Toys"R"Us Japan have posted new prototype images of Takara Tomy's upcoming Super GT figures GT-01 Optimus Prime and GT-02 Star Saber. Each is remold of their previous Alternity Convoy fiigure, and features various racing sponsor logos and a race queen mini figure. These images give us a good look at each figure in both modes, including their remolded weapons. Images mirrored below.

Neat figures. Part of me hopes the race queens are available separately.

I don't think it's bad, in fact I'm happy to see there is someone on this site that isn't defeated by a little plastic girl ;) (I wonder how many of our female fandom have been repulsed by 'MP' Spike? :-? )
Still, quips aside, they are going to be the most unique thing in the box. It is such a shame how spammed the alternity molds have been-but-I do appreciate a lot of the work that's gone into retooling and re-molding for these releases, even Prime has a new (or at least tweaked) head, which shows thay are not being THAT lazy. I wanna know if the visors flip down.
I like them, partners and all. I shouldn't be affording them, but I probably will :-$

The molds look solid, but yeah - the Race Queens on their own would definitely be welcome addition to the shelf.

So no, it is not bad. They are adorable.

You're not the only one who wants the girls more. I do as well.

Also, after seeing Prime's head in the new pics, I actually like it. Star Saber's head needs some work though. And his weapon, WTF?

I want those race queen figs too. It lends a sense of scale to the TF's. Plus, the girls are pretty cute.

Is it too much to speculate we might be getting vinyl race queens, I mean they sure are pushing those images, even with just prototype images they still want us to see the girls, maybe part of the price increase will be small vinyl race queens?

why would they go through so much effort for just a small art character?

And what sucks for me is the fact that I was ready to preorder Star Saber. Now I cannot on account that the only member (of the two; not mentioning the other) I respect not only ignored everything I said, but made it sound like I wanted it to be a certain scale size. All I said is that this is a collaboration piece, which has them be supplied with what they need... And everything else is what their partner wants. I only used the size as a speculation, and now am forced to fight the fact that I now this as a recycled Alternity line - Not Star Saber with a Nissan-based Super GT racing alt-mode. :BANG_HEAD:

It's a new mold. Currently, the transformation sequence appears to be the same, but the mold is completely redone. (Which is why I was speculating that they may have considered re-sizing it as well.) But what is ironic is that Impul does do aftermarket parts for Nissan, and also has some funky looking cars (with one I kinda like). :lol:

But honestly? Seeing how they are not Kiss Players,it is not bad to want the Racing Queen figures more. ;)

^ THIS! :michaelbay:

I am 100% certain that atop of the pricing tied to the content is the case here. Because it makes perfect sense to have the added content (not on the car) be what increases the price. Especially if they do decide to include a figure that is their Racing Queen partner. :ic$:

So good job with that speculation, RT! ;)^

Ditto. But it is interesting to find that he likes the French owned Super GT racing team's "queen." :P

What's up with Star Saber's sword? Can he hold it right? That might be a deal breaker for me

Ugh. Those race queens are creepy as heck.

I like the remolding on these figures a fair amount, even if i'm not a huge fan of the visors.

Star Sabers head is... so 2009.. and by that I mean.. EPIC FAIL! :BOOM:
Head Robots / Venksta / or another 3rd party could remedy this.. I hope..
So far the breast part of these figures is the Kiss Players.. I mean RACE QUEENS..

---God I hope that they aren't supposed to be the bots in PRETENDER mode---

Then You'll have to replace RACE with DRAG...

So ahhh ... think TT will move on from race cars to drag cars complete with their own Drag Queens?

He's going to have a sword? I thought they only showed a funky gun. 8) Which I found out was the sword. #-o

I don't know. Will these "Drag Queens" be "more than meets the eye"? ;)

Oh boy, reading comprehension fail...

It's right on the page..

[quote]Each is remold of their previous Alternity Convoy fiigure, and features various racing sponsor logos and a race queen mini figure. These images give us a good look at each figure in both modes, including their remolded weapons. Images mirrored below. [/quote]

So there's part of the price increase.

Seriously, you guys. This was what I was trying to say was due to the price increase... Not the size. :lol: So thanks, RT, for making me feel sane again. ;)^

And now, I need to determine if I still want to buy Star Saber... Or take my chances by playing the "Generation One Waiting Game." :-?
