    I would be intrested in purchusing it from the owner who currently owns either one of the 1986 g1 unicron hasbro voice activated prototypes that were displayed at botcon years back
    i wounder what the price would be an if the owners would sell them

    The price would probably be VERY high (Thousands? More?). And they probably wouldnt want to part with them anyway.

    Probably much more. And more than likely, they won't want to part with them.

    Also, you should have asked this in the TF Toy Discussion forum.

    If one ever did go up for auction, I wouldn't be surprised if it went over 10k. There are a lot of people who really want the thing.

    the hasbro g1 prototype was the same as the takara G1 prototype except takaras original g1 prototype unicron was green an yellow hasbros was blue an yellow an both prototypes had a microphone the owners could talk through thats a sick feature i give up all never get unicron i can only dream of owning that prototype unless someone decides to put it up on ebya which is doubtful

    If it is in private hands, it'll never go to open auction, I think. Far more likely it will be sold in private between the big collectors because something like that, you're going to want to sell to someone who you know will look after it properly. You're going to be looking at massive costs, too.

    Sorry can't post pics without owner's consent. But know that you are looking at something like 11k USD. this is not speculation. That is a serious figure. There are more than one of the blue and yellow prototype.

    I'm curious as to what's wrong with the Armada/Energon/Universe ones? Other than the rarity of the original concept/prototype, it was crap. You can pick up a new Universe one for $50 on ebay or TRU:

    Seems a little odd that you state you have nothing for your collection count, and yet you want a custom made or original prototype of G1 Unicron. Maybe eccentric is a better word?

    It'll be probably costs more than what you can have from your salary in five years.

    Ebay:
    Does anyone even privately own one of these? As far as I know only Hasbro and Takara have them. The one displayed at Botcon wasn't even fully transformed because they were afraid of it breaking. The couple photos that are floating around of it that are fully transformed have been photoshoped.

    Much as I hate to say it (considering I'll probably NEVER own it), it's one of my grails. Maybe one day, I'll become some kind of crazy millionaire...
