Default POSSIBLE listing for Alternators Cadillac at Toys'R'Us website

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...

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:

Cadillac XLR originally rumored by Cybertronian Enquirer in January 2006:

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
Honda Civic and Ford Mustang found listed in Wal*Mart computers in February 2006:

Honda Civic listed on Wal*Mart website in March 2006, stock photo of toy in robot mode added in April 2006:

Scion xB (redeco), Cadillac XLR and Jaguar (Ravage) found listed in Wal*Mart computers in July 2006:

TRA ALTNATRS CADI X = 81333 (Description says "TRA CADI XLR".)
TRA JAGUAR - RAVAGE = 81361 (Not to be confused with the Corvette Ravage.)
Jaguar box artwork confirmed as being in the orks by Marcelo Matere in July 2006:

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.
