    Unicron is anatomically symmetrical, but the circular "crater" details across his surface are sort of randomized and scattered. The 3P version just mirrors those details, unlike what we see with the Haslab version.

    A good example here:
    [​IMG]
    I do like Zetacron but the planet mode is a bit lackluster with the color scheme and the somewhat thin torso compared to Haslabicron.
    Zetacron has a good robot mode but a lacking planet mode (the colors and polar caps not matching).
    Haslabicron has a good planet mode and decent robot mode (the kibble is bad but I don't mind it much).

    As far as we know, no. Most likely just a few pins to take it off tho. And whether Hasbro makes it detachable is unknown as well.

    Only the spike strips hanging off the back and shoulder are more or less confirmed as removable (since those are packaged unattached). We have no reason to believe plates on the back and legs are detachable at this point.

    It looks like it could've been with a simple change but people vehemently hate partsforming sadly but then complain about too much kibble and wanting the kibble detachable. It's just hypocritical.

    How? Surely all they want is HasTak to create, perfect and (cheaply) commercialise, a form of mass shifting technology that gives an individual their perfect alt mode, bot mode, aesthetic and sculpt. And that's for every individual of course so you have a personalised copy.

    Don't know what you are doing talking about hypocrisy...

    I really doubt Hasbro cares much about a small (yet vocal) group of people who get butthurt about stupid shit like that.

    Didn't they show that technology in the documentary about Transformium that was released in theaters a few years ago?

    I don't mean to be that guy.... Ok I do... But what upgrades do you all think will be made for this?

    I'm thinking replacement light up wings/ring....

    And an edible planet?

    More micro figures and ships, an alternate head with electronics, effect parts for his eye beams and breath attack are what I think will be more likely. Actually, since Unicron doesn't come with weapons, it would have been nice if Hasbro included effect parts themselves, but I don't know how much the price would have increased.

    From what's been gathered, they haven't revealed all of his accessories yet... But I think we may get more micro ships and figures maybe swap out eyes and horns.

    I would like the light up, non hollow wings and a victim planet with 'light effect', and better articulated hands. I think they will be upgrade kits, along with kibble covers... I will keep mine in planet mode..

    I think

    Pretty sure what’s been revealed is it.
    Hasbro said no electronics, so lights or voice clips are out. Anything for upgrading will have to be third party. If Hasbro releases an upgrade kit, people will be sh-ting kittens. “I paid $600 for this and now they want more $?” It’d be worse than download content for video games.
