Welcome to the Outpost. Today I’m hitting up a character that I didn’t know much about until I started collecting G.I.Joe. 1992 introduced Overkill the B.A.T. leader. This is an interesting character. He started out a 3rd generation B.A.T. and ended up being more advanced than the rest of the BATs.
He was kind of a goof in the cartoon, but he seemed like he should have been or perhaps would have been a bit more ruthless had he been thought up in the 80s. I often wonder if the Star Wars androids influenced the BATs or if the BATs influenced the Star Wars battle droids. I also thought that he may have been an influence on General Grievous as well. All and all I think it would be cool to see a modern update of this figure and maybe a 6 inch version, but that would be way down the line. Who is a fan of Overkill? Sound off AFTER THE JUMP and let us know! Make sure to check back for our next discussion.
