We all love our world devouring chaos bringer named Unicron. We love his robot-mode with it's horns and wings, we love his appetite and we love the fact that he turns into a cannibalistic planet with horns - he's totally METAL.

So when the Transformers Armada line finally brought us a transforming Supreme sized toy action figure we rejoiced, and since Unicron's planet-mode was kind of like a nostalgic (un)holy grail to us, we wanted to display him in that mode, letting him eat those stupid Mini-Cons. It was then we found out that he wasn't really a fully round planet and was impossible to display in said mode.

So along came Unicron.com, a fellow Transformers fan-site, and made a stand available which would let you display him in his planet-mode. The stand was cheap and had a wonderful design, sadly due to a design flaw the stand would often tilt over or in some cases even snap.

So since Armada Supreme Class Unicron was recently re-released with a much more G1 movie accurate colour scheme and head a different fan decided to make his own stand for this version the "Throne of Chaos". The producer of this new stand goes by the name of Brownnoize productions.
The price is stated to be USD 30 and is made in America out of crystal clear acrylic and is quite frankly a far more stable design than the Unicron.com stand.

We have mirrored some of the images of this incredible new stand, but you can click here for the original blog-post, however the post uses a lot of cursing and fowl language, so you might not want to check it out at work or school.

Update:
Brownnoize has updated it's blog with a contact form, just click here to get to it.

Looks like a nice design.

Not sure if I want to sign up for them to give me a shot at owning one, but it is cool, and looks much sturdier than the one that I have that makes me cry.

A nice stand, well designed... but I've got Unicron in robot mode, and I have no paypal account thing... nor am I sure how to get one. *Shrug*

Cool stand, and it looks light years more stable than the one by Unicron.com, but I'll pass. Mainly because I'm lazy and don't want to sign up for the forum.

That stand actually reminds me of a plastic photo frame I had to make in shop class. All I had to do was bend a piece of plastic using heat. I bet, if I could get some of plates and a heater, I could make a stand myself...

Very nice.

Not $30 nice, but nice none the less. The cut out on the front for the bottom part of the circle is my favorite part.

paypal is easy. i signed up with my hotmail account. then add my card (it takes credit or debit cards I think) to the paypal database. you can pay for goods and services or send people money (or have them send you money) and supposedly they're pretty good with getting your money back if something goes wrong.

Picked up both Unicron and SW Crossovers Darth Vader/Death Star this past week at a discount store. Both are minus a few parts but this stand would still come in handy for making a display with the two facing off against each other. Of course, I also have enough clear plex of my own to make something similar to this but it wouldn't look as clean in the final product. This stand is seriously starting to tempt me... :-?

$30 for a laser cut piece of clear plastic that was bent using a wire heater.


It's a bit audacious to charge that much, I think.

Not worth signing up to a forum for, and definately not worth 30 bucks. PASS!

It looks OK but just a clear piece of plastic is not exactly what I would call a "Throne of chaos"

I want one of those so I signed up at the website. It takes a moderator to approve any app's so not sure how long it takes.

Please get over yourself. This thing looks perfect. I guess none of you remember how much Unicron.com charged for their stand back in the day, and that piece of crap doesn't even work!

Speak for yourself, I'm buying two and laughing all the way to my collection case!!!!! So happy to see this today.

I keep mine in robot mode, so I'm not too interested in this.

Hah, the one taking the pics doesn't like the bright orange missiles either. Yea, i'm afraid i'd have to agree with a lot of you, $30 is a little extreme for a stand. That cash could be better spent on some FP, or United figures.
