    I'd love a Cadilac. That's what Alt's need is more variety in Vehicle Style...

    Sweet! So... a new Scion, a Jag, the Honda Civic & a Caddi XLR? Looks like we've got at least another years worth of alts left. I do wonder if the Mustang is a repaint or a rerelease though...

    I'd love to see a Bludgeon Mustang. Fairly certain I've see a Kitbash of one somewhere that was fantastic.

    I give it a maximum of an hour until someone declares this to be the last Alternator ever, and the line as a whole to be over.

    Bludgeon is one of my favorite "lesser" Decepticons, the Alternators is my favorite subline, and the Mustang is one of the better molds. So, that would be totally awesome. Don't really see it happening though...

    Hasbro also made the claim that we'd get no rescue vehicle Alternators... shortly before we got Prowl. A little optimism never hurts... except when it does

    My guess on the Caddy would be Megs or Breakdown.

    yeah, Hasbro's frequently shown a "left hand not knowing (or not wanting to say) what the right hand is doing... I can't imagine a 5 month gap before the next case comes out, especially since they've put out stock pics of Rumble.

    As usual, I'll just wait and see. No use getting my/our hopes up only to be disappointed (yet again, curse you, NP!).

    Aside from what the Hasbro pannel said at SDCC... well, it's not the first time they've said one thing and than a couple months later the opposite was true. Hell, according to their own website the Classics line isn't supposed to be out until November, but we know that BBTS is getting them in next month! I seriously doubt that BBTS is going to get them two months ahead of time. Also, we've seen way too many upcoming Alt listings in Wal-Marts computers... sure, we may not see some of them until next year, but I'd say that the Cadillac and the Civic are probably going to be out by at least December.

    Come on guys! A little optimism here!
