    Haven't seen those before (methinks)

    Hmm, even in red and blue, I'm not getting much of a 'Convoy' vibe from that thing.

    Also, the car mode is kinda riddled with ugly seams (not a Universe Ironhide level, but not that far away)

    Wow, the Red n' Blue is really silly looking on that mold.

    The silver version gives me a movie protoform Prime vibe.

    Call me crazy but I love the Silver version so much more than the Vibrant Red variant. Makes me want to go buy a GTR for real :lol 

    I'll be getting both versions anyway, so.. :eek:

    Bad Design Decisions R Us: Those panels in front of his shouldlers look like they will scrape the sides of the fenders when you move his arms.

    Now, if he was painted plastic, there would not be a problem (this sort of paint adheres to plastic better than metal).

    I love the red GT-R, but the robot mode looks awful. Yikes.

    Those are beautiful. I be ordering both colors the first chance I get. I love the blue on it. These are the best pics I've seen so far. First time I noticed his autobot insignia belt buckle, lol.

    Is this going to be a new line or a one-off? Because, if it's a new line, shouldn't we kinda be seeing or hearing of more by now? As it is, this is the only one we've heard of in, what, 6 months?

    Least, trolling the news forum for ages hasn't seen anything come up when I've been looking, seeing as I love the Alt styling of toys.

    I really like how the middle section of the front of the car vanishes while the ones on either side close together.

    Also, Silver Alternity is TOTALLY Boombox.

    We currently assume it's a one-off.

    It's supposedly also a Takara-only thing, with no Hasbro input whatsoever.

    I personally really like the red. I'll be going with that version.
    Can't wait for this figure.

    Well I have a handful of each pre-ordered and after seeing these pics, I am considering dropping them.

    Don't get me wrong, I like Binaltech and was keen to get these based on the assumption that the line was a continuation of the Binaltech line. But those seams in Alt. mode look horrid and the robot mode isn't much better. That coupled with the fact that they are a smaller scale than Binaltech and therefore will be a bugger for my fat fingers means that I am not sure whether to get them or not now :( 

    Edit: Do we know the actual release date for them yet? Last I heard it was after the new year.

    Looks great in silver

    The Prime one's not bad, but the blacks throw it off a bit
