    Transfans, Im currently working on an Unicron project. I have noticed that in TFTM, he actually had 3 different hand styles. What do ya'll like better, Unicron with or without claws/sharp finger nails? Trans you

    I like the claws, makes him a lot more sinister looking, and all his minions have em, Galvatron, Scourge, Cyclonus, and the Sweeps.

    I personally think that his hands should just look powerful. His feet are very claw-like, so the hands should look like they belong to the same being without being too similar. The right hand should not glow like the Armada toy's does, that's for damned certain!

    I personally feel that the flat fingers are more evocative of Unicron. All the scenes I remember seeing them up close had the flattened ends. Except maybe that one scene where he hit Cybertron, but I can't remember exactly.

    I was going to say non-clawed,but since all his lackeys have claws,I guess clawed is the way to go. I like the idea of them looking like a cohesive team.

    But that's his pimp-slapin' hand! haha and I'd say not claws per-say, but maybe not just straight up blocks either, maybe make them taper a little bit near the end.

    Claws are more imposing. For a planet-eating being to use claws to grab a planet or moon is a bit more frightening than basic fingers.
    The image of claws breaking the surface of a planet with Unicron's face looming in the background gives a great daemonic vibe.

    Claws. They're for for ripping apart those really tough planets. When pincers just don't cut it, transform and claw it!

    Nothing says "I'm a gigantic embodiment of malevolent chaos" like hands that end in wicked talons. Given (I assume) you'll be working in significant detail, the claws might also give the hands a little more character, and if you really wanted to get ambitious, you could go even further and give them like barbs or boarding party airlocks or something.
