    Yeah, I remember when Energon Unicron was released at the beginning of the series, but you couldn't find one in his green and black colors...

    Hasbro stated at that year's Botcon was that the packaging was all ready to go, but the repainted figures still weren't completely done on the assembly line (problems they had with a lot of size classes at the launch of Energon) so they took some unpackaged leftovers from Armada and threw them in the Energon packages.

    Some unpackaged leftovers?? Practically every store I went to there were at least 4 Orange Unicrons for every Black & Green Unicron. It was like EVERY TRU I went into had at least 20+ Armada Unicrons left over at the end of the line.

    Seeing what they're going for on the evil bay, I'm kind of kicking myself for not picking up an extra black & green repaint.
