    Circuit Breaker helped defeat Unicron once.

    Great.... More humans with the power to slaughter transformers or in this case taking more focus off of Transformers when that's all that I really wanna see in this Unicron arc.

    But I wouldn't be surprised if they gave "Verity Carlo" that Circuit Breaker role after she discovers a "Human" Matrix!

    Which could be good if done right but after looking at Barber's track record.....Meh!

    Wait till you see how the My Little Pony crossover fits in. Unicron can only be defeated by the power of friendship.

    Really?

    Because I don't see anything hard to guess or to explain here.

    G1 Unicron is an obviously mechanical looking planet. Both Sunbow and Marvel. That's what fans usually recall when someone says Unicron.

    Especially for G1. Heck, the Unicron trilogy used pretty much the same look with small updates.

    This one looks like... Well, like a piece of floating volcanic rocks. That's not his canonical look.

    It hardly looks like Unicron unless you're told that this is him.


    TBH if I had doubts about skipping the Unicron even... Now they're pretty much gone.

    I figured it would be like how Armada Unicron looked like a rocky moon until he blasted the surface off, & revealed the mechanical planet beneath.

    You can see that his planetary ring is made of actual asteroids not connected each to another. There's no way classic Unicron continuous ring and its connectors could be inside.

    Canon? My friend, this is Transformers. EVERYTHING is canon.

    Also, are you forgetting about this?[​IMG]

    Hey if it means bringing back Verity Carlo back into the mix.

    I kid, but seriously Windsweeper II put it best back at page 1. We're all the way here now. IDW HAS to pull all the stops for Unicron to be a threat to EVERYONE. Gi Joe, ROM and the Micronaughts can't do jack to the Chaos Bringer himself, but they can sure as hell hold off his heralds or his antibodies. Thought about that?

    I honestly have to wonder if it was original characters in an "Expanded Transformers Universe" and not G.I. Joe and Rom, would people still be bitching the same way?

    If changes to character appearances rendered things non-canon, we'd have quit being official back around the time of Beast Wars.

    If a change in appearance to a character from 30 years ago IN THIS FRANCHISE is what you draw the line at, well... bye.

    Exactly what I think. Unicorn destroys Cybertron and by extension its colonies, the whole universe is doomed, which by extension means everyone else in the Hasbro-verse. While G.I. Joe, MASK, Rom, the Micronauts, and whoever else gets involved fights off his undead army to defend civilization, the Transformers work to destroy him.

    Unicron could be on a straight course for Cybertron and on his way there he appears in LL with the GC and BB getting involved, then in a special ROM mini the space knights get involved, in a Micronauts mini they get involved and so on. Routing their armies till they all bundle their powers on Cybertron for a last stand.

    Well that's the best idea so far. Personally I don't believe that this will happen but it doesn't hurt to speculate.

    However they do it though, it should be more than just fighting. A lot of it - probably the majority of the event and the build up - should be suspense building and characterisations.
    And they better think of a really awesome way to end it to avoid anti climax.
