    I'm not up to date on the UK sightings, but I'm assuming this is a first?

    Hmm, well, I didn't see any at TRU Reading or Oxford when I was out at the weekend. I'll have to keep an eye out.

    Basically, double it and you'll get the price in dollars. The exchange rate's something like 1.85 at the moment...

    It says right under the poster's name that he is based in the UK. Also, he even says in the third post that he is based in the UK.

    well, 30 quid isn't so shocking, the MF retails at $100 here in New Zealand, and it's roughly three pounds to a NZ dollar, so it'd equal about the same price, like hell am I buying it though.

    You may find £30 a bit harsh, but when you consider your getting 2 Voyager sized figures that combine for that price It ain't that bad really

    An otherwise good plan...if not for the unfortunate fact that Hasbro sending this atrocity to the UK before the US is actually further proof that they hate you. ;)
