Toy News: Unicron HasLab Project Funded, Will Go Into Production

Started late this summer, the Unicron HasLab Crowdfunding Project seemed like an impossible dream that Transformers fans have wanted for decades. Even as Hasbro added extra items as incentives, the numbers only crept up slowly, causing many fans to doubt this project would be funded.

Events: "The Expanse" Experience at New York Comic-Con 2019

The Expanse is a science fiction show set in the future where humanity has colonized the Solar System. It is based on a series of novels under the same title. Unlike more optimistic shows like Star Trek, The Expanse acknowledges humanity's strengths and weaknesses as the crew of a ship named The Rocinante navigates not only space but the intense politics between different worlds and government factions. The show has been called Game of Thrones in Space and from a complexity standpoint the description is apt.

One of the issues fans have had with Cyberverse is its reliance on gimmicks and design sacrifices made to simplify the toys. Even the "Warrior Class" only partly recalls the days when "Warrior Class" meant "Deluxe Class but in a kid focused line". Hasbro has heard the call and in 2020 they will be introducing a new Class of figures to Cyberverse, the Deluxe Class!
