    @Cracka J - you wont regret it bro, i was supposed to skip prime but failed to resist after seeing him in hand. you could tell how shiny the box are if you check the 1st pic, theres a shiny reflection behind it lols.

    Anyone know the Amazon release date? It just says "Order now and we'll deliver when available".

    @archie - Yep i figure to post it in here haha, btw theres really something about your 1st pic with OS, the shadow effect and the stance especially in the face, its just so epic and badass looking in there compared to the 2nd pic. Best pic of OS ive seen so far,

    It sinks into the platform it's mounted on, and turns around so the cannon is facing forward.

    Great shots. YotS Omega is simply awesome. Only two things that bother me are the head being a bit small... and the excess red on the right leg. Otherwise, this retool makes a solid update for a G1 fave IMO.

    Fattimus... eh... still a subpar figure. The head looks like they retooled it to emphasize his combiner mode (face looks bigger)... which is probably a good thing. Would be curious to see this rendition paired up with Wing Saber though... given that's the only configuration that makes both molds shine.
