    thanks yeah i'm looking at them now, although their small print does say dimensional weight not factored below 80inchs LxWxH so i think it is 'just' ok - I was looking at MyUS and Shipito - dont suppose anyone has experience of either and can recommend one over the other?

    Fun fact: when rapidly opening and closing the planetary mouth, the gear-cranking noise of the mechanism sounds more than a tiny bit like the sound Pac-Man makes. :)

    TCP shipped my Unicron on Wednesday night, he's taken a tour of at least three cities in Arizona and now he's in New Mexico.

    I'm in New York. ETA is Monday.

    Yeah! I remember being stoked when I saw this early prototype pic with Fort Max, and then a little disappointed by the first comparison pic with the actual toy itself (even though I knew Uni was set back a bit). That's why I've been so glad to hear folks like yourself emphasizing how massive this guy is next to titans. I think this pic from BSF's review captures the differential well--as well as pic can at any rate. I'm sure the difference is even more glaring in person.

    No. Hasbro does not have full replacements. Maybe some parts. But no full replacement. You would just get a refund.

    Why fedex? Because hasbro got a STEEP discount.

    city of industry, needles ca, Navajo nation az.

    Hell of an interesting road trip my unicron is on. Can’t wait for jackmehoff texas

    What are the chances Fedex stopped updating him and he is out for delivery like Advance tracker says on the top tab?
    I mean its that or somehow he stopped moving overnight from a location 4 hours away, since midnight

    Alright...someone help me feel less ******ed.

    I just unboxed mine, and cannot for the life of me figure out how to attach Unicron to the stand.

    Honestly makes me feel better that I'm not the only one whos Unicron is taking a presidential rail tour of the US like Lincoln did to get to Virginia. Mine seems to move one state every 12 hours. It shipped out Tuesday and was supposed to be here yesterday. Now it's just pending and still in Joplin MO. This is getting ridiculous and starting to really irritate me. We've had great weather all this week, now next week is supposed to rain like every day. Thanks FedEx.

    Thank yyou!

    I'd tried Google, as well as several video reviews...seems like none of them thought to mention something that is completely ignored in the instructions.

    Even when I think I finally have it figured out it gets bungled again. The latest status is that it is on the truck and out for delivery from FedEx's usual nearby Cudahy WI location, yet the estimated arrival date is now Monday. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Me no understand.

    Okay. I spoke to a Fedex manager at my work yesterday. He was there for a unrelated thing. Here is the low down with Unicron. He has been classified as oversized. Hasbro/Pulse made a deal to have him classified as oversized instead of freight (due to the box size). What does that mean. He gets put on trucks that have extra space on them. The box is outside of the normal packing guidelines so it does not fit the sorting algorithm they use to pack the trailers. This can lead to him taking a scenic tour of the US as he makes his way to his forever home. This also applies to the local delivery trucks; if there is no room he gets held back till there is room another day or on another truck. Yes it is damn inconvenient when you are patiently waiting for the "Out for Delivery" update but the alternative is waiting for a reefer or tractor trailer to pull up to deliver your Unicron; plus it would not have been free shipping from Pulse if it went freight (CA to VA freight starts at $370 and goes up as you increase the speed). The average travel time for freight coast to coast is 2-3 weeks. That 10 day Home Delivery is looking better and better. Also, that signature requirement is being left up to the local delivery managers' to enforce or not. My delivery zone is waiving the signature so keep an eye on the tracking as the box may just get dumped on the porch; door bell ring optional. The signature requirement was put in place before Covid hit and was not renegotiated. Hope this helps relieve some stress.

    Well, got him on the stand. Attaching the next bits, and discovered this:

    Minor damage, to be sure...but still a bit disappointed in that.
