It's basically like a Transformers Hybrid Style figure, which is to say that it's just a name that probably sounds neat to Japanese collectors that don't actually speak any English.

Yeah, I think it's in that Binaltech book that Takara wanted to make the line at a smaller scale, but Hasbro needed the toys to be big enough to stand out on American toy shelves. If I were to take a completely random guess, I'd say the Nissan is 1:36 scale since that's what Takara wanted to begin with.

I find it disappointing that this new Alternity figure turned out to be another Convoy but whatever sells, I guess. I was hoping for something like a Cliffjumper, Bumblebee, or something/anything else.

Kinda dissapointed that it's another Prime. Too bad it couldn't be someone else - but still, nice overall look when in robot mode, so not too much complaint other than character choice. And if that is TC's blue color scheme, wow, very darkish, but not overly garish.

Cool

Another Prime? Oh well... I do believe that Ironhide is looking better (could just be the pictures)! There also seems to be what will be Ratchet in those pictures as well!
