Though obviously I'm just talking first names, I'm not saying I'm better than James Stewart.

That is for other people to say.

Don't push it. Whatever about James Stewart, Patrick Stewart is down that path.

Why is Omega Supreme such an underwritten character?

Why isn't Galvatron as prominent in IDW as Megatron? And why hasn't he gotten a Masterpiece figure yet, while Megatron has?

Apart from that time that he took G1 Megatron's spark on board and technically was.

Yeah, BW Galvatron is an entirely separate character.

From RiD onwards that became pretty much standard, due to Takara loving their third-act power-up recolours and Hasbro having very little imagination on the naming front.

Isn't Galvatron a key protagonist in the comic formerly known as Robots In Disguise?

I'm sure he'll get an MP figure someday.

Omega Supreme isn't underwritten. His appearances in various TF media have been in keeping with his less than verbose personality. Do you mean why hasn't he got more exposure? Because if so, you could say that about 95% of all Transformers characters ever. Just be thankful you're not a Doublecross fan or something.

Because David Wise is running an illuminati conspiracy yo.

Because Furman isn't writing it anymore.
And why hasn't he gotten a Masterpiece figure yet, while Megatron has?
Beachcomber hasn't gotten a Masterpiece figure yet, but Slicer has. What's your point?

BLATANTLY NOT THAT'S MY POINT.

They're holding off on Galvatron because you save the best* till last.

Will we get a Masterpiece Omega Spreme?

I want IDW to give Omega his own Spotlight issue, not just be featured in someone else's.

I want him to be more of a central character and get more panel time.

I want Emma Stone to nip round for a cup of tea and a lifetime, but shit doesn't work that way.

I want David Wise to apologize for this:
David Wise, who wrote much of Omega Supreme's backstory in the original animated series, has described Omega Supreme as a "stupid character" which was based on a toy that was "completely illogical," and that as such he felt it would be amusing to give the character a complex past.[1]
Has he ever said he was sorry? Has he printed a retraction saying he misspoke? Will we ever get an apology from him?

It was actually his nearby Decepticon Counterpart who said that.

why should he apologise either? That's a legitimate criticism of the character - as outlined previously.
