- Motto: "I am the seeker of power."
- Weapon: Razor Tipped Wing Swords
I've seen someone mod a Drift/Blurr mold so that it has a waist joint. If whoever is doing these can remold the torso of that mold to have a rotating waist above the hinge for the windshield, and below as to actually have a working waist joint, then that mold can look like a pretty good Overdrive.
For transformation you'd spin it around at the new joint above the hinge and end up putting the windshield over the clasp for the large sword/gun that's supposed to be on the back. You'd also spin the arms around 180 degrees so that the elbows bend the correct way (the wheels on the inside of the arms don't get in the way), switch the fist and turn the head. What this all would accomplish is make the car front shoulder kibble point forward kinda like the IDW Bumblebee/Nightbeat mold. While it's not quite a car front on the chest like it's supposed to be, it's the visual cues in robot mode along with what the alt mode can do that will make this.
In alt mode, if you detach the doors and lower them down and fold over the windows, they look like wings. They also happen to be in the correct location of the wings of G1 Overdrive. If they're really feeling inventive, there is a lot of room under the front of the car where the head is for some type of weapon to be stored there that can be deployed if you open up the front end like you're transforming it for robot mode. That new weapon can also be deployed over the chest in robot mode making it look even more like the G1 version. As a bonus, having the arms backwards means the shoulder kibble would move above the head instead of below when you move the arms forward so that they're out of the way and no longer bump into the back of the figure.
Those of you with a shattered glass Drift (or regular or Blurr) could switch the arms at the shoulders to better see what I'm getting at.
Camshaft aka Downshift as Wheeljack can only be more perfect if it was a new mold dedicated to the character.
Downshift aka Camshaft as Ironhide though, is different. Someone said that it could homage X-Brawn and if that's the case it's fine so long as they're using the shattered glass Soundwave retool. However that is unlikely as the Asian three pack releases of Ironhide and Ratchet don't seem to. If it's not meant to be an homage then Classics Bumblebee might be a better choice. The arms can be deployed in car mode like the G1 toy and they could even retool the jet ski into a missile pack that can attach to the spoiler of the car mode.
Alpha Trion looks amazing.
FoC Fallen, too small. I'd rather see the new "leader" class Megatron redid as the Fallen without even having seen the mold yet. Someone said to use the Universe Onslaught mold instead. Maybe that's something that could be done soon as the company that did the ko for that mold is making repaints and retools based on different characters. They're currently doing Strika and Impactor retools of it and plan on doing more.
Sunstreaker police type, meh. Cool but uninteresting.
Smokescreen, if that's meant to be the G2 version then why not just use Energon Starscream? Or any deluxe jet for that matter. I'd rather an Alternators Smokescreen than a G2 Decepticon Smokescreen from the Classics/Universe mold or you know, blue Bluestreak.
Deadlock/Decepticon Drift, meh again.
Beast Hunters Silverbolt, awesome. Give me BW and Universe colors and Tigerhawk and Razorclaw retools. Oh and Windrazor too.
Goshooter is kinda cool I guess. It's more than a "meh" anyway.
