Toy News: HasLab War for Cybertron Unicron Production Update #2
Hasbro Pulse has updated its site with a blog post about the crowd funded Unicron figure! Acknowledging their staff is working from home now, they state:
"Even working from home, our engineers are working hard to keep Unicron development on track. Below you'll see images of what we call a T1 sample, which stands for Test 1. It's the first time we run the molds with plastic so the sample is very rough. It's not the final colors and the parts don't all fit exactly right at this stage. We normally don't see T1 samples in Rhode Island, usually we wait until EP1, which stands for Engineering Pilot 1, to get the first samples. But for the immense Planet Eater we wanted the samples earlier in the process."
The post goes on to show the prototype, a piece of the tooling (something rarely seen in the toy world outside of people involved in production) and even a sneak peek at the box that the Chaos Bringer will ship in! Even better? We get to see how Unicron compares to an average housecat! I have mirrored some of the photos from the post here but you'll want to want to check out the whole article for all the pics!
