    Spotted the Optimus Prime Voice Changer Helmet from Transformers: The Last Knight in my local Smyths this afternoon. Priced at £79.99

    FYI: No mention of this anywhere on the Smyths website...

    Just a small comment: "In stock" is usually used to refer to "available online" around these parts, whereas what you discovered would be typically called "released at retail". But that's just a minor issue, congrats to your find! And I'm sure someone will use this as an opportunity to call me out for being "condescending" and a bunch of other things again.

    My word, 80 quid! You can pick up one from the car boots next year when little Jimmy has tired of it.

    Maybe if it's sold for half price, with an added discount... but £80 is insane.

    They're in Newport too. I expect to become very familiar with the sight of them.

    These helmets look great (even after seeinng the video review of one). I was close to ordering one of these from H.T.S. yesterday but then I realized I might can't fit this over my face unlike my latex goat mask and Wolf makes because they can move around my glasses and this hard plastic might not be able too. But still thinking about getting it and seeing if it could maybe fit. A black Nemisiss prime paint job would be awesome.

    I just want the voyager Prime to show up. I hope this isn't the only "first edition" or "preview" item.

    Same here, though I am curious as to what reviewers like Optibotiomus and Emgo316 will say about the figure.

    Yea but emgo is a total weirdo while optibotimus is just always nitpicky so i dont see how their reviews are valid. Peaugh on the other hand or maybe baltmatrix or even vagelus would suffice

    At least if it's Smyths there's a chance of a reduction later.. I'm still waiting for ToysRUs to do their Platinum Set exclusives for less than a hundred quid a pop.

    From the listings on Amazon, Voyager Optimus seems to be just part of the first wave.

    Interesting that the official pics for the helmet and in this review the box just has the Transformers logo, but the box found in store and in this review has the Premier Edition logo too.

    They're loving the cyberglyphics on the packaging for this line.
