    as demonstrated on my avatar, that’s precisely what i’m planning to do should they realize my request.

    Probably the most accurate representation of Galvatron Hasbro has released xD

    Time for sleep. Glad I’m part of the Unicron group. Good luck to the rest. Peace out for now

    Mini Galvatron looks like a piece of shit. Good thing I have the DX9 WiP version...

    I would so much rather have this. Same size as the Titanium series Autobot Shuttle would be great.

    totally agree about the damaged eyes needing to be GREEN (instead of unpainted/silver) - it's probably the biggest problem i can see with the figure right now, and i really REALLY hope Hasbro rectifies that!

    (to me, this is more important than the chin - hasn't Unicron been portrayed both with and without a bearded chin before? whereas his dead eye shards have *always* been green, in both the movie and the cartoons...!)

    is there any way we can communicate this matter-of-(Unicron's)-death issue to them?? :eek:

    So glad I got in on this before it’s triple the price after it gets funded.

    Galvatron looks like shit!

    Thanks Takara for including it! Really! I know I may be in the minority here because I am not a Siege fan. I am exclusively MP. But this is my one shot at Unicron. So I love it.

    I was hoping for some accessories, and these are good. Even if Galvatron looks crappy. Just look at the pic where Unicron is holding a tiny purple thing above his mouth! It's fine! I have settled that this isn't an MP Unicron, and I feel I will be more than just satisfied with it all in hand.

    That’s the main reason I’m getting 2. And if the resale market isn’t as robust as I predict then oh well-I’ll have one to display in both modes.

    It's got molded Cybertronian cities including Iacon. Plus I tend not to use 'Stand ins' for anything.

    I don't doubt that, but I just think they could have been more open about what the expanded features were going to be at the beginning of the project. Not being negative about it, just saying that revealing information would improve the support drive. Seeing how it's almost at 5,000 backers overnight, details are getting more people on board... at this rate, including me.

    Right, I understand that bit and it's a fair estimate. Maybe a little high but if the orders that haven't been entered yet will get us anywhere north of 6800 that's encouraging to me.

    At least it's halfway there. If it manages to reach the goal point before the week's out,it'd be a miracle.

    I asked about it when they were soliciting questions on Instragram and we aren't the only ones who have something to say about it. I'm sure they're aware of it at this point and people on the team probably noticed it before it was even revealed to us because it's so obvious. Will they do something about it if it enters production? I would say probably but if not at least it isn't THE face.

    FACT - Haslab's first project "sail barge" has doubled the price in less than a half year, even after paypal/ebay/amazon fees that's more than enough to cover the cost. You're VERY LIKELY to sell Unicron for more!

    Backers, BUY ANOTHER ONE! Make this happen!

    I was making a joke when I said I'd bet the exact price of backing Unicron. I shouldn't be accountable for others taking it seriously.

    Literally the only thing that bothers me now about the toy is the same problem I have with Amazon Anniversary Unicron compared to the Takara one - color shades. The yellow was more a deep ochre and the blue more teal in the movie. Or maybe was that only because of ... I dunno, shadows? In space?

    Clearly you never backed a kickstarter, indigogo, fig campaign yet...
    People give this much and more money for things that do not yet exist, toys, video games, movies, appliances, miniatures, game consoles... And they give it to often not well known people and companies who might not deliver, go bankrupt, or spend the money on blackjack and hookers and are never seen again. :D 
    I gave money to Crate Entertainment for Grim Dawn about 4 years before we got the final game. (Albeit, I was in the alpha testing). I gave 4 Horsemen money for fantasy action figures that due to troubles with the chinese factory, we only got 1.5 years later.
    And unlike these, Hasbro is an industry giant with decades of past successes. The chances of Hasbro running away with this money are practically nil. It is a surefire investment, and if it succeeds, we WILL get Unicron 2 years later. I do not mind if Hasbro invests that money in the meantim for other things, they are a company that needs to make money after all.
