. If you have none, we can still trade if you accept my rules: you'll have to ship first and I'll only ship if your items arrived without problems. Sorry, I had some bad experiences in the past with users without feedback...

    Contact me at bbshockwave12@gmail.com! PM space gets used up quickly at TFW2005.

    Now for the toy description!

    MIB G1 Overlord 99% complete MIB

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Toy is MIB. Box is in a so-so shape, though - see pictures below, it has lots of wrinkles, some inner flaps are missing. The box was torn in some places which the previous owner fixed with duct tape. This is still the one in better shape from the two Overlord boxes I own.

    Here are more photos of the box for those who need it:

    Box Picture 1

    Box Picture 2

    The inner styrofoam is near mint, no discoloration. A small piece near the tank part's place is torn off, that's all.

    Overlord himself is in excellent shape. Tight joints, stickers are all present (a few are misplaced for example tailfin stickers are on the arms). If someone is bothered by misplaced stickers, I have an unused Overlord stickersheet - I can scan it and you can print them out on a sticker-paper and apply them!

    [​IMG]

    Top body is in great shape. PM mechanisms work fine, chest stickers are intact. As usual with ALL Overlords, the pegs that hold the wings and tailfins in place are cracked due to the toy's aging, this is only prominent on the left tailfin though - the other wings do hold themselves fine. The tabs are NOT broken off, they are there, only cracked.

    Shuttle part is in excellent shape too - has Con insignia, and the cockpit peg is unbroken - another rarity. Thus the cockpit seals well. The cockpit has minimal paintwear only.

    [​IMG]

    Tank part is in great shape. The elusive yellow driver window is there, and inside the tank, it has both the double-barreled gun and the grapple arm and its claws intact. One of the claw ends seems to have been glued back, but it holds, I tested it.

    [​IMG]

    Here are some close-ups of the base mode so you can check out the details:

    Base photo 1

    Base photo 2

    Base photo 3


    The toy comes with almost all the parts!

    -Powermaster Giga (white): In great shape. Very hard to find her with so little chrome wear! I have never seen one that had no chrome wear at all, she is more suspectible to that then Giga.

    -Powermaster Mega (black): Great shape. Slightly loose leg joints, NO chrome wear!

    [​IMG]

    -2x Leg armor/ramps (with stickers)

    -Middle ramp

    -Powermaster car

    -Giant handgun

    -Double-barreled gun

    -Tank barrell (one of the rarest pieces to find as in robot mode it does not attach to the toy)

    -Rocket battery (hard to find it unbroken like this one!)

    -Round radar dish (with pointed tip intact!)

    -Laser-gun antenna

    So, the only missing parts are the 3 missiles. But, for you in the US/Europe, getting those will be easy. A little known fact: G1 Overlord's missiles are almost identical and replacable with G1 Metroplex's!

    The toy has two small issues, shown in the pic below:

    [​IMG]

    The right knee-panel/ramp's upper socket's hinge was broken off. One small piece is missing, I re-glued the other part with superglue. I tried, it holds fine.

    Also, the gun tip of the laser-gun-radar is broken off.


    Now... for the business!

    Since now I have a (at the moment) stable job, I'm primarly looking to trade this toy. So, for now, he's only for TRADE!

    And, I'd prefer to trade him for the toy that you in the US can (if not often) encounter but me in Hungary (Europe even) would never see for sale or trade - FORTRESS MAXIMUS!

    I'm pretty much avaiting all offers, only requirements: the body should NOT be yellowed (seeing as I can't easily replace that) and it MUST have Cerebros.

    I was thinking an around 350$ value for Overlord - meaning that if your Fort Max is more complete and worth more, I'm willing to pay the difference - or you can ask for more of my trades in that value (I have a lot of European exclusive G1-G2 toys currently). And if your Max is not so much complete and worth less, you will pay the difference - or you can offer me some toys from my wantlist to fill in the "gap".

    Please PM or email me with offers!

    It's for trade only. For a Fort Max, of similar value. With postage costs and the price of that toy on Ebay, a trade is more profitable for me, plus I have been looking forward getting that toy for a long time.

    Bumped. I'm still hoping someone has a Fort Max for trade, somewhere... doesn't have to be complete, really. I'm willing to settle for the body and Cerebros, plus some parts.
