I think I'm most amazed by seeing a Voyager on a PEG. I can't think of when I ever saw that happen. I just figured they were too big so got put on shelves instead.

Actually, it's a bit less than this:
- it's about US$34 for a Deluxe (Either AoE or the Generations Armada Starscream, Minion team, Skywarp, Scoop. Older lines were a bit cheaper)
- About US$60 for a Voyager (Age of Extinction only; The generations Sandstorm, Doubledealer and Rhinox along with Beast Hunters Voyagers were at about US$53)
- and about US$114 for a Leader (AoE Leader Optimus, Grimlock and Generations Jetfire; same value for Leaders since DoTM and including Beast Fire Predaking)

Yeah, still pretty expensive... :sad:

That was my exact reaction. I had to do a double take and was still staring at it thinking voyager+peg=does not compute :lol:

At my local Wal*Mart, they ran out of shelf space (there are a ton of Voyagers, both AoE and Generations, all old of course) so they put those sticker hang tags on the Leader boxes and hung them from the pegs. (No joke!)

First and only time I had ever seen it.

I just saw the same thing at a Wal-Mart tonight! :lol:
AOE Leader Prime hanging on a peg.

My 1st reaction to the CWs on a peg was...
Awe Oh, are they smaller than we think?

I worry about that, too, but pictorials seem to indicate they're either the same size as other Voyagers or even slightly bigger. I'm assuming they're quite hollowed out, but they seem to have some size on them. I've heard they're a slight bit taller than FP's Colossus/Bruticus. If that's true, that's awesome, because MakeToys Giant and FP's Intimidator is larger than Bruticus is and I'd like them all to be in the same, or close, scale.

FP's Superion is still the shrimp of the group. :( I'll never be able to get any money out of that set, either, now that Hasbro's is coming.

X, that's the price converted from British pounds. Such prices are standard fare in Europe actually and unfortunately. And if you must know, Smyths is a rather large chain of toy stores found throughout the UK and Ireland. >:oP



At the top of the news story the article says this:

Searchlight has spotted and purchased Voyager Silverbolt at Smyths for £22.99 (about US$36) in the UK.

Am I the only one that caught the conversion to US dollars listed in the article ?

Anyways, a voyager costs anywhere between $22-26 dollars including tax here in Miami, Florida at Walmart or Target. At TRU it might be a couple bucks more.

I wouldn't be surprised to see a Skywarp Legends in the not-too-distant future. I'm not keen on Blackjack, think it makes the chest look too wide, but the V shape of the jet works well. Acid Storm might not look too bad.


Skywarp... hm... You know if the point of the 'armor' Transformers were to add that individual's 'outlier' powers to the larger gestalt, Skywarp boosting Menasor would have to be one of the most terrifying combinations you could come up with.

They weren't hanging from pegs, rather they were sitting on top of pegs instead. Size wise he is currently standing shoulder-to-shoulder with my generations Sandstorm.

Have to say he is a good quality figure with excellent poseability, good solid joints and an easy yet satisfying transformation. The only negatives are that in jet mode there is a lot of undercarriage robot kibble and his gun is rather large, however these are definitely out weighed by the positives. You even geta trading card with art work that looks like that from the DeNA game.

Sorry, I would've posted more pics but my laptop is broken and doing the last lot by mobile phone only nearly gave me a minor aneurysm :HEADHURTS:

Please please PLEASE let these come out in my local stores...Also they had better be releasing the limb-bots too. It would be dumb if they only released the torsos.

New Combiner Wars Figure Names Revealed In Walmart Computers

Courtesy of fellow fan site, The ALLSpark, we now know of a finding by fellow fan Decepticus Prime. Decepticus has uncovered and shared a new set of Walmart inventory computer listings for the upcoming Combiner Wars figure line. The listings show the possibilty of the existence of the Protectobots team and mention new names as well, such as Prowl! We've mirrored his images and the list of names below:

Image

Image

Protectobot Streetsmart
Protectobot Rook
Protoctobot First Aid
Protectobot Blades
Prowl
Sunstreaker
Mirage
Ironhide

As we all know by now, these listings are liable to change at any given moment, or Hasbro might be using them as placeholder names, so for the time being, take this with a grain of salt. If this holds true, we have an awesome 2015 ahead of us!

Keep your optics tuned to Seibertron.com for the latest in news and updates, plus the best galleries around!

Yeah, that is what the article says. It's (pretty much) regular UK retail price for a Voyager figure over here.

Well well well...

The last four are new, while the Protectobot ones all happen to match up quite nicely with the previous rumor about them. How about that. :SMUG:

I may be very interested in the Deluxe Prowl, if it does what I want it to do. :-?

Everything else, while potentially pretty, I'm really not that fussed about.

Prowl=Deadend or streetwise recolor/tool
Sunstreaker=breakdown recolor/tool
Ironhide=first aid retool or the new truck Stunticon whose replacing wild rider
Mirage=drag strip retool

Prowl!!!! Then maybe.... just maybe, we might see an updated Devastator!!!

Seeing Prowl's off-road vehicle mode in the comics, I was struck how similar the mode is to OFFROAD, the new member of the Stunticons. Maybe we'll see Offroad re-tooled as Prowl? But I don't how they'd convert a limb from one Gestalt to form the head/chest of another.

My wallet is weeping already, while I can't stop drooling.

Hoping that Sunstreaker is actually Sideswipe or that he will also be released eventually.

Otherwise it is great news, fingers crossed it is accurate.

Guessing Prowl, Sunstreaker, Mirage and Ironhide will all use CW Stunticons toys. So they can all form that Masquerade Menasor with Generations CW Optimus.

Sunstreaker is a lil surprising, sideswipe would of made more sense (unless in comics he dies or is captured, which prompts Sunstreaker into action)

However I don't want a homage to one episode of the G1 toon in the main line, taking up the place of something else so I'm hoping it's a wal*mart exclusive.

Protectobots I'm still not going to hold my breath till I see the actual toys (which I'm hoping will be soon)

Would it be asking too much for them to do Piranhacon? (Looked at his toy on ebay, fell in love again)

We're probably going to get repaints/retools of Ratchet and Sideswipe anyway. So we may start with the 16 deluxes, but it wouldn't be surprised if we ended up with at least 32 after store exclusive repaints. Plus, you know, third party jumping in and making their own limbs.
