Ok, to me, that picture justifies Overlord being the Bludgeon mold. Totally sick. This could be female too ya know, didn't Overlord have two components? This one could be the girl, the design makes sense in that sort of Cybertron Overide kinda way...

Cool! Good luck to all of you going for the Iacon Package. I was sort of tempted, but some b*tch punk stole my credit card details a couple of days ago, so I'll be waiting a on new card which will probably arrive too late to order a set. Ah well, I'm not too fussed; would have been pretty expensive to import it to Europe anyhow.

Basically, keep the Japanese Masterforce Overlord the Transtector, and the US fiction "Overlord" Gigatron as two separate concepts, and you're good.

I'm more worried about having enough money when those sets roll out... :BANG_HEAD:

I keep getting the message "Access Denied - Your account has expired."
Which is very untrue. Meh, didn't really want the set anyway.

Considering what happened to Overlord during Last Stand of the Wreckers, I would imagine this would be a good body for him to transition to. He was already looking quite the metal skeleton, as I recall.
