The lights are on
Fans of the recent Transformers game will be excited about the official release of a new super-sized character from the story.
Longtime fans of Transformers don’t need to be introduced to Omega Supreme, whose hulking presence helps the Autobots hold the line against the villainous Decepticons.
Though Omega Supreme figured prominently in War for Cybertron, he didn’t appear in Fall of Cybertron, which can maybe help to explain how he looks a little different. You can also chalk up the change to the fact that this new figure is a remodel of an earlier Omega Supreme figure from years ago, now with a different head sculpt and other altered features, like his cannon arm.
The Platinum Edition Year of the Snake Omega Supreme (the full title of the new toy) is on its way later this month as an exclusive to Amazon as well as online toy retailer Big Bad Toy Store. Because it’s an exclusive targeted primarily at collectors, and not headed to mass retail, the big guy has a hefty price tag attached – Big Bad Toy Store has the figure listed for $99.
Is he worth the price? Take a look at two images of the final toy that Hasbro sent our way, and decide for yourself. Alternately, take a look back at this custom Omega Supreme toy we posted about a few years back, which carried the even more hefty price tag on eBay of around $3,000.

thats not a bad price considering its fully transformable
I remember the Omega Supreme mold because I still have the Energon version Omega. That's why he looks different.
now that is seriously amazing!!!! would totally want
Lucky for me, I still have enough G1 figures that my son has a chance to experience. They just don't make them like they used to.
Reminds me of my childhood in the 80's. Man, those were the days......
I remember my cousin had this, and was always jealous. Ever time I'd go over his house for Thanksgiving, I'd always play with it and try to figure out how to transform it.
I still need to get this for the Xbox.
I'm going to sell everything I own in order to buy that 3,000 toy.
I actually have the energon mold that this figure is based off of. Good thing I picked it up then, it sells for a lot now
I still think this game was very unappreciated. One of my favorites from 2012! And this toy is awesome!
Again my wallet is crying because of the weight it is about to lose.
My childhood persona inside me wants to get this....
