You know what I can't get over regarding Omega? That Hasbro/Takara really went the extra mile to do it right. They didn't have to remold the head and arm. They could have taken the easy route and just released Energon OS in G1 colors. A lot of fans still would have bought him, because he'd still be the most G1-ish Omega around for a Classics collection. But the new (really well-sculpted) head and arm go so far in selling this as a different, updated figure. It shows that HasTak really does know its product and its fan base. I'm grateful to whichever designer/engineer/brand manager stood by his or her guns and convinced the budget guys that this was a worthwhile thing to do.

Indeed. Now that I think of it... I'm wondering if that head simply doesn't remove from the post like the Energon version pretty much has to. There was that big old nub scuplted to look like an even more comically undersized head... and it slides into that panel where the proper Headmaster/Minicon attaches to... maybe it somehow does something similar?

Still... if it is detachable... I can see a 3rd party possibly making a newer and larger head for Omega... preferably a larger cast of this head... because really, this is a fantastic sculpt. They did a great job... just... it's tiny.

I like this figure, I just hope that Amazon is more reasonable than BBTS.

Also does that head transform like the original or what?

It's a shame the head is so small. The head sculpt and detail are fantastic. If it was just a bit bigger, OS would be perfect.
