    Eighty bob? Surely you can do better than that, son. I saw him being sold for £30 at Auto Assembly.

    There's several of them on eBay right now for a lot less than that.

    And IMO, the toy is an amorphous blbg. Lugnut with none of the charm.

    That's still a tough call. A lot of money for something you might be able to get elsewhere. What are other sources asking for it?

    I think you can still do a bit better if you wait for an auction to end, rather than than a BIN.


    And really, the toy is a grey amorphous blob. Better ways to spend the cash, so unless you're determined to complete the line, i'd say skip it.

    You can find currency converters online, just use your Google reflex.

    IMHO, he's a very solid and fun toy. Looks great with Voyager Lugnut and Legends Animated Prime.

    Yea I have heard from people it is one of the last and best figures of prime so this is what gets me to want it as at the moment blurr and grimlock are my favourites but I hardly have any decepticons
