Hasbro has revealed their latest HasLab crowdfunding effort, which gives Transformers fans the largest creation to date, with Unicron…
I’m not a huge Transformers fan, though I enjoy the original series (plus several of the more modern ones), and definitely don’t collect any of the toys. Even so, I can’t deny the insane amount of awesome this newly revealed Unicron Transformer toy brings to the table.
Just ahead of San Diego Comic-Con, Hasbro has revealed a new HasLab project (on top of their life-sized Cookie Monster). Like their Star Wars Sail Barge from before, in order for this incredible toy to be made, backers will have to thrown down their support in monetary form. This thing is an absolute BEAST, however, and I can see eager Transformers fans seeing the $574.99 price tag as more than justifiable.
In it’s planet form, it comes with a stand and weighs a whopping 19 pounds. When transformed, it stands at 27″ tall and ready to intimidate any other toy you have at your disposal. Couple that with 50 points of articulation and this toy is just badass all around:
UNICRON stands alone as the most menacing figure in TRANSFORMERS lore, capable of devouring entire worlds and civilizations. He debuted in the 1986 film Transformers: The Movie and his insatiable appetite nearly brought the entire universe to its knees. But his legacy transcends both space and time.
The gigantic UNICRON would be the largest TRANSFORMERS figure ever created, taking the title from the previous record-holder, FORTRESS MAXIMUS. Artists and designers from Takara Tomy and Hasbro are working to capture the intricate details and features of the relentless Chaos Bringer to make this the most accurate UNICRON fans have ever seen.
In his immense robot mode, this version of UNICRON is over 27” tall and has more than 50 points of articulation. Includes fine pose-ability, such as movable eyes, fingers, mouth, and even teeth. He converts into a terrifying planet mode that is a stunning 30” in diameter. The planet mode features the iconic planet-eating jaws, geared to open so UNICRON can devour unassuming worlds. The planet mode also features a series of posable planetary rings. Comes with a stand for posing both planet & robot mode.
In order for Unicron to become a reality, a minimum of 8,000 orders will need to be placed by August 31, 2019. That gives you just a month and a half to get your order in HERE.
