    From what I have heard (and assuming I remember correctly, it’s 2:36 am now) they definitely will. They made some extra unicrons for goof ups like yours

    Anybody keeping the box to use as a display base?

    I'm considering either putting the box in a custom-fitted acrylic case, or coating the box with a clear waterproof lacquer.

    Any thoughts/suggestions?

    I plan on just setting Unicron on top of the box at the corner of my basement I've picked out for him, once I determine it's safe to move it out of my basement storage room.:p

    So I just called FedEx... According to them it was dropped off yesterday and is available for pickup... Great... Thanks for the notifications... Tried to call the pickup location and the line is constantly busy... What gives? Lol Guess I know where I'm going directly after work.

    Wish me luck!

    My delivery date is still listed as today but it still hasn't been scanned into my state, let alone my area. Yeah, don't think it'll be today or even tomorrow...

    Your car would need plenty of storage space.

    After investigating the broken left hip ratchet on my Unicron, I have found on way to get the pelvis opened. There are no visible screws and no obvious covers. I would have to completely disassemble the torso as well as pop all the pins for all the hip skirts, which are one way pins btw and there is no opposite side to push out from, just to even consider opening the pelvis to see what the exact problem even is. I do not know if it is feasible for me to attempt. I doubt that Hasbro would offer to replace the entire pelvis and hip assembly even if they had the parts. Still,... going to have to attempt to contact them. My Unicron does not stand on its own.

    Man that sucks. I really hope you can get it taken care of somehow. Definitely contact Hasbro about it. It's a defective product so they should at the very least let you return and get your money back. Hopefully it can be repaired or replaced.

    I never really liked the robot mode and got it for the planet. Not to beat a dead horse, but then the color on the planet opening changed and that just rubbed me the wrong way. I sorta got used to it over time but the final nail in the coffin for it was it just looked (please don't take this as a slam on it, this is just my opinion) cheap against the other stuff in my room. I don't collect Habsro stuff and up against the MP's and painted stuff, it just looked sorta bland.

    I have the Zeta for Unicron bot mode and Studio Oz's Unicron head (which is beautiful if you all haven't seen one, I highly recommend it) so I just figured it was best to sell it to someone who could appreciate all of it. I was a little hesitant to sell it but once it did sell and it was beyond my owning it anymore, it felt right to let it go. I know the guy who gets it will love it and that's the right person to have it, not someone who's making it excuses to make it work for him.

    Well... Definatly contacting Hasbro on this. If they cannot or will not help with repair or replacement, I will just deal with it. No way I am refunding and ending up with no Unicron. Fig is just too damn cool.

    I write this in hopes that maybe someone knows how to disassemble the pelvis. Watching the latest LEK custom painting vid. Maybe that will help me figure it out.

    EDIT: now I know where all the bloody screws are. damn if it isn't some major surgery to get at that hip joint.

    Well, at least there's the stand you can use for display. Best of luck getting the problem resolved.

    Unicron’s planet mode has 64 long equatorial spires. He has another 26 short ones, so 90 total. I don’t know who else besides me needed to know that, but there you go

    He's heeerrreee! Can't open him just yet, I still have to finish "Grimlock's New Brain" then "Call of the Primitives" in my Unicron watch through. Then I'll pop on the movie while I open him!

    Huzzah! I called Hasbro today and was able to confirm that my replacement head was shipped and should arrive this Saturday! Huge thanks to Oneida at Hasbro for passing along the tracking number. So excited for this ordeal to be over and to finally have a reason to transform the big guy. The weekend can't come soon enough! :D

    Hundreds of pages of bickering has compelled me to do this..
    I designed this first prototype in less than 30 minutes and paint matched in 2 seconds.

    First to the proof of concept. Thank you sir.


    I am not doubting your skills, but since it seems it was so easy for you to do, there is no excuse for Hasbro to NOT fabricate one of these and send it out to all backers to save some face for future Haslab projects.

    I'm a patient guy, but 3 weeks pending on my shipment. Friends who ordered late through 3rd party are getting theirs and I'm getting close to it being impossible to take the day off. Starting to get annoyed
