HASBRO AND IDW PUBLISHING PARTNER ON HASLAB UNICRON PROJECT WITH NEWLY ANNOUNCED COMICS BUNDLE FOR CAMPAIGN BACKERS

Today, Hasbro and IDW Publishing announced yet another surprise for backers of the HASLAB TRANSFORMERS: WAR FOR CYBERTRON UNICRON project. Fans who support the UNICRON crowd-funded campaign through hasbropulse.com by 11:59PM EST on October 6, 2019, will also receive a ‘FREE’ digital comic bundle.

The comic will feature an all-new UNICRON cover by fan-favorite Andrew Griffith. The digital collection will include the currently unavailable Transformers: The Animated Movie four-issue limited series by Bob Budiansky, Don Figueroa and Josh Burcham – which adapts and expands the classic film that introduced UNICRON – plus the first issue of the 2019 TRANSFORMERS ongoing series by Brian Ruckley, Angel Hernandez, Cachét Whitman and Joana Lafuente.

“IDW is proud to be long-term partners with Hasbro and the Transformers brand and Unicron has been a major character in our storytelling… I mean, he basically annihilated our previous continuity!” said John Barber, Editor-In-Chief of IDW Publishing. “Personally, I'm really excited to see the Hasbro HASLAB Unicron project—that might be the most impressive Transformers toy I've ever seen. It's terrifyingly big! And in honor of the big hungry guy—we're working with Hasbro to provide every fan that officially backs the toy through HASBROPULSE.com with a free Transformers comic bundle featuring the adaptation of the classic 1986 Transformers: The Movie plus the first issue of our ongoing Transformers comic book series!”

If the campaign goal of 8,000 backers is reached by October 6, 2019 at 11:59PM EST, backers will receive a unique code to then access the digital comic bundle exclusively through Comixology – a free mobile app available on iOS and Android.

Fans can support the TRANSFORMERS: WAR FOR CYBERTRON project by visiting hasbropulse.com.



Hasbro also revealed various enhancements backers can look forward to, including 15 points of articulation for Unicron’s hands (3 per finger), a premium posable headstand to recreate the Bringer of Chaos’ head floating in space, and the newly included Hot-Rod slug figurine to recreate how Hot Rod defeats the menacing Planet Eater!

They have also added additional UNICRON supporters from around the globe that have backed the project through Hasbro affiliated retailers to our total tally, bringing us even closer to the 8,000 backer goal. Only a few more days left to make this dream a reality!

Transformers War for Cybertron Unicron Reveals New Features and Accessories!

Beware the inescapable clutches of the mighty Unicron! The already formidable hands of the Chaos Bringer will now have 15 points of articulation, 3 per finger, so Unicron can better grasp the inferior bots he wishes to devour. The included Galvatron and newly added Hot Rod slug figures make the perfect snacks!

With the new to-scale Hot Rod slug figure, fans can reimagine the epic 1986 movie scene where Hot Rod defeats the menacing Planet Eater! Unicron will also now come with an Autobot shuttle ship inspired by the movie!

And when fans play out the part where the Bringer of Chaos's head flies off into space, now it can appear to float! Unicron will come with a clear premium posable headstand to display his dismembered head in all its glory. The headstand also features posts to pose the included mini figures.

The Transformers War for Cybertron Unicron figure is part of Hasbro's crowdfunding platform, HasLab. Remember, if the project doesn’t reach 8,000 backers by October 6th, the product will not move into production. Also, orders for Unicron will no longer be accepted after October 6th. If you want to add this once-in-a-lifetime figure to your Transformers collection, you must back this project before the deadline. You can back this project at HasbroPulse.com.

I see that the ramps on Ironworks and Optimus's trailer use the same connectors as Omega Supreme! You know what that means... ?
