    Platinum Omega supreme OR MP15 & 16?

    Do you go with the behemoth Omega supreme with a simplistic transformation or the tiny but intricate mp cassettes?

    Just wondering what others out there would do in this situation and in your opinion, which is a bigger bang for your buck.

    Do you have Soundwave already? If so, I'd get the cassettes just to "complete" Soundwave. But it also depends on which character(s) you like more and what your preferences are.

    Apples and oranges man...

    If you are all in on MPs, go for the cassettes. If you want a really awesome Omega Supreme for your Classics collection, go that direction.

    MPs are secondary to my overall Classics collection, so I went with OS. I only pick up US releases of MPs, so I'll wait for Soundwave and the 5 cassettes...

    -I- would go for the casettes, but Omega is awesome too. I just don't have the space anymore...

    I do have MP soundwave, but I was originally going to pass on the cassettes and use the extra ebay funds to purchase omega supreme. Since their so small, it was hard justifying the price and I had already planned to use my united versions for frumble and henkei ravage to complete his minions. After seeing more pics of mp15/16, I am kind of torn on what to get now :lol

    Platinum Omega supreme is garbage...

    MP-15/16 is new and not some rehash of a shitty mold to begin with..

    Most of your post seems to indicate a strong leaning toward Omega Supreme. And before I got to your last sentence, I had to wonder why the hell you even bothered posting the thread if you seemed to have a good idea of what you wanted (you even had a plan to repurpose some other figures). But now we're back to square one so...:lol

    Yeah it's maddening having limited funds or I'd get both if I could. At the time though, I can only afford one and I have a feeling whatever I pass up, will most likely rise in price by the time I can afford the other.

    How hard is it to limit yourself to the options the OP is asking about. He was very specific. He didn't ask for more options for his money.

    Is it that hard?

    I'd get Omega Supreme. He would look very nice next to the 30th Metroplex I'm getting later this year.

    Get omega now, pick up hasbro MP-13 later this year with the cassettes, and sell the soundwave & lazerbeak. You'll save quite a bit of money that way and end up with everything you want.

    Omega Supreme

    personally I'm waiting for US Soundwave to get the cassettes. Roughly $100 for $120 worth of cassettes + an entire Soundwave toy.

    :inquisiti  Good points on both ends. I didn't even think about metroplex and I agree they would look good together. Only problem with the Hasbro mp soundwave is going to be the ensuing shitstorm that follows after release :lol

    Is this directed at me or the Quakewave references?

    Quakewave. This always happens; some fan just asks us to help him choose between A or B, someone will always pop up thinking they know better and say "C".

    I figured. I didn't catch the QW reference the first time, so I was wondering what you were referring to. Sorry about that.

    EDIT: Forgot which MPs those were (because their names are not enough I suppose) Omega Supreme is still my answer, though.
