    So I got my 4 and 5 year olds into TF: The Movie last year and they still haven't let it go. Today we were watching and one of them asks me if Unicron can eat planets in robot mode. What say ye?

    I'd say no, his mouth is too small. In the same way that TFs turn into cars to go fast and planes to fly, Unicron becomes a planet eater to... ya know... eat planets.

    I bet he still could eat a planet. Just not all at once like planet mode. He'd have to do it the same way you'd eat an elephant. One bite at a time.

    I guess he could suck the energy out of planets with his hands. That's what I thought his glowing hand on the Armada toy was for when I was a kid.

    In G1 he only uses planet mode to eat. In Armada he actually needs to be a bot to eat.

    Now that I am as confused as yrou children just tell him he needs to be a planet to eat and a bot to fight.

    I kind of remember Unicron attacking Cybertron in robot mode, couldn't he in effect just rip away at the planet and eat it?

    Theoretically, he could do enough damage in robot mode to incapacitate the planet and then devour the planet in planet eating mode.
    Just a thought.

    He uses a blender to blend worlds into a galatic smoothie.

    More the question should be:
    Where does his giant planet-gobbling mouth go in robot mode?

    In robot mode, he drinks planets with a straw. Obviously.

    In the old Marvel comic, he attacked in robot mode. I want to say he clawed a couple bites out of the planet with his hands during the battle. But when he was done messing around, he transformed to planet mode, stating "It is time to feast!"

    Yeah, he did so in issue 75 of the Marvel G1 comic. He digs out chunks of cybertron with his hand and shoves them in his mouth.

    Nice! I think the kid was hoping Unicron could do this. I will have to try and hunt down that issue of TF.

    Being involved in Transformers since last year is a long time for a four year-old. That's like a quarter of their whole life. I mean, can you imagine being into Transformers for a quarter of your life?!

    no kidding! and they both are pretty good at transforming their toys. unfortunately some of the toys are built crappy. can't tell you how many times their transformers: animated figured broke apart until they wouldn't stay together any more.
