The scale is confirmed - check out the other thread.

compared to the person standing behind the display case, that is an awfully big "deluxe". :P

Ok, so the scale for "Alternity" has been confirmed. Have both the deluxe-sized bot in the pic with Bumblebee and the obviously-bigger bot in the display case been confirmed as part of "Alternity"? Or even confirmed to be the same proto/figure?

The one in the picture with Bumblebee is likely an earlier prototype as it has a lower level of detail - the one in the display case is probably the final mold.

Instead of using the person's relection, a better indicator of scale is the plastic holder with the card describing the toy - if you compare it with the shots of the Henkei toys in the next case which feature the same plastic holders you can see that the GTR car mode is only slightly larger than the Henkei cars - which means it's a little larger than a deluxe, but not by much.

As for the two Alt Ravages, the first one was the reformatted Predacon Ravage from Beast Wars, who kept his G1 self locked in stasis inside his alt-mode's stereo tape-deck (don't ask me, I dunno why a new Vette had a tape-deck. :P).

The second Ravage was actually G1 Ravage after being BinalTech'd, but I forget what his bio actually said about it. Heck, I forget if I ever actually got to read his bio. :P

*scale confirmed*

*goes to look at pics again*

That sure is a lot of awesome for a deluxe sized figure....

1/32 scale ? Damn I don't want to have smaller robots and cars than my BT's. I will pass on this line if the scale is confirmed. However, the proto looks detailed and awesome and I like the Nissan Skyline GTR...

What's that unpainted deluxe beside classics Ironhide?

so some one else finally noticed the Henkai ratchet

Very awesome ^^

Imo, it kinda looks like a "young" Optimus, tho he does resemble that Fire Convoy alot ^^

You guys should read more... F2F says it's Convoy, and the writing on the slide says its Convoy.. i'm pretty sure it's Convoy! :P

:pfx

That and for those of us that can read Japanese:

Those blocky letters next to NISSAN spell out Convoy :P

Note that the funny blocky letters are the same on this actual known Convoy... just to clarify :D
