    oooh, it is, isn't it? I never would've noticed the unicron parts if you hadn't mentioned it.

    That thing is ugly as hell. I hope they never produce anything that looks like that, with those huge treads just hanging there and wires(?) all over.

    It's just sloppy.

    See, I know y'all are saying Alternators, but I think it's a concept mockup for the Leader Brawl toy.

    Yeah, I can.

    The term "CONCEPT MOCKUP" means "a conceptual idea for a product that does not yet function, but looks, generally, like the end result." I think that the Hasbro folks "kitbashed" a general design for the Leader Brawl's robot mode, using pieces and parts of existing Hasbro toys and/or model kit components.

    Does that help?

    im sorry but military stuff in alternators makes no sense at all................it gets half its money from licensing from real world car manufacturers, and its supposed to fall in line with car collectors too.

    im all for military toys like that, but in a different line. Like when people were talking about releasing mp starscream as an alternator. Then you would have 26 cars and one jet .................

    I agree with ops, in that this appears to be a mock-up for movie Brawl. However, it could a custom of some sort (I don't know the orgin of the image so it's hard to say).

    This kind of thing happens all the time. Sometimes it is cobbled together packaging, and other times it is something like this. Hasbro would use it as a tool to sell to retailers or to show licensors. It could have been shown even before they had full clearances to release movie imagery.

    Yeah, we've seen more than a few packaging mock-ups in press photos here on TFW2005 a few times; they used Gundams & Gundam parts for some of the Transtech mock-up figures, too.

    Anybody remember the Classics Optimus packaged in My Little Pony cardboard? :lolol

    It's not a mockup for anything. According to Eric it was made by an intern to show what he could do. Hasbro do a lot of these to get ideas for future toys.

    Either way it is still a mock-up. This is just being used for internal purposes.
