    Although it is to be expected, the Alternity line just went one further with a recolor of the just released Alternity A-04 Starscream & Skywarp, now added to the list is Alternity A-04 Thundercracker! Preorders up now, set for an October release!

    and drum roll please...

    Additionally based on fan response, Takara/Tomy will do a second wave of A-01 Alternity Convoy Vibrant Red Version! Preorders up at TFsource (and everywhere else - I think :D ), with a late October release. Great news for those that missed the first run!

    oooo!

    If Thundercracker actually has the same head as Skywarp in a blue deco, I might have to go with that! I love that the shoop on TFsource still shows a purple shadow.

    Great, I hope the blue on the pic at TFsource is close to what we'll get, it looks awesome! Though I thought they where staying with real car color, and there's no blue of that kind for this car.

    Is it real? Not that I'm distrusting TFSource but I sure would like to know if any other source was aware of this.

    we can at least speculate, they posted this on their facebook so i relayed it over here

    what they said:
    "Although it is to be expected, the Alternity line just went one further with a recolor of the just released Alternity A-04 Starscream & Skywarp, now added to the list is Alternity A-04 Thundercracker! Preorders up now, set for an October release!"

    That's the best paint job I've seen on the mold, but I'm still unsure if I'll purchase it.

    I have my doubts.


    SS and SW were barely released.A ploy to sell the other 2 maybe after mixed reviews?

    IF there was a Thundercracker someone would have seen/heard something over the past few months.

    actually, IMO, this move should be seen as "the sky is blue but it will turn black at night" kind of move :D

    Obvious repaint choice. I want to see a black repaint though.

    Oh and good for the re-release of red Convoy, power to the fans

    Sweet. I'll stick with just Screamer, but I love seeing the main Seeker trio completed.

    Animated Blackout Preorder BACK @ TFSource

    I wouldn't typically post this to 'News', but this guy seems in high enough demand that maybe it's warranted. If not, maybe this could be moved to the 'Toys thread' or whatever.

    Preorder HERE!

    Also, Alternity A-01 - Nissan GT-R - Convoy - Vibrant Red Version is back up for pre-order as well (I think this has already been reported)

    Preorder HERE!

    It's a photoshop, the reflection is still Skywarp purple. Whether TT mocked it up or TF Source i don't know
    As you say, there is no blue so, unless they just ditch the trend of using only actual colours i'm doubting it'll look like that.
