    I ended up finally getting TRU Unicron, and i am glad i did. This is a solid toy, and had a lot of play value. Just curious how many people out there have him.

    I don't own TFU Unicron, but I own Armada Unicron (same thing; really). And my Unicron is certainly one of my fav Transformers ever.

    Missed the original release and picked up the TrU version. I like it a lot. It's a solid figure that looks great on the shelf. I also like randomly posing him holding stuff. He's currently holding a Mountain Dew can.

    I got him in pieces on the bay and junkion, so's he only cost about 18 total, and i'm glad i got him.. but i'm not sure i'd justify to myself to pay full price for him. Still really cool figure though.

    I've actually got two Armada Unicrons and one Energon version. This figure is truly amazing and worth every penny spent!

    My son actually found the energon version in a yard sale box at my mothers house, he must have been my nephew's. He was missing his ring and "wings".
    And I thouht there was something wrong with his paint, because of the green on his horns on his left side only . Anyways that's what inspired me to get a complete one at TRU. So now I'll probably spend some time getting a replament ring and "wings" for the energon version for my son.

    Who remembers the craze of people trying to find Armada Unicron the first month he was out?

    I haunted 24-hour Wal-Marts trying to find him. I think I got him about 5 days after the first reports hit. Bought him at 2 AM in a Super Wal-Mart where I was behind a clique of obviously drunk frat-guys and party girls.

    They weren't rude or anything, just in drunken awe of 'That Huge F'n Transformer'.

    I bought Universe Unicron, having missed out on the Armada one (that was around the time I stopped getting Transformers for a while). It was definitely worth it. It's a really cool, imposing toy, and having a Unicron Transformer that actually looks pretty close to the one in TFTM is great.

    Got two Armada Unicrons when they were clearanced at Target for $13 ea.

    When I saw there was going to be a rerelease of the same figure in Universe 2.0, I simply moved one of them from my Armada bin to my Universe 2.0 bin.

    Ta-da! :lol

    I bought it when it was originally released and I still think it's an awesome toy.

    I want to get one to bolster my Henkei/Classics Decepticons, who are vastly outnumbered by the Autobots.

    But I don't want to spend the $50 since its inevitable that TRU will clearance'd him.

    I got the energon one for >I think< 25 bucks from amazon a few years ago. Love it to pieces. Scares the cats, and makes the baby laugh.
