    Reveal the shield legends at Intertoys. For only 4 euros a piece!
    6 different ones. Optimus Prime, Megatron, Prowl, Starscream, Gold Bumblebee and Trailcutter. The latter better known as Trailbreaker.
    Great transformations for such small figures. Gold Bumblebee isn't as recognizable as the others. But I got the other five.
    Very cool additions.

    What's a good store for TF shopping in the NL?

    Hi fellow dutchmen/women ;-)

    couple of questions:

    1) Is there a good shop in the NL where they sell a lot of transformers?

    2) Which figure is the best optimus prime? ROTF leader class Optimus? It's on amazon for 92 and 46 dollars (I don't really understand the difference in costs/figure) ... or ultimate optimus?

    kind regards

    Richard

    2) Depends on your personal taste

    The most detailed version of movie Prime would be the ROTF leader. If you're willing to splurge I highly recommend ROTF Buster Optimus, which has a gorgeous paint-job.
    Oh and $92.95 is too much for a regular ROTF leader, go check out eBay or probably even marktplaats.

    Thanx!

    I've checked eBay and marktplaats but without any luck. What would be a normal price for a brand-new figure?

    Are there any differences between Buster and normal Leader Class ROTF Prime besides the paint job?

    The best one in my opinion is the ROTF Buster Prime + Jetfire set. Now also availeble as DOTM set at Robotkingdom.

    The set is gorgeous, but very expensive.

    I just came back from New York City where Ultimate Optimusses were sold for $92,95. In Holland the're up to 150 euro's I guess??

    Hi Antoine,

    I've visited all major toy stores in Eindhoven, but without any luck. Which retail stores do you mean? Could you provide me with a hint/link?

    Kind regards

    I just checked Robotkingdom but I couldn't find that set, probably sold out. I found it on another website (toyarena) for an astonishing 399, wow!!!! The sole Buster Prime figure is around 195 euro's, which is also too expensive for my taste, so a leader ROTF prime will do ;-). Hoping that Antoine can pinpoint towards one of those 40 euro ROTF leader primes ;-)

    (I also checked a review of Ultimate Optimus, but the figure is less detailed)

    Hey there!

    I am not sure if this is still important, since there hasn't been a transformers sighting in the netherlands for a long time, but I just spotted the further waves of the transformers prime robots in disguise toyline in my local intertoys. I think it is wave 3 or 4. Anyway I was pretty suprised when I saw these figures. No beast hunters yet unfortunatly. I know the netherlands are really bad when it comes up to transformers toys, but I just want to let you all know, that there are still transformers at dutch retail

    Hey all,

    My business sent me to Rotterdam, and I am having a great time. I am just wondering, is there any good TF shop I should check out.

    Thanks!

    As an inhabitant of the city, I have say I'm afraid not. No specialty shops here I can think of. Just the regular toy shops like Bart Smit, Intertoys, etc. in Rotterdam. And for the new pricing they've started, I wouldn't recommend those.

    They're the two main Dutch toyshop chains.

    Sorry for reviving this post after such a long time of it being inactive, but I didn't know where else to post this.

    Combiner Wars Wave 3 Voyagers @ ToysXL in Breda, Noord-Brabant:

    Intertoys Venlo start selling Titans Return

    Wave 1 all 4 figures 21.99 each.

    So they will skip combiner wars wave 5 and 6 because there plenty of wave 4 Deluxe figures 26.99 each.

    Any officieel word on wave 6 in europe? Wave 5 i have seen in the German shops but no 6
