    hasbro should have released unicron packaged with ironhides, sideswipes, and bluestreak... then that would have made it hard to pass up, since those 3 haven't been released yet. haha.

    I'll probably buy one to keep in planet mode. I don't think I've transformed the one I have now since the day I got him.

    Hate on Toys 'R Us for not having it repainted. As a store exclusive it is totally under their purview to request those types of changes.

    Yeah. Technically, with inflation, its cheaper now as 2003 money was worth more than 2008 money.

    I do remember these being "shelf warmers" at TRU the first time around. They were always at full price. I don't remember TRU ever put them on clearance. It's a great buy for ones who missed out the first time. But I think this one will also be a "shelf warmers." But I have been wrong before.

    Yeah like many along with me , I passed up the first time I seen in the stores and now that I have the funds to splurge I will be grabbing him and painting him.

    I wonder how this will effect the ebay sellers that sell Unicron still. The ones that are incomplete are pretty much worthless for the time being unless you are planning on kitbashing or need replacement parts. But for that matter you might as well buy a brand spanking new one. As for the complete ones they may get bought or bid on if the price is lower than the retailed new ones. Ohh the woes of re-releasing.

    I kind of hope it is so they'll go on discount or clearance eventually. I have an Armada Unicron and it's in excellent condition, but I wouldn't mind picking up an extra...just not at full price.

    Seriously. These were on the shelf at TRU forever, it seemed. I can't believe they wanted this figure again, this time as an exclusive.

    They'll still be at TRU when Transformers 3 is in theaters.
