In a Hasbro Press Release (http://biz.yahoo.com/bw/040210/105600_1.html), the company had the following to say about the upcoming Energon Omega Supreme toy.

TRANSFORMERS ENERGON OMEGA SUPREME FIGURE

As the AUTOBOTS battle UNICRON, the OMEGA SUPREME character is the ultimate combiner in the quest for ENERGON. The figure stands at an incredible 16" in robot mode and it is actually two vehicles -- an awesome aircraft carrier and a battle train -- that combine to make a super robot. OMEGA SUPREME is action-packed with electronic lights and sound, additional mechanized features, firing projectiles and holds MINI-CON figures. OMEGA SUPREME can also combine with the new OPTIMUS PRIME figure for even bigger ENERGON play. (Approx. $49.99; Available in fall)

Now, if we could just get some pictures...

Have there been any, other than the low-res pictures of some of the sketches?

I don't think so. I think Hasbro wants to keep the look of this toy a secret.

I sure hope that when they see "Minicon Posts" they mean battle stations and not just powerlinx points...

whoa that seems like a F***ing kickass toy. actually seems like Hasbro is trying to modernize the G1 characters.... It sounds like a modern Omega Supreme just like Shockblast being a modern Shockwave.

but hold up everyone who says that Omega Powerlinx with the Megazord looking Optimus Prime..... it said the NEW Optimus Prime that means that they could be going with the Deluxe model Optimus Prime. Omega's coming out in fall which means that's plenty of time for Hasbro to get the Deluxe Optimus Prime out. and it will probably have a powerlinx slot just like all the other deluxe Autobots.

Whoa, you lost me.

Who said there was going to be another Energon Prime design? Far as I know, the only Prime toys they've come out with have been Megazord Prime and the Supercon Prime.

I got that part.

The question is: Which Prime is he referring to when he says 'Deluxe'? One of the two Prime toys that have been produced (Megazord Prime or Fatimus Jr. with Kicker), or some Prime toy that only he's aware of.

I think he's referring to Tubimus (mini-Fatimus, officially STD Convoy) that Hasbro have reportedly stated that they aren't currently interested in releasing.

My thoughts - It's gonna be linking with Megazord Prime (Grand Convoy), of course. The two things are gonna be in similar size brackets. If Omega Supreme combined with STD Convoy, it'd look positively RS.

I might wait for official toy pics before deciding whether I can stand to part with A$125 for it.

That's what I figured.

It just sounded like he was saying he knew something noone else did...

well the one thing i do know is that there is alot of time between now and fall hasbro still might decide to release the Deluxe Optimus Prime or they might have him come in a two-pack with Omega Supreme.

Doubtful. The only way I could see Hasbro changing their mind is if fans start clamoring for the Supercon Optimus Prime.

Considering that most everything I've heard about Megazord Prime has said that he's only really decent in his combined mode, I doubt anyone's going to write Hasbro demanding that they release the chubby little bastard.

You really want Tubimus to be released in the US, don't you?

Well, that's too bad. Most people are of the opinion that Fatimus' normal robot mode is worse than AR Side Swipe. Judging by the initial reception that Fatimus received, I doubt that Hasbro are even gonna consider repainting it. And going by the amount of repaints going around currently, that means it really does suck.

Besides, why in the hell would they release two figures who aren't even meant to combine together in the one bit of packaging?

Also, why would they put the cheap price Prime in with the equally dearest TF in the series?:wall: One's meant to appeal to the people who want a Prime, but can't afford to shell out A$70-100 on a huge bit of plastic. The other one's meant to appeal to the people who can and will fork out A$100+ for an even larger bit of plastic, namely collectors and completists. That'd be like packaging Brave Max with Spychangers - RIDICULOUS!

Look mate, pursue your STD Convoy all you want, but everyone else would rather it not be a Hasbro release, because that'd mean more shelf space for worthwhile TFs.

dude Fargo i was just stating my OPINION on what i think would happen. Personally i hate almost all the Energon toys that have been released so far. The only two that i really like are Starscream and Battle Ravage.

I think boththe Energon Optimus Prime's are horrible. i mean every optimus that has been released recently has been FAT. The original and G2 were both skinny. I think these two Energon primes are of the worst design{ the combined megazord Prime is cool if u want a gestalt loooking Prime but i still dont want it.

I think that Hasbro/Takara should stop making prime to be this sumo wrestler look alike with his gut. and forget these crappy new toys that are horrible and make some more better energon figures that are worth wild

But i will say that i am looking forward to the Omega Supreme toy i still won't buy optimus for them to combine. so i think im going to buy Omega Supreme, maybe Scorponok, maybe Shockwave, Alpha Q, Sharkticon, Springer{possible name} and Slugslinger{once i see the pics of him}.

