    I know that unicron is used alot in TF, but since this is kind of a big old G1 homage, maybe there should be. Maybe Ultra Magnus joins the All Spark, and passes his Autobot Matrix/All Spark on to...Sentanal Prime, and durring the battle with Unicron Sentanal get's cold feet, and Optimus get's the matrix/allspark, and uses it to Light the Transformers darkest hour?

    No.

    Unicron needs to be left alone for a long time.

    Not everyone has a Club membership,so I've not read his bio.

    My feelings are,give Uni a rest,they over did him since G1,"Oh,look the Vok used Uni's image."Oh looky,Sideways has made himself a computer virus,and look a giant planet.Oh what's that you say Sideways,his name is Unicron and he eats planets,ok."

    We've had Uni in G1,a brief glimpse in BW,had him in Armada,Energon,a figure in Cybertron.We just need a rest from Uni.

    That would actually be pretty cool. Unlike Hotrod we actually saw Optimus Prime prove he is worthy so it would make a lot more sense for the Matrix to choose him, unless Hotrod who just showed up.

    I'm not sure if I want to see Unicron or not. If it went into 4 seasons then perhaps. Unicron has been used to death, but I also really want to see how Animated would handle it.

    No.

    Dear Primus no. Unicron is an abundantly overused poor plot device that cripples good writing and characterization. Animated should keep to Autobots and Decepticons, and not go into the whole Primus/Unicron religious zone.

    I really hope we don't see Unicron rear his mug in the Animated universe.

    That said, I am interested in seeing how his design would be done, and how it would translate into toy form.

    ...especially since I still need to get Unicron (and Primus).

    I would support Unicron in a proper cinema movie similar to 86, but only after 2 more seasons and lots of character development of the main cast.

    No I dont mind the concept being introduced but he should never actually appear in animated.

    I agree. They used Unicron way too much.

    Cyclonus' bio seems to indicate he works for Unicron, but I really dislike Unicron, so...


    please no!

    I vote "no" as well, mainly because the whole Autobot/Decepticon thing is rather black and white (in a good way IMO) and introducing a 'greater evil' like Unicron just muddies things up.

    i can live with Unicron in it, but only if mentioned. or maybe better yet. the battle with Unicron happened before the last civil war, so really none of the current cast will even know much about it. it will enable Cyclonus' bio to be right cos he believes Unicron will return.
