    So Fedex "found" my Unicron after I called about it. They apparently put it on a delivery truck today and tried to deliver it and said nobody was home...despite me being home all day waiting with the front door open (I have a glass storm door too). So yeah, firs they couldn't find it, then they find it after I complain. Then they lie about trying to deliver it. Such a s***ty company.

    Is there a video out yet that converts it back to planet mode? I tired myself out getting it robot mode and I really don't want to have to use the instructions backwards in order to do it

    Unicron’s fedex trek across the country has certainly reinvigorated my interest in U.S. geography, as I relearn which states are connected to each other, which one MO stands for, and how far away that is

    Can someone tell me if I have the leg panels correct? Having a hell of a time getting it to collapse in. Everything else is good.

    Finished reinforcing my shelf! I used some thin better looking L brackets in the front and some thicker heavier duty ones with crossbeams in the back (behind the SS86 backdrops). I'm no craftswoman, but I get the job done! Also added some cheap lights I found. Can't wait to demote ArmadaCron to planet mode and put the new boi up there!

    Yeah, I mentioned that in my review as well. Pics don't capture the sheer mass of this guy next to a titan very well. It's impressive.

    Had to re-route mine to a fedex store because I was working today. Easy pickup, except not realizing they close at 6pm on Saturday and I am flying to pack my stuff and get out of the house I am working on. Giant basketball of doom is now here though, so I am happy.

    Any chance your guy knows how many boxes a day are coming from the warehouse to FedEx. I haven’t gotten a shipping notice and I’m not in full on panic mode yet but somebody give me some idea of how long it’s going to take

    are they pushing 500 boxes out the door a day or less?

    This top piece above the mouth is 100% stuck for me. I cannot get it apart and if I push it too hard it'll break it on the inside where the screws are. This blows. I've already seen a YouTube video of someone breaking it in this exact same spot.

    Forgot about this guy for a while...

    I just got back from vacation yesterday, and found this guy had been delivered; no need for a signature, apparently.

    I'll make this review quick, and as accurate as possible:

    This guy is big, REALLY big! I had a spot picked out when I ordered him, and of course, not big enough. Looks like I will have to build a small table for him.

    Planet mode is incredible, in my opinion; once the rings and spikey bits are on, it really does look like he came out the 1985 movie! Yes, I am aware of the blue parts of the maw, and while a bit jarring at first, I do believe that it helps break up the colors somewhat. If I want to chage those parts to orange/yellow in the futures, I'm fairly confident that i can get it done. The chomping parts I will color silver one of these days. The mechanical maw feature is a nice touch, and for me, fun to fiddle with.

    Transformation took me about an hour, and that was with me being careful. The plastic feels as if it has the right abount of give, rigidity, and strength to hold the figure up. You do want to be careful, but there are times when a bit more force than you would think will need to be applied. Look up some youtube videos if you get stuck, no sense on breaking him, or being overly worried at certain parts.

    Robot bot mode is amazing, for me at least. Lots of people complained about the kibble on him, and I can see why. However, after watching the Movie several years ago, and again recenty, I had wondered where all the extra mass would go in a realistic setting. As a kid, I had always thought that planet modes mandibles where parts of his helmet in robot mode, and as a planet he used them to pull whatever he was eating into his mouth. Feel free to laugh, but kids do get some strange ideas sometimes. Anyhow, I for one have no issue with the kibble, I think it makes him look more imposing, but thats just my opinion.

    Would I recommend this to anyone? That depends.

    If your wallet is deep, your a fan of the Chaos bringer, and have plenty of space to display him, then yes, I would say this is a good figure to have... provided you can get him for a decent price, that is.

    If your just a casual fan, a little to hard on tranformers when you transform them, or simply can't afford him, then no.

    To everyone thats still waiting for him, don't worry, he will arrive. The box itself is huge, and i can see why they couldn't deliver all of these figures ar once. Remember what Unicron said about his destiny:

    YouTube


    Granted, he did blow up shortly after saying that, but still....

    Have you tried a plastic spudger? I found I need to have some "tools" to safely transform many of these toys. My hands use too much force and plastic bends and doesn't mar the toy as easily.

    Your stories scare me, i haven't tried to transforming my unicron yet. It may be a bit before I do get to it OR ill try tomorrow.

    That part doesn’t come apart!!! It’s a hinge. Unless I’m misunderstanding you.

    I have no Unicron. I have a label.
    It's only digital. Feels like a fable.
    I'm so jealous, of those who're able,

    To display and transform,
    This monstrous delight.
    Trying not to begrudge,
    For this shipping slight.

    A new day tomorrow dawns,
    With hope of an update,
    Please HasLab and FedEx,
    This can't be my fate.

    No Planet Eater? No ring of doom?
    No Maw either, not yellow, nor blue!

    Please give me those horns,
    Please show me those claws,
    I'd give darn near anything,
    To have those unpainted jaws.

    His shelf space for two years has been picked,
    Other movie characters,
    Arranged in their cliques,
    Waiting to welcome,
    This character, so slick.

    I'll try again tomorrow,
    To withhold my sorrow,
    As I refresh my email,
    And tap on the app,

    I hope he'll be here soon,
    To fill my collection gap.

    The End.
