Those are the European releases of the Hero Optimus Prime and Megatron figures. But instead of having doubles of any character on the shelves,
Hasbro UK decided to give them new names and remove the original names from the stickers. Hence we get G2 Sureshot and G2 Archforce.

Wow. The only difference is the bio and names on the packagings, and no nametags on the bots. The most ridiculous thing is those variants must be worth a gonzillion pesos.

You'd think that, but in Europe they're commonplace. I've seen G2 Sureshot loose and complete go for just €20.

Nope these ones I'll be keeping like I do all of my other figures (with the sole exception being the unproduced Combat Heroes). I think Archforce and Sureshot make a better G2 Megatron and Optimus Prime because they don't have the ridiculous text on their chests declaring their names.

I paid $164 for the pair shipped from Greece. A little higher than it looks like some people have been able to get them for but much less than this pair used to go for a few years ago. These used to be hard to find ... it seems like somewhere in Europe either found cases of these or just started selling more of them online.

Maybe it's simply a matter of different market sentiments. I know to the US some EU toys are well-sought after, and thus fetch a high price, but here in Europe we're like "meh".
