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!

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.
