On February first, Hasbro shipped out the Trasformers WFC Unicron to retailers in China, like Robot Kingdom. You can see an image of the the boxes being ready for distribution in one of their Asian warehouses below. Hobby Mizer also got their hands on some and have made a review for all of us. While it is in Cantonese, they include bullet points in English throughout the video.

Transformers News: First Haslab Transformers Unicron Video Review



So we know Unicron is done and shipping to retailers, hopefully this means everyone who ordered one is closer to getting a shipping notice themselves. Let us know what you think of the toy when it comes your way.

Is this only available to backers, or will it hit mass retail as well?

I’m feeling a little salty, because during the time that this monster was getting backed I was on a religious mission trip and didn’t have a single dollar to spare on any transformers, let alone a $600 one. Now, however, I’m working a good paying full time job and would jump at any chance Hasbro gives to buy this guy again (given he’s at the same price). I know a lot of people have nitpicks and complaints about him, which is understandable for the price, but good heavens for me JUST the planet mode is worth the price of admission. Anyway, does anyone know of anyway hasbro or other companies might find a way for people like me to get a second chance at owning this at a similar price as he was originally offered? And yes, I know resellers and scalpers will be reselling this on eBay for way too much. So I’m hoping for any other chance that won’t sacrifice my entire month’s paycheck.

Only backers. This thing isn't fit for mass retail standards.

I can't wait for the $100 knock off. Seriously did we really need eyes that could move or timy ships and figurines

Back when the backing window was open, people kept demanding Hasbro put in more and more features and gimmicks to get their money's worth out of it.

Does anyone know if this Unicron can stand in robot form without its stand? I don’t have a display cabinet that would fit the dimensions of the support stand... :(

I believe I remember Warden saying that Unicron had some amount (whether it be full or limited) of poseability without the stand.

Honestly the gimmick I really wanted them to have with this one, was an eyepiece that had the quintesson ship blasting into it. That would have been great for display.

I couldn't pre-order this so I have no skin in the game, but I'd be mighty peeved to find out etailers overseas are getting this figure and I have to wait a month. I doubt that the orders from stores like Robot Kingdom and BBTS pushed Unicron over the required order goal. Nobody but the individual backers should be getting this.

I can wait to be happy next month, and I can be happy fotr those who already have their hands on it. I suffer no harm if someone else gets it sooner than me.

I'm assuming shipping boxes from Vietnam to China is quicker than by boat to the US.

Silence, I eat you.

Very shiny and impressive. The fly paper strips still look bad but no doubt there will be more reviews that might show them removed. The Hastak employees...erm...third party upgrades for this thing will cost a fortune, maybe some clip on light up abs with the correct amount. Planets maw teeth should have been solid or included fillers. it's going to make Zetas look tiny at any rate.

So am I the only one that feels the guy is a bit weird the way he fondles the box and each part.

Agreed, but at the same time I don't like being outright lied to by Hasbro. Just a couple days ago they said...

We are wrapping up the final production and packaging on your HasLab War For Cybertron Unicron and will begin shipping to you in late March. The packaging and shipping process is a multi-person undertaking, and of course, we want to ensure The Lord of Chaos arrives to you undamaged!

But we can now see that that was clearly not the truth.

Look, Hasbro, we get it, there's a pandemic and shipping is delayed. Just tell the truth, tell us that you need an extra month to get these out of Asia. Don't feed us some lie about still tweaking the packaging to get it just right. Honestly, a lot of people weren't expecting this until Spring, not too many people are going to care that it's shipping in late March.

I’m happy for all the backers. I hope it is everything they imagined it would be and worth every penny. This is the best time to be a Transformers collector!!!!!

I wonder if we'll get a Primus/Cybertron eventually. Or is he not a high-enough profile character?

After watching this I am so glad my more sensible nature told me not to drop money and back it. Maybe it is nice for some but after seeing it presented like this especially with a head that is not even connected.. Nope. I am happy that backers are getting their Unicron but it is honestly not for me.
