    New Alts Coming To Argos
    - By Rich on 2nd July 2006, 22:59 BST

    Thanks to Rich for letting us know that there will be two new (to the UK) Alternators in the next Argos catelogue. Here are the details and product numbers

    - Transformers Ford Mustang (cat no. 369 2006)
    - Transformers Dodge Ram (cat no. 369 2013)

    There will also be the Mazda and Subaru Alts, but no Jeep though. Also there are two separate Star Wars Transformers items listed.

    Rich doesn't confirm the identities, but its Prime and either Grimlock or Wheeljack.

    end of article.


    I'd wager it's Wheeljack....

    When's the catalogue out? I could do with an Optimus Prime that isn't overpriced.

    New cat hits store on July 29. From past experience, if you have the cat number you can pop in a few days early and type it into stock checking machine. I bought Alt Smokescreen and Windcharger this way ;)

    About damn time too. Hopefully it's Wheeljack, since I already paid through the nose for Grimlock well over a year ago. Thanks for the heads-up, godsenddeath!

    I'd imagine the SWTF items are one code for the normal figures (one supplied, may vary) and one code for the Falcon set, since it's a different price.

    I might need a Alt Prime to crib the windows from for Trailbreaker, so it's fairly good news.

    What is this "Alt Prime" you speak of? I have not seen this "Prime" in any local stores!


    And that is why I'm going to start preordering my stuff online, dammit!

    For those of you who haven't been watching the sightings thread..

    The Mustang is Wheeljack.

    Damnit, their 'Ring + Reserve service still doesnt recognise the code, and I can't get to my nearest Argos as I don't have a car.

    Every Argos I've been to has them, so it probably wouldn't be a wasted trip.
