    I'm less psyched for the GT-R now since 1)it's not really Binaltech, 2) it's going to be Convoy yet again and 3) it has the tired old hood as chest, doors as wings, rear as feet transformation scheme.

    The deluxe sized Alternity bot interests me, but why does he have a Binaltech price tag at BBTS? Anyway I preordered him to go with my Classics/Universe bots.

    Powerglide's deco has just made me decide which version of him I'll be getting, he's absolutely gorgeous!!:drool:

    Is it just me, or is the GT-R smaller than previous Binaltech/Alternator toys? Looking at the one picture, his head isn't much higher than Movie Bumblebee's.

    oh, cancelling my preorder for the GTr then since it's not BT. Plus it looks like crud in bot mode.

    Well after seeing the other threads it is a bit of a bummer the GT-R is another convoy, i wonder what the rest of this new line is going to be like?

    Ahh, that makes sense... the Alternity line must be the smaller "deluxe-sized Binaltechs" that were rumored a while back. Interesting. I have mixed feelings about that. On one hand I was looking forward to having more BT's in new molds. On the other hand, it looks like these could be shoehorned into either the movie or universe lines. I like the bulky aesthetic of it, it will be interesting to see what the deal is with this line.

    Powerglide is really just a mirror image of the U.S. version, eh? Red with white highlights instead of the other way around. Well, it's a no-brainer that I'll get them both, though I think I would prefer the Takara version in a deeper shade of red and without the white striping.

    Pleased to see all that chrome on Sunstreaker's spoiler and intakes, that looks great.

    MP Thundercracker looks beautiful.

    Oh, and I don't know what this thing is, but it's awesome. :)

    I'll make this short.

    Thundercracker: DO WANT.

    Henkei: DO NOT WANT.

    GTR: DO WANT.

    Encore: DO WANT.

    So Transformers Alternity sounds interesting, but 4700 yen for a Deluxe is pricy. Given the exchange rate, it be $45....wow. I can understand the price for a voyager-sized Binaltech, but not a deluxe-sized one.

    Masterpiece Thundercracker looks awesome. Can't wait for November.

    Universe Henkei looks good. Can't wait to get them, but I fear Ultras will be quite expensive.

    Since it's not Binaltech but a new line, I would have rather they made it Bluestreak since it already follows the classic transformation scheme of the Datsun bros and the signature/showroom color of the GT-R would have fit nicely as well. Alas, Convoy is a guaranteed seller so that is what we're going to get from TakaraTomy.

    Henkei Sunstreaker is looking sharp with the chrome and deep yellow paint job.

    Why would they do that though seeing as how there's a Henkei version?

    I swear I never was a fan of the chrome but lookign at those henkei pics, the chrome works really well with Prowl and sunstreaker, although the chrome guns is a bit much. That ALterny thing looks cool, so is he like a small binaltech or something?

    Damn it all. I thought it was odd at first when the GT-R went up for a lower than expected pre-order.

    Maybe I'll keep the red preorder, just because it DOES look pretty slick, but I'm disappointed that it's not a proper BT. Disappointed!

    1) Is anyone sure the exact scale of "Alternity?"
    2) Is that name a deliberate play on the American "Alternators?" Seems unlikely.
    3) Is this line planned to jive with the already kinda fanwankish Binaltech continuity? I'd love to see how they write in that shortly after Arcee showed up, Convoy suddenly turned into a Nissan and got really short. We're talking about a storyline so gratuitous it won't even let VARIANTS go without convoluted in-universe explanations, after all.

    Looking forward to Thundercracker-- we can all have our 4-seeker set, and they can move on to something new.
