    If they will redeco this retool and make a nice guardian version somewhere down the line that would be one big and expensive armybuilder!

    ... and I would buy 3 or 4 of them probably.

    Sounds like I remain the only person excited by Prime and with little interest in Omega.

    I wonder if that will mean a cheap Prime in my future.

    It's not an ideal Classics Omega but it will do the trick especially with the new head. I'm looking forward to it. I'm really surprised that we haven't seen any new pics of this...I'm wondering how extensively the head was remolded, I'd assume it needed to be removed for the alt mode but I wonder if it will still be integrated into the battleship half like the original Energon Omega.

    Right? It's not even that difficult, basically a new headsculpt, and some recoloring, and voila! Dai Atlas!

    Really hope the Platinum line looks into doing these sort of retools/repaints.

    I can say this, the Hasbro guys did a really good job explaining the packaging at TFCon. I can't wait for OS to hit Amazon (i'm hoping they are less expensive than BBTS).

    The artwork is pretty lame for Omega Supreme since all they did was recolor the original energon art.

    They could have at the very least redrew is claw arm and head. :/

    Now if only Fattimus Prime even looked remotely as good as he does in his box art...

    Omega will be very sweet to have... IIRC, he's just a head taller than Hercules too... so they will display quite well together.

    I really would like to see anything that is placing itself as a premium deco to have a properly painted faction logo and Painted wheel hubs personally.

    And they've not even retained the Drone Number either "Sigh" That said I do like the deco - it's just a bit depressing that if you want a premium item to look it's best you have to paint it yourself - especially when it will likely cost more than double the original price.

    I'd rather they lost the electronics (if it has them) and painted it better and included some chrome like the Superlink version has.

    I wished they didn't remold omega supreme, sure the new remolds are g1 accurate, but I just love the energon design so much more

    Optimus in combined form looks pretty great.
