    Unicron's alt mode has a giant Unicron face on the top.

    What the fuck?

    and yeah, my fears confirmed. The backs of his lower arms are completely flat. They need to be combined together if you want to fix that, leaving him missing half of one arm. So then the micron becomes the missing arm part. No proper arms, "wad" arms are flat on one side, and he has no hands. Combined mode has him staring at the chest of Optimus or Megatron.

    Honestly, he's pretty stupid. but I still want him.

    I suspect the altmode is actually when he formed his face from the canyon wall.

    Looking at his elbows, that shot of him with the Micron as his arm with his arms bent is likely as far as the arms bend, since the hinge is contained on the detachable lower arm pieces instead of his actual arm. There's not enough clearance on the hinge to let it bend any further.

    I like that Unicron's alt mode has a bigger version of his face on it, and that he seems to have minimal stickers. (It looks like just his toes, crotchplate, faction symbols, and those weird tech details on his insides.)

    Unicron looks absolutely horrible, and yet almost wonderful. the colours and placement of the chrome almost reminds me of a Japanese Beast Wars figure. A Beast Wars figure that got dressed in the dark and had totally useless fucking arms. If it weren't for the fact that I actually hate Prime Unicron I'd be all over it.

    The combined mode's crotch plate is the center piece of Unicron's giant face. His nose is literally right against Optimus and Megatron's crotch. While his normal face stares at them from their chests.

    It's like they tried to make the combination as awkward as they could.

    That Unicron is freakishly colored, bizarrely designed, inexplicably a combiner, AND I LOVE IT. Something about me just gets super excited when Transformers designs get this weird. I'm biting my finger just looking at this thing. If a little more money ends up rolling my way this might be the first toy I ever import.

    Sooooo....both Ops and Megs can wear Unicron? What, like he is the ultimate bling accessory?? Ugh...I can see S3 of TF: Prime. "Battle for the Dark Blingeron"

    Not really diggin the shiny Decepticon purple all over Ironhide's abs. Its very distracting!

    Unicron looks like a mix of equal parts awesome and terrible. I'm very conflicted right now.

    Ironhide needs the dual cannons Kup got. 1 Micron ain't cuttin' it.

    Unicron is really bad looking. The color scheme is an eye sore. And of course, it aint Takara if it doesn't have random assed chrome/shiny stuff. I'd also prefer if he had hands instead of mace club thingies. Kinda like how is alt mode is a giant face though.

    Again, I'd buy Ironhide, but if he was $10-$15 and not the $30+ it takes to import.

    I like the looks of Unicron, but I'm not feeling those combined modes at all.
