    if there was ever a reboot or a sequel trilogy , WHY DO PEOPLE WANT TO BRING THE CONCEPT OF UNICRON IN.

    Heres my reason why i wouldn't

    Because you'd have to have characters going into space , that means space travel and that probably leads to a human in space in a stupid suit that can transform and is super cheesy , plus i didn't like unicron in the first place

    thoughts?

    Autobots and a bunch of IronMan's in space fighting Decepticons and a giant evil planet that wants to destroy the univerce.

    And people seriously don't want to see that?

    That's it, I'm going back to Cybertron.

    Seriously, I don't understand the "bring Unicron into the movieverse" thing either.

    Picture:

    A massive Star Wars-esque Autobot Ship arriving, omnious epic music at the background, humans go into Little Space Pods [like the ones the 'Cons used in DOTM] and fly towards Unicron, from there, a massive string of terror, death, destruction and explosion happens: A planet firing like massive fortress and the human ships countering it.

    Optimus jumps from the ship to Unicron in slow-mo, the ship gets shot down, Optimus runs on UNICRON'S BODY like a boss, this while cutting down thousands of "Unicron Drones", he then jumps inside Unicron's Spark chamber and activates the Matrix.

    Unicron. Motherfucking. Explodes.

    Optimus stands tall on the wreckage and makes his final speech.

    Now tell me: Wouldn't that melt your eyes with the sheer awesomeness?

    Believe it or not, some people don't, the 1986 movie already did that well enough and it was AWESOME. But not in a live action film. Besides, Unicron would eat up the budget like he eats up planets. Plus I just don't see him working in a live action movie, as my brother already put it, it would be "cheesy". And while I don't mind the odd cheesy moment, I'm lactose intolerant. So no thanks.

    By the way, there was no need to be condescending about your opinion too.

    I never liked Unicron honestly. I will say that in DOTM when they showed Cybertron being summoned by the space bridge to Earth, that kinda felt like a Unicron moment. That scene was cool but I dont think Id like to see a whole CG movie done like that scene, with robots flying around it trying to shoot it down.

    The whole fucking comic book heroes movie adaptation madness is a giant avalanche of cheese.

    Fuck the whole Avengers thing is a cheese landslide.

    We can make ANYTHING look cool and belivable in this day and age. Why don't we use it to have some fun once in a while?!

    He is important to the Transformers lore.
    Unicron should be in the most important and well-known part of the franchise, the live action movies. They represent what Transformers is so I think all the important pieces of the Transformers mythology should be implemented into the films, such as Unicron.

    Well, as far as I'm concerned, Michael bay proved me right and every "Galactus" comparers wrong about how a giant entity would look next to Earth.

    Second, The Autobots had space flight in DOTM.

    3rd- re-enforces my reasoning of bringing Roland Emmerich onboard. Nobody can destroy Earth like him. All he needs is a decent script for a decent film.

    Plus, we've seen that Transformers doesn't need a decent script to be successfull.

    Not unless you get 5-7 separate FX houses to shut out any other films in their schedule for 7-8 months to take the time to render Unicron using all their computers.

    I would prefer him to stay out of the movies. Unicron was okay the very first time, but I don't see any need to revisit him as a main villian ever again. He's boring.

    If they're going to re-use a villain concept for the movies, I'd much rather see the Quintessons.

    No! Fuck the Quintessons! They sucked inthe 1986 movie, they sucked in the third season of g1 and they sucked in Energon.

    ANYTHING but the Quintessons!

    This is a different continuity, though. We would most likely get a different take on the Quintessons. They could be total badasses with a major role to the Transformers and what not, you never know?

    Same could be said about Unicron.

    Unicron is a planet that transforms into a giant robot.

    Quints are squid/hentai monsters with five faces. You can't seriosly tell me that cooler than Unicron
