Toyworld's prices are always slightly above others as they don't have the buying power of the other stores, hence why they tend to get their stock weeks in advance.

That being said ... when I say "above others" I mean about $5. Any wonder I wait for the specials which no longer materialise and just import from Japan for a slightly cheaper price ...

It's always been like this. The prices are higher NOW when the AUD is at parity, or above the USD than they were when the AUD was below 0.70AUD three - five years ago.

The only thing the Government is interested in is investigating why software prices are substantially higher in Australia than the rest of the world. (X-Box, PS & PC games are around $90-$100AUD at the time of release)

And still the Australian retailers still fail to see why so many import online...

With Soundwave being my favourite Transformer, it's nice to see all the love he's finally getting, what with a Masterpiece on the way, his awesome silent portrayal in Prime (and the associated figure) and now these two Generations Voyagers... though having him and his repaint in the same case assortment does seem a tad silly, and I'm still not sure which one I want, or whether I'll find a reason to get both... but awesome!

Yeah, I'm up for one of these. A blue one, though. The deluxe never sat completely right with me.

As an Aussie Transformer Fan I get a bit dirty on the whole price thing. But I guess as the consumer I can now buy from overseas - but when you add postage you are not much better off!
And it's not just Transformers. Ride on Lawn mowers in the US and Oz... ( cause I need a new one and have been looking) In the US $1600 - in Aus the same one $5500.
Didn't the US and Aust govts sign a fair trade agreement?
My personal view here is Australia is about to have a huge financial re-adjustment. Prices for food, power, houses, fuel... just about everything is going through the roof, wages are not keeping up - its all bad. And what was up with FOC and WFC both getting PC release - but not in Australia! Thank god for Steam!
Man! - I got a little bit worked up there.

That Free Trade Agreement was made more to the betterment of the US than Australia.

Yeah, we're allowed to export a bit more in primary production to the US, but we had to import even more.

How big are these voyagers, anyway? It seems unlikely that Hasbro will be making voyager versions of FOC OP or Megatron, and it this guy is noticeably taller than deluxe WFC Megatron, he's look weird standing next to him. I'll have to stick with WFC Soundwave, if that's the case.

As for the price, that sounds about right for the prices I'm paying locally--around 150 local dollars. Sucks living outside of the US as far as TF collecting is concerned...or if you're an avid gamer. Expect to pay an extra 13 USD on top of the recommended price of 59.90 USD.

Depending how and what you buy, yes, I would agree with you, but when I can get a case of FOC delivered from BBTS for $160 and the same case costs $208 at my local Target, the choice is easy.

Same issue here. I believe he would make a fine Classics rendition of Soundwave.

There really needs to be Voyagers of the two leaders, though. :-(

well since soundblaster & soundwave are in the same case they shouldnt be to hard to find, just have to hope the stores buy more than one case. That is if they buy any at all, stores are still empty here.

I'll be sticking with the WFC deluxe, then. Way too large to scale in with my WFC figs.

Should scale in well with WFC Bumblebee, though. Problem is, neither of them share any scenes or events at all.

The much larger sizes of these FOC voyagers is good news, though. Grimlock will look sufficiently gigantic when posed with Shockwave and Kickback.

Okay I'm sold on picking Soundblaster when he hits the US of A. He and Grimlock are gonna dwarf my deluxes and in grimlock's case, this is a good thing.
