    According to an article in Hyper Hobby magazine, Encore Omega Supreme is to have something different from the original. The article uses the expression "power-up", but it can mean anything from different paint applications to extra thick catalogue.

    What do you think/hope it will be?

    Sorry if this is covered already in elsewhere.

    Omega face FTW, also maybe sound effects. But looking at Encore so far, I'd guess it's just more paint apps.

    Since Sky Lynx, Jazz and Bumblebee all have gotten new head molds and Ironhide and Ratchet got cardboard heads I'm guessing Omega will get a new head.

    Could be tampoed stickers. A face would be really awesome, though.

    Agreed. A sticker face in tank mode would suck.

    What's different about Sky Lynx's head mode other than the tongue?

    Could they have fixed that cam problem? You know, those cheap, flimsy, plastic cams that kept breaking if he walks around long enough or if you transform him a little too hard.

    Agreed. I've heard this problem a hell of a lot of times; maybe they'll wise up and make them out of metal...?

    I don't know about metal. Those are moving parts that would be grinding/rubbing/abrading away on the plastic treads. This was brought up before in the following thread where someone was making repro cams out of stainless steel.

    http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/showthread.php?t=111473&highlight=metal

    I could see them changing the design to something more robust that will allow them to thicken up the plastic walls and using a more robust plastic, but metal wouldn't seem to be advisable.
