    I don't believe we've seen this yet, have we? Courtesy of Swift and Quez over on TFWIKI.Net, this is "From Here to Alternity":

    Check out the use of the Fun Publications Timelines continuity identifier!

    Sadly, there is a Vancouver in Washington state. Vancouver BC is still the cooler version, and TFs know it. :D

    So... now the Transformers have gone D&D huh? This pretty much reads like something out of the Deities and Demigods handbook...

    Could be interesting if it isn't overdone...

    All I understood was parts about one Silver Convoy simply racing around a racetrack while another became a different Silver Convoy, then the gate to hell opened up and some beast very similar to the one in "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" showed up and some interdimentional fight began.

    If I ever get the figure, I'm simply gonna say "He's the TF equivelent to Chuck Norris fused with Mr. T, Optimus Prime, and God" and leave it at that.

    Sounds cool. I might reconsider getting Alternity Convoy then. I was thinking of getting only Megatron.

    It's still an undersized, overpriced, painted hunk of metal.
    Sorry guys, but backstory only goes SO far in determining my purchases.

    I dub thee "Alternity Prime: Mary Sue of the Titaniums."

    Also... "The Auto-Avatars normally transform into the form of a sports car, which is the most efficient method of transportation for using the super-dimensional locomotion of the Timaeus Drive."

    Yeah....

    Man it's gotta suck to put all the effort into a translation just to be rewarded with that. Makes me think of Ralphie using the Little Orphan Annie secret decoder ring just to be told to "be sure to drink your Ovaltine".

    Nice analogy. Although unlike Ralphie, the reward was some story about why this toy has supposed god-like powers, which is minorly better than being told to drink more chocolate milk. Alterenity Convoy's story was also developed by the Japanese, so it's bound to not make sense at some points.

    I think its cool that Tomy tries to keep coming up with a new fiction for each series of toys, but these stories are just getting to be really stupid with all the super-dimensional race tracks and lolicon girls getting raped.

    I'm amazed TakaraTomy took the continuity classification system that was created for the Fun Publications Transformers Club magazine and incorporated it into their side of Transformers.

    The bit I love to see:

    The bit I don't like so much:


    Seriously, the multiverse is big enough, so I'm just gonna pretend the figures represent something entirely different, and leave it at that.


    And yeah, tough luck on Vancouver, WA!

    Yeah, this one's strictly for the turbonerds.

    I do like Vancouver, America. That the same geography from Masterforce?
