Hmm...same prices as BBTS. I guess now it all comes down to a choice in shipping costs.

April?

Robot Kingdom says they're shipping theirs Jan 20th.

Oh well. I got hosed on the price (RK's was much higher than $99) but at least I'm getting mine a few months early.

Pre-ordered. Hopefully I will forget and the shipping email will be a nice surprise. Love that Omega Supreme but not keen on Optimus.

Same price as BBTS, whats the point ? With Amazon my card gets charged on the spot. At least with BBTS, I can pay when it arrives instead of tying up money on a pre-order...

That's odd - I've never had Amazon charge a card on the spot unless the item is in stock and ready to ship. In most US states it's actually not legal to do so.

Buying both from BBTS still saves $5 and since Amazon charges me tax, it's cheaper even with basic shipping to get it from BBTS. Shipping it with other items decreases the costss; even as an Amazon Prime member.

So yeah, I'll keep my pre-order.

Does anyone know the actual shipping dates from BBTS, RK and amazon? I can't decide where to order from. Amazon is the cheapest with it's free shipping but BBTS and RK both say they ship in January instead of April.

Also, is anyone ordering from the UK? I can either get it sent to my sister in California and pick it up in April or get it sent to me in the UK and pay more for postage and customs. I hate customs!

And once again the paint scheme is completely underwhelming. Ketchup, mustard, and grey. Whoopee.

Can't wait to see some customizers get their hands on this and do it justice.

only $100 with free 2 day shipping?! (Prime member...why arent you?) Yes please!

Sorry BBTS, even if this arrives in April which is doubtful, Im ok with waiting a bit. Getting older means I dont go crazy so much over NEEDING things ASAP when they come out.

Here's looking at you getting Fort Max 3 weeks faster through BBTS for $50 more... :lol:

Sure, but I am not talking about in comparison to the original, I am talking about in comparison to the promo shots, which looked much more metallic and had more of a dark silver, gold, and crimson tone.

Well, we'll have to differ then.

I'd RATHER have one that has the same colors as the original.

And haven't you learned by now that Hasbro and Takara always photoshop their promo images?

This is next on my list. Used up this months funds for the City Commander set from TF Source. Hopefully they'll still have these available in April.

The great retooling on this Omega makes it a justifiable purchase despite my already having the original and Sentinel Energon versions. If it had just been a straight repaint it would have been an easy pass.

Seems like a waste of money to me. As I said,
http://www.quickmeme.com/meme/3tctt5/

I was totally unprepared for how huge this guy is! (I'd never seen this mold in person before.)

The new paint job is sweet, and so is the new head. The claw is cool, but I kind of wish it had some sort of gimmick to make it retract or open and close.

Got him yesterday. Box is absoloutely amazing!

Omega himself ... errr ... head seems a little small. But I haven't had much of a chance to check him out so he may have other redeeming features.

Oh and triKlops, we only allow one image per sig unless the image is from, and hosted by seibertron.com. :wink:

I have Platinum Edition Omega Supreme, and I really love the mold. I'm really eyeballing Omega Sentinel & I really love his deco. Is he worth the large chunk of $ required? Thanks for any input.
