    I think animated human two packs would be no brainers!
    2 Pack Examples:

    1.) Sari, Isaac
    2.) Bomb Shell, (the other pretender)
    3.) Prometheus Black, Cyrus (small version)
    4.) Meltdown, Cyrus (big version)
    5.) Angry Archer, Nanosec
    6.) Captain Fanzone, SWAT member
    7.) Soundwave (nontransformable), Professor Princess

    Would you buy these?

    Some of them yes but they'ed need to be a bit more balanced for Hasbro to take to the idea. They like their set prices after all and having two big figures (pretenders) the same price as two small figures (Sari and her father) would be hard for consumers to swallow.
    The easiest way to remedy it would be with some generous accessories naturally. ;) 

    Personally I would totally buy, Prometheus in his slick suit, Fanzone, Sari, Angry Archer & Soundwave. The rest would be maybe's.

    They can make them, but I certainly wouldn't buy them.

    Maybe if they made small PVC figures of the humans and one or two each were packaged with a TF they'd be worth having.

    I can't say I'd buy them, but I think kids who watch the series might. Would be cool if they were in scale with the bots.

    After the most recent episode, I decided the human characters aren't that bad. I kinda like Capt. Fanzone... he's sorta funny.

    i would have them with Gimmicks like meltdown shooting water or slime .. Pretender beasts with Rubberised "Real" Icky skin Sari with a "Oversized" Key you could wear with sounds, Isaac with Meggs head .. Fanzone with Swat team member and bazooker, nanosec with pull back action ect ect

    However above all else I want those pretenders as Toys :D

    The hard thing to do would be the scale, since they would be too big for prime or even leader bulkhead and yet, really tiny to prowl and bumblebee. But I'm always in for human TF figures.

    I've been thinking about this quite a bit, and I decided the best way to go would be 3-packs at the Delux price point, with one 'big' figure and then 2 small ones.

    My packs go something like this:

    Sumdac-Meltdown-Tutorbot
    Bomburst-Finback-Collosus Rhodes (really small, can get away with two larger figures)
    Soundwave (W/ Accessories)-Sari-Professor Princess
    Nanosec-Police Drone Robot-SWAT Dude
    Angry Archer-Headmaster-Pink Glasses Man
    Collosus Rhodes (big)-Prometheus Black-Fanzone

    I've got Fanzone - he's with the big Collosus Rhodes.


    Basically, I figure each of the 'large' figures would have some kind of gimmick. This is how I see each going.

    Sumdac-Meltdown-Tutorbot - Meltdown is, of course, the big figure. In addition to glow-in-the-dark green paint, he'd also have a water cannon in his arm.

    Bomburst-Finback-Collosus Rhodes (Small) - Since Collosus Rhodes is so small, Bomburst and Finback can be bigger. Special features? I figure Bomburst would have some sort of push-button-arm-swing gimmick, and Finback would have poseable tentacles.

    Soundwave (W/ Accessories)-Sari-Professor Princess - All of these are smaller, so getting their accesories is a little harder. Soundwave could possibly have a sound chip (If anyone deserved it...). He'd also have removeable shoulder/arm speakers, and a G1 cannon. Professor Princess would have Powdered Sugar.

    Nanosec-Police Drone Robot-SWAT Dude - I just want one of those Police Drones. It could have flashing lights.

    Angry Archer-Headmaster-Pink Glasses Man - I'd have to see the Headmaster episode before I could come up with a special feature for him. :p 

    Collosus Rhodes (big)-Prometheus Black-Fanzone - Colosus Rhodes could 'grow' - essentailly have an extendable torso, arms and legs making him get just a little big bigger.



    Man, I want these so bad. I hope Hasbro puts something out. PLEAAASSSEEE

    We have that already. It's called the Staples "Easy" button.

    Agreed.

    I was thinking this too watching the last episode and thought the size of the Robot Heroes or 3-in Titaniums would be OK. 2-packs with a price point of $4. No gimmicks or oversized characters that shoot things or seem out of place (i.e Kicked from Energon). After all this is called Transformers. I always felt there was a needs for accessories, non-TF, or upgrade/weapon kits (like the Classics Cliffjumper, etc).

    Would I buy them? Probably not as I don't have a desire to own non-Transforming toys but if done right and affordable I might bite.

    Heh, maybe Hasbro could do both, cheap robot heroes versions for people who want them but not at a high price and action figures of the mroe popular characters decided by online polls.
