    Who displays their Alternity's with their Alternators? I know that the Alternity's are smaller, but I'm only interested in Bumblebee and Cliffjumper in this series. Reason being, is there really aren't any for the Alternator series and it would be nice to have them together.

    I'm thinking that since the original G1 Bumblebee and Cliffjumper figures were much smaller than the regular G1 Autobots, then the Alternity Bumblebee might just fit in well with the Alternator series.

    Also, other than colors, what's the difference between Bumble and Cliff? Heads should be different, right? But, I can't see that in the pictures. All I see is one is red and one is yellow.

    What you think?

    I dont like the size difference in alt or robot form. I tried displaying a few together and hated it. I dont own bb and cliff is in storage so i'm not able to check for differences.

    Alternity CJ definitely has a unique head sculpt, because people were replacing Classics CJ's head with it for a while.

    The Disney Label Donald Duck?

    Or the concept picture of Alternity Bumblebee that is just an early image of what was ultimately released?

    Bumblebee and Cliffjumper fit pretty well with the other Alternators/Binaltech if you desire to display them together.

    IMO alternity bee and cliff = closest thing to an mp bee and cliff. but they work with alternators too.

    Ha! No, the prototype of A-Bumblebee, looks awesome, and thankyou for the pics of your Alternity and Alternators. Thats exactly what I had in mind!

    Although I suspect in car mode it'll probably look way off, but bot-mode looks dead on!

    the scale in car mode is a little hard to believe ;lol cliff and Bumble are about modern deluxe car sized while alternators were more sort of voyager scale.

    Alternity CJ and Bumblebee look great next to their Alternator and Binaltech counterparts. Their bulging chest piece is kind of a turn off but otherwise the size and ascetics match pretty well.

    I thought we guy's liked bulging chests? LOL!

    The picture above convinced me to purchase the pair of them off ebay. Hopefully I'll get'em by next weekend. Since my Alternators never sold and I'm off again collecting Masterpieces, I thought what the hell.

    I'm a G1 Junkie, but got bored with the G1 toy's. So, the MP's and Alt's are a good substitute. And the WST's are just so cute.
    Anyway thank's for the help guy's!

    man, those molds look so horrible to me compared to ALts/BTs.
    Never got the love for the Alternity line...

    I don't display them together but I can definitely see how they kinda fit. Personally I'm hoping that the repaints we'll be seeing soon give the line a new lease of life.

    I don't own any, and if I did they would NOT be displayed with my Alts/BTs. Alts/BTs are the main TF line we've gotten that's scaled. Other TF lines, I'm not a scale nut with. This one I am.

    Also, I am a bit bitter at Alternity for robbing me of the 350Z and Skyline I so desperately want at 1:24 as TFs. I can make my own, but TakaraTOMY could have saved me a LOT of work.
