    It would be an awesome Christmas miracle if they were to announce that they are going to release it in January 2020! Fingers crossed!!

    That's a stupidly ambitious timeline, even without the potential shelving of this project.

    You could have said the same thing without the S word. Someone's not in the Christmas spirit...

    I just really want this to come out. I don't want my deposit back and won't ask for it back, I want them to take my money for a core star christmas miracle. Core star regardless if it comes out or not, really is pretty cool and worth a small lost investment if it does disappear.

    To be fair, this isn't your typical "3p announces something and then doesn't give you updates for years", they actively removed every mention of this project from their social media. I don't remember similar cases in the recent past.

    It's cause they were getting bothered by Hasboro when they were trying to sell their Unicron kickstarter. This will likely reappear again when the heat dies down

    I wish they'd released actual painted shots of him. I know we have Digi bashes but I was really interested to see what they did with his colors in planet mode.

    Supposed to be 18” I believe, so shorter than their combiners. Main reason I bought haslab’s was size. Still, even with zetas being smaller I hope it comes back, cause it looked like it would be fun to mess with.

    Are there any preorders that indicate his price as opposed to a deposit?

    Well, technically zeta did say the estimate was around $200 in China. But yeah, Showz updating the listing at all seems to indicate the project thankfully isn't dead.

    Was just looking for the hasbro unicron’s release date ... and the Haslab site says it closed at 12000+ orders, with the original target of 8000. I seem to remember there being serious doubt as to whether it would fund up to say, the last few weeks of the already-extended campaign... apparently I’m remembering that quite incorrectly, congrats to them...

    that was all fake haslab created drama. they had funding the first time with the 3p vendors who were in that massive purchase group.

    but i guess they wanted a stronger turn out from the actual fans.
