Well, I just saw the 2007 movie for the first time a couple days ago. I was expecting an overblown toy commercial, similar to some of the... less inspired Marvel issues that I encountered in my big readthrough on the comics board. I realize the fandom is somewhat divided over this, but I have to say that it blew my socks off. One of the best summer action films I have ever seen. Anyway, I've already got RotF on pre-order from Wal-Mart (damn IMAX scenes) and am looking forward to it, but I started thinking. Unicron is basically the single greatest enemy in the entire TF franchise, and my initial thought was that seeing him in TF3 or 4 (don't kid yourself; it's coming) would be enough awesome to cause spontaneous orgasms in every male within a ten block radius of the theater. Then I really started thinking about the mechanics of it. Scale is a big concern in the live action films, with few notable exceptions (giant novelty glasses, etc.). Unicron, even if he was cut down to Death Star size, would be a huge logistical problem if any semblance of realistic scale was going to be maintained. Like it says on the TFWiki page for Scale, any shot that features a normal TF interacting with a recognizable part of Unicron is utterly ludicrous. And let's face it, you don't create a planet-sized bad guy without giving him a spectacular fight scene. So, it seems to me that Unicron won't ever be featured in a live-action film. The only way he would is if they scaled him down to about the size of Manhattan, which would basically eliminate the reason for including him at all (i.e., an enemy big enough to have his own gravity well). Your thoughts?
