Looks a bit Tonka-ish in primary colours.

Bulkhead isn't bad, with a distinct anime vibe in robot mode.

Yeah, Omega Supreme's kind of ugly. Not really feeling the color scheme. Other than that, he's cool though.

Bulkhead is......okay.

As for Strongarm, isn't it awfully early to be pumping out repaints?

I agree hardcore with why are they doing more repaints.

Bulkhead actually looks kinda cool, I dig the AH-64 transformation.

And Omega actually looks sharp in terms of everything but color choice. I love the battleship mode and robot mode and the train mode looks nifty. If only they had picked actual colors.

Omega Supreme looks...well... lets just say I am wanting that one so bad I am foaming at the mouth, I mean, it looks like they are carrying on the tradition of the original sorta, he turns into a few vehicles, and a REALLY big robot! at least I hope he's big.
And his Robot mode looks Uber cool!!!!
Springer ain't to shabby either, I can see those two joining my autobot ranks!

Omega remind anyone else of Tidalwave?

Aye.

It's the hands.

The BIG Omega Supreme question in my mind is.
"Is he made up of a bunch of smaller components like G1 Omega Supreme was?"
course if you remember G1 Supreme, it was more like transforming an entire playset into a robot, whole lotta peices.

Bulkhead looks pretty good. Offshot reminds me of signal flare. Omega also reminds me of tidal wave. I don't like his color.

The chest is also kind of similar.

Wow, Tidal Wave has become an Autobot! I still like him though.

That's because he is Signal Flare. The big radar dish thing kinda gives it away.

Bulkhead looks cool. I don't know why we need a repained Strongarm in the line. I might give Omega a chance.

Cause Hasbro just loves whoring out its molds at every opportunity?

Yeah omega Supreme has a very distinct "tidal wave" vibe to him.

Bulkhead reminds me of Rotor Force...I wonder if his propeller shoots off as a weapon?

I was thinking of that, too.

I'm really digging Bulkhead. The rest are iffy.

Offshot isn't a very good repaint. I like Bulkhead too, I think I'll wait until omega supreme goes on sale when energon is ending.

Well, seeing as how on the show it seems that are the Omnicons are just like "clones" as they share the same range of body types, it's actually kind of nice to see repaints. It gives them personality, like a few of them painted themselves differently to stand out from the crowd.

True, but I fail to see why they need to resort to doing repaints this early in the line. I mean, I can buy Offshoot since he's a different character, but Strongarm is still the same guy with a different color scheme.

Maybe he's the leader of the strongarms, and the rest are his troops.

They know that the only repaints I'm going to get are of really good molds and ones that i skipped because I either anticipated a better color scheme or I simply didn't like the colors.

In all seriousness, Energon is only supposed to be 29 eps or something like that, so they don't plan on doing too many molds for it.
