Motto: "Our society's downfall will not be this war. The war IS our society. That which will get us will be the little things. Some humanoid race, some tossed cannon, the little things that no one looks out for. THAT is for what we must be vigilant."
Weapon: Twin Shoulder-Mounted Rocket Launchers
That math:

The absolute largest shipping containers Hasbro could be using measures at 53'x9.5'x8.5. That is 26 Unicrons long by 4 Unicrons high by 4 Unicrons wide or 26×4×4. That means the absolute largest shipping containers available to Hasbro holds.... 416 Unicrons???!!

And they made almost 12,000? Yeesh.

That means Hasbro has to ship Unicron in a whopping 29 containers. Now, not all of those are going Stateside, but I bet most of them are. 20 containers of just one product is a LOT of containers for a company like Hasbro.

EDIT: I did not account for added pallet. So if we are going with 3 Unicrons tall on a pallet then we are closer to 312 in a pallet.

I am in a 312 sq ft arpartment. I have no flipping clue where I am putting mine. I really want to have it in Planet Mode... But that is probably not happening.

The answer to your question: most people do not have 5 Devastators, 4 Fort Maxes, 3 Metroplexes and a partridge in a pear tree. Bur still. I only have so much room for Titans and I have no idea what I am doing when I end up with Unicron, Scorpy, Black Zarak, and an Ark.

Another great episode! Good to hear your enthusiasm for Black Zarak.

Any chance you will carry on with the Classics retrospective? Perhaps a more timely discussion would be which pre-WFC toys you still use in your Classics/Generations displays?
