Not too shabby looking. The seats that turn into weapons are a nice touch.

Shame I won't be buying any of these. I'm focusing on Universe and Classics at the moment.

Now these look nice. Just a pity it's yet another bloody Convoy.

You know, I hate to say it but these are the first photos that make me like this less. I was on the fence before but now it's a no from me. The robot mode is OK-very movie like IMO (very Bumblebee)-but the alt mode, at least in these pictures, is a mess. The broken up lines of the GT-R remind me of movie Stockade or Universe/C2.0 Ironhide.

No matter how much diecast they put into him, this is a 20-25 dollar figure tops.

Still wondering if Hasbro will do all plastic versions of these. Looks nice, but I've got no pressing need for diecast.

Well, the alt. mode looks like the everyday alternator, but it's a good point for such a small figure; and the bot mode looks awesome (except head)

It's only weapons are those arm-guns... meh, where are the G1 times, when the figures had more weapons than hands? I cry for rocket launchers, guns and swords for every robot!

True. Why can't they start with figure homages like Bludgeon, Shockwave, Overlord, or Fort. Max?

Because they want people to buy them.

I'd love to buy updates on Bludgeon, Shockwave, Overlord, as well as many others we've not seen for some time.

And while I'm usually one to not like/care for a Prime or Convoy outside of a hoss big rig or fire truck, this fella is win. I totally plan to acquire him.

Until Jazz or a really kick-butt mold is introduced, I'll be passing on Alternity.

Shame the car mode doesnt fit together well but maybe its just a painted proto.

I'd rather they had continued with the BT line.

Looks good in die cast, I'll take shiny and reflective paint over boring plastic any day.

I'd buy both! IMHO, Universe Sunstreaker should have been full die cast. What good is a toy if you can't kill someone with it?

At last !!! A picture of the red Alternity Convoy and what a beauty !!!

I was skeptical of buying these because of the small scale and the Silver didn't do it for me but the red .... wow .... has to be one of the most good looking convoys of the past couple of years. That's how you celebrate a anniversary :grin:

I think the blue and red one is NICE! I'm giving them a try. :D

Both of these are awsome looking. I find myself likeing the silver version better, you could almost pass it off as a different character than Prime.. Magnus anyone?
If I see one of these I might splurge and grab it.

The red one looks slick. Thats the one I'd probably get. I really wish these were 1:24 scale.

I'm not to fond of the red convoy! The silver sits better with that particular mold design. I do have to agree I wish it was a different character. Not that I dislike Optimus it's just Optimus is supposed to be a truck! I didn't even like the alternator Optimus simply for the fact that my Masterpiece just fits that much better with the rest of my Alternators. I do on the other hand love Nemesis Prime's Alternator vehicle and robot mode. It just fits better IMO. I will still pick these up though.

That's pretty much what I'm gonna do. I got the Silver one on pre-order. He was NEVER gonna be a prime in my collection. Probably have him run his own crew and have Drift with him. I'm definitely loving his looks. Yeah, his alt mode has a lot of exposed lines, but he a TF, it's kinda expected sometimes. For me, it's total WIN.
