    I like that Unicron more than the Armada one they released. This one has a more powerful look to him.

    Me, too. I suppose the line didn't sell well enough for Takara to go ahead with the figure?

    Surely the fan demand means that I will be used one day, I'd love it as a Universe Figure

    Yeah, that's why I like him too. I always thought he had a kinda Viking thing going for him.

    My understanding was that Neo performed so poorly that Takara decided to try their own reboot back to Car Robots. That was also a huge flop so they took a break from Transformers with Web Diver, which also did not succeed and then worked with Hasbro on Armada and its sequels.

    The fact that BW Neo didn't sell well helped me a lot with collecting the line as I started late, though I wonder what Takara was thinking at that time selling such complicated toys.
