    The guys over in the sightings thread suggested I report this, so blame them if it's not news.

    But today I bought Voyager Optimus Prime in Edinburgh's Forbidden Planet, for £19.99

    Its just a quick camera-phone pic as I don't have my camera at work, and the box won't be in 1 piece by the time I get home.

    It's the Multi-Lingual box as per the usual European releases.

    Forbidden Planet International's prices are standard I find, its the stores that are just Forbidden Planet that have the higher prices.

    Has it actually been released in the UK, though? I'm surprised it's even a Euro box, but in my experience FP mostly just deal in imports, so presumably it's been brought in from the Continent. Vayager Prime's what, wave 3? I don't think he's due out officially for a while.

    Yea, they're 2 different companies.
    The store in London is owned by Forbidden Planet, and tends to be a bit more expensive.
    The store in Edinburgh is Forbidden Planet International.

    Prime was wave 2 I'm sure.

    The Edinburgh store doesn't tend to import things which are readily avaliable in the UK, so its just likely that they've got their orders in early.

    Yeah Forbidden Planet is the one that tends to deal more with imports, FP International gets things as they come to the UK.

    This is great news for me though, as the store in Cardiff is an International, so I may have to pay another visit soon.

    Edinburgh only got the wave 1 figures in last week, so I was supprised to see Prime there. Needless to say he was in my hands in seconds.

    That's odd, 'cause I'm sure the Nottingham branch is an International, and it's always imports there. That's where I got my Classics Mirage and Cliffjumper, as well as my Galaxy Force Megazarak and BT Hound.
