    HOLY CRAP!!!!! $600!!!! :(  Would have cancel all my pre orders for the rest of the year. Tough decision, buy figures that actually do something or a glorified light bulb( a really cool looking light bulb tho). Sorry Unicron, im happy with my armarda figure.

    I'm gonna shove an LED up my Anniversary Unicrons ass and call it a day!

    I'll sell it to you for $350!

    But in all seriousness, its a damned shame its $600.............. I would be all over that if it was a lot less. I've dropped some serious cash on a few figures, but its a damned lamp....

    While I do understand that going from Generations-Masterpiece figures to this in price is a huge step, as someone who collects high end statues, this is a pretty fair price for a statue of this size and detail, with all the light up features.

    The term "lamp" does seem a bit misleading but maybe that's how they're able to get the license? Im definitely planning on adding it to my. Ollie toon as long as it's not a hassle to get one.

    Only 600 ? Fantastic, I'll take 4 of them. Oh wait, 600 dollars, not yen? OK, guess this is another cool thing I'll enjoy vicariously like swedish swimsuit models.

    Price is $800 at bigbadtoystore... eek. $200 non refundable deposit.

    First statue that I know of made by this company plus those pics are really dark. Seems risky to pre-order.

    I'm a Unicron nut so I will get this but I'm hoping eBay saves the day and has a few listings under BBTS's price......and a flash sale wouldn't hurt either, lol! Holy balls, did anyone get a load of that shipping weight? 112lbs! No free shipping means I need somewhere else to order from.

    This has been a topic of debate since it was first shown. Could it be something as dumb as Soldier Story saying, "well, he's a big evil guy the Autobots are fighting so he must be a Deception"? Who knows, its dumb but it doesn't bother me as much as it does others, as long as the symbol's not on Unicron himself, I'm OK with it.

    It's nice but I'll stick with my Hard Heroes statue. $800 is bordering on "I really don't want to be married anymore" territory.

    I can sympathize. My wife is very cool about my collection and encourages me to get the rest (within reason). She can name the bots on sight and can do the Universal Greeting...she's cool like that.

    That said, I don't want to say "I'd really like this $800 lamp" to her. I could probably get away with it if I pushed it but honestly, it's just too much money for me anyhow to even sleep well at night knowing I spent that much on it, let alone getting a "What are you high or just stupid?" look from her if I did.

    Even though Unicron is not a decepticon, he still wants the autobot matrix destroyed, it being the only thing that can stop him. And he branded Galv/Cyc/Scourge with decepticon logos, even though they now 'belong to him'.

    And Unicron influenced the Fallen/Megatronus into becoming the first decepticon. With Unicron being as involved with decepticons as he has, he might as well have the emblem on his stand.
