"Give me your face!" Any Transformers fans that were forged over the length of the Transformers live action movies no doubt has that heroic phrase uttered by none other than Optimus Prime himself etched in their brain. Well if you thought him bringing that level of facial justice to the Fallen was awesome, how about bringing it to the Chaos Bringer Unicron himself? That's right Seibertronians revealed today by The Collector's Alliance on Facebook via Comicbook.com (thanks Sabrblade!) is the newly revealed feature of the Haslab Unicron crowdfunded project - a detachable head and face plate!

Unicron appears to have a completely different face you can pop on revealing a fearsome level of detailed bot brains behind it.

The iconic finale of the animated movie is represented here where the Matrix tore the turquoise titan asunder leaving his head orbiting Cybertron for all eternity as the lone reminder of the greatest Transformer battle ever.
Here's a short video preview:


You can put in your order for Unicron at Haslab here. There's only 16 days 12 hours and 8 minutes left so act fast!

It's nice that the head is removable but does it actually matter? Why would you want the head to come off? Though on the other hand, I'm guessing the head coming off will make it easier to swap faces.

So you can recreate his head blowing the heck off at the end of the 86 movie :twisted: yeah baby.

I expected something like this. We probably all were. My only complaint about this feature is that the neck doesn't have some detail that looks like tubes and such from the movie detachment, though that is a small issue.

Hopefully, they will next reveal teeny, tiny Dinobots that we can attach to his butt.

Great call! I'm thinking some insane blast effects - fire breath, explosions, eye blasts maybe, I don't know. Just accessories we haven't seen with Jetfire or Omega like multi-part fireblasts in that cool bluegreen Unicron would shoot in the final battle.

I would love to see somewhere in there the brain module with all the screens or a smelting pool when you open his stomach things like that would be crazy cool.

At first I questioned why this would be a feature since most people would probably want him to have his head attached, and then I realized that hey, if you display him in planet mode, you can have his head detached and separated somewhere on your shelf.

That is pretty awesome. I like the damaged face plate. I wonder if we will be able to put him in planet mode while leaving the head out. I am definitely thinking I will be making the head orbit my Primus/Cybertron.

If this actually goes through, I will be 100% getting a big styrofoam ball to turn into a planet for Unicron to munch on.

OKAy, that’s actually dope as hell.

....but it doesn’t change the fact that I’m a semi-responsible adult with bills, groceries, etc. Had they announced this with more time for us to save, I’dve been all for this. $600 in such short notice is impossible for me. I’ll stick with my childhood Armada Unicron I suppose.

THis figure have some nice features sadly it will never become reality to be made unless Hasbro decides to extend deadline 16 days and backers are at 2564 still not at halfway point any updates on this toy pointless if deadline will not be extended

Once again ...

The Pulse total does NOT currently include orders from the likes of TTMall or EB Games/Zing (Australia) and various other online retailers.

That number is only counting the Hasbro Pulse orders. You're forgetting all of the orders placed through international venues and alternative retailers like BBTS and TFsource, whose orders likely won't be added to the number until closer to the deadline.

Removable head and swappable face are nice and all, but (really hate to be that guy) what about a, well, swappable beard? I mean, everyone wants the beard, right?

...right?

Should we have perhaps seen this swap-able face coming? In retrospect it's hilariously obvious, but are there any other prototype images that could give us hints to other yet to be revealed features?
