double u tee eff to Unicron. What the hell? Does he have normal arms, I mean hands?
I actually like his alt-mode. Looks like ROTF voyager megatron, but different :p

The combined mode doesn't look like a combined mode at all, just shoulderpads and a cape of divided limbs. That's going to look horrible.

Anyway, can't pass up a Unicron.

I dearly hopeso that Hasbro makes that Beast Wars Unicron, or that they make a non-electronic cheap version of the True G1 Unicron!!!!!

But for now, I'll settle with WFC/FOC Arcee, why isn't she in FOC???? High Moon, DLC Arcee pleaszzze, she was great in Escalation.

Unicron looks like a mess of sticks just thrown everywhere. Not sure that combined mode is that great either. :MAXIMAL:

Unicron's pretty strange but I still like it. It looks like he only vaguely combines with Prime & Megatron, so maybe he'd combine with FE Prime too? I'll probably just combine him with Megatron anyway, if at all. Although, I really hope Hasbro releases him and Ironhide... ALL the so-far Takara-exclusives. $60 Voyagers are just too much for me.

Oh, and MP Soundwave needs to be in my life.

No Fembots in FOC. The customization system doesn't allow those kind of parts to fit in.

Yea I notced that later and wasn't fully sure how complete the arms are on all sides. Thats so crap if its just the front side and the back side is flat and/or hollow. Oh well, money saved.

strangely, I think Unicrom would have looked good...or better at least...with the Hasbro light-up gimmick.some translucent orange plastic and some red LED could have made that look pretty cool. Bot mode is actually not bad. I do like the design of him. get a very Final Fantasy sort of vibe off him. alt mode is pants and the combined mode is pants and a jacket. ;) his micron looks interesting. is it a rock that becomes a squirrel?

Ill bet you anything that hasbro wont be able to release unicron in the states because the giant horns on the sholders will be a safety hazard and if they do the horns will be drasticly shortend.

Does that mean that Optimus Prime becomes Optimus Philo and Megatron becomes MeGunge when they combine with Unicron? :P

If that were really the case, then Hasbro would simply round off the tips of the horns. This figure simply doesn't fit into Hasbro's toy aesthetics and is too costly to properly adjust to match it (so they say).

And a similar case to why we will never have a Fortress Maximus reissue here. :sad:

But even then... If Hasbro was smart, they would create a Unicron figure that represents him before he appeared on PRIME. As in give the fans a Unicron toy for their collection, while making something that pre-dates the series. :-?

Actually, FM is a victim of updated Toy Safety Laws; he now fails the so-called Drop Test.

Breakdown, Unicron and Jet Vehicon have such an amount of plastic that they would be right in between two of Hasbro's standard price points for regular retail. They'd have to be exclusives for them to be released in the US, where price points don't apply as much. But considering that releasing unique molds as exclusives is rarely done (once per line at the most), I'd estimate the chances of that rather slim.

I know.And I call bull on their behalf as they could also have considered putting out the Transformers Jr. version. :P

But with this figure, it is another safety hazard. Appearance-wise, they would have to severely shave down the portions that could injure reckless kids and stupid adults. :lol:

Seriously, though... I would not be surprised it Hasbro and Takara Tomy had discussed in advance who will do what molds, how they will handle their lines, and more when it comes to stuff like this. So when it came to Breakdown and Unicron, Takara Tomy is allowed to set their price to reflect what they want it to sell, as well as less restrictive toy laws... So they have the right to do it right away. And with Hasbro, they do not benefit from that and will probably consider making either character for their other line. :-?

Then again... I am a Takara Tomy guy. To the point I want to invest in them when I can. :P
