    I just got BumbleBee today at Sears Essentials (what might have been K-Mart by you).

    He is awesome and is actually ALTERNATORS sized! Finally "the return of Alternators." - Not really, but he's close.

    BumbleBee's robot mode transforms to become larger than an Alternator, actually.

    However, the Sam Witwicky figure can fit perfectly in the driver's seat of any other Alternator and look like he belongs there.

    I compared the Camaro to the Alt Ravage and Alt Rumble. The car is shorter than Ravage's Jaguar, but longer than Rumble's Honda. It's probably perfectly fitting in that scale.

    There are not rubber tires or linked turning wheels though (as much as I wish there were).

    I paid $34 plus tax and thought it was well worth it.

    BumbleBee is sturdy, too - like Masterpiece Prime, you don't feel like you'll break him by playing with him and transforming him too much. Some of my Transformers I just handle really carefully and react to them as if they are really, really fragile.

    I think that instead I will really enjoy the Human Alliance assortment.

    Barricade and Frenzy are on deck, as is SideSwipe and Sgt. Epps, Mudflap and Arcee (together) with Mikaela. (It might be Skids and Arcee, I heard it would be one of the twins from a source I felt was trustworthy but which I can't remember for the life of me now).

    I think Sideways and Alice would make another great Decepticon set, and for a larger one, if Ironhide could be made with Lennox, that'd be great. I'd also want Skids (or Mudflap - whichever isn't on deck) and have him come with Simmons. For a final Decepticon that I can think of, Rampage could come out with a certain human he holds as a hostage but I won't post spoilers here.

    Hmm.. IMO the only Human Alliance TF that has attracted my attention is Skids. I'm not sure whether I can get it here in Malaysia, but if it's there I'll consider buying it. :D

    got him myself yesterday, he is absoulutely the best BB hands down. I cannot wait for the others.

    you have the chest transformed wrong... if you pull out the sides they tilt down to make him very movie accurate. Also his doors will ilt up as well to make that moe like the movie.

    ahh ok :p 

    One of the reasons I hate cannon bumble bee is his chest is still the car front with no tilting like in the move...

    Crazy how something so minor can ruin a toy for me sometimes...but hey if you like it let me suggest cannon BB, he is a good deluxe sized BB except for the chest (for me).

    HA Skids looks pretty awesome, Sideswipe looks like his legs are stumpy.

    Sam sits in the driver's seat in Camaro-mode. There's room for 2 human figures, so Mikaela can join him in the passenger seat when she's released with Skids.

    Oh - the question was about a HA figure of The Fallen? That would be huge. I doubt we'll ever see it. If they ever made "a giant, humungous, Human Alliance 'bot," you could bet on it being Optimus Prime. That figure would be so big though! I'd guess he'd be almost 2 feet tall in 'bot mode.

    I'd so buy him though!

    Ironhide was never even rumored or suggested. He'd be pretty big. I just brought him up because I want him, and I think Lennox would be a good human character to make.

    The serial number on BumbleBee's package is 6-5356941481-0.
