Hasbro has realised that, as with most things in life, size often does matter and has announced that they want to build their largest Transformers toy to date.
Unicron is the latest collectable announced through Hasbro’s crowdfunding platform, HasLab, which has been responsible for some pretty impressive toys, like the 49-inch Jabba the Hutt’s Sail Barge replica and a 38-inch replica of everybody’s favourite cookie munching creature, Cookie Monster.
Standing 27-inches tall when in robot mode, Unicron can transform into a giant planet. Yes, that’s right. Forget trucks and planes, this Transformer literally becomes a whole planet.
As one would expect, the figure also has a whole bunch of articulation points, an astounding 50 points of articulation to be exact.
As you might guess, owning one of the largest Transformers figures ever made doesn’t come cheap. The figure is set to cost $575.
The catch though is that the toy hasn’t been fully funded on the crowdfunding platform, so you might need to convince a few friends to help back this project before you’re able to purchase it. Hasbro is looking for 8000 backers before the August 31st deadline. Should this happen, the figure will go into production and should finally reach the backers in early 2021.
Unicron was first introduced into the Transformers universe in 1986 and is capable of destroying not only unruly Transformers that try to take him on but also whole planets.
