Why wouldn't he be the standard Voyager price point?
I actually don't have any real reason to say that he would be more than $20. It just seems like Hasbro would market him at a slightly higher price because he comes with so much more than most voyagers who usually just come with a crappy mechtech/weaponizer thing. I hope I am wrong though! If that is the case then I'll be adding to my Soundwave collection!
Hasbro doesn't make up arbitrary price points for toys depending on their accessories, they're very structured about how they price things. If he's revealed and marketed as a Voyager, he'll be on sale at Voyager pricing. That's not to say that Voyager pricing can't go up in the near future, but it means Soundwave will not be more expensive than other Voyagers because he has more accessories.
As for the rest of these reveals, I'm a little disappointed that's all we saw, but what we got, I mostly like. Dead End is about the only one that doesn't interest me, because he's just a random repaint and doesn't even resemble his G1 self. Airachnid could have been bigger but I like what they did with her as a deluxe, so she'll be a definite buy. Dreadwing's pretty sweet. Not as sweet as Skyquake would have been, but I'll take what I can get. And the rest I've already spoken about in other threads. Except Bot Shots. I want almost all of them. Especially Jazz.
I really expected a lot more reveals though, especially for Prime. I feel like Hasbro is being really conservative in light of the FE fiasco. Maybe they're only showing off the few toys they know they can put out, so further releases will be a surprise. That, and SDCC is only a few months away.
