Although some have speculated live video of Unicron himself is impossible due to the gravitational shear affecting the ability for electronics to capture light waves our own troops on the war room, ahem, show room floor of #SDCC2019 have braved the front lines and secured actual video footage of the Chaos Bringer himself! That's right Seibertron is bringing you the first video coverage of Unicron!

With about six and a half minutes of pans around the entire bot you get a great view of the amazing engineering that had to have gone into what is essentially a child sized Transformer. A very, large, child. With fangs. You know the kind I'm talking about. Ok maybe that's just my neighborhood. Alas! On with the show! And make sure and stay tuned to Seibertron for the latest in #SDCC2019 Transformers news!

Nice to see the stand can still work for the bot mode. However, is it mandatory? I wonder if he can do some nice poses and stand on his own? Guess we will have to wait to find out.

As for the backpack, eh it could be worst. That perfectly ROUND planet mode have to go somewhere.

I have Armada Unicron (with Throne of Chaos) and "Amazon" Unicron. But I never expected that my 3rd Unicron would be this crazy GIANT thing! :shock:
I mean, damn, it is a few dollars above CAN900$ for me, factoring shipping and taxes. At that's the regular normal, non-scalper price. At least compared to Optimus 3.0, I will have LOTS of bot for my bucks!

If you look closely, it looks like the bulkiness of the backpack is being exacerbated by the fact it's lifted up to make room for the stand to plug in, without the stand I'd imagine it'd fold down at least a bit more.

With regards to the stand, I don't think the final figure will need the stand to stand up in robot mode, it's just that this is a prototype that is probably less sturdy and less finished than the final figure, and it's displayed where hundreds if not thousands of people will be walking around near it constantly vibrating the ground, so it needs support to stay standing.

Yup. I think that's probably it and also why he's in such a static pose.

My serious side wish for the campaign to fail so I don't have to spend that CAN900$+ on Unicron.

But my frosty side want him to succeed so that I can have a GOD at home.

So finally chiming in, even if unicron is in my top 3 fave characters, I find myself feeling nothing towards this figure; even if I had the money and patience, I have so many important memories towards the armada figure being my first 'big' purchase as a child that I could never replace it in my heart; but this thing definitely rocks

Oh, rest assured, even if I were to scrounge up the money for this bad boy, I wouldn't be replacing either my Armada or Amazon Unicrons. In fact, I'd actually like to get my hands on both the Energon and Takara 2010 Unicrons and have all four Supreme class Unicrons in robot mode positioned underneath this Unicron in planet mode as though they were all trying to hold up this big one like so:

i realyl can't help but feel they could've handled the kibble better. having a big ol' bugshell on his back and legs makes his look worse than the armada guy. that being said, he still looks increadible, and goddamn do i wish i could get him.

Can we consider this Unicron a "Masterpiece Unicron"?

Because it kinda feel like it is.

I feel like this thing a unique entity that transcends even the Masterpiece label.

This make me wonder. Will the units produced be limited at the initial 8K+ backed, or will they make more afterward?

BTW, 8K unite minimum mean they need to raise 4.6 millions dollars to greenlit production. This is kinda epic.

I saw what you did there.


On my end, I'm full "MGTOW" so it's of no issue for me! Seriously, I dodged so many bullets this way that you could call me "Neo".

ummmm...that's exactly what it means. It's just Hasbro's version of a Kickstarter.

What has me curious, because he's not getting a retail release, does he still fall under all the toy production rules? Does he have to pass a drop test etc?

How did things turn out for the Jabba sail barge? Did they make more of that or just the initial number?

I'm pretty sure if that thing would drop on anyone's head, it would kill. 8-}
