    Hey everyone, just got my Botcon 2012 Gigatron in hand and actually do really like the figure (if you don't more power to you) but I was interested if any third party companies are working on anything for this guy to make him more Overlord-y? For me guns are a must and I seem to recall Venksta mentioning he was working on something a while back? (could be wrong though) any info or thoughts on the figure are greatly appreciated :thumbs2:

    I don't know of any, but I'm really hoping someone is. I figure Headrobots might since they did one kit for the base mold already and have another lined up. I figure a better sized head and the big gun would do enough, though better swords would be nice too given how floppy the soft plastic ones are.

    I would welcome a gun but I personally am happy with his head so wouldn't pick a set for that, however I know a lot of people aren't so I would welcome a set for all you guys

    Also, maybe mine is a fluke buy the swords on mine and the gun on top of the tank are not floppy at all; I have the bludgeon mold and they're much softer, has anyone else found this?

    I'd like to see Headrobots make a head just so I can try making a custom myself.

    I still want a separate jet that combines with him in robot mode to form more a Overlord-y look...

    they were prototypes shown at Botcon. I remember Venksta specifically said he would only make them if there was enough interest. On a side note I do have a Metalhawk upgrade kit available at Shapeways.

    I thought Maiden Japan was working on an armor set for Overlord? A repainted version of the Bludgeon armor he did?

    It wouldn't be the first accessory that's compelled me to buy the figure.

    For Gigatron I'd like to see two Targetmasters that look like Mega and Giga in human modes.

    Also, how about a Action Master gun partner for SG Treadshot?
