Default Do you think Unicron was lonely?

Out in space all alone?

Uni is the loneliest number.

Maybe that was why he tried to fill the emptiness with food.

Perhaps not eating people is the first step to making friends.

No kind of atmosphere. All alone, more or less.

I can't imagine he was that lonely. All those inhabitants were alive for quite a while before he digested them. Plus I can't imagine Mega/Galvatron was the first creature he'd ever warped to his will.

Pretend I made a huge digression here about the differences between isolation and solitude.

Even if he didn't eat everybody, it's not like he had any kind of peer group that would understand him. The only other robot the size of a planet doesn't just hate him, it created an entire race of beings that exist for the sole purpose of killing him.

It's just not a healthy environment for anyone, emotionally.

Imagine having a voice like Orson Well's or Leonard Nimoy's and not being able to talk to anyone. What a tragedy!

Mr. Owl,

How many years of floating in space does it take to get to the crazy-people-eating center of a Unicron?

LETS FIND OUT

I have figured out Unicron's real identity and the reason he's insane.



Look at his head! He's obviously an aged, time-displaced Bumblebee that fed himself moon-sized after millions of years of solitude.

The devouring itself is enough to fill a robot's heart. One must imagine Unicron happy.

Default MY TRANSCRIPTION OF THE LYRICS USES ALL CAPS AS APPROPRIATE.

I don't know if this Song is supposed to be "Unicron" or "Unicorn".



I mean, AJJ isn't exactly the sort of Band to name songs after Transformers, but then again the song's lyrics are well uh.
AND I'D LIKE TO BE A GIANT MACHINE
THAT CRUSHES THE MOUNTAINS AND BURNS ALL THE TREES
AND PEES IN THE DESERT AND DRIES UP THE SEAS
AND MELTS ALL THE ICE CAPS AND MAKES NATURE BLEED

Because I want nature to suffer
And I want nature to cry
And I want nature to SPIT IN MY MOUTH
and I want nature to die.

AND I WANT TO BE A BIG BALL OF MEAT
THAT BEES CAN BUZZ AROUND AND EAT.
AND FEAST ON MY LIVER AND ROT OUT MY TEETH
AND CHEW ON MY EYEBALLS UNTIL I'M DECEASED.

Because I deserve displeasure
And I really want to cry
And I think you should SPIT IN MY FACE
Because I am a werewolf.
