Maketoys MCB-001 Armageddon Upgrade Kit

Posted on 01-30-2013 at 08:36 AM by process under 3rd Party Unlicensed
MCB001-1
Third party group Maketoys has updated their website with a teaser for what appears to be an accessory set for the recently released Year of the Snake Omega Supreme. Dubbed the Armageddon Upgrade Kit, the set includes several attachments, including Omega's iconic "wings". The set then unfolds into a familiar base and launch platform.

This is the first in Maketoy's Mega City bot series, but we have no information whether this line will strictly include accessories, or complete city-sized characters.

Additionally, Maketoy's Mobine Paladin/Chaos and the Mobine Missile Launcher armors have been delayed to March due to design revisions and improvements.

Staff Note: This is a 3rd party item not produced or endorsed by Hasbro or Takara Tomy.

Wow, I really need to get YotS OS now.
citoria
the silhouette of the battle station is clearly the old Omega Supreme toy.

While the track looks WAY to wide, this could be the set to bring Omega up to snuff!!
supervir2
Those tracks kind of look like crap
Mr_K
I like where they're going with this...
blueben
They should try to change the head too.
Grendel1979
Looks good, but no fix to the non claw arm?
Geterman
I thought this thread was about a G1 Omega upgrade
primetime77
meh...i'd rather someone just make a complate G1 omega. WFC omega was cool but i have no attachment to the guy...if someone made a g1 inspired version....i'd bite probably.
megatroptimus
To pretend the ship is a rocket is kinda silly (or is that a tower?), but I like the overall setup in "base" mode.
Timesynch
Interesting. Wish they made a bigger head. The stock head sculpt looks great but it looks so small on the body. And no left arm cannon add-on? Agreed that the track wings look way too wide too, but the battle station mode seems promising. There's just not enough of the fixes I want here for me to pick up YotS OS though, at least not from what I'm seeing.
Prime Evil
Who's the lil bot?
process
Little Battle Tanker.

^ thanks! Since I am passing on the Planet X version, I may be in on this. Final product pending that is.
archieboy
I wish they would turn that left arm into a proper rocket cone/cannon
slugslinger2004
Doesn't look that good so hopefully YOTS Omega doesn't go out of stock everywhere and shoot up n price before I get one.
CodeXCDM
Figures someone would make the concept for it.

...thing is... I sure as heck won't spend 100 buck for a few simple panels... Would have to see what those other attachments using the Energon Ports are all about.

BTW... if you don't want to wait for any 3rd party upgrades to YotS Omega... take a cue from uuser's FANTASTIC Omega custom:



Sports Unicron's leg kibble as wings... and a Shockwave/blast cannon is attached to the other arm.
ryu hayabusha
i wonder if the color will be a neutral, so it can go with the Energon omega?
archieboy
One good thing about this is that at least now we know that someone is working on an upgrade for this mold.
CyclonuS_ZerO
F-u-c-k___y-e-s!!!!!!!
Grimlock_13
Very interesting...the tracks as wings look terrible even in silhouette but if the base mode alone is good it may be worth buying if the price isn't outrageous.
MegaMoonMan
You know what they say about polishing a turd.

Two things:

1) You can via DORO DUNGO!!! Mythbusters proved it: Mythbusters Polishing a Turd - YouTube

2) In YOUR opinion Energon Omega is a Turd. Not everyone (like moi) would agree.
hardreturn
sigh

does anyone have a pic of giant beside that mold?
JukeOutlander
I'd buy it for Energon O.S.
Mobb One
Think I'd still rather have genesis...even with the crap alt-modes.
Bountyan
No add-on to make the left hand look better?

What's the tiny red robot standing at the bottom and on OS's shoulder for?
^o^CORVUS^o^
Very intereshtink!
Shatterpoint
Welp, that's on the list.
MACRAPTRON
Fuck that, where's Computron?
DJW107PRIME
Color me curious.
BlueAngel_Bolt
It's kind of odd having the ship as a tower, but damn it looks fantastic.
Josh
nothx

Pardon the blurriness:

Rodimus_Prime
We'll wait and see. Not too interested at this time...
Trent
Underwhelming to say the least.
Jehsee
I see 2 blocks added to the thighs and 2 tracks on the back... neither of which actually improves the look of the bot-mode at all, which is what I'd be displaying if I owned the figure. I was excited at first, but after looking at it... I'm not impressed... yet.
masishadow
Can someone lighten this up, please?

There's not really anything to lighten up. It's a completely solid color silhouette with no hidden details, unlike the MMC one.
divinecomedy
What will impress me is when they start meeting their release dates. Anyway, not a big fan of the mould, so will not be getting this.

Are you saying that because it's shit? Are you saying that because you bought Genesis instead of buying this and subsequently could've saved more money. Or are you saying that because there is still yet to be an updated Omega Supreme that's worthy of a purchase

I bought Genesis so I have no interest in this at all.

Edit: I wonder how much this will cost? $50?

I think he's saying it because there's too much cool 3rd party stuff draining everyone's wallets
dwong1207
I'm interested in seeing more...if it looks good and the price is right, maybe.

Course... he's not a G1 Omega... and it's not like scales are all that consistent outside a few charts that the cartoon didn't even follow... so... *smh*

ditto.
unicronic
Looks interesting. YOTS OS is a good update of the original concept. A transportation vehicle and an artillery vehicle. Now with some extras to potentially create a launch pad for the Yamato section and a track for the Maser Cannon - NERDGASM ACHIEVED!!

Autobot City next perhaps?

OptionZero
DO NOT TEASE US LIKE THAT

but seriously, MT needs to release the stuff it's already shown (Mobain, Computron) before more teases
