Rosebud as the name of the minicon would not be cool.

If they didn't have a white repaint of Megatron called Galvatron that is what I would call his minicon and since both Galvatron and Cyclonus are already taken my idea for TF Armada Unicorn's minicon should be Scourge

Yeah I see the Mini-con attached to him now. His Mini-con turning into a moon is so cool. How big is he in relation to Fort Max?

Just over half the size of Fort Max... I believe Unicron is a reported 13" [presuming that the Minicon is standard size], while Max is 22".

He should be the biggest TF ever.

Then he'd cost ~$100, be ordered by bugger all stores, become a TRU exclusive, be prey for the scalpers, go on ebay for twice that and there'd be no way he got outside of America.

Uh... then Fort Max should have been smaller in the first place.

Yes, I agree, whether you meant it as a joke or otherwise... in fact, I think there's a smaller bootleg around... Max should be around the same size as Scorponok; Fort isn't as detailed as the size of his mould should dictate...

So how tall is Scorpy anyway? Will the Unicron toy be shorter or taller?

Scorponok's about the same size as Metroplex....

or a modern equivalent - Omega Prime - but wider.

Some people are saying he'll be 13 inches tall, others say 16 inches. So I'd say 13-16 for now.

All in all he's cool. Not sure I like the purple too much but its Unicron. He could be colored like the G2 Protectobot prototypes and I'd still buy him

TFW2005 has came up with the scans of the ToyFare articles on Unicron, as
follows:

http://2005boards.com/attachment.php?s=&postid=53878

http://2005boards.com/attachment.php?s=&postid=53882

Juicy info from the same guy:

- The Mini-Con's name is Nebulon

- The Star Saber can be put on Unicron's back to activate the chest missile

- Plenty of space in the stomach and legs for Mini-Con storage @ 'Transport
mode'

- 24 Mini-Cons pegs instead of 26

- Possibly "The Unicron Battles" as a sub-name under the Armada packaging, like
'Scramble City' under the G1 Season 3 Japanese packaging

- Unicron will be packaged in robot mode.

- Light-up action for both the eyes and the right.

Well judging from that picture of him standing next to Armada Prime he would have to be around 16 inches tall cause prime is 12 inches tall and Unicron is quite a bit larger, unless that is just an edited pic and hes not really standing next to prime.

Unicron looks good. I hope it's as big as Fort Max though.

Nah, he's only gonna be about half the size. He's 16 inches tall, and Ft Max is about 30 inches tall.
