Wow. Those are way smaller than I thought they'd be. Maybe as small as World's Smallest Jaguar.


Who wants to start a betting pool on how quickly someone will accidentally inhale these?

but like... he's already a planet. you're supposed to live in a city, but he's already a planet. who would he be a city for? how would that even work with him ALREADY BEING A PLANET?

Solution: Planet-sized space colony.

That city mode would probably take up nearly an entire card table top. I kind of like it, sort of reminds me of Cybertron Primus' battle station/space craft mode. I'm sure people will be their own fan modes now that this has been brought to our attention.

Happy to see new and better looking mini figures. Those previous ones really didn't help sell anyone on Unicron

That's some really cool insight in how things are done.

My thoughts exactly. In exchange for backing, we are getting an extremely in depth look at the production process...maybe more than we've ever seen before. And honestly, this may be the biggest perk. Fascinating process!

Even though it's not named as such, can this be considered a Masterpiece Unicron?

Haslab Unicron:Production Update #1

It's been a few coffee breaks since we last heard anything about Hasbro's War for Cybertron Unicron, and now Hasbro have released the first (in what will hopefully be on-going) production update in which they discuss "tool start".

HasLab wrote:Tool start is when we begin the process of manufacturing the tools, or molds, that will be used to create each piece of this massive figure. However, before tool start, we need a tool layout. A tool layout is the plan that organizes all the pieces that make up the figure into different tools. One tool might make five small pieces, while another tool might make one big one. The number of pieces in a tool vary based on the material, color and size.

Read more about the process and check out a short <1 minute video about the tool start process on the Hasbro Pulse website.

Whether you backed Unicron or not, this is still a fascinating look behind the scenes of what it takes to bring our beloved plastic crack to retail. Feel free to add your thoughts about this process, or just have a good old chinwag on our Energon Pub Forums!

"...AND THE ARK SHIP!" is actually a Movie shuttle. Titanium gave us the same mix up, so at least it's tradition.

And all these years, I never realized how much Unicron's head is shaped like Darth Vader's, until seeing it unassembled on the blueprints. Adds a new dimension to the SW Crossovers Death Star; I need to remember how to transform mine again someday...

lets hope they are better at assembling rather than naming :) at least they aren't calling him Decepticon Unicron again...yet.

I'm just praying they actually put the assembled product through some serious real-world stress testing before deeming it ready for for full production. Stress marks and broken ratchet joints from normal use are awful on any retail figure, but if they happen on something this irreplaceable...

I hope they do more reports like these... A lot more. I thunk its cool and important to show their fans what actually goes on in the design and development phase.

Agree with this. Also keeps him in our minds while it's going, and will give us a very close look at the whole process

A minor thing but, The Revenge would have made a lot more thematic sense, as a freebie mini-ship. Especially as not a single Autobot Shuttle ever shared screen time with Unicron.

Just saying... >:oP

Wow...Where in the world are you living that you only have to pay about $220.00 USD per month for rent?

Granted I came nowhere close to getting A Unicron myself, but it's price is more like ONE Expensive Car payment, or 1/2-1/3 of most people's Rent/Mortgage for one month
