Thanks to Seibertron.com user Bounti76, we know that the simplified voyagers Predaking and Optimus Prime, upscaled versions of their Cyberverse Commander counterparts, have started showing up at US retail. This sighting in particular comes from a Target in Centerville, Utah. Check out the image of Predaking below for proof! If any other users spot these at retail, make sure to report your findings in the Sightings section of Seibertron.com, for both Optimus Prime and Predaking.

I've attached a picture of Voyager Predaking. Optimus was there, too, but the green highlights put me off buying him.

Pretty sure those were scrapped. If they are going to show up at retail they do not have much time left. TF4 toys should be on the shelves next month.

It's highly expected that those will show up at HTS, if they ever do at all. They've only been seen in some Asian countries so far (Singapore, etc).

Although you never know, TRU sometimes stocks "lost waves" several months after their expected release dates. Looking at you, Universe 2.0 Voyager Wave 2 that showed up in late 2009 after the line had ended.

This wasn't from a "lost wave", but DotM Leader Jetwing Optimus Prime just showed up at my local TRU recently, along with ANOTHER batch of First Edition Prime Deluxes.

Black Friday backstock maybe? These toy stores always have some nice surprises when you give them time.

"Infernum Sword??" :???:

Guess they're just making up words now... Biggest result I found on Google for "Infernum" is a "black metal band out of Poland." :lol:

Although this looks pretty cool compared to the FIRST Predaking Voyager I bought, I am sticking with my $12 "Leader-class" one I picked up last month :grin:

I bought these 2 figures from a Tesco here in the UK a few weeks ago. Why doesn't THAT get a news post?

But seriously, did you submit it as news? I see stuff posted from finds from places in the world that does little for us Yanks or anyone in Europe, so why wouldn't they post it? :-?

I will back you up, My Friend...God Save the Queen!! :KREMZEEK:

As I recall, Jetwing Optimus was a Black Friday only import from Asia. It never showed up at any U.S. retail that I'm aware of.

I'm actually very pleasantly surprised by this. It feels much more solid than the regular Voyager, and poses more easily- though the joints do ratchet very tightly. I'm definitely replacing my regular Voyager with this in my Predacon display. Still haven't opened Beast Fire Predaking and now have no reason to.

There's a US Amazon version with orange, red, and blue versions of the gun with trailer deco on the wings. That version was also made a TRU exclusive for Black Friday in 2013.

Well, I just told you it DID. And this wasn't the first time I saw it there; I was just pointing out that it showed up again after a long absence.

Post a thread here: transformers-news-and-rumors-f234.php or email news@seibertron.com when you have personally made, and can verify, a sighting you think may be the first for your region. If it is, it'll be newsed up :D I'm not on the news crew but we're bros so I'll speak for them on that one.


Didn't say it earlier in the thread, but this version of Predaking is downright excellent. High recommend for a pickup if you see it, even if you have the Ultimate version.

Look at it this way: Simplified -> Larger Toys. This sucker of a Voyager Predaking is as big as, if not bigger than the Beast Fire one:

That wasn't my point. I was saying I'm not paying more for an "upscaled" cyberverse character.

OK, but what about paying $20 for a Leader-size figure that's bigger and better-looking than the Voyager? What about paying half price for a better Leader-class figure?

Just how big is the "Simplified Voyager" Optimus Prime compared to his wavemate Predaking?
