    Cool.

    Not really interested in the vehicles until Optimus Maximus comes out. Only one I'm actually interested in.

    Hrm, I suppose I may as well pick up a Commander Prime... I was holding off in hopes of an Ultra Magnus or a Scourge-themed redeco. Looks like those are definitely not happening.

    I've just managed to reserve myself one that is in stock at my local Argos for collection tonight - I wonder which it will be? :D

    I'm not so sure anymore. Knowing the way Hasbro has been dragging ass on everything lately we may not see these here until September or October.

    For some reason I thought this ship was called the Jackhammer, but I guess using star works better for copyright purposes.

    Cool find. I know my son is going to want that when it finds its way over here.

    Woop! Been waitin' on these.

    It is the Jackhammer in the show, but I guess Hasbro couldn't secure that name for the toy.

    Aaaah! Must... resist.... Cyberverse awesomeness!

    Seriously, I'm trying to resist the small scale after going a bit all-out during previous lines. These are testing my resolve!

    Edit: There'll be one in my Argos by the weekend. Resolve severely tested. :(

    Which one of these sets lets you plug the Cybervers Commanders into to light up?

    I noticed that too, and became disappointed...since that means the price here in the States will be 30 bucks (or more).

    I was hoping for 20 bucks, but unless this thing is HUGE...I can't warrant the higher price tag to purchase this. We'll have to wait and see, or I'll just wait for them to possibly be on clearance later.

    To convert British prices into US prices, it's normally a case of swapping the pound sign for a dollar sign. It will most probably be $20ish.

    This. The UK are shafted (UK expression... keeping it real! :D  ) for prices. £20 is usually $20. Over here, Voyagers are about £24 if that is a reference for pricing.

    Really? I thought the difference was 1.5 between the two?

    I'm glad to be wrong then, lol. :)

    For Hasbro, when they bring product across to the UK, they just change the currency sign. A $14 Deluxe is £14 over here. You are right that the exchange rate is about $1.50 = £1, but we get charged extra for...... no reason, I can see. (It's actually worse, and I don't want to derail this thread, but I know that there will be posts pointing out the difference in economy. This is true, but I did a quick study on TRU web sites a few months ago and found that most toys are 125% more expensive over in the UK, while Hasbro stuff is 150%-200% more expensive than the US.)

    they are $19.99 or $24.99 depending on store in the states.

    the current dpci for these are 087-06-0581, last i checked the scanner says $5.99, but its probably because they are not in yet, when I was previously checking they came up as $19.99.
