4. Overlord. Overlord is known as the “Ambassador of Destruction” during the Transformers: Masterforce series and with good reason. This towering warrior is an amalgamation of the deadliest Decepticon weaponry known, armed with laser blasters and grenade launchers in his stomach, and the terrifying ability to prevent the wounds he inflicts upon his opponents from healing. Overlord is formed from two individual vehicles, a tank and a jet, which combine together to form his colossal robot mode, a heavily-armed advance base, or a larger jet capable of space flight.


3. Great Shot. One of my all-time favorite G1 Transformers was the six-changer, Sixshot. How could you improve upon the Ninja Sixshot? You remold him several new parts including new shoulders and chest pieces, and new robot and animal heads and you top it off with a new paint scheme. The loner character helped the Autobots defeat Deathsaurus in Transformers: Victory.
