Just remember that WFC Trypticon turns into a space cannon. His alt mode isn't visually much more appealing than Omega's.

Yep, too true. I'm a fan of both their alt modes myself, but that's probably just because I've played the games and I enjoyed them, so I actually prefer that they be game-accurate. I'm not looking for this (or any other 3rd party or Hasbro WfC/FoC figure) to fit into my Classics/Neo-G1 etc. collection. I've got an entire shelf devoted to the toys from the games, and that's where this guy (and Trypticon if they make one, please please please :PRAY: ) would go if I got him.

Now that you mention it....

This thing looks pretty darn good. I have Encore Omega and am considering the Energon repaint. However, this one holds pretty darn true to the game. It's got LEDs. If BBTS carries this again...

So, I started making fun of myself like crazy...

:lol: my sentiments exactly (and my wallet's too :P). I had it on preorder up until BBTS pulled it. If it goes back up, so will my preorder.

Serenity is one of the most beautiful ship designs in sci-fi. So no, I don't see Serenity when I look at this junker.

Well that's the answer to whether or not it's partsformer.
edit: or perhaps they just isolated the parts to show the lightup feature.

G1 Omega supreme is a Parts former, which I think, this figure also puts a homage to. Have they shown WFC OS (in-game) to have a tank?

Not to my recollection, and I've played the story-line a lot. I'm betting the head/tank is an homage.

And what can be better? It's a toy that's also...a flashlight!! (Gotta find some justification for the accountant, er, wife.)

Man, I wish this was about a hundred dollars cheaper....

Hey look, American retailer!

Still on the fence about it (ie - no preorders for me), but for those hot-blooded (and full-walleted) Americans, here's your chance to pick one up.

Yep, he's got some odd proportions, but it's dead on perfect to how he looks in the game (big hands/gun/claw and all). Even the vehicle mode is perfect.

This thing is so very tempting, but I'll wait until it's actually instock before biting. I do NOT pay for preorders. No toys in-hand, no money in-hand :P (OK, I paid for Trailerforce in advance, but I gotta have that thing).
