Overpower Upgrade Kit - TFNation Exclusive Turns Titan Masters Into Proper Powermasters For Titans Return Overlord
RAC - Sunday, August 06, 2017

The Nottingham Robot Company has posted images to their Facebook page of a new upgrade kit they'll be pre-releasing exclusively at TFNation! It's a simple kit but a good one: a pair of hand-chromed engine blocks convert any two Titan Masters into engine blocks styled after Mega and Giga, Overlord's G1 Powermasters/Godmasters! A head block is also included for Overlord's faceplate, which promises putting the face "in a more prominent position" and with "an easter egg for longtime comic book fans." Keep reading to see the announcement and images!
We promised you a big announcement, and here it is. For the TFNation Convention. An exclusive, third-party item. The Overpower Upgrade Kit! Behold!

From the press release:

“Lose Your Head Get Some Power”
Hot on the heels of Titan’s Return
Overlord(Hasbro) comes an exclusive pre-mass release
version of the“OverPower Upgrade Kit”.

This kit, produced in high grade Acrylic and Polyamide allows you to transform your retail version of the figure into an updated version of the highly sought 1988 Masterforce Tyrant. Turn Overlords TitanMaster Dreadnaut, and any other TitanMaster of your choice (We recommend TerriBull or Ominus), into classic PowerMasters, reminiscent of Mega and Giga, featuring hand chromed engine pieces, designed to be fully interactive with Overlord’s pectoral powercells.

The third part of this kit is a Headblock, allowing you to display your figure’s original faceplate in a more pronounced position, and also featuring an easter egg for long time comic book fans.

This limited UK release also includes all tools and hardware to fit the upgrade kits, including a faceplate fastening screw for the existing headplate, a neck reinforcement screw, and a spareTitanMaster screw for your convenience. Estimated kit fitting time, 5-10 minutes.

OverPower’s initial UK release is limited to 25 sets, and includes an individually numbered trading card featuring tech specs, and exclusive artwork from fan favourite artist ZeroKaiser.

“OverPower” will be initially available in the UK from the Nottingham Robot Company at the Convention TFNation From August 12th at £18.99, and IN China from U-Toy at Comic City GZ at ¥160, From August 14th.

18.99 GBP works out to about $25 USD - not bad for a super-limited upgrade kit.

The second voice actor that TFNation is proud to present for 2018 hails from the land of the early 2000s, and the series that some will argue is called Car Robots, when we all really know it as Robots in Disguise (2001) - please join us in welcoming the man behind Megatron, leader of the Predacons: Daniel Riordan!
Yet another Hasbro Fan media event is behind us at Toy Fair. From this we have lots of photos of current and upcoming toys to obsess over, as we do every year. But that's simply the obvious, most easily visible takeaway from the presentation. But we learn more than that, so it's time to look back over the day and sort out the larger scope of information we've been given from what is arguably our biggest single day of reveals for the whole year. Keep reading!
The smallest gallery to share is that for the standard Masterpiece line. The newest entrant shown is the MP-17+ Prowl featuring animation-inspired deco and which it seems is due to get a same-month release by Hasbro going by indications from some of the US retailers. Also out at the show were Shadow Panther, with a copy of Cheetor out as a point of comparison. And rounding out the upcoming product was Dinobot, making most things around it look small. It seems that several other items were included in the display, but in the form of exclusives and other long-since released products to represent the line. You can check out the photos of the newer products below.
Wonderfest managed to diverge a bit from Toy Fair's presentation this year in the movie product on hand. While the Studio Series line was on full display matching Hasbro's reveal, a few of this year's Movie The Best products were out in the exhibit space too - though it's probably not too unfair to say some of them were rightly outclassed by their brand new Studio counterparts. We also get to see a little bit of Move Masterpiece among these toys, resulting in the movie offerings for this year being nicely represented. Click through to check them out!
Wonderfest is happening in Japan right now. The one day event falls just hours after the first day of Toy fair in New York, and on the Transformers side, and consistent with our earlier speculation much the same lineup of products were on display, albeit with subtle differences. Unfortunately in Power of The Primes those differences are limited to the state of finish of the various items shown, rather than things like actual deco choices. For instance, grey prototypes of Optimal Optimus and Predaking versus color versions. Click through to see these and more!
