Alternity Bumblebee? Cool, but I won't be able to afford it in a million years. Still - wait, what? Did it say red Bumblebee? Doesn't it mean...Cliffjumper? :wink:
I can't wait for pics. Are Alternity toys hard to transform?


:BOT:

Not any more so than your average movie figure. And thus far, the two molds have a lot of similarity in their transformations...which I really hope changes with future molds if I'm going to continue shelling out $50 for a deluxed sized figure.

Encore Cassettes #3, please give us Beastbox, Grandslam, Squawkbox and squawktalk. I would be all over that.

We'd like to thank Mike from Digital Toys for providing us with new pics of a few items just announced from Takara-Tomy.

Kicking things off is Alternity-03 which is Bumblebee with a Suzuki Sport vehicle mode. Supposedly it is being released in both "champion yellow" and "pearl red", although for now only the yellow picture is available. No official word on whether the "pearl red" will be renamed Cliffjumper as of yet.

Image

Next up is Disney Label Donald Duck concept art. If this holds true, look for a VW Bug similar to G1 Bumblelbee.

Image

Finally, last but not least we have the latest Encore cassette mission set. Judging by the picture, it looks like it will contain Frenzy, Rumble, Lazerbeak and Overkill.

Image

All of these items are slated for either November or December releases but you may pre-order them all right now by clicking here!

We'd like to thank Digital Toys not only for these pictures but also for being a valued site sponsor of Seibertron.com! If you have never checked them out before, now is a great time to do so!

I dont know what total moron decided the alternity line should be out of scale with alternators, but I would like to choke them.

I would have bought megatron, bumblebee and cliffjumper alternity figs in a second if they were 1-24 scale like the alts.

This really sucks, where do these weird molds fit into a collection?

Anywhere ?

Let's say that "size" has never been an issue for Hasbro/Takara/Tomy. That's why you get peanut sized megatrons and armchair sized bumblebees. :lol:

Holy freakin' $#!t!!!!!! Finally they got it right by letting loose rumble and frenzy. Patients for all those who wait and the wait is over. And with what appears to be Overkill in the set and with the upcoming release of SDCC Soundwave on the horizon it's gonna be bitchin'...'nuff said!!! B-)

Everything is getting smaller
Yamato stopped making 1/48 Macross and went to 1/60, more and more action figures are going to the 3 3/4" scale, now this.

Bumblebee becomes an Alternity. What an honor! For someone like him to be endowed with such a tremendous amount of power and ability is quite an accomplishment! Way to go, Bee! :APPLAUSE: :APPLAUSE: :APPLAUSE: ;)^


Now if only Optimus Primal, BW Dinobot, and TFA Prowl can be granted the same honor...

It's a strange world where Bumblebee no longer transforms into a VW beetle but Donald Duck does.

I too wish they kept them at Alt/BT scale, but I'd be a lot more okay with the size if they weren't practically the same price as BTs anyhow...

Happy to see the BB fig looks nothing like the other two, though...

On a new shelf? I've got movie shelves, RiD shelves, G1 shelves, soon I'll have Alternity shelves.

I like the choice of car for Bee and am glad the transformation will be totally new but he does look a bit stumpy and not really the same style as the other two. And having Prime and Megs the same size as Bee is a bit weird. I really hope they release a unique Decep next.

I haven't gotten any Alternity yet but now may have to start, this Bumblebee looks freakin' awesome.

Actually all 3 items look cool to me, it's about time they issued Rumble and Frenzy together (and that way, we can choose for ourselves which figure is which!)

I saw there were some newer members posting in this thread, welcome to the site!

Check this out when you can!

Donald Duck turns into Herbie the Love Bug? What does Alternity Bumblebee turn into? I wish Donald and BB acould trade alt modes so we could finally get a true new G1 Bumblebee.

So are the alternity fgures Die cast metal? I find it hard to swallow paying 50 bucks for a deluxe class size fig.. Does it comes with grilled cheese sammiches?
