    Hey guys just asking for a few opinions on what toy you guys out there prefer because i can not make up my mind. If you had to chose, what would it be? Cybertron Override or Cybertron Override GTS? The GTS is the repaint with darker colors and a lot of block throughout the chassis.

    GTS is the much nicer version. Of course Dark Nitro Convoy is even nicer yet, but very pricey.

    Actually, neither of them. I don't own them, but I do know someone that does, and I've seen them in person. In my opinion, the mold sucks. The things that are spring loaded just ruin the mold. If they were to get rid of that and change up the mold a bit, it could be worthy to buy in my opinion. There are a lot more better Deluxes from the Cybertron line. Peace out.

    I think the original looks way better than the dull and drab GTS version.

    I like the GTS version better plus since it is not white you don't have to worry about it yellowing sometime down the road. That and the face is not orange.

    o yea. wel its one of the last ones i need and i can not seem to find like any of the other ones that i need and also im buying it from toywiz and the gts is only 10.99 retail price plus some shipping which isnt a big deal so i think ill go with that. The reason i want to buy it is to have it posing against thunderblast since i do not like having like girl transformers but if i do i at least want an autobot and a decepticon. Therefore since i bought thunderblast i have to find a match for her which will be over ride =)

    hmm thats an interesting point, i was looking at the seibertron gallery thats where i go to check out most of the toys before i buy them and i can agree with you on that one.. its such a tough decision haha but i think im leaning more towards the gts side due to the fact that the original over ride seems to have a cheap plastic looking face =/

    While on the topic of cybertron repaints and if no one has any more to contribute to the override topic.. what about scourge what do you guys prefer Cyro or Original? =)

    I only have the original version, and have never opened it. I dig the mold, but I have heard numerous complaints regarding the spring loaded gimmick.

    Override has an auto-transform gimmick, activating it makes the torso, head, and arms automatically snap into place, all you really have to transform are the legs.

    As for preference, I like the original. Considering the US version is supposed to be female, I don't like the more drab colors on the GTS version.

    The original paint job has a dragon feel to it but I like the Cryo version better. The colors look better on the mold even though it doesn't make any sense for a dragon character outside of the bio.

    I only bought Override because he's a Convoy character in Japan. I like the GTS colors better but I couldnt justify buying the lame mold twice

    I'm not a fan of the mold, so I wouldn't recommend either one.

    But without the orange face it wouldn't be a Minerva homage!

    I guess I have all four:

    Nitro Convoy
    Dark Nitro Convoy
    Override
    Override GTS.

    Kind of a balence, two gals and 2 guys.
