    I love what you did here. Fixes one of the things that always bugs me about this figure (the inversion of plate/circle colors on the chest and pelvis)

    As someone who keeps unicron in bot mode, would the wing kit make sense for me?

    Edit: I looked a page back and I don't like what I see in bot mode. The connection to the shoulder looks wrong. Even with the hinges collapsed, it doesn't look good/sticks out too far

    Cell is not official... You can't really call it "The Chaos Bringer", since it's not "Unicron"...

    I prefer the original wings with tips in bot mode, but to me the planet mode looks so much better with the larger rings I ended up ordering those too. So I'll just use the set I prefer for either mode.

    Both have their strengths and weaknesses. It seems like a waste of any energy to care about this. You bought what you like, who gives a shit what someone calls what they like?

    (A few reviewers simply repeat marketing material)

    TFW: HaSlAbErS don’t call him just Unicron!!

    trust me, no one outside of reviewers who are trying to sound as if they are professionals, calls him by the marketing material stuff.

    If you don't ever plan to transform him, you don't need the upgrade wings. I've got mine in planet mode atm but will probably switch back to the original wings when he's in bot mode, because they're more properly curved - the upgrades have straight sections on 4 of the 6 "spines" which don't look great.

    I'm not sure if most people know this, but for the shoulder spikes, if you put them in the other way, they actually stay in a fixed diagonal angle so you don't have to go about repositioning them every time. It also makes lining them up a breeze.

    IMG_20210417_234343.jpg IMG_20210417_234338.jpg IMG_20210417_234337.jpg Just a question, are the 2 round side shoulder plate that supposed to have the outer ring con ected always drop down a bit due to the weight of ring?

    Even without ring, I can't make the round side shoulder plate to fully click on the upper arm.

    No, I don't have that issue. They're supposed to kinda lock into place softly via some tabs if I remember correctly.

    My tabs droop a bit. Im pretty sure a little Future/Polish will stiffen them up tho.

    I just havent bothered yet.
