    I'm being optimistic and hoping, based off of factoring in travel times.

    Just curious, what method did you use to ship it and how much did that cost?

    I'm wondering if FedEx is delivering the Canadian orders on the weekend, like they do in the US?

    Can't wait for a 3rd/4th party to make a "cheap" one of these guys.

    After zeta scare no ones touching this mold. As for 3rd parties, zeta’s your only bet. Wouldn’t put much hope in one when making the 20th Optimus prime is much safer.

    If I could like this statement even more I would!!! No one in their right minds will even touch this mold!!! This was a one and done by Hasbro, and they knocked it out of the park!!! I am one of the people who have also purchased Studio cell, and thoroughly enjoy that figure, but that can’t hold a candle to haslab’s!!! People will disagree I’m sure, and that’s okay. Studio cell is a great cartoon accurate interpretation of Unicron, but nothing could have prepared me for how much Haslab’s Unicron could have blown my mind!! This is literally the Holy Grail of my entire collection!!!! I do not regret for one second making this purchase!!! Good luck waiting for a 3rd party to copy it or do better, cause it ain’t happening. You snooze, you loose!!!!

    Managed to just fit him in my largest cabinet. The back kibble makes posing limited and I had to remove one of the ring pieces on each side. But at least this way he stays safe and dust free rather than putting him on top of the shelf.

    I just got him in mine too by removing one wing on each side. Fyi, I also removed the back support on the stand so I could get him on it. My cabinet has a 15" depth (22" wide).

    Nicely done. Unfortunately my cabinet isn't deep enough to fit the stand even with the back support removed. The back kibble rests on the glass backing so it should hopefully hold up over time without the stand.

    Could someone take a few pics of Unicron with G1 Fort Max if they have both? I'm curious to see how they compare in not only height but bulk as well.

    Has anyone discovered the proper Orange color paint for the big guy? I have a tiny chip on his forehead that I'd like to quickly cover up.
