    I know that the main knock on this guy has been the QC issues, but damn, he definitely is a great looking figure, even without the upgrade/add-on sets. It's a shame the QC issues have really held this figure back from its full potential

    You all know bout the loose shoulder fix for blitzwing right? The one where you take him apart, 5 screws total, shave down the inner plastic, then reassemble?

    I have 4 of this mold. Had to do it to each one, including double dealer. But once done right, talking night and day ppl. You have to really work it to get the arms loose.

    As for the hips, I bleed some crazy glue in there and kept moving it back and forth until the glue dried. It leaves behind a thin solid film, adds some friction, with out fusing.

    Yup did the same thing with my Blitzwing and Double Dealer. Much better figures now and no need for add-on shoulder bits :thumbs2: 

    I guess the SXS and Dr Wu kits are for people who don't like to crack open their figures.

    I'm personally getting the Dr Wu set for the head and larger gun. I gave Blitzwing's pea shooter to Double Dealer so he can dual wield pea shooters.

    EDIT:
    Also for the loose hips issue, if super/crazy gluing joints scares people, I find Future floor polish will do the same job and does not have the risk of permanently fusing the joints together.

    That doesn't work for everybody. Easier to just get Fakebuker83's shoulder piece.

    Nice work. Though I think it'd be better suited with its own thread in Radicons :)

    While upgrading Revolver, RiftShot, and Recoiler with Corer technology, Steel was able to implement upgrades that let the corers bring in additional energy from the robots and channel it through both the Corers and their weapons.

    It's a crime that you don't do this for a living. Really, you probably could make even the worst Transformer look the best.

    D: he's beautiful. Man...I've been trying to hunt down an Overlord and the only word on the street is that of MMC's Carnifex. Which appears to be on hold. Consider me uber jelly of that figure, amico ;) . A job well done!

    Yep I don't understand why 3rd party's haven't picked up on Overlord popularity :( 

    Instead of 3 sets of,predakings. 2/ 3 sets of Dinobots, MP ultra Magnus (when official is coming out) but no Overlord?

    Maybe Hasbro can make one since they are doing IDW :D 

    Anyways thanks bro!

    I know, right? I mean, Overlord only returned in the comics as an active character, what, a year ago? Come ON, we should have a dozen not-Overlords in our collections by now! :p 

    BTS has an Overlord due in June… MMC's is in the works, but they've gotta finish Feral Rex and the 4 fembots at the very least before he'll be anywhere close to production (possibly with Seraph and maybe Rapidus Hexatron & recolors of Terminus Hexatron before Carnifex, too).

    Ya know, I was thinking about it tonight in light of various negative reactions to certain reveals over the past couple of days. While everyone is entitled to not like what they wish....

    ...I'm just thrilled to live in a world where these exist.
