These are epiphone valve juniors but with an added tone control. Never played the GA5 but assume it would sound as good as the epi. The Valve junior is £119.
These are great modding platforms (just about to do a few on my epi )

Do these actually come with UK fitted plugs?

Absolutely correct on all of your points. There is a sound sample on the main page - click on the green play button.

These any better than the roland microcube or vox da5?

Good point... I don't know. No big deal fitting a UK plug though, if it isn't.

Depends what you are after, if you want a load of different sounds and effects while practicing then a microcube is good however if you want the warm sound of a cranked tube amp then a GA5/epi junior wins.

99% Sure they have a standard kettle lead (conputer power lead etc) fiiting on the back so there is a chance you will get a euro 2 pin lead and just have to get a 3 pin kettle lead

Those amps are solid state and have digital effects built in. The GA5 uses good old valves for amplification. No transistors and no build in effects.

The cube is a nice box of tricks. The digital effects are good but you’ll soon get bored with them. I've not tried the vox.

Is it any better? - that depends on what you're after. If you want some digital sounds to play with go with the cube. But it wont give you a true valve sound.
Conversely, if you go for the GA5, you can add effects afterwards.

If this comes with a European lead be careful that the earth connection is established - these can be dangerous with a two pin convertor.

Not many of your electrical appliances have an earth connection. Take a look at your TV, DVD, Amp, etc plug. You will find the earth pin is plastic!
