    Today's probably the most exciting day for me since I started collecting Transformers because I finally managed to put my hands on what I believe is at the same time the most laughed at and desirable Transformer ever: G1 Unicron prototype! I didn't want to talk about it until it was delivered this morning in case something bad happened. It took me almost a year of negociations with the seller (former Hasbro employee) as the price was quite steep (5 digits) as you can imagine but I finally ended up convincing him last week. You guys can't imagine how stoked I am right now. I'll post a review with tons of pictures and a video a bit later today, I got work to do first.

    On April 1st anything goes, really. Some jokes are just funnier (and less obvious) than others.

    Too lazy to finish my own April Fools. APRIL FAIL! :p 

    I meant to take a picture of the brown rolling rock that comes with the Devastator Showdown playset and pretend the original G1 Unicron was never meant to transform. :p

    Some Lucky draw goes up near the end of 4 digits price, so, no that's not a so surprising price for this piece, if it ever hit the secondary market, i assume the bids will take a high speed way to the sky
