    That thing got a interesting bot mode, but judging from the WFC pics, alt mode will be a big turn off for me...

    Why are his arms longer than his legs? I will have to pass. Hopefully this will inspire someone else to go with a more G1 Omega and with better proportions than this.

    Knowing a little about the production costs of third party toys, I'd love to see a business plan and cost breakdown for how they expect this to make money.

    If I was going to invest in this I'd rather it was a company and a designer I knew. What have these guys done before?

    MASSIVE kudos if they pull it off, and I hope they do. And respect due just for attempting it.

    FP had to start somewhere too right?

    I guess with new groups the difference is in the pre orders. I, and I assume the majority, will wait for reviews before jumping on an item from someone new. But at the end of the day, if the item is good it will sell out.

    I will say this though, this is one ballsy group starting with a 2' figure. I hope they found a way to make it good and for a reasonable price.

    ...wow. So I started playing WFC for the second time two days ago with a friend. We got to omega supreme last night and I thought to myself "I really wish I had an wfc omega supreme"...I wake up and check this site to see this...I may have super powers. Time to test them. ::starts to concentrate on FOC metroplex::

    May you throw a wish my way? I want to bed three busty (disease free) sexy ladies this weekend.

    Thanx :D 



    If not, I will settle for a TF Animated Omega Supreme that is that size. (That is $200 or less :D  )

    Ya but the Hulk hates everything so you don't count. ;) 



    Has anyone done the math yet? If that OS is in scale with that FoC Prime, how tall does that make WfC OS?
    If I had to venture a guess I would say a min of 14" and a max of 18".

    I'm guessing they'd call FoC Metroplex Project Exodus or something.

    Sure, but they started from a Cliffjumper add-on, not from a supreme-sized full figure.

    so there's yet another third-party company making this? It's not a pre-existing one?

    Meh. WFC Omega was a good fit for WFC but not for my collection.

    G1 Omega remains the best.

    This is what worries me too. I'm not familiar with this company so I'm naturally cautious.

    So Planet X is the name of the group?

    noticed similarities with Ra88's custom, but mostly noticed differences (feet, shoulders, wings etc...)
