Silverbolt could work, he's big, his alt mode is similar to Overlord's jet component, he has chest flaps, and like Overlord he has the forward section of a jet hanging off his body, Silverbolt just carries his on his back rather than his arm. Slap the colors on there and a new head and it could work. The rest of the set I'm not that excited about.
That's the only idea so far that COULD make sense.
Sad, but true. I say "sad" because I don't think the Universe Cyclonus is bulky enough to properly portray Overload. He's a big guy; not just in size, but in stature.

If he's a former Seeker, he should be black with another color mixed in. Blurr had blue, Goldbug had yellow, Rodimus had purple. Maybe Tracks has red? Shoot, that would make him look even more like Runabout...
Well, TFA The Motor Master was pretty close to Optimus Prime Black Version, who, while not a botCon figure, came out not to long before BotCon 2011.
And, weren't there two same-mold BotCon figures who looked similar released at the same Con one year?
Finaly got around to joining the forums. I'm a customizer from the UK. Very interesting that they have made SW from Ironhide. I did this years ago. If Icould work out how to post pics I would. If you want to see this go to http://www.Sector70.com

? look at the head in altmode.
That guy's Metalhawk is awesome, but of course Botcon if they use the Cyclonus mold will probably just repaint him. Still that is one nice looking robot.
They can give him a remolded head too.

And even with remolding, he'd still look like Cyclonus.
Yes, but Cyclonus' robot mode seems to be the only really good candidate to match Metalhawk's robot mode.
Their wings are even in a similar placement.
Now, yes, his altmode won't look exactly the same, but this is supposed to be Classicverse Metalhawk, not Wings Universe Metalhawk (who was killed, BTW). Not everyone in the Classicverse looks exactly like their G1 bodies. Look at Devastator, for example.
Unless, of course, you have a better suggestion for Metalhawk?

Again, this is Classicverse, not Wing Universe. Wings Universe Metalhawk is dead.
