    Is this some joke I'm not in on?

    I'm not that scholarly with alternator designs so no idea if this mold has a precedent.

    I'm still hoping that his pile driver arms can rotate and reveal regular robot arms...

    Thanks for the clarification... is it a totally new car? or a retooled old mold?

    Before the pics of his robot mode was release on the Wal-mart web site there was another pic of him. It was only art work of his robot mode next to a Civic, it looks a fair bit different, but still rather cool. you can see it if you follow this link:

    Man it seems like this pic has been out for about a year. I don't remember any other transformer that had a completed leaked pic with such a long wait before it was actually released.

    Alternator Rumble is going to be the next Alternator, but he will not come out until Jan 2007.

    As for the colors, remember, wasn't the original rumble toy black and red, while Frenzy ended up being blue? Of course, that pic may be the Frenzy repaint since Hasbro is planning to do both characters. And the pile drivers are his only arms, which doesn't matter, they are awesome.
