    Probably already a thread where this is being discussed, but, I'm debating on whether I should get the new Unicron or not. That head mold looks way more awesome and the paint job is better too. My only gripe is that his eyes are red which I'm sure is an easy fix. I already have the Universe re-release of Armada Unicron so it's kinda hard to justify the buy. Thoughts?

    I've been looking for a reasonably priced Armada Unicron for a couple of months... But seeing this one, I'll definitely be wanting to get a pre-order in for this bad boy!

    I put my Unicron back together to repaint in a more G1 style. But then news of this came out. Unicron is going back to being combiner kibble.

    Nobody cared about this figure when the Universe version hit. And now that it is repainted, people care? Wow.

    I'd really like to get it. If I can find it for a reasonable rice I probably will. I really like the new head sculpt.

    The Universe version was completely unchanged from his Armada version, which a lot of people already owned, so why would they care? But now it is changed, it's in colors that match his original movie appearance, which to old collectors, is more appealing than his Armada appearance.


    I'm not one of them, though. This toy is primarily orange. The Armada one I already have is primarily orange. Seems Unicrony enough to me!

    I've held out on Unicron for a while now. Think its time to cave in.

    I painted the eyes of my Armada Unicron green. It was pretty easy, just unscrew the head and remove the eyes, not sure if this version will be just as easy.

    It's nice, but Armada Unicron was the toy that got me collecting again. I'd never replace him.

    You could always display one (preferably the Armada version) in Planet/Nom Nom Death Star mode.
