    Maybe not that much taller, but those 4" make the actual overall size of Unicron massive. It takes up a lot of physical space. It makes a lot of large transformers look very, very, very small.

    4 inches can be considered towering yes......... especially when you consider the wings go even higher.

    You're butt hurt over Zeta Unicron......... we get it. there is no use to talking core star compared to haslab .. cuz zeta unicron, its not happening.

    Yeah, unless you buy it from within the EU, in that case customs don't apply. Sadly the only listings I found that aren't from UK are still around 800-900 euro.

    Repeat after me: there won't be a European cavalry. Unless Hasbro finds a partner in the continent. If they are not doing it now, why not? Also South East Asia has a TON of rabid TF fans. What is Hasbro doing there? Probably pushing shitty Siege figures.

    If this thing fails, the only big baddie is Hasbro for misjudging the market.

    Of course, customs still have to be paid by the retailer.

    This is why I went with RK - I will ask them to declare Unicron around $180, high enough to avoid suspicion yet low enough that the $60 I'll pay in import fees is bearable.

    So this whole time we thought Unicron ate Lithone because he was evil, when it was just the munchies? Well that changes perspectives....

    Hey. Hey. I love Seige. Even if it is selling me voyagers at lesser prices. I am still a fan. Even if the later thing aggrevates me.

    I didn't say all Siege figures are crap. Some are though and Hasbro South East Asia are probably pushing those as opposed to Unicron. If Unicron is sold at the same price over there, I guarantee a minimum of 1000 orders easy spread across 5 or 6 countries.

    Oh the fact they haven’t opened crowdfunding to China and whatnot is just pants on head stupid. G1 is a big thing in that area and should double or triple the goal potentially.

    Hasbro should of had all these international options prepared at the start of the crowdfund. Hasbro actions reek of desperation, but at least we know that this Unicron will be made. Buy one before the deadline, I am guessing Zeta will push back there Unicron to at least next year if not until the haslabs one is shipped.

    I really hope this gets made. The count has stalled for the last couple of weeks with a slight uptick but time is running out. Will 2300 more people fund this in time? I'm not sure but I have a suspicion that it will get made even if the goal is not met. I wouldn't be surprised if Hasbro buys the remaining spots and then sells them later on pulse.

    So sin
    Literally this!!!

    Last time I checked was about 10 hours ago... just looked now, it's gone up by 2 backers.
    this has been run by children clearly.

    It's probably made in China... would logic not say "hmmmm lets store some in the warehouse next to the factory for local distribution in this region?"
    I didn't realize those regions actually have trouble getting this & thought Hasbro just wasn't adding on totals yet...
    This is a pretty bad PR disaster that Unicron doesn't deserve.

    I hope maybe a couple years after Unicron gets made, Hasbro makes a Haslab Primus to oppose him.
