    I am not so certain that there will be a "better" box. The second box shown for the sail barge is a fairly standard shipper for all Hasbro products. Yes, it's shaped to fit the sail barge but the information is that found on boxes headed to WalMart.

    This Unicron box shown isn't that at all. Of course, I don't care about there being a "better" box. All figures could come in brown paper boxes if it saved me money.

    Well said Tig. I have been away from this thread since the last update. Today's email made me laugh. It was a wonderful distraction from things. To Hasbro: thanks! Fun! We need that right now.

    For the packaging, that was actually more than I was expecting lol.

    I don't think it will, unfortunately..
    Why else would they design the box with those handles on the sides? Looks like a shipping box to me.
    Def hurts resale value for those who bought more than one...

    Nah, it'll have an outer shipper. Probably be a snug fit, though, so it still won't protect the box if the handlers get unnecessarily rough with it and start punching holes in it.

    Unicron will probably ship in a standard Hasbro box as well. I'm 99% sure the "Generations Select" style box is the display "retail" box. The actually mailer will be the plain brown cardboard/purple Hasbro print box. Hasbro isn't going to be risky with this. Holes in the side of the Generations style box is just so you can move it around once it's out of the mailer. It's a heavy, odd sized box!

    The box is slot smaller than I expected, which is great.

    dude is so big he ought to be paying rent! that is so cool the way theyve got him in a home setting.. so you can get a feel for how gargantuan he really is. love the cat photo.

    kudos to those that plopped down the money for this unicron. it wasnt in my budget, but I am happy for those that were able to obtain the preorder. cant wait to see this guy in the appreciation threads.

    Unicron: Kittah Tested. Kittah Approved :thumb 

    What I'd rather have is a poster done up in the style of the art on the back of the old G1 packaging with Unicron being swarmed by all the Autobots & Decepticons from the movie, complete with Unicron Tech Spec and Robot points at the bottom.

    1,000% agree

    Unicron will be shipped in planet mode, which is probably good, as transforming from planet mode to bot mode, seems to be the easier/faster, more complete transformation.

    Yeah, this would have been way too big for me to own. Still really cool to see it come together!

    Maybe. It’s a Schrödinger’s cat, so you won’t know for sure ‘til you open the box.

    Generally around 100 bucks for the Armada Unicron itself unless you go for one of the more expensive newer versions like platinum or of light or energon, Then you probably have to ship it to the person who’s gonna paint it so probably about 20 bucks and then another 20 to have it sent back plus the cost of having it painted let’s ball park at 30 to 50 basically around 200 bucks

    Do my eyes deceive me or did they get a separate piece for the damaged eyes? :)
