    I recall they were saying they kind of liked the smooth prototype. I like it too. My big issue with this piece is I want more paint, a different face and less panel junk from the back and legs. I'd pay a lot more if it had those things.

    I wish they could start over with the grey prototype and go for a more mp toon look, less siege wfc.

    Unicron had tons of detail in the movie though.

    In his face? Did he have panel kibble on his legs and back? We can't always go exactly like the toon because those close up details while he's transforming or someone is falling down his body is not what we see from afar.

    I wish they would go off the grey proto and offer two styles, one more subtle, then I could live with the kibble

    The panel lines might be better if it had paint in many places, just seems like they put paint on his face and chest to say it's painted. It's nice, just more in line with WFC than MP and that's my hang-up, I collect MP but am asked to crowdfund a retail toy level release. Ultimately it will end up being an expensive fill in and 8000 or more pieces is not limited run Bobby!

    Holy He** but HasLab Unicron has to be the Most Detailed figure I have seen to date,but the magic #8000 for this to even be considered seems almost impossible considering the pricetag of $575,but hearing this thing weighs a whopping 19 pounds is insane,good I mean.But still two things concerns me about this and they are:

    1.If this does reach the minimum of 8000 will this go into production or have they already made these?,and if they haven\'t how long before the people who PO this actually recieve theirs.
    2.Again about preorders but will customers be able to make payments like $100 a month till paid for or will it be one whole cash (I mean credit/debit card) payment,as I can\'t pay that much at one time.

    1) This has not been produced yet. They've done the in-house rapid prototyping, which is what you see here. But they need 8000 buyers to even bother starting up the factory, and these won't ship until early 2021.
    2) Not via HasLab, but some retailers like BBTS and TFSource are offering this for pre-order as well, with their pay-later business models. The catch is that they're acting as middle-men on this, and don't get their usual wholesale pricing, so overall you pay a significant markup (an extra ~$200). However, being able to set aside a little bit of money every month to eventually afford the ~$800 bill in 1.5 years might be less burdensome then trying to come up with $600 in one month, so that's your call to make.
