Skids looks great, but why does the girl have to get the small, City-car??? Is this another joke from Bay about girls and driving cars???? As for The Fallen, I never said I wanted a TF in the colors of the Dutch Soccer team, but apparently, the Fallen is a hooligan...

Who else is Mikaela supposed to get? Sideswipe? Mudflap? Jolt? Another Bumblebee?

I understand what you're trying to say, but why such a stupid city car like a Chevy Beat??

Sideswipe: We've already got one
Jolt: Actually not a bad idea, but it probably won't sell...
Mudflap: Same story, city car/ crosssover...
Bumblebee: No.


Just how hard can it really be??? Why just don't take Ironhide or something, he really deserves a good new mold on HA level...

just shows how little the humans and robots actually interacted with each other... the only actual pairings that make sense to me are

sam/bee (done)
simmons/skids (except he was put with mudflap, in favour of michaela)
lennox/ironhide (never happen, the figure'd be huge unless he was scaled down to a smaller truck)
possibly roommate/jolt (because you know hasbro have to shoe-horn them in somewhere)

people have pointed out that mustache man would be a good decepticon HA human figure, but who with? theres only really sideways left that you could do in that scale before you get into non-movie figures, or decepticon repaints of autobot cars.

ohhhh, thinking about it, could you do a HA rampage with sams parents, if you scaled him down a little bit?

because that was his alt-mode in the film?

unless you're saying the HA's should branch out from the movieverse?

I like that your "Just how hard can it really be?" question is preceded by four failed suggestions. Apparently, it's pretty hard.

The pack is Skids, Arcee and Michaela so you can match her up with the bike if it's a real issue. They did that whole "sexy shot" on a motorcycle afterall.

According to Nevermore's checklist there's supposed to be a HA Ironhide coming down the pipeline.

Or not. That was one of the first listings for Human Alliance, listed Bumblebee and Ironhide.

Then we learned of Sideswipe, Skids, Barricade, Mudflap...

Wave 2 of the RPM single packs (Long Haul, Sideways, 2009 Bumblebee, Ironhide) is out. Apparently also the remote-controlled RPM versions of Optimus Prime and Bumblebee.

That's too bad. I was hoping they'd develop one since the first version isn't terrible, but isn't great.

I find it interesting/funny how Scout class Scapel is only a little bit smaller than he's shown to be in the movie... If they made him voyager or leader class maybe then he would be in perfect scale. Although if they did I wouldn't buy it, a $50 dollar Microscope? you could get a real one for that.
All that was needed was a catalyst and the machines of war are set in motion.

sadly, i am really disappointed in the lack of details in the bike. i figured it'd be just as detailed as the others, or even better seeing as it is in the the human alliance packaging.

You're not understanding me entirely I guess... It's not that I think a Chevy Beat is that stupid, but it's made for kitty-like girls like the Pretender shell of Alice, and not for Girls who have the same job as the family Teuteul... For those people Ironhide exist, and that's why I want a HA Ironhide in favor of that thing...

AQnd yes, they should branch out, if they're that good as they are now...

so basically, this is nothing to do with the toys, it's just you having a rant because you don't like small city-cars?

Ooo! Gears! :up: Now Hubcap, Seaspray and Huffer are the only Minibots left that they didn't give any love to! Although I was a little surprised they used that mold...

Thrust's lookin' okay.

What is Thrust? Is he supposed to be the new JSF (F-35..whatever they're calling it these days)?
