    Yesterday I was at ToysRUs store (Canada), and saw a very strange 25th Unicron on the shelf. It's Armada/Universe Unicron in the 25th year's package. As shown below:

    How did this happen? I bought it anyway.

    That's amazing :lol 

    I'd be pissed if I just grabbed one in a hurry and didn't realize it was the Armada one though :eek:

    :lol  it's the ol' swapero. Someone bought the new unicron, put the old one in the box and returned it. If you look carefully you'll see a bunch of twist ties missing from the Armada one. At least it's the same toy... just not the same deco.

    Looks like a repackaged and returned Armada/Universe Unicron. Not a mistake but a underhanded and deceitful way to get the newer and arguably better 25th Anniversary Unicron for no extra cost.

    So... Is it the ol' switcharoo or the ol' swapero.. I'm confused now :D
