Greetings Transformers fans.
I am happy to present my first crossover Transformers custom. This GI Joe crossover practically oozes 80's vintage goodness. It features the iconic Japanese Godmaster Overlord. Included are Chief Giga and Chief Mega complete with their golden bracelets. This time around the partners are the brother/sister team of Zartan and Zarana. The vehicles are both vintage Cobra. The eloquent Night Raven and the iconic HISS tank! When combined, they form the terrifying Overlord.
As always I have embedded a video with literally, HUNDREDS of extra pictures. Including some stop motion that demonstrates how this beast transforms. So PLEASE, watch the video in its' entirety. And while you're there, feel free to subscribe!
This might be my last custom Transformer for a while. GetRightRobot is moving in a new direction. BUT, we will not be leaving the Transformers community. If you go ahead and subscribe to the youtube channel, you will be able to stay current with what GRR has to offer your collection!
Details? Sure. There were 283 pieces individually cleaned, prepped and airbrushed for this big boy. He is 26" tall and the Mega Jet alone is over 2 feet long! There are 53 moving parts including 37 ratchet joints. The neck alone has 3" of optional travel, 3 ratchet joints, and a nice stiff ball joint in the head to allow superhuman range of posing. The legs slide (HISS tank halves) onto pins and then snap into place and ABSOLUTELY cannot fall off accidentally. The drone or piggyback jet fits securely onto the Night Raven (Mega Jet) and into the right hand by interlocking into the thumb and finger. Utilizing a stern peg in the 'trigger' to prevent falling. This guy was BOLTED together using mostly 8-32 screws and nuts. This massive custom needed more than glue. The aesthetics of the robot mode were inspired by Overlord's appearance in Last Stand of the Wreckers and the head was modeled to reflect that design. The front of the jet/shield attaches to the left arm via a heavy, interlocking peg that sits on a swiveling ratchet joint. The Zarana (Mega) and Zartan (Giga) features G1 toy paint schemes and 'backpacks'. Their packs can post into Overlords chest as the G1's did. Either figure can pilot any of the 5 available cockpits. Any 3 and 3/4 GI Joe is compatible with this set.
I used mostly flat finishes that leave a very convincing para-military finish with all manners of techniques applied for details. There are 9 different metallic colors in the tank treads alone. Cobra/Decepticon symbols adorn the exterior of all 3 vehicles. There really is too much detail to list. THAT's why you should watch the video! This figure was built tough, to last transformation after transformation. I'm no photographer. The impression in person is almost unnerving. He is as large as a small child. You will not be disappointed.
This auction includes both vehicles (tank and jet) the drone jet (rifle) four missiles, two human figures (Zartan and Zarana), two hand guns, two backpacks and I will provide a copy of E. Perez's fantastic artwork that was featured in the video. And I mean a nice lithographic print of the 3 images compiled. That's it. The other figures in the video are for reference only. If you have any questions, ANY, please contact me. I will answer every email as best I can.
Shipping for this 20lbs. giant will be a flat $40.00 usd for US addresses. Shipping will include every tracking and insurance option known to mankind. I will ship out the enormous box the following business day after payment is made. Payment must be made within 3 days of the auctions ending. PayPal only. If payment is not made, I reserve the right to relist the item, offer a second chance to the running up bidder and/or file a nonpayment complaint with ebay. This is a one-of-a-kind custom that took months to create. Whoever wins this, will love it. So if you're not going to pay, don't bid and waste their time.
Ok, I'm opening this up to everyone. After some good transactions with some people in China, (I'm talking about you Alvin) I am lifting my personal ban. I will offer shipping WORLDWIDE, but please contact me first for a shipping quote. It will be much more expensive to send a package this size overseas. Thank you very much for your interest and good luck!
