    I can't wait to get my hands on him. I hope the BT line continues. I really want a BT Mirage! I want a Rumble, Frenzy and Ravage as well. I especially want new molds. I figure if they released 4 new molds a year, it would be perfect. One each quarter. It would satisfy the need for high end Transformers that are made using real automobiles.

    Looks good! Will have him soon then I hope. He looks nearly Identical to the KISS version, but with metal and without that annoying little girl. Glad I passed on that one.

    I have to say that is very hot! Very much looking forward to getting that in all it's die-cast glory.

    Shame that mold is still a piece of crap that needs a ton of modding to look decent.

    Looks pretty good but easy pass now that I've stop collecting old BT/Alt molds since I wasn't too happy with BT-19/20. Bring on the new ones!

    There is a BT Ligier (Mirage), he was clear and an e-Hobby Exclusive. Rumble and Ravage, I'm thinking them (as well as the Ford GT Mirage mold) were not made for diecast as well (like all previous Alternators), so Takara probably won't release them as Binaltech since they cannot have diecast. This is just a theory though.

    They made a die cast mold for Convoy. So you never know and yes I know there already was a die cast mold used for the Nemesis Prime but that was limited to 1000. Therefore, if they can make a die cast mold essentually for a limited release, anything can happen.

    I was always under the impression that all the Alternator molds, (including the ones that have never been made as Binaltechs), were all originally intended to contain diecast parts. Afterall, we got Optimus Prime as an Alternator long before he showed up as Binaltech Nemesis Convoy. I'm still holding out hope that they will eventually release Mirage,(or Hot Rod), Ravage and Rumble as Binaltechs, even though it seems like Takara suddenly switched plans for it with a smaller scale line. I'm not into this Alternity stuff at all.

    NICE! I don't care if the mold's not that awesome, he's still Optimus Prime. HELLO Christmas gift!

    Me neither, though to be honest, I wish I could get a hold of the Nemesis Binaltech version. Binaltech really, really needs more Decepticons.

    Optimus was INTENDED for a Binaltech release. Takara had scheduled him as BT-17 Ginrai and all. Then they cancelled him and announed Kiss Players Convoy a few months later.

    Most likely Binaltech Black Convoy used the diecast parts originally created for Ginrai.

    Meanwhile, Takara probably never created any diecast molds for the Ford GT, which is why BT Rijie was released as a clear all plastic version instead.

    I think the bottom line is if they can make a profit, making a new mold or another line (Alternity) will not stand in the way of them releasing other figure. Therefore, please support Binaltech's by buying them. I have yet to be dissapponted.

    I don't know why so many give the Alt Prime such a hard time. I think it is an excellent figure and has perhaps the best Prime head ever released.
