    Yes for me the positive still outweighs the negative and will continue to back no matter the cost. People lets move forward not dancing back and forth :D

    Oh right I forgot about the giant backpack Unicron had back then, and his head sculpt looked better than the lifeless dull-faced HasLab Unicron does with his vacant, empty stare.

    So... yeah. A few minor inaccuracies with proportions while otherwise looking amazing makes up for the overpriced and worse-looking official one. :cool:

    Looking great but it seems we are in roughly the same situation as we were in before the extension time running out and more than 2,000 backers short. I shall keep an eye on this thread to see if it makes it or not.

    Gotta love all these, mature, well-behaved adults, arguing about which toy is better. Seriously guys, why can't you just buy which one you want, and let others buy which one they want? It's not that hard....

    And I thought it will not get even close to half of actual backers.

    Still this is just weak. Missing 2000

    I actually did get more and more excited for this and happy I decided to back it after placing the order. But now with numbers stagnant for so long, thinking about it now is just kinda sad since expectations have dropped and it's not looking like it'll happen. Dunno why I keep reading the thread either, certainly doesn't help with the negative outlook.

    I'd still really, really like for this to happen. Unicron was my most wanted item out of HasLab when it was announced. I'm just really shocked it's still not performing better so long after the extension.

    Fam, Get the PS4 Pro, There's no reason why THIS should stop you. Why waste time on Unicron when you'll just get bored/regretful about it in a few months.

    It's Zeta's fault. I am certain of it.

    I'm super stoked for this guy! When I first saw the original movie, I thought he was the coolest bad guy ever! Still do. He always had a better menacing presence than a lot of other characters. I know some people seem to be getting discouraged over time but it's having the opposite effect for me. I really want this guy to happen!

    To be honest, the people who heavily criticized Haslab Unicron weren't going to back him anyway. I suspect their presence here is because none of the other threads they check are updating and they're bored.

    Unicron was always lifeless and dull-faced; his mouth didn't even articulate when he spoke. I'd rather have a backpack and some extra kibble if it means an overall figure that actually resembles the character its based on.

    Wow! Look awesome. And I guess this proves he can do poses without the stand. :D 
    Really, really want this toy now.
    Is it me, or there seem to be raised parts below his knees? Was that always there? Seems like it can open up.

    I wonder how much of this is a sort of self-fulfilling prophecy. People who are cancelling their orders are perhaps doing so after seeing the numbers stagnating, so they think it's not going to meet the target anyway and cancel their order. People who are on the fence about backing see the numbers going down and decide not to back. Repeat cycle.

    This is an incredible low point for Hasbro and Takara. Unicron's not succeeding because all this 80s wank is getting super old and annoying to a bizarre level, there are many kinds of TF toys we could be getting updates of right now like G2, TFP, Animated, or Beast Machines but we get this prick instead.
