Why Is Alternator Dead End Number 6?

Recommended Posts

The Alternators numbering system is supposed to look like this:

1. Smokescreen

2. Sideswipe

3. Hound

4. Silverstreak

5. Tracks

6. Dead End

7. Meister

8. Grimlock or Swindle

 

Hasbro mentioned manufacturing delays as the reason behind the wonky release schedule for some Alternators. Hound is a bit hard to believe, but with the Tracks situation, I can understand.

are you sure about that?

 

Takara's Binaltech line has the following numbers, and have/are being released in this order:

 

1. Smokescreen

2. Sideswipe

3. Hound

4. Bluestreak

5. Tracks

6. Dead End

7. Smokescreen GT

8. Meister

9. Swindle

10. Grimlock

 

I thought Hasbro was just using Takara's number. In that case there will be no 7.

Well, if the second Smokescreen is being skipped, that would mean that Meister would become seven in the order of release, then wouldn't it?

 

Or did you mean they would just jump from 6 to 8 without even bothering to package an item as 7?

I have a BT04 Hound and a BT05 Dead End who'd like to prove you wrong.

whats the difference between the 2 smokescreens where they appear to be the same except one has a 7 and the other has an 8, or is it just a marketing scheme?

#7 smoker is the updated 2004 model and it also comes with a missile launcher

I have Alternator Meister and he is number 7 :)

 

I wondered why he was 7 when I have all of them so far but there are only 6 released. Didn't realise Tracks was #6. The colouring issues is probably the reason behind Tracks' delay, although Action-Hq say Alt Tracks should be released soon :)

Not numbered? Huh?

 

Smokescreen's box as a 1 in the corner, Side Swipe has a 2 and Silverstreak has a 4.

 

What do you mean they aren't numbered?
