While photographing the HasLab crowdfunded War for Cybertron Trilogy UNICRON, I decided it was best to also knock out galleries for Platinum Unicron with Kranix as well as Encore Unicron of Light with Bug. I figured when else was I going to transform all of these Unicrons again in the near future? Platinum Unicron is the newest release of the "G1" styled Armada Unicron with a lighter shade of "blue" for the planet mode parts and includes Kranix which is essentially the same deco as the version which came with the 2011 Amazon exclusive Unicron. The Encore "Unicron of Light" figure is meant to be an homage of the Lucky Draw release, of which we had the pleasure of photographing WAY back in 2010 (courtesy of fellow Seibertronian JRFitzpatrick7). Without further ado, check out the highlights below of Encore Unicron of Light and Platinum Edition Unicron!

Green Unicron is really cool, but it suffers from some severe mold degradation. 'Tis what happens when its the latest release of a most that's been used so much. Still, it's really cool to have what is essentially a "Good Guy Unicron toy", what with this not actually being Unicron himself but an energy doppelganger made up of Mini-Cons.

Platinum Edition Unicron, on the other hand, I was more than happy to skip. Lazy reuse of the Amazon deco, but made worse with that baby blue. Say what one will about what shade of blue/gray Unicron is, we can all agree that he isn't that shade. So glad they did not use it for the HasLab figure.

Still, it is cool that you got his eyes changed from red to green. Nice work. ;)^

Surprisingly, my Green Unicron feels more stable than the Platinum Unicron. It's easily the worst of my bunch (though Energon Unicron hasn't faired that well either). My Platinum Unicron suffered from the right side of the crotch piece constantly falling off as well as one of the planet maw shell wing pieces on his back.

I absolutely agree. It's a really bad blue. The Amazon one is a weird blue also. I don't know what color I think Unicron's planet mode should be, but it's not any of those for sure. I still am not a big fan of the shade used for HasLab Unicron either. I wish they had done something unique with it that had a bluish gray swirly sheen to it or something. Just something unique so that it looked grayer in some lights and bluer in other lights.

That was the big draw for Platinum Unicron. He came with the green eyes ... but it's too bad that the LED light is still red instead of green. The pics of his head opened up was me trying to fix the light up feature. Out of the box, mine didn't work. I have no idea what I did to fix it, but when I reassembled the head the lights worked. I'm assuming there was a pinched wire or something.

One peculiar oddity about Platinum Unicron is that they changed the orientation of the batteries for just that release. Every other Unicron I have had the batteries facing the same direction, but just Platinum Unicron has the batteries so one is facing positive up and the other is facing negative up.

My ideal shade would be a nice halfway between the blue of the Amazon and HasLab Unicrons and the gray of Welcome to Transformers 2010 Unicron.

I can't believe I have that same stand, and I still can't quite get Unicron of Light on it. It's a gorgeous Unicron, the only one I really need

You might just need to tighten the screws, though trust me I had to play around with them so that they would sit properly and not topple over. I got it to work for my galleries, but I dont know about leaving them on a shelf on those stands unless you superglued the base of the legs of one of the stands in place.

I can definitely imagine it! I'd really like to get Haslab Unicron in the Energon black color scheme. It's my favorite and it is different enough that I think its fair to people who thought this was a one and done thing.
