New Unicron Stand - Throne of Chaos

Posted by:

Longtime visitors of Unicron.com may remember our 2003 accessory item, the Unicron Stand, which was designed with the intention of enabling the Unicron figure to stand up properly in its Planet Mode.

Fast forward to 2011 and another third-party group, Brownnoise Productions, has created their own stand for Unicron: the Throne of Chaos. This stand is of a completely different design appearance than our stand, and appears to get the job done of being able to hold the Chaos Bringer on its own (as was our stand's purpose).

As it turns out, I posted a response to this guy's ranting at our old stand, and he's more or less apologized for any implied offense aimed at Unicron.com itself. He praises our efforts for creating the idea for the Unicron stand and attempting to make it a reality, but still stands by his opinions about our stand's functionality with the Unicron figure (though, using more civilized words this time).

He also feels that our other products were great, much better than our stand was.

There's no hard feelings between either party and we can each respect the other's works without conflict. The waters have been calmed.

thats good then.
i have to say that the later products are better, but the stand created hear is good if you don't play with your transformers.
and for transformers like unicron that is too large to play with i think that is fare lol.
ofcourse i am not saying people don't play with unicron because he is a must and i frequantly have unicron pozed crushing legends figures and even hugging primus once lol but its quite infrequant that i play with anything over leader size

Hey all, I just thought I'd voice in on this one. Personally, I'm glad to see that someone else has created a new Unicron stand, especially considering that ours has been sold out for so long with no intent on making another run. When it comes to design, I'd be the first to say that there are some things we would like to have changed. Having the chance to learn from our first round we would certainly make some significant design changes, and we've talked about doing just that, many times. Still talk about it from time to time, in fact; with the release of the 2010 Takara retool, we'd love to do a (significant) retool of our own. All of that being said, we did put a LOT of time and effort into that project (many years ago) when absolutely no one else was doing that sort of thing. Even Takara purchased our stands and used them to display Unicron on in a Japanese toy fair. That's nothing to shake a stick at. I would have liked to see this new Unicron Throne injection molded, but hey, it does look nice and solid, and it's certainly a way of keeping the cost down. For now though, our focus is on upgrading the site infrastructure (more to come very soon), and for the time being not product design. We wish you the best Brownnoise Productions; Cheers.
