    Found this on /toy/, don't know where that poster got it from. Revealed at Botfest, remold of Calidus.

    Dat chest was too flat, like they cut some paper printed and stick to his chest.
    But drift and wing look so good.

    Still better than nothing or the gimped out version Hasbro was selling us. I'm guessing it's suppose to be more faithful to the Nitro Convoy version of the character as opposed to the Hasbro version with its weird gender changes.

    I'm holding out for a possibility of a MT MP one at some point, but this is cool as well. :D

    So I assume this is the UT Character @LazyAza was referring to.

    Oh sh*t, OVERRIDE!

    I love her and I can totally see her in Voyager size since in many incarnations she basically has Prime status. Finally interested in this mould.

    (Although I wouldn't be interested if SHE is depicted as a HE because f*ck that).

    Looks like a good update for Nitro Convoy to me, although translucent wheels would've been cool.


    *shrug*

    I was expecting to see the Getaway remold or something, but I'm all in for this as well! :D

    Nitro/Override's candy wheels could be awesome, particularly given how prominently visible they are on this mold.

    Think so as well. He did say it was a Cybertron/GF character and an existing mould. Override/Nitro Convoy fits.

    I was expecting it to be this mould, but I was thinking Hot Shot. Truth be told, I'm glad it's not Hot Shot because I very likely would buy the mould (again) in that deco, but I have absolutely no interest in Override.

    Why do this first....

    Did they think it would sell better than Getaway?

    No attachment to the character, but it's definitely a far more interesting deco than Calidus. The colour choices and separation work so much better.

    The proportions are still not the best unfortunately (which is an inherent problem from this mould). Something tells me that Override would look better from SXS Hot Flame.

    Yeah, not buying any more of the Calidus mold.

    Drift looks good, TC isn't bad either.
