    OK so if Alternators is made by Hasbro, and Binaltech & Alternity are made by Takara, what is the difference between Binaltech & Alternity?

    Binaltechs are (obviously) the size of Alternators (around Voyager class size), Alternities are much smaller (deluxe size).

    Scale for one. Alternity is almost a deluxe.

    The Alternity also used some of the automatic transformation type features we saw in the 2007 Movie, Universe, and Reveal the Shield lines.

    More or less, although "scale" is less of a priority with Human Alliance. Even in vehicle mode, Skids is certainly not in scale with Bumblebee.

    Also, Binaltech has metal and plastic parts. Alternators are all plastic. You probably already knew that but just throwing it out there.

    Alternity figures also toss out the notion of keeping vehicle body free of breaks and panel lines. They also seem to forebear some of the more complex and clever transformation ideas that have been rolling out the more recent deluxe figure releases.
