Love the colours on that Unicron but that alt mode :shock:. What in the world is that? He's just folded up into some inanimate and indescribable gnash of nonsense.
Like those coulours though.....and the metallic bits.

Wonder why they gave Unicron Decepticon insignia. He's always been an enemy to all of Primus' creations.

Also, why is Ironhide PINK?

Unicron likes Decepticons now?

And he transforms into a pile of sticks and dried leaves?

Looks like a pineapple replacement for Hitler in "Little Nicky".

I actually like Unicron in that second pic with the pine cone assembled into one large piece. If it didn't cost too much for what I thought it was worth, I'd like to have it in my collection. It would never leave robot mode though because... well, there is just nowhere to go.

That has got to be the WORST Unicron figure ever! This like the ROTF The Fallen. Just a totally half-assed alt mode for the sake of having an alt mode. This arguably worse because at least the Fallen's alt mode looked somewhat like an alt mode for that universe. And the combining with Prime and Megatron? What's the point? Is Unicron really going to combine with them in the show? I don't see it happening. And what a piss poor combined mode. Drape half of Unicron over their shoulders and tuck the other half behind their legs and hope nobody notices.

Same reason Prime is fuchsia. Someone probably fudged up the color settings on these photos.

After seeing more pictures im no longer upset that hasbro isnt releasing unicron, that thing looks horrible and that alt mode (if you can call it that) is just plan bad. Ironhide looks awesome but even if he gets released im not paying $15 for em.

Unicron's rather colorful, isn't he.

Kinda interesting the two clumps of rocks can combine, though I take it they are thus hollow. Does he have actual hands under there or does Unicron have to make do with the rock-clumps and Minicon (with is basically a lump of rock itself).
With the apparent face and those horns, I wonder if you could make a giant Unicron head mode. Image

So Unicron turns into a volcano (magma and all) with his face on it. That's actually kinda cool. He's staying preordered.

He will NOT be combining with Optimus or Megs though and if those Decepticon symbols are stickers, they won't be applied. If they're painted on, they're getting scraped off.

Will show you that one of those pineapple leaf arms is hollow and that he has no hands.

I always thought he was rather lame in the show but as a toy he's far worse.

He looks alright to me in bot mode but in alt mode he looks like something you find in a toilet bowl. And combined mode is just sorry but I will keep mine on pre-order just in case someone mistransformed him or there is some cool hidden feature they are not telling us.

I want to like this. But I cannot.

It's not like the old metal Gaiking toy where he was a cool robot that turned into a cool head.

Here, it's an almost cool robot that turns into something just slapped together at the last second.

Reminds me of being in school and having a project due, but you procrastinated and overslept that night, whipping up something shockingly horrible instead.

At the very least, they should have gone Rock Lords on this.

Wow, Unicron is just ... Bad! The Bot mode is ok, but the alt mode is horrible, with the combined mode being even worse! I shall dub him the Unicron cape. The ONLY redeeming part of it is the face on alt mode is kind of cool (hopefully it's done on purpose and not an accidental side effect of that disaster haha).

Also, Ironhide is disguising himself as Arcee now ... Alrighty!

Have Hasbro confirmed an Ironhide either way yet? It would seem too simple a release for them not too.

Unicron looks amazing, despite the "interesting" alt mode... Definately one not to transform more than once!

Love the Matrix on Optimus but just can't justify it, especially as I'm eyeing up the Takara TRU one...

Figures like this just shock me. They have great potential.
In the show, he's a talking head in rock. Fair enough.
It's logical they made him this. It was his "transformation", unless they had gone pretty hardcore and made like 3 Unicrons that merge into a perfect taller one.
(Why have no toy companies ever done such a thing? Lots of things in comics, film, shows have smaller units becoming an identical larger unit).

I'm just stumped why it had to look like... this.

It just takes me aback, the thought that a group of people got together and made this, then another group of people ok'd it as acceptable.

They had to have been under some pretty heavy time constraints to squat something out looking like this.

So if Hasbro's not releasing it, I have to order Takara's... sucky. I wonder if it has to do with all the sharp spiky bits. :/

I'll probably have to resort to eBay, because the BBTS preorder is sold out and their price is ridiculous anyway.

The intent is that it looks like mountains with a volcano in the middle which has Unicron's face on it, so I suspect it's properly transformed. I think it looks great as is, it's definitely original.

So... so Unicron turns into a cross between his head and a volcano? That's... gotta be one of those ideas that's so outlandishly insane that it becomes awesome... until you see the execution.

Maybe someone can come up with a more workable configuration to make this mode more workable for a horn volcano head. :P

Marketing, no doubt. That may also be a remnant of the fact that the head of his acolyte, The Fallen, is shaped like the Decepticon symbol in RotF and he is considered Megatron's mentor in the movies.
How they're gonna explain that in Prime, who knows?

That combined mode really is aweful. Doesn't even appear functional. Decepticon logos are a no-no as well.

Ironhide looks to be suffering froms some bad Photoshop, but Optimus is probably benefitting from it.

Yes, there is something awesome about Unicron turning into his head. But I don't get why they photographed it like that...is it supposed to be mountains, a head, AND a ship? Or is it just so bad the photographers had no idea what it was supposed to turn into?

It is not a pile of rocks or a spaceship and it is not mis-transformed.

Unicron turns into a volcano with his face on the front of it:

Image

Hopefully the text in the image is clear enough. Basically, at the top you can see the top of the volcano with the opening where magma is shooting out.

Down the sides (the shiny/chromed bits) are magma flowing down the sides of the volcano as it erupts.

His face is on the front of it from which he speaks (to Megatron?).

All of this hearkens back to the episode where he first showed up.

That's a very abstract volcano. I can see where you're getting at, but it's still only vaguely similar. It's like saying The Fallen's alt mode is the Decepticon insignia; it's got the impression of it, but it's not immediately recognizable as such.
