Shortly after Hasbro unveiled the Alternators line of transforming, licensed automobiles, Takara announced their version of the series. Called Binaltech, this series had ties to Generation 1 continuity and the toy themselves featured a lot of die-cast metal over the Alternator's plastic bodies.

The tail end of the Binaltech series branched off if you will and renamed, Binaltech Asterisk. Only 3 figures were released and with each release was a small PVC female figure. Non-articulated, they did have interchangeable legs to allow them to be seated inside the vehicles.
