    I don't have a ton of space left for display, and I already have the hasbro Unicron, but somehow I can't get the new Takara release out of my head, especially since its up again at TFSource. Will somebody please either talk me into it or talk me out of it?

    And it's is painted in new G1 colors.... And it has a new head. I'd say buy it. I'm pretty fur that if you change your mind on it you could resell it and make all of your money back..

    I already have the Armada version, and I just can't justify two Unicrons (too farking big). Otherwise, I'd have been all over it. The Armada version is close enough for me (its not like you're going to mistake him for somebody other than Unicron).

    I've pre-ordered Unicron and Primus, partly because I missed out on them first time around and I've always wanted them both, and partly because of the beautiful new paint apps and retooling they have.
    Besides, if I wanted to buy them off the secondary market nowadays I'd be paying almost what the new ones are going for now, so I figure the upgrades are worth a little extra cost.

    I really wanted both Unicron and Primus, but just couldn't justify the expense.

    I hope sometime in the future Hasbro will bring these over to the States, even if they're exclusives.

    If my local import shop gets a few and I have the cash to spare, I'll pick one up then.

    While I won't have the G1 head, I could always just repaint my Armada/Universe'08 Unicron if I felt like it.
