    Awesome review, definately looks like Unicron, though he's a bit too expensive

    definitely:D  How big is this guy next to Predaking or Devastator with the Crazy Devy pieces? I never had him before and was just curious as to how big this figure exactly is

    LMAO!!! "LAtolongofaname"....well played sir :p 

    But yeah he's listed as cheaper..at least via toyarena.com he is. I haven't bothered looking at other places. And you'll have plenty of time to save for Christmas and Roddy...Primus is set to release at the end of October i think lol

    I'm getting one because it's G1 Unicron, but I don't agree on the fantasticness of the deco. It's only grey and orange, it's a bit... boring? The previous 2 decos were more spectacular imo.

    Fair point. I however would say that each version in it's own right are spectacular. Depending on what show you're watching Unicron from that is. I would argue this new version is as spectacular because of it's accuracy to how he looked in the G1 movie and cartoons. The other versions too have a spectacular look when compared to their respective cartoon counterparts...

    As a kid that grew up and saw the movie when it was brand new....Unicrons face always was burned into my memory. Now looking at this figure, with that face..FINALLY...just really puts me back as a child. I love it!! I'm GLAD my enthusiasm came across well :)

    Not this time around, but I'll be getting it within the month or so... I just have so many things I want at the moment that it's been tough figuring out what I want first.

    No matter what, I'll see you on Sunday. :thumb
