    Product Description
    The name or term "Over-Run" refers to more than one character or idea. For a list of other meanings, see Over-Run (disambiguation).Over-Run is a Decepticon Commander from the Power Core Combiners portion of the live-action film series continuity family. ^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^HOver-Run is a menace, plain and simple. It's not that he's stupid. He simply delights in chaotic, unpredictable, and above all destructive actions, never missing an opportunity to make a bad situation even worse. He may have been given command of the Stunticon drones because of the tactical value of these wild rampages to the Decepticons. On the other hand, it might just be because no one else could be found to work with him. Contents1 Toys1.1 Power Core Combiners2 Notes3 References Toys Power Core Combiners Former tempest in a teacup.Over-Run with Stunticons (Power Core Combiners 5-pack, 2011)Accessories: Drift Racer Drone, Junker Drone, Rocket Truck Drone, Street Racer Drone The only new item in the fifth and final wave of Power Core Combiners team sets, Over-Run is a redeco of Leadfoot, transforming into a kinda-sorta-F1-ish race car. His front end features a flip-up Mini-Con Powerlinx plug. In robot mode, his chest-canopy has a flip-down panel that reveals another flip-up Powerlinx plug so he can use a Mini-Con in armor mode. He can also transform into a "power up" mode; a super-robot torso that uses the drone-units from the Power Core Combiners 5-packs as limbs, though the defaults are the Stunticons he comes packed with. As the fourth wave of 5-packs only barely hit retail, the fifth was even harder to find. In fact, for the most part, Over-Run was only available through online outlets... at first.More information on Over-Run at TFU.info Sledge doesn't see why he has to be roped into all this.Power Core Combiners Special Value Offer (2011) Over-Run was also made available as part of a Walmart-exclusive Black Friday "Value Pack", combining a 5-pack team with a Commander 2-pack via packaging tape and a couple of stickers, for the whopping price of ten bucks, merely a third of what the two toys would normally cost. So far, Over-Run has been found with the Sledge/Throttler, Salvage/Bomb-Burst, and Steelshot/Beacon sets attached. Notes Remove a sticker, cause an international incident.Given that Over-Run's drones share their name with a G1 combiner team, it seems likely that his alternate mode and deco are based on a member of that combiner team. Why he does not share that character's name may have something to do with trademark issues.Not being named Drag Strip, Over-Run was going to be named Spastic. When originally solicited online with this name, a storm of controversy erupted in the Transformers fandom[1], due to the fact that "spastic", in the United Kingdom, Australia, and some other regions, is a very derogatory word for people suffering from neurological disorders. A lot of shouting about the issue took place, with many American fans pointing out that the word has little pejorative impact in North America; the controversy eventually grew to the point that it even spread outside of the fandom to UK tabloid newspapers and even radio and TV comedians. When questioned, a Hasbro representative admitted to the company being unaware of the offensive connotation of the word in other countries, and that they had meant no offense by it. It was also noted that the toy would not be made available via retail channels in Europe, including the United Kingdom.[2] Nonetheless, Eric Siebenaler confirmed soon after that "Spastic" would indeed be getting a name change; perhaps a consequence of the fact that while Hasbro UK did not sell it themselves, some UK retail chains had imported previous Power Core Combiner assortments directly from Hasbro US, and could unwittingly have done the same with this one (though in the end up, they didn't). Around the same time, Transformers (2010) Strafe's online bio described him as "spastic". He soon became merely "twitchy". The toys with "Spastic" printed on their boxes had already been produced, and stickers with the name "Over-Run" were placed over the previous printed name. The only place where the name "Over-Run" is printed is the back of the instruction sheet. Over-Run's normal robot mode head is facing backwards in one of his stock photos.
