    You can stand it up without the stand just fine. That’s how I have mine

    My Unicron has pretty much been out since I bought him, and lately I've been feeling like moving him into some kind of cabinet. Anyone have any furniture suggestions? I'd love to keep him in planet mode, but I'm not sure if those dimensions are feasible.

    The shorter Milsbo cases from Ikea fit Unicron in bot mode (gotta take out the shelves) without a stand, not deep enough for planet mode though

    He can stand up just fine. One of the benfits of using the standis it removes all the pressure and considerable weight from his hips. Overtime, using the stand will result in a more structurally sound piece.

    Yep yep.

    You guys have no idea how excited my man is for D-Saurus. He's practically buzzing with excitement.

    You can get a kit to light up the eyes.

    TFTM accurate wings. Cell got an upgraded larger set, but still too small for this guy.

    That's the single most important thing this figure doesn't have

    Yeah that would be nice. Though I am ok with the factory versions.

    For me it's hands with more range. Side to side movement at the joint between the phalanx base and metacarpus. Expanded vert and horz wrist hinge.

    The ability to spread Unicron's fingers is the one thing I would replace the existing hands for.

    I'm still wanting some kind of lightweight blast effects to give Unicron flame breath and an eye beam.

    Oh, and I would like a micro slug figure of Sludge, because it feels wrong to have Grimlock, Swoop, Slag and Snarl, but not Sludge.

    YES! A micro sludge to shove in the busted eyeball area!

    Hey, Hasbro! Give us a "Behold Unicron Part II" upgrade kit with new wings, hands and a micro Sludge. No hollow areas. Please.

    The wings are fine for me. New hands would be nice.

    I bought the eye light kit but they stopped working pretty quickly. I'm assuming the batteries died for some reason even though the lights were off but they are not super easy to change and I don't want to be changing them too often. Anyone else have that issue?

    But the most important thing for me is still the damn maw being the wrong colour. Yup. I'm still bitter about it. I display in planet mode and it bugs me every time I see it. I bought a cheap airbrush set and paint to attempt to paint it myself but I've never painted anything so I'm too chicken to actually do it. So it will most likely stay wrong forever. My son was watching the Netflix show the other day and HasLab Unicron appears in that show with the correct colour of maw. It was mocking me!! :oops:

    Overall I'm good with the wings too. The hands have always bugged me.

    The same exact thing happened with my eyes kit. I created a "U" shaped magnetic rig that would allow me to activate them both at the same time. It bugs the shit out of me it's all but impossible to get them pulsing in sync. I DO NOT look forward to replacing the batteries. Guess I should before they melt a hole through the back of his head.

    I bought the eye kit and the maw light and both died out in the first few weeks, the eye batteries are really hard to find unless you order them online
