    Hawt!

    Looks like the Ultimate Metal Silver version will have a monotone colored bot mode and the Vibrant Red version will have the traditional blue Convoy bot mode parts.

    Bought!

    I love the concept for Alternity, of alternator like figs in 1/32 scale. I just don't see Prime as a silver sports car. I'll also say that having seen that new GTR in a color besides silver, silver is not a flattering color on it.

    Alternity Prime's head looks an awefull lot like TFW's mascot. The helmet area is different, but other than that, it looks really close.

    Looks like you could pretty much call the Silver Convoy whatever you want, if you don't like sportscar convoys. (you could do that regardless, but there's degrees of self-denial and plausibility here. :)  )

    Orange iPod Convoy? - OK now it's gettin' sad.

    TakaraTomy will also be releasing a color variant in "Vibrant Red" for the TF traditionalist.

    Still slightly too vague to really see the head, but it seems it's somewhere between cartoon Prime and movie Prime in terms of realism? Looks interesting!

    Bot looks cool, but like Greyryder said, don't really see Prime as a sports car. The Dodge pickup in Alternators was already smaller than a truck, but now it becomes even more obvious they're just using Prime to sell more of it...

    Still, handsome bot!

    Ok, I'm sold on Alternity Convoy, he doesn't look too much like "Optimus Prime" in robot mode and is a very nice blend of movie and binaltech type designs.

    Masterpiece Thundercracker is beautiful, and I can't wait to have all three seekers on my shelf, I just hope he's not too limited in number because I'm probably not going to be able to get one right away.

    He almost looks like a more detailed version of Universe Silverstreak.

    The new deco for Music Label Convoy appears to be some sort of "crossover" with a J-Pop band named Exile.

    The back ruined it for me. Sounds stupid (I'll get those messages.) but it's enough to say pass for me.

    So far, their offerings this year have been a total meh.

    Looks like a special display, each Henkei toy has their G1 counterpart there. I probably wouldn't read into it any more than that.

    The back of the robot is HORRIBLE. Kibble fest deluxe. But the front looks so damned good, I know I'm going to get it. I'll wait till I see the red version though.

    Has there been any word about any release of the Alternity figure(s) outside of Japan?
