    There doesn't seem to be a limit on the amount you can order, is there?

    Did he just use the 1 yellow gun in the cartoons? Maybe that why we don't see the black gun with the new toy.

    Nice! Just put in preorders for 3 of these guys to display in each and every mode. Loved G1 P/CP as a kid so I'm looking forward to getting the updated version in hand!

    Ebay:
    Price: $24.99 + $55.99 Shipping & Import Fees Deposit to United Kingdom

    Ouch!

    That breaks down to

    Shipping & handling: $42.49
    Import Fees Deposit: $13.50

    XE.com says that $1 = £0.75. So $80, you're talking £60!

    By contrast my $24.90 Wreck-Gar cost £32.20 to get to the UK from RK! (Shipping & Handling US$ 17.00) OK, that's pre customs, the import fee bit of the Amazon price but RK packages generally dodge that on single figures due to the shipping method.

    Yeah, WTF is up with the obscene shipping charge? I ordered CW Groove from Amazon.com and the shipping was nowhere near that extortionate. What happened? :confused:

    I stopped my order when shipping costs for two to Slovakia came up to 200 USD. And 50 USD import deposit.
    150 per one figure, nope.

    Amazon clearly didn’t put correct weight to estimate shipping costs.

    "Shipping costs and import fees to Hungary: 103.5$"
    Yeah never understood the weird logic of Amazon

    Notice how the listing says: "Includes Deluxe Class Punch-Counterpunch figure, special edition Prima Prime Master figure, 2 accessories, and instructions. Ages 8 and up" I think he will come with 2 guns, it was just not shown.

    Not sure if this has been discussed, but it says on the Amazon listing description that the figure will include a piece of prime armor, but it does not say whether he will be able to use it to combine. If you look at Counter-Punch's left leg really closely, you will see a hole, but I don't see a combiner peg anywhere on his chest, unless it is well hidden (unlike many other combiner figures).

    It says in the description that it comes with a Prime Armour! Still not confirmed if it combines, though!
