    ...and an American box to boot.

    How much was it?


    If you could take time to post a review in the feedback forum, i'm sure people would be most interested to hear what you think of it.

    Sadly I'm an MISB guy... so I'll never get to know. Especially for that price! ;)

    Every time someone in the US moans about Hasbro, I intend to link them to that. Good GOD. Absolute, definite pass with extreme prejudice, right there.

    I saw them putting this badboy out on the shelves in Nottingham last week, sadly £80 is definatly way to steep, £40 is usually my limit unless it's somehting i really want.

    Dude, for that much money I'd rip it out of the box and demand it make me breakfast.

    I saw one of those things in my local TRU this morning, althougth I didn't notice that it was 80 notes.

    I was thinking of getting a set of movie toys since they look pretty good, but I was put off when I realised that it'd cost me over 200 for the lot. Just goes to show how out of touch with current UK TF pricing I am, the last thing I brought off the shelf before buying an Alternator Shockwave today was the G2 Dreadwing repaint that was around a few years ago.

    For that ammount of money I'd expect it to rip itself out of the box and make me breakfast.

    £80? Pass.

    Surprisingly I saw some movie toys in my local Sainsburrys (which don't carry anything like this)
    Only had deluxes and they were slightly cheaper than Toys R Us

    UK pricings are very much evil. :( 

    Though I reserve the right to whinge about Canadian pricings being based on an incredibly outdated ripoff exchange rate!...

    What's the conversion of that price into US currency?

    I know he's fucking expensive here stateside so a comparison of price would be interesting.

    Either way, he's a fucking ripoff IMO..I can't find a single thing to justify purchasing him (personally).
