    699 norwegian krones for the leader figures. Its almost 120 dollars!!:S 60 bucks for the Voyager class and 34 for the Deluxes! Fucking money vampires! sucking the greens out of not knowing TF fans! Ill be buying them from amazon.co.uk for half a price! aprox 50-60 dollars for the leaders, 30-40 for the voyagers and 8 lousy quid for the deluxes!

    prices is just as bad in Sweden. What do u expect. Import fees, and the 25% tax on the items we have in Sweden ( dunno about Norway ) makes the buy in price alot expensiv. Then the store have to make money to..= high price.

    And some collectors in Asia complain about the prices we pay...seriously, fans in Sweden and Norway should import the toys from countries that have them cheaper.

    ...but those Roadbots are about $30. I suspect it's not just the Norwegian Taxation system, but someone taking advantage as well.

    Makes the prices we pay in the UK seem well thought out and fair. Are you sure there's not been some sort of store error?

    Ouch, these prices were just evil!

    Maybe Megatron got his hands at these prices!

    Damn, i was complaining about the low availability here in Germany, but these prices are just worse!


    Well, at least, I found my Cybertron Ultra-Class Wing Saber just in the past night on eBay for 29,99€(~39,96$) and only 5,90€(~7,86$) delivery-costs in MINT(for figure itself), MIB or MISB(On picture, it looked MIB up to MISB, but that could have just been googled).

    Well, gotta lookout for the Movie_Leader Prime next Month, hope i'll get one then but WingSaber had priority, due to the fact, i was searching for some Months(seems like it never arrived at the "lonely-selling-these-toys"-store around my area, sigh).

    Why are there some Roadbots sneaked between the Transformers?
    They're just a Transformers-Imitation!

    no way man. cause I asked them and they checked with the docs:S I even talked to the store manager. he said there is nothing he could do for its the countries high taxes and rates that fucks everything around. Seriously our dvd's here cost up to 20-25 punds (new ones) 45-50 dollars. and the old ones will not go lower then 99 krones=10 punds=16 dollars. That is fo rthe usual dvd's. HD or Blue Ray is even higher. That is how it is in Norway. everything is extremely priced:S Thanks god im moving to UK in 3 months!:p

    For those prices, I'd expect them to transform themselves....

    Maybe these figures can, by pushing a button it transforms and carries the packaging along the money to the till for you :lol 

    Seriously you need to enquire about this, drag that manager off his fat ass (sipping coffee eating donuts) and show him this. If he says this is the correct price give him a :stick:  and run off with the transformer goodness.
