UNICRON LIVES - Haslab Unicron Campaign Surpasses 8,000 Backers

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. With about a day remaining as of the time of writing, we do expect some fluctuation in the numbers, including possible dips back in the 7,990s. But it showed tremendous momentum, gaining hundreds of new backers over the course of Saturday, and we expect that to continue until the official end of the campaign and more than offset any last minute cancellations that might take place.

As a reminder, with the successful end of the campaign, over a year's worth of additional work will begin. Unicron is currently projected to be delivered sometime in early 2021. It was suggested during NYCC that more extra goodies and accessories for Unicron could be developed and announced even after the end of the campaign, so we expect to still hear quite a bit about this in the coming months.

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.

I don't know I'm just happy that they changed the deadline for the people that want and can afford this

Oh I'm glad they did it, I just wonder if the redundancy was already built in. I hope it gets though but with how many parts of the fandom are acting, it will amaze me if Hasbro don't just put doing something like this for Transformers fans in the "too hard/too much grief/not worth it" basket with the way so many people have acted. It's like this entire venture has exposed the inner Veruca Salt of far too many people in the community, who don't want to understand the intricacies of the toy industry at play here - or that when you break down the materials costs, this is proportionately equal value to a Titan Class figure.

Better late than never? This afternoon, the calls for action from interested collectors in Europe and the UK have finally been answered, as an official channel has opened for them to be able to support the HasLab Unicron campaign. Kapow Toys has announced via Facebook that they have become an authorized outlet for the project, apparently to be the only one for that part of the world.

What's the bet that much like a false floor in a house, the August 31 deadline was a false deadline that they put out there in the hopes it would get done, but secretly had October 6 as a fallback this whole time, just in case?

Fans, you have been heard. Hasbro saw all the people saying they wanted to back this project, but didn't have to the funds yet and have officially extended the funding deadline more than a month to Sunday October 6, 2019! With over 5,000 backers already, this practically guarantees Unicron will be made! BACKER DEADLINE IS OFFICIALLY EXTENDED! TRANSFORMERS fans.
