    Hi guys. If/when Alternators returns, what probable vehicles should they use.

    The only one I can think of is Blaster-Kia Soul.

    I wouldn't mind seeing Alternator versions of the movie character vehicles. Not necessarily as the movie characters, just the movie vehicles in Alt style & scale.

    Also some supercars might be nice. Perhaps a Lamborghini Reventon as Breakdown and a Veyron as Blurr?

    Alternity has replaced it. Alternators is dead and gone

    I'd hope to never see Alts on shelves again outside of maybe store exclusives (albeit done right, none of this Ravage/Rumble "only certain people can find them" stuff). Distribution was always just outright terrible and it made tracking them all down a serious pain.

    Yup, I agree.

    I wouldn't mind a Frenzy to go with Rumble, but outside of that, let dead dogs die.

    ^true, distrobution of these things sucked, but done right, there's a few I'd like to see still. I think they need to up the size and do Ironhide, Trailbreaker, even Grapple would be cool. But, like I said, they'd still need to be 1:24 scale, so a larger and *sigh* higher priced toy.

    I also don't really expect the line to come back, BTW

    A store exclusive every once in a while might be nice, but new molds are unlikely.

    I just hope that there's always an extremely detailed, uber-engineered, collector-focused line in existence, ala Binaltech, Alternators, Masterpiece, or Alternity. These are what keep me tied to the franchise year after year, even when the current mainline doesn't do it for me.

    Megatron as a highly-detailed, realistically molded M1 Abrams tank. None of this car altmode nonsense for him.
