Unicron 2013 by Unicron9 Unicron 2013 by Unicron9
Destiny... You can not destroy... My... DESTINYYYYY!!!!

He wasn't lying when he said that stuff.
Unicron is back with a new Toy from Takara and his appearance in TF Prime so I had to get my hands on one of these.
I asked the Radicons of TFW2005.com to vote for his alt mode out of a few options I came up with, and this one won the vote.

Think of him as a more G1 colored TF Prime Unicron, or as a Unicron who gathered enough ship/bot/asteroid debris to come back with a new form no larger than a Prime of Cybertron but with the power of the CHAOS BRINGER, or just think of it as a painted plastic toy. Either way, here's what I came up with for him.

No more combining mode. Most of the parts just for that have been removed and parts that opened or came off to combine have been glued together. I even cut off 2 of his back toes so the feet can fold in without having to remove the leg sides. I hoped to simplify him and make a more cohesive alt and bot mode without the dumb stuff.
Last pic shows how the legs peg together in 2 places to form a pretty solid head with the other parts crowded around them.
I added a forehead part to the head mode so the robot head wouldn't look quite so out of place there, and made the head horns turn into the wings for bot mode rather than being pointless separate parts.

Now he is just a Unicron transformer that turns into some weird nightmare space rock head thing, but that's something right!?

TFPrime Unicron looks amazing. I really wanted him to transform into his planet form instead of being earth's core. Plus, no Primus at all. Major bummer.

really dig the head mode dude, reminds me of when he was a floating head in season three
great improvement on the figure thats for sure
managed to bring myself to order one from kapow toys and once it comes in
may do this, looks a lot better this way
have to ask though, did you switch the knee joints? most have a knee joint problem

Nope I didn't do anything to the knees, but didn't have a problem with them either.
Thanks! I'm glad somebody likes it.

No I figure since he was a head at the end of G1 and was rocks and dirt in TFP, this should work. I'm wondering if the wings that make the bot mode more like Unicron are too stupid in alt mode and need to go...
This guy didn't get many comments anywhere I posted him and even a few not-good ones, so I wish I knew what sucked about him.

well I reckon he's pretty neat.
id be happy paying for one like that.
didn't even know they released a tfp unicron.

I always rip the wings off bot mod and alt.
the whole gravitational pull thing and wings kinda make him look like a sissy.

on your alt, its like mini devil wings that girls put on there head when they wear sexy underwear to be naughty kinda anime stuff...

i normally really like your customs, but something about this one feels... sloppy? Although i cant really say that looking at it in detail, i can tell the paint job is anything BUT sloppy. Perhaps its the color choice or something but i am not particularly a fan of this one. I cant quite put my finger on it... too neon/brightly colored maybe?

Maybe it is the toy itself? Have you seen it unmodified/unpainted? Aside from the white, all of the colors I added were darker than what he had.
I intentionally went with a streaky thin orange on the wings so they would look decrepit, and also because they are rubber and I don't want to put on enough acrylic paint to form a soft shell that can tear.

yea i have seen the original... now that i have a picture of it up i can definitely see that this paint job IS much darker, it just doesn't feel that way. To much contrast here? Perhaps its the red, to much of it and in places it shouldn't be?

I honestly can't say exactly what i find off putting about this. If i could figure out myself what I'm not liking about it i would leave you some constructive criticism. But i don't even know myself!

Haha no problem. BTW he has no red on him though. I used international orange and his plastic color is a yellow-orange. The white backgrounds sometimes make dark things too dark and intensify colors. Just something gay about my camera I guess.
