Hasbro Pulse on YouTube has released a video showing off HasLab Omega Prime completely hand painted today. It should be mentioned that this is purely representative of the final figure which will be molded in colored plastic with painted details and not fully painted. The video also shows off some of the features that were skipped or glossed over in the initial reveal like the storage for Blue Bolts in Ultra Magnus, his compatibility with carrying Deluxe cars and Prime's extending ladder. The video also features several comparisons to the original figure.

The Omega Prime set campaign runs until March 14 at 11:59 EDT for $249.99. As for this writing it's only about 1,200 units away from reaching the second tier with 23 days remaining. As of yet a bonus 3rd tier has not been mentioned, but they did surprise us with one at the end of the Deathsaurus campaign so anything is possible, just not promised.

The wheels still look pretty bad, especially on ultra magnus truck mode and his fake windows on the cab are eeew.
Too many raised parts to have autobot symbols on magnus truck sides and primes symbols look dissapointingly small. But some bonus points for prime being titan master compatible in truck mode.

My issue with the tires is that the hubs are too big for the tires, they should be a little beefier.

The Autobot symbols are a compromise, the cartoon and original Japanese toy didn't have them on either character, Hasbro put huge ones on theirs so this figure is meeting us half way and giving us smaller ones for just Prime since UM has one on his bumper.

I'm not sure why they felt the need to over detail certain parts, they're not accurate to the show or the original toy. Makes me wonder if there's some extra detailed concept art out there from early in production.

Prime looked alright to me. Didn't like the sloped chest, especially when he was next to the original.

Magnus... just looks worse. The originals legs were bad, these look wrong sideways. And the neck, looks like he has tiny head. Just doesn't look right.

I wanted to hope they'd be better. Enough to justify the amount. Not for me.

These guys look great, all minor gripes aside. I don’t think it’s any accident though, that they’re using that Shadow Striker mold who resembles a certain Autobot Brother…

I'm glad they made this video cause the details from the haslab page just didn't feel as informative as the Victory Saber or Deathsaurus projects. That being said, I still don't feel that it's quite worth the $250 price. I have the original (which I love) and I would like an updated version, but I don't know why this project is $70 more that the last two projects. Omega Prime feels like it has a lot in common with Victory (1 bot that combines with the trailer to form a leader class bot, then combines with a second bot to get even bigger). Granted Magnus is bigger than Victory Leo so I can understand a slight price hike, but i just can't get behind $250 for this guy. The cynic in me thinks that Hasbro's financial woes might be pushing them to get more out of the few successful brands they have and seeing how much they can milk they hardcore fans for these projects.

This is the fastest a Transformers HasLab has ever reached its final bonus tier. Victory Saber and Deathsaurus both took all the way up to the end of their funding windows to unlock theirs, but Omega Prime reached his with 15 days (over two weeks) left to go.

Wait...does this mean there may actually be some interest in Non-G1 Transformers? I didn't think that was possible! What's wrong with these people? (dripping with sarcasm)

As anyone here knows, I legit loved Car Robots when it first came out in 2000 (before I even knew it would be translated as RiD in 2001).

I'm all for new ideas; absolutely 100% keep the brand fresh, keep a new generation interested. At the same time, as an older fan, I appreciate the appreciation we do get in the Generations line etc.

With that said, every time I ask for an animated series that is an honest-to-goodness continuation of the original animated series (whether set after rebirth, or in the 20 years between S2 and TF:TM, or even something before)...

The usual response is "G1 has been done to dEaTHHHH: Sighting Car Robots/Rid, Cyberverse, & Earthspark (among others) as mere G1 Reduxs. Now while I don't agree , nor do I enjoy the latter series as much as CR/Rid, I ask the fandom which is it?... cant be both.

Are these series original, or are they just G1 clones?

In conclusion though, I am very happy this Haslab has been successful, whatever the reasons. The original JRX (Railracer) and Build King/Landfill are still pretty solid, but if new versions were to be made, Haslab or standard Generations release, Id be all over them.

Probably has a lot to do with being an Optimus Prime figure and a good one at that.

If you need a visual on how unprecedented Omega Prime's funding is, here's a chart that Geek.Dad.Life posts.

It makes sense, there are a lot of fans who didn't grow up with G1, like myself, and are more attached to other series that don't get as much love. I like and respect G1, but I get way more excited when the Transformers series that I grew up with get some attention.

For fans who are attached to RiD/CR, or fans who just want something unique, getting a major release like this has to be very exciting.

