    My bad, I have been off this discussion most of the day and just saw this and thought it was worth noting.

    All this Unicron talk made me rewatch the movie just now. Just as when I was a Child, I still can't get passed this:

    Ultra Magnus blown to scrap and dead....
    "JUST TAKE THE REST OF THE DAMN DEAD AUTOBOTS TO THE JUNKIONS!!!"

    This scene effectively removed any type of remorse I could have felt as a child for the Characters, their logic caused to much of a headache for me.

    Also ended up making me into a sociopath equivalent to Patrick Bateman.

    No bad to be had I didn't mean it in a negative way sorry bout that. Now we're all just wondering if it's true or some funky counter glitch.

    He'd been dead for a very brief time, allowing them to resuscitate him.

    I zipped into EB Games this afternoon, mere minutes after the HasLab clock ran down to zero, and made my first weekly payment. :) 

    I figure, after putting down AU$200 cash down as a deposit on two Unicrons, I'll pay $25 every week and have both those bad boys paid off in plenty of time before they arrive.

    I love how Hasbro Australia have handled this!
    I most certainly would not have bought into this whole Unicron project if my local branch of Hasbro had not made Unicron so accessible for collectors.

    Aw, that's really unfortunate. I'm not getting it, but I was hoping for something along the lines of the other titan class boxes at the least.

    That's because of a script change. Originally, Ultra Magnus was supposed to have been drawn-and-quartered by the Sweeps. It wasn't going to be fatal, because robot. But the visuals of that were too violent, so he got caught in a simple explosion instead. The rest of the movie script thereafter remained relatively unchanged, though, which creates the inconsistency.

    Augh would've been nice to have that option. I just ripped off the bandaid and paid directly to Hasbro. Now my wallet's bleeding.

    Regardless, that Arcee remains one of the pieces I wish I owned. But even just a few years after they made her she was already too rich for me. I did snag the Tigatron from that year, though.

    Currently saying 283% funded. That's just over 22.5k total. If this was the total etailers orders, i.e. some 10k+, then the extension was a farce. There's no way the BBTS et al. orders would more than double because of the extension. This means they had 5k already in the bank but off the ticker. Plus the 5k on Pulse.

    If the 283% is legit, and not some shitty maths, then I reckon this genuinely funded worldwide first-time. The extension mainly allowed the US market to double.

    Hey, they can do what they want, but it seems clear that the 8k was exceeded probably on 29th August when they extended (so no etailers orders went on). That's a bit shifty, but it's business.

    I really don't know what he's angling at.

    A while ago when he first came into this thread, he was acting all innocent and asking questions like "what is the appeal of this character?" and such, as if he was actually curious but ill informed. Fair enough. But then after that, I noted that he was frequenting the ZetaToys thread and enthusiastically cheerleading for them, all the while coming back here and continuing his dumb/innocent act.

    I just mentally ignored him from that point onwards, because there's no dealing with that kind of crazy.

    Well maybe the extension happened to give the retailers more time. Whatever, it worked out great for everyone,
