Well, this guy's gotten some pretty negative views lately so I figured I'd prove the masses wrong. As a first word... buy this figure! People have stated that he's too small to be Unicron which is partially true, but believe me this guy's price is right. You will definitely be satisfied with him.
As you can see, his vehicle mode is a alien tank that is very different from his previous planet mode yet still resembles the the general Unicron "look." As you know I split my review, 5 points toward the Vehicle mode and 5 points toward the Robot mode. I give this guy's vehicle mode a flawless five out of five. It's a solid design, it reinvents the whole Unicron image while still keeping the original themes such as the jagged maw on the front of the tank.
This is where the figure loses a few points. The figure itself is great and has some really good paint apps here, but the articulation is a bit loose in places. Something ironic about this is that people were complaining online about how this figure isn't enough like the original supreme version, well he's still got all the problems the original had. He can't stand very well due to his small feet and he's very top-heavy. I'm not taking off points for that though no... I'm taking off points for the fact that his hips are as loose as a goose! Every time you try to stand him up he just sits down again! His neck is extremely loose but there's a plastic catch in the joint so I'll let this one slide.
Overall, this figure is great, a solid vehicle mode that has some great features (i.e. the Cyber Planet Key function) and still keeps the classic "Unicron look," and a robot mode that's a trial to stand up but looks fantastic once you've done it. This is definitely one of Hasbro's best Deluxe figures and a great way to end the Cybertron line. 9 out of 10.
