    Thank you! She hasn't messed with Unicron too much, my other two cats haven't either. Plus I put him in a spare room usually so they don't get to him.

    Thank you!

    I put on the ring the other way around to more closely resemble the brief glimpse we see of Unicron in the Netflix series and, I believe, most promotional shots of him.

    Not that hard actually. I disassembled the backing plate for the maw. There’s only a single screw holding it to unicron. To that out and the whole assembly comes off. The take off the back plate of the assembly and take pics so you know how everything should be reassembled. It’s not a hard thing to paint. Spraying is the way to go. I didn’t because I never intended to go as far as I did. I just had some paint left over from a rattrap custom I did and wanted to see if it matched. It did but I didn’t have enough to spray.

    I used a mix with these paints. Orange for the base, decent amount of white, and green slowly. Be careful with the green it’s really strong

    i plan on panel lining everything. What kind of wash were you thinking. I mixed silver and red for the inner parts of the maw, and had red as a background color for the wires. Then I lined it with black to make them stand out. What color wash were you thinking that should be done there? Silver? Gunmetal? I felt it needed more but not quite sure what based off of the movie pics of him eating.

    But it's totally true though. We've known the dimensions & have been looking at pics for almost 2 years & it's still a complete shock when you open that box

    Ours is a Mainecoon Tabby mix. Not as big as your cat though. Someday I want to get a full blooded Mainecoon. I really want a dog size cat running around the house.

    it looks great! But I couldn’t quite work out from the picture what you were using the green on. Could you explain in a little more detail?

    i haven’t received a shipping notice either (unless it’s in my spam), but there is tracking from the hasbro page and it is making it’s way to me (slowly). Maybe check in the pulse page.

    For those of you who haven’t gotten a notice, I think Hasbro has an update for us. On the product page for Unicron, an estimated ship date of 4/22 is showing. I’m guessing that’s the date that the next boat full of Unicrons should be arriving at the Chino warehouse.

    I would also hazard a guess that BBTS orders will be fulfilled shortly after that (if they’re all on the same boat). I think their lateness this time around has to do with the fact that they ordered a larger quantity of Unicrons than some of the other retailers.

    This is just speculation, but I’m happier having a tangible date to look forward to at least.

    Update on Hasbro Consumer Care response regarding my slightly broken Unicron (broken rounded spike detail on shoulder). I received the following items from them:

    Holy crap! What a load of junk as compensation!

    Edit: Apologies if you are happy with this or like movie stuff. It's better than nothing, approximately $40 worth of merchandise.

    Wonder how many people are willing to shave off a spike now... lol. sad part is. Those don't fit in most chug collections. Better than nothing sure, but.. not exactly fitting. I guess it's better than getting something even more random like Nerf or something.

    For the Canucks out there waiting on their Unicrons like myself, Pulse shipped the Classified Series Supreme Commander ship from Georgia instead of within Canada.

    It’s arriving on Monday, so will see if FedEx tries any funny business with extra brokerage fees.
