Unicron

Posted by Dominic 
Saw this in the Amacron thread at the TF board (posted by "Mighty One"):

Ah man, it's Sanjeev who does those? He's a killer in the vintage Japanese robot toys community. You can check out their website, Toyboxdx.com. Good, knowledgeable people all around. Now I might have to get one for myself as well.

Since when did the Reverend become a killer?

You mean stone-cold killer, right?
Sanjeev (Admin)
Good lord, I'm famouser!

If I weren't so brown, I'd be blushing! ;)

[And, no, technically not a stone cold killer: the charges were dropped to A&B with a deadly weapon.]
I meant Cold Stone killer. Because ice cream is awesome!
Well, at least he's not the IHOP killer:

Okay, maybe too early for that one.

Ice cream IS awesome. But Cold Stone gives me the runs. Like most boogie stuff...

I'm like Unicron when it comes to frozen yogurt. I can eat that stuff until the universe ends.

I want this ugly but beautiful piece. I like how it looks like Uni has his thumbs in his pockets.

I just hope someday they make that G1 Unicron. I'll take that in a heartbeat!

More serious than thou
Sanjeev (Admin)
Agreed. And I'd make a proper stand for it. ;)
The question then becomes, how much would you be willing to pay?

If they did a limited run of these, how many of you would be willing to shell out $200 to $300 for this guy?
Sanjeev (Admin)
Well, isn't it like twenty inches tall or something? For that hugeness, I'd be willing to drop closer to three bills...
Me too.

Yeah, I'd do $300. Having a real honest to goodness G1 Unicron would be the shit.

There's some really amazing stuff in there.

Wow. The original wooden hand carved prototype. That is beautiful! What book is that from? And this old increases my lust for the unreleased '80s toy.

This book is incredible. Where do I buy it?!

Hopefully this link works:

[www.amazon.co.jp]

I order from amazon Japan all the time, but be aware that the only shipping option is EMS, so expect the shipping price to be exorbitant.

I remember seeing the Beast Wars Unicron prototype images waaay back when. But looking at the pictures now, it seems like they took the basic transformation and applied it to the Death Star Darth Vader. Interesting.
Hmm, I've never tried to buy something from Amazon.co.jp before. Are the usernames in Amazon.com not compatible with Amazon.co.jp?

You need a separate account.

Is that yet another Unicron I spy on BBTS? With Kranix of all minicons to pal around with, thought there'd be some bad oil between them still.
It's the amazon Unicron.

I'm seeing reports of the newer/betterer Unicron found at TRU now. Anyone in the US seeing them?
Sanjeev (Admin)
Uh, since it'd be weird not to post this news here...I'm posting this news here:

Unicron stands are back!
PMing you.
