You actually watch the video? I just fast forward just to see the mold.
He definitely needed the new head. And the colors are great. Love the purple on the rocket pods!
I just don't feel he's good enough to be a Last Stand of the Wreckers Overlord on that particular classics shelf. Granted If the fiction wants to depict him as a reconstructed overlord after being burned down to his skeleton and having his brain detonated. Then that can justify the skeletal frame. Total Last stand of the wreckers continuation. And he's down to just his tank alt mode, from the crippled loss of mass.
It also worked for springer. Who got a mass retail repaint. After the botcon exclusive one.
Well.....for all we know Metalhawk could be a movie-verse toy...........
I got bored after the first 15 seconds, so I skipped ahead to the reveal.
This figure is awesome!
How about the Heroes of Cybertron one?
-Tank will no doubt look fantastic in those colors.
-Headsculpt looks ok, I would like a better look at it though.
-Yeah, that robot mode just doesn't work. It's just too unique as a samurai to be used for Overlord. Hell, IMO no modern toy has a robot mode even close to Overlord's design because it's so unique. Botcon may have been better off just reissuing the original (though that would lead to tons of rage at the limited availability to a greatly desired figure )
-Cool that they can use the Bludgeon mold, no doubt this means other molds from movie lines that weren't in the film or licensed vehicles (i.e. Mindwipe) can also be used.
Overall, think I'll pass. If Metalhawk looks good though I'll try and pick him up.
Oh Botcon. How I love when you make it so I save money. That thing is fugly. ROTF Bludgeon is mediocre at best and the new head looks like shit. So far between picking Botcon or Dairycon I'm leaving towards the big cheese.
Yeah, ROTF Dirge or something...
God I hope not...
If I end up getting the set I'll just treat gigatron as a separate entity from overlord.
Im 50-50 on this... colors are spot on, but the head sculpt doesn't scream Overlord to me. I dunno...
A lot of hate being piled on this. I don't like it but I'm not hating it. The head looks great and the colors are spot on. but like someone else said, there really isn't an available mold Period that would serve as overlord save MAYBE Cybetron Megatron...but that was almost certainly out of the question.
Plus the fact that Music label soundwave was already shattered glass soundwave (And it's not like it's cost/availability is any less than a botcon toy)
And a diaclone colored magnus rather than RID scourge (And lord help us all if thats the freebie...THAT I would rage on FP about)
This box looks like I probably won't buy it. but hey that frees up cash for other things... and it's not like FP is going to have trouble selling out so no harm to them. I'll just wait for next year and news on the at cons.
Well that's a pleasant surprise.
Have some 720p!
QUAKE WITH FEAAAAR
(I can't remember any other Ronin Warrior/Dark Warlord attack callouts.)
Hm... the head and colors work really well, but the mold? Eh... I'm not too sure. I was hoping the toy could be used to represent the LSOTW Overlord, and ROTF Bludgeon really can't do that.
I'll have to see the rest of the set.
Not impressed in the slightest. Overlord should be looking like the big, hardassed, wrecker killer mofo from LSOTW, not this.
At most, i'm buying Metelhawk. Pissed aint the word.
