Money no object, I'd have to say I'd prefer to get Genesis over Generations Platinum. It's closer to the G1 incarnation, and so by my standards, a better contender for my Classics collection. But the oversized claw and blaster, the full nappy look and frankly naff alt mode really turn me off.

Looks like I'll be going Supreme-less. :-(

Apart from the red blaster he does look nice, no BBTS listing and that red guarantee that I'm not buying him. That's a good thing with all the must have 3P releases atm ;)

I hate the colors. This thing is supposed to be a replica of WfC Omega Supreme and aside from the colors (which look way too much like a toy/cartoony), it is. If this were a Hasbro release, I'd be anxiously awaiting the inevitably superior and more accurate/realistic/metallic looking Takara release.

Its all about building us up to the release with more teasing promo shots, now this overly dark/photoshopped picture just goes to prove that.
This is soooo not going to be this dark, just look how his 'charged weapon' ;) looks all dull and dark.
Its had the colours darkened so it promotes more conversation.

"Its too dark!"

"That red is too red!"

:D

We will wait for the correct coloured promo shots then cast a proper opinion, obviously! ;)

Seeing him side by side with Herc as me on the fence all of a sudden...

I can imagine him standing next to mine, would look nice, but I just realised that I'd have no where to display him he is so darn big #-o The price and lack of etailers selling him are still stopping me from pre-ordering.

Seems practically perfect in size for those who picked up TFC Herc. And fortunately for me, having picked up Giant, Genesis here would be far too big for my collection making this an easy pass.

Looks pretty nifty though I must say.

How come you don't like the red cannon? I've been seeing this a lot, and I guess I don't understand why people are against it. What would you have preferred?

Looking at Omega in the game, his cannon is a bit rust red. The color here is a bit more vibrant than in the game. That could be the result of camera work (Shockwave purple discussion, anyone?) It could also be a throwback to Omega's original colors, which were grey, vibrant yellow, and vibrant red. Man, I'm glad BBTS isn't carrying this, or I'd likely make an impulse purchase and make my wife really mad. I'm lovin' it!

This pic definitely makes it look better, but I think it is a bit of an optical illusion. The front shot has him looking like Grimhammer Barrelchest. That and the Popeye sized arms and unappealing alt mode are still keeping me away.

While the price is a bit steep, it is still a better value than Herc or Giant for the mass of plastic you are getting. But for that kind of scratch there are still too many issues for me.

I guess I dont like the red arms because Im in the group of people who use WFC/FOC figures as stand ins for my classics shelf. So naturally I want G1 styled beige arms that are a little less bulky. I repurpose WFC/FOC figures and call it my Golden Age of Cybertron Shelf. I mix them with Alpha Trion, Elita-1, Dion, Sideburn, GDO Lazerbeak in jet mode, etc. I dont play the video games or consider them a real continuity. I just consider them nice digital artwork fom a non-gamer stance.

I gotta disagree. Herc is a combiner made out of 6 awesome individual robots. So you are getting your money's worth of engineering and display options. With Omega you are not. Youre spending almost $400 (with shipping) for a posable statue. I havent heard anyone say anything positive about the alt mode on this thread. Have we even seen the whole alt mode together or just bits and pieces ?

Yeah, but when does anyone ever have anything positive to say about anything these days? No one bothers to wait for the release and in-hand images before tearing into something. It's partially because the developers insist on releasing crummy "teaser" pics that usually create more questions then they answer.

But I agree with you about Herc. With the Constructicons, I'm constantly torn between having them as Devastator or the individuals.

Same here, not that I had him preordered anyway (at least not since BBTS cancelled). I was considering preordering elsewhere if the colors were game-accurate but they're not, so instead I'll wait to see if they do a second release with WfC accurate colors and reconsider it then.
