    Obviously that's Unicron, but are the colors different? Mines in storage, I haven't seen it in a while..

    Wow. And today I was looking at my Takara Primus repaint, thinking I should hurry up and get the G1 style Takara Unicron. :lol  That is definitely a different version than Takara's. The light up hand is painted, it seems.

    Well, didn't Hasbro want to release a more "G1" Unicron for the Universe 2.0 TRU exclusive at one point? I assumed it was perhaps from that proposal.

    Yeah, I wonder if it'll lack electronics to keep cost down. It would be neat if they swapped in a voice box instead.

    Awesome, a Hasbro release. I'd love to get this if it's around the price of Armada Unicron

    I just compared this to the Japanese version and this one has some major differences.
    Unicron - Japanese Transformers - TFW2005

    Extra paint apps on the legs.
    The orange stripe on the chest is different. It's painted along the details, instead of being a straight line.
    The row of cylinders on his shoulders are painted red, instead of gray.
    The biggest change, and the one I know a bunch of people are going to love about this.
    HIS HAND IS NOT CLEAR PLASTIC!

    the little info box says its "unicron released for the 25th anniversary"

    i figured it meant the Takara repaint. Its got the same head

    i think maybe this pic is just one of those photos of a handpainted mock up [which tend to be more detailed and involved than the final "budgeted" retail version]

    they put that little "product may vary from pics" disclaimer on the package for this reason

    im sure if hasbro was gonna release him wed've heard about it by now. doesnt really make much sense what with the movie flooding everything for the rest of the year
    [and since the 25th anniversary was this year, 2011, wedve heard something by now. but it doesnt matter! Takara's Unicron came out in 2011 so. Mystery solved?]

    That may be down to a point what is going through everyone's mind who didn't get the Takara version

    I'm not going to assume that's anything other than a one-off.

    But IF it's NOT...I might just be stupid and get it. :D

    I really like the Takara 2010 repaint, but the blue on this just pops, its pretty beautiful.

    If this does come out, I'm totally buying it, as I don't yet have a Unicron.
