    Good lord. It was just recently posted in the Siege War For Cybertron appreciation thread a few minutes ago by user @Jtprime17

    B2D44A82-4773-46B5-8824-EBBF8E7C25B1.jpeg E2926613-3181-4341-B348-27C633267ECF.jpeg 4F4331A6-6B5A-49FC-B626-89A428D612BB.jpeg 523DE3BE-496B-45DF-8920-BA27F910F9D9.jpeg 3617D61B-ADA6-4B71-A65F-2A1132812732.jpeg

    This guy prices at almost 600$. I wonder how big he is in scale to the other figures? This must be a SDCC reveal.

    Wow. Okay, I'm impressed.
    Just wish it were a bit bigger. It's pretty much Metroplex-sized.

    Its not. The video says its 27" inches tall so bigger than Megtroplex. The moving mouth on planet mode is insane so watch that video.

    Well, not much bigger than Metroplex.
    I really like the look and am almost considering it, but it's more or less just a show piece. There is NOTHING that scales with it to make it playable, unlike the Sail Barge set that worked with actual figures.

    This is so much more worth it than the $700 Snake mountain from Super 7.

    Legends figures but with the city bots, no either way. If it was bigger, it would be 1K cost and a lawn decoration at that point.

    Good point.
    They should have micro figures that go along with it. Do some 28mm characters of Galvatron and Rodimus that showcase Unicron's size. That'd be cool.

    $600?
    Way outside of my disposable income. Looks awesome as hell though.

    Glad hasbro/takara are able to do things like this,makes me wonder what other wonderful things could be in the pipeline.

    I know you can’t do a model curved trim with him because it’s basically his size again but a deception and junkion ship to hover around him with little clear rods that use the attachment points for weapon effects would be rad!

    Hm worried that this $600 item won't have kid-friendly play value, and that this character who turns into literally a planet won't be properly scaled

    The sail barge has play value and scales with actual released figures.

    So, it's crowdfunded, which is totally cool, but I've only backed a couple crowdfunded products but with different companies. My worry is that the only way to get this is by backing the project on Pulse? My contention is that there's no feesable way for me to pull that payment off by Aug. 31st. Which is definitely first world problems, I just worry this is the only avenue there will be to get it if it gets funded. I would absolutely love this, it is gorgeous, anyone have any idea if it'll be available outside of that funding date? Couldn't find any info on the listing page if it would be stocked afterward.

    If it doesn’t get funded it won’t get made. If you don’t back it you won’t get one.

    I’m not familiar with the character. Is he significant?
