    That hasn’t been the main driver for me, but finally having the biggest Transformer will be a great “nice to have” for my collection. I had Omega, Metroplex, Trypticon and Scorpinok as a child... but no Fortress Maximus, he’s the one that got away. When the generations Metroplex and Fortress Maximus came out, they didn’t really appeal to me and definitely didn’t warrant buying for size alone. But this big beautiful guy... he is something special, and it will be great to own such a cool recreation of a epic character and the biggest Transformer to date.

    Unicron currently stands at 27.2 inches, my biggest acrylic case that I made years ago... 27.5 inches. Ugh, I just vomited in my mouth. Thank you, younger self, who made the case just big enough for bot mode... sorry pacific rim toys, I will find you a new home.

    Would butterfly pea lemonade work ?
    I have yet to find it in my country. But this drink changes color depending on the pH.

    Last update from my friend. They are transmitting all 943 of their orders as I am typing this. Hasbro turned the counter off until all 3rd party and final days of affiliates orders have been added. We should see the final number late tonight or sometime tomorrow morning. It’s expected to be over 9300 but with a lot of last minute orders still coming in on Pulse it does have a chance for 10k.

    The company itself invested at the last time moment. Why hide it?)

    I wanted FM for more than just size. I wanted the leader of the Headmasters and wanted Spike represented in my collection. Personally I like the Titan figures and am happy with them. Can't wait for Scorponok to join Trypticon. Yeah I agree that Unicron is something else.

    I'm more worried about the depth personally, particularly the planet mode on the stand.

    Boo on Hasbro. I understand why they did it but it's boring that they've put the counter at "8,000+". What's the highest number anyone saw before they changed it?

    Just bought mine, thanks to my mom. I’m closing on a house next month and had to keep credit clean but she was gracious enough to help me with this. So excited for this monstrosity!

    If they were going to lie, they wouldn't have given the extension - they would have just fudged the numbers and been done with it.

    Hell, if they were that committed to making it no matter what, why even HasLab it? Just announce, "We're making Unicron." like they would any other figure.

    Toy dojo sent an email announcing that they are done taking orders and people have till early Monday morning to cancel before the deposit is final. looks like they'll be submitting orders fairly soon.

    (also email confirmed those in the US have free shipping. something tfsource confirmed they wouldn't do even though its on their site.)

    Well, whatever the case, and despite my intense disappointment at the NYCC reveals, I'm still really happy for the community. I'm in the process of starting a family right now, so there's no way in all the 9 realms I could justify paying this much for a big glorious hunk of planet destroying plastic, lol. Even so, I'm happy for us fans! Looking forward to seeing peoples photos, and perhaps one day, the destroyer will grace my shelves.

    I believe he is trying to imply some sort of conspiracy theory that Hasbro fudged numbers.
