Requires two AA batteries
"Transformers, robots in disguise," is an understatement when it comes to this Autobot. My seven- year-old who is crazy about Transformers, says "this is the ultimate Transformer!" The Energon Omega Supreme stands 16 inches in robot form.
Like all Transformers, the robot converts into something else. This time however, you get twice the action, because the Omega Supreme becomes 2 vehicles, a "Construction Vehicle" and a "Cruiser". When put together in yet another arrangement these 2 vehicles can be combined to form a "Cybertronian Armored Supetrain".
The head of the Omega Supreme is removable and I believe referred to as a "Mini-Con" figure. This mini robot can ride in the cockpit of the construction vehicle. And as if that weren't enough there is also a lunging grip, a light up plasma blaster, and firing cruise missiles.
My son loves the lights and sound, as well as the other mechanized features of this Transformer. It offers so many options for action-packed play that he will play for hours. The best part though is that because this Transformer becomes two vehicles, he and his brother can actually play together. They take turns being in control of the construction vehicle and the battleship-like cruiser. At any given point and depending on how many "Decepticons" they sense are nearby, they will unit their power and form either the supertrain or mighty robot.
As a parent it is wonderful to watch your children play together in harmony, but playing with one toy, that is remarkable!
