Thanks to Pimpimus Prime of the TFW2005 boards for the heads-up on this one...

Well, the header says "Cadillac XLR", but it also calls him "Camshaft", whereas the description is for Prowl...
:confused:

Just so we're clear, here's the current rundown on what we know about upcoming Alternators:

Rumble (Honda Civic Si) originally confirmed by Hasbro UK at British Toy Fair in January 2006, including concept design:

Now here's what you don't know. The next Alternator to be out in 2006 will be a Cadillac XLR. No word on what character it will be either. It is scheduled for release before Rumble

E uma coisa maneira a ser dita é o seguinte: O Jaguar e aquele pequeno Honda vão sair mesmo! Estão nos computadores do Wall Mart e nosso camarada MM já deixou escapar que está desenhando a Box-art do Jaguar! Só não disse (e nem vai dizer) que personagem será !

(He wouldn't say which character it was he was drawing)

I think the Cadillac is supposed to be Megatron, though there's a good chance it could be Arcee(which would explain why it's taking so long).

Ford Mustang is probably some random Decepticon made into a car.

No idea on the Scion.

Not sure if I like the Jaguar being Ravage.

I hope it's a new character called Sally.
