    Considering how hollow the ring/wings look, i would sooner assume some kind of lighting add on kit rather than a brand new set of full blown wings.

    how i would do it would be gap fillers and clips that would fit in and around the gaps of the rings that have leds in them. hiding the wires might be the biggest issue but i can see it being done.

    Retailers are ordering for their own stock, and some collectors are buying multiples, so it isn’t being made 1:1 per customer.

    8227, jumped another 10 as I was typing. This shows Hasbro ain’t faking these numbers. If it were fake, they would’ve stopped after 8k and called it a night.

    Things like this are the reason I dislike crowdfunding. People shouldn't have to rabidly follow a near 1000 page forum thread to know they have a time limit to order. Just random situations like this screw people over who would otherwise support the project. I'm a happy backer through Hasbro but I hope all these etailer sites communicate better in the future or do something to help people still interested.

    I’m so glad I will be getting this figure (x3!) but now I really want the next TF Haslab to be a large scale Autobot City playset from the 86 movie that transforms to battle mode. Absolute dream for me!

    I mean yeah, for sure.

    And all these 3p companies would be stupid not to jump on making upgrades for this piece.

    I loved it when everybody was making shit for Metroplex.

    I'm sure Heisenberg will be all over it too.

    I'm betting we'll see at l;east 3 people tackling the hands alone.

    1 making fillers, one making hands without claws etc.

    it should have connection spots and areas that could look like missing buildings so that you could slot the autobot titans into it to expand the city. I'm not talking about shitty modular ramp clips thrown all over it, actual specific spots for the titans to be PART of the city.

    Now that we know that an undertaking on the scale of the Haslab Unicron is possible, i wonder if hasbro would be willing to look into actually releasing the G1 Unicron somehow. Like as a 40th anniversary project.

    I would have loved to back this project but at moment I just can’t afford it maybe in two years if they release a whole bunch I’ll buy him but either I’m glad to see this guy make the 8000 mark can’t wait to see this guy reviewed
