    Yeah... I don't like this mold enough to get it a second time. Looks alright, but my regular Override is enough for me.

    Ok, so the other pics online looks like at one point she was going to be a dark grey now she's a white/light-grey. I prefer this look over the other photos we have seen, but i think a lot of kids will overlook this figure as being the same as the original override. I can see where it's differnt, but at first glance I bet a lot of kids think it's the same one.

    She was always going to be white/light-grey, the first photos we got were just really poorly lit to show it.

    Eh... it's not that bad... actually I like it better than the original Override... and she can always be another character in my collection anyways. :D 

    Hey, is there any chance that we can see the bio? I'm interested to see what Hasbro pulls out of their arse for her bio.

    glad the toy is white instead of what looked like grey in the other photos. I still think the colours are different enough from the original, but it is an improvement. Still think I'll pass though, I'm not a big fan of the toy.

    Hope we get to see some in-package pics of Shortround and Repugnus next!

    You know... I'm really digging the boxart... it's ashame that they couldn't re-engineer the figure so that she'd look as feminine in person as she does on the box.

    yeah, the Boxart is pretty cool. In fact, all the Boxart from Cybertron is truly amazing! (Brimstone, Scourge and Starscream are personal favourites). I wonder who is/are the artist(s)?

    Boxart aside, Override GTS is a pretty mediocre repaint... like I stated above, there just isnt enough difference in colours with the original to be worth it.

    I was sort of hoping this'd end up as a male or something, and just took it as 100% likely it'd be a Decepticon. Man, what gives.

    It seems to me there's two main artists that do the box art-- one I don't like (who did Optimus Prime, Megatron, both versions of Red Alert, etc.), and one I REALLY like (Brimstone, Override GTS, the Armada remolds, etc.). The latter kinda looks like Dan Khanna's art, but I'm not sure. Regardless, he should do all of 'em. Whee!

    QFT This Transformer will be DoubleClutch in my collection. I only hope the face won't be orange or even gold like Nitro Convoy's. Maybe gray like Dark Nitro Convoy? :)  (As in the box art?)

    I was wondering about that. What exactly did happen to Hasbro's trademarking Octane's name? (Ditto for Doubleclutch.) They lost it already?

    What is confusing about this is that it was stated at Botcon originally that this toy WAS going to be named Override GTS, but then Entertainment Earth and a few other places listed it as being called Doubleclutch, and now it's Override GTS again...
