    Ugh...Leo Prime looks sucky...and calling him a Maximal is a terrible idea since he isn't even a Lio Convoy colored repaint. Not that it really matters...but still, haha.

    They're really milking the Cybertron molds for this line.

    Leo Prime and Overload

    Wow, the 1st time I've bothered looking at these pics since I heard the BBTS ones were bad. Now that I see them in HiRes, man.....I'm not sure if I should look at them without having a bucket nearby.

    Leo Prime...I have a LioConvoy from Japan(white/gold). The Japanese paint job is FAR superior to the one they're using here. I understand they want a g1 type color-scheme, but good lord...the head deco and hind legs look ridiculous!

    And as far as Overload goes...WTF???!!! ANOTHER Scattershot re-paint? Good-freakin'-God! Hell, even using Defense Red Alert woulda made a whole lot more sense and we wouldn't be looking a repeat re-paint.

    I have collected EVERY u.s. main-line tf since Beast Wars, and I'm SERIOUSLY considering skipping both of these. That's just sad. ..

    G.A.P.

    Yeah, I've learned my lesson about Hasbro's bait and switch photography.

    So basically, imagine these images, but run through the wringer of a low-budget KO manufacturer, with sloppy, sticky paint and terrible QC, and you've got a pretty good idea of what the finished retail version will look like.

    The packaging and the symbol on his chest suggest he's and Autobot.

    His symbols, yes, but the package says Maximal and has the Maximal symbol on it. Could just be a simple mistake, though.

    OK, I'm sold on Leo Prime, that Primal Prime color scheme & new head sculpt are both nice and I never got Leo/Nemesisbreaker so this guy will look nice attached to Cybertron Prime. I wish they would make up thier minds on whether he's a Maximal or Autobot though.

    Sadly this is true, such a shame. I'd CONSIDERED getting Leo Prime because of the new head, but the colors looked wonky to begin with, now they're just nauseating.

    And Overload, him I was planning on getting, but UGH those colors! Seriously Hasbro, you need to stop putting photoshopped pictures out there, it only causes disappointment.

    I can't figure out what is more bewildering, the fact that Overload is being released or the fact that I clicked on the link.

    Overstatement much? Yes, you are overstating and exaggerating.

    There are reports of Henkei Prowls with sticky paint as well, along with problems in the new Binaltech line and of course, the misassembled and/or busted shoulders of Henkei Thundercracker. Don't act as though only Hasbro has problems this year and sweep QC issues with other toy manufacturers under the rug.

    I'd hold off if Razorclaw is your only motivation for this toy - I'm thinking Hasbro went to the trouble of making a new head for this mold so they could redeco it as Razorclaw themselves later on.

    Leo Prime, he was always on my rejection list... Not even a new head can detract from the awful paint job on it.

    Kinda disappointed in Overload. The colours are worse than I thought they were, and - After comparing to the originals - They've decided to cheap out on the techno-camoflage (Technoflage?) paint job that was so appealing to me. Bah...
