As we heard back at San Diego Comic Con 2017, the Hasbro Universe of IDW Publishing's comics is going to include big Transformers antagonist Unicron as of 2018, both part of the existing universe and as a 'solo' book of sorts . At this weekend's Hascon, we also got a teaser of the big bad, in planet-eating planet form, during a panel with Chris Ryall - check out the image below, and the snippet describing some more behind the inclusion of the character!

I made this new thread to keep all Unicron information in going forward, given that he will also get a solo series and whatnot!

Information we have so far can be found here:

Does anyone else notice who's standing to the right of Optimus? I may be wrong but it looks like Bumblebee!

Well, I guess they had to bring him back eventually. It was a good... *looks at watch* 4 years while it lasted, though.

I had been looking forward to this event in the comics for a while, but having to wade through or totally avoid all these unnecessary crossovers, combined with the steadily declining quality of the TF stories, it might not even be worth it, especially if James Roberts has anything to do with the story.

Given the kibble - and marketing reasons - probably Arcee.

Yes because Bumblebee was so poorly handled, poorly written, no character development, no real story development in the slightest. Oh wait that's been rodimus for the passed 5 years of IDW where we've had 3 or 4 occurrences where he's said "it's time to get serious, I need to be better" and then he sees a lightning bug and forgets everything he just said and starts chasing it.

I'm not diggin the new look for the big U. He's all rocky and stuff, and what's with the asteroids for his ring? I always thought that was like his warp drive or somethin, the way it powers up in the movie after he ate Lithone.

It's one picture. There's no context at all.

Yeah just judge that book by that cover. Ignorance is bliss and everything needs to be just like it was 30 years ago.

Man, who peed in your cheerios? I said I didn't like the LOOK, as in the APPEARANCE. I never said nuthin about the story. Chill, bro!

I was mildly interested until he mentioned that Mask, GI Joe, Rom, and all the other crap was going to be involved in this Unicron story as well. And did anyone notice the very painful silence after he tried to get everyone excited for it?

A long awaited IDW Unicron story? Sure, h3ll yeah!

.....A Unicron story that continues to shoe horn in Hasbro's other struggling franchises instead keeping the focus on actual TRANSFORMERS?


NOPE!

'Painful' is the right word. Yeesht...

To be honest the APPEARANCE looks like Planet EGO had a child by DOOMSDAY.

Too organic...


And I don't really care what the story is about if G.I.Joe, Rom and Mask have a part in what should be Galactic battle with no Earth restraints.

Have Arcee team up with Shipwreck and Rom to stop Cobra's Weather Dominator in one of THEIR comics!

Fingers crossed that it's Sunstreaker since this Unicron hint comes at the end of First Strike.

OR....They could make a cover that reluctant readers actually like! How about that???! This Rocky looking Unicron reminds me of TF: Prime's version. I hated that lazy interpenetration of him that Bay seems to be following as well. And there's no good reason for it in the IDW-verse.

There's also no "ignorance" when you've been seen IDW crap the bed with majority of their crossover events in the first place! And this forced Hasbro-verse is not helping things in slightest either! So spare us the lame manipulation of "read it first" when common sense tells us otherwise!
