As found in our UK sightings page, fellow Seibertronian Searchlight has spotted and purchased Voyager Silverbolt at Smyths for £22.99 (about US$36) in the UK. Silverbolt and Optimus Prime are apaprently the only ones from that line to be on shelves.

Here are pictures he took of his purchase.

The cashier was having troubles scanning the barcode as the computer couldn't find it on file. So receipt doesn't show much.

This is my feeble attempt to get them on the pegs.

36 bucks for a voyager ? I never heard of Smyths but I'm guessing it's a smaller chain that sells Transformers at "I got it first" prices.

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

As JelZe stated that's just the conversion rate to US dollars. £23 is actually quite reasonable over here as TRU sell their voyagers at closer to £25. And Smyth's is probably our second largest toy store after TRU.

also you've gotta take into consideration the avg wage/cost of living varies from place to place. For example, even taking exchange rates into account, the min wage where I am in AUs is at least double what I've seen in some places in the U.S., but then so is the price of certain goods, so it all balances out (mostly) in the end. Also, unlike the US, Aus/Uk and many other places include any taxes in the price.

Here in Brazil, with taxes and conversion, it's about $80 for a voyager...

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.

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:
