My best guess for the two:
1. Energon = the core series
2. Alternators = prevent Takara from being the ones who make all the money off of the sale of imports to Americans by releasing a version of it (all-plastic) at the same time. Hasbro is usually up to a year behind when it comes to Takara releasing stuff that's in high demand, and I think Hasbro is only trying to make more money by co-releasing Alternators instead of waiting up to a year to release a US version and try to sell to many who already own the Takara version. Their version of Smokescreen will be $40 and made entirely out of plastic, which is crap since you can buy 1/24 scale cars made of die-cast (probably more die-cast than what we'll find on the Takara version) for $10.

Energon is too kiddie for me
That is fug-leeee!!!!! He that prime looks like he stole the legs off of a Tallgeese III. Alternators all the way!
I've heard a lot of good things about the Tidal Wave Tf. I want to have at least 3 TF's for my collection (G1 Prime, Alternator Prime, and ), and the Tidal Wave sounds juicy, but for now I cannot afford it and it's not on my TO BUY list...for now anyway ;D
Yeah. Just saw those today. I'm excited about Scorpanok and maybe the Unicron repaint, but I must say I found the rest REALLY disappointing. I wonder if they're continuing with the mini-con gimmick, since only the Star Sabor repaint is shown.
