All of Trump's base are stone cold morons, so there's that. Then again, a lot of people would argue that America has nevr been "great", or even when it is there's plenty to bring down it's score.

@  Vexwing : (20 January 2017 - 04:18 PM)

A lot of Trump's base would probably claim it stopped being great 8 years ago.

@  Locoman : (20 January 2017 - 03:44 PM)

And today is National Cheese Lover's Day, apparently, so perhaps we should make America grate again while we're at it

So basically the same as the past 8 years. Guess that works too.

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 January 2017 - 06:25 PM)

We as a nation either drank too much or not enough. It's difficult to say, really.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 January 2017 - 06:10 PM)

Isn't America being crazy drunk how we got in this situation in the first place?

@  BlackMax : (19 January 2017 - 04:18 PM)

I plan on being very American about every single injustice our new leader perpetrates ("American" of course meaning "annoyed and loud").

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 January 2017 - 02:38 PM)

I plan to just stick my fingers in my ears and pretend I don't hear anything.

@  Bass X0 : (19 January 2017 - 02:26 PM)

I recommend America just get crazy drunk for the next four years. It's the only way you're going to get through them.

In the beginning new Subways were only built every twelve months. Then six, then three. Then every two weeks. In four days we could be seeing a new Subway every eight hours until they are coming every four minutes.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 January 2017 - 03:44 PM)

One bite is all it takes.

@  Locoman : (18 January 2017 - 03:44 PM)

I'm a little worried by how many Subways there are in my vincinity. Like, there are two within walking distance of my house, and I pass about four of them on my way to work

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 January 2017 - 03:41 PM)

I'd almost rather eat the corpse, but then again, it's probably been eating Subway too, with my luck.

I was hoping for something like this just yesterday. Except in my hopes, Unicron was repainted to looks more like his G1 self. Maybe they STILL have a jiveload left over from Armada?

Weird. Seems like Retailers would run screaming from this guy at this point. But then again all that movie toys money probably makes them more forgiving.

I got my second Armada Unicron for like 15$ at Tuesday Morning.

Here's a mirror of the image:


I think it would've been nice if the colors were tweaked a bit to match the movie version just a little better, but heck, it was already almost spot-on. And it really has been five years since it was first released, so it does seem like a reasonably smart item to release to kids and collectors sucked in by the movie, Animated, Classics, whatever.

Why does all of the universe box art make it look like the subject's whole body is leaning backwards?

I still have my Unicron from Armada... But I changed out the red LED for a green one. Soldering guns are your friends! (Just don't grab them at the business end. icon-hotrod.gif ) Also, I painted some silver around his helmet to look more traditional.

My guess is Hasbro still had a boat load of these in storage, thus no new paint schemes.

Now this is nice. I don't own the original, it's well past time I'd ever find it on clearance in stores, and ebay prices are ridiculous. I'm actually happy, as I'll get a shot at owning it (a friend had it back in the day, so I know it's a good mold)

I sincerely hope this is the final version. That way, people who weren't alive or interested back in 2003 can have a Unicron of their own, and I don't have to feel like there's a superior version to the Armada one.

I could see myself getting it if they gave it a repaint making it more similar to the G1 version. Otherwise no thanks already have the Armada and energon versions.

What a coincidence. I still need a Unicron

Interesting that there is a Universe Supreme class though. Possibility for future new molds, or just made up for a few rereleases of important characters?

Now I just need to hope it actually comes out here, unlike Classics Devastator

Dang. If they were rereleasing it, why couldn't they have given it a more accurate colour scheme. Even the transparent-to-grey plastic switch mentioned above would have been welcomed.


Oh well, I guess i'll be waiting for the properly G1 coloured Henkei version icon-fire.gif I wonder what they'll chrome on him, maybe his jaws? Awesome.

I like the packaging a lot, but I already own the Armada toy so I'll be passing on this one. It's still good though for those who don't already own Unicron.

I guess they had to put some symbol on the packaging and since Unicron is evil they went with a 'con insignia.

That's what I was gonna ask. So, Unicron has chosen to side with the 'Cons? Sadly, since he's not changed... from what I can tell and has been stated... from his Armada colors, this one is a pass.

Now, if they release Primus in a new scheme, I'm all over it. My Primus is being over powered by Energon and Armada Unicron.
