    It's Unicron's head and wings as standard. An extra precaution to keep Hasbro from dropping the hammer on them again.

    I love the "Not for sale" plastered on the box and instructions ;)

    Probably a daft question, but does anyone know if the custom wing spikes work on the new, larger wings, or do you need a separate set?

    There's 2 different sets, one for the big wings and one for the originals.

    the black box is the first set for the small wings and the white box with the 2 on it fits the big wings

    Curses! I was thinking of upgrading to the bigger wings, but since I've missed the boat on the bigger wing tips, I guess I'll stick with the originals now. Wouldn't be the same without them.

    Thanks. :)

    Ebay:
    Someone was selling the ones for the bigger wings on ebay a bit ago and I scooped them up. No box though.
    edit: oh huh, just took it off and compared to the photos posted above and mine arent the same as HZ's set? Hmm. interesting

    anyway looks like HZ has another set in the pipeline

    Anyone else preordered Pumpkin Unicron from Show.Z in Canada and haven't received it yet? Mine is stuck in international shipping.

    I'm in the US, but mine has been stuck for a while now. It shipped via Yanwen and arrived in the US over 2 weeks ago but no update since then; pretty frustrating when figures I've ordered from ShowZ, Bombusbee and Robotoybase after Pumpkin have already arrived.

    Mine departed from Yanwen on August 2nd. No update since. Not even that it has arrived in Canada. I've received my Pumpkin upgraded wing last week. It makes for a sad display...

    Oh man, sorry to hear that! This definitely doesn't inspire any confidence with Yanwen shipping - I thought I read somewhere that they were more reliable, but I suppose not.
    Where did you purchase your Pumpking upgraded wing from? TCP still shows it's not in stock yet.

    Spikes that are not super sharp and made out of that slightly rubbery feeling plastic might be less likely to snap and less likely to injure the user too I would think. Speaking of rubber though - the rubbery inserts some 3rd party Devastators have on the hands would suit this mould as the palms of his hands look unfinished to me.

    I wonder if they thought about another repaint what it might be - Green ? or Energon colours ?

    ----------

    Omega Lock sold out of Pumpkin - so is there anywhere else in the UK that sells him ?
    I dread to think what the Chinese mail would do to one shipped on it's own (other than make it look like they'd been playing forklift soccer with it)
