    You know its amazing that one of OS vehicle modes looks like a maser cannon either separated or combined..its awesome. Skeeve, you definitely hit the nail on the head on what you said it just took me awhile to realize that. And also I think a 3rd party upgrade for this figure would be cool.

    Omega does come with Missiles right? I'm not seeing them loaded in the pictures.

    I am so on the fence with this guy.

    Pros:
    - love the mold
    - the new arm looks great
    - fits perfectly with WFC/FOC

    Cons:
    - I thnk the head is too small
    - I really worry about all the gold/brown/mustard plastic

    Do I really need another Giant bot that will just get packed away?

    Welcome to my world. I have ONE shelf for giant figures set aside, but so far only one (ROTF Jetfire) is there. I want Omega, but I don't want him separated from my WFC/FOC figures and the price is just killing me. 20 dollars cheaper, and I would be leaning more towards making the investment

    I think they made the head small was to create the illusion of him being massively powerful and those colored plastics you mentioned its actually paint, so that might ease your conscience a little.

    Can't wait to get this guy. I remember during the time of Energon that they (Hasbro) toyed with the idea of making one half of the body a rocket, but decided to do a Battleship instead. Too bad they didn't do it this go around...but I guess even remolding the battleship portion might have driven the price up to undesirable levels.

    BTW OP, thanks for the pics. :D

    Nice pics! Won't be picking this up unless there are any left in stock at Amazon and they do a crazy $40-50 off like Jetwing Prime. I'd pick it up in a heartbeat for 50-60 bucks.

    So glad I preordered this guy, I can't wait to pit him against Green Giant and FP Bruticus. I'm not too bothered about the electronics I usually get annoyed with them and remove the batteries anyway. Thanks for the review pics they have satisfied my need for this guy until I get him in hand.

    Herc and Omega

    He looks perfect with my Hercules. They are so symbiotic in terms of scale, color and dare I say detailing. Being trigger happy with my iphone camera...Wish i knew how to upload the high res version of it..

    Saw this, along with Optimus, at Toys R Us a few days ago. Had a huge stack of them. Priced at NT$3999.
    Didn't pick it up yet, but planning to. Did get the two packs of Blasters 'data discs' though.

    This thing looks incredible. Amazing what a new paintjob + parts can do.

    Last time I saw, the sun still revolved around the earth as well. And 1 US dollar still can buy a big burger, fries and shake.

    Anyway, saw a ton of this in the Singapore Toys R Us as well.
