    Since the HA line is basically done with new molds, which is the best?

    I know it is basically going to be between 3 figures: BB, Barricade, and Jazz, but I am putting all of them into the poll.

    I voted for Jazz.

    I only own Bumblebee, Skids, Sideswipe and Barricade. Haven't opened Barricade yet.

    Bumblebee is awesome, and Sideswipe is underrated. But for me, controversially, I'm going to go with Skids. He is a well proportioned figure with lots of personality and less intrusive kibble (ie seats for his human partner) than some of the others.
    To top it all off, his model is fairly accurate to his on screen character.

    Haven't seen HA Jazz in person. Out of the rest my vote goes to HA Bumblebee.

    I think I'd rate them:

    Jazz
    Skids (and Mudflap because, let's be honest, they are more or less the same figure)
    Bumblebee and Barricade are tied
    *space left open for any other possible figure*

    Without question it's Barricade at the moment. I have not seen Jazz or Mudflap in action, though.

    i think its always gonna be then newest figure being released at the same time the thread is made.
    when skids was new, hew was better than bee.
    than barry was better than bee, skids and ss..
    i think they could do a sideswipe and everyone would love it more than all previeous....

    I only have the first three. Out of them, I'd say Skids. Then Bee. Then Sideswipe.

    I want Barri-cate and Jazz. Mudflap, too (he's harder to find that bigfoot).

    Barricade. I accept HA Skids and Mudflap are great toys, in fact I've got a Mudflap coming to complete the duo...but I CANNOT STAND their characters or head sculpts. Its one thing to have comic relief characters...its another to have head designs like that.

    Barricade has some problems, but when you mod his hips I feel that much of it goes away. The digitigrade legs aren't too bad, and you can extend them pretty good, allowing for a nice, rather tall robot. The only issue I'd have at this point is that they're scrawny looking, but there isn't much you can really do going by the engineering of that toy.

    I just got Jazz yesterday and he is by far the most solid and well designed HA figure out.
    Ranking from best to not-so-best lol
    1. Jazz
    2. Skids
    3. Mudflap
    4. Barricade
    5. Sideswipe
    6. Bumblebee
    IMO Bumblebee is the least impressive, i love the figure but it isnt my cup of tea really. I personally like the Battle Ops Bumblebee so much more. Despite his hugeness. More accurate

    Bumblebee is by far my favorite of the ones I have (BB, Skids, Sideswipe). Don't have Jazz yet, so I can't vote for him.

    So far I have Bee, Barricade, Skids, and Sideswipe. Of those, Barricade is the best. He has very little backpack kibble, looks very clean in robot mode, and best of all-he is a breeze to transform. Not like some of the others, where transformation can get really finicky.

    Barricade. However, I really like the twins. Barricade wins because his deluxe version was atrocious.

    To me, HA Barricade is the best! After that, it's Bumblebee, Sideswipe, and Skids.

    I've yet to pick up HA Mudflap and HA Jazz.

    On accuracy and overall impression, I'm going to have to go with Barricade.

    However, Jazz has my favorite transformation scheme. He'd easily be my favorite if it weren't for his legs. I'm not a big fan of his skinny knees and massive thighs (or skinny legs and massive hips if you transform him the way the instructions tell you to).
