Transformers News: Haslab Opens Unicron Questions Up to Instagram

Posted to the official Transformers page on Instagram today is a short video showing Global Design Manager John Warden giving everyone the opportunity to ask their Unicron questions to be answered next week. Click the link HERE to go to the Instagram page and post your question, but everyone should probably take a moment to scroll through the questions already asked as there appear to be multiple variations of the questions that have already been posed in our own forums, some voicing their frustrations with tact, others not so much so reader beware.

Even though the video is quite short John again mentions even more reveals soon to come...

I'd love to see this, if only Instagram had a competent sign up system.

what would be cool is to have just the head but make as big as the titan class figures and make it like a playset base so regular figures can fit inside of it :-?

:-D


This is one of the reasons why I’m hesitant on this. To me, Unicron must have a beard, it’s one of the signature things about him.


Well maybe a 3rd Party can produce an Add On piece or maybe a special type of pen with the proper ink that simply goes on and wipes off for one's own preference...I'm just sayin'. :)) :VEHI:

There is also this enormous Unicron Head (approximately 23.5 inches tall) that Art Storm made back in 2015:

the only question I would have asked is time I need more time I literally just got a raise at work I want to pay off some back bills and then I'm going to purchase two of these things please extend the time

Is it weird that I really hope it gets backed, even though there's no way I'd ever be able to afford it?

Also, some people posting on the Instagram Q&A really have no idea about how much it costs to manufacture anything.

I know KO and zeta toys are going to be making third-party close ones but I really want the official instead of the knock-offs. the reason why is because my son lives at his house and he lives at his mom's house. And she doesn't buy him anything just me

We won't know proper backing numbers till all the third party sites submit their numbers to hasbro. The figure we have is just those backing on pulse.

Has Hasbro actually responded to any of the questions yet? It's been up for almost a full day now.

Huh?

He wants smaller and cheaper I'm guessing.

I'd rather have a new mold than start with the Armada base, but I agree that I'd rather it be smaller and cheaper. Unicron can never scale anyways, so having him be even Titan class doesn't really matter that much to me, I'd take a figure the same size as the Armada one with some major updates. It would also be more fun to compare them afterwards too, and he might still scale nicely with Primus in Cybertron mode. Not to mention, this guy literally can't fit on any shelf I have, I want him but at the same time I don't because of just how huge he is. I guess I'm just not in the target audience..

If Unicron's head is detachable, has anyone wondered if they have a more accurate G1 cartoon head tooled up with a proper goatee and smaller horns? Seeing the head detaches just makes me want an alternate head that is more cartoon accurate, perhaps one with an interchangeable eye feature so that you can replicate the shattered eyes from the end of the movie.

I know it was an accepted thing by Beast Wars, but teeth on Transformers really creep me out. It is just wrong [-(
