    It's a typo then. 1 lbs or nothing. It weighs basically nothing.

    Sorry for noob question. Haven’t had the chance to open mine yet. Can the stand be broken back into 2 pieces easily after assembled ? I’d like to set mine up to play around with but I am anticipating needing to Re-box it up for a future move.

    First pass. This is all physical, fog and colors done on camera, not photoshop. Was edited, and fudged a bit in Photoshop to clean things up afterwards tho. End result is similar to things done before - but remember how FN BIG this guy is and that's where the woah comes from, IMO.

    After a lot of soul searching the last few days I have decided I just dont have the room for this guy.

    So I've listed him for sale in my Junkion Exchange thread at what I think is a fair price considering the current market if anyone missed out and still needs him. Reasonable offers are welcomed!

    A question for people who removed the kibble: I know it is possible to assemble the kibble pieces into an almost complete planet mode, but how easy is to transform Unicron back in full planet mode using the kibble as separate partsforming pieces? Is the end result solid? Let me know if I wasn't clear enough in my request.

    I haven't (and don't plan to), but I think it could work. The main issue would be that the "hoop" of panels that goes around the top, front and bottom won't be attached at the top where the screw is, but I think even without that it should work.

    The ends of that hoop tab into the top and bottom edges of the arms on the back of the planet, and the front side of the hoop plugs into a block on the front of his waist. So it still has something to attach to on both the front and back, and the part it screws into on the top would still be there to help support the weight even if it's not attached. The four side panels are all primarily supported by the tabs along their edges, so them not being attached to their armatures won't really matter. So I think it would work, you'd just want to be extra careful while squishing all the side panels into place.

    Day 628:
    Still no notification on shipment or status. Loosing all hope of rescue. Please send Unicron.

    Supplies of patience are running low and moral is down. Thoughts of pitch forks and torches come ever more frequently and are not as easily subdued.

    Unsure if we can last yet another fortnight.

    Holy crap, I thought you were exaggerating so I did the math. You must have placed your order on or around day 5.

    I am definitely looking for a turntable for Unicron. I found what seems to be a suitable cheap one on Amazon for around $10.

    What I really need is a cheap 24" diameter circular platter to lay on top of the turntable. It needs to be that big in order to hold the stand itself.

    Anybody buy a cheap platter already or have any suggestions?

    You should be able to have a local woodworker provide you with one.

    They're a combination of Tamashii Stage Act.4 and Act.5 parts, along with some extensions that I designed and printed (the white pieces). I bought the Tamashii stands from Amazon.
