They're awesome and creepy, to be sure, but that plot summary sure makes you long for Unicron. Maybe he'll appear at the end of the sixth movie?

How the hell would they handle the size and scale of Unicron? He's the size of a flippin planet? Even if they DRASTICALLY reduced his size, he'd still be the largest "creature" ever put on film by like a factor of 10. I don't know if the technology exists to make him look anything but ridiculous.

As for the Dinobots, Bay has been on record as hating them. I think the Wreckers are the closest we'll ever get to them.
Marvel did own G.B. Blackrock, and even claimed ownership in their indicias in TF comics in the early 90's. Fast forward to today, and IDW freely uses the character in reprints and in new stories without any problems, while Circuit Breaker is still a roadblock due to being Marvel property.

Blackrock may also feel like a Tony Stark rip off if not handled well.

Unicron would be a very ambitious move on their part.

Or it could mean that Galvatron will be created along with The Sweeps and Cyclonus. We'll see. The physics of the whole thing are ridiculous in scale.

This thing could be completely insane.

Galvatron, Cyclonus, and the Sweeps. Unicron shows up in the solar system and eats Mars. Heads toward Earth. Autobots and Dinobots team up to battle Galvatron and his minions. Unicron transforms into robot mode above Earth. Autobots have to open the Matrix and blow the shit out of him.

That just blew my mind. I always thought that song was made for Boogie Nights.

Nope. It was actually an anachronism in that movie. But the director liked the song so much that he insisted on using it.

No, it's an anachronism since Boogie Nights is set in the 70's.

True, but that scene where Diggler is singing The Touch was already the 80's.

They should bust that song out in the middle of the movie somewhere (In a heroic moment, not on Bumblebees's radio). I'd love it.

OK, well, the movie still ends in 1984, well before the Transformers movie in 1986.

That and Dare would make for great heroic music.

Here's how it was used in the animated movie:

Mark Wahlberg is going to be in Transformers IV, so he can sing the song in it if they open the Matrix.

I really loved Dare in the animated movie. Makes me want to watch it again.

I have the Blu-ray import of the film. I always get chills when Unicron says "WELCOOOOOOOME MEGATROOOOON."


Megatron: And?

Unicron: And NOTHING! You belong to me now.

Wow, I didn't realize the DVD is going for so much right now. It's like $90-100 from resellers on Amazon.

I didn't notice the UK version of the Blu-ray was OOP as well. It's region free, too.

Which DVD? The old fullscreen one by Rhino or the 2-disc (widescreen and fullscreen) reissue by Sony. Cos I have both.

Never got around to getting the BD.

I actually have it, it's one of the few OOP DVDs I have. Along with my Criterion disc of Ran, it's one of my prized possessions. Which is kind of sad .

Like they did with Galactus, who is very similiar, in Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer? The Bayformers aesthetic requires so many moving pieces on the robot designs that I'd surprised if it would even be possible for ILM to do that, even with today's tech.
