    Ok ok... I just by accident came across a really old Neo Beastwar prototype which sadly never made it :(  such a shame... BUT!!

    would you like a (instead of voyager sized it supposedly should've been) want a leader/ultra-class???

    could we start a petition and ask Has/Tak to reconsider producing...
    even make it a masterpiece doesn't sound bad now does it?

    I'm happy with my Armada Unicron honestly (And possible, future purchase of the 2010 reissue)... Looks awesome, not denying, but that ship has sailed.

    I prefer the one we have.

    Forget the pointless petition. You'd get more results pissing on a tree.

    It's not as good as the Takara 2010 version (w/remolded head) IMO.

    Pass for me.

    No way. The 2010 version is about as fiction accurate as it gets.

    Oh look, it's another of those "Prototype that never went into production is a holy grail (but would probably be a shelfwarmer if it actually came out)" pipe dreams.

    IIRC this thing was supposed to be about Leader sized figure.

    I don't think many people would want it now any way as the 2010 Unicron is much better.

    Welcome to 1999 when we first saw this and everyone was drooling over it. :)  It'll never come out so don't lose any sleep over it.

    I thought the rumors were that this guy was actually like the old Ultra class or smaller.

    but any ways this proto was quite a shell former so im happy with the armada toy... Saying that I really wish their was a unicron who had this styling but the armada engineering

    While cool, it looks like a cross between a viking and a turtle. Might be neat for planet mode.

    I never got all the love for this figure. Sure our Unicron is barely a full sphere but this guy has half a sphere on his back.

    Sure he is nice but they one we got is just as good in different ways (especially the 2010 release)

    This is my third favorite Unicron mold. It's the Armada/2010, the Cybertron deluxe, then this.

    I'll never understnd the draw to Neocron. IMO it looks awful, even not taking into consideration half the planet is a turtle shell on its' back. I'll take Armada Unicron even WITH it's drawbacks to that thing any day.

    You're right. Thanks for the reminder.

    This Neo mold is actually my fourth-favorite, after the Armada, Cybertron and the G1.

    I like it more that the Titanium and Robot Heroes versions though.

    The ARMADA toy just leaves so, so much to be desired that I think this proto looks far superior.
