    TakaraTomy's site has been updated with a section for Transformers Alternity.


    Features images of alt and bot modes of A-01 Convoy (Ultimate Metal Silver and Vibrant Red editions) in different profiles, flash animation of its "Synchrotech" transformation, toy features as well as desktop wallpapers.


    Oddly, they've used a silhouette of Henkei Sunstreaker/Lambor to represent A-02 Megatron as "Com(m)ing Soon".


    Both color variants of A-01 Convoy will be released in Japan next Thursday.

    i love the way the silver version looks but the red and blue looks cool too. but mostly cuz its supposed to be "convoy"

    [but i dont know if i want two silver alternity cars once megatron comes out]

    decisions, decisions!

    I went with red. Was thinking of getting both colors until they announced Fairlady Z Megatron. Decided in the end that it would be best to save the cash I would've spent on the silver GT-R and get the Z in silver instead.

    I hope they make a lot of these figures. These new ones are almost perfect.

    I'm not at all on board with the idea of Prime & Megs being little sports cars, but I'll probably end up getting them simply for the sake of keeping my Prime vs. Megs display case current.

    Thinking about getting the silver version of Prime and come up with my own fanwank name for it instead.

    I'm not much interested in them, mainly because of the price, but the silver one surely look amazing! I'm not a fan of Prime and Megs in a car mode, they look wrong to me, but the mold itself look sweet.

    Don't remember what size they are (1:32 if I'm right, wich I think is a tad bigger than deluxes?), but "real" alt mode at that size is pretty exciting for me, wich is why I'm so tempted to get one, but the temptation stop as soon as I look at the price :p

    heh, yeah. i'm in the same place

    itd be nice to have the red cuz i know its SUPPOSED to be "Prime" and i'm a big Prime nut.

    But on the other hand the silver version looks so awesome. I could call him something else if i wanted. Or just say that Optimus went silver this time around.. heh.. i'll probably just get silver but.. its a tough call :p

    Little sports car? The GT-R is NOT a little sports car.

    I haven't been this excited for a new Transformer is sometime. I hope this line lasts a little while. I love the look and the scale and am one of the few that likes Prime & Megs as cars.

    Nice update. I really love both color. But I can only get one, which is the silver, and going to call him Optimus Primal :D
