    Uh oh.. looks like the smaller scale figure may be creating some QC issues.... bummer.

    Is this final? Or just some mistakes?

    If it's real, that sucks. That's the second time now

    Yep, I suspected as much. Remember how we were complaining about paint chipping on Binaltechs? Imagine how much paint will chip on these Alternity toys?

    I see this as good news.

    At least they are doing something about QC on these figures. I imagine if they just released them on time with QC problems, the fans would be whinging about them being released too early and with a lack of quality control.

    This delay may end up meaning that the smaller scale of these figures does not work well with the die cast and paint combination of the line. If that is the case, I am reluctant to actually buy any until I hear some good feedback on them.

    Well, they are so small that maybe the paint will chip off all at once...

    I'd rather they delay it now rather than release it with QC problems.

    *thinks of Reverse-boob Thundercracker*

    Which Alternity Prime are you folks getting? Red or silver? I'm holding off my decision until I see both side-by-side, however I am leaning towards the red/white/blue version.

    Maybe it's being held back due to a design flaw, like making Optimus Prime car.

    Big deal, I could care less lol, this is just as bad as turning Prime into a shoe.


    OPTIMUS PRIME is a Legendary Cultural Icon, and....He's a SEMI not a small Sports Car.
