    I transformed mine the day I got him (yesterday!) only because I was concerned about QC issues. But I agree, he looks so good in planet mode I wish I had bought two!

    all these guys who havent transformered their uni's yet. or dont even know when they might even feel like getting around to it.

    my advice is please do it as soon as possible.

    hopefully there arent any QC issues. but that way if there are any issues you can address them with Haslab and have them taken care of asap. dont take the chance or getting to them too late and finding out you are SOL.

    just my random 2 cents.

    I agree, transform him asap. Be sure you have no issues now or regret it forever.

    He has great legs, really able to pose any way I want especially with the toe and heel ratchets. The arms are definitely somewhat limited though due to the way the shoulders are done. He has a presence like none other in robot mode, especially posed dynamically.

    The transformation was rough and the instructions are minimal despite the overdone presentation. He's just so big, awkward, and tight. I loved the wing transformation, I find it quite brilliant.

    Unicron is not only the great centrepiece of your transformers collection, it is also great as a home decoration. :D

    I absolutely agree, transform him ASAP and check him out. Some have reported two left hands, shoulder joint issues, missing heads, etc. As Afterburner pointed out, the instructions aren't great. I had more success watching emgo316's (the Freakin' Geek himself) review which was helpful:

    A nice homage to the original movie poster from the Generations 2021 book:

    My Unicron from BBTS just shipped! No estimated arrival date yet but I suspect it'll be here either the end of this week or early next week.

    I've never seen a pic of Unicron that made him look tiny until now
