That's a very abstract volcano. I can see where you're getting at, but it's still only vaguely similar. It's like saying The Fallen's alt mode is the Decepticon insignia; it's got the impression of it, but it's not immediately recognizable as such.

The idea of having veins of flowing lava is cool...
The idea of him being a volcano is cool...

But it was rushed, making it look twiggy. : /

I wonder if his horns are made of rubber?
If it ever did see a domestic release, and those are plastic, they'd have giant pingpong balls on the end for child safety.

Well, "stupid" child safety, but present nonetheless.

I really like Unicrons robot mode but that alt mode is garbage. Plus, the combined modes do nothing for me. The face in his abdomen is creepy though. Why is Ironhides micron orange? Horrible choice there IMO.

But he's not he Earth. It was explicitly stated at NYCC 2011 by the show's creator that Unicron is NOT Earth, but that the Earth formed around him. So, he's essentially encased within the Earth's core, forever imprisoned down there (unless he breaks free, which would utterly ruin our planet).

He's also not a volcano...but that didn't stop them.

Yeah, but the episode did have a volcano in it spewing his blood.
And rock was able to be manipulated by him, so... it kind of is right.

Still, alt mode's wretched.

I'm talking about the show character, who is non-corporeal. This toy, however, represents one of his dirt avatars.
