Different version of alternators

Postby tvip » Fri Jan 26, 2007 1:07 pm

So I was looking threw the new ravage pictures and didn’t know you could get a British license plate version of alternators from Briton, are there any other variations like that maybe from France or Australia for that fact what are the different versions of alternators you can get to my knowledge

America, Canada: plastic cars, driver seat on the left, American license plate.
Japan: know as binaltech, dicast parts as well as plastic parts, seats on the right, American license plates
Britain: plastic parts, driver seats on the left, Britain plates.

Are there any other variations out there?

It's Britain, and as far as I know Ravage is the first and only UK released Alternator to have a GB number plate the rest are identical to the US releases. Many of of of the Japanese versions do have the steering wheels on the other side better/more paint apps, and the obvious diecast. There are a few documented steering wheel variants in the US but Other than that most Alts are identically in all countries.

The only Alternator variants I know of are early versions of Silverstreak with a right side steering wheel and the Japan only limited release of "Satellite Patrol" Prowl.

EDIT: Forgot about another minor alteration on Alt Prowl. The bubble package version has paint apps that say "acura RSX" on the rear trunk and what looks like a center tail light (going by the Seibertron gallery) that's missing on the original red box version.
