    I have gotten both versions of the Alternity Convoy figures from Takara Tomy and think they are fantastic! I'd love for Takara to continue the series beyond Megatron and constant repaints. They seem to have sold very well. Does anyone have any inside source of the future of the series or any guesses based on Takara's trends. I would be disappointed if it turned out like the THS series where they made 2 figures and stopped. I hate to say, I have a feeling this will be Alternity's fate but I certainly hope not.

    I think it depends on whethet they can expand the series beyond Nissans, as otherwise they will have to end it soon once they run out of sports cars made by Nissan.

    Most will hate me for telling the truth, but Alternity is a worthless line, and a copycat of Alternators.

    Don't get me started. (Shaking my head)

    Of course it's a copycat of Alternators.

    Isn't that what it's meant to be?

    Why?

    How I feel= I hate the Transformers of today, they suck!
    Reason= They are crap and They're the Duplo Butt ugly looking, wanna' be Lego's!

    I cannot believe an 80's Transformer collector would collect the Garbage of today. Yes, It's really that bad to me.


    Once again.......... ANIMATED SUCKS the worse AZZ you've ever smelled!

    I'm assuming this is a joke...?

    And regardless, it's irrelevant and trolling.

    ^wow in many ways Alternity is the old school build quality and feel of G1 but with the modern tech of the movie and BT toys so they = awesome.

    Also about them being a BT copycat yes that's a fact but we need to keep in mind Takara wanted to make the BT toys on a smaller scale so in a way these are TakaraTomy's original idea.

    any ways my 2 cents.

    Sadly I do think they will go the way of THS. It seems to me from a business POV Alternity Convoy was a cash in on the GTR's crazy popularity and the same goes for Megatron being based of the new Z.

    As for other cars well looking at all the cars in the pipe line right now that will be big in Japan and have the same crazy cult following I dunno theirs not many maybe the Lexus LFA production concept might get some love?

    If an Opinion equals trolling, then I'm 100% Troll!

    If there is a term for calling out a Troll and you're wrong?........ = Idiot! (You)

    i felt the same way as i was transforming the vibrant red convoy. old school discipline combined with the new school tech and design came out pretty good with this figure. i hope alternity goes beyond megatron.

    Obvious troll is obvious.

    Opinions = your views.

    Repeating your views nonstop (esp when in all CAPS) in the hope that it'll change people's mind = Troll.

    alternity convoy's so good, i'm actually deciding whether to get also the silver one or wait for the black (nemesis?) one. TF cash allowance for the next month will tell.
