    Just picked this guy up yesterday.

    Since I'm one of the...well...one people who actually like the Dreadwing mold, I was looking forward to picking up Overcast.

    The mold looks fantastic in black, and the yellow translucent bits look great with the dark coloring. The Allspark blue is fairly sparse, and doesn't clash too much with the overall color scheme.

    If you have Dreadwind you know the score....the lower torso is worse than those found on any 1980's He-Man figures...but if you can get past that, it's still a fun toy with a cool TOTALLY non obtrusive automorph gimmick. If you don't like Dreadwing you more than likely won't like Overcast unless you dig the black color scheme. Though one could probably make a convincing Skywarp-esque color scheme by switching the Allspark blue from Overcast and the purple bit on Dreadwing.

    Personally I like Overcast better than Dreadwing just based on color preference.

    I really liked Dreadwing too, but I like the colors on him enough to only own one of the mold. Overcast looks nice, but I'm content with Dreadwing.

    I realized after I'd taken the pics I forgot to open up the tabs on the thrusters to make its 'hands'.

    Yep, picked this guy up Saturday night and really do love the new paintjob. Now I gotta go take a look at the feasibility of swapping out the purple bits, cuz that's a brilliant idea Grimmy!

    Hee hee, I like the Dreadwing mold, and will pick this guy up.

    His colours are nice and he has the novelty of looking like he is shooting pee out of his hands (gotta love translucent yellow plastic)

    Just picked two up today.
    I have to say that the color scheme is awesome. Based on the paintjob alone, Overcast is one of my favorite Movie line figures. Plus, I was already a fan of the Dreadwing mold, so more points there. "Overcast" is kind of a cool name, too, along with his bio. Overall, Overcast = win.

    I don't really care for Dreadwing, but this may be worth picking up.

    Indeed! He will be able to face off quite nicely against FAB Smokescreen.... or as I re-named him, "Urine Cannon Smokescreen." :)

    Saw this guy MISB at Wal-Mart over the weekend, and in combination with those pics, I have to admit... the black really seems to lessen the blow of his deficiencies. The yellow doesn't look ridiculous either. But there's still that damn head, and I mean its size and length, not the lack of a traditional face. That's one thing the new colors can't hide quite so much.
