    I think most of the reaction lately has more to do with the fact that we’re on page 1265 of the same criticisms. If you’re here to point out that he has kibble, just move on. It’s been pointed out literally thousands of times. You’re not accomplishing anything.

    Honestly when compared to Haslab's other creations, Unicron looks comparatively weaker. Jabba's barge looks incredible, like a prop from the damn movie and the Cookie Monster replica (that sadly wasn't fully funded) looked amazing. For the amount of money they required to make him a thing he really should look better.

    All he has going for him is the size and the planetary mode. In every other aspect he's clobbered by Core Star. Bigger isn't always better, it seems.

    He has more issues than just his kibble though, there's his dopey expression, the fact that he'll probably be quite back-heavy and will struggle to stand, the price-point and so on.

    Not everyone is gonna read through all those pages and you shouldn't realistically expect them to. People will repeat points / criticisms, it's inevitable, getting exasperated is a waste of time.

    I mean, it seems to get under some of your skin, which is pretty funny to watch. They're both expensive figures of the same character, comparisons will inevitably be drawn... so no, it isn't off-topic.

    Core star mostly looks better and that annoys you to hear because you were possibly one of the guys who spent half a thousand on him, I mean I'd be pretty ticked as well. :p

    That’s cool. Keep fighting the good fight then. I’m sure you’re accomplishing big things.

    I've gotten this same sarcastic passive aggressive response twice in this thread now, I think. :lolol  Or maybe it was in another thread...

    They can't think of a rebuttal and just go "That's cool."

    Is admitting to being wrong really such a ghastly proposition?

    You're trolling the thread, hoping for reactions, and then trolling harder when you don't get them. There's no rebuttal necessary for that.

    I'm doing no such thing, good sir. I'm simply inputting my two cents on this pricey figure. You describing what I'm doing here as 'trolling' is intellectual dishonesty.

    Considering the size, this figure will have a lot of playability being compatible with other WFC figures. Also the fact you can transform him while remaining on the stand is another benefit. The transformation is movie inspired which adds another element of playability.

    I’m looking forward to displaying in both modes. Even more so now that they switched to movie orange and not keeping that garish yellow.

    I actually like the gaps on the planet rings. It makes the rings seem as though they are pulled together/constructed out of debris and skeletal in nature.

    I'll patiently wait for the third party upgrade kits. A lighting kit would really make it sing even more. C'mon Hasbro give me a release date.

    Yeah, Unicron doesn't look as clean as the sail barge or the Sentinel, but those figures didn't have to deal with the compromises required for the transformation. Now if you don't like the sculpt itself it's subjective, to me it looks better than the other figures of the character.

    Honestly I still don\'t regret my decision to not get this I still think that the takara universal dominator looks better And personally studio cell 01 blows this thing out of the water, it\'s cheaper and it doesn\'t have a backpack But even then I didn\'t buy that either so I didn’t wanna spend 400 on a ko unicron

    Price should not have anything to do with why something is better. Thats like saying a honda civic is better than a lambrogini because its cheaper.

    I never did say price is what matters, only that it is cheaper, which is a statistical fact, but i am saying the ko studio cell is a far better figure from the design aspect, it doesn’t need a backpack to turn into a planet, it’s smaller but still Hefty

    His face is the face of Unicron as depicted in the original animated film. Why would you want them to deviate from the source material? If you're not a fan of G1 Unicron then why would you concern yourself with this item in the first place?

    Heres your quote. Blows it out of the water due to price and backpack.

    I read my quote, I said it’s cheaper
    Which is a fact, not that I’m saying price is literally the important factor,

    if you don’t like what I say ignore it or get mad, have a good day
