    This is my version of the standard Energon/Classics Omega Supreme custom. The head, chest plate, lower arms (insides and rocket halves), and the tank treads came from a G1 Omega. It's the first large figure I've painted or customized.

    The base design is a mix of various elements. I wanted a G1 rocket, and to make a base out of the rest, taking elements from Uuser's and others. What I loved about Uuser's base mode was that the claw arm was a giant radar dish/satellite and that he used the construction cockpit in conjunction with Unicron parts to form a control room. The radar/satellite concept was perfect for Omega, as he is a space craft and a launch base.

    In my version, I have the control room on one side of the U-shape, in the middle, the construction arm is used as the tower for a satellite dish (good use for the 'construction beam/rigging' aesthetic), and the remaining side is a launch pad / defense area. Wanting to still have a good sized G1-ish tank, I used parts from the G1 and energon figures to make the vehicle mode's tank / the robot mode's backpack.

    Other changes: Aside from the G1 parts, I made a satellite setup on the right shoulder, continuing the base's focus. I took the three armed construction tool from the Energon figure and attached cannon parts to the tips of each one (perfect fit - movement retained). The unicron parts connect via balljoints. The head pops off and attaches to the tank to be a turret.

    About a month ago, I posted a WIP of an Omega Supreme kitbash. I took some of the criticisms to heart and ditched the launch tower, in addition to changing the cannon on Omega's head from a trimmed G1 to a barrel from Cybertron Soundwave's tri-blaster.

    Looks really great. Nice alt mode, but the robot mode is where it shines.

    Thanks for the complements everyone!

    Especially to Thyvipera. Your stuff and that of a few others are what inspired me to start getting into this.

    I have a few comparison shots and such that haven't been uploaded yet - as I've been buried in my new project (a Typticon).
