    the release of Binaltech's of Mirage, Rumble/Frenzy and Ravage? It seems like a possibility with Takara Tomy releasing BT Convoy but are they interested in continuing with Alternity coming out shortly? I hope so. I would be happy with just a die cast Mirage as he was one of the best Alt's but I would be more than happy to pay for a die cast Rumble and Frenzy and Ravage. Boy do I miss that line. It's sad when I pay $20.00 for the TRU Titaniums and get very little play value out of them and they don't look half as cool and complex as an alt/BT. Without question the best Transformers series ever!!!!! I would love to see at least 4 new molds a year. I think that is very reasonable. One per quarter.

    Who knows? Takara is insanely notorious for not finishing their toylines...

    I like how that sounds, to get a Frenzy to compliment Rumble would be nice.

    Well, it is possible to get a cartoon version Frenzy to go along with Rumble. :p

    lol I'm holding out hope they do a repaint like they have done with the recent Binaltechs.

    They'd have to do new tooling to make die-cast versions of them. I'd guess they already had the tooling for Optimus' mold before canning the BT line the first time, which is why we got BT-17 and now the upcoming BT Optimus release. It might be possible if the reissues do really well that they'll go ahead and fork out the many, many, many thousands of dollars to do up diecast molds, but at the same time, they may just as soon as decide they'd make more money doing something else.
