SDF-1 looks alright, but SBY looks just as bad as OS's battleship to me. For something space related that is.

It's probably that I was young and impressionable when all that Japanese Animation stuff came out that the Yamato aesthetic is pleasing. I see what you are saying. I think the reason is that battleships like the Bismarck and Missouri were just so cool...

Simply not digging this. I feel like (if they are indeed trying to make YoTS Omega more G1) they've done it via what was in my opinion the worst feature of the figure: the base mode. I would have loved a blaster hand (not a strictly G1 accurate one, just one that looks like it could seriously annihilate something) something to make the front of the construction vehicle more tank-like, maybe even a new joint to add shoulder elevation to the claw arm.

I first saw the image of this upgrade set on a random Google image search, and I thought someone had PhotoShopped two pieces of Scalextric track to the figure. :SICK:

YES!

I have been a big supporter of genesis and i will be getting it either way but now i may need to get yots os and this set as well because i am a BIG sucker for city/base bots. But only if maketoys or someone makes a blaster arm and it would be nice if the tracks/wings weren't so honkin huge, maybe fold in half for bot mode?




Same here. I have been hesitant to pull the trigger on the YoS OS but this Maketoys upgrade kit might push me over the edge. Only trouble is that Maketoys tends to be pretty expensive and the upgrade kit will probably be more than the YoS itself if their other kits are any indication of price.

Hmmm, coming along nicely, but Primus knows how much this will cost - it lloks to be a lot of plastic, plus the electronics as well.

Was not expecting the cannon add-on for the other arm. Very nice~! Looks like I made the right choice in picking up the YotS Omega for this add-on, rather than taking on Project Genesis.

Just hope the price isn't -that- much more than Maketoy's Battle Tanker offerings.

Not bad. Like the cannon for the arm.

Not sure if this is a must buy for me. I don't have that much shelf space, but this might be buyable just to make OS more complete.

Friggin'. Awesome. :APPLAUSE:

I was initially underwhelmed and not sure looking at the silhouettes, but this has jumped on to my 'Must Have' list. I'm very happy they took the opportunity to add a new blaster for his left arm. The tracks/wings are a bit wide but I get why that is. Looking at the connecting edges of it I'm wondering if some additional track will be made available to complete a circuit. The launch pad looks pretty comprehensive but very cool, if a little kibble-tastic in robot mode. The lighting feature looks badass. Now I'm just wondering what the significance of the cage at the top of the claw arm is.

The only thing I'd like now is a modification to allow for more shoulder articulation on the claw arm.

Welcome back, MakeToys. :DANCE:

I really do love nearly everything about this upgrade. My problem is shelf space. I use Ikea shelves and I had to move literally my entire Classics collection on every shelf to make room for YOTS Omega as it is and this is going to make it even bigger! Still, I already know I'm going to have to get another shelving unit for Metroplex so it's not a deal breaker. I don't mind the ship arm as I've had the Energon Omega Sentinel since it came out so I'm used to it but it is a nice piece. It'll really come down to cost for me. I love my Omega even without all of that!

I agree, 100%.

After seeing these pictures I was checking out my Omega. I'm interested to find out how the rails attach to the back.
