    Binaltechs are made from Diecast parts where Alternators are all plastic.

    The only Binaltechs not made from diecast are the later kissplayer models :)

    Indeed ;) 

    Depends. If you want a display piece, I guess, but if you want to fiddle with them, go for Alternators. The die-cast in Binaltech is very prone to paint chipping. Plus Alts are about 1/2 the price ;)

    Also there are some in each series that the other didn't get. Like Binaltechs got yellow Tracks, Red Jazz, Blue Prowl, Red Alert etc, while Alternators got Swerve, Camshaft, Decepticharge, Rollbar, Ricochet etc.

    In bot mode there is little noticable difference in the way they look. Many Binaltechs look better than alts in car mode because of the paint. I like Alts because they are not top heavy and pose easier than binaltechs.
