    A post on SGCollect.com has confirmed that the Universe Unicron has been released at TRU in Singapore:

    It does not look like any changes have been made from the original boxed sample we saw ages back.

    Thanks to Automorpher for the heads up.

    Interesting. Might drop by later for a look. Though i'm more concerned about other new stuff compared to Unicron.

    Why did I think that the black repaint was the one getting re-released? Drat.

    No one toy line can contain armada unicron. The unkillable toy god.

    Dude, no doubt. I'm usually pretty pro-Hasbro but releasing him AGAIN with no paint changes is just horseshit laziness. The only possible good this does is make him available to those who missed him first time around. Although the new box art looks pretty awesome, it in no way justifies buying this mofo all over again.

    That's the million dollar question. I would like to think they would, but then again...

    Wow, now we don't complain so much about repaints they don't even bother with the new paint!

    Shame it's just a repackage, but ah well, makes it easier not to buy.

    Well I'm in the camp of those who never got one first time around, so yay! but I totally agree that it's laziness on not getting a repaint.

    No new paint job?! Crud. If it had been released with a new paint job more reminiscent of the '86 movie, and released in Canada ('cuz there's no news as of yet) I'd probably have gotten one and scrapped the original Armada version that's on the top shelf of my computer desk. As it is, it's a total pass for me.

    I pretty much assumed there would be no paint changes when the boxart was shown to be the same colors as Armada Uni.

    Hahahaha.

    As a "USA Edition"? Hasbro toy in Hasbro packaging with an EXCLUSIVE Japanese sticker on the box that warrants paying twice the price?

    Methinks that's EXACTLY why they're doing it.

    Did anyone complain that "Classics" Soundwave, Ravage and Laserbeak were not repainted? Nooo, some people even complained that he had the retooled Soundblaster door.
