Cybertron Overlord by Dcjosh gigatron

In your cyber-dreams people...

We all saw the Christmas miracle that was bestowed upon us from Botcon – the brochure and listing of exclusive toys that would be gracing the boxset this year. In a strange turn of events the boxset will have six figures instead of the usual five. Could this mean we are getting extra plastic crack or that it will be comprises solely of deluxes and smaller?

Here’s the roster:
Shattered Glass:

  • Evil Ultra Magnus
  • Evil Tracks
  • Heroic Soundwave
  • Heroic Treadshot


  • Overlord/Gigatron
  • Metalhawk

Twitter has told us that no Armada / Energon / Cybertron molds have been used for this year, thank the Heavens.  So it’s lookin’ like classics molds again, which is all anyone really wants.  Some speculation on the molds to be used are as follows:

Metalhawk as Universe Cyclonus.

Botcon 2012 Metalhawk?

Seems feasible...

Treadshot as Universe Warpath

Shattered Gass Treadshot

No one really knows jack about this guy - Digibash by Air Hammer

Soundwave as Ironhide / Ratchet mold

Shattered Glass Soundwave

Duh. Forget your stupid music label whitewave


Magnus is clearly going to be the G2 Laser Prime mold with a Bludgeon styled head.

Botcon 2012 Ultra Magnus Bludgeon

Magnus Barmitzvah - Spookeee-scarreeee

Evil Track isn’t too hard to decipher – probably a black or red repaint of the current Tracks toy.

Classic Black tracks

Shattered glass on this guy will make him very gay-sad. 🙁

The one big question is is what will Overlord be? Will they focus on the jet? The Tank? BOTH? NEITHER?!!?!? Some possibilities include Deluxe Thunderwing, Ultra Silverbolt, or maybe even Warpath again if Treadshot doesn’t claim the mold. I’m also sniffing around the Cybertronian Megatron mold…  Maybe we’ll get a super treat and have some sort of combiner made of two figures?!? Yeah right, but it’s fun to be a nerd sometimes. Whatever they choose for Overlord, that’s what I am anticipating the most.

Overlord, you fiend!

So what else? What else is bound to come our way? Let’s leave that for another day… or the next post!
