    Don't forget his arms and legs stuck into the ports all over Omega.

    My thoughts: I'm really frikkin' glad I convinced myself to not buy an omega sentinel on ebay. I'd have been so annoyed right now!

    This guy looks so awesome!

    Not really. Way too late for that.

    I'd like to think that they'd get him to us by Chinese New Year, but given the fact that YotD Prime went up for preorder in July... I don't think that's really a priority.

    I'm tempted to get this guy to count as WfC Omega Supreme. Scale looks to be as close as we'll ever get.

    Since he splits into two vehicles, he lacks waist articulation... but the arms and legs are sufficiently articulate I suppose. Nice ratchets anyway.

    it wouldnt have the gun arm thats the original. the new one coming out has a totally different right arm and i assume isnt a headmaster.

    im hoping they do add some articulation to the arms though becuase while it isnt bad for its era it could be better but hey ill be glad to take BFG arm of grabby hand any day.

    Just the one. Big, imposing bad ass.

    The bulk and the design really doesn't allow for too much in the way of dynamic poses, but admittedly, I haven't tried too much with him.

    I hate it. I hate that Hasbro have done this to me.

    I got my Energon Omega Supreme for £15 from EBay, and I love him to bits, but now Hasbro are going to force me to spend a fortune to replace him with this utterly awesome retool!!! You bastards!

    Oh and everyone saying about the lack of gun hand, that left arm has laser lights effects. I've always seen it as more of a massive pulse laser than an actual hand anyway!

    Not incredibly keen on the new head mind. Looks a bit puny. Much prefer the old headmaster.

    Agreed on all counts. I bought Omega Sentinel at retail when it came out, but just maybe two months ago got Omega Supreme. Now I have to get this guy as well.

    I agree that the original hand is something of a laser, but if they remolded the claw, they could have made the laser into something a bit better. Maybe just turned the alt mode into a submarine or something.

    The new head does look awfully puny. I rather liked the original Energon head as well, but I am all for G1 accuracy and hopefully the new head will be ok.

    cool poses? ehh ... kinda of hard but not impossible. i will admit i find his 2 turret modes to be of some use of you like basebuilding. his right arm basemode turret is kind of um ... well its lame comepared to his left hand. but with this newer version coming up ... thats going to change!

    i know! i paid $115 for mine off guage bay last year around christmas, the shipping was $15 and got for $100. felt was good deal and yes was a auction not buy it now. barely won. but this new one ... jaw drops. musthaveitnowtakeallmymoney.

    now the energon hand, the right arm, was some sort of forcefield/electromagnetic wave weapon. sort of like something like the gravity gun from ... that PC game .. not portal but ... cant think of it.

    Definitely hope to pick this up. Now if only they'd remold the head of the Energon version and give us Classics Astrotrain.
