We love you 3,000.

Today, August 24, 2019, we are officially 3,000 backers into the Haslab Unicron project. Which is a good sign considering the large price point! But sadly, that means that we are only 37.5% of the way to Unicron, and we only have 7 days left of the fundraising period. So while 3,000 is a good number, we are still a long ways away from the goal.

Now mind you, we will tell you that the 3,000 number is solely Hasbro Pulse pre-orders, so we are definitely a lot closer once we take into account all other sources from international markets and other sellers such as BigBadToyStore and TFSource. But we are also not safe either.

So with 1 week left, this is the time. If you have been on the fence about this project, now is the time to make the decision and jump in. If Unicron is to happen, we need to rally and show our support for the project. If we don't, Unicron goes away and 18 months of hard work is erased, and we lose the opportunity to own this one of a kind figure.

So this is the time! Help us make Unicron happen! Visit HasbroPulse.com in order to order your very own Unicron.

I want to help, I really do but $575 US is way too much.

If Hasbro want to ensure it has enough backers they need to make Unicron a bit smaller (just under Fortress Maximus' height) to reduce the amount of materials used and declare it the titan class for WFC series 3 which will be the series of 2021, the year Unicron is supposed to be released. Making it available everywhere would help too.

I think just extending the deadline or giving another try later in the year when people are not short on funds would do it. I wouldn’t want to see this thing shrunk any

....I can’t. I want to, but I can’t. Too much money in such short notice. I still have to preorder Omega Supreme, and Lord knows I need to start saving.

It really doesn't. It is complex with lots of moving parts, but isn't "fiddly" like, say, MP-36 Megatron with lots of tiny parts. I think a lot of people are intimidated by transforming something that big on a stand, but it's a different type of challenge.

There are some people making note that they're specifically talking about "Hasbro-affiliated" retailers, postulating that there are even more orders from retailers that aren't directly partnering with Hasbro the way TakaraTomy Mall in Japan and EB Games and Zing in Australia are.

This was my belief as well. The only ones they can really get an idea from is the ones directly affiliated with them and that's still with a week remaining. If we can hope that Pulse will get a burst in its final days then those other sources should as well. Then factor in the third party orders which may or may not already be included depending on when they're placing their orders (if they can only place them in fives then there's no good reason to wait and do them all at the end). We're finally over the half way point, hopefully that'll finally motivate some people to get in.

Wow...I would LOVE to help on this but it's just way too expensive :-( If only Hasbro could scale it down to Titan scale.

The high price and short notice are exactly why I opted to go with the more feasible route of preordering Unicron from TFSource and saving up the money over the steady course of a year and a half.

Reducing his size to that of a Titan would be pointless.

He's not a Titan.

He's Unicron.

He's a class unto himself.

Titans are the biggest of Transformers.

This guy is a GOD.

It's especially good since TFSource, unlike other options, has no down payment for their preorder.

Again, would if I could, but it's beyond me. I'm a highschooler only barely managing to budget in my collection. I won't be able to get together the money in time, and with my current situation saving up for over a year isn't a good alternative either.

Meaning that if you cancel the order yourself, you won't get the deposit back.

Thank you!!

They already made a smaller Unicron if you want one. Making Unicron a Titan would be a sleight against Titans.

Pfft! I’d settle for Leader class. I don’t need something that big to appreciate it.

It’s too big and too expensive. I commend anyone contributing but I can’t justify it. You can’t play with something that big. Dust collector

Perhaps this is a stupid question, but I'm curious.. I put in an order for 2 Unicrons - does this mean that I am counted as 1 backer or 2 backers?

Did the number of backers change when you ordered your second one?

I believe it counts as two from what I've heard. I may be wrong though.

Posted by Stargrave on August 25th, 2019 @ 1:17am CDT
I was being facetious. I believe as it says on the page ‘number of backers’ they’re counting units as backers. I would categorize that as a laypersons understanding we’re all thinking 8,000 Unicrons.

Limit five per transaction, or units total, not five per backer.

They’re waiting for 8,000 Unicrons.

I'm not asking the literal meaning. I'm noting that, contrary to Sabr's statement, TFsource does appear to in fact require a down payment.
