Why is Omega Supreme still one of the most popular, most desirable collectible Transformers? Is it because he was the biggest Transformer ever when he was first rolled out into the toy stores? Is it because he was the first TF with motorized walking? Is it because he explodes apart into twenty bazillion pieces and reassembles again whenever you transform him? Is it because of the cool-looking clawed arm?
Probably a little of all of these, plus the look of the guy. With his claw and laser-gun arms, winged backpack, faceless head, and enormous legs, he looked nothing like any other TF produced before or since. He looks big, no question about it. If you wanted an Autobot to stomp your Decepticons into the plush carpet for good, this was the guy.
Omega Supreme got a decent amount of coverage in the cartoon, although his size prevented him from accompanying the other Autobots on most missions. They usually tapped him for trips to Cybertron, which probably would have led to more resentment on his part if he didn't have such a "Where do you want to go today?" sort of personality. According to the cartoon, he was derived from the guardian robots used by the Quintessons and later by the first Autobots for combat.
Like Sky Lynx later, Omega Supreme was licensed from the Japanese company Toybox, not Takara like most Transformers. His original name was "Super Change Robo Mechabot-1". I think we're all glad Hasbro changed it.
