    50,000 Followers & Counting!

    We would like to take a moment to thank each of you for the love and support you have shown us over the years, in making unicron.com the first #Transformers fan site to to be liked and followed by >50K people on Facebook across the world!

    When we Lukis Bros, started our site WAY back in 1997, we remember wondering if there were many (or any!) other people out there who liked Transformers as much as we do? HA ha ha! Of course, we had no idea it would evolve as fast as it did, or that it would become such a life-long passion project that it has! Never would we have guessed that there are this many fans who are equally, often more crazy about these transforming robot toys as we are!

    While there certainly are down sides to social media in general, we’re thankful to Facebook for providing us the opportunity to connect and share what we do with SO many other fans across the world. Hey, if we can spread some joy and love for toys and collecting with others, maybe provide an occasional pleasant distraction from anxiety-producing political talk or news... then we have accomplished our goal!

    We have a blast doing what we do and look forward to continuing over the years to come! Thank you to one and all for supporting us in achieving this cool milestone! Here’s to many more years and successes to come!

    Power Rangers on Display at #HasbroToyFair 2020

    I’ll be honest, I don’t know much about these, as they’re not really my thing. But I know there are a lot of Transformers fans with interest so thought I’d share a few photos of what I had very limited time to snag.

    Don’t worry, more Transformers photos/news comin’ right up! ~

    #StudioSeries on Display at #HasbroToyFair 2020

    Every year I attend, I leave the show floor after a flurry of photo taking, interviews and presentation attending... I catch my breath and think to myself, “Wow, I’m glad I managed to grab a few photos of this/that toy because I barely had time to look at it while I was there!”

    Voyager Class Sentinel Prime takes that prize for me this year, as after I had a chance to organize photos, I think this toy looks really good, even though I barely had time to admire it while there in-person! My impression of it, from what little time I have, is that he looks big, and quite solid for a Voyager scale. Although I wouldn’t have guessed I’d be happy with anything other than Leader scale for this character, I think I may be proven wrong and this figure will become the definitive version over the previously released Leader Class toy in 2011.

    Soundwave didn’t thrill me but for those who like the idea of Soundwave as a communications satellite will enjoy him, Top Spin also looks good, but the final verdict remains to be seen as so much of his look depends on deco and details.

    Bah-weep-Graaaaagnah wheep ni ni bong! #Transformers TFTM “Allicons” See Official Release in WFC #Earthrise 2020

    It’s crazy to me that “Gnaw” and all his Sharkticons have had so much love over the years with toys in multiple series (beyond the G1 original) in various scales... and yet this this is the first time we’ve seen these beasties in toy form EVER! Thank you Hasbro! The Allicons even had a speaking role in Transformers The Movie (1986) and were featured routinely in G1 Season 3. It’s about time we get some sweet toys of these guys!

    They’ll be a fantastic compliment to the Quintesson Judges, and like them, a lot of fans will need to buy quite a few before we’ve satisfactorily filled out their ranks! As Hot Rod put it,
    “This is getting expensive!”
    (And no, they *WON’T* reciprocate!)

    #Transformers #StudioSeries Cliffjumper Revealed at #HasbroToyFair

    Among all the new Studio Series toys unveiled the weekend, this might be the one I’m most excited about. Looks great, and I’m really glad they’re starting the release with CJ and not ‘Bee. Looks really sharp in both modes. I look forward to adding him to my movie display!

    Starting with a new line of highly detailed 6” figures of the GI-superstars. Wondering if this could mean we may finally get the GIJoe-Transformers Collaborative toy line someday? We can hope! For now, it’s nice to see the line showing at least some signs of life!

    “SILENCE! Or you will be held in contempt of this court.” Authentic TFTM Quintesson Judge to See Release in 2020 #Transformers War for Cybertron

    The toy I’ve dreamed of since 1986 is finally going to become a reality! Complete with 5-faces exactly like the film, rotate with speed around the body with the pull of a lever - a feature perfectly *executed (pardon the pun! ~).

    Let’s talk about his ‘alt mode.’ We had a chance to speak with toy designers at length about this and here is what we heard. They considered making a 5-faced judge that could transform into a Quintesson ship or something alike, but doing so, would have resulted in sacrifices in features to his ‘robot’ mode. Considering that there is no prescience for the judge to transform, the decision was made to put all resources into making the judge form as good as it can be. For example, if this toy transformed into a ship or car of some sort, there’s no way to keep the rotating head feature, while still being a reasonably priced Voyager toy in the main line.

    As it is, I consider the “Micromaster Prison Cel” alt mode, to be a cool feature of robot and it still gets to be sold as a “Transformers” toy! Official and authentic, exactly as I would want it to be! I have been told that the toy maker’s reticence to make a Quintesson over the years is that it really doesn’t fit within traditional paradigm of “transforming toys.” This is how we get to have our Quints!

    Frankly, I don’t care what it turns into, if anything at all. More than anything else, I want it as accurate to the ‘86 movie as possible. That said, it does have an alt mode of sorts, where the faces flip up and his ‘internals’ along with his throne/chair interlocks with other bases and reveal a ‘jail cell’ for Micromasters imprisonment! It’s creative, fun and most importantly, doesn’t get in the way of G1-authentic goodness!

    Thank you @Hasbro for making this happen and adding yet another (pardon the phrase!) *quintessential toy, we must have in our collections! Now the question is, how many do you plan to get???

