I'm starting to get really pumped for the HA Basic line. For a low price they are basically Minicons for scale junkies (like me). They are being relatively smart with the vehicle modes, and they really seem to shine as weapons for Leader class Transformers (bit of a waste not to see a 'con Leader yet, but that's beside the point). However, what's holding me back from buying most of them is that none of them, robot or human, are movie characters (at least it seems really unlikely that any are at this stage of the game). The robots don't even really look like movie characters. A few of the humans have homage-y names, which I do appreciate. What's most maddening is that several of the movie Transformers seem absolutely perfect for this size class, and yet they are kept out of it. Even if you have to get creative with the altmode (as Hasbro often does) the toy could really shine. Examples: Brains: He has *no* toy yet. He's a small character, but apparently bigger than Wheelie (who doesn't quite work for this concept). He's got a close relationship with at least one human (Sam). C'mon, let's do this. I have no idea what his other modes are though, maybe he ends up too big. Laserbeak: He's getting his own Deluxe, and he's probably also an accessory for HA Soundwave. This is obviously a big name as far as Transformers go, and he'll have a big role in the movie. For pete's sake, why not use him to pimp your brand-new high-concept line of small Transformers that interact with bigger Transformers? Especially with an HA Deluxe Soundwave? Even weirder, Deluxe Laserbeak's design lets him interact with Leaders with the right kind of holes (Leader Starscream), but he's a little big and awkward. An HA Basic would be perfect. 2 or 3 of his modes could be garbage folded-over bird and it would still be perfect. Steeljaw: I guess this is more of a stretch, he's not as big a name (still bigger than Icepick) and being an accessory lets him stick to only getting two modes right. Still, it would at least get him his own toy and keep interaction with bigger Autobots. Name his squishie Blackrock for extra fanboy lulz. Arcee: She's a motorcycle, which I won't buy at Deluxe size. Her human could be her holo-rider. And my god, her design makes it trivial to get a gun mode out of her. Redeco her twice and I'd probably get them all. (I don't have any of the accessory versions.) Ravage: Well you probably saw this coming. The idea of Soundwave dual-wielding Ravage and Laserbeak makes me squirm. And how's this for his HA rider: Reedman! Insecticon: Hasbro, you already pretended this guy was big enough to take on Bumblebee in your bio, so why not? Who cares who the human is, he's bad-ass enough to ride a giant bug around. Plenty of room to be creative with the modes. Thoughts?
