Project Genesis is a to-scale homage of Transformers War for Cybertron's version of Omega Supreme


I'm sure we've all heard the saying "if you want something done right you have to do it yourself". That's an adage that third party Transformers groups live by. They make the figures and parts that Hasbro and Takara Tomy either can't or wont make. Sometimes it's because the character just wouldn't be popular enough to sell at retail. Other times it's because today's safety standards are just to preventative to make it possible. And sometimes it's because the figure would just be too freakishly big to try and make. The later is certainly true when it comes to Planet X's homage to the Transformers: War for Cybertron version of Omega Supreme: Project Genesis!

This isn't just any homage either, this is a version being made to the same scale as Hasbro's own figures. A forearm alone would be considered Voyager scale, towering over Fall of Cybertron Optimus Prime and grasping Bruticus (a big bot in its own right) like he's nothing. Those are some epic proportions right there. There's no word on exactly how big the completed figure is, but he certainly looks like he's approaching Fortress Maximus proportions.

Size isn't his only asset. He's also fully articulated and capable of transforming into a space ship! He also has a light-up feature. Special push button LEDs are spread out at to five points in the arms, legs, and chest. I'm guessing we haven't seen everything yet, I'm sure they've at least got some special planned for his head since a simple window just wouldn't be enough. No specifics on when or how much, though some are projecting a release in early 2013 at around US$300. Worth it? Maybe! Planet X is making weekly updates on Project Genesis so we should be getting more details soon enough.
