    Are these supposed to be alternators knock-offs (as in not bootlegs, but knocked-off design style)?

    I'm stumped, some help here please. My mind just went *chrckct...poof*.

    They are from China. I'm not sure where else they can be bought. I've been looking.

    I believe they were out before the Alternators.

    That would be very surprising. I call Photoshop on all of them (it's pretty obvious too just by looking at the pictures)

    The first one's robot mode is a combination of upper-half Alt/BT Mazda and lower half ALT/BT Dodge Ram.

    The second one is a mold copy of Alt/BT Mirage/Hot Rod

    The third one's robot mode is a combination of upper-half Alt/BT Corvette and lower half ALT/BT Mazda. Those 2 parts transform in the back-end in the original molds, so that would create a very interesting car mode...

    The last one seems like a mold copy of Movie CC Bumblebee.

    They are not photoshopped.
    Just because you have never heard of something doesn't mean they aren't real. :crazy:  :rolleyes:

    And yet, even the article only references those images.

    They simply pulled a Citroen-like advertising campaign.

    p.s. OrionPrime: I see what you did there :D

    Sorry but they are photoshopped. Also look at the date of the blog Jul 11, 2007 22:28. Funny no one has seen these for sale and no other information has been posted.

    I know. I emailed the site, since they wrote the article, they should know.

    I'd like to buy them. If they aren't real then someone needs to make them.

    they are OBVIOUS photoshops, especially the second, since that IS the Rodimus mold with chopped up car pieces pasted on it, there's NO WAY they can use the GT mold and make it into a mini-van/SUV looking thing with THAT LITTLE added kibble, it's just not possible. And the last one is Ultimate bumblebee with the front of the car next to it + Alt Rodimus' head photoshopped one (the doors are exact flips of the same imge, the front end "chest" is off angle, etc.). In fact, looking at all these for more than a split second it should be VERY obvious they're all photoshops.

    Again with the deceiving topic titles.
    I thought this was going to about Transformers with Alt modes representing the Great Wall.

    They are clearly digibashes. Some of them aren't that bad, but they are all too obvious to believe. On a side note, a TF that transforms into a section of the GWoC would be interesting (Metroplex maybe?).

    ?

    So yeah. Shopped, not well, blatantly cut and paste of other alts. I don't think there's much else to be said. Unless it's about pie. Mmmm, pie.
