Via online retailer Amazon, we have a listing for the final trade paperback for this narrative continuity in the IDW Publishing Transformers universe (barring any issues in scheduling releases, of course) collecting the mini-series / event named after its main threat: Unicron.

Due out next March 2019, the blurb hints at something of a revenge story from the devourer of worlds, and the event itself should be starting this month, so stay tuned to Seibertron.com for more coverage as we discover it!

Transformers: Unicron Paperback – March 12, 2019
by John Barber (Author), Alex Milne (Illustrator)

The end is nigh! Unicron, a planet-sized being that devours other worlds, has set its sights on Cybertron and all of its colonies–including Earth!

Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, and their friends must unite every Cybertronian, Earthling, and ally they have to stand against this threat to all existence. But why is Unicron hellbent on destroying Cybertron–what original sin did Optimus Prime’s ancestors commit to earn this wrath? It’s an all-out battle against extinction as the world-destroying, universe-shattering threat of Unicron comes to destroy everything.

Collects the complete six issue series Transformers: Unicron.

A revenge story? So will thus be a riff of the original take of primus v unicron after all :-?

If so, that is both disappointing and creatively, lazy as hell.

There could be some room to maneuver depending on specifics.

"...must unite every Cybertronian, Earthling, and ally they have..."

Clearly this means the most important hero in the universe will be showing up.

Either would subjugate unicron :lol:

I am interested in seeing how they set up this grudge (maybe primus took the last pancake or he framed unicron for a crime he didn't commit)

That's assuming Primus actually exists at all, and Unicron isn't just some monster that inspired the myths of Primus and Unicron.

Becuase let's be real, the IDW Universe has gone to such great lengths to keep the myths and religion of Cybertron vague and unconfirmed that outright saying "Yes, Primus the all-powerful deity and creator of the Cybertronian race, really does exist" would be... kinda lame.

Ah but then who would unicron be getting revenge on unless...unicron here was actually megatronus but changed beyond all recognition. Sort of like how Mr sinister turned into Apocalypse in ultimate x men.

Has Megatronus/The Fallen even been in IDWverse?

Besides, this text more or less contradicts that trade description :???:

Transmission from Cybertron core:
Welcome.
Death.


Makes me a little skeptical of how valid the blurb actually is >:oP

We'll have a definitive answer soon enough but it would be nice to have issue 1 start filling in the blanks.

Megatronus and the other 13 are just regular robots. They don’t have Primus origins or connections to unicron. They were given their title by shockwave who traveled into the past and manipulated everything g

I see, thanks. So far the most interesting part of this Unicron is that Cybertron summoned him when it was in danger. Couple that with his first line "I hunger", really doesn't remotely suggest a quest for revenge. Unless they suddenly drop the ball and lean heavy into the naff Primus/Unicron angle.
I really hope this isn't the case, given how well they did at reinventing Overlord and Thunderwing.

It all hinges on backstory and as to how that particular alarm was created and by whom. My current thoughts is that it is a revenge story just not unicrons, and that there's a third player involved but this is all conjecture so I'll trust barber and co that they know what they're doing.

As long as he isn't Shockwave... again :roll:

The weekend brings us not, not two, but three previews for new comics from the Transformers universe (and what is left from the Hasbro Universe too, I suppose) of IDW Publishing comics!

Finally, we have our first preview for the first full issue of the ast mini-series in this narrative universe: Unicron #1 is here. Featuring writing by John Barber, art by Alex Milne and Sebastian Cheng, the pages below come directly from IDW. Check them out, and join the discussion in the Energon Pub!

The Darkest Hour has come. Optimus Prime stages a desperate gamble as the world-eater, Unicron, approaches Windblade’s homeworld—but that’s just the appetizer. The main course is Cybertron (with a side of Earth)… and it’s starting to look like no force in the galaxy can stop the end from coming.

So primus vs unicron it is though I was expecting more back story then that and I am wondering if there's more than what's being said. Also I thought they had no info on him...
