If you feel a little lost without a new purchase of die-cast figures, TakaraTomy may have something in the pipeline to help you out. The Japanese toy company is looking to repaint and release two figures based on the Nissan Fairlady Z (370Z in the United States) and the Suzuki Swift, according to Full Metal Hero and Kapow Toys. The character names and accessories are not available at the time.
Thanks to the Higekuma Toy blog, we have an in-depth gallery of TakaraTomy's Alternity A-04 Okamora Orochi Thundercracker. The figure was released this month. The same mold was the basis for two figures that were released back in May, white as Starscream, and purple as Skywarp. Take a look at the gallery after the jump!

The Transformers Alternity A-03 Suzuki Swift Sport Bumblebee and Cliffjumper figures have released and Peaugh has given us separate reviews for both figures. While Peaugh enjoys Bumblebee more, he praises Cliffjumper's red paint job (they both look quite fantastic in the videos), and leaves it up to personal preference.
