Honestly at $8 a piece and detail like happy meal toys... you're much better off buying cyberverse at your favorite discount chain... Hell, even Ross has deluxes for $6

We also have them here in Costa Rica. One of the main newspapers (La Nación) is issuing them one per week, starting with the collector box. Actually $8 USD is a good price, because a Deluxe figure is around $20 in local stores, and don't forget that each issue includes a book with a Transformers Prime episode resume and activities. They are nicely made in high quality materials.

I was thinking of gettin' it mostly for the box, which'd be great for weapons/parts/instructions storage, but they told me about the PVC being toxic, honestly I had no idea of this, anyone knows?

"Robots that transform into vehicles and back into robots? What a great idea! Let's make them into non-transforming figurines and sell them with books! Kids will love that!"
"Yes, and let's offer them through newspapers, because if there's one thing kids love more than books and non-transforming figurines with zero articulation, it's newspapers!"
