c/o Autobot78 of TFW2005


i promise you bro there is a base mode, i have had pics of it for months, why they want it to be last minute i dont know, but two reviewers have their wfc omegas in customs and im sure they will show the base mode. i was told not to show it so i have to honor their wishes until they say its ok, but the arms do come off and combine to make a rocket and the rest is made into a launch side platform thingy

Yeah the arms do look less huge than before. Looks like the colour pallette has been muted somewhat and this has made all the difference in my opinon. This is as perfect a WFC figure as we are likely to see! Hasbro, take note (better bring a whole pad)

does look rather snazzy now. been a bit of a rollercoaster this guy. won't get him myself, he's just too expensive for me, but looks like he'll be good for those that do. wouldn't mind seeing him up against one of the Devastators we've got recently.

if you look at the imageshack gallery at the pic with the empty box and instructions you can see that there is a drill tank mode.

so thats robot, battleship,drill tank, and possibly base mode ( the existance of which is supported by a cannon arm that we know detaches for transformation at least and a tank drone that would serve no purpose except in defending a base like the original os)

THATS FOUR MODES all of them pure awesome and he's huge, and he lights up, and he is sturdy enough to hold a supreme figure over his head with one arm unsupported for hours, plus a little drone guy like the g1 baseformers of old.

i mean, holy sh**! GIMME GIMME GIMME GIMME NOW!!!!!!!!

Not sure if anyone mentioned it yet or not, but ToyArena is carrying him too:
This product will be in stock on Thursday 28 February.
I may get him there since they're one of the online retailers I trust and have used pretty frequently. I notice their price is $350 though, and I think one retailer (RK) has him for $300, but then I'd have to pay shipping to the US, which I'm certain won't be cheap for something this large (likely around $30~$40) and would take forever to get here anyway, so I think I'll just do ToyArena for this guy.

Read the thread. It's not generalizing, it's the truth. They ripped me for even suggesting a G1 add on set from Crazy Devy. "Oh it would ruin the figure" and "It's FOC not G1". Now they hear about a base mode and they wet their pants. What happened to all that FOC love ? Now all of a sudden you want G1... LMAO :lol:

It's worth consideration that it's probably twice the mass of YOTS Omega.

Base mode is nice, but ... those arms and legs still turn me off to the figure.

In the end, I still want YotS more. I could even be happy with my Energon Omega Supreme.

Apparently you don't know what I mean by generalizations. We all didn't wet our pants. We all didn't rip you for suggesting a G1 add-on. Some of us questioned the reasoning for such a G1 add on for a clearly non G1 figure and only ripped you on generalizing and overall tone. I'm not sure about a link between G1 type arms ad-on and a basemode/rocket, either.

So, thank you again... >:oP

Edit: Oh, and those pictures are not helping my impulsive nature. They look awesome! He looks awesome! I love how they were able to get it to transform into the ship from the video game. I wonder how much, if any of it, is parts forming between bot and ship mode.

I just got Genesis in today. This thing is to WfC Omega Supreme what MP-10 (for me at least) is to Optimus Prime. It is perfectly accurate.

One issue of note is that the shoulder for the cannon arm (at least on mine) is slightly loose so it doesn't support the weight of the cannon very well when it's stretched out. I suspect I can tighten a few screws to fix that though. His elbow joints support the weight of his cannon and claw just fine.

I haven't played with transforming him yet, all I've done is pose him, rotate his turrets out and put an Autobot symbol (thanks Reprolabels) on his chest in a very conveniently shaped space provided on the mold.

If you have the means and want a perfect representation of WfC Omega Supreme, I highly recommend him.
