Remember back in June when we brought you word that Takara's Alternity line would be continuing with a series of repaints: Goldbug, Dai Atlas, Banzaitron, and Galvatron? Site sponsor Robotkingdom has posted images of the first two from that list, Alternity Goldbug and Dai Atlas. These figures are repaints of Alternity Bumble and Convoy respectively. While these images appear to be straight repaints, the descriptions state they will both receive new head molds. Check out the images of the latest two members of the Alternity line below.

I like the way Dai Atlas looks in car mode. Goldbug is ok.

Yay for more Alternity but Dai Atlas should have been a new mold.

...or Dai Atlas should at least had a new head. Banzaitron will probably be the only one I end up nabbing or.. none of them at all.

I know Dai Atlas.

I know his ways and his mannerisms. That thing is no Dai Atlas.

If I should meet it on the field of battle, it shall be counting the cost.

This reminds me of that last batch of Binaltech that came out in 2008... Super crappy. I clicked this thinking "Dai Atlas anything should cool!", but that's just not working for me. Goldbug ain't nothing special either.

Thinking about it more, Dai Atlas should have used the Questor mold.

goldbug looks cool though as stated before, he is missing the face plate, and Dai Atlas, again as stated before, beyond dissapointing

*sigh* Is actually reading the news post too much of a hassle? It reads that:

Dai Atlas and Goldbug will receive new head molds

Honestly I cant wait to see those.

Both of these figures are pretty sad. Alternity Dai Atlas is especially disappointing because I was expecting so much more from that toy. From the looks of it, they would have been better off passing it off as a Diaclone Prime or something. Also, I could have sworn I read somewhere that they were all getting new head molds. I don't remember which characters, but aren't we supposed to be getting 2 more Alternity repaints/remolds as well? One using the Seeker mold and the other using Megatron's?

Edit: I feel pretty dumb now...I just read that they have new head molds. This was one of the cases where I looked at the pics, got angry, and just posted based on that alone. Maybe with a new head that Dai Atlas will look a bit better.

You bet: Starscream as Banzaitron and I don't remember who Megatron will be retooled into.
