    Got some pics of Alternators Mirage right here for you:

    Mirage - Alternators Binaltech Autobots - TFW2005.COM

    As far as getting them goes, do you like the styles they are designed in? Mirage is an excellent representative of the Alternators series and worth a look, Skyfire or Jetfire if you go for the Classics isn't the best from that series but he still looks nice. Quite a playable little toy.

    classics and henkei skyfires are quite different. the glass on the cockpit(chest) are different sizes and i think the face or helmet are different. Henkei Jetfire/Skyfire looks pretty awesome to me though. I absolutely love it. Its a ton of cash now however.

    Personally I'd get both, if you can afford them. Here's some (quick) pics of Mirage:

    One day I'll build a lightbox... One day...

    Anyway, I don't own Henkei Jetfire, only Classics and he's stowed away right now, but he's also pretty awesome.

    Mirage is alittle tough to pose sometimes...

    I prefer Rodimus...

    Henkia Skyfie is the better deco. But his legs get a little wonky to pose...

    My money is on the Alternators... If the bot looks bad the car is perfect! You cant lose.

    to me alternator mirage is the better bot and alt mode. so he wins. the jetfire mould is awesome but not as awesome as alternators or binaltech.

    You can see the vehicle mode of Rodimus in the gallery link I posted - Rodimus is a red Ford GT for Alternators, flame deco instead of racing stripes on the SDCC exclusive, straight up red for blue colour swap for the Kiss Players version.

    Both have a new head, which has a flip down visor.

    I snapped a couple of pics of Alt Rodimus alongside Masterpiece Rodimus a while back, check them out:

    With Alternators Rodimus Robot 1.jpg - Rodimus Convoy - TFW2005.COM

    With Alternators Rodimus Robot 2.jpg - Rodimus Convoy - TFW2005.COM

    With Alternator Car 2.jpg - Rodimus Convoy - TFW2005.COM

    Note that the silver bit is from the Kiss Players release, I nabbed it at a Botcon for the heck of it.

    As far as I'm concerned Mirage was THE BEST figure to come out the Alternator/Binaltech lines. If you have any interest in the lines, he is a must have.

    When I collected Alts, Mirage was one of my favorites (right up there with Jazz, Ricochet, and Swindle).
