    Well, I picked up my HA Bumblebee from TRU today (cracked open the case myself to get this one) and I think he is pretty cool. He is well articulated at the head, shoulders, elbows, wrists, hands, waist, legs and feet.

    Very stable when posing and the battle mask mode looks Awesome. Sam is a nice addition and is quite articulated.

    Whilst you are getting a very detailed Voyager + figure for the money, he is not in scale with the rest of the movie toys. I imagine this will be the problem with the HA sets. They will be in scale with each other but not the rest.

    He is larger than an Alternator and stands at 180mm tall compared to Movie 2 Primes 240mm. I have compared him with Movie 1 & 2 Leader Primes, Legends Brawn and Movie 2 Sideswipe and Soundwave to give you an idea.

    Yes and no, he is a bit big and looses that Deluxe size playability imo. Loads of ways to pose him though etc.

    fantastic! ~ i'm primarily holding off of the Main ROTF Line for the HA line. only major nit i have is i wish the pivot point for his door wings could have been moved more towards the center of his back to make him more movie-model accurate.

    Have you looked into if the lower legs can be swapped to match the prototype? (which also looked more movie accurate)

    I wish I could but most of my collection is in store. I only have the few out at the moment that I used for photos.

    I will see if I can get something sorted at the weekend.

    I got him today too, he is really, really awesome.
    Big, heavy, feels worth the price and all the little parts Sam can interact with are great.

    The Sam figure has nice articulation for such a small figure, and it actually looks just like Shia.

    Yes you will have to put up with seats stuck to the underneath of Bumblebee's arms but that's the whole point of Human Alliance.

    If this HA Bumblebee is anything to go by then Sideswipe, Skids and Barricade are going to be great.

    Do those seats on the arms get in the way at all?

    I really like it, should be able to get one by the end of the week either from Argos or tru.

    The seats are okay, they only really get in the way if you plan on pushing his arms way back.

    Overall he has a ton of articulation.

    The only thing I can see pissing people off is the chest pieces that you angle, they are on springs and you pull them out and then angle them. They're very easy to knock and then they snap back in and you have to pull them out again.
