Those are the right brands, but it appears from the thread and the info. listed here that the exact model is pure speculation.

Yeah, I get that it's speculation, but are those car pics of genuine designs from those manufacturers or have they been mocked-up a bit to resemble TFs?

The Mitsubishi has been rumored for quite some time; first here and then here.

Yeah.. the Two NSXs are Correct but Wheeljack is either Photoshoped or a painted model and the yellow one whas just chance

and knowing Mitsu, if they are gonna release a Alt, they probally will use it to introduce the new Eclispe body style.

This again confirms my theory about Takara BT releases...

You know:

BT-01 Smokescreen (original mold)
BT-02 Lambor (original mold)
---------------------------------
BT-03 Streak (remold)
BT-04 Hound (original mold)
BT-05 Dead End (remold)
BT-06 Tracks (original mold)
BT-07 Smokescreen GT (remold)
BT-08 Meister (original mold)
BT-09 Swindle (remold)
BT-10 Grimlock (original mold)
BT-11 Jaguar (remold)
BT-12 Overdrive (original mold)

Now, we have four more listed. Not surprisingly, two of them (Mazda RX-8 and Ford Mustang) are remolds, while the other two (Mitsubishi and Acura) are original molds.

As good as this news is, when is HasTak going to get their s**t together and bribe a big European car maker for design rights? I would ahve thought there would be a Mercedes of some description in the works by now seeing as the american branch of Damiler has already sold its soul.

Nevermind, any new alternators will be good alternators...

Plus the reworkings (with the exception of Smokescreen GT, of course) are being churned out in the same order as the original versions were.
