    Agreed; I would pick that Shockwave up as well.

    As for Omega Supreme, I'm still not sure. I skipped out on the Energon version, bc I just wasn't diggin it.
    The new head and claw arm are an improvement imo, I just don't like his vehicle mode. However, I have a feeling I'll end up buying this one since Omega is one of my favorite Transformers, and I think this one will be as close as it'll get to a Classics update of him.

    Closest thing we'll get to a WFC Omega. By which I mean he has one arm and the head.

    That mold is already golden, I'm very excited for this. Infact, before their Classics and Generations counterparts existed, Energon was filled with acceptable stand ins for G1 characters.

    So the headmaster feature is gone then? Less playability, but probably not a bad move if trying to entice the purists.

    I think his vehicle mode NOW looks ok. Correct me if I'm wrong but wasn't Energon O.S. two vehicle that could connect.

    This new version with the new parts would be what looks like a Battleship and a portable cannon which I'm ok with simply because there has always been a severe lack of water vehicle Transformers.

    If Year Of The Dragon Optimus Prime was any indication this thing is gonna be expensive as sin. :( 

    After my wallet being destroyed by both MP Soundwave and his cassettes and Encore Fort Max (huge ouch) I don't know if I'll be able to swing him afterall.

    Yeah, I'm not happy about that removal, as I've always thought this was icing on the cake for the E-Omega mold. The other retools of this mold are a pleasant surprise. I'd been just as happy with a straight up redeco of this mold, as it's pretty awesome as is. When this comes out, we're all in for a real treat I think :)

    So is this and that Optimus the only Generations reveals from NYCC? Wow.

    On the plus side, it definitely fits the whole WFC Omega role. I wonder if it'll still come with a headmaster...

    It was easily a given that they would reissue energon prime to go with Omega supreme since they are supposed to combine together anyway.

    Now I want a Wingsaber reissue. :(

    the reason i love boat for this guy over rocket is that in today's day and age, you can't hide a rocket in the state of Oregon-someone would see it, damn govt. But a boat-a boat can be anywhere.

    definitely down for omega. it's one of those toys I always thought about getting but never pulled the trigger at kinda high-ish secondary market prices.

    but hey, minty g1 deco, retooled head & arms? sign me up.

    no optimus for me though. energon one is still sitting on my aec shelf complete. kinda a turd of a figure, but I guess it might finally have a use with omega.

    Don't really like the new head... and if it lost the Headmaster ability then I'm super disappointed. Otherwise I'll just wait to hear the price, but I'm probably passing on this.

    I like it and will probably buy one. A great Generations Omega. Big clunky mold with new molded parts that push for the war for cybertron look.

    If I can get it for just under $100 through Amazon then I think the price is right.

    Depends on my budget for next year if I go for year of the snake Optimus to.
    Nothing to special to me about him though the Cab has a lot more cohesive colors over the original. A whole lot less megazord like in the combined robot colors.

    The combined mode isn't very impressive. It's just Omega Supreme's body with Optimus Prime's head on top.
