    If they made it bigger we would probably have trypticon problems anyway, because you'd need really fricking strong springed ratchet joints to maintain integrity on a meter high unicron figure with the die cast you'd need to throw in to give it proper structural integrity. I'm having a hard enough time finding a torso for my g1 shockwave that hasn't been split open by the springs in his shoulder joints breaking the screw posts in half

    I saw Unicron avalible for order on Kapow around 10 am. Then the site crashed. It is an official crowfunding so it should be avalible just as long as any other site.

    You know there is now going to be a Youtube video of someone taking a newly shipped Unicron and absolutely destroying it by using it as a sledgehammer...just because they could... and the RAGE posts that will follow!

    If that's how someone wants to spend their $600, then all the power to them. Can't hate 'em too much if they contributed to the 8000 goal to let me have mine.

    It slides down during the transformation. Unfortunately not up and out as some would hope. Though someone will surely be able to mod it do so.

    I'm still not convinced that any of these convention floor images are folding up the backpack correctly. The latest ones obviously have the teeth splayed way out which is wrong, but the shells look like they pack together a bit better.

    Said that a while back, it seems like it's removable in some way.

    At 7286 now. Previously there were some hypotheticals presented about this crowdfunding stalling between 7500-7999.
    Now that we have a situation to observe, I think the most likely scenario is that momentum will not allow such a unique situation

    I wonder if this is confirmation that this is their full suite of bonuses (not that I'm complaining).

    Just took some more pictures of Unicron though I imagine there are plenty in this thread already. I was surprised at how small Galvatron and Rodimus are.

    Yeah they 100% haven't collapsed that backpack to its full compression. The two plates at the very top of the backpack are supposed to be so tight they lay horizontal. How do those photos compare to the real color? Is it pretty much yellow IRL? Also nice behind the head shot so we can see the eye slider.

    Brandon at Chosen Prime confirmed that Chosen Prime hasn't given Hasbro their numbers yet. I'm assuming if they haven't, then the other American retailers haven't either and those numbers should help push it over.

    Thank you for not using flash and letting the details and shadows keep their integrity. Awesome pics!

    Well BBTS and ThechosenPrime are waiting for the last day to submit theirs. I'm pretty sure TFSource is also. I dont know about Robot Kingdom... ........... but BBTS , TCP and TFS are going to be 1500-2000 orders right there.


    I saw Astrotrain52 popped his head back in some pages back........ the fact this is going to get backed must really irk him since he swore it wouldnt even make it close.
