A bit of a tangent, but since it was made to accompany WFC Unicron:

What happened?! :shock:

Looks like he was trying to swap out the red LEDs for green ones.

Well, that's the odd thing. The original listing had its price, for which I made the required down payment. Then, when it came time for me to pay the rest, the number was higher than the original listed price, which I figured was added into the total to account for the shipping cost.

But then, when I got the email that said it shipped, the invoice listed the original price, and said shipping was "FREE", which certainly confused me.

I'm guessing the invoice said "FREE" because it was an order over $150 and all of their invoices for orders that high say that, when it really wasn't free in this exceptional case. I don't know the actual shipping amount since it would require a bunch of addition and subtraction calculations with at least three different numbers as they didn't tell me the shipping cost separately from the original cost.

Weird. But OK, tfsource has not done much to impress me lately, and this is just another oddity to add to it.

OK, for ya'll who have gotten the figure, a question:

How well do the little screw-hold-cover plug-ins stay in place? Would it be worth it to glue them into place or is it a really snug fit? I wanted to get input before inserting mine.

Mine stay in great, granted i pushed them out of the sprue thing, so part of the plastic remained on them giving the covers more friction

He's come home, and I love him. I haven't made up his room yet, but he has a nice place to stay, and he knows I'll take good care of him.

As long as he cleans up after himself.

Greetings Seibertronians! Hasbro have taken to their official YouTube channel to celebrate the arrival of HasLab Unicron in the homes of many of their fans with an video showing how to transform the Chaos Bringer!



The video will take you through the Transformation in its 15 minutes runtime.

It was boasted that HasLab Unicron would take an hour to transform at first, due to his enormous size and the plates that made up his planet mode surface.

Want to see more of the biggest Transformer ever made, be sure to check out Seibertrons own galleries, so big it had to be split in two!

Have you got your chaos bringer? Share with us his new out of box home!

Shout out in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews!

For anyone that already has their bot: once attached, are the spike strips removable? I'm thinking that the bot mode might look a bit cleaner with the strips removed and the planet mode pinchers tucked in downward.
If anyone would post a picture of how that would look, that would be very cool.

Left removed. Right normal. You tell me which looks better

I'm leaning towards right normal.

I'm more for the left removed, with the robot mode looking cleaner. That said, when I first watched a Japanese review including the 30 min. long transformation (he was *really* careful and showing off connection points), I was aghast of how the entire shell is just collapsed on his back and legs. What really got me though, was the soft rubber spike strips just... hanging loose. I got over the first, much less the second.

I was reminded of peeling mandarins, really :lol:

:EDIT: Just an addition I'd like to make: whoever designed the rings and their transformation has to be a mathematician, specialising in circular geometry. He deserves an award!

I think I'm liking the removed spikes, but maybe not the horns pointed down (I thought they would tuck in more).

I'm trying to decide whether or not to keep mine. Bought it when I was employed and had (presumably) steady funds; now I'm unemployed and money is tight.

I have a question that relates to this thread, kind of. I bought Unicron and he was just delivered but does anyone know who toyhax is? Idk how to contact them directly, I’m praying for the day they release a sticker set for this guy. I’ve been applying the g1 fort max upgrade set for weeks in preparation and I’m just floored with the quality they’re so good just make some for Unicron ples

Anybody else have their Unicron set up with any of his heralds/minions standing with him? I've got mine set up with all three Blentrons standing at his feet (yes, even a legit Latolata, not Injector).

That sounds pretty cool. I always liked those characters in BW Neo...

Hmm... I'm sensing a pattern...

Galvatron, Cyclonus, Scourge
Elphaorpha, Latolata, Drancron
Hook, Line, Sinker (sorry can't say that last one without laughing) :lol:

Then Armada broke it with first just Sideways and then just him and Thrust (who had to be convinced to side with Unicron rather than always being his minion).

I'm thinking of doing that with some of my extra ones, but for the most part I'm going to be sticking my Unicrons together. So far I've got Armada, Encore, TT 2010, and just paid too much for an Energon Unicron. :lol: Plus a bunch of the smaller Unicrons I have kicking around. They're all going on top of a short and wide book shelf that should be plenty deep for the the big guy. It's going to be a process since I'm redoing the entire room and most stuff is in boxes and a lot of stuff has bled into the hall and living room but it'll look great when it's done!

It's a little crazy to me how this is the most important TF release in a long while and even it falls into the trap of once we get it, we stop talking about it.

On that note...one interesting thing that happened was that the box for Unicron was like, half an inch too wide to fit through my attic door.

Hope your attic is climate controlled or that cardboard may go bad over time.
