bitter sweet news. EZ Devastator is out at St Luke's Farmers! but you will have to pony up $100 for him (or $80 if you can take advance of the 20% off sale)

Not worth it if you ask me :(

Also available is that Cannon BB & Blue Soundwave pack. Didn't get the price on that one.

Bludgeon and mind-wipe cant be too far away now :pray:

Sweet, new stock.
$100 for Devy though is a touch on the high side. I expected about $60 (7 Legends @ $9 each = $63)

yeah $100 for a legends Devy is pretty ridiculous when you consider for less than double that price you can get the Supreme size, although it doesn't change into individual robots.. still a better deal

Yeah, definitely not the best price we should be being charged. I'd have understood $70. I paid $90 for my EZ Collection Dev, and have enjoyed that for a good few months now, seems I got the better deal in the end!

Hmm, my best bet is to hope he sits around for a while and gets clearanced. I can't justify that price tag.

I'll just chime in here on the general outrage at the Legends Devastator price - couldn't believe it when I saw it at St Lukes tonight. According to TFormers, it's going for US$32 at Walmart right now - that's less than NZ$50. I ave a feeling that they're going to gather dust next to their giant-size counterparts until Farmers eventually 'clearances' them - y'know, at $10 off the regular price (I'm looking at you , Star Trek Movie Playsets...)

We don't know specifically if it is Hasbro that's charging that much, don't forget Farmers are asking more for leader class figures as well compared to other stores - it may just be them being money-hungry, not Hasbro. It was plainly obvious that Farmers bought a LOT of Leader-Class stock, more than most Warehouses did, and charged $10 more, so I doubt Hasbro pricing is to blame, greedy Farmers is.
