Cheap, big and fun.
No headmaster collection is complete without Energon Omega Supreme.
I have an opportunity to get him. Is he an upsized Energon Optimus Prime mold?
Not in the slightest, how did you come to that conclusion
Hehe sorry, just looking at his limbs and feet, he looks a little like Energon OP in Super mode so I thought I'd find out if that was the case.
Thanks for putting me straight.
Ah, I get it now. You're looking at the remold Omega Supreme, my bad, that one isn't a headmaster anymore. This is Energon Omega Supreme. This is the re-release remold Omega Supreme. And, no, it is not an upscale of Optimus. In fact, Optimus Prime can combine with it. There are actually three versions of the figure. (Not counting the Japanese version.) The remake is more 'G1' accurate, with remolding to make it look more like the original figure, but it loses the Headmaster Gimmick. All three are great, if you can afford them. Omega Sentinel is usually the most pricey these days.
Used to own him and wish I still did(And the Sentinel Repaint)
Worth tracking down. I’m currently trying to get the recolor/retool in Year of The Snake Omega Supreme.
Thankyou, I've actually decided to acquire two other targets instead at this point. Picking up Cybertron Evac and Energon Snowcat. Both have been on my radar longer than Omega and both come in pristine condition whereas the Omega figure had a piece missing.
It's great to see Landmine in the new IDW comics.
Snagged a couple more Star Saber protos I think you guys will appreciate! Same pre-tooling as the prior ones I picked up just different colours. I think this lends credence to them being testers for the clear plastic as I now have 2/3 in orange, 1 in yellow, 1 in purple and 1 in blue.
Massive, massive combiner. As much mass as three 2021 leader class toys.
I got him one Christmas as a kid and he was awesome. The biggest Transformer I’d ever had. Awesome looking robot, and loved his spaceship alternate mode.
So will always be one of my favourites.
Thanks for the reply and cool, nostalgic story too mate.
I dont mind toys shrinking, or weighing less, its the increasing cost.. for less that bugs me.
The biggest ripp off of the year for me was Commander Rodimus, small, light weight - even at sale price not a good deal. Total rip off at full price.
In contrast Commander jetfire at sale or full price to me was a fair deal and I love it.
but now the SG version is coming, and its almost double the price of the previous ones in a new color. (at least here).
Eh, not really.
It's true that size-wise Rodimus Prime is the smallest of the Commander-class sets by far, and wherever or not the asking price was worth it could be quite subjective. That said, I'm actually pretty happy that Kingdom Rodimus Prime didn’t suffer from the same price-point/budget compromises that drag ER Optimus Prime down; This set pack in a ton of impressive attention to detail to both Rodimus and his trailer, which further improves and refines aspects where previous figures (such as ER Optimus Prime, POTP Rodimus or MP-09 Rodimus) failed, with all of the "bell-and-whistles" you would ever want from a CHUG Rodimus Prime with no budgetary compromises anywhere.
Whereas ER Optimus prime has a puny, cheap trailer that only does the barest minimum and was too small to fit most Deluxe-class figures (thus defeating the purpose of it being a trailer that can carry a ton of stuff), Kingdom Rodimus here has a fully-featured trailer that has more than double the parts count of ER Optimus's trailer with some nice attention to detail that even Jetfire and Sky Lynx didn't have, and Rodimus Prime himself was an epic-looking figure with a ton of attention to engineering and attention to detail that puts even some of the Siege/ER/Kingdom Leader-class figures to shame.
Having the set in-person, I can say that Kingdom Rodimus Prime isn't just a "Voyager with a decked-out trailer and accessories".
Even just straight out of the packaging (And with the bizarre tolerances on some copies out there), the trailer itself structure, looks, and function-wise are miles ahead of any trailers included with any of the previous Leader-class figures of recent years; And there's definitely a lot of things you can do with Kingdom Rodimus Prime's trailer play-wise to worth the price in the long run.
I'm glad you like it, thats true for you.
Whats true for me, subjectively is that it was rubbish value and if they do it again at this price point, will not be buying anything else like it.
As a company hasbro laugh all the way to the bank, they put less paint, less detail on even a high priced toy like this, like WHERE is the paint on the wheels, that we DID have , on cheaper price toys? And fans eat it up and dont expect more of them.
Just a joke to me.
