    Some cool ideas - I like the head idea! In terms of what it would take for me to be interested in a unicron? Normally I'd just say 'a great toy', but the overuse of the early 2000s makes me want to add 'done really well and imaginatively in an idw storyline'.

    Honestly?

    Two versions. A smaller leader-class one for fans on a budget and then a massive titan-scale one for collectors. Let people pick what they want. High end collectors are happy as they get a monster. Low-end collectors get a decent Unicron (you could even call it something like 'Herald of Unicron' and make the story be it is smaller bot, an extension of Unicron, that he uses to explore and find new planets to consume.)

    Yeah I'll second fans on a budget. He deserves a Titan Class, but I wouldn't pay for it. Thats just me though. Id buy that statue of just the head if it was around $40 to $50

    I'm waiting for a Scorponok announcement before jumping into Titan Class.

    Unicron - not interested

    head into playset for legends is the only thing i'd really care about. it'd still be wildly out of scale but it'd be a lot less overt than a supreme-sized planet with deluxes and shit.

    For something really different for Unicron that I would like to see instead of a planet mode. Have him transform into Deathsaurus's Dark Fortress from Victory. In titan scale, 2 feet tall would be fine. Would be pretty sweet I think. Also have a third mode where it opens into a playset for legends scale figures.

    I guess just a serviceable playset area to set figures up and play in

    Legends class or nothing. I'm so sick of Unicron. I'd much prefer to get some new characters as Heralds of Unicron than the big guy himself.

    I'd be for a new Unicron as long as it was at least in scale with the Titan Class line if not a little larger. I love my Armada Unicron but it just feels too small for such a character now that we have larger Titan Class figures now. I'd also like to see it modeled after the G1 model and also as a bonus, I'd like to see him have a robot head that can stay attached in planet mode or can detach for drifting around Cybertron.

    I'll take your idea and one-up it with:

    Planet mode converts to Head mode or a Battle Station mode.

    Rather than being a vertical playset, it's a wide set that opens up and features rooms within, doubling as a storage case.

    I'd love to see an MP-style Unicron, official or 3rd party, based on the artwork of Geoff Senior and Andrew Wildman. I know the cartoon version is more popular and iconic, but I really like how menacing he looked in the comics:

    Honestly, I really like the Amazon exclusive Unicron I already have. It's the perfect size for my collection. Small enough to make space for it yet still towers over most of everything else. Personally, I wish all the new Titans were Armada Unicron sized. Though I know that is not a popular opinion.

    i really want some fuckin acolytes of unicron like in marvel. a bunch of generic transformers with unicron masks on would be a cool way of having unicron’s (possible) existence as a threat without actually doing unicron. shit, that tlk combiner guy already has unicron horns, just repaint him

    Also go back to dark Energon. I want figures with clear purple ‘veins’ running through them to emphasize their connection to Unicron.

    Modern Titan size, G1 stylings, with an actual spherical planet mode.
    Unique minicons/legends that transform into an Autobot shuttle, Galvatron's ship, Quintesson ship and Junkion ship.
    3rd mode that's a giant head so you can use him as a playset.
