I like it. Kind of a blend between old and new. How is the pose-ability?

Pretty Poseable.  2x Feet, 2xLegs, Hips, Torso, Head, 2xArms, 2x Jump Jets, 6x Heat Sinks (1 Extra in case you drop one :D).  I originally had the feet and legs as one, but had to break them up for molding purposes.

OK cool Stinger...thanks for the breakdown. We're there any extra variant parts, or are you unable to say?

Yeah...the twins are really testing the limits of insanity brought on by sleep deprivation.

Alt A is going to be sold separately as an online exclusive, but I can't share as it is still awaiting an BT code.   The main blister is the Prime/C, with the main difference between the two being the jump jets.

And best of luck with your little monsters my friend!

Let me just say both 'Oooooo!' and 'Aaaaaah!' I was 90% sure I would end up buying at least one of the omni centurions (well, most of the current crop of releases actually), but I wanted to wait and see the final product first. I like what you did with it, as the TRO art just felt a little chubby to me compared to the non-omni Centurion. I can see how most of it just got taller, but it looks like the waist/hip area is a fair bit different. Much less of an apron/genital-shield type of look than the TRO. Not saying it is good or bad, just different.

Oh, and thanks for the extra heat-sink. I still hate them and will glue at least three solidly to my fingers instead of the arm, but I can't argue that they are neat details once they are on!

So, if you actually had the apron as it was in the TRO art, the legs couldn't be posed. 

Fun fact: Brent Evans mentioned that the original hip plate on the original dark age mini was upside down and went into production like that anyways.  That idiosyncrasy was transferred to the TRO art, and only finally fixed right here.

Indeed. Bonus points if one can use these legs, instead of the crap existing legs, on the Templar ...

...6x Heat Sinks...

Oh good, so I can leave them right the hell off. ;D

I mean no offense, but those are my least-favorite aspect of the MWDA style.

Haha, totally get that. I tried to leave them off myself, but that got shot down incredibly quick. The holes should be super easy to fill.

Yup, a little superglue or green stuff should do the job.

I figured that was the reason. Although, the idea of a mech taking tiny little baby-steps so it doesn't rip it's own armor apart is amusing!

So, are you doing the Templar III as well? I only ask because I WANT IT BADLY!!!!

Templar III is actually already done and likely molded.  It was done by B3 (the fan finance guy).  It looks awesome. Spot on to IAMCLANWOLF's orthos.

I am not a Davion fan. However that Orthos looks pretty good, combined with that statement from you, it sounds like Davion fans are about to be very lucky.
Congratulations Davion fans O0

For all of you ordering Centurions, if you could PM me after you assemble it, I would love some feedback.  What was good, what was bad, could it use more detail, parts are gluing well, anything! It'll help me make better minis in the future!

Any updates on the web-only releases for this year? It looks like the Q1 and Q2 general releases are all out now, but so far the only web release has been the Rifleman III. It's a pretty cool sculpt, but The Vulture III and the Thor II variants are really more my style!

Legs are two pieces so you can have more movement in them. Overall it is very nice mini.

i assembled the centurion omni today and did not feel the urge to commit homicide. the shoulder studs went into place far more easily than i had anticipated

At first glance, the Omniturion A looks like it's got a mouth full of fangs in the middle of it's chest.
