damn i hate this because i already have the most amazing light up eyea already for my uni.
but at the same time i really fucking like this kit. i think i am in 100%
But how does it look when the lights are off?
This makes Unicron look like a joke. Spend so much money and there still is an upgrade kit.
Careful, I made the mistake of saying it should have electronics years ago when it was still funding and the Hasboys came after me with pitchforks.
Hopefully this kit is reasonably priced and not priced at “you had money for unicron, buy this kit for 50$”
Optional light up eyes make him look like a joke and not that MPM-12 Optimus who is getting upgrade kits that replace half the fucking figure?
Eh no thanks, no electronics or batteries inside a toy this expensive. I took out my Amazon Unicron, and the button-batteries in his arm started to not leak, but expand, warping and almost breaking the plastic battery cover in his wrist. And the light still worked over the years - even worked this way - so I assumed the batteries were OK! I don\'t need to to happen to a toy\'s head that\'s worth 1200$ now.
Considering the cost of Unicron it should not have had to have any upgrades and yes the MPM-12 Optimus situation is worse lol. Your right. This is still bad though. Like c'mon.
Like cmon what? This is the most minimal upgrade you can get. And it’s a preference one to. Plenty of people don’t like light up eyes. You can always upgrade a figure with random wires or lights shoved into it. Is MPM-03 a cheap embarrassment because it didn’t have light up headlights? These guys added those in.
This is in no way bad lol. It’s just shoving lights wherever they can, in no way improving the figure.
This is the first dumb light upgrade thing I'll ever buy from them. This actually makes sense.
I understand the spirit of what you are saying, but there are upgrade kits for almost everything.
I totally agree that Hasbro should have just included LEDs in the first place, but you can't judge a figure's quality by the fact that someone else decided it needed an upgrade kit.
I need an education please.
That is the movie Bumblebee Optimus Prime, correct?
What is the bad situation with that?
I'm holding out for the upgrade kit to make him taller.
The fact that both of the 2 upgrade kits coming out are basically replacing half the figure.
This is probably the closest I\'ll come to owning haslab unicron
I'm not immediately certain such extensive changes are needed, but that's not the scope of this topic.
IMO Hasbro now absolutely sucks at designing, painting, and making figures because they have become greedy flawoholics. Always with the flaws, lack of paint, using the wrong shade of paint (it's always to dark, to light, the wrong shade, and if it's just right, they intentionally leave it off of the important parts!). I feel like Hasbro's philosophy now is: A better version is always coming tomorrow, so the version that gets put out today, needs to have noticeable, annoying flaws (Like Bumblebee MPM's truck mode cat ears!).
IMO some 3P companies like DNA are getting wise to how Hasbro is intinchaly flawing it's figures, and are starting to skip the gap fillers, smaller upgrades, & fixes, in favor of the complete redesign of the entire figure itself, fixing all the flaws with the design, paint, and doing everything right in one go! This will also give us collectors the option to skip over all six of the coming flawed Hasbro versions, ultimately saving us a tone of money!
This is most likely only the beginning, I expect DNA, and others like it to start heavily redesigning & painting entire sections of Hasbro figures regularly.
Eventually redesigning, and completely replacing the flawed Hasbro figures with the fixed definitive DNA version of the figures, will completely take the place of upgrades all together (Like how DNA did with Wheelie).
If Hasbro continues with it's strange design choices, and flawing of figures, eventually this is what will be said, every time Hasbro puts out a new MP or Generations figure:
"Oh what Hasbro is putting out a new figure, well I'll just hold out for the definitive DNA version that we all know is coming, because I know it will be done right the first time!"
now tell us about pepe silvia
