    Well, unfortunately for me I'd already entered the contest with my Mirage piece, so I can't enter this one now. :( 

    The main design philosophy I had with this one is movie Matrix of Leadership. Since the Matrix and Unicron share a link (being the only thing that can defeat him) I wanted them to look similar.

    And that ended up working well for scale purposes. He's actually very mechanical when you get close enough, but on a backed-out planetary scale he appears somewhat organic.

    As for design elements, I wanted him to feel very alien. Very old. Kind of bug-like. I felt a planet-sized bipedal robot just wouldn't work in the movie universe. He's got a few legs that will "accordian" out and kind of wrap around planets as much as possible.

    He's got a couple elements designed to reference his G1 look, including the "mouth", the horns and wings.

    Anyway, comments and criticisms welcomed.

    It looks great!
    It does look like it could fit the movie style.

    Holy moly... I love it. It gives me lots of Narada vibes, which is a good thing. I suppose like the Fallen, he doesn't transform?

    I haven't really decided if he transforms or not. I'm not sure if it makes too much sense for him to. I just kind of see him flying through space, wrapping his legs around planets and begins chomping away, absorbing the energy.

    WAY COOL!
    It's very demonic looking... give it a gigantic size reference by putting a normal sun next to him... and them make Him EAT IT! Nah I'm being silly... he has to be huge! He's Unicron!
    I know it's just the frontal view now but give more depth to him with a size view or even a 3/4 shot and there's more to decipher. The mouth STAYS! unh!

    YES, yes, yes. Wings to wrap around worlds to eat them from all directions! He doesn't need that tail I think... unless it's somewhat a propulsion system.. through space... uhhh clear that up?
    Unless you'll let that part connect the wing tips together and cage a world solidly when devouring it.
    I think it's nice... very symmetrical... but this is a far off view... and it's a robot.

    Great, Awesome job overall!

    Man, that is both cool and creepy. Not exactly what I imagined, but I could see it on the big screen.

    Thanks for the in-depth reply!

    I do plan to do a size comparison soon enough. Maybe do a quick pic of him eating a planet. As for a 3/4th view, I'd love to as well. But that'll have to wait until I can get a tablet at the end of the month.

    As for the tail, you hit the nail on the head. It's for propulsion. When I imagined him moving through space, I saw a tail snaking behind him.

    Oh, and yes. Everbody seems to noticing it, but another design philosophy I had was that he had to be friggin' scary! This is the primary reason why his glowing insides are lava-like (like some kind of Hell demon) rather then Energon blue I had initially.
