And it was written in the Covenant of Primus that when the 47 Spheres align a perpetual conflict will culminate upon a world forged from chaos...

Be warned, there are spoilers to be found here. Thanks to IGN's interview with Robert Orci and other members of the Prime staff we know now that in the future Transformers: Prime will include:


Combiners

Combiners? After some hemming and hawing from the panel, one of the producers said decisively, "We'll have Combiners, don't you worry."


Dinobots

Dinobots? "Those characters are part of our long-term plan,"


And thanks to a video from SDCC we get to see the next big villain of Transformers: Prime, what appears to be Unicron!

I just LOVE TF: Prime, one of my son & I's fave shows to watch together (right up there with Generator Rex). And every grayed out spoiler you just mentioned has ME giddy.

I must now debate with myself on whether or not to tell the boy. Do I hype him up, or let him be shocked. I'm thinking shocked my be decent. :)

If this is indeed Unicron, it looks like he will actually speak unlike Mr "I will stand here and be shot at" from the Unicron trilogy. Instant plus. Dinobots and Combiners, woohoo. Here is hoping the Constructicons and the Stunticons feature so we can get new toys, please (prays to the all mighty Primus).

If that is not Unicron, the only logical (and most obvious) choice for him to be would be the Fallen. From a person who wants to go into the Voice-Acting Business, that part with him talking was done brilliantly, and he only said two words!

Then you add combiners and the Dinobots, which increases it by another 999999999999999999999999999999999999999999%! I know people are going to tell me to cool it or shut it, but this made my day.

In all seriously, Prime may be the best TF cartoon since Beast Wars. If this is where they are going, it's nothing but Epic Win buried in mounds of nice, juicy awesomesauce.

Oh, really? You want to get into voice acting? You should message me some time. I've been a professional voice actor for almost four years now. As far as being Unicron, I have some doubts. Unicron's eyes have always been green and if he's the size of a planet, why is he dormant in a volcano? Plus, we never fully see the horns. Perhaps this is the TF Prime version of Movie Sentinel. Looks Alpha Trion-y to me too which doesn't make any sense. Very very cool though. Looking forward to season 2!!!

Time to change my pants...

*One SailorMoon transformation and hundreds of mentally scared people later*

I am now wearing my "Epic Time" pants, also known as the pants so neon rainbow its against the Geneva Convention and dictators even deem them to brutal to show people. I have been waiting for a chance to finally pull them out...thanks Hasbro and The Prime Staff.

I also have this feeling that an idea I had and wished for them to use is about to become a reality. Unicron might be the creator of Earth and its lifeforms, since he is after all chaos itself and Earth was "Forged" by chaos.
And the conflict may be that Unicron is defending Earth from both Autobots and Decepticons, since he'd view them all as threats to his creations.

Makes sense if read like this;
Organic Life = Evolution = Chaos(Unicron)
Robotic = Built = Order(Primus)

as far as that beginning.... I'm hoping it's some sort of vision someone sees... cause I'd hate for the world to end up like that in the show lol. If it is, would be pretty awesome if Prime was the one who saw it seeing as he's the one spurting out the prophecy. YAAAAY dinobots. Was waiting on that one. I've always loved Grimlock and Prime together!

I think season 2 is WAY too early to introduce Unicron, but if done right they are more than welcome to prove me wrong. The cast is too small to face a villain that big.

Unless of course, they tease that he exists and build up to the threat of him over a season or so.

I think that will be the case. They better tread carefully though, as Unicron is a very substantial foe that shouldn't be undersold. Its got to be the 11th hour/apocalypse if Unicron shows up.

Damn! This series just keeps getting more and more awesome! With all the new figures on the way, as well as the bits and pieces we getting regarding story and future transformers to be included... this is definitely gonna be the best TF series ever! Hope they continue to handle the series and franchise and characters in an appropriate and epic manner!

Long live TF:Prime!!!

Does anyone besides me hope for more than the 3 seasons we're gettin??? I wouldn't mind a season 4 and 5 if they can continue delivering a quality product!

Man, there's been a lot of people on the boards lately who think because something happens in one version it must carry over to all versions (ie. TFP zombie Cliffjumper v. Bayverse resurrected Megatron). Of course, that said Unicron's eye colour does seem a spurious argument as well. #justsaying ;)

These mixed feelings hurt!!! :sad:

I freaking love TF: Prime so far....the cast, the character developement, the action, the Starscream-Megatron, everything is so spot-on! But then....Dinobots? Bleh. Although, if they do it like Wheeljack, a one-episode-er, I'll be perfectly happy. As long as they're not on Earth forever in the base, they get annoying so quickly.

Combiners- cool. Devastator maybe- YEAH!

Unicron - With how awesome this show is, Unicron would be AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!! But that, that was not amazing, at all. Not for Unicron at least. He can't be inside a Volcano, and he can't be on Earth, can he? Isn't he huge?!?! I'm doubting this is Unicron, why the Con symbol? Why the purple everywhere just like the cons? But, the dark energon (blood of Unicron) was purple...I'm just not liking this Unicron. Maybe because I grew up with Deep-voice, enormous, impervious-to-attack Unicron from Armada. But still...

