A pleasant surprise to behold on Hasbro’s Unicron page this morning as the backer count has jumped to (as of this post) 6,797 out of 8,000 over night!
This of course leaves us in need of only about 1200 more backers between now and October 6th. Additionally, Hasbro posted to their Instagram and Haslab Unicron page new features and accessories for the Chaos Bringer:
- Unicron’s hand articulation count going up from 6 points to 15! A difference of small joints, but an update that will nonetheless add that much more personality to the Chaos Bringer if he makes it.
- Hot Rod, Galvatron and Autobot Shuttle new to-scale figurines. Now you can recreate the epic 1986 movie scene where Hot Rod defeats the menacing Planet Eater!
- Premium posable headstand. Now you can display Unicron’s dismembered head in all its glory. The headstand also features posts to pose the included mini figures.
Don’t forget that we had already reported the Galvatron Mini-Figure And Interchangeable Beard Accessories. If you’re on the fence due to whether or not Unicron will even be fully backed, now may be the time to lend
Goku Hasbro your energy for the final push as the campaign nears its end.
Thanks man. I appreciate it!
That's looking awesome!
Sorry it took so long but here’s links to the lights/usb I have
USB with stars
I am still reworking the arcade room display. Ended up putting Unicron on top of a glass case display (haven’t put the shelves inside or set up figures in it yet)

Haha thank you for the name compliment. It's a nickname that stuck with me like 20 years ago and I haven't let it go since.
I will give it another whirl this weekend! I'll freeze frame PvP on my iPad as I go along. Thanks for the assist!
First things first…you have the greatest screen name I've seen in a while.
If you've already tried this, sorry. But it really will fix it. Unpeg the side clips (shown in your photo 4) and check the way you have the backpack collapsed. You probably do not have it positioned right. The top area needs to have a cant. You'll know it's correct because IT WILL slide down and clip on easily. Also slide the pack down BEFORE you secure the clips. It's hard to explain. But I spent a stupid amount of time on two occasions with the same issue. Ask anything else you need to and I'll do my best to help. Feel free to PM.
PvP's video shows a side view of this step. It may help you see the correct positioning. Skip ahead to the 19 minute mark.
I been waiting someone uses it as a disco ball and this is close enough.
Quick question: I finally mustered up the courage to transform to Robot mode and I have a question about how the sliding panel should tab in after I lock the backpack into place. I can’t for the life of me get it to slide all the way down into the designed slots with the 2 side locked in place. It’s like 95% there but just not going all the way down.
And now that's all I can see.
I though that was a G1 Lazerbeak painting in the background when I first saw it.
Awesome. I appreciate it.
Thanks so much!
I’ll look into where My Uncle got the usb star projector from (was a gift from him) and where I got the black lights from (I know Amazon but they were specific ones that can change lighting from dim-bright) soon as I know I’ll get you links
UHHHHHHHHHHM…Where can I can the black light star projector??? I need that NOW. (looks cool btw. Also really dig the painting.)
So I transformed him back to Planet mode after 40 min xD Problem is the rings are slightly too tall to display on top of the arcade machines, so I’m just getting a sturdy shelf installed and will display it that way. Until then just have him sitting on the Donkey Kong cocktail arcade.
I also might be able to take the bottom wood off the arcade machines (they are just standard 2×4) and add less thick wood so they are slightly shorter, just enough so Unicron can fit on top. Problem is I’m lazy xD whichever happens at least I’ll be able to display him proper. Planet mode is equally impressive, it’s so cool there are blast effects ports all over him.
Went ahead and turned on the black lights/usb that projects stars to get an idea how it might look once set up on a shelf. Might even add more planets/details on the walls to make it pop. So far I like it!

have we completely ruled out a second unicron yet? that way you get the best of both fantastic modes. but also at the same time you let everyone know just how crazy you really are.
That's a sweet room! I think you can't go wrong with him in either mode, his presence is like none other in both forms.
He'd look great in planet mode, maw slightly open above one of your DK games. Throw some red LEDS to light him from below
Trying to decide if I should keep him in robot mode, or transform him to planet mode for the arcade room (especially when the black lights are on with usb drive projecting stars on the Ceiling and wall is turned on) Also rearranging what figures to display near him.

Yeah man it freaks me out a bit every time I transform him. Same with the shoulders. Feels like I'll sheer the plastic off one day.
Unless the movie is inanely popular and a massive success to the level of something like endgame, very unlikely. Selling the nostalgic one was hard enough for them.
tbh it's made me just want the energon repaint of armada unicron
best case scenario it's a Titan SS release.
