Transformers Generations: Fall of Cybertron Voyager Wave 1 Released in Australia

Motto: "I ain't got time to bleed!"
Weapon: Gattling Gun
Our friends down under have made the first retail sighting of Transformers Generations: Fall of Cybertron Voyagers wave 1. This wave features the rather odd case assortment of Soundwave with Laserbeak and their repaints Soundblaster with Buzzsaw. This information makes it's way to us by way of the Australian fansite Ozformers. The figures were found at Toyworld in South Australia. Hopefully these two will find their way Stateside in the near future.

No sh*t man, TRU prices aren't looking so bad right about now. But does anyone know if both Soundwave and Soundblaster will come with hand weapon? Most of the pics I have seen show them with their shoulder weapons only. :VEHI:

Im already committed to the Takara versions. However, I would like to buy a Hasbro Soundwave and the Blaster repaint to kitbash a Twincast. That is, if the mold is easy to take apart and not filled with those damn tight ass pins. I guess only time will tell...

I'm still using my Music Label Soundwave and Soundblaster as those characters and I still have no regrets. I'm just glad we're finally seeing these two. It means Grimlock's release is getting all the closer.

Australian Dollars, as the sighting was in Australia. Expect the US price to be around $30.

And I'm still torn between Deluxe Soundwave and the Voyagers. :BANG_HEAD:

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)

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!

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.
