Hello Guest


Description: I really want to like this figure.  But, I find it really tough to use him.  I can't align him with Serpentor.  But, the color doesn't really work anywhere else.

I like this guy, but I think I slightly prefer the original. He definitely looks like he's lording over everyone in this photo, so it's basically perfect!

He's definitely hard to use. RTG hit the nail on the head in regards to how poorly thought out that con set was.

Personally I think the original has a more unique look and is easier to use than this version, but the parts they used on this one look somewhat nicer.

I've always liked the concept of Overlord, but neither of his figures were all that great.

That Overlord is a decent parts combination, and colorscheme. He's just unfortunately a member of the numerous dud Convention Sets from 2003-2006. 
It's amazing how poorly thought out a lot of those Convention Sets actually were. The 2006 one is a mess, it's got an idea ripped off from Devil's Due Comics. A well-done but fairly redundant Major Bludd (The 2001 version wasn't good enough?!?) and a trooper with a great parts combo wasted on yet another overly specific‎ designation. 

The Mortal strikes me as a love him or hate him figure, but I think everyone can agree that's a figure that definitely doesn't fit in with the rest of the set. ‎

Never had Overlord, but between Mindbender and him, you have to wonder about the monocles. It's like they were designing bad guys while watching Hogan's Heroes and a Mr. Peanut commercial came on.

But you are right, his outfit definitely has a Serpentor feel to it.

Interesting idea to put the BAT-pack on the Motor-Viper.
