    That would be the only way I would buy one.I'm sure the way the plastic is it would not hold dye.

    Like you, perhaps?

    Tomy owned the rights to the Skylynx and Omega Supreme molds. The Takara/Tomy merger let Takara release them. We went over this all when SkyLynx was announced. Hell, I even predicted Omega would be next.

    Methinks this is a swipe against those who justified buying KOs of Mirage, Metroplex, Wheeljack, etc. with the argument that the original molds were either physically or legally unavailable for use by HasTak, thus leaving no chance of an official reissue.

    I don't know if Omega actually fell into that category, but having him in the Encore line is giving me hold out hope for a lot of reissues I might otherwise have given up on....

    Would have been nicer to do outback. Only minibot with a gun. :) 

    Even though I have an original g1 powerglide, warpath, cosmos and a 100% complete omega supreme already, I do want both of these. I'm now waiting for hlj to do an early bird.

    Also gotta wonder if they'll include a cardboard face for omega that you could put in/over the window head. :) 

    Oh yea, gift sets. Here's hoping for some seacons. They can totally do those.

    It was probably a ko anyway. :)  :D

    what the hell are you even talking about? :lol 

    both skylynx and omega were made by toybox (or is it toyco, i keep confusing 'tween the both of em). nothing to do with bandai and everything to do with the takatomy merger.

    jumping the gun rants FTL.

    T_T No purple astrotrain.
    Omega Supreme looks awesome though. Purple Astrotrain is a deal breaker for me though on importing classics unless they do more seekers.

    Again, the Astrotrain(s) pictured are the US version and some unpainted versions. I'm going to venture that the final paint scheme is not known yet.

    OMG, thanks for that pic, Randy. I can see Mirage clearer now....and he definitely looks like he has shiny chrome on not just rear spoiler, but the front one as well!!!! AWESOME!

    Oh, I'm well aware of that. Nothing's more G1-accurate than a light gray Megatron with wings, bits of token chrome and bright orange-red, and Monarch eyebrows. Then again I suppose it's technically more G1-accurate than a light gray Megatron with wings, purple/green/orange bits, and Monarch eyebrows though. :)

    Right, time to get out the organ-sales checklist, and work out how much this is going to cost...

    Omega Supreme? *ticks off spleen*
    J-Classics Prime and Starscream? *ticks off small intestine*
    Minibots? *ticks off what's left of liver*

    It's a good time for TF *and* medical science. But if Shockwave and the Dinos do eventually see a reissue, I'm going to be in trouble... ;)

    Whoah, awesome news all around!
    I pretty much expected Omega Supreme to be reissued when Sky Lynx was announced, but it's really nice that it is now official.
    Also classics Starscream and movie premium Prime are amazing!

    2008 is gonna be another great but expensive year.
