    Bought the Amazon Unicron recently - already having some minor regrets as I've really started paring down my collection to focus only on G1. But, was wondering, for those that have him (or the general mold for that matter), if he will look good with the G1 aesthetic (i.e., displayed with the movie characters)?

    Aesthetic-wise he looks fine, although he'll look small next to giants like G1 Galvatron and Ultra Magnus.

    Totally depends on how picky you are.

    I imagine he'd look fantastic besides a set of WST figures. The official ones are micro remolds of G1 figures, and are probably the best scale you could possibly get for Unicron.

    Personally, I dont think he goes well. Its too new looking a figure with the articulation unfitting of a G1 bot. Plus the lack of stickers, chrome, cool weapons, etc...

    But with G1 homage Classics, a perfect match.

    It'll look great with Legends,WST,and CHUG TFs but with G1 figures,Unicron is too modern to be with them.

    i agree

    Im sure its fine and all if YOU think it looks good, but in my opinion i'd much rather display my Unicron with my Classics-style TFs because they're all engineered pretty similarly. Having huge articulated plastic Unicron standing next to brick die cast 80s toys would make for a stark contrast IMO


    but like i said, its all how YOU like it. Its your collection after all :p

    Just display him with his legs perfectly straight and his arms straight out at a 90 degree angle with clenched fists and he will fit in perfectly :D

    He's too detailed to be with G1 figures.
    I have a seperate shelf for stuff like voyagers,leader class,supreme class, and ultra class and I have Cybertron Primus right there,waiting to face off Amazon Unicron but I'm not buying it.

    All I know is that it looks small when standing next to a bunch of first graders.
