Still, I love these types of box sets.

And suddenly we have a theory that makes sense. I mean, Megatron has a handful of Prime-equippable-only artifacts after all, and Unicron will be weak for the time being, he needs a body. And who better than Prime? In fact, what better TOOL than that forging hammer to fix Unicron properly??


Ya, that works well enough, but the figure doesn't really seem like Unicron is possessing Prime. It looks more like Prime found a way to diassemble Unicron and reassemble him into a weapon for his own use. Lets face it; Has/Tak can't get enough of Prime and pretty much give him everything - Power armour, his own metroplex like city former. >:oP
But hey, I won't bum out the resta ya any further for those who are genuinely into the idea.


Optimus Prime likes to make others his bitches, and he don't care whether they're dead or not!

This, or the inverse of the situation... to deal with some kind of cosmic threat, Optimus uses the power of the Primes (stored within the Matrix) to reformat one of Unicron's avatars into a sort of makeshift power armor (much as was done with Jetfire's body in Revenge of the Fallen)...

Really? I thought Unicron hated the humans because they were parasites. :???:

Then again, I also thought that Optimus Prime wanted some Cybertronian lovin' from Unicron, when he made his Vash the Stampede-like speech about love and peace. :P

Hopefully he doesn't have many stickers.

I am with you on this. I mean while PRIME as a whole (as in English and Japanese) is my #2 series, I don't like how lazy Takara Tomy was when it comes to their "Arms Microns" line.

The animation for the tie-in is so bad that it makes Rescue Robots go from a kiddie show to something like what Studio Ghibli would have done in one of their commercials. The stickers should have been tampographs for most of the characters, as Arcee's is reported to have it really bad with hers.

Oh, and if you do decide to get a Unicron from this series, consider getting AM-19 Gaia Unicron. He is currently on preorder at TFsource with the price of $64.95. $68.95 if you are one of those collectors who prefer having it in a "mint" box. It will not come with AM-01 Optimus Prime as this item will, but it might be a better deal if you just want Unicron. :D

Story-wise this teamup doesn't really make any sense, but I'm liking the concept of a Decepticon+Autobot combination. Gaia Unicron also seems great on his own.

Imagine if they were to make a new series with the combination gimmick in the veins of Superlink/GalaxyForce, and in the midpoint of the story you'd get wacky stuffs like Starscream in Magnus Armor or an Optimus/Megatron gattai into MegaConvoy. :-?

It's really Mythical God-Autobot combination, considering the fact that Unicron resides with either faction, and the Decepticons are merely his disciples, but I get your point.

Unicron pairing himself up with a human creation would likely insult Unicron more.

MEANWHILE, the god of chaos (Keyword: GOD) has to resort to teaming up with a human creation, created to resemble a direct decendent of his greatest enemy. Sorry, takara droped the ball (as usual).

I think that Unicrons combining gimmick is awesome looking but with Optimus!!!!!!!!:shock: ...really...that doesn`t make any sense since Unicron is an enemy of Prime not a helper. #-o Why did they put prime with him when really it should be Megatron because he`s evil and would make more sense but then again it would make even more sense if Unicron was on his own.

You act like there would be some sort of teamwork involved in this. FYI, Unicron's no team player. He'd be one in the driver's seat, possessing the Nemesis unit and turning it against its creators. Nemesis is a non-living entity. Unicron could easily turn it into one of his own minions just as he does to other lesser beings. Plus, this Gaia Unicron toy does not represent Unicron himself, but one of his dirt-based avatars. In a sense, Unicron would be using a puppet controlling another puppet since he no longer possesses a corporeal form of his own. Unicron is the ultimate puppet master who takes what isn't his and twists and taints it into something ugly for his own gain. So what if he hate humans? He hate Primus' children (the Transformers, which include the Decepticons) yet still uses them just like he would use Nemesis.

But Unicron would be forced to use a, lets call NP a thing, of human design. The fact is, Unicron would never use the tools of lesser creatures. Also, why on earth would he NEED to. He can create a dozen hundred foot dirt avatars of himself. Combining with a human machine would be pointless. Combining with ANYTHING would be pointless, but especially a machine of human design. Also, while Unicron may hate all Cybertronians, he holds a special hatred for "Primes". You saw how he reacted to finding out Optimus Prime was still alive.

At full power, yes, but Unicron just got beaten to a pulp. He won't be doing ANYTHING without some sort of help for some time.

Not unless he chose to on his own volition.

He used BWII Galvatron's corpse (a lifeless body belonging to a race of lesser creatures) for himself in Beast Wars II.

Never said he'd NEED to. He could do it just cuz.

But, suppose he wanted a herald to do his dirty work for him while he's in his dormant state post-season 1. And suppose, at this point, he wasn't picky and, through some means, got a hold of the Nemesis unit and created a living herald from it. Then he'd make it so this new minion of his could power up with the assistance of any of his dirt avatars when necessary.

All the more reason to twist and corrupt the image of a Prime into a hideous abomination that defies and insults the very nature of a Prime. See Universe Nemesis Prime for this kind of corruption. ;) 8)

Top 5 Priorities:

1) BW Neo X-7 Elphaorpha
2) BW II VS-18 Powerhug vs. Autocrusher
3) Universe 2003 Night Slash Cheetor
4) Arms Micron Terrorcon Bumblebee

It's Unicron. He wouldn't choose to period. Not when there is Megatron, who had already been partially corrupted by Dark Energon

And in another japanese cartoon, that will go nameless for obvious reasons, Unicron can create planets he destroyed, or somthing like that. This is me, ignoring the japanese shows.

But that would be beyond ignoring the charicter of Unicron. I can't think of a situation where he would choose to. But even if he DID want to (so unlikely, its impossible), how would he do it? Unicron has been shown to corupt through dark energon, NP hasn't had any exposure to the element. Megatron HAS.

Universe Nemisis Prime wasn't created by humans. If unicron wanted to go that far, he may as well try to corrupt the genuine article.

Look guys I'm sure this will all be explained when it is released. That said I'd like to direct your attention to a little detail.

Gaia Unicron. Not Dark, Lord, Dark Lord, or Dark God Unicron, but Gaia...this implies to me that our lovable giant robo-daddy Unicron may have been "influenced" (in the same way Scourge and Starscream in the past have been) by the Matrix. Possibly he goes good temporarily due to being forcibly turned good by the Matrix (aka Primus and the Primes of the Past).

Then he gets mad goes bad and b**ch slaps Miko into the next dimension and we all rejoice.

Due to his rather unique birth, Grimlock has a slow but endearing speech pattern, which can easily make you forget he's Godzilla with style. And weapons.

How does "Gaia" imply "good"? It just refers to his being inside the Earth and using dirt to create duplicates of himself.

Wait. Then what is his alt mode? :lol: I always thought the exo-suit was his alt mode... Oh well, comeon guys, its TFP Unicron, he was just a Rock Lord in the show... and that's how I'll display mine.

But still... why does it combine with Prime and not a Con...

The Takara Nemesis toy will likely be sold as a :CON: so that'll fit better than :BOT: Optimus.

not sure that kind of sense is welcome in this thread. ;) But yes! I'd definitely like some more pics of the guy.
