    HasbroPulse sold approx 12k domestic units. These 24”cubes at 33 lbs. can only be moved 4 (max) at a time with a fork lift. That’s a lot of semi trucks. No clue how many units FedEx can absorb in a day but I do know they do all the shipping labels at once. It’s all just sitting in a stack, waiting to go. The folks with FedEx accounts are alerted to the fact that they have a package coming even though it’s just the tracking number that’s activated. Everyone else is kept in the dark until they are alerted. HasbroPulse sends out the emails about a week out from when FedEx gets to the stack your Uni is in. So rest easy that somewhere in a warehouse is a boxed up Unicron with your address on it.

    I can’t wait to see your magnificent display case to house Unicron when it arrives. Good luck.

    Now I'm picturing the warehouse at the end if Indiana Jones filled with unshipped Unicrons.

    Hahaha. Yup. They are cumbersome. These pics show how much space they can take up.

    Haslab's planet mode is so much better than Cell it's not even funny. And I was also reminded how much I hate Cell's transformation putting him into planet mode for the comparison. If someone wants to take Cell off my hands, hit me up. I'll sell him to you for a steal of a price. 20210328_013602.jpg

    Wait, so does this mean all the domestic Pulse Unicrons are already in the US? I ask this because I wonder if orders from stores like BBTS are part of that count.

    Fingers crossed that my Unicron is stateside and sitting in a warehouse :cool:

    I don’t know about the details of “Hasbro partners” like BBTS and such. The 12k units was from the top of my head. Remember how right after the campaign ended, some of us were about to “read” HasbroPulse’s source code to learn how many units sold? That’s the number. My guess is all the Unicrons should be in the US. We saw the factory pics, they were made all in one time frame. Container cargo ships are some of the most efficient and reliable form of transport in modern society. Bananas go from tropical locals to your grocery in about a week. Unicron from China to the US would only take 20 days. Once it’s here, I’ve no clue how everyone is prioritized. That’s between HP and BBTS. I’ve worked in the shipping industry for a few years in my early twenties so I know how long, (or slow) it takes to load up a semi with a fork lift.

    I don’t believe that is true. I have a fedex account and haven’t received a tracking number.

    (Waiting for cannibalchow to like my post is almost a bad as waiting for an email from hasbro that my unicron has shipped) :bowdown:

    I just hope my Unicron isn't in one of those ships.

    where are you getting that from? that isnt correct at all for various reasons. unicron is shipping 12 a skid and any basic forklift can lift 4000lbs with ease.

    since these are already palletized to a 450lb pallet that is basically nothing. these could easily be moved around efficiently with pallet jacks or mini lifts.

    Basically, you'll have to start on page 15 of the instruction booklet. Better to have planet mode upside down on carpeting / Bed / something that won't scuff your figure. Then open up the bottom panels.




    Play the videos in reverse? :)

    Shipped from TCP on Wednesday, today it just hit Independence, MO.

    Scheduled delivery for me in NY is tomorrow.

    I don't believe it'll happen.

    No. You are wrong. People were/are arguing on both sides.

    As far as Core Star and Unicron is concerned, my end thought is that Core Star just never was for me. It sacrifices so much for the sake of a clean robot mode. Unicron's size, surface detail, transformation and planet mode are all a superior package.

    Sure the robot mode isn't as clean but damn you cannot tell me it doesn't look good in a display. Also Core Star's symmetrical detailing on the body really bothers me. Not a fan of it at all. That and the fact that the open mouth look Is a separate piece is a huge oof to me also.
