    Interesting, but I'll pass. It's Unicron-ish enough with the current rings.

    they are bigger but only slightly, but to me they are the equivalent of Super Girl's Cape vs. superman's cape in that they are super short.

    Unicron's wing tips should just be shy of touching the ground. they still look goofy here.

    that looks way better there.

    If I get a second for alt mode, I would suspend it from the ceiling. Or make a stand out of clear acrylic.

    IMO the stock rings are good as is. Actually makes the planet mode look bigger with the smaller rings.

    i was thinking the exact same things about the surface updates, different colored panels on each side, and the upscaling! a few more things i would add:

    - kind of along the lines of updating the surface detailing, but adding more panel lining to it as well
    - updated face to be more movie accurate
    - update collar to have actual claws for the planet mode mouth instead of a ring of pizza slices.

    so the new rings will require you to display his planet mode sideways? haha. i don’t like how the robot mode wing tips are straight instead of following the curvature.

    i regret selling my core star, and was wanting to buy another until i saw that he’s sold out for under. $400. im hoping that studio cell will actually update this mold with the changes mentioned above, as that’d be an easy cash grab for them, and most likely would be different enough to be purchased again by existing core star owners.

    No, do you have the link or know which page off hand, that Haslab thread is huge... (if not, no worries, don't want you to have to work towards answering my question).

    Search for posts in the past 3 weeks by Holyculture, because that was who posted it first (only time?)

    Makes me wonder if the Malaysian wing spikes will be compatible with the new rings. - I find the spikes more important for the perfect toon look but would not mind upgrading the wings too.

    If displayed in Planet Mode, I would also suspend from the ceiling. :thumb

    No problem. I actually found them in the Transformers subreddit. I don't know if Holyculture is the same person who posted it over there. But whoever it was on reddit also posted a few more pictures.

    And then one to show that everything is held on by 5 total clips.
