    I knew this was always gonna happen, especially given the fact it's was already a complete figure few months back.

    So glad I still got my preorder for it.

    Either another company comes up with an affordable giant Unicron head within the next months - or this guy will be mine. I really like the colours. Guy looks great!

    Great to see this guy back again but I hope they took on board some of the feedback and made the rings/wings bigger.

    More than the figure, I'm impressed how ZT, I mean, 01-Studio attempts to avoid stepping on Hasbro's toes -- again.

    Is it a planet? No, it's a cell. (Any resemblance is coincidental.)

    Does it have rings? No, so it's not Unicron.

    Most important of it, it is headless. (Face is very distinct.)

    It's like they consulted with a lawyer...

    Looks great. Glad it is still in progress. Price is around 250?

    i wish people would stop using "not" with third party products it actually grates on me it's something that got old quick and most don't use it anymore

    that tiny rant out the way this looks great in colour :)  the planet mode is still not that great but the robot mode looks fantastic

    Might be because Haslab Unicron has been successfully backed, Hasbro does not give a damn about this now

    Nope, it bugs the crap out of me as well. I'm all over this figure though. Don't really care about the planet mode deco as it'll spend all of its time in robot mode in a separate display with one each of my Galvatron, Cyclonus and Scourge figures (scale be damned). I'm assuming it still comes with the head and wings though!

    Zeta got burned from piggybacking on the Haslabs bandwagon. Wonder if jumping now on the virus bandwagon could lead to the same dead end.

    This could be the first 3P to go viral (harhar) since the media is crazy for coronavirus related news. "In other news Bob; not satisfied with giving the world Coronavirus, China is now giving us now Coronavirus toys".

    Just one half assed journalist following the bread crumbs would get to Hasbro and then it's "A transforming killer virus toy robot, has Hasbro's Transformers property gone too far?"... And then Hasbro would be, again, needing to bring Zeta down a peg...

    Just saying :D

    I'm hoping the same! I pre-ordered Core Star on showzstore the second I saw the "inevitable" thumb click picture come up!
