    God I am happy for everyone getting him, but I will be grateful when I am not seeing him plastered over every Transformers front page daily.

    If true, then the assumption that the campaign failed without an extension would be wrong since it sounds like they had probably enough etailer orders to get it to the goal, if not super close, and this is without the last surge of buyers waiting until last minute. If the 11,000 plus order is true, then they most likely had the goal within reach by the time they announced the extension. I don't see thousands of orders just materializing in 30 days just because the extended the campaign. Most of these backers probably waited to pull the trigger at the end and just waited some more after the announcement of the extension.

    Yeah this thing would of funded absolutely if it had ended a month ago. it probably only would get about 9000 like the sail barge but considering there were like 1000 orders the final 2 days plus 3200 e-tailer orders .... never underestimate how many procrastinators there are in the world lol.

    but I hope this doesnt mean haslab will try to put a 10K goal on the next transformers haslab project lol

    Is there a continuity where he doesn't have an origin of some sort given? Even if it's one of those vague, obscured by the mists of time, possibly mythologized kind of things? I'm not that familiar with some of the story lines, so I don't know. But you're correct, the narrative wouldn't necessarily require an origin story for him, depending on how it's written.

    Exactly.

    I could live with that.

    Also, thanks to this I now have the following song stuck in my head. :)

    Okay then. What instead of Primus as a Planet, a Unicron sized Rung?

    As far as I know, any continuity that has featured Unicron eventually got around to giving him an origin of some sort.

    However, the point WAS that it's not necessary. The original TFTM was perfectly fine without it, and if the Primacron origin episode was never made, no one would have missed it.

    Had the opportunity to see this in person at NYCC yesterday, pictures really don’t do it justice this looks really impressive in person...so I bit the bullet and backed it

    - looks fully painted, rep confirmed the way it looks is exactly how we are getting it

    - said there was no diecast in its structure, so this is 19lbs of pure plastic. Those planet panels look very thick and heavy. Other then the hands there shouldn’t be any hollowness to this.

    Congrats to all that made this happen...now to spend the next year and a half trying to figure out where the hell to display it!

    So unlike when I backed the Barge and for some reason never received the email updates (even after Hasbro confirmed my email 2 times) I have gotten the Unicron email! It stands to reason that since I received the Barge but no updates, I may now receive the Unicron updates and never get the Unicron figure! :)

    If the site and/or e-mail isn't working, I suggest phoning them.

    (Personally, I myself consider telephone the last resort, but I'd rather do that than risk missing out on something like this if I'd gotten my order in)

    All i can say about this unocron now being made is this.....i WILL be buying an unopened unicron from a buyer at 2x the price of original purchase. I only say that cuz i couldnt afford the 575 during the funding process and now i can. So whoever here bought more than one and has plans to resell one at a crazy price, i have 1200 bucks for you for one!

    Try and grab one from one of the main shops that ship to you ... some of them bought extra and have a few left up for preorder but will probably go fast if they haven’t already

    The address with your credit card company/bank probably doesn't match with what you put in with the etailer. Once you get that updated, they should be good to go.

    I suggest you buy from these guys while they are taking orders for their remaining ones, it'll be cheaper and you don't pay all at once. Transformers: War For Cybertron Unicron
