    That turquoise colour is terrible. Ruins the whole figure.

    I\'m tired of this guy. Give us a new Unicron, at least as big as fort max.

    Wish the face wasn't just a blob of silver, but seeing as how I've never owned a Unicron and really want one I won't complain for now. I just hope it isn't more then $100.

    YES. We need a new and larger Unicron. I worry if it was Max's size it might suffer from the limitations of a titan class figure though.

    Loool. this x1000. this is probably what, the 2nd or 3rd G1-themed repaint of this guy? If they're making it a "Platinum" release at that price, at least remold a little of it. Sigh.

    Hmmm... Should I be content w/ the Armada Unicron I got from Botcon, or should I go after this guy?

    And is there anything to seporate this one from the last G1 version of this mold?

    Still got my beloved 2003 Armada Unicron, but damn if I don't want that art for my new computer background. Would look great on my laptop as a compliment to my desktop's Westworld Virtruvian Man logo splash.

    If I had the money I'd pick it up, it'd look better on my Classics shelf then the Armada one I have.

    I may have to bite on this, though it would be my fourth version of this mold....

    I saw the boxart, and started to drool.

    Then I scrolled down, and saw the ugly blue colors... and then I saw the price.

    Do not want!

    Box art looks great! The price, not so much. I'd even cave if it was... say... $75 usd. Not for this much, though. Sorry, Hasbro :(

    I missed out on the Amazon version and this looks like it'll do the job, but no way I pay MSRP for it. Especially since I have Armada Unicron currently on my shelves.

    It's funny, I sold mine so long ago that I remember it as being bigger than it actually was. There was a time Unicron was the largest figure I owned and it seemed gigantic. But if I still had Unicron now, seeing it standing next to my G1 reissue Fort Max or Generations Metroplex & Max, it would probably feel more like a tall Leader lol

    And I guess I'm in the minority, but I like this deco.
