I’ll admit I was wrong. When we initially covered this story, I thought backing for this newest HasLab Transformers project had stalled, but with 13 days left, the Deathsaurus crowdfunding campaign has succeeded with nearly 12,500 backers. The initial goal needed 11k. However, for Deathsaurus to get his full array of accessories, the project must pass two thresholds: 14k for Tier 1 and 17k for Tier 2.
Tier 1 unlocks the Living-Metal-Destroying Cannon along with a spiked flail and blast effects.
The Living-Metal-Destroying Cannon is perhaps one of the most destructive weapons in the Transformers universe. A fully-charged blast from its barrel can erode any metal material, including the living cells of Cybertronian lifeforms. This Deathsaurus figure comes with this signature weapon accessory and his classic spiked flail accessory! Fans can also plug the 6 included blast effects onto the Deathsaurus figure and his weapon accessories.
Tier 2 will deliver some parts crucial for displaying the character. These include the throne, base, and stand pieces made for both the robot and disguise mode.
The Transformers team has sculpted an imposing throne for Deathsaurus that reflects his awesome power. This 11-inch accessory features premium deco and details inspired by the throne as seen in the anime. Additionally, we know you want to show off Deathsaurus in the most epic poses imagineable. We’re including 2 stand pieces to allow Transformers fans to showcase Deathsaurus in his most powerful stances.
Thankfully, before the first target was met, Hasbro added full-color renders of Deathsaurus to the crowdfunding page. Based on the images below, we may see some “chrome” pieces that were on the original figure, and much of the color scheme looks like what was expected: blue, gold, maroon, white, red, and gray.
Even though the production funding goal has been met [to the tune of $2,248,075 as of the publication of this article], backers won’t see this figure in their homes until the Fall of next year.
