    Apologies if this has been covered elsewhere, but my rudimentary search of the forum in a few moments stolen from work can't find it if it has. ;-)

    But, I'm a little slow on the uptake, and have just noticed that Argos in the UK has some end-of-catalog Transformers clearance items at the moment. What did take my notice, though, was that the movie leader Prime is only a penny short of fifteen quid. Now I've already got him, but what I was wondering was if anyone knew whether or not Argos have somehow ended up with the premium version of Prime (or whatever the one with the blade-arm was - I've lost track to be honest :)  ). Stranger things have happened... So if anyone has a clue whether I should risk my clearly-not-hard-earned on it, I'd be most grateful. :)

    I doubt it. And Leaders are £15 now? I might just see if they have a Leader Megs kicking about mine. I saw the Voyager Prime and '08 CamaroBee set for £15 too.

    Ask for a viewing and you can check for a sword on the Leader yourself. :)

    Ah, no, sadly Leader Megs is still thirty quid. Quite why they think people would pay more for that mis-shapen lump of plastic than for Prime is quite beyond me...

    Bum. Even at £15 it's still a stretch being worth it or not.

    Does this cover Nightwatch Prime too?

    well, if its a premium series prime, it should say so in the listing...instead of movie leader OP, it'd say premium movie leader OP etc....
