I may not be certain, but isn't that why its called a repaint? They just take the same mold and color it different ways (G1 seekers, beast wars cats, etc.).

Re-doing Prime again as a second car just urks me. I want them to actually plan out the line... and lineup. Jazz, Prowl, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Wheeljack, Bluestreak... I'd be buying those.

As is, I have to put this in with the other one-trick-pony lines like the transforming shoes and hats.

I don't want reboots each year. I want a nice lineup of characters with different roles, personalities, designs, storyline, tech specs... all to display well together. Seems like each line tanks before we get a full lineup... or even CLOSE to a lineup.

So many missing characters from the Alternators line. I pour out a drink for those homies.

Transformers Alternators where amazing!
Cool vehicles (for their time) with great articulation, spot-on head molds and reasonably priced!

BRING BACK ALTERNATORS! :grin:

These new Alternity/Super GT figures remind me of the way A&L licenced the Alternator molds and repainted them into other, what could be considered, homages?

Ok, the rework on this is cool. However, I agree that not making these Autobot car characters instead of more Primes is a big miss. I would have considered the blue/white one if it were Mirage and the yellow one as Sunstreaker!

As they are now, it's no x4.

You should be thankful...as it is, it's nearly $500 that's easily saved! I admit, these look pretty neat...but I won't have any problem admiring their neatness from afar.

There's also a fiction-only Zone Toxitron who's a combiner formed by five unreleased characters: Albitron, Screechwing, Leatherhide, Spiketail, and Nightprowler, all of whom form the Combatibots. Their personalaty components were stolen by Ulchtar from the Zone Satellite Penitentiary. ;)

Yes, it's an homage to "Starscream's Brigade". :-B

Between the regular and Super GT versions of this mold we really should be able to get a decent Bluestreak, Prowl and Smokescreen.

More Prime variants is NOT what I'll be spending my hard earned $$$ on.
For Sale:
Classics Magnus/Skywarp 2 pack MIB
Classics Devastator MIP
HA Sideswipe K-Mart exclusive color Loose

Currently looking for:
ROTF Target exclusive Sideswipe from the 2-pack
TFCC Punch/Counterpunch
Alternity Primes, silver & white versions
(opened is OK, to be used for customs)

PM If interested

I wonder if the black one would actually suit a Nemesis Prime, compared to the original Convoy Super Black. If it had grey and purple I bet it would make a decent Motormaster.

I really liked the Alternity Convoy mold when it was first released. And I really like all the new parts they added for the wing spoiler & the different body kit, and even the graphics on the side.

However for the price BBTS is charging for these I'm passing. Maybe if I can get the regular red version on Clearence or something then I'll pick it up.

For those who are still calling it "Alternity"... It is not. :michaelbay:

ASCII Media Works Dengeki 20th Anniversary on October 20th and 21st
"The ASCII Media Works 20th Anniversary Dengeki 20-year Festival is being held in Chiba’s Makuhari Messe halls 1 to 4. The event will take place on October 20th (Sat.) and 21st (Sun.) 2012 from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm (planned times). The new Transformers series “Transformers GT” will be debuted by the Dengeki team. A diorama display including Beast Saga toys is also planned! For details, visit the official homepage."

Compliments of e-HOBBY Magazine. 8)

Plus, TOMY mentioned Super GT... Which is this. In other words, we are seeing a new series that seems to be targeting the world of Gran Turismo. Which has me wonder if they will use different cars for each set... Or something else. :-?
