    I just can't get myself to like Hasbro's new attempt at Omega Supreme. It just doesn't feel like the character--the massive shoulder pads, the imposing bodybuilder-esque physique, the tiny head.

    The Genesis isn't G1 accurate either, but for me it captures a better sense of the character--the claw arm/gun arm combo, the tubbiness...just feels more right. Looking forward to more information on this guy.

    I just wish someone would throw up a preorder for this. RK was pimping the pics this morning. I just don't know what to even speculate the price is though...if it's to scale with FOC Prime, like the initial picture they gave us.

    I'd like to get Genesis, but not sure I'm willing to pay the price if it's that huge compared to FOC OP. I can live with the Hasbro one and think I'll be happier with their price.

    Does genesis even have a projected release date yet? Not seen much of him yet but he looks enormous from the silouette. I already have energon os which works ok with my classics lineup but genesis has the potential to be better.

    I don't have the Energon mold, and good thing because the retool looks so much nicer. I'd get this and the reissue as long as the 3rd party version doesn't look derpy and gangly

    Well, they just said that the picture with FOC Optimus is to scale. How tall is FOC Deluxe Optimus anyways?

    Wonder how much this guys going to cost and whether they're going to make more WFC/FOC characters or not. Personally, I hope they do, as Hasbro's attempt pretty much sucks:(

    If this guy is as big as they are eluding then it will carry a big price tag. As per the rules of 3P forums I will not even throw out a price.

    I see the Hasbro release of OS hurting sales minimally on this piece. First off, this is WFC Omega Supreme, he looks exactly like the game model, gimpy legs et al.

    The Hasbro release will only take away anyone who wanted this just to have an OS but the Hasbro release in no way goes up against this item for those who are looking to make a WFC/FOC display.

    I wish them the best and I hope the price is reasonable.

    This is all I'm really asking for.

    If the price is right and the quality is good. I just might bite, but if this is the only guy that's going to be around, I'll probably hold off. I don't have any of the WFC/FOC toys, as I think they're all pretty $#!+y. If Hasbro put as much effort into those toys as they did the Classics or the Prime line, I would have picked up quite a few characters and would have more of a need to pick up this Omega Supreme.

    When I saw that Hasbro was doing an Energon OS retool, I basically wrote this off, seeing how good that looked and knowing how much cheaper it would be.

    But the lights on this have got my attention again. Because it never really occurred to me that a 3rd party working with a big toy like this could work in LEDs all over the place and really capture the aesthetic of the games.

    That's a cute feature. But i could care less about lil led lights. It's not like i'm going to leave them on while it's sitting on my WFC/FOC shelf.
