Greetings Seibertronians! Well it's been a long and wild ride since it was revealed that the first HasLab Transformer project, the chaos bringer himself, Unicron, was successfully funded. Now though, the final update has been sent to the backers of this gargantuan Transformer, asking them to verify their addresses, and that Unicron will be shipping out in late March!

This is what backers received:

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!

Since you placed your HasLab order back in 2019, and well, 2020 was a long year, we need you to confirm the address on file. To do so, please login to your Hasbro Pulse account, navigate to your orders, and locate your HasLab War For Cybertron Unicron order. When in the order, please confirm the address on file is valid. If you need to update your shipping information, please contact us.

Please note: your signature is required for the delivery, so please make sure you are home on the day of delivery to accept.

We are so excited for you to receive your very own Lord of Chaos!


So soon, the backers will be able to bask in the ultimate version of the iconic character, just in time to celebrate the films 35th anniversary (along side the Studio Series 86 figures)

Thats not all though, as over on HasbroPulse.com, they've posted the fifth installment of their own update about Unicron, in the form of a behind the scenes documentary. The documentary shows us how the parts are assembled and painted, all the way to being placed in the boxes big enough for Solid Snake to stealth in.

Check it out here.

With Unicron inbound, it seems some have been lucky enough to have been given one as youtube toy reviewer, Hobbymizer, has posted a preview to their YouTube channel, promising the review to drop on February 8th. Check out the teaser below.



Special thanks to users Sabrblade, Regimus Prime, and Dominus Prime for sharing these bits of news with us.

Are you one of the lucky people getting Unicron? Share your pictures of this titanic event in the Energon Pub, as we all celebrate his arrival, and that of the the animated movies 35th anniversary!

Share your thoughts in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews!

Agreed. I was waiting to see how long it'd take until someone noticed.
I've begun to regret backing it, Considering I was planning to display it in planet mode.
And then they go and change the most prominent planet mode feature, The one your eyes are immediately drawn to, And to be inaccurate, No less... :BANG_HEAD:

Probably someone looked at it and thought the blue would look nicer (which it does, it makes the teeth stand out more).

Though if you feel like it's a bad purchase, at least you have the knowledge that you could probably flip it quite easily enough, and maybe make some extra money as well

Wow. Those screwholes tho.
Imagine paying $600 for Hasbro to simply re-use the same arm (and maybe wing) on both sides.
(I know screwhole covers are included, I still think it's embarrassing for a figure that expensive.)

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

This is more than likely just a one-off. Most franchises don't get multiple crowdfunded items of this high-end price.

Besides, Planet Cybertron was way bigger than Unicron in the movie. ;)

I'm fine with waiting a bit. I'm more annoyed at the maw's color change. I wonder if Reprolabels can make a sticker fix for some of it.

This is a big bummer to me, as is the black plastic on his butt also. There were some design flaws that I had kept quiet about with this toy, including the panel cuts especially in planet mode with the "square" cuts around the circular "maw", which from a design or artistic aesthetic has bothered me since day one. I kept my mouth shut. But the final production piece having 2 major issues is a big bummer when we've spent this much money on this toy.

This isn't a regular retail figure that cost $20. This is a $600 toy that we made happen. It should be right ... at a minimum, we should be getting what we were shown without deviations. I expect these kind of glaring problems from the previous BotCon convention exclusives but not from official Hasbro or Takara Tomy products.

Of course I'll love this toy flaws and all. Unicron is still an amazing figure regardless. It's just a bummer to spend this much and get something with flaws on it instead of just being able to enjoy it the way we signed up for it. Hopefully someone will figure out how to show us how to paint these pieces or something ... but again, we shouldn't be having to customize a $600 figure. Or maybe Hasbro will offer up a fix for this since we all spent a lot of money on this.

Also saw in a video that it looks like Unicron's lower teeth aren't painted either but that seemed like less of a concern to me because you can take a silver sharpie to that.

Ok, not everything needs to be in scale. I certainly hope no one expects planet mode Unicron to be in scale with the Kingdom Autobot Ark toy. Unicron is still wildly out-of-scale. I'd gladly take a Primus toy to go alongside the Chaos Bringer.

If HasLab can do Star Wars twice then I don't see why they can't do Transformers twice. But I agree, no Primus. I'd rather see them do something like a proper stab at Fort Max for maybe $400 which is only a little more than we paid for the Encore.

It might not have been those two retailers specifically, but I'm pretty sure that's exactly what happened from what I've heard various retailers saying based on their order numbers. They gambled hugely, we all got Unicron, and their gamble will turn into a payday for them since a lot of people didn't order it for $600 but are now willing to pay $1,500. Go figure.

Transformers is plenty big enough. I'm sure we'll get another HasLab exclusive later down the road. Personally, I'm rooting for HasLab Devcon.

A bigger property that Hasbro has to pay out the nose to license, they can do whatever they want with Transformers for free.

Not necessarily. Pretty sure the "manufactured under license from TOMY Company, Ltd." doesn't mean entirely "free". I'm sure there are strings attached, though much better than licensing Star Wars toys from Lucasfilm/Disney.

As stated before, the brand is de jure owned by TakaraTomy believe it or not but Hasbro is putting in most of the design work. Comparing it to Star Wars is kinda comparing apples and oranges, as Star Wars is a movie franchise first and foremost, plus the fans are of a different caliber. Hell, they have an official Jedi religion in Australia, only Star Trek's Klingon language could top that. What do we have? :lol:

Of course, thinking more about it, something on a smaller scale might beg the question of why not just putting it in one of the many normal lines or releasing it as a normal retailer exclusive.

To use the Devcon example, why wouldn't they make a new Devcon at, say, Deluxe or Voyager class and just put it in either a mass retail Generations line or as a retailer exclusive (e.g. - Amazon, Hasbro Pulse, etc.)? Why would it take the likes of HasLab to release such a normal-sized figure?

(checks the vid) The lower teeth aren't painted? Geez. I guess it to match the faceless head, but come on, guys. If this were 3P I'd have expected it to be painted. I don't think I want to sharpie my $600 Transformer. I'll sticker it, though.

I don't think Primus would be worth it. Not to me, at least. As a character he's not nearly as important. Not every TF needs a rival.

I said it before and I'll say it again: I'd be interested in mass production of the G1 Unicron Prototype. Not for the same amount of money, but I'd back it. If they needed to add more, they could finish the G1 Arcee prototype (with the same inaccurate colors) so people could have a complete G1 movie cast in G1 form. It may be the same character, but it fills a totally different niche and is a real piece of history. I don't think it'd ever happen, though.

I hope that there is a plain outer box to this so the couriers don't smash that printed one up!
