    I was so excited when I saw his appearence in the show...but it got me thinking...is it too soon...I mean from now till the end he may play a crucial role in the TFP universe but many people don't want it to be like the unicron triologies?....what's your opinion on this?

    It'll depend on how they do him, really. I believe the writers can find a way to use Unicron without making him too much of a "Show finale" thing.

    Maybe they'll just deflect/delay/put him in stasis at the end of season 2 so that he can return in season 5 or so.

    They had a promo about Unicron?! Really? Damnit!

    There are times like this when I really wish I didn't live in Aussie. :(

    Well, could be like in that Armada episode where the kids saw Unicron's silout..si..agh!...saw a glimpse of Unicron but the character itself didnt show up til the final episodes of the series. Maybe TFP Unicron gets the same treatment: small preview of him and not showing him til 30 more episode or so?

    It would be kind of strange to have a season two teaser for what would basically be a cameo.

    maybe he doesnt awaken till the end of season 2 but he is a ever persistent threat through out that season, and in season 3 he is the main villain

    One thing I noticed about the trailer that wasn't obviously the Unicron-type character was that the actual Show title "Transformers Prime" was redone to look a little darker, not with the bright white lettering like usual, this time it's more like a reflective metallic black.

    New opening credits for season 2 perhaps? I'd guess they would redo it and add in all the new characters and whatnot.

    I doubt Unicron will show up until late in Season 2, considering it's supposed to be a rather long season, IIRC.

    Considering this is a trailer for Season 2, and considering how teasers for future seasons in shows usually go, I'd say he won't show up until the end of S2, which is plenty long enough. He'll probably first get mentioned in the S1 finale/S2 premiere, if I had to guess. Either way, it finally gets the plot moving.

    Also, I find it funny that people are complaining that they're "tired of Unicron". It's been, what, six years since he's been prominently featured in this franchise? I think it's about time he made a comeback.

    Ah, well, 26 episodes is still plenty. We'll get what? 20-21 of that as setup? I seem to recall Orci stating that Season 2 will be heavily arc-based.

    Oh, I have no doubt they will.

    They already have been building up to it, after all. In the five-parter, at least.
