Fortress Maximus will no longer be the biggest Transformers toy offered to the public. At least, if this new Pulse campaign reaches its goal of 8,000 backers (it’s currently sitting at over 2,700 backers with 13 days to go). Unicron will rule supreme, according to Hasbro, with many amazing features in tow. Here’s the details of the campaign:
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.
*Limit of 5 per transaction.
Being the most expensive Transformer ever release will make this Unicron toy go down in history. At such a high price point, it’s going to be one for the die-hard collectors. Sadly even many of those have been excluded. Many have already been left considering taking out loans, credit cards, trading in bitcoin, selling off their non-Transformers collections… absolutely anything to fund this highly desirable addition to their collections. Whether this is worth it – only time will tell…
