    Hi - Here is a big update from http://www.bigbadtoystore.com about a
    fantastic new batch of preorders and more new arrivals, including the
    MP-05 Megatron!

    --------------
    NEW PREORDERS:
    --------------

    TRANSFORMERS ENCORE #10 - OMEGA SUPREME: Takara keeps things interesting
    with yet another Transformer that has never before been reissued. Omega
    Supreme is scheduled to arrive in June and preorders have been listed at
    just $114.99. This is a great chance to own a mint & complete example of
    what is one of the harder figures to find in pristine & functional
    condition. We can't wait to see what else is coming this fall!

    TRANSFORMERS ENCORE #09 - MINIBOTS: The Minibots were originally reissued
    as the twelve set in the Transformers Collection reissue series. They sold
    out quickly and are now extremely hard to find and quite expensive. This
    is your chance to get them all again for only $34.99. The set includes:
    Bumblebee, Huffer, Warpath, Cosmos, and Powerglide.

    different all new figures including: Cobra Viper, Wild Bill, Major Bludd,
    Duke with Jetpack, HISS Driver, Spirit Iron-Knife and Snake-Eyes V4. We

    Why would you wanna drop $120 on Omega Supreme when you can find a complete origional G1 one on ebay for the same price? *shrugs* Personally I like knowing it's an origional toy and not a remake. But hey, to each his own. :)

    I would far rather have a minty remake then an old one. It isn't the antiquity I like, but more the toy and nostalgia it brings. Nostalgia comes either way. I am sure a vintage mint Omega would be far more then $120.

    Because even you find a minty one on ebay there's no guarantee what one person rates as a C9+ will be that way for you too. And for $120 you won't get an Omega MISB or even MIB (unless it's a taped up, shredded box).

    I have an original, in a pretty bad box. It's just a display item. I'm ordering the new one because 1. I want one to play with and 2. From what I've seen the packaging is excellent.

    Collect originals only if you want but the official reissues are very very close quality-wise to their original counterpart - it's hard to tell the difference sometimes. IMHO, you're missing out if you are a G1 collector and not picking up reissues.

    The new OS will probably have better quality electrics then the old one too, I can't imagine they're still using the exact same motors and stuff after all this time, lol.
