Well, you learn something new every day! I have seen the Energon Omega Supreme before and kinda like his general appearance but Energon Prime is pretty odd looking, but I never knew they combined to form a chunky Optimus Supreme!! 8)

This form makes me appreciate E Prime a little better, but only combined.
It will be interesting to see the new redecos but I doubt we'll see them combined until they are in-hand?

Im off to look around the toy galleries to see what else Ive missed out on over the last umpteen years!!! :D

I like how the News Crew just started throwing around GDO but no one even knew what it meant, not even the Bossman. XD. Well, mystery solved!

As for these, the idea is cool but I can never afford these Japanese exclusives, so if they come to fruition, I shall have to pass.

Asian. :lol: Hasbro releases them. I'm sure they will end up going over to the US too, like the current deluxe (Springger, Wheelie...) and voyagers (Hotspot, Megatron...). I have no idea what GDO stands for...

I hope Omega gets a G1 paintjob... No interest in Prime though, I hate that mold.

My bad, yes, Asian exclusives. Still, import figures are almost always beyond my budget.

Well, since the basic mold is gone, all we have is Transmetal and Beast Machines. I don't care which one, for I'm a rat in Chinese Astrology. ;)

I like the Transmetal. I suppose Omega's alt mode is vaguely snake-like. Lord knows Optimus Prime's movie-look with the trailer wasn't very dragon-like. Year Of The Rat could just be a redeco of Starscream or something. Or...A blue Universe 2.0 Powerglide, because it's a RATtler.

Courtesy of HK-TF we get our first color image of the recently discovered "Year of the Snake" reissue of Energon Omega Supreme. The image, which appears to come from a solicitation, looks to be the same as the original release. Though this could just be a placeholder image, time will tell. Check him out below.

Yeah this seems pretty pointless, unless your someone that missed out on this mold. Funny thing is I recently parted with mine about a month ago cuz I really wanted the much better looking Omega Sentinel. The powers really should have considered G1 paint apps but oh well it's still a awesome TF...'nuff said! :VEHI:

Yeah, if the Year of the Snake just happened to be associated with the shade of purple used on the Dark Guardians in Forever is a Long Time Coming, then we'd have something to get excited about.

Then again, every time this guy gets any attention, it just reminds me that we'll probably never get Animated Omega Supreme, so I'd still be depressed at the end of the day...like a snake eating it's own tail...and a balloon and...something bad happens...

It's probably a placeholder, guys. As in, it's an existing image standing in for the real one.

Those highlights were on the Energon Omega Supreme stock photo, which is what this is.

ah, that's a bit better then. G1 Omega, or Guardian Robot blue and white would be my preferred colour-schemes, but if they wanted to switch it up a little the pre-TF red and black was pretty nice too.

We can only hope. Any how this figure set has quite a bit of potential; so I have my fingers crossed for something gody and awesome. Also I missed out on the mold when it was first released sooo yeah been looking.

I hope it's a placeholder picture. If not... well, already got it. If it's released in G1 colors, I'd get it for my Classics shelf.

I'd find it very strange for this not to be a placeholder. I mean...did the Year of the Dragon Jetwing Prime do so badly they don't have the money (or more probably, don't think the money is worth it) to put into a redeco of Energon Omega, perhaps? Frankly, as long as the price is reasonable, I'm really quite interested in both, since I don't have the originals.

Having just bought E Omega last year to be my Classics OS, a small, selfish part of me wants this to be the original color scheme.

But, yeah, I don't see why they'd just re-release this as it was. Make it G1 colored. Or ... soemthing.

Although, why they're release such a large, clear teaser image with a placeholder makes me wonder if they just weren't lazy about this. Of course we have yet to see Prime here. Maybe he's recolored?

Well I'm a little surprised. That thing was a hot seller here in the beaches that I never got my hands on one. Even if I had the chance at some point, budget held me back :(
