    He's a tad too big and a bit too greebly (for me at least, and a CW Devey scaled Omega is exactly what I'm looking for).

    Can't argue about the greebles... I wish I could get the perfectly round smoke effects off of him without scuffing it up, but eh... I think if he came with blast effects that looked like damage explosions instead of rocket engines, it might work a little better.

    Just to be nitpicky, because I can. Siege Omega is actually perfectly scaled to CW Devy. Omega is shown as being a couple heads taller than Devy, and this fits the bill.

    If you want a CW Devy sized Omega, well that's different.

    Scale is, virtually, entirely subjective when it comes to Transformers. For me, Omega is roughly a little taller then Devey, about a head or so. IDW is what got me back into TFs, I really don't care much for inconsistent cartoon scale (just saying).
    The one I saw, I think you can find pics in the KO thread still, was a 1:1 with CW Devey from the looks of it.

    I only recently (couple of months ago) got mine because of a discount and this size/scale is absolutely perfect for handling. If I had a gripe, it'd be there's really not much too him I guess? I mean, its not like there were that many gimmicks in the source media and he's a solid toy that hits all the checkboxes for Omega Supreme with a few bonuses, but there's just something missing in terms of the "robots are a boy's romance" feeling.

    Siege Omega is fine with CW Devy / POTP Predaking but then you lose everyone else.

    Except the Gravity builder OS KO is that big and I am currently looking at ditching the CW one for that guy due to how much more I like the design of them. So, yeah. It WOULD be nice to get a properly scaled Omega for that size BUT I am also thinking of picking up the DX's Omega simply because it's light years better then Hasbro's and only $10 more. It's just not what I want design wise nor scale wise.

    I am a huge fan of the PX Omega for this scale, I think he fitas in pretty well with them too.

    Size wise he's perfect but I'm looking for less WFC, more Marvel/Sunbow. Someday...

    It's actually from a pre-TF toyline from a now defunct (but well regarded) company named Toybox: this was called Super Change Robo Mechabot-1 (as a side note, it was designed by the same guy who designed the toy we know as Skylynx). Mechabot-1 was released in 1984 in Japan, and that was before we got Omega Supreme in the states in 1985.

    Grandstand licensed the toy for distribution in the UK in 1985.

    I picked up one of the black variants to make a custom Dark Guardian. Since Omega's the only Guardian that uses the face shield, I had a little more room to work with than I did for my custom Omega face.

    I'm pretty stoked about how it turned out, and am now hoping for the motivation to get to repainting this guy to the appropriate colors.

    Huge Dragon is scaled to go with the original Hulkie and the MFT 1:1 ko. He's a bit too small to go directly next to those other guys.

    I wish there was smaller DX9 Gabriel. DX9 Mightron had both MP and legends versions

    There was a time, long ago, when DX9 said that there would be a downsized War In Pocket version of Gabriel. Then the War In Pocket line died, and some of the designers ended up at Newage. There might be hope.

    So, I ordered the replacement head + Doc from ShowZ about a month ago (still floating slowly across the ocean, somewhere) and I went ahead and ordered the man, himself from HZJ yesterday. I've been on the fence about him for too long and now I'm really excited for him to get here.
