    Not really. The thickness of the walls does not need to double. It can have a lot more hollow spaces. The weight need not go up by 8x. It can be much less than that. WeiJiang has already proven that a 25" Omega Supreme can be made with amazing pose-ability and reasonable weight for a small price tag.

    If Zeta's unicron was the same size or larger than Hasbro's I would not be buying it. It's because of the smaller scale/pricetag that I will be supporting both companies. I'm actually wishing it was up for pre-order already.

    Speaking of pre-order, where will you guys be purchasing your zeta unicron? Or who is your go to for zeta transformers? I was debating bbts.com but being a newbie I figured I should ask if there is a better option.

    It is up for pre-order already at Show.Z.

    Who doesn't want a small Unicron? One of the main characteristics of Unicron that stuck with me all these years is his smallness, especially relative to other bots.

    Well as I said I'm buying both. As it is I have limited space but could not pass on a unicron. But 2 large bots? I just can't do it. I live in a condo. And as far as show z I saw it up for po there but as a general rule I do not pre-order something without knowing full price first.

    i'm sure with the amount of toys they make hasbro don't pay as much as a third party would for their plastic (but could be wrong )

    Yeap, besides making Core Star as an affordable alternative to the Haslab that was also there aim as well a giant transformer thats stable and fun to mess with. But I cant wait to see the transformation vids of this figure.

    "Alice is the straight man" Dang! That just boggles the mind. My interpretation of these enigmatic words: it seems to be some kind of gay phychology. Why this conclusion?
    1. Alice is a biological female. Yet she is being called a man. Thus this could mean that the gay guy sees the woman, his wife, as his man.
    2. The term "straight" is in fact a modern term created by lgbtq people that referred to hetero people. It seems geometrical. Perhaps the metaphor emphasizes how hetero people followed a straight mentality of orientation; while the homo people seemed to deviate from this straightness from a hetero point of view?

    What the hell does any of this have to do with a 3rd party Unicron? Is the planet-eater having some gender identity issues I was unaware of?

    A comedy duo is called a double act. It consists of the "comic" and the "straight man" the terms predate all this modern social nonsense you're trying to foist on them.

    Whoa from those dark images, this thing looks amazing. Way more wicked looking in bot mode already than that friendly neighborhood Haslab version. Hope this comes out in Dec 2019 without a hitch.

    That would be the cause of this tragic condition right here.

    Considering Zeta seems to just churn out gigantic bricks I think they should be safe. Zeta and others do not have to adhere to the same safety and inspection standards as Hasbro as well. Lego's incredible prototype designs usually get shafted for this very same reason.

    Ultima Guard is a work of art though. Could afford him by just not eating lunch for like a week.

    It's not hugely fair to put Wei Jiang's omega at 25" when a huge part of that is the design of the wings. Head height he's smaller than both fanstoys and dx9 who are around the 21" mark

    Zeta could make their unicron 30" if they just angle the wings upwards... Doesn't change anything about the following figure but will tick the ours is bigger than yours is box if they wanted to play that game
