In that case, sir, I hope you'll never buy one.

I mentioned a potential e-hobby repaint of Omega Supreme as a Guardian Robot way back when Sky Lynx was announced, and look what happened...
I think you'll find that was actually me.

I think I want that guy. Good that he has a waitor mode. Now does'nt Primus have to get his energon by himself anymore. He could also do a good job in combination of TFA Mixmaster and Scrapper as they don't have to search anymore for oil.

Eh. It was a no-brainer repaint. E-Hobby and/or Tak probably had it in might right off when they planned to reissue him.

It's kinda like when I was clamoring for a mirage repaint as Drag Strip, and Hasbro released it. It just makes sense. Maybe they saw one of my posts and said "Hey. That's a good idea." but it's more likely that a designer said "Hey those stunticon fellows seem to be pretty popular, and we already have a race car mold. Lets do him up as Drag Strip."

I never jumped on anyone.
I just mentioned that I was the first one on here to mention it.

WTF is a 'waiter mode'?

I assume it's a nod at the stupid "Madman's Paradise" episode.

Where is Megs Cannon? I mean two Katana swords??? Now he is never going to win anything when he's in battle with prime. I mean see for yourself:

Prime's alt: NISSAN GTR

Megs's alt: NISSAN Fairlady/350Z

Prime's weapon: (ion)blaster

Megs's weapons: Katana Swords

This is so unfair...

Prime would put down the gun and do it mano e mano. He's sentimental like that.

Loving the Grimlock! I've been coming on this site for a while just to read but that bad boy made me want to post.

Nah I don't think Prime would do it hand to hand because of tree things: 1 He can't trust Megs, 2 why would he waste so much time? 3 Without his gun Prime doesn't stand a fair chance against Megs because that guy still carries his Katana's. So if they would give prime his Axe and Megs an alt mode that has more chance to beat a NISSAN GTR and his arm cannon, i would say go for it.

By the way welcome newcomer.

Still not sure on the shoulders, but that really does look very good otherwise. It even looks like it's got a decent transformation...

It's amazing what difference the colours (and not displaying the waiter mode) make.
