No idea, there's very little info on it. All I heard was that Hasbro announced it at TFCon. I don't even know if it's certain. :(

I did, but it probably would have been a better idea to just ask in the existing topic.

Damn. :( I wonder if this was an error and it wasn't supposed to be up yet. I can't imagine there would be such a small quantity.

Woah, this soon?! I'm glad I ordered as soon as I did then, cause I knew if I didn't do it now, I won't be able to get it later. :-(

I remember TRU doing similar things to hot items. They would get a first batch out, get them out of stock and wait for a second shipment to come in for online sales. Worst case scenario is having to wait until Oct for others to order it. That would suck.

I'm glad I saw this in time to get one ordered. Thanks for the heads up.

It'll be back. The only question is soon or in October when it was originally supposed to be available?

Having seen comparison images of both the Hasbro and Takara, I can see good things about both figures, as well as faults in each.

The Hasbro one has the more correct color choices, while the Takara one has the more correct color layout.

Though, the Takara one has slightly more correct use of its colors than the Hasbro one. Like, the Takara one has orange upper arms, more solidly-colored legs, orange stomach sides, a straight stripe of orange going down the center of the chest, and an overall more subtle color scheme with a correct shade of gray.

On the downside, the Takara one has a fully orange main torso (when it should have more gray in certain places), black knees, too many little silver details that are otherwise unnecessary, and a lack of paint going around the back of his head from cheek-to-cheek.

On the other hand, the pluses of the Hasbro one are its knees colored the same as its lower legs, a gray upper torso, a red Planet Mode maw, a painted Planet Mode equator, a correct shade of blue for Planet Mode, and overall more accurate shades of orange and blue.

But, it also has far too many little red and silver details that are really unnecessary, too shiny a silver, a jagged orange stripe going down his chest all zigzag-like, gray stomach sides, garish and gaudy orange and silver details are his legs, Red LED eyes when he should have green, and an overall disorienting color layout.

If only Hasbro and/or Takara had taken the positives of both versions, discarded/fixed as many negatives as they could, and attempted to give us something as closer as possible to this without further remolding or making a new figure, then this would have been an instant win.

The keyword in this is SUBLETY, as the G1 Unicron had a very subtle color scheme. He didn't look all that fancy, but he didn't HAVE to. His colors worked just fine without all these little bits of red and silver speckled all over his body. His basic colors of blue, orange, and gray work just fine for him on there on. We don't need all these little extra bits that take away form the show-accruacy of these two figure's color schemes!
