That image painfully reminds me of the dreaded Kiss Players :-(

Does anyone know the size of these things. Alternityis too small for my taste. Would seem appropriate for the price point that it's binaltech size. Then I'll be all over it! That prototype looks awesome

Those are just the typical racing girl or in video game terms, the booth babes. Nothing related to Kissing and the likes. Microsoft Japan has their own "babe mascot"for their various Windows OS releases so this should not come as a surprise.

Well, since the figures are retooled Alternity Convoy figures (so far anyway)I.'d say there's pretty much no chance of them being bigger.

Isn't the bot mode more or less the same as the other Alternity Prime figs? The head might be a little different and there's spoiler kibble on the legs, but otherwise it's pretty much the same, no?

Yup. Just retooled Alternity Convoys. Don't know why people act as if we've never seen these before.



Ohh, and the robot mode is right behind the car to the right on a cardboard prop. So you can see it there.

@Overcracker. Just a hopeful question. Why the sarcasm? I can see that but was curious, since Alternityis is about 50, and these things are 115 (price wise). Wanted to see if they're worth spending double the money. Besides, I've never opened mine so don't really know what it looked like, ther then web images. And the proto image looks bulkier and bigger

i liked kiss players to

also remember in Japan a girl can legially have sex at the age of 13 if she wishes. I think thats why the kiss player girls looked so seriously young.....

Why are we getting this crap anyway? if its just a retooled Alty convoy....whats the point? did i miss something on this or are Takara just pretending alty convoy didnt happen so that they can re-release him again but with a spoiler

Seeing how they are making Star Saber, I cannot pass on that. I also might as well not pass on Fortress Maximus... IF he is going to be made. Namely because I am trying to collect characters based on the Japan exclusive Supreme Commanders and and Deputy Supreme Commanders that appeared in any animated portion of the franchise. :-B

Oh... And anybody who speaks of Kiss Players again has to write a letter of apology to those traumatized by that series! :lol:

Actually, no, the age of consent is mostly far higher than that and is decided by each region. It's just that the nationally mandated minimum age of consent is 13.

The figures looked like they did because the driving force behind them and the audience they were intended for are creepy people.

I would be interested in Star Saber, but not for that price. I'd rather wait for a Masterpiece...as if it would ever happen. :lol:

Actually, the expected price of these happen to be a deal compared to how much a reissue of Star Saber - Much less a Masterpiece version - would cost. :lol:

Then again, you might get lucky and find this version at a reduce price on a online store. So I wish you luck if you go with that approach. ;)^

The storyline is now irrelevant. In the first place you can't fit in a viable KP figure in its vehicle mode.

Goody: the same figures with more kibble! Just what they need to give them more balance issues!

No offense intended by the little quip.

Anyway, the molds look bulkier because they are retooled. They get what the car enthusiasts call a body kit. The spoilers, the lower fender, side skirts etc...

The price hike seems to be due to all the sponsor markings and the GT label. Since these are meant to represent real world racing Nissan Super GT's. They not only have to license the labels,and logos of all the sponsors for all the cars, they also need to license the general Super GT Cup name for the line.

At the end of the day, its a specialty line, with several things there that hike up the price.


However underneath all that they are still Alternity Convoys.
