    I couldnt help but notice that alot of people seem to be saying they'd like to see Megatronus before Unicron, though when you think about it, they can't really do that. I mean, sure, it makes sense to introduce the lesser evils first, though if this series is really going to get into the Mythos of Unicron and Primus along with the 13 Original Transformers (i mean, if any series ever will, its this one) then we need to have things introduced to us in a certain order.

    If they start with the 13, then we learn of Primus and Unicron through the backstory of the 13. Then, when the bigger guys are introduced, there's nothing to tell, no story, only what happens, no mythos. But by bringing in Unicron (and Primus?), then we get to hear about them, then deal with them. then, at a later point, we are introduced to the Fallen, or the 13, then get to hear their tale and deal with them.

    Now obviously most of that is speculation, but it makes sense, doesnt it? I can see it playing out like that in the future. I think that may be why Unicron is in the spotlight first.

    Why wouldn't they start with a well-known super villian first? Before there was a Primus, Fallen, 13 or whoever there was Unicron.

    The way I see it, if a big guy like Unicron begins to take action it might spur other powerful forces in the Prime universe into action as well.


    It might also attract them all to earth given that its become the center of the escalating conflict.

    If Unicron begins to move, wouldn't the surviving members of the 13 feel concerned? Wouldn't countless other alien races feel concern as well? Those that will side with Unicron, those that would go against him and those would stay neutral could end up coming to earth in droves to promote their goals. They could all be moths to Unicron's flame.

    Earth could become the center of attraction with other factions and powerful forces coming in to test their mettle and loot or scavange for the spoils of war.


    I don't think human factions would stay quiet or happy if their homeworld becomes a potential war zone.

    I think it would be interesting if this causes an all out war to break out.

    I think Transformed got it right. Unicron is more well known, he is NOSTALGIA 80'S stuff, it makes sense to start with him and they build on with more modern mythology such as The Thirteen and Primus.

    It just seems too obvious to me that it's going to be Unicron. I will be pleasantly surprised if it were the Fallen ... and I would welcome that.

    I actually think that it would make more sense to introduce Unicron first in terms of transformer myth but in terms of action the original 13 and the Fallen make sense to happen before Unicron as a build up to Unicron's appearance. Not that i think this is what will happen just from a narrative stand point it would work. Outside of ROTF The fallen and the original 13 are not that well known so i think they will just go for Unicron. Unicron is an old part of transformers and i think many fans will recognize Unicron.

    I prefer Megatronus Prime than I do Unicron.

    He's orange, he's got the beard and moustache, and he's got the horns.

    Horns, moustache, goatee, helmet...The only thing missing is his color-scheme and a giant "UNICRON" written on his forehead.

    Just stop it. It's Unicron. There are so many reasons it's Unicron and absolutely no reason it would be The Fallen or fucking Alpha Trion of all people.

    The level of denial regarding this topic is astounding.

    He has a point though. The face does look like Alpha Trion, and that was one of the speculated bots when the teaser was first shown. I'm not saying it isn't Unicron, I'm just saying that there is a resemblance.
