    Or we could have done a better job figuring it out lol. Strange spelling or not it took forever to figure it out which was probably Hasbro's intention.

    Something apt for IDW Spinister to have the solution be so dumb, I'm more disappointed that the last unlock isn't another sweet stop motion but that "map" of Cybertron.
    I put quotes around "map" because it's more like a neat photorealistic image of Cybertron from opposing sides with lines and names awkwardly scribbled over it. There are two places called the Sonic Canyons? That's gotta be a bit confusing!

    Unicron eject site makes it seem to me that Unicron was inside the planet and that's where he came out chest-burster style. Seems strange but that's the only sense i can make of it.

    I don't think it was ever Hasbro's intentions for us to figure the codes out, rather use blacklights to find the codes and translate.

    That code is weird..I would rather have A final stop motion including hound the battlemasters, the leaders, and battle and race car patrol so there was all of siege wave 1.

    Makes sense when the 'language' is just a cypher of English.

    Wait...
    Spinister's code isn't something related to his backstory or anything, like most of (if not all of) the others?

    I said in the other thread- no Japanese release in G1, no anime appearance, an IDW characterisation that had nothing to do with his G1 version (and probably couldn't be marketed to children) meant there was very little to go on. It's even more unpredictable than BADCOP was for Barricade.

    Grossly unfair in my mind.

    At least MAYHEMATTACKSQUAD (my guess to the code) fit Spinister being part of the team in question in the Marvel Transformers comics.

    Bit sad its just a map of cybertron. Was hoping for an animation bridging the gap between Siege and Earthrise.

    Also wtaf with Spinisters code

    A thought I had was maybe Unicron attacked Cybertron in the past of this continuity and was repelled but not before he started eating the planet? Would explain the bottom part of the planet being a debris field.

    Any astrophysicists or astronomers, or geologists on here?

    Assuming a mass similar to a rocky planet- is the damage depicted at the bottom pole realistic? By that I mean would it not collapse back in on itself to stabilise or would it lead to a runaway cascade of damage that would destroy the planet?

    I love that the final code was something we'd never have guessed.

    As anticlimactic as the map is, it looks really cool!

    Haha- good point!

    But, there's bound to be someone, it's just they may not be checking this thread. Hopefully somebody will be outed!
