    Hmm, FP were the first who had Euro-box Swindle...

    Though the question is whether those will be imports in US packaging or come in Euro packaging.

    EDIT: I like how they use Smokescreen's mistransformed robot mode from Amazon.com.

    That Smokescreen is amusingly mistransformed. He looks like a dwarf alternator.

    £21.99? Thats a phenomenally small mark up for FP. My local store still has the TFC Perceptor reissue for a bargain basment £65, thats virtually double everywhere else. They were also selling Armada Prime for £60 when the toy had long been on under £10 clearance everywhere else.

    Well, if they're selling Optimus that cheap that soon, then I know where I'm getting myself an Op!

    Wow. That's a horrifically low price for FP. This is the shop who wanted over £100 for the God Ginrai reissue, in a damaged box. At least I will have somewhere to get Alt Prime at a decent price. Thanks for the heads-up d00d :)

    well if they can get them before ebay at that price I'm in, unfortunatley the only FP thats local to me isn't an FPinternational so it'll have to be online.

    Ebay:
    Do remember this in the online price.
    It'll probably be double that when it's in store.

    Have you tried Worlds Apart in town? Sometimes they have Alts priced in the low 20's (most high 20's though).
