    $100 is not a bad price, but I think a price drop will happen sometime. There's been one with the other recent Amazon releases, and there's probably a chance of a $20-ish or more drop at some point. It'd be even more awesome if it was close to 50% like with Jetwing Prime. So holding off for now, but do plan to own this eventually.

    I'm just leaving mine with BBTS. I plan to ship my pile of loot when Fortress Maximus drops. If they do a decent enough price drop on the Prime I will pick it up. For now just going with Omega Supreme.

    I was on BBTS today and added about 300 dollars worth of stuff into my POL. So now it makes more sense for me to order these from BBTS.

    Nice that this is on Amazon, will wait for the eventual price drop like what happend with the G2 Bruticus and Jetwing Prime. You will be mind eventually.

    I don't ever remember Amazon dropping the price on G2 Bruticus when he was listed. How far below $59.99 it get?

    It could happen, for example Transformers Optimus Prime Jetwing Movie Deco was sold in $52 (December 2012).

    I going to preorder Omega Supreme anyway, because you never know.

    Guys, are you gonna buy this Optimus Prime? it doesnt look to good and what about the combination with Omega Supreme?

    Never had the Energon one.

    Omega Supreme bot mode is very WFC-FOC, he is gonna look amazing in my FOC collection. Transformers are not like this anymore.

    I preordered Omega because I don't want to miss him. I do want Prime, too, but I'm sure there'll be plenty and the price is bound to go down.

    Preordered with amazon credit. I am a little surprised it is not a cheaper list price than bbts. The free shipping makes it a better deal for me but not as much as I expected. I need sell off my energon set now.

    It was number #3 in the Toys section a few hours ago, I doubt it'll last very long so order while you can!
    Preordered mine last night, £89 shipped to the UK is a bargain!

    I think a lot of people are forgetting that as you point out these massive discounts happen around Christmas. Now I'm not saying there won't be a price cut a month or two after it is released if it doesn't move very well but I wouldn't expect Omega to hit anywhere near $52 like Jetwing Optimus did. Demand for Omega seems very high right now even with the $100 price tag.

    I would suggest that anyone that wants one put in a pre-order just in case. If it sells out at least you will have it and won't have to pay the even higher after market price. If it is close to release and it hasn't sold out then you can just cancel it and hope the price goes down and you can get it before it sells out.

    I e-mailed amazon about the release date, and they said they have no idea when it's coming out. So much for the april date. It could be this month for all we know.

    I think you are right or at least I don't remember something similar in other month.

    I have already preordered my Omega supreme, he is gonna look awesome with my Transformers FOC. :D

    The box conditions matter to me. Amazon's G2 Bruticus came all banged up around the corners, while the BBTS one came perfect without damage.

    I agree completely but would also want a 3P to do a proper left arm = SANS OVEN MIT

    Just interesting that a little over 2 years ago, someone might have bought that for 3 grand...

    Box condition for something like this would normally matter to me too, but with that awful art on it, the box is going straight in the trash.
