    Better than £80, which is what they're asking over here! Typical "just change the currency symbol" pricing, as per..

    Oh, finally.

    Anyway, I hope that price is a joke. Because it's comical.

    This isn't to far from me too bad I'm not dropping 80$ bucks on this.

    No, that's the price alright. Prices of the TLK toys are jacked up this time for an unknown reason while toys of the Generations and RID of the same size class are not changed.

    For countries like where I come from, this means the toys aren't going to be affordable for an average person. Will grab the New-Mold Deluxe Bumblebee and Voyager Megatron if available. That's about it. But worryingly, we don't usually see any past Wave 1.

    $80 bucks is higher than I was expecting for this. The pricing on the movie line items are raised for reasons I'd love to know. I wish I could remember what movie 1 Optimus helmet cost off the top of my head, but I know it wasn't eighty dollars.

    It's gonna be a lean time for me with the Movie stuff, thankfully. Voyager Scorn, Leader Megs, and maybe that First Knight dragon deluxe guy. Then it's just waiting and saving for Trypticon and the Gen and Legends stuff to get rolling again.

    This is a speciality store, so the prices would be higher than Walmart or Target or other discount stores.  It\'s probably $20 cheaper at the discount stores.

    To be fair, $80 US doesn't include any taxes and such. Your £80 includes all VAT, import taxes and such, which is around 20-30% all said and done, so it all works out again.

    In Canada, it's $130 Canadian, close to US$90-100. And that's BEFORE taxes. (I'm surprised. I saw it at my TRU for weeks now - I assumed it was already out).
