Watching that video made me want to cry. Two reasons. Number 1 I don't have the money to put on this thing & 2 they are so far from the goal it's nuts.

I think they are avoiding some questions.

What more needs to be asked? The main important question is, if they don't meet the goal will they still make it and they said no. 

 

It's well articulated, can stand without the stand, has a lot of details, Siege effects works on it, the paint will be as close as possible to what we see, you should transform it on the stand, it's 19 pounds, no lights and sounds, the head comes off, it has transformation elements from the animation, the eyeballs move, the faceplate can be changed, it has moving mandibles in planet mode drama it's over 2 ft tall and the really wide. What's the other questions?

A new backer every two minutes until the campaign ends. Based on math done by John DeLuna of Radio Free Cybertron, that's what it will take to get Unicron made. An infusion of backers from affiliated retail partners around the world was added to the HasLab counter Monday evening, boosting Unicron from just under 3,300 backers to nearly 5,000.

Hasbro is introducing more movie accuracy to the Bringer of Chaos. Just revealed, the legendary Unicron will come with interchangeable chins, allowing fans to switch back and forth between a smooth chin and a goatee-style chin, just like in the 1986 Transformers The Movie. Now, the infamous Planet Eater is ready for any scene!The colossal Unicron will also come with a Galvatron slug figure so fans can pose out epic movie scenes with the two villains.

That Galvatron figure is massively out of scale when you compare it to the animation in the 1986 movie. They would have been far better off making it the size of the RX-7 that comes with Soul of Chogokin Gunbuster, which from memory is roughly only 0.5cm tall (1/5").

    • I'd like to put something into perspective about this set which is further strengthened by the recent leaks. First: This is TARGET's fault this happened, not Hasbro's. Why? Because they're the ones who cancelled the single release to begin with. Just like Walmart cancelled  "pink" Hot Rod in the Velocitron line.  Second: If Hasbro didn't do some sort of multipack for this, Hound wouldn't have been able to come out at all until possibly late 2025. How do I know this? The recent leaks that show that Crasher, Cosmos, Galaxy Shuttle and possibly Shadowstrip and the aforementioned Hot Rod (and hopefully Sideswipe, Mirage, Jazz and Dead End from Toxitron as well) as all being reissued sometime in 2025. It would've taken another year and a half to two years for Hasbro to try and course correct since that's about how far they plan in advance. If Hasbro not done this five pack then the earliest we would've been able to get Hound was 2025. I don't think the crybabies would've been able to wait that long. There's already people crying about having to wait that long for SS Hatchet as it is. That's the quickest they could've course corrected for the main lines. That is however what Generations Selects is for but I would imagine it couldn't have happened any earlier than this due to the licensing issues or whatever's going on that prevents Hasbro from using and/or reissuing new toolings and decos from store exclusives sooner. So there's a lot of behind the scenes stuff going on with this set. Or rather, Hound in particular. However and as others have pointed out over the internet, this didn't need to be a five pack. In all honesty, five packs are a bit much. Even four packs like the Buzzworthy ones were a bit much. Three packs should be where most multipacks should top out at provided there's no actually reason for four or five to be in a set like if they're a team or combiner or something. This should've been two-three packs by adding in Sideswipe as he also has translucent plastic. Then go from there with more. Bumblebee, Prowl, Bluestreak, Red Alert, Smokescreen, Hoist and so on can join these five, Sideswipe and Buzzworthy Cliffjumper in the blue painted window crew.  I'm not saying we should suck the dick of the great and powerful Hasbro for this or anything as it could've and should've been done better, I'm just saying that it's a lose/lose situation for them and that the vast majority of the hate should be directed at Target...and ultimately the fans for not having bought the previous Buzzworthy sets. However whoever designed some of them should get a lot of the blame too as some of them where badly timed, even if I do own all of them and wanted to own them. Terrorsaur did need to be reissued, Dinobot not so much even in toy colors for both. Tow-Line was a horrible mold reuse and the poor sales showed it. Origins Jazz was great. Bumblebee, maybe not quite as much. The four packs were great as well. But then that was counterbalanced by the horrible Cyberverse 1:1 reissues that had their Cyberverse counterparts also clogging shelves at the same time but hey, at least there's different packaging. It's just that there were big hits and big misses and barely anything in the middle. Had Hound and Hatchet gone through as planned, I would expect them to have sold poorly honestly. The only reason why people seem to be clamoring for them now is that they're two years late at this point and one is still another two years away. Were there people excited for them? Sure. However there seemed to be more who couldn't care less. And I'm sure that would've been reflected in the sales. So Target was right for cancelling them even if their shitty stocking and listing practices caused most of the wild sales discrepancies of the Buzzworthy Bumblebee line as a whole. But yeah, I see a lot of GoBots here lol.  
    • Back in the day, Takara's World's Smallest Transformers surprised everyone with their 2-inch Gashapon (capsule toys) sized figures that could actually transform from robot to vehicle. They even managed to make a transforming trailer and repair bay / command center, with tiny Roller for the Autobot Leader, when he needed to recharge. - Read the Full News Story
    • It is that time of year again for Walmart Collector Con 2024 Spring! This year's exclusives event will being going on March 14 & 15, 2023 with various reveals coming on both days. There will be a Sneak Peek starting on March 7th, that may give us some clues. If the leaked listings are any predictor, we could be seeing the Star Seekers capsule series with a cast of pirate characters including Cannonball, Ferel, Filch, Lockdown, Roadpig, and Thundertron figures, see possible listings below. - Read the Full News Story
    • The Missing Link line attempts to answer the question, "What would Generation One toys look and feel like with modern articulation?" With Convoy/Optimus Prime, the answer is fantastic. C-01 and C-02 feel like the original toy, with diecast metal, and rubber tires, it's nearly impossible to see any differences from the original toy. It's the transformation and robot mode that reveals all the new work, articulated hands and wrists, hips and feet. while I find the waist articulation limited and the ab crunch rather useless, it's impressive that they were included. The 40th anniversary of the Transformers brand is off to an excellent start.
