30 minutes left to get this piece of TF History!
shh careful using that word
I think there's a lot of us who see you three as some top tier contributors to this thread.
1. Cannibalchow for the enthusiasm, positive vibes, and lucky roo sona
2. Hendrijr for having the best inside Intel and the courage to not just bring the goods to us, but to stand by it as well.
3. And you, TranslucentBag, for the best graphs a Unicron fan could wish for, and for the insight and summaries you saw from said info.
Bring these extras to Unicron for the successful crowdfund to celebrate...
1. Plushy cannibalchow unicron roo
2. Soundwave and laserbeak slugs
3. Graphguy laminated poster of the final Unicron tally
Just saying', that would be awesome.
Less than 30minutes remaining!!!
I am so torn on this. For the most part, I agree with a lot of the gripes that people have with the robot mode, Unicron has a lot of unsightly kibble on his back and legs. If I was to get him however, I would display him in planet mode and planet mode looks absolutely stunning to me. I just have a hard time justifying the price and if he is worth it.
The other reason I am hesitant is that I wonder if this is really the last Unicron they will ever make. If there's one thing I have learned about Hasbro, they will try to milk as much as they can out of retools, repaints, reissues, etc... I mean I feel like we just got a rude reminder of it with what they did to us with characters in Siege that got immediately obsoleted by Earthrise. It makes me wonder if in the future there will be an even better version of Unicron. And by future, I don't mean near future, but it could be as far away as 10 years from now. I have 25 minutes to decide... dunno what to do!
i wonder if they put the extension on too early....
im just happy I'm not bottom last
Well down to the wire. I think I’ve decided to pass. The storage is really my biggest issue. And I like Unicron, but he’s not special enough to me to justify that price. I hope those of you who buy him love him though.
I don't know either.
It's over $500. I used to buy the G1 Japan stuff which got pricey.
I still collect, but $500 gets numerous figures (or five titans)... So which would one rather choose?
Probably not until 2024. Like 5 or 6 years. It took a long time for them to announce this after the Sail Barge shipped. Over a year. Part of that could have been they needed to develop and stand up Hasbro Pulse and move Haslab into it. But it could just be the rate they want to do.
Next up is probably Marvel Legends, although there is some question as to if Hasbro will lose it after 2020 (Star Wars is up at the same time). They'll probably end up keeping it though. It'll probably be Galactus, a legit 6 inch scale MCU Helicarrier that would be somewhat larger than the Sail Barge (but probably less messive), or a 6 inch scale Sentinel that they recently expressed interest in doing (the one on Amazon is 3.5 inch scaled repainted... it still kind of works)
After that they'll probably to Star Wars again. The sail barge represents the near upper end of what you could practically make for Star Wars vehicles and be at scale. It's supposed to be 30 meters in length. The Millennium Falcon is supposedly 35 meters in length. However the $250 Legacy Collection "New Millennium Falcon" is shorter than the sail barge (31" vs 49"). Doing a scale Haslab Millennium Falcon would be more expensive than the Sail barge and larger, and would be one of the few products they could justify a likely $600-$700 cost. They never reissued the Legacy Collection mold, as far as I know, and have stuck with releasing cheaper "very much a child's toy" movie gimmick Falcons. The LC Falcon was also something of a shelf warmer at the time.
I expect to see around this cheaper, legit crowdfunded projects. Cookie Monster analogs. Probably some crazy Nerf gun and something for MLP.
Transformers won't see another toy on Haslab for a while.
i was on the fence but i forgot to preorder him for cheap from one of the other spots online. so i just bit the bullet and ordered him an hour ago.
if only there wasnt basically a 2 year wait.
Thanks for the graph work, graph guy.
I request an, "IT'S OVER 9,000. IMPOSSIBLE" graph. For the final graph after this sucker closes.
For those who keep thinking about it, you have 18 minutest left! If your that unsure but have the funds, just do it, if you get it, don't like it, you can always try re-selling it. Just DO IT! At least you won't regret it if you get it and like it.
I celebrate seeing Transformers The Movie in the theatre as my first distinct life memory. So that basically means watching Unicron at the beginning is essentially my first life memory. That’s what put me over the edge. This will be cherished for the rest of my days.
That might be a little dramatic lol but still...

If I am reading this right as 141.55% progress, then the number is at 11,324 backers! That's insane yet awesome!!!
Hello....USS Flagg....Snake Eyes movie coming????
Unicron from beyond: Extend me again... or get off the keyboard!
That actually answered my question before I even got to ask it, thank you.
Thanks. I missed this last night! I can’t wait to see your final graph that shows this one surpassing the barge!
