    Come on man. Let's be real. The only TF toyline without gimmicks were the first 3 years. After 86, there were linewide gimmicks... EVERY toy was some kind of -master, pretender, etc. Then the only transforming ones were micromasters and the rest were action masters. Etc etc.

    Dude Its a very big f**king box. A big ugly f**king box. I dont have walk in closets, or garage space for this. And I dont have a hoarders house either. It makes any nicely furnished room look like crap. At least if it had a design, I could shove it in a corner of my display room. I throw a s**t load of boxes in the recycling bin, but this is one you have to keep because its an investment.

    Because they know star wars collectors arent cheap like so many transformers collectors are. Thats my guess.

    They were pretty awesome, a shame they can't give one-steps knees. I mean, if Cyberverse Warriors are basically Fast Action Battlers... And those have knees. Well. Except for that one Starscream mold.

    It’s way too big for me, but I’m pleased that it exists. Nice to see the designers having some fun with him :)

    I appreciate that Unicron can now be measured in standard cat mass units.

    Don't, it's likely we'll never know a TF this epic ever again, if you have the chance to have it, do it.

    Well I was hoping more for the box to be more high end especially with spending over $600 for a figure that should be premium all the way around. Not just a cardboard box. I mean HasLab did a really nice vintage Star Wars box for Jabba's Sail Barge which is awesome. Which purchasers paid less for then we did for Unicron.

    For Unicron we just get a simple yet sturdy cardboard box with simplistic art work which may or may not be in color.

    I was hoping for some sort of awesome vintage nostalgic Transformers G1 box as this is a figure mostly for the adult collectors and not for kids especially with having such a high price tag. I mean in 1984 paying $24.99 for Optimus Prime was high for me as a kid. And with Unicron being a Generation 1 release character, I believe he deserves a awesome box to be a talking point amongst our collections not just the Unicron figure itself. I was hoping for something on the lines of the Takara release of Primus's box from 2005.

    Would have loved to see this kind of box art in purple with grid lines with the old school Transformers logo with a Decepticon symbol and on the back all the Decepticon leaders. Or even a mixture of purple and red in the same style with the Transformers logo with Autobot and Decepticon symbols. With a scene of Unicron attacking Cybertron on the back of the box. Then showing some amazing art work of Unicron on the front with his robot mode and planet mode on the sides. Just something that makes me feel like I am getting what I am spending my money on. As for me the box is just as important as the figure inside. I want to have that feeling of what it was like when I was a kid when I see the box just like the boxes I have for my G1 boxes figures. Seems to much like Generations Select boxes.:banghead:  Just don't want packaging to become a lost art like die cast metal parts!!!

    its a box. You’re buying Unicron not what he comes in to get to you and what’s gonna end up in a landfill someday.

    Funniest damn thing would be they did make a big flashy box update and when Unicron comes out and he missing a feature promoted and hasbro response it “well you babies bitched about wanting a better box so something had to get cut out of the budget to give it to ya”

    Fans: how come Unicron’s eyes don’t light up? And what happened to the mini Galvatron and Rodimus?

    hasbro: you wanted a fancy box.

    fans: what’s that suppose to mean?

    Hasbro: it means be happy with what you get and throw your trash away
