TakaraTomy Mall Begins Provisional War For Cybertron Unicron Campaign

Shortly before Summer Wonderfest happens, TakaraTomy Mall has added their page for HasLab's Unicron. A lot of the details aren't completely clear, thanks to the uncertain nature of machine translation. What we can tell for sure is that the TTM orders will be cancelled if the required number of preorders aren't met "worldwide". Nothing that we can read on the listing page states clearly that orders via TakaraTomy Mall are being added to the tally of 8,000 - but nothing says that it isn't, either.

Further to this, the process for signing up for a Unicron is outlined, and begins with an "application". Indeed, the closest thing to an order link points to a questionnaire page, unfortunately requiring a TakaraTomy Mall user account to access. After submitting this application, users will be e-mailed with a link to the actual order form for Unicron.

This does lead to some speculation, such as that TakaraTomy Mall's orders may not be handled through their own system. Is this sending customers on to Hasbro Pulse? Or to an official or approved proxy? We simply do not know right now. But to the best we remember, this procedure differs from even Grand Maximus, the last particularly notable provisional preorder offer from TakaraTomy Mall.

But otherwise it runs about like you'd expect: If the minimum order number isn't met, all sales will be cancelled, but if it goes through, there's no option to back out of the order once it's paid. They also cite payment as expected to process in mid-September, and that a credit card is required. This time frame makes it sound more or less consistent with what we're expecting from when Hasbro Pulse's HasLab charges are likely to hit, which only reinforces the thought of a very direct connection.

TakaraTomy Mall has Unicron listed at ¥70,000, plus 8% sales tax, for a total of ¥75,600. At current exchange rates, ¥70,000 equals about $644 - about $70 over the price on HasLab. The order period ends midday on August 30. We'll keep following this for more developments as hopefully more details become known as some legitimate Japanese-fluent people can better explain the finer points for us.

After a much longer campaign period than anyone expected to go through, and with only barely more than 24 hours remaining, it appears that Unicron has made it. As of 10:20pm Eastern Time, War For Cybertron Unicron has surpassed its minimum backer requirement of 8,000 to begin production.

ExVee - 2019-10-01 @ 2:43 pm

War For Cybertron Unicron has just about five days left to reach its backer requirement in order to proceed to production. This morning the project got a substantial boost, jumping a full thousand backers to nearly 6,800. The sudden boost should be the result of including at least some of the international orders received during the extension period.
