    Energon Prime does look much better in red and blue G1 colors but in the end, it's still the Energon Prime mold and I dont really want another one of those. But now, Omega Supreme might be a different story. He really looks sharp in G1 colors and would look good with my other classics.

    I plan to nab the Optimus prime as I do not own an Energon prime and i love the colors on this I want the Omega Supreme as well but its a lower priority and will likely have to wait until after i get Fort max.

    Year of the Snake Prime looks almost respectable.

    Then you realize it's Fatimus Prime, the worst Optimus ever made, and the only reason he is being rereleased is so that Omega-Supreme-done-right here has addon components available.

    I'm really torn between Omega Supreme and Genesis, because Energon Omega, even in G1 colors with a new head and arm, is still kinda a stinker.

    I can't believe I'm saying this, but old Fatimus is looking pretty good in his new colors.

    That Optimus looks simply amazing. Good deco scheme and a nice head retool (plus no mouth). If this gets released at TRU I must have it.

    Aww... I thought they were going to use the Optimus without the faceplate. That's what they showed at NYCC

    Please no, it'd be like hunting down Omega Sentinels all over again.

    ...

    They could just reissue the Omega Sentinel, I guess.

    Who is this shared with? I thought Amazon but I don't remember and they don't have a preorder up.

    Anyone else scroll through all the Optimus Prime pictures, just to get to the Omega Supreme pictures and was disappointed not to see any? XD

    Omega Supreme is awesome! Pre-ordered a while ago, waiting patiently for the release date this month!

    The combination is REALLY lame. It's just Optimus in truck mode with the head up wearing an Omega Supreme suit.

    That said, both toys are insanely fun on their own. Neither are petty lately articulated but they're still fiddle fodder. For all the shit Energon Optimus gets its really is fun to play around with. I even have the one with the mouth and totally dig it.

    Yup, it even has most of the truck just hanging out there in the back. The combination is nothing to write home about.

    I would just get Omega Supreme here, Fatimus is still pretty bad even with new colors.
