    Hullo, just posting this as I hadn't seen it announced here yet and I thought it might be of interest. Mods please delete this if it's not useful! :) 

    Last Friday I saw TLK Legion wave 1 in the TRU in Bromley, South London:

    (Sorry for the rubbish photos, the new deco on Grimlock actually looks pretty neat and I may have to go back for him!)

    Barri looks pretty cool as well:

    Here's a faraway Optimus (they had Bee too but I didn't photograph him).

    They're priced at £7.99 in case anyone feels like going on a Legion hunt. :)

    At that price you could just army-build the lot of 'em, right?

    I don't know what I was thinking, leaving them all on the shelf...d'oh! :confused:

    What used to be the average price for Legions pre-TLK?

    Here in Germany, Legions went up from 10 Euros (RID) to 12-13 Euros (TLK).

    I suppose at first glance, yes... but comparing him to my old G1 colors Prime Smokescreen, Barricade is missing a lot of paint. Even though he was never the most colorful of Decepticons, he should still have had some more paint at least, especially at £7.99...!! Wait a few months and Home Bargains or B&Ms should have them for half that cost.

    I recently got Legion Springload and Windblade for £5.99, but lately have more often seen RiD Legions on shelves for £6.99. So the increase isn't horribly drastic...but it's still edging inexorably towards £10!

    I'm hoping the whole line ends up in one of those fine establishments...

    The TLK Legions I found in my local Asda today had a shelf-edge ticket price of £8.97!
    I've heard of chancing your arm, but they seem to be chancing the whole rest of the body too.