So King Fargo to respond to your comment on me wanting STD Prime{which sounds like a disease}. I HATE BOTH ENERGON PRIMES I THINK THEY BOTH SUCK ASS!

Really, Omega's gonna have to knock me off my feet to warrant that price point. It's not like Unicron, which was a figure that people have been waiting a long time for. Furthermore, his combined mode with Prime'll have to be really f*ckin' sweet to make me consider getting Fatimus.

That's good. That's very good.

...forget these crappy new toys that are horrible and make some more better energon figures that are worth while.

Exactly my opinion, which is why I don't want either Fatimus or Tubimus clogging up my local stores. Kmart still has about 6 AR Primes of various colours lying around, for crying out loud.

Well, I'm sorry, but your opinion left you on the wrong side of one of my mindless rants.

God damn it ...

Thats another one I have to get ...

I missed out on Armada Unicron(That and I wasn't going to pay $140 for that thing) so I'm getting Energon Unicron, Prime ... Mirage ... Cliffjumper ... wait didn't I say ages ago that I was aiming to get EVERY single Energon toy ...

Now I have a better reason to aim for that goal ...:)

If you want Aramada Unicron.. my Toys R Us is selling both the Aramada version, the Energon version, and if I'm lucky.. I can find the Armada yellow version in the Energon box (I saw it once there) and I believe their all going for $39.99 still.. I'd have to check.. Anyways.. I dont' know what ya all were talking about megazord, std, deluxe, giga, jr, whatever you guys were going on and on about.. my guess is it had something to do with the Japanese versions.. I dunno.. anyways. I know Armada had basically 2 toys.. and Energon has one toy so far... but there must be another Prime coming out.. there just has to be... maybe it will come out when Megatron is released..

Windrazor - quick precis of the terms you have stated you don't know in this thread.

*Megazord Prime - Energon Optimus Prime. The big guy, whose "super mode" combination scheme resembles that of many Power Rangers toys, known as "Megazords". Also known as "Fatimus Prime".

*STD Convoy - STandarD Convoy. What they call the little, cheaper Primes in Japan. Also known as "Fatimus Junior".

*Deluxe; Giga, etc - Size/pricing names. Basic = small stuff/minicons. Deluxe = The ones a bit bigger, ie. Hot Shot and pals. Mega = the one above that, ie. AR Scavenger repaint. Ultra = known as "Giga" in Armada toy pricing. AR Megatron and the Tidal Waves belong in this size. Super = Primes usually fall in this size bracket. Supreme = bloody huge, ie. Unicron and the planned Omega Supreme.

Oh.... so Optimus Prime has an STD now? Hmm.. good thing I don't participate in sexual activities with robots..
heh heh heh...

Actually.. I know of the Basic, Deluxe, Ultra, Super, and Supreme models, because whenever i can I try to pick up boxes for my collection at Walmarts... and its listed right on the box of what they are.. so.. umm.. yeah..

Well..... umm.. there Are.. SOME ... positive things ... hmm.. like.. the head does resemble the original Omega Supreme.. and he has.. umm.. a claw.. well.. that doesn't help much.. but.. yeah..

To tell you the truth, I wouldn't have cared if he looked nothing like the OG Omega. I was hoping that he'd look good for that price. I definitely won't be getting him unless he's such a poor seller that they have to give him away.

WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
that thing is the biggest piece of **** that i've seen in a long ass time.how many sh*tty toys is hasbro gunna make!?!?!?!?!?!?
lets see not only has hasbro recked the names of possible good toys like shockblast and bulkhead. but they have recked the tradition of names like omega supreme by placing those names on crappy figures. They get us all siked up about these new toys and then they turn out so crappy.
So looking past all that, hasbro has even lost the trademark names to a lot of their transformers figures. then having to put Autobot or Decepticon in front of each reissue or puttin Rodimus Major instead of Hot Rod.
Hasbro really needs to get someone in charge of the TF projects that actually understands Transformers and knows what the hell he is doing.

Windrazor
2004-02-15, 08:03 AM
Well.. to tell you the truth.. most of the figures so far don't look that appealing to me.. I got Optimus Prime.. because he IS Optimus Prime.. but he still looks terrible.. his deluxe mode is really ugly and fat looking.. and then he has 4 drones that are the equivalent to Roller that make him bigger and look somewhat better.. even though his helmet looks ugly for his bigger head. So far the only ones I actually like, are Rodimus, Battle Ravage, Hot Shot, and Unicron (only cuz he's the same as in Armada) I don't have Tidal wave yet, but I'm sure he's just as good. On the whole though.. the only new line I actually like.. are the Alternators.. now THOSE are sweet!!!
