    Oh no, it's the first of the Chinese Knock-offs!
    Wonder who they bought it from.

    It says this on most international release TFs and said it on mine when I ordered it back in February. These are most likely cancellations or stuff held back for parts. They've released several small batches at the $1,399 price the past couple months. As far as I know any Haslab Unicron is the same as any other haslab unicron, there isn't an Asian Market version for example

    Lmao at the lowest shipping that comes to about $2500 Canadian. Guess it pays to be late.

    I suspect the price is just going to climb in 5 to 10 years especially misb. Price right now is crazy already and he has only been out a few months. Only way to bring this price down is if they make another iteration that is better than this one. Or re release him. And the chances of both of those options happening is slim to none.

    Anyone else miss the deadline on the free Unicron comic with your HasLab Purchase?

    It was only digital, and the deadline to claim a digital copy was before Unicron shipped. I wish a physical copy would have just been included in the box. I was wondering if it was any good.

    If it's the one I'm thinking of, it's forgettable. It's just a retelling of TF:TM in a ~26 page comic, with the only real notable thing about the art is having "new" characters like Lugnut fill some of the crowd scenes.

    It also had a 2 page scene of Omega Supreme & the combiners battling during the Autobot City attack.

    Only direct Pulse backers got it. Even those who used the affiliated retailers (as opposed to BBTS etc.) didn't get one

    Thanks! Did they mention Skyfire/Jetfire in it?

    I received 2 codes by email from Hasbro for the comic because I had ordered from them, but the code expired a few months after I got it, and I waited until I got a new computer before trying to download them and had overlooked the expiration date, and it was too late by then.

    Sorry to hear — it’s more of a nice to have but certainly not essential by any means. No Jetfire as far as I recall. I think the only other meaningful cameo was Reflector as part of the Decepticon counterattack against Unicron, which I guess we can use to explain why they didnt show up in S3

    At least that seller had the decency to include shipping. :) 

    But seriously, why would anyone post an ad like that with a price more than ten times the majority of ads for the same item? Having said that, the prices overall appear to be higher than the last time I looked. The BBTS price looks cheap now.
