Well, looks like the Alternators line is still far from being dead.

Randy aka Powered Convoy from Cosmic Rust provided yet another listing from Wal*Mart's internal computers, which contains entries for several new Alternators toys. In particular:

TRA ALTNATRS SCION 2 = 81331 (Description says "TRA SCION 2006".)
This is most likely a repaint or a remold of Autobot Skids. No details of color or character name are available at this point.

TRA ALTNATRS CADI X = 81333 (Description says "TRA CADI XLR".)
A Cadillac XLR (rumored before), and a new mold at that. No details of color or character name are available at this point.

TRA ACCURA INTEGRA R = 81359
We saw Autobot Camshaft, a minor remold of Prowl (actually based on the Japanese-only "civilian" variation of Binaltech Prowl), in packaging before, with his product code number being 81359. So this isn't a mystery at all.

TRA JAGUAR - RAVAGE = 81361
Probably the biggest surprise. Just like with the Cadiallac, a Jaguar Alternator has also been rumored before, but the character name comes as a real surprise, considering Hasbro already released (Battle) Ravage as a Corvette before.

Two more entries that have been reported several months before, but the toys haven't been released yet:

TRA ALT FORD MUSTAN = 81336
There is also a product page for this toy on Wal*Mart's public website, but it neither contains any pictures, nor does it state a character name. So it has to be assumed that this is going to be either a re-release, a repaint or a remold of either Grimlock or Wheeljack.

TRA ALT HONDA CIVIC = 81351
Surprisingly, Hasbro UK (who usually aren't exactly known for having much knowledge about their own products) originally broke news of this toy at the UK Toy Fair earlier this year. The Honda Civic Si will be the first Alternators mold to be released as a Decepticon first, with his name being (presumably) "Rumble". There's also a product page for this toy on Wal*Mart's public website, which features the first stock photo of the toy (which differs vastly from the concept depicted in Hasbro UK's catalog).
