    hey! I posted this in one of the front page threads, but it was quickly buried so i thought it might be interesting to drop here. i took the revealed Jet Mode pic of Black Shadow and silhouetted it in the same style as the Botcon tease of Overlord ~ you can see fairly clearly that there are significant differences between the 2 molds. After doing this, i'm of the opinion the jet half molds may be ENTIRELY different (or at least a total reshell of the jet bits) ~ For example Overlord appears to maintain his SR-71 style Nacelles that would form his arms and shoulders,

    I suspect a heavy retool.

    Tge front of Black Shadow's nosecone cones off to form the stock of his gun. I imagine that's the piece that will be particularly different looking. Also the loss of the center tailfin.

    the entire forward fuselage is shaped differently: Overlord's is wider and smoother/curved (shaped a lot like the front of the Cobra Night Raven actually), Black Shadows is narrower, sharp and angular.

    It just surprises me that they went with the repaint first.

    Thankfully the tank portion is already accurate to G1 Overlord so all retooling will be the jet
