Feel -- and even hear -- the excitement with this awesome electronic BATTLE OPS BUMBLEBEE figure: you can unlock different phrases and sounds in both of his modes! In robot mode, this powerful warrior features a flip down mask accessory to "protect" him and an arm that converts to a cannon accessory to attack his enemies. And those enemies will know they're in for serious combat when they see this figure's limited edition metallic finish, glowing eyes, chest and "weapons"! For "on-the-road" battle action, convert your figure into Camaro concept car mode and activate the fearsome flip out cannon accessories. From revving engine noises to vehicle battle noises and more, this figure's realistic sounds really put you in the "driver's seat" in every fight. And with his robot-to-vehicle BUMBLEBEE and MUDFLAP figures by his side, the action is bigger than ever!

Value pack includes premium BUMBLEBEE and MUDFLAP Legends figures. Includes 2 "AA" batteries.

I'd really like to see the original version and this one side by side to see which color I like better. The Costco price is great, I'll have to find someone with a membership that would help me out, tho (hint-hint).

The ring pull does come off, there's an instruction sheet inside that details how to remove it properly.

Goddamn that's cheap! $41.99 converts to about £26 and the regular non-metallic figure is about £60 here. So this limited edition even with shipping costs is still probably cheaper than our regular one bought from a store. I want. Especially seeing the ring pull is removable. Just wish I knew someone over there who lives near one of these stores I could paypal some money to.

I don't mind helping some of you out. There are a lot of Costco stores around me and I'm a member. For the International people who want this, I don't think this will ship via First Class International as it's too large to fit in a box with bubble wrap. Priority Mail would be the way to go but that makes shipping more expensive.

It's $41.99 plus tax so it works out to about $45 where I live near Chicago.

I'm not that familiar with US pricing in stores. So the advertised price isn't what you actually pay? Still a few extra dollars is nothing. Each one works out about 60 pence.

If you really wouldn't mind sending some out that would be muchly appreciated. How much do you think it would cost in dollars total of the toy itself, shipping to UK and a lil extra for your trouble?

To those of you asking if I can help you, if other opportunities arise where you can buy this, please use those opportunities. Otherwise, I'll touch base with all of you on Monday which will be the earliest that I can help you out.

We have to pay sales tax. The amount varies from state to state and can even vary county by county. The type of item (food versus consumer goods, etc) also can affect the amount of sales tax that is charged. Some states charge sales tax on food, some don't. Some charge sales tax on clothing, some don't. You don't have to pay a sales tax in the UK?

I'll get back to you about the shipping some time on Monday via email.

Not really sure how tax works but I know the price you see on the shelf or the box's price tag is the price you pay and no more. Tax is included I reckon.

Yes, it is, at least from what I understand of how VAT(Value Added Tax) works.

For Americans(and others that are interested in a basic layout of how it works): VAT

Put it shortly, yes, Taxes are included in the price shown. So what you see is what you pay.

If you're curious about rates: The Netherlands has 6% (VATLow) for food, and 19% (VATHigh) for anything else. This is important if you're going on vacation in Europe: some shops have so-called Tax-Free shopping if you're spending a certain amount (in the Netherlands it's €50). After filling the proper forms provided, you can ask for the VAT back at the airport.

No no, the VAT rates in the US vary by county (parts of states), but still, compared with us the US is always cheaper, until you get to shipping the thing :P
