really hoping the big hunk of whatsit on his back can become a sword. not because overlord is a big sword using guy, but just cause it'd be awesome.

it would also be nice to not have a big "hunk o whatsit" on his back. though for a big hunk of anything it doesnt look too bad.

ya know looking at it the big flat piece of the carrier on his back looks to be two, dare i say, sword like pieces ala movieverse prime swords, tabbed together like a puzzle piece. hmmmm.

still not seing a base mode though, gotta have a base mode imo. nothing cooler than a giant base former. If it did have such a mode there would finally be a decepticon base of almost equal porportions to fortmax.

I like what I'm seeing. I'm not stringent to the original G1 character so I like this, even the carrier mode.

I don't get why so many people are dissing the tank though. I like the futuristic look of it.

it's nice to see people trying something different with tanks, and I do like all the stuff coming out of the turret, but the body/treads look quite bland, and I'm a little put off by the split in the middle. Even so, it's bloody huge and with the carrier and jet modes being so sweet, I can forgive a tank I'm not entirely happy with.

Unfortunately, I think the carrier is supposed to be their representation of a "base". It would be about the same scale size wise. I dont like the concept either. I hate it when they deviate from original alt modes. Im not a big "neo" fan.

yeah i like updated versions of the original modes like most of the classics line for example. so this would ideally be a jet and a tank that combine into a jank or tet lol. but most importantly, to me anyways, is that a large figure such as this ought to have it's base mode. honestly the lack of a base mode may be a deal breaker for me, which is unfortunate, cuz this looks cool even if the alt modes aren't exactly correct. idk. time, pics, and price will tell. supposedly genesis has a base mode we haven't seen yet according to some guy whose been putting out pics but planet x wants to wait to make that a final reveal i guess. im hoping thats what might happen here.....

Very nice update. I'm watching Super God Masterforce right now. I'd love to have this in my collection.

But, alas, I'm afraid it's going to fall into my wish basket, like Genesis. Who knows though. If this waits to come out til much later in the year, I might just have the funds.

Time to work on that promotion...

Not bad. The head sculpt & gaps on the legs could use some refinement, but otherwise looks pretty good. It's MASSIVE. I'm ot too interested in purchasing it but would like to see the final product for curiosity's sake.

while BTS has a dark cloud over them from previous quality concerns, I must admit the design work that went into this guy is top notch. Much better than their Soundwave and Minicassettes.

The tank mode is pretty terrible, I don't mind that it's neo or whatever, but it doesn't have to look crap. It's a shame because the Jet is a beaut.

since the jet is a Cobra Night Raven, it would have been great (and probably an instant purchase for me) if the tank was a HISS.

a hover tank? it just looks like a plastic brick at an odd angle with a cannon on top.
If they made tracks that could go on the side then it would look ok. At present its a 10/10 for jet mode and 2/10 for tank
