Series: Generation 1
Allegiance: Autobot
Year: 1985

Unyielding resolve has no conqueror.
The ultimate defensive force. Great strength, even greater courage. Serious, even grim... last line of Autobot defense. Protects the Ark and all else vital to his cause. As robot, can shatter a mountainside, lift 300,000 tons with clawed arm, destroy 12' steel cube with plasma blaster arm... has head-mounted laser cannon. Can transform to laser cannon tank and launching pad with rocket. Rocket can achieve planetary orbit.

Robot Mode: A massive, powerful figure, Omega Supreme towers over all other Transformers made up until that point. His posability is actually quite good. His legs don't move, but his arms more than make up for that. The giant claw gives him a menacing air, adding to his powerful look. The tracks from the base mode form his wings. All in all, a great mode. The only flaw is that there is no face to be found underneath the red hood, as seen in the cartoon.

Alternate Mode: Omega doesn't so much transform, he falls into pieces and reassembles in a different way. I've heard him called the Lego Transformer and that is fitting. In his rocket base mode he kind of reminds me of a Matchbox playset, but in a good way. With the tank on the circular tracks and the rocket launcher in the centre it looks like a futuristic base, all set to be populated by Autobots.

Remarks: I've waited a long time for this Transformer, but when it finally got here it was worth it. One of the more enigmatic characters from the original G1 cartoon, Omega Supreme was a former Guardian Robot betrayed by his friends, the Constructions. The betrayal turned him into an emotionless, lethal fighting machine set on revenge.

The toy they made is very show accurate except for the fact that it hasn't got a face. Still, a very good toy in both modes, built at a scale that allowed one to reenact battles from the cartoon properly (he towered over both normal figures and Devastator). The only real drawback is that he is composed of so many parts that transforming him is quite a task and I dread the day that I lose some of them.
