Patiently awaiting the release of Takara Tomy's Transformers Alternity Super GT-01 GTR Optimus Prime and GT-02 GTR Star Saber? Prepare to wait a little longer. Site sponsor Robotkingdom has updated their facebook page with a message stating these two have been pushed back from March to May. More specifically May 31st according to Autobase Aichi.

For those who may not be familiar with these, they are redeco/retools of Takara Tomy's previously released Alternity A-01 Nissan GT-R Convoy. Each figure also comes packed with a race queen mini figure.

Funny thing: I'd be happier if it was something I cared about getting delayed so I'd have more time to save up for it. That means I technically feel worse about this news than fans eagerly awaiting these two.

Stop messing with my head, Alternity! You too, lousy economy!!!

i have all of the current alternity figures (not bludgeon or galvatron yet) and have never paid more than $40 each... patience people pays off big with these, either through BBTS or ebay you will get a way better price. so at this point they are a pass for me...
