    I suppose they want to be careful about their pricing, Hasbro OS might not be far from being revealled and we know what the prices are for titan class. 130 is good i guess, but if it creeps up... Their is shipping but some vendors will offer free shipping. Then in the UK you could be taxed on a box that big especially will not slip through customs easily.

    "The price will surprise you" :lol

    It's actually about $110 or 90 euro, so I guess it would be offered for 150 euro or less including shipping outside of China. As of now I can buy DX9 Omega for about 250 euro, FT for about 300 and anche hypotethical Hasbro version will be between 150 and 200, so this Omega could be the cheapest option by quite a bit. It remains to be seen if the engineering and build quality is good, but the previous Weijiang figures give me hope.

    150 euros for an official as an initial price with the high prospect of it being discounted depending on your variety of retailers.

    It occurs to me, this is not a KO, so might not US retailers like BBTS or TFSource consider carrying it? If so, shipping would not be as much of a consideration in final price.

    Some height comparisons...

    Fanstoys Terminus Giganticus vs CW Devastator

    CW Devastator vs Wei Jiang Lubo

    Looks like WJ Omega is at least the same height as FT Omega.

    This thing is a solid 2" taller than Terminus. Holy crap.
    Even if I love the price, I may have to go Gabriel (no harm there) just due to display space!

    Definitely getting this.
    If anything, the HasTak version (if and when released) would generally be hollow and in need of numerous upgrades anyway.
    So you're going to have to spend more for the official product to fix the unfortunate but expected issues and short cuts taken.
    Whereas with this, based on Weijiang's track record, you get a cheaper price plus better quality with minimal fixes required.
    It's tailored to the adult collector anyway.
    Common sense really (IMHO).

    It looks a little taller but I don't think it's 2" taller. Maybe 2cm.
    If you look at the CW Devastator and WJ Lubo photo, Lubo's left shoulder (red shoulder), is definitely taller than CW Devy's head.
    And if you look at where CW Devy's head lines up against FT Terminus and compare it with where WJ Lubo's red shoulder lines up against WJ Ultima Guard, Ultima Guard seems slightly taller than Terminus. And there's also the fact that in the CW Devy and FT Terminus photo, Devy's legs are spread and bent slightly on the knees so he should've stood taller next to Terminus.
    But this is all speculation until we see the actual Ultima Guard product. I'm suspecting he will be as tall as Fortress Max. I measured my Fort Max at 23 1/4" to the top of the horn/antenna.
    And Terminus was measured to be 22 1/2" in this video

    Put my deposit @ tf-direct.com for this thing. Crossing my fingers that they don't have any major delays.

    I
    Actually WJ looks as tall as FT if not a smidge taller. Again look at where Devy's head lines up with FT and where Lubo's shoulder (which is taller than Devy's head) lines with WJ.

    FTGiganticusvsCWDevy.jpg

    But until we have both of them side by side, this is all rough approximations.
    Ultima Guard is probably not going to be 60cm as advertised since most of them fall short to advertised height. Maybe a cm short which is around Fort Max height.

    Made these two comparisons, i don't particularly care but just for curiosity, they aren't perfect as the ft is taken on a wider lens not straight etc. Why i made two graphics.

    Well thing is damn big/tall no disputing that. I still think the ft is taller just and also more mass easily, i think this comparison is being kinder to the weijang.
    Anyway time will tell - proper comparison. :thumb

    In the end all of this Omega are probably within one inch in height, so for me it's not a deciding factor. Dx9 won the first round and from the pictures it doesn't seem that Weijiang could top it quality wise but their Omega needs only to be good enough given the huge price advantage.
