    Okay, after seeing the "DOTM human alliance" bots, how do we not know that HASBRO has not decided to do another crossover line...say, G.I. JOE/TRANSFORMERS?

    The humans are molded with the same kind of joints as the ones from ROTF's Human Alliance line, and they were listed by a European website with the rest of the DOTM price-points.

    yeah, I noticed the humans, but I just do not see those bots as being worth making Human alliance figs for? Didn't know that about the European website though...

    While these may not be human alliance figures, they are most definitely dotm figures, as payed above they were shown with the promotional pictures.. My question about them is will they show up in the movie?

    Wouldn't it be about damn time?

    25 years since the first TF JOE crossover and still no toys...such a shame.

    I've been a GI Joe collector since before the swivel arms were introduced so I can safely say that they don't match up to any GI Joe vehicles. Plus if Hasbro was going for a human alliance/cross over deal it seems more likely to include Joe characters.

    I'd love to see a GI Joe crossover, but it seems like something that just will never officially come from Hasbro.

    well, if you compare them with ROTF HA line, obviously they aren't simmilar, mainly because of their size!
    buggy and helicopter are from the supposedly named "HA BASIC" class, meanwhile a repaint of ROTF HA Bumblebee is NOT "HA Basic" :p 
    is like asking why deluxe Starscream is not like Leader class Starscream :p

    the human alliance basic will probably be sold as dotm toys to increase sales. If they keep ha basic separate from the movies like the non-movie power core combiners, the sales won't be as good as movie toys.
