    Yes it would be awesome to see that large a transformer like that from cgi but at hte same time hes been in every transformer comic or cartoon. As awesome as it would be should we give the giant planet eater transformer a rest?

    We dont need Unicron. Sure he'd be a welcome addition, but I do kinda see the whole overdone aspect of it all. However, we DEFINATELY need more gestalts. Like the Stunticons. Hells yeah.

    I don't think Unicron in live action would be as impressive as everyone thinks. He'd be the Death Star, a ball amongst stars. We've seen that. And even when he transforms, with no scale reference (black and stars) the live action robot loses some of its grandeur and awe, I think.

    Concur. Unicron has been way overused as of late.

    No. It was bad enough having Galactus in FF4:2. No more planet-eaters. Let G1 Unicron have all the glory.

    No Unicron. But please bring in MORE Combiners. And when I capslock'd MORE, it really means it.

    I'd much rather prefer it if the movies focused on the Robot's war on our planet rather then begin flying through space fighting a moon sized robot. So no, Unicron is not needed for this particular series.

    Also, iirc, he's only been in G1 (the movie) and the A/E/C trilogy.

    No, keep him and Primus out of this and leave the work to the soldiers.

    No, they need 2 times more Transformers in the next move, and not try to over do it with any planet sized robots.

    I think they should have more of them at the start of the movie and not put it off tell the last 1/4 of the film as well.

    I still don't know if I want to see a new Megatron in the next film either, it would be kind of nice to see him come in late, and watch Starscream and him have it out at the end of the movie, but as far as your original question... nope keep Unicron out.
