    I posted my impression of Unicron in the thread in the news section, here I'll post some pictures I took of him. Full disclaimer: there are no cats.

    I wanted to also take a picture of him next to Fortress Maximus but I don't have enough space, maybe in the future.

    Yeah I hit the teeth with one of those silver paint-marker pens, think it turned out ok, and easy enough to touch up :)

    I feel like I haven't seen a lot of these pics. It was all the range with Armada Unicron! Have you all grown up??

    Thanks!
    Working on the design for a Scourge/ Andras flight display riser. X-Transbots MX-II Andras (Scourge) I'm currently tweaking the altmode flight display. (I didn't like the stock one)

    Well the internal kit is done and I’m printing these up now. The wings I’m working on next and have a plane I think you’ll be quite happy with based on everyone’s input.

    that is a really awesome idea actually! Very nice!!

    Awesome plans for Unicron I see. I like the small scale figure but I would rather have more of the microscale figures already supplied by Hasbro.

    Just wanted to give a huge shoutout to DJJETSTORM who has helped with our original design of the Unicron Upgrade kit. With our collaboration I think we have come up with an amazing new version together that is much more stable and detailed and his back plate spikes design is amazing and well worth purchasing from him. I will be putting the new version up soon on Thingiverse and Cults3D to download free and anyone without a 3D printer can purchase the whole kit from Djjetstorm.

    clips didnt seem needed as the back plate extends enough that the spike flap will sit inside and should not pop out
