    I'm curious, and even though I know I'm not getting a definite answer, has everybody who ordered through Pulse gotten their Unicrons?

    Received my Unicron late April and I still look at it with excitement every time I walk by it in the display.
    Wanted to ask what people thought about the dekibble look.

    I was excited at the idea of being able to dekibble Unicron and basically get both planet and robot from one purchase! However the more I look at pictures of the dekibbled robot, there's just something that's missing. I feel that the extra shell pieces really add to Unicron's presence. What do you think?!

    I totally feel you there and why one of the things I'm working on are parts for the legs and back to complete him. Gotta finish the wings first.

    Every time I see this I'm so sad they closed pre-orders during COVID when I was poor.

    Still waiting to receive mine. I got an email saying that they’ve shipped, but haven’t yet received them. I plan on starting on it as soon as I do though.

    just received mine, wondering if anyone knew what the "upgraded" label was referring to?

    Transformed Unicron to stick some Toyhax labels on his maw. I like them, they break up his maw nicely, but, and I’m sure I’ve complained about this in another thread, but I do wish Toyhax would include printed instructions instead of the big “Toyhax” logos and color guides that they stuff in their envelopes, at least for multi sheet sets like this one.

    And a bit of fun…

    Looks great! How long did it take you to apply all of the stickers? I just got mine in today, and am planning on starting on it when I get home from work, in the morning.

    It took me about two and a half hours, counting interruptions. The teeth stickers are a bit fragile so be careful with those.

    Took me quite a while to put the Toy Hax labels on the maw, but overall, I’m pretty pleased with it. I’ve actually added a few more since taking this picture, and there are a few that I haven’t decided whether I’m going to add them or not. I’m still on the fence about using the gap fillers for the teeth. I’m actually pretty pleased with it, as it currently is, and I’m also wondering if down the line, a third party company might come up with some plastic pieces to fill in the teeth, so I think I’ll hold off for now.
