disgruntled! lol

but thanks Va-al ;)^

Glad they've stuck with the cheaper price....for Magnus, I was beginning to think that the price on the thing I posted.....was a one-off

anyway.....no point in making my way there til Magnus reaches TRU here in Scotland! but as soon as he does.....I'm sure I'll be there

One weird point of note though

Even though some TRU's have got Magnus in! he's still not showing up on their website yet

what £200 for trypticon what a rip-off its disgusting how these platinum edition sets are ridiculously overpriced and still more proof why the transformers franchise is slowly dying

I wouldn't say tfs are dying as a franchise but here in the UK, it's an uphill struggle, I mean I've seen people buying, kids and adults alike but it's definitely not a great market for hasbro

Don't forget in the UK they have the taxes (it's called VAT, right?) built into the prices so it's not entirely Hasbro's fault.

Haven't even seen Ultra Magnus at regular American retail yet, same for the Thundercracker and Starscream. Thankfully I was able to get UM off HTS on sale a few months ago. Now the two Megatrons, those aren't in short supply around here.

And yeah, Transformers is dying, just like it has been since Armada. :lol: Truth is the franchise is stronger than ever. Just look at New York Comic Con. Last year they held a press party and the only new Generations reveals were Leader Thundercracker and Legends Huffer. The only panels they held were for RID and an IDW comic panel. This year they had a big multimedia presentation and revealed an entire new line of figures. And that's on top of big displays at SDCC, BotCon, and New York Toy Fair. If anything the franchise as a whole is getting too big and us fans are struggling to keep up, especially when you factor in the stuff Takara Tomy is doing.

Even without all of those (so, in America at least) they're way too much, at least in towns that have competition, they go under the msrp (hasbros recommended price) of $18 at a bit more reasonable $15, but thats still too much for the lackluster qc and paint apps; especially considering they're all repaints :roll:

Despite the backlash towards leaders, I still think Megatron was one of the best leaders we have gotten. I love that toy to death :BOT:

Are you F ing kidding me? £200 that TRU are asking is still waaaay to much for this figure! now granted.....like you said.....the original on Ebay may cost more....but that depends on who the seller is.......& if it's not some scalper! you'd need to shop around....then you'll probably find one a lot cheaper than what TRU are selling the Platinum Edition for.....mind you.....Ebay may have one of those cheaper on there too!
