Looks like the regular Alternity Convoy Ultimate Silver figure. Same spoiler and such.

I was very interested in the original Alternity Convoy until I saw the side profile. Shoulders not aligned with head and body, like Titanium Ultra Magnus. Not acceptable for such high priced toy.

Here's a small update for the previously reported news of the Takara Tomy's Super GT figures on display at the Fuji International Speedway, the prototype of Optimus Prime also made an appearance. Once again these images come to us from the Bluesmobile325 twitter feed. This figure along with Star Saber and Fortress Maximus versions will be released next year.

Is this mold bigger than the previous alternities, or is just me?

It looks bigger and bulkier. May be worth it after all. Wow!

That's not the standard size, that's an Alternator size Alt.
Unless it is a one up, for detail analysis, this looks like a 1:24 line now.

I have Alt OP in my hands, and he is not the same size.

looks to be roughly 7.5- 8 inches tall.
Thats BT size!

For the sake of establishing proper scale, here are the official dimensions of the box, as provided by Toy Hobby Market:

Width: 220 mm
Height: 210 mm
Depth: 90 mm

Or in Imperial:

Width: 8.7 inch
Height: 8.3 inch
Depth: 3.5 inch

Compared with Alternity boxes, they are larger in Width and Height, but not in Depth. This may indicate they'll be packaged in Robot Mode.

Small boy passes by on his scooter.

Takara rep: "Hey small boy, would you like to play with this rare unreleased prototype?"

Small boy: "Wow this looks huge and possibly expensive. I'll give you my £$1 pocket money for it!"

Takara rep: "Security! SECURITY!"

Wait... What? One of my speculations might be coming true?! :-? I have no clue how to respond to this if it is true. :BOOM:

Besides that, it does make me wish I did not miss out on Binaltech Asterisk. And knowing my luck, I might also regret missing out on this as well. :lol:

It does look like a kid is holding it, which would make the toy look bigger than it is ;)

Note that it actually is a small child that is holding it. Size of the box doesn't tell anything and obviously the box is bigger if it comes with that race harlot figure and possibly other extra stuff. Prime AM figures have big boxes as well.

It might be larger scale, but I still doubt that, because of the reasons said like 10 times before so I don't repeat that.

Really. A "harlot"? That really helps us take what you said seriously. :roll:

But yeah... Some of us here own Arms Micron figures and others own Alternity. Some, like me, own at least one of both. So using a kid's hand as a scale does help some of us determine both the size and bulk of the figure. :-?

And even then... I think those who are being serious about the size are not substitute NFL referees. :lol:

just because there is a scooter, does not make it a child, nor small by any means.
It's japan, it's acceptable there.

Besides I've never seen a "Kid" with old beat up long finger hands.

meh, whatever, we will know soon enough.



it's still all speculation.

KUMA-NIN Maximus ---- you are still wrong, these are not bigger, besides the fact ive actually seen these with my own eyes, look at the pics, see the one with the silver car in the corner of the shot? yeah thats alternity Convoy in ultimate silver, see they are the same size? i know, youll say the upscaled him too.

sheesh being that i saw it with my own eyes should be enough... IT IS NOT BIGGER.
