    Just wondering-

    Is there any chance we might see some repaints of the much-coveted Human Alliance Transformers?


    I think the most obvious choices would be Cliffjumper and/or Swerve.

    I hope so..preferably with a new head, too..but I doubt they'd do that even if they get repaints.

    Cliffjumper would be bought on sight!

    I'd put money on a Tracks repaint of Sideswipe. There have already been two Swerves, I doubt Hasbro would go to that well a third time after flat-out saying "we know what repaint people want for the Corvette character."

    And, while I'm not a big fan of the HA Sideswipe mold (the deluxe is worlds better) I would buy a Tracks repaint in a heartbeat if it came with a little Raoul figure. :)

    I'd definitely buy some HA repaints. I'm not a big of repaints, but how can you pass up a HA Tracks?

    Not quite sure if I'd be willing to buy any HA repaints, unless they are of characters that were featured in the movies.

    Though a HA Tracks figure might be cool, or a HA Cliffjumper.

    I personally wouldn't buy any. HAs are already pricey at $30. Why would I buy a repaint?

    I will eagerly buy any HA repaints that come our way. At first I wasn't a big fan of the price tag. But DAYUM! They are all utterly awesome. Even Sideswipe is awesome in my opinion. I had very low expectations of him from what people have been saying.

    Perhaps they could even retool them slightly, and make the human partners into head / target / powermaster partners as part of a Universe 3.0 line?

    The styling of Barricade could work as Chromedome, and pretty much any of the three known sports car moulds could work as Getaway.


    Granted, powermasters would require a somewhat drastic retool, so they could possibly be re-imagined as headmasters or targetmasters.

    Some kind of redeco or reuse is inevitable. What, when, and how are all that has yet to be revealed.

    Botcon exclusives maybe? Or are movie toys still off limits?

    I'd like a Sideswipe into G1 Tracks, Skids into G1 Cliffjumper or G1 Bumblebee, Mudflap into G1 Skids, Barricade into G1 Red Alert or G1 Prowl, and Bumblebee into G1 Jazz, Cliffjumper, or Silverstreak.

    I'd kill for a Cliffjumper with a slightly modified head, and if they redo Sideswipe in Blue with a different head I may bite.

    I would love a Cliffjumper or to go in the Animated style, a green and purple camaro, Wasp.

    That would be cool. I could see them doing a Recon Barricade with a blue Frenzy...

    As long as it's different characters like Cliffjumper, Swerve or Tracks (hell, repaint Sideswipe gold and call him Sunstreaker) are repaints I'd definitely pick up. If they end up Stealth Bumblebee or Recon Barricade repaints, those I will pass on though I could understand if Hasbro went in that direction to maintain recognizable character names.

    Yeah. I'm still hoping they cover all the available cars and humans from the two movies with new molds also, but Hasbro hardly ever uses something just once.
