There are a lot of names they could have reused that I don't think anyone would have been particularly upset about. The first idea that came to mind was Scorchfire, but thinking it over I think my favorite name reuse option would be to call him Overload and have him be a G1 counterpart to the Armada guy.
While I like the idea, there already is a G1 Overload.
While not Armada, we do have Galaxy Prime, and they are at least the same character.
But regular Armada Overlord isn't gonna look great as armor for prime. But maybe Costco Yellow might.
Put him in a 2-pack with a Dirge-colored Siege Seeker, then we'll talk.
