    im starting a boycott agenst hasbro due to them killing zetas core star . i could never afford the haslabs 600$ paper weight and the way they did it was kinda rong . i relise that there is an IP isshue but zeta had waited till the haslabs was going to be done the 1st time before they extended it so they were not steping on there toes .
    hasbro is scared that they are going to fail there backer amount due to theres being slightly inferior to zetas in my opinion.
    zeta was my only chance at getting a unicron so im extreamly upset at this
    im actuly going to cancel all my preorders of all there stuff threw hasbro i have placed of there products

    Dude, they didn't kill it, they just took down the post till Haslab is done, the same thing happen with MP-08 and FT Grim. It will be back soon, and it is up for preorder at a good amount of places, your overreacting, @nobody1898 is right. Your hurting other fans.

    Relax.

    Please go to their headquarter and show your dismay. I'm sure they absolutely care about you wanting to buy a 3rd party product because you can't afford their own :lol

    I see your boycott of dictionary use has been extremely effective.

    Hasbro’s actually been pretty cool And hands off with 3P so far. Just let the heat die down, let people have their Hasbro Unicron and then Zeta will be back later when the coast is clear

    Personally, I'm not a fan that Zeta was impacted by all of this. But it's Hasbro's legal right to protect their IP. Hopefully we'll see the "Zeta" design pop up later in the year. I was never going to be ordering the Haslab Unicron, so therefore, there is nothing for this collector to cancel or boycott. I'm also sad to see that this potentially happened with Toyworld's Freedom Leader. But that is the same thing for me, I just hope it happens at some point, because the big losers in all of this stuff are the fans.

    Yeah, and nice to them as well, When Fanstoys Grimlock was coming out, Hasbro just told FT to change the head sculpt a bit from MP-08, they are chill with 3P when you don't step on there toes.

    Well in hindsight this is kinda expected, don't know what makes Zeta think it's a good idea to announce their Unicorn before the Kickstarter even ends.

    You're just mad and acting like a child. They let 3rd party companies run wild (I'm pro-KO) which is fine but I would get very upset too if I was making something very expensive and was relying on the fans to get a product made an a different company runs off my steam to create a figure that is better than mine in some ways. I'm on Hasbro's side here.

    Well, i already havent bought a Hasblo shit in years, so... i guess i can join this quest of yours ;) 

    As for Takara, hmm, until they drop their price back to normal (i guess never), i am on this quest for them too... or at least for 2019, maybe even 2020, but no guarantees there, or for 2021, as i am sort of a fikled fan :p
