First off, this isn't so much a review as a list of first impressions. Mostly I'll just add to things that we already knew from previously posted pics. Feel free to add your thoughts once you have him in hand. My opinion, in a nutshell: An AWESOME figure that is well worth its price. Now for details. He's HUGE, as you well know. A good 13.5 inches from foot to top of head, in this pose. Head sculpt is awesome, as we already know. By the way, in my opinion the head is just the right size. But eh, to each his own. Just be careful prying open the head canopy, it's a bit difficult and tight. Yes, it seems that the head does not detach, but rather tucks into the train torso half during transformation. The claw legs (?) have independent joints at two points each, so can be posed separately. What I don't like about this is that there's no way for the claw to grab stuff since there are no ratchets in the joints. Additionally, the mid joint does not use a pin, just pegs and holes, so the front half of a claw leg may fall off if handled too strongly. Can be easily reattached, though. By the way, the part of the forearm where the claw is attached rotates freely, so you can create some sort of drill effect. I've seen a review of Energon Omega Supreme that says the figure can't hold any pose because he's too heavy. I don't know what's different with YOTS Omega (I never had or was able to handle the Energon version), but he can pretty much handle any pose I subject him to. The only detriment to posing that I can find is--say it with me--NO ANKLE TILTS! Sarcasm aside, his joints are very tight, but not so tight that it feels like something is breaking. Like I said, he's HUGE. And no matter how big a fan I am of Giant, I have to admit that Herc would be a more formidable foe for this Omega. And the obligatory high kick. Now now many figures are able to high kick the top of Overlord's head? Finally, from what I've seen so far, paint job is top notch. I'm not feeling transforming this dude yet. I'm still enjoying what his bot mode can offer too much. Suffice it to say that I am very satisfied with this figure so far. I'm glad that I bought him; he definitely has a place in my collection.
