    $12.99 for Ultras? Hot damn, wonder if that will include their exclusive Ultras.

    Usually doesn't, but for half off I think it's worth the trip to TRU to find out. :)

    If they show Stormcloud in the ad, does that mean they'll have or eventually restock on Stormcloud?

    It's good news, except the TRU around haven't gotten any Ultras except Silverbolt/Onslaught/Powerglide.

    What's funny about the Universe Ultra's is they started out here in Canada at $40 a pop, I have yet to pay over $20 for one :lol  When I was in Japan I was picking up Henkei ultra's for $15 which was awesome :D 

    But I'll be damned I'm jealous about that movie Prime sale, I wish I could pick up one for that price, paid like $65 CAD for mine.

    They're likely getting rid of old stock. All they had when I went was Powerglide Dreadwind/g? and Silverbolt. The sale doesn't apply to Countdown as speculated.

    I took home my first Universe figure =D Powerglide.

    I just brought home a Countdown for $12.99 :thumb 

    I think you're right about TRU not intending to discount their exclusives with this sale. Problem for them is that their wording states "Transformers Universe Ultras" as being 50% off; both CD and DW have that exact wording on their package...all that distinguishes them from the others are their SKUs and the 25th anniversary/TRU exclusive labeling on their packaging.

    It appears to be confusing their employees as well; whoever stocked the discount kiosk at my local TRU tossed a couple Countdowns in there along with the others. It didn't ring up at the register as being on sale, however I brought up where I found it and mentioned that the packaging clearly stated it was a "Universe Ultra." They gave the me the discount manually.

    So yeah...it's not technically on sale, but your odds of you nabbing a Countdown or Dreadwind at a discount might actually might be pretty good.

    a

    You think they will still be in stock by Thurs/Friday, I picked up Inferno and Dreadwingfor %50, I argued for the TRU exclusive to be on sale.

    It was the only other ultra on the shelf with a ton of Powerglides, so he gave it to me for the price.

    Passed on Powerglide, but now I want to get him so I can have the red and white, if I find the exclusive, I also want to get Silverbolt just so when I get Skyfall I can have all 3 repaints.
