    A couple of scans from the latest issue of Figure Oh!

    - Alternity Convoy detailing

    - Encore 13 and 14 will sport blue eyes

    - E-hobby exclusive reissue Sunstorm and black Megatron

    - Henkei Cheetas and Hound (apparently these are the Hasbro versions and not in final Henkei colors)

    - Exile iPod Convoy

    - Disney Label was also featured but scans are already available in this thread

    Alternity Optimus Prime does look pretty good. If he somehow comes over here via Hasbro, I'll probably get him. I really like the headsculpt on him. On a side note, I'm kinda surprised we really haven't seen anything for Drift yet. He'll probably be in one of the last major waves for the Universe line before it gets phased out to just store exclusives.

    It works for some, but not others, I must admit, I think Trailbreaker and Hoist both count as 'others'.

    Gotta say, the highlight for me in those pics is the Galvatron/Starscream artwork. That's top-notch stuff.

    I think I agree. It's not that I prefer the red - I don't - but this bright baby blue sure ain't doing it either. Would be nice if, on Trailbreaker, it was a dark blue transparent visor instead.

    Is that Ironhide who Screamer is fighting? Looks like his head.

    And agreed on the artwork. Reminds me of some good ol' Dreamwave era TF art.

    I like the blue eyes as it's different from the original and previous reissues. I wished Hoist would have had a gray head as well, but at least they did this.

    The iPod convoy... is that just the G1 one with a new trailer? Because the head looks like a new sculpt if it is...

    I believe all of the iPod Convoys have a new head sculpt. The rest of the figure is (as far as I know) unchanged from G1 Convoy.

    It's a repaint of the Music Label iPod Convoy, done for a Japanese band I believe.
    And IMO it looks absolutely horrible. I love the mould dearly (and have it a LOT of times as a consequence), but this repaint is an easy pass.

    Whats sad though, is Hasbro should have done with the 25th Optimus, what Takara did with the G1 colored ipod Convoy; fully painted, the new head, etc.

    Alternity!!!!!!

    I wish Takara would give a clue as to what the future of this line is. I love the figures, they seem to be a binaltech with the newer toy line details in them. but they are expensive and I want to start a line that will continue with all the characters, I am tired of restarting a collection because the line didn't finish.

    I think I will wait until I see the line before I start to purchase any of them. I also think If we all did this takara might give us a little more info on a line when releasing it.

    Ditto. I am glad I got these on pre-order. I am a big fan of the Alternators figs and I'm really glad to see a continuation of the "real" car alt-modes in a line. It seems odd to start up a new line and not just continue with Alternators, but whatever. If that's what they need as an excuse for the smaller scale then so be it. Hopefully the photo-shopping isn't fooling us too much.

    I especially dig the "tripod" style feet that they seem to have.

    Wow, these are the first pics I've seen that make Cheetor look good. Hooray for good toy posing.

    OK, I'm going to use my Japanese translation and point out that according to the text accompanying that drawing, it's actually Skywarp there not Starscream (not that you can tell without color) and yes it is Ironhide that he's fighting... or rather boxing. According to the text, Skywarp and Ironhide have decided to settle their differences with a fair boxing style fight and Skywarp is musing to himself that he's glad Starscream isn't there as he's preferring the fair fight as opposed to Screamer's treachery. Unfortunately, Megatron isn't pleased with the whole "fair fight" and uses a horde of Energon to crash the fight... as Galvatron!

    Well, there we have it again. Ever need Japanese translations I'm your man. :D
