    I haven't heard of anyone in Canada getting a shipping notice yet.

    Get a room, you two. This thread is about Unicron, not his ungrateful stepchild. "Here you go son, I'll save you from death, give your pals some fresh threads, and even hook you up with a new car. I only need you to run a small errand for me. Uhh... Why are you trying to kill me already?"

    That might be because Canada is on the other side of an impassable land bridge aka a sign denoting a border crossing which can flummox some of the most seasoned mail carriers.

    Turn your rings around so the point counter clockwise. The instructions are 100% wrong. I know this because I bet you had an insane time getting the top ring pole into his top sphere. If you look where it plugs in, there is a little round cutout for the sphere on the top of the ring piece. Ring needs to be counter clockwise in order to use that cut out. Inspect it an you will know exactly what I’m talking about.

    Got an email back from them, they will take a US forwarding address and redo the final cost, I recommend checking myUS.com for shipping because they claim they don't count dimentional size just actual weight, I'm in Ireland so should be pretty much the same costs as UK

    The more I think about it the more confused I get. Besides the Decepticon ship, why not package him with the Quintesson ship that stabs out his eye? Or the Junkion ship that he crushes? I mean, there were a number of ships that he had an association with in that movie and they give him the one ship that he doesn't. :lol

    The pics I have seen of Kingdom Galvatron show him holding guns like look like his ship. I bet they even fit into the little clear stand that came with Unicron.

    This is why big Transformer toys are a no-no for me. Because not only would I have to find a place for the giant toy, but as I certified "box hoarder" I'd have to find a place for the giant box too.

    I know the early photos and CAD have the ring reversed from how it is in the instructions, but I can't for the life of me figure out what difference it makes. I followed the instructions when assembling my ring and had zero problems plugging the poles into the sphere. Curious if anyone else had as much trouble as you're describing -- haven't heard anyone say so, and most people seem to have gone with the instruction assembly so far.

    Anyone else have their unicron not getting delivered on the day that they say you have to be home for to be delivered?

    In fact, FedEx doesn't even know where mine is because it hasn't updated in the system since Wednesday despite today being the delivery day.

    I'm confused, my rings look like an exact mirror of one another. The tips look identical.

    It seems that they are gonna all be shipped to the distribution center in canada and THEN go to canadians who backed. Just basing on the shipping costs being reasonable. I paid less in shipping for Unicron than I did for Sky Lynx and Skorponok

    You had no trouble plugging in the North Pole? That’s the part I’m talking about. Yes you can jam/force it in but if you turn it around it will line up and slide in with minimum force.

    Yeah, I didn't have to jam or force either pole. Seems like it was designed to allow for either assembly.

    I can't even figure out how you switch the wings to go the other direction. The connection into Unicron is keyed. Unless I got two of the same parts
