    I like it! I do not own the original override and I am glad I waited for this one. The gray, red, silver and black go well with her as well as the green hi-lights on her head add a nice touch.

    My only gripe are her arms, but probably nothing different to those who own regular override.

    Thank you for the pictures :)  Looks interesting, kind of female Nemesis colouring.
    I have Nitro Convoy and am not a great fan of this mould, so I don't think I'd pick one up, though.

    Too bad it's not a Decepticon... but she's mostly black so I may pick one up to add to my growing Nemesis Army. Just got Black Lio Convoy the other day so I am only 3 figures short of my goal of owning every black convoy/prime out there.

    The green is so misplaced. Otherwise, not a bad recolor. Not worth a purchase though. =\

    Its a good repaint, still 50/50 on if I'm picking it up or not.

    I don't have the orignal and I'm liking these colors a lot better. When ever it arrives to my area I must pick one up.

    I still can't get over how "he" is referred to as a "she"

    Nice pics. This repaint is rubbing me in a Machine Wars sorda way.
    I love the gimmicky quickformers (Cyberjets etc), but the gimmick in my Override is too jumpy and she does'nt want to stay in car mode.

    Sorry but, I can't stand grey. It makes the other colors look really drab and boring.

    ...

    Well, it's official. This is the first Cybertron figure I won't be getting.

    It's just too close to Override's original color scheme. If they had used more green and/or silver in place of the red, I'd likely be all over this figure. I do like what they did with the cockpit. As it is, though, it's the only Cybertron figure that gets a "meh" from me. (Not to mention the fact that they negated one of the figure's few redeeming qualities after the test shot stage, covering up the headlights AGAIN.)

    I agree, I wish the colors were a bit more varied from the original...maybe get rid of the reds and use dark green or something. Overall I was disappointed in the mold to begin with so I'm passing on it anyway.

    As for the whole he/she stuff, it's not like it's the first time it's been done...Airrazor anyone?

    I do with the toy had more feminine features though. Oh well...life goes on.

    Is this a Hasbro exclusive?

    No Galaxy Force version right?

    I saw two at my local Walmart and passed on it cause I wasn't sure if it's a Hasbro exclusive.

    this gets 2 thumbs up from me...

    this proves that a great paint job on a crappy mold, makes all the difference :D

    What do you mean? It is a she. It's a Cybertron toy, and in Cybertron, that character is a female. As such, it is a she.
