    Damn you're down near Miami and I'm in Tampa but haven't gotten any update whatsoever.
    Now I'm thinking mine is lost or unscanned. :-/

    Hmm, East Bay here, not sure what happened but if you have a fedex account, check to see if there is a shipping label made. Sometimes I would get the shipping notice after it was delivered from pulse.

    Gotta admit, I'm a bit jelly. Then again, I'm not because I don't have room to store what amounts to a small child lol

    Yes, I would like the colors to match the instructions but all in all this thing is amazing. It's a nice centerpiece and I'm enjoying looking at it's planet mode so I probably won't transform him for a little bit. It's also giving me a weird feeling, almost like closure. I'm pretty close to having the collection I want. Aside from an MP Galvatron, MP combiner, and MPs outside of G1 or movies, I just may be done collecting. Never anticipated that.

    From when I first got him.

    Also be careful, I noticed when I went to transform him back to planet mode that one of the tabs on the slider behind his neck was bent most of the way off.

    Does anyone have a quick link showing how to properly get the stand on the planet out of the box? How to release what panels to clear it open enough? Instruction fail, the unboxings I watched just drop it on except the one above says 'mess with the bottom and make it like this' but that is not really making me comfortable and there isn't much detail..

    There are two movable parts down there, the silver rectangular section and a blue square section... if you play/open the panels in that general area you can fold them both in... the stand basically just slides in and almost didn’t seem like it grabbed anything, but it does...

    the very last page with instructions on it has some pictures of it open in that area

    Thank you! That's partly what I get for not reading through the whole book before getting started. I can see it laid out, but I cannot tell where the points of release are for the side shell panels initially.

    Edit - got it.. kinda scary :(  Who doesn't provide instructions for that >.<

    yeah it is a bit tricky figuring out the instructions but both pieces do fold inside the sphere and you do have to flex the long tab a bit to fold around the obstacle of the shell...it isn't a natural move and seems wrong at first but it does work

    Thank you!! Hope these pics help. 2x SMD5050s wired to twisted pair of 32AWG magnet wire. Powered by 3V power supply. But this does require a fair bit of modding since you have to create holes for the eyes yourself.

    It is not an exaggeration that those mini figures that come with Unicorn are the size of a grain of rice because they ARE

    I was thinking the same until I got notice. Hopefully yours will ship soon.
