Thread: Transformers: War For Cybertron Unicron

    I got an email that they’re extending this crowd source till October 6th(I believe). Hopefully it meets the goal. I’m not a Transformer collector but this looked great.

    The Cookee Monster Crowdfunder failed, Hasbro doesn't want this to fail or else it'll look bad for their whole crowdfunded idea and ruin the chances of more amazing items down the line, hence the extension.

    Must admit it looks really good but super expensive.

    Excellent news. I think there's a good chance it will succeed now.

    30 days was really kind of ridiculous given they need 8,000 backers rather than 5,000. Let's see, we need a lot more backers and we're charging more money than The Barge, so let's keep it at 30 days same as The Barge. That should be fine.

    Not that I'm backing it or anything, but I think it would be great for Transformers collectors to get something like this. It bodes well for future projects.
    Just like the time I could have met Mr. T at the mall. The entire day, I kept saying, "l'll go a little later, I'll go a littler later..." And when I got there, they told me he just left. And when I asked the mall guy if he'll ever come back again, he said he didn't know. Well, I'm never going to let something like that happen again!

    I backed Unicron shortly after it was announced. It would be nice if Hasbro would give us some sort of heads-up about these so people would have more time to save up for these things. Or offer a payment plan. Or do more promoting on their social media channels. The videos they have on their official YouTube page about Unicron doesn't even have a link to the campaign itself.

    Hopefully the extra time will get this thing made!

    I wasn’t surprised the Cookie Monster failed. I thought it was a joke when it was announced. I thought to myself what parent is actually going to drop 300 bucks for this for their kid?

    I believe the Cookie Monster campaign was aimed at adults who collect Sesame Street items. I guess their market research was off or people who claimed they were gonna buy it didn't show up.

    The extension doesn’t seem to be helping Unicron. The orders have been going backwards the past few days. Makes me grateful the Barge campaign was so successful. Would love to see this Unicron get made!
    Wanted: Jawa sample proofs,a textured cape Leia, and any Boushh proofs. I'm also currently looking for a 21 ESB back Leia Organa proof. I have cash and many great trade items!

    I think the Barge had a lot more updates from Hasbro. They kept showing new things like the packaging (which I guess is gonna be pretty basic for Unicron) and the book, and the barge with figures...

    Hasbro doesn't even have a hyperlink to the campaign on their official YouTube videos of Unicron.

    I spotted this guy at Walmart this morning.

    Hasbro published a video showing how the Unicron "poster" was made.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZzANvRKw7Sg

    There is no link to the Unicron campaign in this YouTube video...

    It does not say whether or not we get a copy of this poster with the purchase of Unicron...

    The official Hasbro Transformers website has nothing about Unicron on the front page...

    Who is managing this campaign?
