    im new to collecting transformers in my adult life so whenever these came out i missed it.

    at the risk of setting off a new wave of demand for these figures i just wanted to see if anyone had some cool pics of these lines and maybe some words about their overall quality etc.

    ive looked over the resource listings and got a good sample of info. seems to me id only be interested in autobots. im thinking if they could work in the masterpiece line. i have masterpiece optimus and rodimus.

    any pics you have of them together or with other bots would be great. please explain if you tricked yours out with extra paint apps or reprolabels etc. : )

    im interested in these...

    I have Alternators Hound, and he is my favorite toy. They're rather big (a little bit smaller than the MP line), and they're incredibly, incredibly detailed. Overall, I did not mind it at all that I had to shell out $100 for him.

    Haha, did my pic give you the itch CV? I hate when I see something cool. Then I am like, great, there goes another $300-500. BTW, you can probably find all your figs listed there for around $350.

    yeah man its your fault!

    can you post those pics here again. i want a look at that prowl again.

    did he have shoulder missiles? is the best way to make him to get the binaltech alert and the alternators prowl? then just add repro labels? im guessing the head and shoulder missiles come from the alternators prowl. does he need/did you paint him at all?

    It's actually in my collection thread:
    [​IMG]

    I took his sholder missle and gave it to Jazz. The shoulder missles are actually the Binal Tech Arming Parts. Good luck find those though. They are hard as shit to find.

    As for how to make him, yeah, like you said, get Binaltech Alert and Altrenators Prowl. There is a little screw and you just switch the heads. Get Some Reprolables and you are set. If you google Alternators Prowl Head Swap you should get some good pics.

    I found this with that search:

    As for Paint, you don;t have to paint him. The stickers pretty much cover up what needs to be covered, However it does look good painted if you so chose.

    Alternators are by far THE best TF line in my opinion. Great Molds, albeit reused over and over again. Great value at retail. and I've repainted of 50 (Ive got 12 or so waiting) of them so I've gotten a ton of reuses

    The thing I like best about them is how close they look to their G1 counterparts:

    I have to say I absolutely LOVE my Shockwave and v2 Ravage. Alternators Shockwave is one of my all-time favorite toys.

    The alternators was a really cool line. It came out back when I was a teenager. I wish they would come out again so I can purchase them all now that I'm making money :)
