Ok, he looks good.

I've never owned an Omega Supreme. Will this be available on Amazon UK?
Or should I get it via BBTS?

this is pretty good and am tempted but i'm not sure about having an armada trilogy figure repurposed for my g1 centric collection (ok.. unicron was a must)

my real question is.. is that OP giving Omega S a prostate exam?

Omega is one big, fat, honking pile of WANT.

My sentiment is similar - I purged my collection of Armada trilogy molds long ago (except for Amazon/Welcome-to-2010 Unicron remold).

I was never a fan of the series, and the molds don't really have the G1/classics aesthetic I look for, but DAMN - this Omega redeco looks great.

Unfortunately, I already have too many Masterpieces/Fansproject Bruticus/Terminus Hexatron/3rd Party Add-Ons on preorder to justify the new expense.

:grin:

:BOWDOWN: Sold!!! I'm so glad that I parted ways with this mold not that long ago because I wanted Omgea Sentinel with his really cool paint apps. Now the circle is complete for me as I will have this Neo-Omega Supreme as he was meant to look.

I thought as a gag, it would be funny if Omega's alt mode was a giant crane game for Voyager :BOT: to play and try to catch legends :CON: ...just a funny thought. :P :VEHI:

I am incredibly happy to say that the head looks so much better than I initially thought. I still hold that they remolded the wrong arm though. I kinda wish that visor was orange instead of yellow as well. Otherwise he's pretty nice looking. Although the price tag is pretty ridiculous considering Unicron and Omega share the same size class. Unicron was $60ish with free shipping.
:BOT:

I must admit, this looks pretty nice! The box art is great too! I may have to get this after all.

I predict an orange, third party visor somewhere in the not-too-distant future... or at least I hope we'll see one.

I like the new head because it looks more G1 and it's more inscale with super mode Prime's head

nice!! now I need to know when Amazon is going to have this... cause they'll prob sell it for $60 like they did with the Unicron.

I want to like this, but I don't. :(

It is just a reminder we won't be getting a true update to Omega Supreme from Hasbro any time soon.
Re: In-Hand Images: Platinum Edition Year of the Snake Omega Supreme (1452404)

New head, claw, and color scheme FTW :x

I wasn't impressed with the Armada version but this update really makes it shine.

I wonder if the head is still removable. (wasn't it removable when it was an Armada fig?)

^ It was, a huge 'minicon'.

This toy looks impressive. However, it's too expensive and too huge to fit in my collection. Pretty sure it's a lot taller than Unicron, isn't it?

DAYUM! This thing look amazing! I was not a fan of the original, but this one is just PERFECT.

Still, the price is a little too high for me. I'll have to wait and see.

For some reason I'm thinking I would have liked it more if the gold was yellow instead, still nice though. :MAXIMAL:

Looks good, I'd like to see it size wise next to another bot or two for comparison.

I thought about canceling my preorder but after seeing these pics eff that. Another c-note gone to collecting. My wife is going to kill me. I hope this guy doesn't ship the same week as Mp Soundwave. Shockwave or I mean Shock Quake, is coming soon too. Good start for 2013. :BANG_HEAD:

Gimme! Gimme NAO! :BOWDOWN:

Despite owning the original Energon version, that Omega Supreme is just full of badassery! It pisses me off that he isn't available at regular retail under the Generations banner. :-(

He's going on my Classics shelf next to TFC's version of Devastator. :D

Year of the Dragon Optimus Prime came to Canadian TRUs...maybe the same will happen again? Doesn't help anyone in the US though.

I love him, glad I pre-ordered. My only complaint is why did they have to paint the right leg red ? A grey train wouldnt have looked bad and kept the G1 theme in robot mode. >:oP

On the box art:

Im not usually one to give a crap about box art, but when I saw Omega having a boner, I was cracking up !!! Year of the Snake !!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Any comparision photos of this mold next to classics figures for scale ?

I am very excited about this guy. I'm glad I preordered him. He is going to look great towering over my Classics shelf.

Crap crap crap!!
Now I've got to order this. And I already have the Energon version. :BANG_HEAD:
I hope Amazon has it cheaper than BBTS.

Really cool! But to buy both must be really expensive too..

Fingers crossed for a possible clearance sale on BBTS. I can't Amazon'd.