    INNOCENT! Quintesson Judge Faithful to ‘86 #Transformers The Movie, Coming to War For Cybertron, as Earthrise Voyager!

    I have been politely requesting a Quintesson Judge true to TFTM for years! I have been told that the toy maker’s reticence to make one over the years is that it really doesn’t fit within traditional paradigm of “transforming toys.” Frankly, I don’t care what it turns into, if anything at all. More than anything else, I want it as accurate to the ‘86 movie as it can be. That said, it does have an alt mode of sorts, where the faces flip up and his ‘internals’ along with his throne/chair interlocks with other bases and reveal a ‘jail cell’ for Micromasters imprisonment! It’s creative, fun and most importantly, doesn’t get in the way of G1-authentic goodness!

    We’ll put together a complete gallery of all faces, and his crazy alt-mode internals shortly. In the meantime, thought you’d enjoy this video showing how the faces spin around it’s ‘torso’ just exactly the way you’d want them to! Thank you @Hasbro for making this happen and adding yet another (pardon the phrase!) *quintessential toy, we must have in our collections! Now the question is, how many do you plan to get???

    #Transformers Studio Series Scrapper, Overload & our first In-Person Look at Complete/Combined RotF Devastator at #HasbroToyFair

    These are the last two “Constructicons” we need to get, in order to form the monstrous Revenge of the Fallen Devastator - They’re book looking great and will complete the set. Scrapper has that alien walnut shell face esthetic, like Bonecrusher, that I really like. He got a brief cameo appearance in the film. Overload, we saw as a truck but saw his 4-armed scorpion tailed weirdness that was so bizarre even Michael Bay left it on the cutting room floor! That said, we need him just the same.

    Our impression of Devastator is that he is as large and impressive as we’ve been hoping for. Though, I really wanted to pick him up and see if he could be posed in his characteristic “walking on all four” look he has in the film. We shall see.

    War for Cybertron Earthrise Leader Class Doubledealer!

    While being leaked earlier this week, this new triplechanger mercenary, shows it’s glorious self for the first time today at Toyfair 2020. The robot mode, equipped with many guns and large shoulder missile, will really bring something new to the Earthrise as well as WFC table. Bird mode with articulated jaw and legs, and lastly, vehicle mode, with not only large rocket, but also panels that fold out for the new city building system seen in titans as well as city builders like Ironworks or Airwave.

    #Transformers Studio Series Blitzwing from Bumblebee Movie

    Generations/War for Cybertron wasn’t the only show in town among Transformers on display at #HasbroToyFair. We were happy to see the beautiful and show accurate Blitzwing (I know, he’s colored a lot like Starscream ... but he’s *Blitzwing!) Reps there told us this is all new tooling and looks spot on. As much as we loved that Bee film, this will be a must have additional to our collection when he comes out. Although this toy appears to be a hand-painted prototype, it gives a pretty good indication of how the final product will turn out.

    #Transformers #Earthrise Titan Class Scorponok #HasbroToyFair

    Today at ToyFair 2020, we got our first look a the new Titan coming in 2020. Our first impression is thathe’s going to be as much of a crowd pleaser as Trypticon and quite possibly regarded as the best Titan Class figure made to date. He’s very reminiscent of the G1 but much bigger, his claws have a beautiful bulk and thickness, his Scorpion head looks like a head, of sorts (unlike the original), the city has more more functioning ramps and car lifts, and robot mode looks glorious, more poseable and bigger version of the original. It’s 100% new tooling and honestly just about everything I could want in the figure.

    Although this is unconfirmed, we believe the Titan Master scaled figure that comes with him is “Lord Zarak.” He becomes the head for a ~Deluxe sized “Mega Zarak.”

    Hot off the heels of the announcement of BotCon's returning in 2021 under the new management of BC Productions (an all new company run by such BotCon veterans as Karl Hartman, Andrew Hall, Mike Tinnel, and more, created for the specific purpose of acquiring the rights to BotCon from Fun Publications) comes a few updates regarding this year's RoboCon, which has been carrying BotCon's torch in the meantime.

    Namely, RoboCon 2020 will be held on June 5-6 at the Galt House in Louisville, KY, the very same hotel that played host to the last official BotCon in 2016. Registration has also gone live, with two registration packages available this year. The standard registration package for this year is a remarkably affordable $25.00! The second option, meanwhile, is a special "BotCon 2021 Pre-Party Exclusive Pack" that features access to a special Friday night party celebrating the next year's return of BotCon, an exclusive BotCon convention T-shirt featuring a "Neo-Classic" BotCon logo, a special vintage BotCon logo themed lanyard, and best of all, a 144-page Ultimate BotCon Product Guide Volume 1 w/ Exclusive convention cover, limited to 300 pieces. That one is priced at $98.00 (more than previous RoboCons but far less than any Fun Pub BotCons ever were).

    For the past few days, suspicious activity has been going on at the late BotCon.com with the site undergoing some sort of reconstruction. Now, the site has been relaunched with a new makeover and the announcement that BotCon, the once official Transformers convention, is coming back under the new management of BC Productions, for the Summer of 2021!

    This news comes formally from Karl Hartman, one of the original organizers of the con who helped in its creation back in 1994 and continued to help run it from 1996 to 2002. Allspark.com has posted the full announcement from Hartman, which can be read below:
