I was very surprised when I saw the new omnitrix's design before the omniverse series aired. The green hourglass symbol was the icon for the show since 2006 and I was afraid it was gone for good. (I was puzzled and relieved when they showed that the thing at the top was actually just a lid instead of being the new control)
I can't really complain much anymore because I'm still watching the show.
I have to admit, they are coming up with such good stories that the designs seems to bother me less, the voice actors really gave back that familiarity and then the good animating itself still made the show enjoyable
Wow, that is pretty cool, I can't believe that Azumath was so concerned about fashion too although I also can't imagine Ben actually not wearing any green, white or black combinations. (Seriously, his old clothes, his current soccer uniform and the plumber suit have black, white and green! Unless if another villain happens to get their hands on the omnitrix again)
It defiantly is a different and a fresh design but I feel like I will miss the original circular design a bit. (and how will he be able to go through the holograms and punch in the alien to transform? : )
