    Ain't no reach, friend. Give it about an hour after the first Kingdom reveals and we'll be knee deep in trying to figure out if it's Warden or ___ behind the new stuff.

    It took about 3 months to get the first update after the deadline, then 4 months to get the second. Going by those numbers we should either get one in either a few weeks or just over a month, depending if they go 3 or 4 months. Just speculating.

    well cell does have the worst nightmare of a transformation in history going for it and how easy pieces break.... so congrats on that. 400$ for something half the mass with those problems for cell.......... yeah I'll deal with some back kibble or remove a pin if I have to with Haslab.

    As an owner of cell (and hopefully Haslab’s unicron) I honestly don’t get how people are breaking their figure. Transformation may suck, but I legit can’t figure how some of those things broke on some copies.

    Anyone who has trouble transforming Cell should probably just buy the Red line and avoid toys that transform, because it’s not only a piece of cake but extremely intuitive.

    the two pieces I broke were because of my own carelessness. Neither have hindered my enjoyment of the figure — arguably the most brilliant transformer ever designed.

    intuitive yes......... frustrating and fiddly to get planet shells to stay in place... fudging beyond yes.

    I'll wait for fans toys which will do it right

    I’ll agree with you on that; you do have to redo pieces to get it all together. But I don’t find that an aggravating process as they do all fit together in the end.

    my biggest complaint is the unnecessarily tight clips that hold the legs to the body in planet mode. There is no reason for them to hold them that strongly.

    That's right, the cat with the feet.

    He's pictured here with Aaron Archer, who was rebuilt into a new body and was given new troops to command.

    Hey Capirus, thanks for checking in. I had started a bunch of the head sculpt post (including having taken something like 60 screen caps from the movie), but I got distracted by other new TF toys and then some personal issues. It will get done, but I need to get back in that groove and that may take a while (sorry).

    To make this post more worthwhile, reposting the images from the new Figure King, which I don’t think have made it into this thread yet (though we may have seen some of the images before)

    Yeah, no problem. Just like your write-ups is all. Take care of your yourself first. And yeah, I get being distracted by other toys, haha! I'm currently trying to get Target GI Joes so sometimes things slip my mind.

    Well this unicron haslab says early release in 2021. Probably will get pushed back cos of this corona situation or will they honour their release date?

    Right now there is no reason to assume any massive delay, at most it might be late quarter 1 in 2021, which would still be within their estimates

    Just thought of something cool, the Master Made Titans would probably scale well with Unicron
