    Robot mode looks great. Wings need to be beefed up and made longer tho. And the 18.5" scale seems on the small side, 24" would rock.

    Now I'm getting curious. Where's this scene from?

    When I saw what they did with the Aerialbots I knew that Zeta is able to achieve some amazing and cool transformations. So I knew that if someone might pull something like this they were the people for the job.
    But I do agree with some (who blame the plastic used) that their tolerances are going to have to be on the money and joints are going to have to have just the right tightness on top of every single movable piece tabbing into something in order for this to work at this size.

    And 24 inches.

    If you look carefully, you can see parts of the planet surface on the torso, calves, feet, shoulder pads, arms.

    Fucking molasses...I didnt want a Unicron until now....I need to hang him over the display cabinets....Damn you Zeta....I WILL RESIST.

    BTW I cant also resist:

    "We want a toon accurate Unicron!Zetas is 99% accurate but it doesnt have planet bits in robot mode."
    "But Unicron didnt have planet bits in the toon"
    "Yeah but he has a vampire colar."
    "It had also one in the toon"
    "Ill take the scarab shell of Haslab and I run out of excuses"
    "Ok....."

    Remember: Nobody CARES what you will buy, ergo you dont need to come up with foolish excuses. Buy what the heck you want and be happy with it.

    Most of the robot mode surface is incorporated into the planet surface. Strangely enough the shoulders seem to have the most panel collapsing.

    I fully expect that the arms and legs will explode into hinges during transformation. The thighs and torso seem to be the only solid pieces aside from a few panels.

    It’s not difficult to imagine this getting oversized at some point.

    I'm guessing toolings are already pressed, but they've gotta fix that planet's pizza maw. I can't unsee it.

    This comparison is hilarious! I wonder how many cancellations HasLab will get?

    yeah i would be more inclined to get this. I think the size will be more enjoyable to play with and handle. This looks great. And that bot mode, dayum!

    Mmm, some, but probably not a huge amount. The Haslab figure is a spectacle. It's huge. Its wings alone will take up the space of another titan class figure. It has lights and I believe sounds.

    Zeta's a space filler. It does its job extremely well for the size it is.

    I think if you want to have the biggest TF figure ever, or the most feature-packed Unicron, then you're gonna stick with Haslabs.

    I think most of Zeta's sales will be people that were intrigued by the idea of a good, modern Unicron figure, but not interested in the huge price tag at Haslabs.

    No electronics at all in the HasLab one. The Zeta one however, does have LEDs.

    I only see One Unicron in that pic. I came so close to ordering the Haslab when the funding time increased and I'm so glad I held off. Bigger wings/rings and a tiny Galvatron would be great, but I will be getting this regardless.
