    It atleast 10 years for Unicron to show up in the Live-Action films, How long do you think it will take for him to show up again now that it's rebooted?

    Hopefully never. He's cool in TV shows or comics where you can spend a bunch of short installments building to him. A movie centering around such a massive threat inevitably plods and limps around, wasting time better spent on other things.

    I'd rather not re-use any plot elements the previous movies used, if it can be helped.

    Unicron is never going to appear, at least not in Bayformers style.

    I'll be honest, I haven't read much of the comics, so I'm going to go off of what I know of Unicron. If Unicron makes an appearance, whether in Bayformers or the new reboot, I hope they change it so that it doesn't heavily imply the Earth is Unicron. Because that just sounds silly to me that all the lush greenery along with all organic sentient carbon based life form basically grew on his skin like we're all mold to him. Just my thoughts on it.

    Give him a more worthy and better buildup, like Thanos got in the MCU.

    We don't know if there are any more films coming. . .Let's get a good series of NON-bay films FIRST-and given the Unicron-is-Earth route that both the 5th film and TFP went, maybe Unicron should be left out of the movies. . .I second the opinion that there should be no more repeats of the first 5 films IF there are any more. A good break might be in order. . .

    I mean, that was exactly what you were going to have gotten if TLK hadn't deep-sixed the entire franchise. Did you really think they were just going to use Unicron as a one-and-done, without him even transforming (because let's be fair, him transforming is an instant lose condition for the Autobots and since when have the Autobots ever actually lost to anything done by an enemy that wasn't human in the films aside from the war itself)?

    No, they were going to treat Unicron as their answer to Thanos. The next film wouldn't have been about Unicron - the evidence of the Bumblebee film having had some part of it set in the Vietnam War for some ungodly reason, as well as that shitty WWII...thing...shows they would have milked the 'human history' angle far too hard before finally revealing Unicron...somewhat, because again, he was never going to Transform.

    Bumblebee is set in a new movie continuity (often referred to as the Knightverse), as opposed to the earlier 'Bayverse' movies. It started out as a Bayverse prequel, then became it's own thing after the Last Knight disaster.

    They were meant to be, then Travis Knight was left free to do his own thing, when things didn't go too well with the last Bayverse movie.

    Yet the Tfwiki site still seems to have the characters under the Movie category. Hmm...

    Plus, I'm somewhat hesitant in calling it a ’Knightverse’ unless it shares the universe with another Hasbro film, which I hope will be the case with Snake Eyes and Micronauts.

    I forgot,
    I could edit the TFWiki now to say that the movies are part of the Unicron Trilogy. While your point may have credible sources, an unofficial fan-site isn't one of them.
