Unicron can combine with Megatron.

And there was a great sigh of relief breathed far and wide by many a skeptic across the diverse Internet fandom.

I'm excited about OP but I wished Takara had slapped some paint on that damn red lever. I'm also sold on Ironhide, can't wait til he comes out but I'm not convinced on Unicron. I'm gonna have to wait for some "in hand" pics and eventually a video review. :VEHI:

I'm thinking i kinda like that Unicron. I like the colours on him. Haven't a clue as to what that alt mode is though. It makes no sense to me. I too will also have to wait and see some better pics to decide if i want him or not.
That Soundwave pic makes me want to cancel my pre order. Looks boring as hell. Needs stickers or more apps or something. Looks chinsey to me.

Not this skeptic. Whether it's Optimus or Megatron, the combined mode looks like gash.

Sabrblade wrote:Unicron turns into a ROTF The Fallen-class of spaceship. :P

With antlers.

Not digging the addition of green, but I suppose it helps emphasize the Gaia part of Gaia Unicron. All that balls about needing the power of the Matrix to defeat Unicron; did no one consider just covering him with a piece of paper?

It's perhaps a waste of money but I'd quite happily leave Unicron in bot mode for forever.

I'm still liking Ironhide and still hoping Hasbro doesn't leave him in the hands of Takara.

As cool as Arms Master Optimus is I wouldn't replace my First Edition with him so see little point in getting this guy. The addition of the Matrix simply doesn't justify a purchase.

Not really feeling that Unicron. Too many different oranges. Maybe better pics will sway me, but those 'con symbols sure aren't.
The only cool parts seem to be the wings, the huge horns, and the smaller horns. The rest is kind of a let down. Those arms look more like pine cones since they have to be blunt for the toys sake (I'm down with c-clips but do we really need them there??). Those legs look too long either, but that could be remedied by better posing.

"Arms Microns" Ironhide, to me, looks like one of those old guys who used to be hefty when he was younger but lost the weight as he grew older. And now he is stuck skinny-flabby body that looks weird enough to be repulsed by it if he was wearing a Speedo, but try not to be because it is intriguing and makes you wonder if that is how you will look when you are his age. :P

double u tee eff to Unicron. What the hell? Does he have normal arms, I mean hands?
I actually like his alt-mode. Looks like ROTF voyager megatron, but different :p

The combined mode doesn't look like a combined mode at all, just shoulderpads and a cape of divided limbs. That's going to look horrible.

Anyway, can't pass up a Unicron.

I dearly hopeso that Hasbro makes that Beast Wars Unicron, or that they make a non-electronic cheap version of the True G1 Unicron!!!!!

But for now, I'll settle with WFC/FOC Arcee, why isn't she in FOC???? High Moon, DLC Arcee pleaszzze, she was great in Escalation.

Unicron's pretty strange but I still like it. It looks like he only vaguely combines with Prime & Megatron, so maybe he'd combine with FE Prime too? I'll probably just combine him with Megatron anyway, if at all. Although, I really hope Hasbro releases him and Ironhide... ALL the so-far Takara-exclusives. $60 Voyagers are just too much for me.

Oh, and MP Soundwave needs to be in my life.

No Fembots in FOC. The customization system doesn't allow those kind of parts to fit in.

strangely, I think Unicrom would have looked good...or better at least...with the Hasbro light-up gimmick.some translucent orange plastic and some red LED could have made that look pretty cool. Bot mode is actually not bad. I do like the design of him. get a very Final Fantasy sort of vibe off him. alt mode is pants and the combined mode is pants and a jacket. ;) his micron looks interesting. is it a rock that becomes a squirrel?

Ill bet you anything that hasbro wont be able to release unicron in the states because the giant horns on the sholders will be a safety hazard and if they do the horns will be drasticly shortend.