Right away the live stream announced the white gun barrels/missiles will be included with Bluebolts. Apparently they didn't think there was anywhere in the mold to include them, but found space with the thigh molds.

You missed nothing. Most of the stream was for partner products like Three Zero, FigPins, shirts, just random stuff. Only figure "reveals" were things already up for pre-order (Amazon and Target exclusives).

Okay, you're right. In my defense I am really old and can't remember the last time I had my RiD Prime out of storage. I also can't remember much else. I went into the bathroom today and forgot why I was there...

As for the Haslab. 20K is impressive for sure. Admittedly I haven't followed as closely other Haslabs that fulfilled all their tiers so early (GI Joe Classified HISS & Both Ghostbusters Haslabs), so I'm not sure if this will have the same last day spike that others have when the tiers were on the line.

Needs to surpass 27,442 to be the highest backed TF Haslab (Deathsaurus)
Needs to surpass 30,811 to be the highest backed Haslab overall (Marvel Legends Galactus)

The question is: will FOMO cause it to get 5K more in the last 13 hours ? :-?

I personally am staying strong and passing. Its a great toy, and Car Robots is one of my favorite series. I just don't have a place for this in my collection. But I am certainly more than happy for its success, and for all those getting it.

I think I'll pass this time too. It's a bit too $$$ for a guy who I really have no attachment to. I mean, I've had the costco one for ages and I don't appreciate it like I should. The awsomeness makes it really tempting, but there are other figs that I also want that would mean more to me. I'm not even collecting all the modern-takes on leaders that they've been doing. Gotta draw a line for myself.

I am happy for the backers, tho. It does look amazing.

Just backed it, but a tad disappointed that no extra stretch goals popped up like with Deathsaurus.

Maybe they'll just announce some random s#!t after the fact? Snap-on plastic replacement tires for the original Fire Convoy and God Magnus's cracked rubber ones? That Artemis minifig that was supposed to come with MP Lioconvoy? Or slightly more possible, a slew of blast-effects, some of which represent squirting water or the Blizzard-Storm?

Maybe Blue Bolts getting a robot mode was deemed stretchy-enough? That's part of what sold me, since its name and complexity had been begging for an actual personality and bot mode for over 2 decades.

If they're planning an extra bonus then we've probably already hit that threshold. The team seemed genuinely excited in today's livestream that it had surpassed their expectations at 20K. They're currently nearing 24K.

It's just smart to add a extra bonus after it ends.

It just makes sense from a marketing standpoint.

That way people in the future would speculate on the hidden stretch goal on all future haslabs.

A stretch goal you already know of and don't really care for adds little to motivate, but a mystery goal could be anything, even a thing that you didn't know you needed.

The bonus is just that, a bonus, a way of saying thanks for making the campaign such a success. It isn't meant to be an incentive. And that's assuming there even is one. They did announce the extra missiles last week so that may be all we see.

By about 800....sure.

An impressive support this time around to be certain. But honestly. I think it backed faster, not so much because it was wildly more popular than the last 2 TF Haslabs, but because Hasbro's ability to count backers, And their own Pulse website has more availability in more countries than with the previous 2 campaigns. In the end, I'm guessing there is a large percentage of fans and retailers that have gone all in on the past 3 based on the numbers being relatively close.

Still I would not be surprised if sometime very soon a congratulatory note of some sort came out announcing a"Thank you" bonus if some type.

It did also just pass the Razorcrest by 100 to be the 2nd highest supported Haslab of all ( still not quite 30K plus Galactus levels but impressive nonetheless).

Robots in Disguise did sow the seed for a Transformers revival, plus Optimus Prime hasn't combined (Brave-style) like that before. It also aired during a period in which anime slowly became big business.

As a toyline, Robots in Disguise did much better than Car Robots if the non-show redecos (that would lead into Universe 2003) is any indication.

I wouldn't downplay it that much. I feel like it gave a Transformers-hungry populace something different before we were introduced to the Unicron Trilogy. It was fuel to keep the fire going, not neccessarily a spark to reignite it. By the time the Beast Ear ended, the interest was clearly starting to spike.

Don't get me wrong. I thought Car Robots (not the RiD dub) was great. I would have preferred season two over UT, in hindsight. But you can count it's original characters/figures with fingers and not run out. Even said cast thematically transitions from Beasts to Vehicles. Passing that baton backwards. It isn't a highly acclaimed masterpiece whose legacy and impact is fondly remembered. Outside of outlier weirdos like me.
