    I've had RiD Prime's yellow repaint for quite a while now, today my Car Robots God Magnus arrived, I set them up side by side, they look great together, both Yellow Optimus Prime and God Magnus ( Overload and Guardshell in my Universe respectively) and then....then I COMBINED THEM!!! Holy smokes Omega Prime is HUGE!!!! This is the first time I've seen their combined form in person, he's so huge I'm completely blown away.



    Finally another grail of mine collected at long last.

    Now I just need one of those new god master swords for him to hold.

    Really??? You guys don't know what the omega prime combo looks like by now... No offence to you guysn but he's just expressing his love for his new found figures... Let him do so. Don't need pictures for that. Also, yes, omega prime is a huge comination, and he's a terrific one at that. I'm some what glad I never found any buyers for my rid collection. Nice addition to the collectio bro!

    I'll try to do so tomorrow after work, as for now I really need to get to bed but I find the prospect of this 3 day woot off so fascinating, plus I'm waiting to pounce on a gaming mouse, so tired, need mouse, work tomorrow, need sleep....or caffeine.



    damn my addictions, plastic crack and woot offs are going to be the death of me.

    Congrats! After watching 1 review of them, I knew I had to get them. And when I finally combined them...hoo boy. They have not separated since. Who knew such a great Prime could come from such a mediocre series?

    Well, yes I think everyone knows what Omega Prime looks like but I've never really seen up close photos of the Yellow version.

    I was dubious about how yellow Prime would look combined, but I concur, he looks great.

    One of the all-time greatest moments in Transformers engineering, right there. RiD Prime/Magnus and the Car Brothers are the reason I got sucked back into this hobby.

    I still need to find him, and the Magnus to go with him. :( 
    I agree completely. I still remember reading early reviews of Super Fire Convoy when he first came out in Japan and being really impressed. Then I got him and was totally blown away. Then I got God Magnus and was incredibly impressed. And then I combined them and was UTTERLY amazed. Brilliant figures, both of them. And God Fire Convoy is easily one of the most impressive Prime/Convoy toys ever made.

    Omega Prime is just all kinds of badass. I wish my Optimus/Magnus were in better shape. :(

    I know you're feeling man. I simply had to have RID/CR Prime and Magnus. They are so beautiful together it's crazy that they came out in 2000. They were the shining "must haves" of the RID line, and out many figures in Armada to shame.

    Also if you're interested in making him even more badass, there are many configurations to add the Prime armor on too. I can somehow manage to get the missile lift arm on the back of Omega Prime by flipping down the grating and wedging them through the gun's parts that stick out, but I don't know how to mod it to get it look exactly like this. It's not my picture, but it was the one that made me seek out and buy these guys. WARNING: Anyone viewing this photo who does not have these two already may receive a sharp stimulation from the pants region and have an urge to spend oodles of cash just to get them. Those that already own the pair may still experience the vibe and there have been a few reported cases of re-buying.

    I want to see that Matrix Blade kit stuck on this guy. Screw Classic's Prime!

    The win is of extraordinary magnitude.

    I'm a definitely have to place his missile pods on his legs but idk about the ladder and all, though I DO like the fact that Prime's gauntlet's have cannons on them, wish there was a way to mount them on Omega's shoulders. For now I leave his parts in their base mode.

    I wonder how much more kickass he'll be once I'm done modding Optimus into an artillery truck.
