Color me optimistic! The build to this has been going on for years (unless you ask Randomhero who vehemently disagrees - it's all good!) and I think the Transformers of this universe need an actual kick in the pants rather than the ants in the pants of Ironblood's coalition. This also provides an ample, appropriate opportunity to bring together some disparate plot threads, resurrect others, and maybe even change out the casts of the ongoings a bit like Dark Cybertron did.

To those worried about the look: it's promotional material. Nothing says Unicron will actually look like this. Their first promo shot from SDCC was very different. Besides, a Luna 1/Necroworld/Rung hybrid would probably be messy at the outset anyhow. Armada Unicron was a rocky moon before becoming Sideways' Gentlemen's Lounge For Wayward Mini-Cons And Definitely Not A Trap.

I'm thinking and wondering: will this tie in to the destruction of LV-117? I mean, I'm pretty sure a lot of us can agree that that was a Unicron teaser

I think so. Given that Dark Cybertron's finale had a Unicron tease considered for inclusion at some point, I'd go so far as to say this is more likely than not.

It's been long rumored that Unicron would finally be making an appearance somewhere in the IDW Comic Universe, and that day finally came with the release of First Strike #6! Today we have a little behinds the scenes clip of the production of that dramatic reveal in the most recent issue from the artist that drew it, James Raiz! The video, sent to us by James himself, is quite spectacular, and shows his amazing seeing and drawing process. Watch as the bringer of chaos seems to come to life before your eyes via a time lapse, while James gives a bit of an insight on how he came to be drawing Unicron professionally for IDW!

Check out the full video below, read Seibertron.com's review of this issue here, and tell us in the comments what you thought of Unicron's entrance into IDW!

OK, THAT Unicron I can live with. Having him be metal underneath the rock makes sense if he's been asleep for a long time. Awesome art job by that guy, too.
