    Still in stock at TF-Source, at a minimum. But no surprise it's selling out - words obviously getting around this is an amazing figure for the money.

    Thanks for the heads up. I can still order from BBTS too, but I wanted to have two for each mode. I transformed my guy today and tested out the alt mode, but its too large and looks clunky based on how i wanted to have it set up.

    Anyways I took some quick snaps and I can confirm this guy is awesome! Highly articulated, great quality and an overall joy to stare at. Thank you again @ToyDojo, @edbomber you did a superb job as always!

    If I believe FedEx's tracking, my Gabe is scheduled to come in tomorrow. Despite being sent out two days ago via BBTS's $5 shipping.

    Here's hoping their stock ends up at the better end of the QC spectrum.

    Something I wanted to do with mine, but, not unless I can pop off the Visor to do it. because as you can see in the photos, some of that food colored Future ended up getting on the grey plastic too.

    Received mine from Toy Dojo tonight (can’t rate them highly enough).

    Gabriel is fantastic. Poses like a beast.

    I cleaned that up after I seen it on the photos. All you have to do is use a little windex on a qtip to clean the excess off.

    Much appreciated. I am wowed at this figure. My biggest fear in getting large(r) bots is that they will look/feel cheapish. This guy is none of those. The thickness on this guy from the profile is amazing. The detail work in the legs
    and backside are remarkable as well. One of the many things that stands out and adds a ton to the character is the head being able to pull out and look around. I love having his face pointing downwards casting a menacing stare!

    Kudos to DX9!

    that is almost exactly how i feel about this bot.

    going into it i was really worried about having buyers remorse later on. but i am very happy with my purchase and all the awesomeness that is Omega Supreme.

    Oh man, I'm not ready to be a father....

    Got this one from BBTS and he seems to maintain the pattern of US retailers getting stock with acceptable QC.

    No water in the box (or sign that there ever was any). Manual is pristine. No paint issues on mine and the joints are generally decent. Only issues on that front are the elbows, which do move, but are scary tight. Might work on getting those loosened up to head-off any potential breakage. The lights don't work out of the box, but that could just be the batteries.

    Still need to spend more time putting Gabe through his paces, but so far I'm feeling happy I didn't cancel my preorder.

    For some reason that pic made me think of Frankenstein. I always grab his shoulder with 1 hand, and his arm with my other when moving, to sort of apply equal pressure. The copy I got from TFS (mentioned some pages ago) sounds just like yours. Does your claw & rocket have an odd smell to them though, because mine did, just those pieces.

    So.... are his eyes supposed to light up or not? And if so, how do you turn it on and/or insert batteries. Had mine for 2 months now and still cant figure out if it's head is supposed to light up or not.

    I applied two coats, results can vary based on how much food coloring you add. It is fully reversible by wiping it down with windex even after it dries.
