Any update on the light up gimmick? I didnt expect him to be this bigger when i saw it personally.
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.
- love the mold
- the new arm looks great
- fits perfectly with WFC/FOC
- 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?
This is the exact reason I haven't ordered this guy yet.
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.
ive always hated this mold so its a very easy pass for me. the new deco looks great though
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.
ahh, man. neutered electronics? :'(
Okay Now I want this.
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.
wait, you saw this at retail? i thought they were amazon/bbts exclusive?
This thing looks incredible. Amazing what a new paintjob + parts can do.
You do realize which part of the world celebrates Chinese New Year right? ;-)
Great color scheme!
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.
