Transformers War for Cybertron Unicron Reveals New Features and Accessories!

Beware the inescapable clutches of the mighty Unicron! The already formidable hands of the Chaos Bringer will now have 15 points of articulation, 3 per finger, so Unicron can better grasp the inferior bots he wishes to devour. The included Galvatron and newly added Hot Rod slug figures make the perfect snacks!

With the new to-scale Hot Rod slug figure, fans can re-imagine the epic 1986 movie scene where Hot Rod defeats the menacing Planet Eater! Unicron will also now come with an Autobot shuttle ship inspired by the movie!

And when fans play out the part where the Bringer of Chaos's head flies off into space, now it can appear to float! Unicron will come with a clear premium posable headstand to display his dismembered head in all its glory. The headstand also features posts to pose the included mini figures.

The Transformers War for Cybertron Unicron figure is part of Hasbro's crowdfunding platform, HasLab. Remember, if the project doesn’t reach 8,000 backers by October 6th, the product will not move into production. Also, orders for Unicron will no longer be accepted after October 6th. If you want to add this once-in-a-lifetime figure to your Transformers collection, you must back this project before the deadline. You can back this project at HasbroPulse.com.

**Image of Unicron’s Hand is a grey prototype. Final hand will have deco.

I was indeed inacceptable for a 600$US figure. Especially when they boasted high posability.

There we go ... they had to make SOMETHING exclusive for the Hasbro Pulse backers.

Damn those foreigners taking all our digital comics!

Still, digital.
What's the point of exclusivity again? Digital have no value because it's going to be torrented just a few hours after it become available.

Print as actual physical comics that would be sent only to the backers as a bonus exclusive collector item and now we're talking.

Another suggestion to Hasbro:

Want to put Unicron over the top, easy? Make a miniature Grimlock figure that would attach to Unicron's butt so he could...well, you know! ;)^

Plus, it's really only the cover that's new. The story itself is just a reprint of the existing adaptation IDW did over a decade ago, which isn't exactly something people are clamoring for.

And even if the cover is the only exclusive, it really isn't since it's been posted right there on Hasbro Pulse for anyone and everyone to behold in full size just by clicking on it, pretty much making any and all exclusivity about this deal null and void.

You guys and your points ... you're totally smothering my "Hasbro hates foreigners" argument I'm trying to get going here. Image

Guess I'm just a little bummed that this comic not only isn't the thing that Ron Friedman and Flint Dille said they'd make if Unicron gets funded, but is just that same doggone TFTM adaptation again.

Good for the new posable hands. Much better.

i also kinda really like the shuttle with Hot Rod. That's a nice touch.

And with the stand for the head, maybe I'll display him in Planet mode with the head on a separate stand!

Whoa, hold up: it dropped?! :shock:


Well, they did add a little over a thousand backers since last night, so yeah.

I had been doing this to see when the break point was until people started getting all testy about how I was doing it.


That happened a few pages back, I love it though.

while the Autobot shuttle is nice and all, as is the hotrod (is that the classics version or the tr version?) I don't understand why the shuttle is the ship they chose to include here. of all the spaceships I would associate with Unicron, this isn't one of them. Why not Galvatrons flagship the Conquest? Ya know, the ship unicron spat out for him? Or either the Quintesson or Junkion ships. (actually why not all 3?)

also I second the motion for a grimlock to kick butt

Galvatron's ship would make more sense, but I'm not buying this for a buncha tiny spaceships

I'm looking at the movie poster where this spaceship is shown; maybe it's in reference to that..

It's the TR design for Hot Rod.

Galvatron's ship was the Revenge.

thats strange, I always remember it being called the conquest... I wonder where I got that from then. is there a transformers ship named conquest? either way, my point still stands. Hasbro is giving us the wrong ship (still want the autobot shuttle though =P)

There's a G.I. Joe figure jet called the Conquest X-30 that appeared in some Transformers comics, but there only purely Transformers thing with the word in its name is the Matrix of Conquest.
