    So, I was gone last week. (The week the movie came out) and for months I've been waiting for TRU to put him on clearence. Well they did and I missed it. He was 29.99 this last week and still is priced where they have him. Its just there's no other TRU's near me. I'm hoping to pick him up, so anyone wanna help me out?

    I feel your pain, my local TRU had Unicron for a while. When I had enough money to get him someone else bought him.:mad

    you think 29.99 is a good price... you should have seen them when they were going for 10 bucks at target... but that was way back when.

    He's still $49.99 here locally. Is TRU clearance nationwide? Or is it Store by Store?

    From what it seems, it's store by store.

    My TRU had a bunch for a long time at 49.99. Then suddenly they were gone. Not sure if they put them on clearance or what. I had already bought mine at regular price.

    i freaked because i was waiting for it to go down in price, then one day it all disappeared. so i had a friend pick me one up from a different store at retail, 49.99. i guess these clearance prices are store by store. i dunno

    I'm pretty sure they are store to store. My local TRU has had the same 5 Unicron's at $49.99 since they came out and they seem to have little interest in clearing them out.

    Hmmm...I might have to get him with the whole $30 purchase $10 gift card thing that TRU has going on right now...cuz who knows when it will go on clearance if it's only certain stores right now.

    Mine still has a bunch in stock. Unless someone can get it for $20-$25, you might as well have just bought it in your store. With the size of the box & weight, it would end up being $50 or really close.

    You said Target had them? I thought it was a TRU Exclusive. Anyway, I bought mine at regular price last year. But I have not seen anymore at my TRU in a long time.

    Everyone's buying them up for custom Gesalt parts (Devastator, Menasor, Predaking...). Poor, sad Unicron. Nothing but piles and piles of legs and heads left that no one wants.

    Seriously though, the TrU I frequent has had the same five there since I bought mine a few months back, still at full retail.
