So far, about 2 months has gone into this, and i've finally found time to upload it. :D

I took a 'New Layzner' figure from R3 (Real Robot Revolution), and repainted it in Omega's colours. I'm yet to make his claw and rocket hands, but i plan to make them removable. Here's what i've done so far:

Nah, sorry. But i am planning to make a space station/rocket base after this is done. :)

Thanks a lot!

Basically, i've finished the waist armor, and added the final opening panels on his shoulders. Oh, and the extra vents on his chest. And one other thing...

Yes, it's finally done. Well, sort of. Only mode 2 to go!

Mode 1, is meant to represent Omega before he adopts his Rocket Base alt. mode.Therefore, his hands are regular, not a rocket nosecone and three pronged claw. Also, no tracks. And, his head actually opens up to reveal a cockpit!

So, without further adieu, i present to you...
...Omega Supreme (mode 1)!

Here's what i've done so far on mode two. The track 'wings' the G1 figure had are now replaced with actual model train tracks, magnetically atached to OS's back. [img=http://img207.imageshack.us/img207/6586/imga1614pv0.th.jpg] (http://img207.imageshack.us/my.php?image=imga1614pv0.jpg) [img=http://img207.imageshack.us/img207/2285/imga1618dp9.th.jpg] (http://img207.imageshack.us/my.php?image=imga1618dp9.jpg) The claws'll have to be done later, as with the rocket arm.

If anyone has any suggestions for how to make the rocket nosecone, please feel free to post. All other suggestions/comments accepted. :)

I know you may think people are hanging on your every word here, but for the sake of not abusing them, can we please use spoiler tags only for what they are intended to be used for? We'd appreciate it greatly, thanks :)

By the way, how tall is he? I'm not familiar with the base figure you're using (though I'm guessing the standard 6").

Treadshot A1
2009-01-19, 02:05 AM
And i'm not familiar with Imperial measurements. :lol:

Let's see... *gets ruler* 8 inches head to toe, 9 inches if you count the tracks. Basically very similar to MP Screamer in height counting the tracks.

Sorry bout the tags, i couldn't resist. :)

Since i've just finished a Light tent, i thought i might as well give it a go. Plus, i finally got the hang of photo editing (that's right, none of my previous photos were modified).

Please tell me what you think. I'd love some feedback. :up:

For use with Mode 1 Omega Supreme.

This is his new gun, which i just finished. I call it the Omega Force Gun, taking it's name from part of Energon Omega Supreme.

Here it is. Enjoy!

Someof you may have heard that i got my hands on a Legends onslaught. Well, this is what it's become. Taking his name from the small 'headmaster-like' unit of Energon Omega Supreme (according to the tfwiki), Omega is a small robot partner to Omega Supreme, and acts as a tank for Omega's third mode.

Yes, Omega's third mode is going to be his Rocket Base. Obviously. :)

Here is Omega! Enjoy!

I've been having a bit of a problem with some stiff joints, but i'll try and get some.

Oh, and i've actually Updated Omega's pics more over at TFW if you're interested. :) http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/216035-wip-project-omega.html

Which will be revealed when i make a second arm/hand for him.

I've finally made the claw i wanted (well, sorta; it didn't turn out the way i hoped). I took a cone spinner thingy from a model plane, and the models original leg thrusters, and got to work.

Don't ask me why it's cone shaped; when i think of Animated OS, i always think of cone shaped arms, for some reason. Me just a little http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/images/smilies/crazy.gif i suppose.

I know it looks kinda stupid, but when the blaster arm's done (out of the same spinner cone thing), you'll see why. I had to remove some armor from his wrist to get it to work; will fix that soon. Hopefully.

Looks: Weird
Attaches: Easily
Claws: Too short
Another case of : Either love it or hate it http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/images/smilies/laugh.gif

If anyone can guess why it's cone shaped, they get a...a...something.

The arms have dried, now waiting on the claw arm.

Meanwhile, i managed to mod the wrist armor, so that there was more space between the hand and the lower arm, just enough to fit the back plate of the claw arm on (using the post of the ball joint). This allows me to use the ball jointed hand to secure the claw arm in place, with the original hand hidden inside.

Treadshot A1

...I managed to get a second spinner cone for his other arm. Had to resort to using an Aluminium one though, plastic ones weren't available.

Unfortunately, my magnet supply has disappeared, so i'll have to wait till more come before starting work. However, at least i can finally reveal why i used the spinner cone thingy.

Omega's rocket! Albeit a bit more egg shaped than the original...

P.S. Have decided to scrap the alt mode. Just to complicated for a novice like me.
