    After what seemed like way too long of a wait, my HA Bumblebee finally arrived from HTS. It was worth the wait, as it's already one of my favorite Transformers in my collection. I think it could best be described as an Alternator you could actually give your kids to play with.

    I'm really looking forward to the line, and it got me to thinking... what if they decided to continue the Human Alliance figures as a regular part of the Transformers toy line, putting it under the Universe line? Well, other than a lot of TF fans being poor? I think it'd be really cool to see what they might do.

    Who would you put in a post RotF HA line? Some of my picks...

    o G1 Bumblebee with Spike.
    o G1 Prowl with Chip.
    o G1 Tracks with Raoul
    o Animated Bumblebee with Sari(possibly include Prowl, a la HA Skids, to make up for his smaller size).
    o G1 Hot Rod with Daniel.
    o Animated Swindle with Angry Archer - Just because it'd be funny.
    o G1 Dead End with Rumble - You could probably work in any of the human villains from G1 to drive the Stunticons, too.

    And two that would NEVER happen, but I'd love to see them.
    o Hearts of Steel Bumblebee with John Henry
    o Gobots Smallfoot with... oh, it doesn't matter. I just want an updated Smallfoot, and she'd be awesome at this scale. =p

    But there's a lot of possibility in the line. Joe vs. Transformers, anyone? What would you like to see if HA went beyond the current movie line?

    I'd only want licensed cars myself. So I fully support Overlord's list :p

    Human Alliance = Alternators 2.0
    Therefore, I hope it goes on for a long long time, touring through the Movie and G1 universe. Realistically though, due to licensing and sales issues, I think it's more likely to just be the Movie Bots who get this treatment. If ROTF proves to be the cash-cow Hasbro hopes, there's a good chance for more HA in 2010 I reckon, along with the new Leader Screamer.

    I want Ironhide+Lennox. Like, really, REALLY want.

    I'd take anything not from the movie universe, really. Animated Bee with Sari and Hot Rod with Daniel would be a good start.

    I'd like to see what the other to-be-released figured have to offer first before I start pining for more. Bumblebee does indeed look fantastic, but I personally can't justify the $35 price point for an 'Almost Alternator' no bigger than a Voyager with a Human figure smaller than a G.I.Joe.

    Sideswipe looks alright from photos, hopefully better in person. Skids looks promising and I don't think we've seen Ironhide or the rumored Barricade yet.

    If those 4 turn out to be fantastic, then I'd be down for more in the future.

    Iron Hide and Ratchet are my fav movie characters so I'd buy either of them Human Alliance. I'll hopefully end up with Bumblebee as well.

    Human Alliance is essentially the movie's "Ultra" pricepoint. So if a Human-Alliance-like toy was made for Universe I'd more expect it to just be made as an "Ultra" and be something like Chromedome with Stylor.

    I think the one thing working against us, in terms of Lennox and Ironhide, is that Ironhide would either have to be scaled down, or it would be a more expensive figure. I'd LOVE to see stuff like Blackout and Starscream done in this scale, but they'd be HUGE in order to pull it off. Leader Starscream might be in scale for the line, though...

    If the rest of the HA's are as cool as BB then I hope we get a ton of them. Some possibilities:

    Mudflap w/ Simmons and Leo (Skids has Mikaela and Arcee, so Mudflap can come with 2)

    Ironhide w/ Lennox

    Sideways w/ Alice

    Jolt w/ Leo or Simmons (if we don't get both with Mudflap)
