    Just had the idea hit me for a way to do the Human cast of Animated in a somewhat scale to the toys. Robot Heroes! That's right, little PVC figures of all of our favorites that the kids can play with along with their regular figures. (That includes us big kids too.)

    Using the same format, you could have two packs go something like this.

    Sari with the Allspark. (open or closed)
    Prof. Sumdac with Megatron's Head.
    Capt. Fanzone with Meltdown. (or Promethis Black)
    Angry Archer with Professor Princess. (on her Unicorn)
    Nanosec with Slo-Mo.
    Headmaster with his Head Unit. (In Flight mode)
    Spike with Carly & Daniel.
    Porter C. Powell with Colossus Rhodes (small form)
    Tutorbot & Sparkplug (dog) with Reporter Bot.
    Detroit Cop with Flying Drone. (a troop builder pack for both)
    Another version of Sari (maybe her street hocky gear) with the Small version of Soundwave.
    And any other future Supervillans and Humans introduced later.

    They could do a set and include some alternate versions like Sari in her Halloween outfit and the Headmaster versions of Tutorbot & Sparkplug.

    Heck, they could even do a larger scale PVC set for some of the bigger characters like...

    Pumped up Colossus Rhodes.
    The Policebots.
    The 2 Pretender guys - Bomb-Burst and Submarauder.
    The Trashbots.
    The Headmaster Unit in Robot mode.

    Anyways, just an idea to toss out and see what you guys think.

    I'd love it but if memory serves at Botcon or TFCon Hasbro said they had no plans to do any of the human characters.

    Boo!!!

    DEAR GOD YES! OMFG YES!

    I do want PVC figures of the larger characters like the pretenders and robot heroes of the smaller ones.

    I mean they made goddamn indiana jones ones, if Animated it successful and we get TF robot heroes, I am not sure why we won't see a few humans too.

    That would be cool. We could get the figures and they would even sort of in with the scale as well. I already love the Heroes lines of toys and I'd really like to have figures of Sari and the human villians so win win all around.

    Okay and since other toy lines have Heroes figures you could do really silly things like have Lockdown and Boba Fett team up. Or have the Avengers Hawkeye take on Angry Archer.

    As to all this never business yea right that's the same old line Hasbro kept feeding us year after year about a GI Joe Heroes line. Until this year when they came out with the Combat Heroes line for GI Joe. Never only means not this year so maybe if fans keep asking for characters like Sari then maybe at some point Hasbro will give in to us nutters.

    Excellent idea Hiro Prime :D

    So you're suggesting humans in the ROBOT Heroes line?

    Are you nuts?

    This is what buggs me. We keep hearing how important the human element is to the show/movie but when it comes down to it they don't think humans will sell as toys. Make up your mind, are they important or not?

    Back on topic: I would love robot hero humans. Especally the idea of a Sumdac/Megatron head set.

    hmm. if this were the only way to get humans, i'd have to see them. i don't like the robot heroes or any of the similar garbage hasbro puts out for these toy lines. the only way to get that god awful dispensor was via robot heroes and i passed.

    The 'heroes' line is one of the most popular and solid toy lines Hasbro has going for themselves. I mean across all their properties they are up to close to 30 waves and 400+ unique figures. It is hardly a secondary backup line like bumper battlers and activators.

    I'd buy 'em. I think your idea for set team-ups are quite good (though some seem extraneous... I'm not really itching for a tutorbot or reporterbot figure).

    To each his own, of course, but I love Robot Heroes. So much so that they are about to make me do something I've never done before...... buy Beast Wars characters. :D

    Excellent ideas, Hiro.

    Just like to add that you could also do 5-pack exclusives as well:

    S.U.V. - Angry Archer, Prof. Princess, Slo-Mo and Nanosec vs. Sari (or Fanzone)

    I'd want one of Fanzone & Sumdac. Fanzone's just awesome & Sumdac I can attatch to Leader Megatron as bling. I'd also want an Angry Archer but don't even think about making a Prof. Princess figure, especially to package w/Angry Archer.

    I want a Fanzone action figure! And Spike, Carly, and Daniel as Heroes figures would be bizarre and adorable.

    I am also amused that after all the human hate for the last...well, pretty much from the beginning...that fans are wanting human toys now. :)

    I've never been that big of a fan of the Robot Hero figures (I like my Transformers to TRANSFORM), I'd LOVE to see some of the human figures from the show in PVC form.

    Maybe, to add to the lineup, they could off some posable and scale PVC humans to go with a Transformer? Maybe a small Sari and Bumblebee (deluxe, or new Voyager mold, where she can fit inside), and similar?
