    Has there been any word about an American release of a Skids repaint in the Alternator line? I know they released one as part of the Asterix line in Japan, but the paint job they have for Skids here in the US is pretty crap, and I was hoping they'd come out with something else.

    Next Alternator releases are Rumble and Ravage in the same wave, and then it's on hiatus... There were listings for a new Scion but with Camshaft out I doubt it would have been BTA Broadblast. As it stands, looks like we're only getting Skids, which is probably a good thing, considering how bad of a shelf warmer he was.

    The new Ravage and Rumble are the last we will get for awhile. It is possible that the line could be continued after the movie but we don't know right now. Some have said the line is dead but I'm not sure if that is true either.

    Shelfwarmer because of the ugly flames. BT Skids rock.

    if the line does come back and the scheduled Scion repaint comes with it, I really hope it's Ironhide

    They haven't done Mirage either, and you know everyone's going to want a Frenzy repaint of Rumble, so I figure there's a good chance for at least one more wave. Even if it is an all repaint wave.

    It would be cool to get a repaint of Skids. I think that mold is one of the coolest of the line. I also think that his paint job rocks too.

    Yeah. We haven't gotten repaints of Mirage, Skids, or a widespread release of an Alt. Prime repaint. Plus, I haven't seen any repaint plans for Rumble or Ravage either. There are some cool possibilities for most of those guys.

    Prime to Motormaster/Kup/Hoist/Ironhide
    Skids to Ironhide/Ratchet
    Mirage to Hot Rod/Drag Strip/Brakedown/Wildrider
    Rumble to Frenzy (he'd need hands, though)
    Ravage to Steeljaw

    Personally I would love to see The Scion repainted as Blaster or Perceptor. But time will tell if the line will get picked back up.

    I'd go for the Scion repaint if it were Perceptor...I never saw the resemblance to Blaster, and it's close to ironhide, but IMO Perceptor is the closest resemblance to the existing head sculpt.

    Perceptor would work pretty well, but I'd rather have Ironhide just because it's a much more important character (people talk about about wanting to get the entire 84 line-up in Alts, and they constantly talk about Trailbreaker, but I think Ironhide is better)

    I'd prefer Ironhide as something other than a minivan. That'd be like making Mirage a kart racer.
