    Looking forward to this big boy. Here are my in-person pics from SDCC and NYCC.

    Ahh, thank you! It was getting a little intense over in the news thread arguing and uh, talking about real estate lol.

    Anyway, I’m so excited for this figure! I’m basically the biggest TF fan I know (in person) but I have friends that like and appreciate the brand and Unicron, so I’m thinking about kind of “touring” the figure when it comes out or at least have a sort of unveiling party so that friends can come over and see this beast in person. I feel like the more people that can enjoy it would help the sting of the cost. I can’t wait!!

    Tried telling Primus.... he isn’t happy.

    (also realizing I’ll need a significantly larger picture area in a year.....)

    So now will Primus scale right as to being a planet being devoured?

    think he should be, though he would definitely still be too big to fit in the maw.

    I need to start seriously thinking about the kind of case I'm going to put him in. 30 inch diameter is what jacks it up.

    On the floor for me, and he will probably ‘follow’ me around the house for at least the first couple weeks, as I’ll want to stare at him without having to sit downstairs every time hahahah.

    It’ll be interesting to see how long this positivity thread goes considering we’ll be chumming it up until 2021
    I backed through ToyDojo after somethings came up preventing me from backing directly through Haslab. ToyDojo send us a confirmation as well which was nice to get. I really didn’t want to feel left out just because I could no longer purchase directly through Haslab.
    I am soooo excited for Unicron!!!!!!

    This is my second crowdfund but this is the longest I've waited for something to be created! Gotta say, I'm pretty stoked about this! I'm excited for the transformation and I'm excited for the mini stand as well. I like the idea that if I want to have him in his planet mode that I can still display his head. :) 

    Still kinda wish they could add in some vocals somewhere. Even if just adding something to the stand. That'd be a nice surprise. I won't get my hopes up as I know they said no electronics. (But but but.... you had extra backers, you could figure something out) *Here's hoping*

    More photo dump from my NYCC trip. Planet mode. Pretty neat how the crust can alternate between the blue and gray colors seen in the movie depending on the lighting / angle.
