    How would 1:24 Ironhide and Ratchet work out to coincide (at least partially) with their movie forms?

    Forgive me, but I like the clear windows, moving steering wheels, linked steering axles, opening hoods with engines - basically replica car qualities in the Alternators.

    Ratchet is a Hummer.

    Ironhide is a GMC Topkick.

    These are going to be a lot larger than the current deluxe toys that are virtually the same size as Wheeljack and Mirage Alternators in one picture I saw of them all together.

    Would a $30 price point for Deluxe Alternators work?

    Would a $50 cheaper version for Basic MPEs work?

    Do you think we'll get them?

    While we're at it, how will Bonecrusher, Brawl, and Blackout work?

    they might make Alt bumblebee as a '08 camaro and maybe even another Alt jazz(meister) as the solstice. and they could easily do Alt barricade since they already have the mustang mold. ratchet is a distant possibility since he'd be around the length of Alt prime though bulkier, but i doubt they'd do ironhide (too big). and certainly they wouldn't do any of the decepticons (an Alt blackout would be 3.3 feet long)....

    Alternators was a line of sports cars with one exception: Prime. You cant put those huge trucks in there.

    Alternators is an old line of G1 characters. Even if the line WASN'T over already, movie != G1
