    Heck, Unicron may save me some money in the long run - I’ll get someone to place him on my back and save me a few trips to the chiropractor.

    Why not get two of them to have one displayed and one for the back

    I’ll have a spare to sell you at a hefty mark-up once that regret kicks in.

    Also entirely possible, I was just pointing out that it looks like the screws were on the front at SDCC as well, and it's entirely possible that on the prototype that removing the plugs to swap the hands may have simply destroyed the plugs and there wasn't time to produce a new set just for the display. As long as the final product has the caps I'm good.

    Yeah, I wouldn't mind one bit if that were the shade of the final product.

    over 7k . Looks like there is a real shot this makes especially if 3rd party sellers have not logged their pre orders as of yet.

    So looking at these pictures, I think a lot of what we're seeing with Unicron's color is, as I suspected an artifact of the camera's sensor. Some of these pictures look like they are done in HDR mode, but they seem to all be having trouble picking up the orange/yellow properly. If you want another example of this, look at the red on Fortress Maximus's shins, which has a similar oversaturated effect. I'm willing to bet almost all of these pictures are taken on an iPhone X or a Samsung Galaxy / Note. Even that Hasbro one with Fortress Maximus looks like it's taken with a cellphone camera and not a good DSLR camera. The Supah-clear pictures thread here routinely has pictures of far higher fidelity.

    While he won't look terribly different, I have a feeling he will look meaningfully different to the naked eye.

    This is a fun little side story about what "true" color actually is i n pictures. It's entirely dependent on how the image is processed.

    It may be the angle, but from this picture one could assume that he's gonna be almost as wide as Fort Max and Metroplex standing side by side.
