The chaos bringer is coming.

As of this moment, 10:22pm on October 5, 2019, roughly 26 hours before the final deadline, Unicron has made it. Reaching 8,000 backers per the Hasbro Pulse number, this means that we can finally announce to much fanfare and excitement that he will go into production!

Unicron is the first Transformers Haslab project, and he has successfully reached his goal. He will now move into production for a January 2021 release date. He stands 27 inches tall in robot mode, 30 inches in diameter in planet mode, and features a host of extra features such as a ton of articulation, the Autobot shuttle, a mini Galvatron and Hot Rod, interchangeable chins, and more!

If you still want to place your order, head on over to Hasbro Pulse, any of our sponsors, Kapow Toys if you are in the UK, and EB Games or Zing if you are Australia to jump on the wagon and make sure you don't miss out!

Congratulations everyone! We did it!

Evil will always triumph...because Good is dumb.

I was putting in my order at 7,997, and after I'd finished, it was at 8,006. :KREMZEEK:

I'm gonna put the suggestion out there that there will be a HasLab Primus at some point, which will be a retool of this figure.

A retool at THIS price? No thank you. For this price I'd demand an all-new mould.

That said, I'm not sure Primus / Cybertron is really the way to go. Cybertron rarely Transforms in the TF universe. Only in Cybertron and the tail end of Lost Light, right? He was just this chamber in the comics.

For all the hate and doubt that it got, I never doubted that it would be backed.

As of this post an extra 232 Unicrons shall be made.

Wonder how much more the number will climb now that it is over?

Edit: Only a few minutes later and that number is now an extra 262, it's climbing up fast

I don't know who else they would do. I can't think of anyone (outside of Primus) that would legitimately qualify for this scale of figure. THe Ark? Sure, but that's not something I'd back...especially as it wouldn't transform. The Nemesis? Same. Let's hold of on any speculation at this point though...we need cake and whiskey to celebrate.

A big non transforming Ark for figures would be amazing to have, it would be fairly empty space on the inside thus the majority of the plastic could just be the outside of it making the overall mass not that much compared to Unicron who is filled inside and out.

So hollow but solid if that makes any sense.

Or, what if about we just let this Unicron be a one-of-a-kind Planet Class toy of its own so we don't have to go through dropping this much money on a crowdfunded Transformer ever again? ;)

If Hasbro still owns the G.I. Joe brand... a USS Flag that transforms into Broadside would work for me
