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...


Haven't confirmed Ironhide but we are getting Kup out of that mold.

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.

The robot mode of Unicron looks cool at least. Do we know how big it is?

Wow, Unicron looks amazing. And he even turns into a pile of rocks! Show accuracy! :lol:

Seriously though, I really do like it, and it's cool that they decided to do something VERY out of the norm with the altmode. All the shiny chrome is quite nice too. :)

Anyone else thinking that they transformed Unicron wrong? That maybe the legs on each side of the "Face" fold back to become more of a head shape, thus making it like in the G1 cartoon?

Wow...that's actually awesome on a basis of sheer insanity. We now have a Unicron that transforms into Unicron's head! :lol: :APPLAUSE:

I...still like it.

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.

Unicron is OK, but he shouldn't be combining with OP. Maybe he should with Megatron, but it look's weird with both.

I don't know about you, but it can be used as if he was in exile, like in the 1986 movie.

By the way, a pink Ironhide? Must be an animation error. He is looking sweet, but let's see about the US release.

And as for Arms Master Prime: :APPLAUSE: :APPLAUSE: :APPLAUSE: :APPLAUSE: :APPLAUSE: :APPLAUSE: :APPLAUSE: :APPLAUSE: :APPLAUSE: :APPLAUSE:

Yup, looks like he'll light our darkest hour after all!

I think it looks awesome enough that I might have to import it!

If you don't think he should have Decepticon logos, don't put them on. I'm sure they're labels that you have to apply yourself anyway. So just don't.

Decepticon logos suck, and the combined forms look really weird....so much kibble in the back.
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.

Eh, I'm just gonna pretend it's Unicron's head.

Greatest thing possible: A supreme class Unicron that turns into Earth.

Awesome!! haha! Anyone know how much this will be selling for? I almost want to get it because of the volcano mode!
