    I had a little time to give them a redesign today, taking extra care to make them 'thin' enough so that Overlord's covers cap over them nicely.
    Also added those little nubs at the sides to help them stay tightly in the cavities. Gonna test them now!

    The upgrades look great man. A little off topic, but what make/colour of paint did you use on Dreadnaught? That blue matches really well.

    Ordered in WSFP, painted with Testors metallics silver and gold, came out great (with the standard caveat about the quality of the WSF material). Doors close almost all the way, but I think that is because of the paint and sealant, they closed all the way before I painted them when I test-fitted. They feel a bit tight putting them in, but they still pop out very easy if you lift up from the bottom (from the "head peg" part). They fit snug and do not fall out at all.

    I used Gunze Sangyo Mr Color No. 328 "Blue FS15050" I believe.

    Thanks for the feedback! From the image they look pretty nice mounted on like that. Thank you for painting them up so nicely and sharing :)

    To be honest I was more than a bit disappointed with TR Overlord when I got him at last, but these upgrades make him feel like what he should have been in the first place.

    I can't say I was disappointed. I knew what was coming because of SkyShadow, him being a "pre-tool" as he is (though admittedly with an entirely different torso). The only thing that really disappointed me with Overlord was his lack of the iconic cannon.

    I can't believe this is the only shoulder kit for Overlord. Definitely going to save up for those.

    By the way you don't need to remove the head to replace it, you can just remove the cap by taking out the pin and just replace that.
