Lightbulb Transformers.com release pics of Alternators Tracks and Dead End

Yeah, we've all seen Tracks before. Now looks like he's definitely yellow, though.

Asides from shamefully not being an ammonite, Dead End looks rather cool...

... and has the Sunstreaker head...

[EDIT - apologies if this overlaps with anything included in one of the three thousand other Alternators topics currently in the forum. It's hard to keep up.]

Dead End's nice! To fanboy for a moment, though, Wildrider might have suited a little better. But I've got a great solution to that - when I buy him, I'll call him Wildrider. Brilliant, and no-one need be shot.

Tracks actually looks pretty good in that golden/yellow, but I might have to get alternator and paint it blue...

Dead End looks pretty sweet too...though it makes you wonder if what's recently cropped as Sunstreaker, really was...

Tracks looks great. He should have been blue, though.

Dead End...meh.

Cool

Dead End in Wildrider's color scheme and with Sunstreaker's head rocks da house!

Also, Tracks in that slightly-orange-yellow looks better than expected. The only thing I preferred on the Toy Fair promo version was the black (instead of grey) chest parts.

On that matter, what exactly is that partly transparent thing on his chest, anyway? A cockpit for a possible additional "flight" mode maybe?

Are we sure it's not a joke?

Anyway, Tracks looks awesome, and for the record, I did indeed say he'd look good in golden yellow. I rock.

Oh and I'm not too impressed with the shoddy looking missiles. They shouldn't be full of holes like that. I've noticed that Hasbro/Takara do that quite often, probably to cut costs.

Dead End's car mode looks sweet as hell. Not convinced with the red arms in robot mode, but I think he's nice enough to warrant a purchase.

Incidentally, I probably won't get Sideswipe/Lambor, since I've come to the conclusion that I dislike his robot mode. Not that anyone cares, of course.

Of course.

What part of the robot mode do you dislike to that extent? Seeing as it's pretty much the same as Dead End's, and you've said you'd buy that... or is it the colours?

The windscreen/chestplate in robot mode. With Sideswipe, it's clear and you can see the red underneath. It looks tacky to my eyes (in pictures, of course). Dead End's windscreen is not only tinted red, but underneath is the black colour of the car. It looks less tacky/plasticy.

Nice to know you care, Brend.

Generally when one has wit enough to make a joke they make it recognizable as a joke as well... :rolleyes: and so on...

ok one stunticon now shows there is a very high chance of them doing all of them ...... maybe a 20th anniversary prime repainted and retooled into a alternator Motor-Master

that would rock i think

They'll never have them combine though and I dunno if the line would ever support that many figures in addition to what they already have lined up.

I'm still going to get them both. I think they look pretty cool. Plus I think they fixed the problem with the hood the seemed apparent on the prototype version.

Unimpressed. I like the fact they chose a Stunticon, but I wish they would have used a different head. Tracks looks better but still could use a different color scheme.

Wow, very pretty.

I haven't bought Sideswipe because I just don't like his robot mode. I may get Dead End instead, though. Much cooler.
