    For some reason, Voyager- and even Leader- scale toys seem to enjoy more detailing and articulation than Supreme size toys. BM Cheetor comes to mind.

    Now, I did have an Armada Unicron, and it wasn't bad when it came to details and articulation... but I still kinda think they missed the boat with him with those large, removable circular shell panel things.

    Now, I know the character Unicron is big, and so was the toy. But it was way too big for my tastes.

    Personally, I think that if they made a Voyager or Leader scale Unicron, it would be better.

    Just a thought.

    That would upset the scale freaks, which means I'm onboard.

    I like big chars big. G1 Metroplex is impressive, and so is Trypticon. They are fun becuase they have all the ramps, and because they literally tower over your regular toys. I also loved energon Omega Supreme, and I'm sure all those toys wouldn't have appealed to me if they had fit inside a deluxe box.
    It doesn't mean "the bigger, the better" either: I don't like the giant versions of Animated Optimus Prime, or movie Bumblebee. But I'd wish they had made Anim. Omega Supreme and movie Blackout respectively in those sizes.

    So, I think it's more of a kids' thing: deluxes might look aesthetically better in your shelves, but ultras are awesome and they make for incredible additions to your army of armed to the teeth robots :)

    Unicron is so badass, he needs his own size class.

    They made a deluxe size Unicron in Cybertron, but everyone always seems to forget that.

    Nah. Make him small and you get rid of the impact he has. Unless it's a 'reborn' version like the deluxe figure.

    Any Unicron small enough for us to own is out of scale.

    One of the best releases in the Cybertron line, IMO.

    I wouldn't be opposed to a new version of Unicron, but I'm pretty happy with the Armada and Energon versions that I own.

    They could do another supreme class. Unicron. The issue with the Armada Unicron was not size but when it was made. The toy is 7 years old after all.

    Think Energon Skorponok's scorpion construction tank mode, with the G1 sculpted homages the cybertron deluxe included.

    imposing almost construction like super machine claws and teeth to tear apart its foes.

    Bio-mechanical molded detail, flip out laser cannons, perhaps even a elaborate cowcatcher grill that opens up into unicrons jaw of oblivion.

    I'm fine with the supreme class version. Don't need anything other than that one, unless it's 6 feet tall or bigger.

    I wouldn't a Voyager Unicron figure if it could improve upon the flaws the Surpreme Unicron had. Besides it's not like a scale accurate Unicron is even humanly possible so a smaller, better designed version would be great.

    i'd imagine if they made a voyager sized unicron toy that transformed from bot to planet. many TF fans would use the supreme size AEC unicron as a planet & the voyager unicron as the moon.

    I like voyager sized toys,so I'd probably buy a voyager sized unicron toy. though the toy would have to look drastically different in both modes compared to the AEC version to warrant a purchase. more on the lines of hasbro/takara doing something similar to the beastwars neo unicron cancelled proto type/test shot toy.

    Personally If I had my way newer molds of trypticon & metroplex would be leader sized. as the leaders get more complicated transformations,higer sculpts,& more adult themed designs. compared to the toddler targeted supreme sized TF toys.

    USS Flagg sized Unicron maybe? Minicon Unicron (Dead end repaint)? Do we need more Unicron action?
