Alternity Lives?...

I wound up getting the Ultra Magnus repaint of Alternity OP from Bigbadtoystore.com on one of the sales they run for a pretty good price, like $30. I could definitely see him as Jazz with a head swap. Not a bad toy, but very fragile and fiddly in the leg transformation.

 

Actually, fragile and fiddly pretty much describes the whole Alternity line to me. I have three of them, and they're fun, but I don't keep them out to transform because I can tell that I'm going to break them by doing that.

 

I think my favorite out of the molds is Bumblebee - he's got an interesting transformation, nice weapons, good head sculpt and alt mode.

I wish they would bring back Binaltech. I miss the 1:24 scale figures.

 

My favorite line to date... But can you imagine the price if we got the same quality today... I am thinking around $150... MP Sideswipe has no diecast, no rubber tires, smaller and he is around $90...

 

yeah talk about $40-90 inflation

I wouldn't mind if they switched to all plastic if it meant the line continuing. It was an awesome line. Its a shame it was killed to make room for the movie line.

If possible. I tried to get Bts and Alts when I could [bts for my favorites and Alts for the others] I loved the line. I feel it has alot of life left in it. I emailed Hasbro about bringing it back, but I got the standard "we will take it under consideration" reply.

Alternity BB and CJ fits really well with Binaltech/Alternators... I would have been happy if they did Ironhide and Ratchet before the line died... My collection feels incomplete without them...

This changes everything... It looks like these are bigger than the previous Alternity figures... More like the size of Binaltech/Alternators...

Since it's a proto, it could just be a 2-up.

true but this could be worth the $120 if it is that size plus rubber wheels would make it more expensive than a mp lol
