    Google translate: Everything is difficult at the beginning, everything starts from the head.

    IMO this is very probably the 40'' Unicron that designer Arturo Milomir teased earlier this year on FB ;)

    That looks pretty damn good, I hope they can rework the planet eating mouth though, that's really the only thing the Haslab one does better.

    Proof that Zeta needs to stick to Combiners.

    Love the bot mode, planet mode could use some serious improvement. Ring should be bigger, misses the spikes on the side of the planet and needs an actual mouth instead of whatever that cut pizza shape is supposed to represent.

    TBF those 3D renders don't look like they transform at all.

    Nope. not at all.

    Pathetic attempt at trolling HasLab Obviously. I'm calling it now. That FB post is a Shit Post. not real at all.

    OH, I have no doubt the head is real. But that's it. And I'll put money on it that they made it to replace the head on the HasLab Unicron all because they saw some people hating on it.

    Okay so here's the thing, I actually don't want a 3P company to try to compete with the haslab one. I want it to be funded so that Hasbro knows they can of cool stuff like this with the transformers fanbase. Plus, if something 3P could be directly linked to the failure of the haslab one we could finally see a 3P crackdown

    I'm indifferent towards both the Haslab or Zeta Unicron since i don't plan on buying them anyway but i wouldn't mind a battle damaged Unicron head bust for a decent price (I know there's a couple out there in the market but not really within my budget) just as a novelty display.

    So, looking at the shots of the 3d model it basically looks like a shoddy attempt to Upgrade the pre-existing (dated at this point) Armada Unicron Mold.

    The planet mode looks like two halves of a shell clamped together.

    The unicron bot mode back has the same massive grooves on it's back that the planet shell has on top.

    As for those trash wings, look closely at those swiveled parts at the top. exactly the same as Armada Unicron's wings. even the way they are oddly shaped. Has Zeta sunk to a low point? They look to be taking the Wei-Jiang approach and about to make a super Up-scaled Retooled Custom version of the Armada Unicron. complete with new feet. It literally looks like shells though that snap onto the pre-existing Armada toy. I could be wrong. but hey, It's just my observational opinion. :)

    The 3D renders look good so far. I’m sure they won’t be the final renders. For a first time attempt to try, they can do a lot with the design with the final renders. Hope they can follow through with this.

    Funny how people seem okay with a 40" inch tall Unicron but they are crying about the size and cost of the HasLab one.

    Very odd indeed.

    How much you really think a 40 inch Unicron from a company that sells 400-500 dollar Combiner teams is going to go? and those just fit in his hand supposedly.

    This is that phase I call Delusions and Denial. :lol 

    Ya'll are nuts. That Unicron will be 800 bucks at the least 1000 at the most. maybe even 1500.
