    And I'm completely terrified to transform him. first of all, he looks amazing in robot mode, and I don't wanna screw up on a transformation step and pop off his head. Which I think just might happen. Because his head is kinda stiff. How do you like your Unicron?

    I think that's supposed to happen? (See TTM.) I don't have the figure though so I could be wrong...

    Even tho I don't have 2010 Uni I do have the next best thing an Armada version,and even tho his head is kinda stiff like you said Kaiwera I have yet to break the head off mine and I have transformed him hundreds of times.So I wouldn't worry after all he is "The Planet Eater".Later.

    It's an optional gimmick!

    Seriously though, he is an AMAZING figure! I've never transformed mine, but then again, I don't see the need to display a big ball of plastic on my shelf. The robot mode is far too badass to be hidden away.

    ^Yea, havent transformed mine either, finally Transformed the Armada reissue one after getting 2010 since the new one blows it out of the water. I looked at Primus sitting on clearance when I was just getting back into collecting saying "who the hell wants a transformer that turns into a ball". Three years later I am buy a $150 transformer that turns into a ball, go figure.

    If the head does pop off, you just have to get any version of ghost Starscream to reattach it. Treachery might occur.

    At the time I got him I was more impressed with him than any other transformer right out of the box. The look (head sculpt, paint job, rubbed finish, etc) were perfect. To this day, he remains the highest placed transformer in my house, standing over all of the other movie toys on top of a bookshelf (he is directly above the sig pic below).

    2010 Unicron is awesome!

    I never transformed into planet mode, but I did have a hell of a time folding his feet out when I took it out of the box. I guess there was a punch pin that was not flush against the feet. I had to force it out.

    It shaved a bit of plastic so it no longer gets stuck but man, I almost bricked myself when I thought I broke it. :redface2:

    Yeah I actually transformed him and he looks fraggin' amazing in both forms. I don't care for the lopsidedness of him in planet mode, so I'm probably gonna show him off in Robot Mode. So damn amazing.

    You should check to see if you have the proper teeth on the planet halves.

    What do you mean? There's teeth there if that's what you mean.

    Some versions of the "mouth" don't close properly as the teeth on both sides have the pointy bits aligned (one of them is the wrong piece, I assume)

    That's great news man, I was relieved to find mine had the right parts too. Apparently not as many folks were as lucky.

    Congrats on the haul man :)

    Some pics I took when I got mine back around Christmas. He's way too big for my light box, so I did what I could with what I had.
