    And look, they\'re only a little bit more expensive than what a voyager costed not long ago. What a steal. I sure love being British.

    As always the absurd British prices deter me from buying them at retail and actually supporting the nation's toy market.

    I saw TLK Grimlock in Hamley's the other day for £50 (that's $68, my American buddies), I feel bad for any parents who pay these sorts of prices on a whim.

    And just for the sake of completeness:
    The packaging is EU stock, so we're not dealing with an overseas import here.

    Actually more like £14.80 at current rates, but then that doesn't include tax.

    Where the uk gets screwed again by paying 20% tax while the USA pay between 0% and 7.25% (I'm not counting puerto rico)


    So technically £5 of that £24.99 is Sales Tax, which makes it £14.80 in the USA vs £19.99 in the UK, plus tax.

    Probably worth noting that Toy Planet is the shop that's charging £19.99 for POTP deluxes while they're selling for £16.99 in Smyth's, so I wouldn't put much stock in that price tag. Probably £19.99 in sensible shops, in the standard $=£ switch we're all familiar with.

    Still too much. Movie toys are making generations figures look like bargains.

    Jesus the prices, I'm sure around Cybertron time a deluxe was about 7-9 quid.

    Yes and a pint was £2.20 - £2.60 back then. Everything has gone up in price.
