Greetings Seibertronians! Hasbro have taken to their official YouTube channel to celebrate the arrival of HasLab Unicron in the homes of many of their fans with an video showing how to transform the Chaos Bringer!



The video will take you through the Transformation in its 15 minutes runtime.

It was boasted that HasLab Unicron would take an hour to transform at first, due to his enormous size and the plates that made up his planet mode surface.

Want to see more of the biggest Transformer ever made, be sure to check out Seibertrons own galleries, so big it had to be split in two!

Have you got your chaos bringer? Share with us his new out of box home!

Shout out in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews!

For anyone that already has their bot: once attached, are the spike strips removable? I'm thinking that the bot mode might look a bit cleaner with the strips removed and the planet mode pinchers tucked in downward.
If anyone would post a picture of how that would look, that would be very cool.

Left removed. Right normal. You tell me which looks better

I'm leaning towards right normal.

I'm more for the left removed, with the robot mode looking cleaner. That said, when I first watched a Japanese review including the 30 min. long transformation (he was *really* careful and showing off connection points), I was aghast of how the entire shell is just collapsed on his back and legs. What really got me though, was the soft rubber spike strips just... hanging loose. I got over the first, much less the second.

I was reminded of peeling mandarins, really :lol:

:EDIT: Just an addition I'd like to make: whoever designed the rings and their transformation has to be a mathematician, specialising in circular geometry. He deserves an award!

I think I'm liking the removed spikes, but maybe not the horns pointed down (I thought they would tuck in more).

I'm trying to decide whether or not to keep mine. Bought it when I was employed and had (presumably) steady funds; now I'm unemployed and money is tight.

I have a question that relates to this thread, kind of. I bought Unicron and he was just delivered but does anyone know who toyhax is? Idk how to contact them directly, I’m praying for the day they release a sticker set for this guy. I’ve been applying the g1 fort max upgrade set for weeks in preparation and I’m just floored with the quality they’re so good just make some for Unicron ples

Anybody else have their Unicron set up with any of his heralds/minions standing with him? I've got mine set up with all three Blentrons standing at his feet (yes, even a legit Latolata, not Injector).

That sounds pretty cool. I always liked those characters in BW Neo...

Hmm... I'm sensing a pattern...

Galvatron, Cyclonus, Scourge
Elphaorpha, Latolata, Drancron
Hook, Line, Sinker (sorry can't say that last one without laughing) :lol:

Then Armada broke it with first just Sideways and then just him and Thrust (who had to be convinced to side with Unicron rather than always being his minion).

I'm thinking of doing that with some of my extra ones, but for the most part I'm going to be sticking my Unicrons together. So far I've got Armada, Encore, TT 2010, and just paid too much for an Energon Unicron. :lol: Plus a bunch of the smaller Unicrons I have kicking around. They're all going on top of a short and wide book shelf that should be plenty deep for the the big guy. It's going to be a process since I'm redoing the entire room and most stuff is in boxes and a lot of stuff has bled into the hall and living room but it'll look great when it's done!

It's a little crazy to me how this is the most important TF release in a long while and even it falls into the trap of once we get it, we stop talking about it.

On that note...one interesting thing that happened was that the box for Unicron was like, half an inch too wide to fit through my attic door.

Hope your attic is climate controlled or that cardboard may go bad over time.

My Unicron finally came in. And it was within a larger box, so it's in perfect condition! But I have nowhere to put said box so it just goes in the basement.

Grey maw or no grey maw in person he is a sight to behold! I haven't finished assembling him yet, just gonna enjoy him in planet mode for a bit.

For Armada ... wouldn't it be Thrust, Sideways, and Nemesis Prime? It's not quite the same as the other unholy trios, but it's still three, right?

Universe really broke the pattern, though. I didn't get all of them, but I got Razorclaw, Nemesis, and Thrust ... but they made a lot of the BW recolors Unicron minions, so there was a ton.

I actually had a section for "Unicron Heralds" or any other high-ranking position within the God of Chaos hierarchy:

Generation 1
Galvatron
Cyclonus
Scourge

Beast Wars Neo
Drancron
Elphaorpha
Latolata

Armada
Sideways

Energon
Airazor
Cheetor
Rhinox
Terrorsaur

Universe
First Set
Razorclaw
Tankor
Obisidian
Reptilion
(Strika)

Second Set
Nemesis Prime
Ramjet

That's as far as I got :lol:

Well, I noticed some paint chips on Uni's head after the first transformation. Small, but there. :roll:

edit:
Mixed up some acrylic paint I had laying around for a good enough touch up. It'll do. I feel dumb, but I plan to paint or sharpie his teeth anyway.

Next time I transform him I'll just detach the head.

How? Doesn't the head have to be removed to transform?

You don't have to remove it, no.

Although I suppose you should remove it.
