    I have a vintage omega, and have always thought he was cool, but when the energon versions came out I was a little disinfranchised with the TFS especially energon, so I passed it up. I have been going back and buying what I have missed from superlink/galaxy force series, but omega is pretty pricey, and I just wanted to hear some fellow TWFer's opinions on him before I throw down the cash for him. Thanks in advance.

    I think he's good... but a bit meh. I can tell you to NOT get him for the Optimus combo, since it sucks.

    It's the most awesomest of awesome figures!

    Seriously though, E. Omega is a decent figure, very simple transformation, but the head master is nice. As for the combo mode, Omega is basically a shell to go around E. Prime, but if you add Starsaber to him as well, I think it makes him look a lot better.

    Personally I would keep an eye out for junker lots that have either one half or both and try to piece it together that way, esp given the price he seems to go for online.

    He's an elongated brick, pretty much. Mine sits in a bin.

    IIRC, with a bit of patience(~3 weeks watching auctions), mine was about $20 on Ebay.

    I like him. The battleship is awesome. The construction half is ....meh. The robot is nice. My wife paid $100. Not worth that much but....she loves me. I wouldn't pay more than $40ish.

    Well, you can make it awesome by commissioning frenzy_rumble to paint it G1 style.

    He's pretty cool. He's fun/easy to play with and also makes a good display piece thanks to his ridiculous size.

    However, his transformation is really really simple.

    Oh, and ignore those hating on the Optimus combo. It's awesome. Omega's body essentially becomes a huge powered armor suit for Prime. It's true that Prime's trailer hitch area sticks out of the back, but there's a 5mm hole there, which basically makes it a great weapons platform so Prime can defend himself from 6 o'clock attacks...you can also plug on Optimus' drones/limbs, some in more useful places than others.

    It looks cool in bot mode but sentinel looks better.Yeah,pretty much just an over sized pretender shell with a head master gimick.The alt mode sucks imo and the transformation is too basic.I sold both of mine and kinda wish I still had them but with the price now I'd just say pass unless you can get a loose one for around $40.00 or less.

    It is a decent figure. In vehicle mode I prefer the Battleship half over the construction half and hate the "Omega Train" combined vehicle mode. He's cool as a robot but crummy combined with E. Prime. The Omega Sentinel color scheme is way better than the Supreme version. As stated many times above, try to get it on discount.

    I like Omega Sentinel. Not a favorite, pride of my collection piece, but he's neat, I recently brought him out of storage to put on display and toy around with. His Battleship mode is a lot of fun, and I actually put the batteries back in and played around with the lights and sounds.

    He is huge though.
