Hasbro has recently updated Hasbropulse with a new Haslab project. This time they will be offering the evil Unicron. For those who are not aware Unicron was a evil planet destroyer who made his debut appearance in The Transformers The Movie aka the original Generation One film. He also made an appearance in the long running Transformers marvel comics. A different interpretation of the character also appeared in Transformers: Armada/ Transformers: Micron Legend and also had a toy exclusive design in the Transformers: Cybertron toyline.
The campaign will need at least 8,000 backers by 11:59 PM EST on August 31, 2019. Unicron will cost $574.99 and will most likely be released exclusively in the campaign meaning fans do not want to miss out on this release. If the campaign is successful backers will be charged on August 31 and the figure will ship in Early 2021.
Hasbro provided an official description for 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.
