    I've been searching online for info but keep getting old threads on their announcement from here. I'm still looking forward to them if they are still on for release. Any info is appreciated.

    If I'm not mistaken, the Alternity line was canned after Thundercracker's release.. Which sucks, because 3 of the molds we got were absolutely amazing.

    You are mistaken good sir, Dai Atlas and Goldbug have been released since then.

    I really hope Galvatron and Banzaitron come out, I need to get my hands on a version of each mold.

    Tell that to Goldbug and Dai Atlas... They (along with Galvatron and Banzai-Tron) were to be Alternity Asia exclusives.

    Is/was Dai Atlas a new mold?
    And I was never too hot for the Alternibee mold, and must have forgot about the Goldbug repaint.

    They are probably cancelled at this point.

    They were announced at the same time as Dai Atlas and Goldbug and were supposed to come a month or two later.

    Seeing as D.A and GB are asia exclusives yet they're shelf-warming everywhere I doubt Galvatron and Banzaitron got the green light.

    Goldbug was a real missed opportunity. I like the mold a lot and I like the gold. A new head would have been so easy. So, so easy.

    That was the end of the new molds. (and at the time was announced as the end of the line)

    It wouldn't be the first line Takara (or Hasbro) has revived with nothing but a few half hearted repaints.

    I spoke to an Asia retailer on release of Dai Atlas and Goldbug, and they expected Galavtron and Banzaitron one month later (effectively in the next shipment). Clearly, this has not happened yet. Given that there are no pictures of these out there at all, it's not looking good (although there were no pictures of the released two pre-release either).

    I was hoping that wasn't the case but I guess I will have to accept that they are most likely cancelled.

    I'm still of the wait and see attitude. Alternity has always come out at a very sporadic pace.

    No it's not. Your talking about a million dollar steel mold like it's nothing.
