So you are telling me that despite the fact that they need to license these GT racers individually (which can be costly), the fact they have yet to debut the pieces in an event that I have just mentioned in a previous response today
, and the fact we know absolutely nothing about this line and what TOMY has in store for it... A photo that shows four GT racers using the same mold means that we should ignore every other fact in the process? Think about that while I drink this hot cocoa very slowly, while hoping to finish writing a review on the first chapter of the new Transformers: All Spark manga.

So by all means, I ask that they keep doing what they're doing as they stretch the line and its offshoots thinner and thinner. Keep the passes easy, I say!
The Alternity line is nothing more than the remnants of the Binaltech line. As in the fact that if that line was to be successful, we may have seen these molds be part of that. But it was not, and we ended up seeing three pieces for Binaltech Asterisk and the remnants be recycled for Alternity. In other words... Transformers GT is more Binaltech than Alternity, which means that as long as it sells, we will see new molds for new characters be put out.
