Transformers News: Haslab Unicron Behind the Artist Marcelo Matere Poster Official Video on YouTube

Thanks to an update from the Transformers Official YouTube page we have a cool Friday treat for you disciples of Unicron out there. In this short video you get to see the breakdowns and making-of the official poster for the HasLab Unicron project done by none other than Marcelo Matere!

Here's the word from Hasbro on Unicron:
"UNICRON stands alone as the most menacing figure in TRANSFORMERS lore, capable of devouring entire worlds and civilizations. He debuted in the 1986 film Transformers: The Movie and his insatiable appetite nearly brought the entire universe to its knees. But his legacy transcends both space and time.

The gigantic UNICRON would be the largest TRANSFORMERS figure ever created, taking the title from the previous record-holder, FORTRESS MAXIMUS. Artists and designers from Takara Tomy and Hasbro are working to capture the intricate details and features of the relentless Chaos Bringer to make this the most accurate UNICRON fans have ever seen.

In his immense robot mode, this version of UNICRON is over 27” tall and has more than 50 points of articulation. Includes fine pose-ability, such as movable eyes, fingers, mouth, and even teeth. He converts into a terrifying planet mode that is a stunning 30” in diameter. The planet mode features the iconic planet-eating jaws, geared to open so UNICRON can devour unassuming worlds. The planet mode also features a series of posable planetary rings. Comes with a stand for posing both planet & robot mode."





Unicron is on his way to our planet as we speak Seibertronians! Only the combined power of our fandom united can convert this planetary threat into a child sized toy ready to dominate our collections. Till all are one!

If you haven't backed this project yet there's still time but not much - just click HERE to head to Hasbro Pulse and put in your order for Unicron today!
If Unicron does not meet the 8,000 backers needed HE WILL NOT BE MADE!

Enjoy the view and as always stay tuned to Seibertron for the ultimate in Transformers news!

Dear universal Primus,

I really, really, reeeeeally need you to make this Haslab Unicron fan sourcing project become a reality. I've literally gambled my entire Transformers Armada MISB collection and bagged and boarded Dream Wave Armada/Energon comic collection including the poster book and 3 issue Armada encyclopedia, to afford this thing. I know I'm crazy for doing so but I have faith in you and in this masterpiece that Hasbro and Takara have engineered. I loved that collection and would giggle like a spoiled private school boy whenever a reissue Generations version of Armada Starscream or Armada Megatron would be released because I already owned the original releases. Forgive me for breaking your third commandment "Thou shall not commit collector snobitry" and sticking my nose up at those subsequent offerings. That collection is gone now and I vow not to look back on it so I may avoid you turning me in to a pillar of rust, especially if you bless me and all of the Seibertronian believers with the chaos bringer. I will not worship him as an idol, I promise, but I have already prepared a place for him far atop my Detolf Cabinet with "The Covenant of Primus" hanging just above. All these things I pray in the name of your son who sacrificed himself within the first 20 minutes of the movie and rose again in season 3.

ABOT :BOT:

Red leader of Kapow Toys posted to TFW to chime in on why it has taken so long for Kapow to get in on the Haslab Unicron action:
it's genuinely been in the works for a while now, the reason its taken so long is it needs to be signed off by the USA which happened yesterday ( 17th ) the brexit thing is a pain for this project and its something we're discussing with them at the moment.

And yeah in days gone we weren't geared up for EU and we def cannot please everyone, everyone has good and bad to say about all retailers but I promise you this we'll try our best to help out Europe with this project via the official channels and have already been in contact with an EU based business with regard to the assisting us.
So, yeah, blame Brexit.

I will be honest I have not dedicated my brain to wrapping around Brexit. I probably know more about Cybertronian politics than Earth politics :lol:
Can you explain for me how you think it impacted or complicated things? Or is it just going to get too political. Just genuinely curious no dog in the fight or anything.

In a nutshell, the UK will no longer be part of the larger European Economic Union, and will form its own separate economic entity. However, the conditions and date are still not agreed upon even after all those years, thanks to all the bickering in parliament.

Blaming the "delay" on Brexit is BS, because it hasn't actually happened yet and wouldn't have even been a factor in the original August 31st release window. They are just back peddling excuses as to why in it took Hasbro so long to pull their head out of their exhaust port and realise the fanbase extends beyond the US border.

Also they didn't get the numbers they wanted from the US alone and so went about retroactively making the crowdfunding global. That being the only reason they did so.

The Kapow Link


£604.99

DUE EARLY 2021 - NO DEPOSIT AVAILABLE DUE TO HASBRO REQUIRING THE BALANCE OF THE CROWDFUND TO COMMENCE PRODUCTION OCTOBER 2019 - THIS PRODUCT IS NON REFUNDABLE IF IT MEETS THE BACKING TARGET AND MOVES TO PRODUCTION.

All figures will ship directly from our warehouse in the United Kingdom on release


UK Customers - all taxes are paid and you will incure no further costs after the initial purchase .

EU Customers - due to the United Kingdom possibly leaving the European Union in the next 12 months you may be liable to any customs duties levied by your respective country.


The nebulous nature of the emboldened line did make me chuckle :lol:

Lithone, Moon Base 1, Moon Base 2... That's it. Not quite The Universe, was it :???:

Until they push back the deadline.. again. It is just a false negative at this point >:oP

I don't see any reason other then unfounded pessimism to not take what Kapow said at face value. Plus Brexit hasn't happened yet but it will have by the time unicron is released, so all those ducks need to be lined up first. I know you don't want this made but please try to think of the people who do want this beast made. Also never assume anything i.e. Deadline extension, as you know what they say about assumptions

I would always have welcomed a Unicron figure of any size, just not one made through the practices they had used here.


ZeroWolf wrote: Also never assume anything i.e. Deadline extension, as you know what they say about assumptions


Except for the established precedent. We had similar lines of hyperbole with the initial date in August. That was guaranteed to be the absolute final date for the crowdfunding.. EVER. Spoilers: It wasn't. ;)

I still don't see the problem with their methods, I highly doubt they will abuse this (especially after how much dragging this campaign has gone on)

Fellow Seibertronian Sabrblade found a note from Kapow Toys, the exclusive retailer for the Haslab Unicron in the UK, saying that the deal to get Unicron in the UK was in the works for a while. They offer reasons why it could not be offerred earlier and Brexit is explicitly mentioned, as you will see below. For those unaware, Brexist reffers to the vote done by British citizens who chose in favour of Britain seperating from the European Union.

For people in the UK, they can get Unicron here while those in the US and Canada can get him here.

Don't be mistaken, Brexit has been playing havoc with a lot of companies in, and doing business with, the UK with some at the point of collapse (the already struggling Thomas Cook being the latest victim). Breaking off from an economic zone to (re)start your own is not taken lightly. >:oP

Also remember unicron would release after Brexit had happened which could complicate matters when it came to sending them home.
