Seibertronians, today we bing you some additional shots of the upcoming Platinum Edition Unicron! Coming to us from Twitter User @BfqeO, the images give us a better look at the figure's exterior box art, the box art in the fold-out leaf, as well as Unicron in his bubble, and the figure himself. The user also shows off the lighting effects Unicron comes with.

There has been some discussion about how similar this figure is to it's previous releases, so tell us in the comments: do these additional photos sway your opinion in any way? Please, let us know, but first take a look at the images themselves below!

Okay, now that we can see it in good lighting, the blue is definitely a few shades lighter than on the Amazon version, but that seems to be the extent of the differences, new packaging aside.

Very quick and rough comparison.

At most they're using different shades of paint. The applications, it seems, are the exact same (aside from the eyes which are red instead of green unless I'm looking at the light-up feature wrong)

But that's an old stock photo on the right. The real toy didn't fully look like that.

I'm very surprised they left the electronics in. I'll be sticking with my Armada version though.

Might be beating a dead horse here but, you think we'll ever get a new unicron mold? Like, a BIG one? Because as much as I like the Armada Unicron's overall look...I feel he needs an update already. And with Has/Tak's capacity to heavily retool existing molds into other characters (Optimus/Magnus, Metroplex/Fort Max) I can easily see them getting a Primus out of a potential Unicron mold.

Not to mention a new Darth Vader/Death Star Transformer ;) (Or would it be Kylo Ren/ Sarkiller Base?)

i would like to see a new planetformer mold. The titan class has given us potential, and i wish they would take advantage of it!

Does anybody know if there is a version of this guy that has light up green eyes? Thanks!

All versions have red LED's simply because they're the cheapest to get.

So the Takara Tomy version is still the best version. Good to know, I chose correctly.

Yuck, those blue legs look awful. Glad I got the Amazon version years ago, still the best in my book.

Frankly, my personally repainted Armada Unicron does the job just fine. I'll grab a pic or something soon.

Well %&*#
The hand is not solid as speculated. And his eyes are in fact not green. I was going to pay whatever premium I had to to get this bugger, now I don't even know if I'd grab him if I found him locally. That Movielicious box is about the only reason I'm still interested.

I plan to get this since I missed out on all the other releases.

I think it's great that it is a bit closer to the Amazon exclusive release so it gives the people who didn't get the figure an opportunity to get Unicron. So I definitely want to try to get it on account of that, but if I already had the Amazon release I most likely wouldn't bother with getting this one. Packaging art though kicks a lot of butt however.

That means this set is now only $37.96, about the cost of a voyager and deluxe at today's prices. So hurry up and go grab yourself these Platinum sets before they're all gone!

Kapow has also had Megatron vs Optimus reduced to an insane £30 for quite a long while now.

I'd pay that much for Classics Optimus alone.
