    If any Radicon or 3rd Party company is listening, could you please please please make something for Omega Supreme legs? This is what I was thinking.

    - Connection points the same on the tank threads
    - Now it would connect into a rotating plate to give 360 degree hip articulation.
    - The plate would be connected to hips that have ratcheting joints for both the top part of the hip and at the knee.
    - A portion would stick out slightly (matching the threads of the original figure) from the knee that would connect to the existing legs to match the ports on the legs.

    This would give him appropriate waist, hip and knee articulation. This with his existing arm articulation would be more then enough to make this figure amazing. It would make poses like this possible:

    What do you guys think?

    I like it, I just don't have the figure. However, you yourself could design something and print it shapeways. Could be worth looking into.

    I think it may be too big for shapeways. Plus I have 0 CAD knowledge. Not even sure where to start.

    If this was actually made, I would definitely consider grabbing am Omega Supreme. I had one as a kid so I've been trying to convince myself to drop the coin for it. An articulated, more posable update would put me over the edge.

    I couldent do it if I had an OG Omega Supreme.

    The walking feature was one of my favorite things TFs did back then. I have no idea how many times trypticon and Omega supreme walked towards each other while my battles were raging.

    You need to drop coin on it asap. I never owned him as a kid. But I have to say, that is one awesome figure. I instantaneously loved it as soon as I started unwrapping it.

    The articulated feet would just put it over the top.

    In the one I have the electronics are not working. I haven't looked it over to find out why not, but I think I may tinker with it since I am pretty good with Electrical wiring and all. So I hope to have it fixed.

    But the way I look it, this will be an add on. You want him to walk, take the add on off. You want him to be articulated, then put the add on back on.

    Or maybe they can make this as a two piece item. First piece is the Hip with 360 rotation. The second would be the thighs and knees. The major difference is either the Hips or the things/kness can connect to the tank threads. This way if you leave off the Hip, then he can still walk.

    Come to think of it, it maybe able to walk anyway with the hip add on as well.

    For what you want you would be better off just having a 3rd party group make Classic Omega Supreme. And seeing as everyone is jumping on combiners and starting to make Leader Class figures I do not think Omega Supreme is too far behind.

    Well this is really not much more then what crazy devy did with devastators thighs. This just adds rachetting joints and the 360 swivel.

    A new omega would be like 200 or so.

    Did anybody ever get on this?

    Sorry to be tardy to the party- I'm Brian and I just got a G1 Omega Supreme. (He's a bit dingy, but all in all he's pretty spiff for 33.)

    I've scoped out the Crazydevy upgrades and they seem ok, but I was immediately like "yeah, dude needs knees." Has anyone made Omega some knees? Someone should do that. He's getting a little old, so stiffness is normal at his age... But not this stiff. He's not dead, he's just chillin'.

    Download Fusion 360. It's free. Buy a digital micrometer for measuring your figure, they're $20ish. Then watch this great tutorial that covers the basics in Fusion. It's easy to get into.

    Shapeways does have physical constrictions depending on the material, so you'll need to design parts around those. You can find that here.

    I'd help design but I sold my OS ages ago. I miss him, but I don't really collect Autobots.
