As dumb as the concept of Unicron having a city mode is, that is probably the coolest city mode I’ve ever seen.

For me, while it is a bit of a mess. It looks like a Cyber-Doom Level. I so can see this
being a Hell Mouth style level in a game. :michaelbay:

Guys... That city mode... is like something straight out of the old 3H Universe comics from OTFCC 2003, resembling the hellish landscape of Unicron's interior, right down to Unicron's maw being used as the Pit!

I really like the concept, I really like the "city" mode because seems to me like a judgement pit for Quintessons and all the "city" in very quintesson style with spikes and details everywhere but... I see the entire structure and I just can't stop thinking that looks like a pregnant woman in childbirth :(

Aw man. It also just dawned on me the play value of being able to have the maw eat something, then it come OUT somewhere and continue through his bowels. That's a lot of play value there.

Well that's an image that's now stuck in my head...

Also remember, these images weren't from Hasbro but the Generations 2020 book that's out in Japan, hence we we have no idea what the text says along with it, as we need someone to translate it.

Wow, that's really cool looking, but probably best they scrapped the idea. I'm of the mindset to do one thing and do it well.

There is some seriously awesome potential there. The first thing I thought when I saw this was: "that is some seriously metal design!"

This just goes right along with what I've been saying the whole time. Haslab should have made Metroplex not Unicron. I would have backed Metroplex.

Honestly, it looks like they took a chunk right out of Cybertron. If you look at Cybertron, the planet does look like a mess of buildings, roads and randomness, so I think it looks great!

Updated Look at Hot Rod and Galvatron Mini Figures Included With HasLab Unicron

Postby ZeroWolf » Fri Dec 13, 2019 7:05 am

Motto: "My past no longer binds my future..."
Weapon: Battle Blades
Greetings Seibertronians! If you thought yesterday's look at the abandoned city mode was the only news about Unicron in the Transformers Generations 2020 book, then we have some news for you!

On the same page, as the aforementioned city mode, you see a photo of the Hot Rod and Galvatron Mini Figures that are included with the crowd funded Unicron and they've been changed since we last saw the mock ups, now looking a lot more like that do in the seminal Transformers the Movie from 1986! Next to the picture is a render of their new design.

Image

You can also see an image comparing the size of Unicron's head to the mini figures.

What do you think of these? Do they make you glad that you got your preorder in for those who answered the Chaos Bringers call? Let us know in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews!

Mini rodimus and galavatron are going to be that small it's interesting to see the amount of effort put into them. Will be even more interesting to see painters that can paint a grain of rice try to deco them up o.O

I don't care what they do to them, they're going into a small bag in my parts drawer so I don't lost them.

They look nicer than the hastily made ones from before, though.

A game board that transforms as you play it (sorta like mousetrap). Its alt mode is a box with a handle for easy toting to a friends house.
