Don't get your hopes up too high just yet, but it seems Alternators aren't quite dead yet, despite the current hiatus.

Hasbro have updated their website with a product preview for Alternators Rumble, a Honda Civic Si. This is the first time we see the toy in vehicle mode, although the photo of the robot mode has been depicted at Wal*Mart's website for over five months by now. The toy had first been confirmed by Hasbro UK at the UK Toy Fair back in January, at that time still with a drastically different looking concept design.

With test shots of Ravage (this time with a feline robot mode) as a Jaguar XK having leaked through the usual Chinese grey channels a few weeks ago, it seems like there are at least two new Alternators based on G1 Cassette Decepticons on their way... although chances are Rumble and Ravage might not come out until the next year.

I hate to admit it, but I just don't find the Alternators line that captivating. They are GREAT tfs. I just can't seem to get into them though. I have Alt Prime. With any luck, they'll do a Megs. But, my interest stops there.

Check out http://www.hlj.com/product/TKT66909 for a picture of Hot Rodimus (Mirage repaint) from the Kiss line. Willing to bet he will join Rumble and Ravage

This figure looks cool, but I'm not a fan of the car. Posability looks....mediocre.

I can't wait for Rumble or (for reals) Ravage but I'm still going to get the Japanese Rodimus, because I find it unlikely the US version will have the fishing rod. And an accessory that not only hearkens back to Transformers: the Movie but also converts into his arm cannons is just too cool to pass up.

The KISS-Play manga is effin' creepy, tho.
