    Perhaps you should read the clause on the HasLab Unicron page.

    It specifically states. You will not be charged until AFTER the end of the Funding. followed by the date and time.

    Only the amount that are ordered are made. So either pay by tomorrow, or pay twice the price down the road in 2021


    On another note, car broke, so I had to switch to toy dojo for my unicron, best option atm. Hopefully it goes smoothly there. Was going to do bbts but they sold out. Toy dojo’s good... right?

    Congrats to Hastak for the achievement! After seeing this in person at NYCC, it is massive and will be a centerpiece of any TF collector's collection.
    I will probably back it now that it has met its minimum...but the $600 cost all at once will hurt my wallet...would have preferred monthly installment or an initial percentage of the total as a required payment.

    I hope an extra will be a mini Grimlock in his famous movie "Me Grimlock Kick Butt" pose!:)

    So, how badly do we want an accompanying Selects Sideways to go along with this? I know I want one.

    My other cousin is number 8267, he's probably going to sell it later on. He does things like that.

    Packaged in Robot mode, or Planet mode?

    If I had to guess:

    DNA Design will do new rings/wings. The official ones are fine but they're definitely... how do I put it... very "Hasbro". A compromise between asthetics, cost, saftey and complexity. Rings that transform in a more complicated fashion (these are fairly similar to the Armada Unicron approach actually) with m ore painted detail would be well within their typical wheelhouse. It'd be more complicated and expensive than the Fortress Maximus sets, but probably under $100. It probably will not light up.

    ShockwaveLabs will do an red LED thingy that will go right into the mouth of the planet mode. It'll cover up the the unpainted trash compactor detail, but it'll give him his red mouth glow.

    One of the 3d printing companies will do the missing Quintesson, Junkion and Decepiticon ships. We'll probably also get Tennis ball sided Lith-Ones and Moonbase 1 and 2. It would be cool if a hemisphere could rotate to unveil tooth-grooves so the planets/moons could lock it into Unicron's jaws, simulating him chewing them.

    ToyHax will do stickers of course. Probably very expensive ($50 each) and in at least two parts: one for Planet mode and one for robot mode.

    The mount everest of addons, which probably won't be done, is replacing the existing arms that connect the various planet pieces with one that folds differently to try and create a more compact shape.


    And a metal or clear replacement stand. The black one works fine, but it takes up a lot of visual space.

    The actual money won’t be pulled from your account until the campaign is officially over, tomorrow night. As long as you get an email confirmation or you can see it in your HasbroPulse order history, you’re good.

    Sideways has zero to do with G1 1986 movie/Siege Unicron.

    He's strictly an Armada character. never even made it past Armada. lol

    Robot mode would seem the safest bet, unless there's filler to hold the planet mode in place.

    I bet basically sort of like Omega Supreme. Laying down in robot mode, rings not connected. Stand in two pieces (base and arm). Some assembly required. Basically a Titan class box, just twice the size.

    And unlike Titan-class, secured and protected by Styrofoam.

    Except when he was in Cybertron and RotF. And hijacked 'Ask Vector Prime'. And when his first toy came out before Armada.

    That sounds amazing! I totally visualize your description.

    These etchings, and small clear added on pipes & greeble, could also catch light from light piping from the bottom on a type of hollowed but still thin baseplate.

    As for me personally, I really like a base that is as ‘invisible’ as possible, to let the model ‘float’. The less parts catches less light (w/clear materials), so one part with soft 1 or 2 curved bends is why I imagine; ultra minimalistic.

    However your idea would totally be a really fun project to produce! I’m a visual artist but always had a penchant for creating 3D modeling of some sort, and would also enjoy making something I enjoy which I could offer on the market, one day. My ultimate project is a 3D scaled modular diorama (urban/city) based on G1 cartoons, for sporadically displaying my Masterpiece figures. With lighting for night scenes...I’ll be enjoying taking pictures of that! It’s a longtime boyhood dream of mine. I drew pretty solid blueprints a few years back, I gotta start it eventually!
