TFW: These images really show us the extent of the retooling done to the molds, as these 3 figures are based off of Titans Return/Legends Misfire, Twintwist, and Overlord. Important to note is that the tank half of Overlord appears to have had the turret removed entirely, allowing Dai Altas to have 1 singular alternate mode as a jet with tank treads underneath.
