This campaign will move into production when it reaches its minimum backing goal. We will stop taking backers at 11:59 PM EST on 08.31.2019.

The Lord of Chaos. The Planet Eater. The Chaos Bringer. 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.

“I have summoned you here for a purpose.” - Unicron

Transformers fans may be mere humans, inhabiting a miniscule planet hardly worth consuming, but they are some of the most passionate fans out there. That’s why HASLAB, the Hasbro Pulse crowdsourcing platform, is the place to awaken such a massive project.

Introducing the first ever Transformers HASLAB project: Transformers War For Cybertron Unicron.

“Then it pleases me to be the first.” - Unicron

Join us in a historic opportunity to celebrate the legendary Unicron with a figure whose features, detail, and scale are worthy of his gigantic legacy.

This campaign will move into production when it reaches its minimum goal of 8,000 backers. All support must be received by 11:59 PM EST on August 31, 2019. If the campaign is successful your payment method will be charged on August 31, 2019. Orders are estimated to ship in early 2021.

Unicron already backed more than Cookie Monster, at twice the cost!





Robot Mode

Cower in fear as you come face to face with the mighty Unicron in his intimidating robot mode, standing at over 27” tall.

The legendary fiend moves methodically with more than 50 points of articulation.

He sets his intimidating glare on his enemies with movable eyes.




With his articulated fingers, he clutches the air menacingly and makes fists full of his infinite fury.

He insults pitiful lesser beings through his articulated mouth and grins malevolently with his movable teeth.









Planet Mode

Convert and bring forth the terrifying planet mode of Unicron, a stunning 30” in diameter.

His iconic planet-eating jaws are geared to open so the vicious Planet Eater can devour unassuming worlds.

The Chaos Bringer's imposing presence is amplified by his massive posable planetary rings.

To support the substantial weight of the approximate 19-pound villainous planet, Unicron requires a custom stand.

Do not be fooled. The premium detail and deco are, indeed, inspired by classic 1986 movie, but it is not, in fact, The Lord of Chaos himself.

hasbropulse No Cookie Monster would be complete without a COOKIE to go along with it! HASLAB Cookie Monster Replica comes with a plush chocolate chip cookie (so it won’t spoil) for Cookie Monster to pose with and munch. “Om nom nom!”

Unicron is almost ready for what we call tool start.

Tool start is when we begin the process of manufacturing the tools, or molds, that will be used to create each piece of this massive figure. However, before tool start, we need a tool layout. A tool layout is the plan that organizes all the pieces that make up the figure into different tools. One tool might make five small pieces, while another tool might make one big one. The number of pieces in a tool vary based on the material, color and size.
 
To plan this out we used what's called a tooling model, a grown physical model of the figure. We took the Unicron tooling model apart, laying out approximately 372 pieces, so that we could plan which pieces go into which tools. It was sort of like when Rodimus Prime blew up Unicron at the end of the 1986 film. Pieces of him, everywhere.
 
We can only run one type of material in a tool at a time, so we had to figure out which parts of Unicron would call for the same material. We also had to consider the strength and durability of certain plastics. Unicron will be made of a total of 6 different types of plastic. If you watch our update video, you might catch big bold letters like ABS, PP or PA on the tool layout sheets. We didn't get the alphabet mixed up; those identify the different types of plastic.

Beyond material, we also needed to consider the color of the pieces and which combination of pieces best fit into one tool. Ultimately it came out to 59 different tools, which include tools for the to-scale shuttle ship, Galvatron, and Hot Rod slug figures. That's double the number of tools used in the average Titan Class figure!
 
So, that's where we're at. After a trip to Hong Kong, two very long days, coffee, about 50 people all working and planning together, and coffee, we have a tool layout. That tool layout will be used to create the tools into which we'll inject various types of melted plastics. Once they cool, what we'll pull out will be the individual pieces that will make up a Unicron figure. Then, those pieces will all be hand-painted and assembled into the insatiable Planet Eater!
