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

Dr. Heavy B wrote: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.
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.

Dr. Heavy B wrote: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.
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)

I'll probably get yelled at for this but... It's just a toy. If you don't like a gimmick, don't use it. ;) True, story-wise it doesn't make sense, but I don't care.
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
5) BW Convobat (red) & Megalligator (purple)

Preparing to move to the US!

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.
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Ramjet, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Blurr, or 3rd Party Motobot Arcee, iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.
