    What a difference a few months makes.

    I loathed Alternity Starscream's color scheme, head sculpt and 4 eyes initially but I'm really diggin' his look now. Even more so than Skywarp which I originally preferred.

    Love the beast-like head sculpts on these two. Starscream's looks cobra-esque while Skywarp's seems bat-like.

    So uh. This is awesome and all. But there's one Japanese car that demands the Alternity treatment.

    The car that's so awesome it's worth repeating twice!

    Still greatly dislike Starscream. Skywarp is better, I don't know why, so I will probably get that one.

    I've been staying away from Alternity, but Starscream and Skywarp look too good to pass up. I may get Megatron eventually as well.

    I wonder if they'll ever do another WRX Transformer? I loves me those.

    The box art is pretty darn good. They don't necessarily look a whole lot like their character names but I do appreciate the effort into stepping outside the box with this line. I just wish they stuck to the Samurai inspirations a bit more.

    Bumblebee and CJ could have looked something like this:

    [​IMG]Thanks to http://kiyong.wordpress.com/ for letting me jack that image for my own purposes!

    Maybe they could do an Alternity Ironhide that borrowed that look.

    Yeah but the EVO isn't a Nissan or part of the Nissan motor group.

    I like the skywarp, love the headsculpt on him (it's a nice different rendition of a seeker head), but I still hate the color - SW is not purple.

    The headsculpt on Starscream = ass

    Definitly looking for them! I'm sure they'll look even more impressive in person like it's often the case :)

    Neither is the Suzuki Swift or Mitsuoka Orochi.

    Alternity might have seemed like "Nissan Label" with the first 2 designs but they've since moved on.

    Based on what is on the main page of TakaraTomy's Alternity site (above blue Megatron), it says (first line): Local (Japanese) automobile mecha designs.

    TakTom's plans for Alternity seem to be limited to Japanese cars at the moment but who knows, even that could change down the line.

    I still think those two look like crap in any form; alt. or robot. For those who like them; more power to you, but those are admittedly some of the ugliest robots I've ever seen, even more so than the movie designs!

    I don't have any of the alternity figures, but I'm considering making Starscream the first I purchase.

    Starscream = 50-50 for me. Overall not impressed with the design.. so "meh" :( 

    Skywarp is a must get, and it's a purple car. Purple. Decepticon colors.. :D 
    So uhh, the head-sculpt is better IMHO compared to "Snake-Scream's'"..:D
