It's pretty sad when die cast knockoffs have better decos than real Alternators

    Wow.... I mean, there's no questioning the tackiness of most of those, but.... I might have to buy one or two of those.

    Not bad.... could use a few grunts from my Decepticon army. A few of those could pass for Stunticons.

    I like the white jeep, and the ones with the flames but the others are kinda tacky.. Red and White viper is ok as well.

    well these are cheap quality knock offs afterall - and cheesy decals

    but the point being that knock offs have so much better decos than the parent company produces!

    maybe partly due to the fact that this company didn't need to invest the cost to design the original product.

    But still, we can't help but expect so much more from HasTakTomy with Alternators repaints

    So does no-one remember about those things? Maz even used to have a thread here that listed all versions to date at one point.
