    We did it? I didn't do anything!

    Im sorry but this is Hasbro we are talking about here, his cheap hollow plastic syndrome is one of the worst quality
    issues in Transformers history. Until not see reviews of Unicron, can not pay a dollar.

    With Hasbro CHPS history, this could transform into a catastrophic event. We have A LOT OF reasons to doubt about the quality of the final product. Until not see the final product, not going to support anything.

    Obviously there were not a lot of Muppinite fans out to save Cookie Monster. I am happy for those of you who backed Unicron though.

    I was going to make fun of this post but I realized you’re probably not a native English speaker.

    Look, Hasbro is going to prioritize QC on this one. This is a product purchased solely by Hasbro’s biggest and most vocal consumers. They know very well that pitchforks will be out if it’s not perfect.

    I hope it gets over 9,000. Because Dragon Ball Z pun reasons.

    Now that this has the green light, I’m considering getting an old Planet Wars planet to give him something to munch on...

    Someone needs to brush up on what constitutes a "pun".

    What do you guys think this success says about the future of TF? Is this the dawn of a new era, the last hurrah?

    Im ready to go with my display space now. I have a configurable space in the deep bookshelf in my home office that should hold him in either mode. I’ll seal off with UV resistant plexiglass/Lexan and I’ll use warm (color temp) white LEDs will light him from below and do my best to pass it off as a piece of art. :)

    If it had failed it would have been a major deal. The Zeta Core thing probably would have triggered the Third Party Apocalypse. We would have likely seen the end of Hasbro catering to older nostalgia fans. You’d have seen the full tilt towards 8-12 year olds and leveraging IP into digital markets, etc.

    Unicron succeeding shows there’s still money to be made from us older fans. And that the third party scene isn’t worth the time and money it would take to shut down. So we all get to go on from this with business as usual I’d imagine.

    We did it. I was really worried, Unicron toys have frequently not made it to production, G1 Unicron, Beast Wars Unicron - Check out my Transformers Explained video on Unicrons Toyline

    They were fantastic. And worldburglar too.

    I wanted to take a pic with Unicron with my phone showing that unicron was funded but realized it would be too complicated with lighting etc and gave up

    It's been said from the start, one the time is up, that is the number being made. If you don't drop the cash now, expect to pay more later...

    ... Unless these wind up shelfwarming on retail stores.
