    I changed my shipping address during that window and got my Unicron during the first USA shipping wave, so at least from my experience that's probably not the case.

    Hopefully you'll get your shipping notice soon.

    For those of you who have 2 Unicrons (or one Unicron modded into 2), do anyone of you display planet mode along side robot mode too? It would be great if you can share some pictures here. :)

    I still haven't got mine. I ordered in the last days, and my address has been the same since the start. It really is that "no rhyme or reason" thing we've mentioned. Perhaps we'll be the last two to get ours. Just because

    Not sure if anybody has done this, so I apologize if this is old rehashed news, but it's fairly easy to reverse the hinge in his head:

    reverse_head_hinge.jpg

    This allows the head to sit further forward. The connection isn't quite as secure, but it will hold. This ultimately allows lighting from below to hit his face much easier:

    head_forward_1.jpg


    head_forward_2.jpg

    The major downsides are that the head loses virtually all articulation (you're left with maybe half inch swivel left and right, at most). I've also not tried to transform him with his head like this, but I'm guessing it's impossible. But for my purposes, it's a no-brainer modification.

    A GREAT idea would be a custom 3D printed part that connects the head in this position to the torso better to allow full articulation. It would really just need to copy the female port on the torso and the male clips on the head on a 3/4" cylinder to provide clearance for the head to move again. I would pay for that in a heartbeat.

    Yep, that's pretty much it.

    If you've received a ship notice of any sort, you are already ahead of me.

    Thank you Kapow Toys :) :) 

    I’ve opened the box to check the contents but I don’t really have time to transform him today. I will wait until I can focus and enjoy the experience rather than rush.

    I’m really looking forward to this!

    “The Enterprise crew beamed into the box, expecting to find swarms of deactivated Borg. But what they found inside was much, much more terrible....”

    No, that's not it. I had to change the address - twice - on one for my in-law, and his arrived first.

    I DM’ed a fedex rep on Twitter and asked what is the logic behind fedex giving and estimated delivery date when fedex hasn’t picked up a package. Eventually she acquiesced. She admitted that fedex assumed when a label is printed it is being shipped that day. I asked her If she knew what that means when you assume and she replied yes. Granted this hiccup was announced several pages pack in the forum but it was nice for someone representing fedex to admit in not so many words that their system is stupid.

    Revisting this gallery, weeping that I couldn\'t justify backing this myself. \"Your bargaining posture is highly dubious!\"

    The mold detailing on Unicron’s horns largely mrror those on the maw pincers. I suspected this before when looking at preview pictures but it’s nice to confirm it in hand. In the movie, I think the planet pincers are intended to become the head horns in robot mode, but that scale doesn’t work well for a figure (G1 prototype aside). So it looks like the engineers did the next best thing, making them mirror each other at different scales. Maw pincer on the left, head horn on the right. Just another great detail on this toy
