Transformer of the Day for May 3, 2009

OVERDRIVE

-Faction: Autobot (Omnibot)
-Era:
Generation One (1984-92)
-Function: Strategist
-Motto:
The Key to Victory is in the Mind’s Eye”
-Notable Toy: Diaclone (Takara, 1983)

Notes: Billed as Reinforcements from Cybertron, the Omnibots were a trio of Autobots exclusives available as a direct mail order. Reissues of original Diaclone figures, the Omnibots were smaller than their deluxe Autobot brethren and didn’t get airtime. That they were unavailable in stores added to their appeal. Overdrive, the lamborghini, came with three guns and, best of all, a front cannon and wings. Tracks was not the only flying car in these days!

  1. I have no real attachment to this guy but occasionally I try to win one on ebay.

    I just think he’s cool looking mostly.
