    This is why I'm planning on getting the movie toys when I go to Botcon; I refuse outright to pay the ludicrous prices Hasbro UK seem to think we should pay.

    Haha. I agree 100%. Some times I really hate the fact that I live in the UK.

    You'll find a better deal from June 2nd onwards. Hasbro only lifted the street date on the delxues, and the lack of Leader Class Primes and Megatrons available at around retail price reflects that.

    Yup, that's the long and short of it. Only a few people have their grubby little mitts on the movie toys, and the prices reflect that.

    its pisses me off that companies seem to think that charging the same pounds as dollars is a good deal for uk buyers!!
    same with xboz 360 and ps3 we pay the same in £ as you do in dollars! so basically at the current exchange rate we pay double for everything! good ol blighty

    The PS3 and 360 are pegged against the Euro and then the price is converted back to GBP. Whilst it's still extra, it's not as big a difference as with TFs

    the prices you're seeing are still high because he's not fully released yet. Wait a couple of weeks and you'll find him for just above US retail on ebay (that ships to you).

    When he came out in Canadian Zellers a few weeks ago, people here were selling him on ebay to American buyers for over $100 US!

    EDIT: In other words, what godsendsdeath said ^^

    Oh, it goes both ways. Do you know how much it would cost me to get a bag of jelly babies here in the US?

    OK, tell you what then: I'll buy you $40 worth of Jelly babies, and you buy me a Leader Prime when he's released. ;)

    Y'know, if this was the winter, I'd probably take you up on that... Summer months, that candy will arrive as molten goo!
