    Hello again. I've already got the fabulous Encore reissue of Omega Supreme, but when I start collecting the E-hobby/repaints of G1 figures, I wonder if the blue Omega Supreme (Guardian) is just as good quality as the Encore? I assume they are virtually identical just different color? Worth adding to the collection? Yea or neh?

    Also, what about the red Diaclone version? That one look's pretty sweet as well. Or is that overdoing it?

    Best one of the bunch if you ask me. :) 

    I'm still looking for the chromed KO version that comes around once in a while.

    I really love this mold...
    And troop building is totally justified as Cybertronian City Guardians :)

    Have to agree, wish I could have afforded to troop build them when they were under $120 on BBTS, but it is a great colorscheme for the mold. Great figure.

    Ooo, cheaper than DigitalToys. Their asking closer to $200! Hope their still available by the time I'm ready for one.
    That gray/red one look's killer! I'd love to see a picture of all three together. :)

    Definitely worth it, even though it's pricey. The colors are really nice and it looks better to me, color-wise, than Omega Supreme.

    I thought about getting another cheaper Encore version to do a custom colored "KING" version. Thinking of all black with gold-plated parts. :) 
    I really like the blue one though as it was shown in the cartoons as guardians.

    It's BETTER looking than Omega Supreme. I can't recommend him highly enough!
