    I just watched a review of the hasbro unicron with no sound and the whole time the badgers song was going through my head, except instead of "badgers" it was "panels".

    Panels panels panels panels panels panels panels panels panels panels panels panels RUBBER SPIKE STRIPS

    True story.

    Indeed. I might eat crow later but this just screams ridiculous to me. While the OP can be forgiven, man some of you guys need to put aside your "wants and desire" emotions and put on your logic caps. One guy posts something a friend sent to him (that no one can really verify) and suddenly it becomes a fait accompli. I bet you totally believed it too when your friend's friend's cousin bought that new Nintendo/Air Jordans/Masarati for like $10 when he went to Japan/Saudi Arabia/Europe.

    Its a ridiculous idea but a man can hope.

    Explaining it to the wife may however be... problematic.

    I barely look in the 3p boards so I might get something wrong but I saw this floating around. Can anyone confirm this or is this a shitpost?

    This was posted a few pages back. The answer is we don't know for sure just yet...

    Though I have to wonder if those larger wings/rings that were floating around last month aren't actually the wings/rings for the oversized version?

    This right here. All day and all night!
    Don't know where the hell I'd put it... But dammit I'd find a place!

    With the diameter of the planet mode needing to be quite a bit bigger for a 24" bot, I would think there is no way the larger wings could fit it.

    Zeta teased their Unicron just as HasLab was crowdfunding theirs, Hasbro turned their attention to Zeta, and Zeta immediately just vanished and weren't heard from for a long time. When their Unicron resurfaced much later, it wasn't even sold under the Zeta brand. So, I am EXTREMELY doubtful that Zeta would start teasing a new version of Unicron at the same time as the HasLab Unicron starts making news due to review videos and due to finally shipping.

    I just bit the bullet on this guy. Scale doesnt bother me since it'll never be correct, so might as well have one that fits reasonably on my shelf.

    I bought both unicron’s. I am so pissed the scale is off with my masterpieces. They looked so much bigger on my phone:confused:

    The scale is off? You knew it was 18" right? Should this be blue text?

    I bought both. I doubt I’ll be 100% satisfied with either, but that’s ok.

    Hope not. Cell is a pain in the arse at normal size. Oversized, it’d just be a suicide machine.

    my hope is for one of the ballsy “4th party” upscalers to turn haslab Unicron into a 48” tall bot with better panel hiding in the transformation. Won’t happen, especially with today’s shipping issues, but it’d be nice. Cell is an ok toy, just looks way too soft and isn’t remotely fun to transform.

    Why would Hasbro care at this point? They've made their money, sales are no longer in question.

    It was borderline between 'shoulda been blue text' or you were one of these muppets that had higher expectations of 17.74"

    I think that is fake, because that photo is old. Except for the text about 'we hear you...' if Studio Cell wanted to make a big announcement like this, they would want to use a cool new image, and i dunno, use chinese text?

    From what I can tell, most if not all retailers are sending you 2 boxes when you order. A box with the main figure (without a head) and a box with the head and wings.
