    Forgot I even had mine haha. I actually preordered it when it first appeared on Amazon last year. Its a great toy to just have looking all imposing and stuff on your shelf, not a huge fan of the alt mode though.

    I actually would've thought it would sell out faster than it did. I guess people didn't really want it when it came out, but with the Platinum Series continuing, maybe people want it for a complete set of Platinum toys.

    I think Planet X genesis kinda hindered the sales of yots omega. I opted for yots myself.

    It would be nice not to pay almost twice the price of the original figure.

    YOTS OS was a pleasant surprise for me last year. I ended up liking him much better than I had expected. He is a very good modern representation of the character, large, menacing, powerful and intimidating.

    I guess I better finally grab one. The other one is just too expensive to ever happen for me.

    Got mine from retail here in Australia (Big W) for $98 last year, which is really good IMO. :)

    I bought one last week.. after I saw how good it looks with the add-on, and considered how popular Maketoys stuff tends to be, I decided to grab one before it's too late. You know that once Amazon and BBTS sell out, the price is going to double. I'm glad I got him.. he's a great figure for the money.. I can't wait to put the armeggedon set on him.