I think the writers know that really dull-witted Dinobots are a bit of a drag, what with how sharp things have been in character interaction so far, so heres hoping they take more from the comic Dinobots.

There are so many good decepticon combiners out there, I hope we get more than one! And it would be nice if they gave Soundwave a bit more of a role. He has always been one of my favorite characters, and I was disappointed that in TF: Prime he is really nothing more than a drone.

I've not seen anything to say he's a drone. Speechless, loyal puppy maybe, underutilized definately, but not drone. He turns into a drone plane, but that's the alt, not him.

Also, I don't think Unicron or whomever is in the volcano. His face looks smoky, like he's in a nebula, not like an eruption. The volcano is problably justy a visual tool to hint at an impending doom. I'm curious, I find it hard to lsbel Earth as "Born from chaos", unless we're applying the laws of entropy as chaos. so is this possibly a lead-in to a Universe style world?

And ;astly, odds are this is Uni, since it was labeled during the blood of arc that he was asleep. I wonder how Unicrosn's gonna like Megatron making zombie soldiers? Or maybe they'll become HIS soldiers, and Megs may well be on a very short leash...

If you go back through ALL of his posts, you will note that he has yet to say anything constructive or positive at any point about anything. My theory is that he is trolling or needs medication.

After watching the trailer I do think that was Unicron and not Scourge or a Prime. I also don't get the impression that he was in the volcano but that it was a sign of him awakening.

Still, I think it's WAY too early to introduce Unicron. He should have been a series finale type character.

Well, thank f**king God. Something is going to happen in this show!

I do like TF: Prime, don't get me wrong, but this show has been boring as hell to me thus far. Seems like every episode is a stand-alone - and a weak one at that. Let's hope they start to change that.

Are you kidding me?

It's Transformers. Recurring characters like Pick-A-Series-Optimus Prime, Movie Bumblebee, Animated Bulkhead, G1 Wheeljack, Pick-A-Series Megatron, Ditto-Starscream, G1-Ratchet, G1-colored Breakdown. Change some voicing and/or personality traits, couple of slight variations in looks, still as viable as any of the new mentions coming. Arcee's a motorcycle, something that's been happening since, what, Energon? Only Animated broke that cycle, lol, only to have Prime rev it up again. And, oh look, there's little human characters. Guess that's never happened in a TF series? And, unless I'm mistaken, which I'm not, Unicron's been mentioned since the very. first. episode. Matter of time right there, matter of time. To equate mere mentions of names and labels like Dinobots, Unicron and Combiners to the show suddenly being unoriginal is a little over half a year too late.

That said, for rehashing old names, looks, and elements they've done fairly well enough to make TF:Prime its own. I see no intelligent reason not to assume that will continue with the new content & characters.

Come on now Burn. It's called "PRIME". The show never had the chance to be ALL original. Other than the kids and other humans, just about everything in the show has been used before. But this is Unicron! Quite possibly the most baddass villain of all villains! IMO(calm down). Certainly you can see the potential for coolness! :D

This universe is bigger than you think it is. We've known about the status of both Sentinel Zeta Prime and Alpha Trion since before this show even began. Play the WFC games and/or read the Exodus novel. It's all in there and it's all canon in regards to this show's world.

I believe this is Unicron, I especially since his eyes are purple, plus the Volcano's eruption was also purple, remember Darkness Rising? The Dark Energon or the Blood of Unicron?
Yea, I guess this is Unicron.
Also, since Hasbro did state that the show/franchise was going to feature the 13, I guess the entire second season will have Unicron's awakening as a constant threat. With the 3rd season being where the sh*t hits the fan and Unicron shows up with his boys vs the rest of the 13 that are still loyal to Primus.
Personally, I believe this will be awesome. Even if it's kinda early.

But then again, this might be some other guy.

:shock: I almost went into shock when I saw what I'm assuming is Unicron. :BOOM: and to all those who say he's been "used to much", this one was inside a volcano, so he's not planet sized, and possible normal sized. That's pretty original if you ask me.

Posted by nikeprime on July 22nd, 2011 @ 9:35am CDT
If you really think about it and the scale to the other Transformers, I wouldn't say Unicron is "planet sized" more like a Large Asteroid. You could very easily fit a large, Asteroid sized Transformer UNDER a Volcano in the Earth.

Looking at it again, perhaps it could be Galvatron. It seems a little... purple to be Unicron. Perhaps Unicron sent Galvatron to prepare Earth for him

I'm looking forward to these developments. I don't think of TF:P as a "brave new endeavor" in the Transformers mythos. It is a reboot/rehash with CGI. I'm okay with that. I don't have HUB anymore, so I'm watching them in a block from a friend's DVR.

I'm looking forward to these new characters. I have a feeling the phrase "That's just PRIME" will take on new meaning in these boards.

There are absolutely no irreconcilable contradictions between WFC and Prime. They fit together without any major complications. The Exodus novel helps cement the two together even further, as it tells the same basic story as WFC with further expansions on the WFC story that make it fit in more smoothly with the Prime cartoon.
