Toy News: Hasbro Reveals Removable Head for HasLab Unicron

When Hasbro announced the HasLab Crowd Funding campaign for Unicron, one of the features many fans asked about was whether or not the planet-eater's head would be removable. Fans may recall that in Transformers: The Movie, Unicron's head flew off of his body before it exploded. It would be revealed in season 3 of the animated series that Unicron was not actually dead but rather was dormant as his head orbited Cybertron.

Toy News: Takara Tomy and Hasbro Release Unicron Transformation Video - UPDATED

IGN has released an exclusive video featuring Unicron's transformation! You may recall that Hasbro showed off the prototype in both modes at San Diego Comic-Con 2019, however due to the complexity of the figure (and some technical issues) the figure was transformed "behind the scenes" while we waited. This time we get to see the figure actually being transformed.

San Diego Comic-Con 2019 has kicked off with Wednesday's Preview Night where a limited audience could hit the show floor, take in the sights and of course, spend insane amount of money! Among the most impressive displays was the prototype of Unicron! Launched three days ago, Hasbro made a strong showing of presenting Unicron in both modes. The figure was gigantic and the display cases allowed fans to see the figure at multiple angles. Check out my video below featuring the Monster Planet himself.

Back in the late 90's, Takara created a prototype for a Unicron toy that would never see release, much like it's 1980's predecessor. While you can't buy it, you can read my article which gives information about the figure and includes updated, higher resolution scans of photos of the prototype!

When Unicron needed the Angolmois energy found, he created Elephorca as one of his agents to do his bidding. This terrifying Blendtron can change his size at will and is a titanic force of destruction much like his master. Check out my retro review of "Beast Wars Neo" Elephorca!
