    lol always wanted an omega sentinel, to me it is the most beautifully painted transformer toy ever released, the color scheme is fabulous. He has always been out of my price range. So i found this lot and i just had to have it. and i won!

    it appears he is only missing his missles! he even has his head! and never had king atlas, so that will be fun

    don't know what i am gonna do with a 3rd cybertron metroplex haha it was $31 for the longest time but right at the end everyone was jumping on it, luckily time ran out before it went over $59 (had an $80 max bid)

    Lot of 6 Transformers - eBay (item 230531585794 end time Sep-30-10 20:05:51 PDT)

    can his head be attached without the back panels, that is the one thing that has me scared, cause a lot of that mold is found missing those....it gonna suck if they are, gonna have to track them down or something

    When you say panels, do you mean the top panel that his head sit's on?
    If so, it's impossible to combine him without that as the head attaches to that and also gives the overall figure more structural integrity.

    Sweet. Yes, the back panels have NOTHING to do with the head

    Congrats. I picked up a complete but opened Omega Supreme at Botcon this year. I know I don't regret my purchase, and I hope you don't either since you got ALL that for less than what I got my one Omega. :lol

    Congrats on your score :)  Omegas are certainly one of the gems of Energon figures. I have both on my Classics-Generations shelves :) 

    Well, I'd say that they do help keep the panel the head is on stay in place.

    Omega Sentinel was one of the last AEC guys I got. I passed on him in the stores because a) I had just bought Omega Supreme and they were both $50, and b) it was Christmastime. Fortunately, I got a loose complete one at Botcon 2007 for $35.

    wow you got a amazing deal for 6 figures.

    I think the seller thought cybertron metroplex's huge weapon was the 6th figure.

    I won an unopened Energon Sentinel off eBay last year for $5. The only problem with it was that the little headmaster is missing his legs, which don't impact him in head mode at all.

    He's one of my favorite TFs!

    Nice! Omega Sentinel and Ultra Magnus are the only two from Energon that I am missing, I believe. I have both the US and Japan versions of Omega Supreme, and both the orange and black versions of Unicron. While I opened most of them, I have about 30% of my Energon stuff still sealed, been opening them slowly, very slowly! I am out of space so the boxes all need to go. Although I might keep the Japan Omega Supreme in his box since he displays so nicely that way.

    And here I thought people hated this mold - I know it certainly isn't one of my favorites.
