    Wow, never appreciated just how small Alternity Convoy really is. It's looks smaller than a Deluxe!

    That one doesn't look like it has Convoy's head, I see a face.

    Where allternators/binaltech were
    1/24th actual size, this is 1/32.
    It does look smaller than deluxe.
    Way to expensive for that small a fig.

    Definitely out of control price wise for its size. Unfortunately it is G1 scale which is what I have always wanted, and will buy them no matter what.

    Nice, but nowhere near worth the price tag. Way too small for me to justify dropping so much on something.

    Looks about the same size as other deluxes.

    What about those TINY animated deluxe cars like Jazz and Prowl?

    Just think of it this way, it is more than twice as much but it doesn't look like ass like the new Classics toys :p

    I wouldn't be surprised if at least one of the colors gets a Hasbro release at some point next year.

    Idle speculation of course.

    I'm guessing the silver GTR is Megs while the red one is Convoy

    Have got both colours on pre-order and cannot wait for them to ship.

    Do we know if the story for Alternity continues on from the Binaltech story?

    I noticed that the story shown on the box of Binaltech Prime the other day was the fourth part of the 'Unfinished Business' story that started with Binaltech Bluestreak and continued through Meister and Arcee. It got me wondering if something in the Binaltech Prime story links it into the Alternity story.

    Anyone got a clue?

    Seriously, for the 20th time, no.

    Red = Convoy's color
    Silver = Nissan's color

    Just like BT Meister, Prowl and Tracks before him.

    BTW, note from the image that it's designated as "A-01", suggesting Alternity is more than a one-shot, single figure deal.

    People got over the animal thing, they got over the long-nosed truck thing, they got over the firetruck thing. They'll get over the car thing.
