I GOTTA HAVE THIS!!!
I wish I could afford to get one
Nice run-down, Foster
^ This. That'll get the turret going, you can see how the fold in chest part isn't all the way in in that pic.
Sweet total breakdown! I like the inclusion of the copyright stamps and such. I have one on pre-order, I want the Guardian one too but $...
I couldn't remove the face shield with fingernail-prying pressure and due to the head rotating motors, I didn't want to try disassembly. Maybe someone that has experience with junker Omegas can offer some insight.
Thanks for the tip, got the turret rotation to work just fine.
I know, someone has to write a comic where he makes the Omega symbol with his wings in a final attack blast ala Fire Guts God Ginrai.
Unfortunately, the cams are still plastic. They look just like the old ones:
Bugger. But I wonder if they'll be able to now make us some spares?
And from the first post, your original sounds different to mine. I had the big autobot symbol on the chest is printed on too, and I have the rub symbol. Might just be differing production runs which was common for things to then be changed back in the day.
I want that toy, so awesome!
thanks to the latest animated episode....i WANT THIS!!!!!!!!!!!
He is several kinds of sexy but unfortunately between the animated figures and new binaltechs, I am completely brassic
I do have an orignal Grandstand Omegatron however, so I can comfort myself with that. But to have that and the new reissue and the ehobby version would give me 3 different omegas and I really kinda want to do that
the face is like the one in TF animated!
I love the new face sculpt, VERY cool and different. Omega was one of my absolute favs as a kid. A great tribute and great review.
I think the face looks pretty cool! Great pics and I am glad I preordered!
The original Omega Supreme has the rubsign in the same location. Very good review, beautiful piece, but the new face isn't enough for me to re-buy Omega Supreme but I can't wait to get the eHobby Guardian
Aw dammit.....wasn't gonna get Omega due to the cost but looking at these pics and the review....GAH!
Now I have to go and preorder the thing. I never have had Omega in my collection due to various issues but this reissue is too sweet to pass up. I love what they did to give him a face, and his sheer size makes him that much more badass.
Great post, Foster. This will definitely sway those that may be on the fence either way about this toy.
Never was a fan of this toy...then again all I had was an incomplete example a few years ago as I never owned him as a kid back in the day. Looks real nice though, considering picking him up...just wish he wasn't so expensive.
Looks really good. Makes me miss the Omega Supreme I had a few years back. The new face looks good to me, and I like that the big Autobot symbol is tampo'd on now. I would definately pick this guy up if I didn't have Metroplex and the minibots on pre-order.
Thanks to this review I pulled the trigger. Can't wait to get mine.
This fig just jumped up to "Next TF purchase". Now that I got all the Animated figs that are out here.
I really like the face. Makes him look more like a TF and closer to his G1 onscreen self.
Great review & pics, think it just changed my mind over the face issue.
I can't wait for mine, hell I might even get two if I get the chance.
thanks for the review and pics. I hope my preorder gets here soon.
