    I have seen this set at hazel grove sainsburys for £26.99 today. Not sure if this has been released anywhere other than the UK yet.

    For 2 scouts, a Legend and a few of the figures from the old screen packs? That's... a bit pricey. :(

    I agree. It looks a nice set. But no way can i justify that price.
    Overpriced like the other sainsburys exclusive scout 3 pack which is gathering dust in most stores I have been to.

    I've never seen that set before, it looks interesting, but I can't justify 30 quid for it, maybe when it gets a bit cheaper

    I'm kind of digging this. Not even sure why, as I own two of the molds. But something about how successfully this pulls off my favorite scene from the movie, plus the incredibly military-looking Autobots.

    That price is crazy, so crazy that I almost hope some idiot just stuck a pound sign in front of the dollar price. Even that in USD is slightly steep. Although its' still in "impulse buy" range...damn it just WHAT do I like so much about this set?

    I don't think it's a nice set. They look like they got splattered with pigeon shit.

    grimlock for 60... that's alot more reasonable than the 180 they're charging for the one they have at forbidden planet

    Shouldn't this be priced at right around $20?
    ($8x2)+$5=$21
    I was really looking forward to this set. Hopefully it'll be more reasonably priced in the US.

    I like the Dune Runner mould but I'll wait for this pack to come down in price for Christmas first.

    I'll probably just wait for it to go down in price. But then I've already got those molds (apart from the human figures) so even at half-price I'd still be umming and ahhing over if it was a good deal or not.
    That's pretty much how all our Transformers get priced over here. Actual exchange rates seem to go out of the window in favour of the easy $/£ sign swap. Sometimes I've had people just mail me figures from America and it's still worked out cheaper paying their store price and mailing it here than me buying an official UK release.
