    I would go for the original, to be honest. I don't really like the face on the Encore one.

    I think I saw in a review that the face is removable.

    The face is removable. I would go for the encore version. You get a fresh omega supreme with working electronics.

    Heck, no. As far as I understand it, you just open the canopy part of the turret and it lifts right out. I think the turret opens anyway, as it would have been designed to hold figures originally.

    The E Hobby blue Omega Supreme is sweet looking. But crazy expensive.

    I've always wanted some sort of Omega Supreme in my collection, but the G1 partsformer left me cold. I'd save my money for the Animated toy instead. It's a dead ringer for the original character anyway.

    Definitely!! I have the it and it's totally awesome!! His face looks as good as the g1 as well and has a really nice accurate Transformation. Out of 5 for rating i would give it a 7/5!!

    I have an original in nice working shape, otherwise, I'd be all over the Encore one. Omega is a great toy, and a must have for me.

    Ditto. If it wasn't for the fact I already have one, I would've been one to preorder it.
