E Omega Supreme/Sentinel swap

Postby TM Rawhide » Sun Jan 22, 2006 1:33 pm

When I had finally decided to get the Energon Omega mold, my choice really went to Sentinel since I liked his colorscheme a lot better. Unfortunately, he seemed somewhat hard to get, unless I was willing to shell out big time -- which I wasn't.

One search on e-bay went wrong. I made a typo, and I wasn't the only one :D And so I got my hands on a cheap E Omega Supreme; after international shipping I had to pay $ 23 (approx 19 euro). Of course, the catch was that he wasn't complete: no missiles, no transformable head and he missed two little panels on his left foot (something I didn't notice until I got Sentinel). But I had Omega Supreme.

And then, a few months later, I did manage to get a reasonably priced Omega Sentinel. And I loved him. Such a cool colorscheme. But as I put the two of them together, I quickly saw a way to really improve on Sentinel. And all it took was a screwdriver and some time.

The same parts that were orange on Sentinel, were red on Supreme. I don't mind orange, but I just felt it looked stupid on Sentinel. With the red parts from Supreme he looks a lot better IMO. (Just a shame my Supreme came without a head, because it means there still a little bit orange on Sentinel: his head.)

As for Supreme...well, he looks okay as well. Funny thing is, with the orange parts from Sentinel, Supreme looks more geewun accurate -- and I feel that orange works better with yellow.

It's a very simple swap and I'm surprised I have never seen or heard that others did it as well. (Maybe because it's too simple :lol:

Wow, that does look a lot better. I wouldn't mind doing this to my figures as well.

Everything that's orange on Supreme came from Sentinel (while those same parts in red went to Sentinel). This includes:

- right hand/claw,
- left shoulder joint,
- Panel on the left leg
- left hip joint (not seen in robot mode, but visible in ship mode)
- In ship mode there's another piece of orange plastic that covers up the hollow chest (is on the other side of the bridge tower of the orange/red part from the left hip joint).

(The body of the head robot is also orange on Sentinel, but since I missed the counterpart from Supreme that's still the original.)
