Never mind Buyer Beware! These new redecos are looking sweet! :D
Whilst browsing 3rd party and KO specialist website Chimungmung I came across these little beauties!
It appears A&L, the company who currently put out the old Binaltech/Alternator molds have done it again but this time using Hound, Jazz and Sunstreaker.
These are currently listed up on Chimungmung.com for the bargain price of $16.00 with $15.00 shipping. This is the usual price for their Alternators.

Check out the pictures below for some classy Alternator redecos! ;)
With a set of your favourite faction stickers and perhaps the odd head swap, which characters will you be creating? :-?
The redeco of Jazz is looking kinda cool in blue!!

I'd appreciate it more if they shrunk the Alts down to Deluxe size so they could be used in a CLassics lineup, although I don't know if that's even possible. Especially Prowl, Bluestreak (I dislike the Classics mold), and Skids. Alterators were great, but they're long gone, I don't see these guys being too useful to collectors.

These recolors are okay, but they really don't do anything for me, even if I collected Alts.

Thats whats happened to the recent Alternity line which was disapointing considering the prices paid.
Only Bumblebee seemed to fit in with the older Alternators sizing.

Ever so slightly off my own topic, but does anyone have any of the Happy Well 'RoadBot's which can stand up against an Alternator in terms of quality/build and general 'Transformer-ness'? :-?

I woulda loved the Alternity line if it actually complimented the Classics lineup. But I already have a good Prime, Megs, Seekers, et. The only one I'd consider is Cliffy andI just don't like the look of that mold.

But, had they made Jazz, Tracks, Skids, Ironhide ...
