    Someone said that they read these posts. Do y'all really not want them released or what?

    I think the Shuttle should be bigger in order to scale with the minifigures or maybe the minifigures should be smaller?

    I wasn't really saying it as a bad thing, it just shows that that Hasbro can create a chocking hazard if it's what the fans want.

    It's not a choking hazard if it can be easily swallowed. These look about the size of Tylenol pills so it shouldn't be a concern.

    This is being released no matter what at this point. I wouldn't worry.

    I thought working on my Transformers and losing a screw in the carpet was an issue. Those look like a grain of rice o_O

    Ah, I do remember seeing it detached. Think I was hoping for a mini Revenge to go on there...

    As a backer I'm hoping like mad that this gets funded, but that Galvatron and Hot Rod are no way in scale. They should be like grains of sand to have any chance of being in scale. Also I can't see the extra articulation in the hands and am disappointed that the fingers can't splay outwards like on the latest large 3P figures. That would lend some useful extra expression as I feel Unicron's hands are a major expressive part of his character as they reach out to claw at Cybertron.

    and a bunch of retailers are yet to put in orders. In the Unicron thread theres interestingly even a source that says 1 site alone has around 900 orders that are yet to be added.

    So some observations I made almost instantly.

    This particular Prototype is a bit different in minimal ways compared to the first one that way saw during SDCC.

    It's most def a different prototype. It's like they went back and fixed a few things. The fingers for instance. The have more points of articulation in this Prototype than the one shown at SDCC.

    Also, they made an Autobot Space Shuttle but not Galvatron's Ship? that's a bit strange.

    I'm going to try to spend the next few days comparing photos from both Prototypes though. because I know I see some differences for sure.

    The hole at the top of the chest for instance. It used to be just some super deepass hole. Now it's got a red bit in there to fill it up.

    They seem like they might be about as big as the little "Genericons"(as I call them) that came with the TYCO Transformers Train Set.

    Having now seen Unicron in person while planet mode is beautiful there are too many issues in bot mode such as expose screw holes on one side of the arms/ legs.Parts look like they will break if you look at them wrong. With that no order from me.
