    This thread is for speculating on the next alternity figure.
    Who's it gonna be?

    But most importantly, for me, what's the alt mode gonna be?

    if we look at the current alternity characters you'll see they all turn into Japanese cars, you'll also see that they were arranged in the following order:

    1) Optimus Prime - Nissan GT-R
    2) Megatron - Nissan 370Z
    3) Bumblebee - Suzuki Swift

    You may notice that as the characters are released the cars become much less sporty (GT-R >> 370Z >> Swift, is a definate decrease in sportiness).

    I just hope the next one won't be a Toyota IQ...

    And, of course, they started off with Optimus & Megatron, now we have half of the next pair, Bumblebee & ??? who's it gonna be after bee?

    speculate away =D

    Soundwave would make sense for the Decepticons. For the Autobots, I'd say Jazz.

    Nissan SUV, with price point increase?

    Maybe....... Trailbreaker?

    ..but that's just rampant speculation.


    ...or to engage in absolutely baseless speculation, how about the Lexus LFA?

    Assuming Takara intend to continue the Alternity line in the first place...

    My money is on Hot Rodimus.

    If they are folowing a pattern with the characters, then the next one will probably be a Decepticon. Question is who do we have from G1 that could be a sports car or other japanese vehicle?

    Soundwave sounds good. He could be a van of some sort.
    What could also be cool is if he came with a minion that could maybe transform into a speaker system that goes in the back of the alt-mode. That'd be worth $50.


    They would have to be cars though, since that seems to be the whole thing with the Alternity line, is the alt-modes are fully detailed model cars.

    People are upset over Alt-Bee/Cliff having a big chest. Could you imagine the rage over seeker cars?

    Since the Alternitys are smaller than Binaltechs, I wish all Alternitys would be G1 mini bots like Brawn and Huffer to go along with the Binaltechs.

    W/Regard to larger vehicles, maybe i should have been more specific.

    Takara charged extra for BT Convoy because it was a larger mold, although i'm not entirely sure it actually cost extra to produce. If anything larger than a normal car is on the way for Alternity, don't be surprised at a higher price.


    Maybe Japanese Transfans are just as anal as Western ones, but IIRC Hasbro have basically said they've no plans for Alternity, which in some ways may give Takara more flexibility.

    Don't remember too many complaints when BT Lambor wasn't actually a Lamborghini, so maybe they'd just reuse altmode-specific seeker names for seekers that become cars.

    Then again maybe not. This is starting to remind me of the old days when people would type paragraph after paragraph over what Alts/BTs are next, and most, including me, would get it very wrong.

    I think the next one is definitly going to be a decepticon.

    Just give me a Transformer that turns into a Honda Civic and I'll be set.

    Alternators Rumble doesn't count!

    well, there are much more autobot cars than decepticon cars to begin with,

    hmm... I think the lexus LF-A is a good idea, would be awesome if we got an LF-A Dead end or something.

    Assuming Lexus/Toyota are okay with their $350,000 car being turned into a $50 action figure in the first place.


    I could've lived with the Current Civic Type R being used for BB and CJ.

    The Civic would be a bad car to use, It's short and fat and tall, no sleek robot can come out of that without becoming a shell-former. BB and CJ already have big bellies, the civic would magnify that problem.

    I'm rooting for Starscream. I'd love to see a car Starscream for once, and this 'universe' seems to be the only one suitable/justified for one.

    You know, I'd be happy with them just downscaling and "Alternitifying" some of the BTs. BT Smokescreen was absolutely stunning as the Subaru rally car and I'd love for a similar Alternity toy of that (with Silver/Blustreak and Prowl following).

    Other than that give us a Trailbreaker or Brawn.

    Of course, I would kill for a 1/32 Alternity Optimus Prime cab.

    What about the Nissan 350Z (or 3-something-Z)as a potential alt mode for someone? I really like that car; small but sleek.

    As for the next character, I'd guess a Decepticon would be next. Soundwave would be nice; Starscream could be turned into Skywarp and Thundercracker (and even Sunstorm or the Coneheads) with relative ease.

    For Autobots, Hot Rod, Wheeljack (I have no Wheeljack figures! This is ridiculous!), Ultra Magnus (Takara passed on 'white Prime repaint'?) or Ironhide/Ratchet would be nice as well.

    Well they haven't done the white prime repaint yet, so everyone ready for a white Nissan GT-R Magnus?

    Ok in seriousness, if we are doing Decepticon Cars, I would love some stunticon love, but that is just wishful thinking.
