I found the design to be a bit chilling for a child’s toy, considering the exposed face and truly robotic looking body. Maybe I’m just sensitive in that way, but ever since the first time I saw the original Robocop, I’ve felt a bit weird about robots with human flesh faces. Creepy.
Overkill features articulation that’s measurably different from most other figures of the time. Instead of the normal o-ring construction, he has swiveling ball joints at the hips. The figure also has the injection molded shoulders that were a major improvement near the end of the Valor vs Venom series. They allowed for a much smaller shoulder joint, and in this case, the proportions are very accurate.
The figure disassembles at the arms, head and waist, an interesting feature. Unformtunately, this version has no replaceable arm weapon attachments. A later version of the mold would rectify this oversight, giving him a sizeable arm missile. Even without added firepower, he’s an intimidating figure, and one of the best of the era, in my opinion.
