Unicron's actually getting a toy? A Voyager?


DON'T SCREW THIS UP WITH YOUR POWERIZER NONSENSE HASBRO!

Also, I hope he doesn't change from a Rock Monster to a Pile of Rocks.

What do you want to bet Unicron is just a minor retool of the Armada version?

'Cause that would be 100,000¥. What's getting released is a Voyager sized figure.

I'll bet you a lot, considering he is listed with the price of a Voyager class figure, and not a Supreme class.

5000 yen? ~$60 US? That seems in line with the Supreme class Amazon Unicron cost (MSRP, not the secondary market 3x price gouge).

Yeah, 5000 yen would be a crazy high price for a voyager figure. And "darkness Megatron" is listed at the same price.

Definitely did not see Unicron getting a toy.

You're forgetting that toys in Japan are more expensive than toys in America. That price is the price of voyagers in Japan. Compare it to the price of Voyager Megatron Darkness, which is also 5000 yen. Why, the Deluxes are being sold for 2000 yen, which is roughly $25 USD. Japan is an expensive country.

This Unicron is a Voyager figure.

Of course, but considering that I'm actively thinking about using that figure to replace my Henkei Ironhide, using my imagination just isn't enough to make the final decision. I want pics dammit!

I was in Japan 2 weeks ago, and PRID voyagers were going for 3300 yen. Even FE Bulkhead was only 4400 yen, and he was in *very* limited supply. So at 5000 yen, I'm guessing these are larger than Voyager-sized toys.

5000 yen would be a very abnormal price for a voyager in Japan.

Problem is... autobot swerve is listed at 4000 yen, which has been confirmed to be a repaint of breakdown who is a voyager. Does Takara usually charge a 1000 yen premium on certain figures?

Think PRID will spell the reintroduction of ultra class?

A Transformers Prime UNICRON?!?!?!?! :APPLAUSE: :BOWDOWN: :shock:
I HOPE that we get him in a Leader Class so that there will be some semblance to the scale of the RiD Voyager Class. I hope that Unicron will scale to the Unicrons that Prime was fighting in that crevasse. But that is up in the air and I'll wait and see what the FINAL product will look like!! Fingers crossed!!

'Megatron Darkness', eh? What are the odds this voyager is going to be made from translucent purple? Perhaps not to the extent of zombie Cliffjumper, but given the name I'd be surprised if we got the beautiful metal looking voyager Megatron I think a lot of us want.

Voyagers are $60 US, it is a Voyager Unicron. Why are people fighting about this?

Every single MA Voyager is $59.99 at BBTS.

I totally didn't see it coming. When I looked at the Unicron droids in the show,I assumed they designed so bad and crappy purposely so there is no hope for building a toy like that :P
