    I think that is an Original pre-TF Omega Supreme. I don't think it's a KO. I've seen them before on Ebay over the years, so I'm pretty sure it's an authentic piece.

    Are you sure is not a bootleg? I saw what i was thinking an original pre-transformers and was without chrome parts and with white rail and not yellow...

    that's the pre-transformer Omega Supreme box (a very cool color btw) ... those chrome and blue parts is throwing me off though.

    How many different pre-transformers Omega Supreme figures are there?

    I have a Grandstand(?) Omegatron which predates the Transformers OS but it looks nothing like this one.

    I think the box is very similar to the oriiginal pre-Omega... inside the box are stamped the instructions... but look the Omega figured in the box and the toy... are different for chrome parts and yellow rail....

    I think, between the chrome and bad Engrish, it's a fake. Either that or a cheap licensed copy, much like Shackwave was a completely legit toy licensed from the mold's owners just like Shockwave was. Definately not a normal Mechabot from what I've seen.

    I have that one :)  It's actually REALLY good quality, and I'm not so sure it's a knockoff. Seems to have been more prevanalt in Italy for some reason. Both the blue/chrome & the black version come in identical boxes (I got both mine at the same time :)  ) I got mine for $50...but that was a LONG time ago and I see the black one on occasion, but the blue seems rarer...

    There are some great toy variations from Italy and I'm betting this is one of them (I'm more used to it with Micronauts....I still need the Italian grey Force Commander :)  )

    it's pre-tf, not realy a ko, not realy oficial. it was a side line that never got it's start for some toy company. a semi-rare/rare toy, i've only heard good about that version.

    Actually, it "IS" a KO from the pre-TF Mechabot-1, the original didnt had so much chrome, and well, you can tell from the Engrish used...

    I have this one! Very good quality, not at all KO-ish in its construction.

    HOWEVER!

    I believe it might be a really old off-brand version. My one, from way back in the day, had a persistant problem with some of the arm assembly being a bit off. Some parts, including the forward half of the rocket, weren't properly aligned, but were very easily fixed once I was old enough to figure it all out.

    Also, from wear or perhaps because it is a KO, the shoulders on mine went after a little while. I eventually fixed them (and how! This shows you that the plastic quality is decent as it survived all my tinkering and adjustments!).


    Overall, it cannot hold a candle up to an original, but it belongs in the small, elite group of "good KOs", those KOs that are as good as the originals and interesting pieces in their own right.
    I absolutely love mine, and would never part with it.

    Would be good if i could buy it for 130 usd shipped? Is a good price or not? Is MI(S)B (MISB because the internal insert tray is sealed with celophan..)

    I didn't study those pics...I never realized there were two versions, but I guess there is. I'd pay that price for it, sure. KO or not, it's surely rare not to mention its coolness :D
