    w00t! I'll buy it, though it would be hilarious if the picture on the site was what were actually getting!

    EDIT: Wtf? Its $20 in US, how come its £29.99 over here, what happened to Hasbro's $1=£1 eh?

    £29.99. If this price is true, then Hasbro UK will have outdone themselves in the "let's bend over the Brits" stakes.

    How dare you not suffer with your fellow countrymen!

    I'm guessing the reason for the stupidly higher price is because there's no price break like there was with Target. With the two-pack, Target was selling $30 worth of Classics for $20. I'm guessing Woolworths didn't have the ability - or will - to sell them for so cheaply, assuming they're exclusives and not that this this is the first place to list them.

    More like the US got this one on the cheap. Given that a dlx is £10 & voyager is £20 then £30 is a good price for it.

    Actually if you run the £29.99 through the currency exchange it comes out to about $58.00, which means if you wanted to pay the 19.99 we paid for it in the US it would translate to about £10.00.

    I mean it really looks like Hasbrro is just raping you poor Brits....

    hmmm, good thing its sold here in Australia for $45.00, which is equivalent to 1 Classic Prime - 2 figures for the price of just one.. not bad Target! I got the 2 pack for Skywarp- really cool recolor IMO especially jetmode. Still warming up on UM.

    Considering that it would make it close to THREE times the U.S. price as opposed to the 'usual' 2X or so times the U.S. price i'm inclined to agree.

    Not considering how much it is in the US, no. It's a terrible price.

    Feh, I can think of a ton of other TF stuff I'd rather spend £30 on.

    On the plus side, given that TF's aren't exactly massive in the UK, it'll end up in the bargain bin soon enough.

    Wow, really? You guys are happy to pay $AUD75 (30 pounds) for something is is $AUD44.95 (same price as classics voyager, so basically it's skywarp for free), retail here? Wow.

    Whoa! You sure bent over and took that one. Holy. Shit.

    and the reason for this is that they are expensive for most children, £10 is about two weeks pocket money (that's equivilent to $20 us ro0ughly)

    i'm glad this is coming. but i will not get it for that price
