    One thing the movie toyline gave us was the awesome HA line, which set the movie toys apart from anyother toyline. But one thing I'm dissappointed about is there's barely any Decepticon HA's. One was hard to find, and the other isn't even out yet. Another thing with them is the Cons are still called 'Human Alliance'.

    So I was wondering, if there's any more Con HA's, should they be named 'Human Difiance'? Though truthfully, Human Alliance works with Soundwave, who is allied with Dylan.

    And I still want an HD Sideways, Crankcase, and Crowbar...

    No, Human Alliance is a subline. If a few figure deviate from the title, they are still part of the line.

    They could call em "Brick in a Box" for all I care. All that really matters is I am buying them and they are going on the shelves. I will agree that I would love more cons to balance things out, but with the route they have taken, I would much rather have a full autobot car lineup at this point (Jolt, Topspin, Mirage, Wheeljack).

    I think they could deviate a little from the strtict format, whilst keeping the name, logo, and nobody would care too much.

    That said, i always have this mental image of "Human Alliance" with an 'In' suffix graffiti sprayed in front of it.


    More broadly, i think the line has been in a funny place since almost the start. It obviously has some following amongst the fandom, the designers do seem interested in it.......but retailers seem
    to be unsure about it.

    Actually in Soundwave's case, he and Dylan Gould are partners and thereforce their is an alliance.

    But with Barricade and Frenzy I agree it should have been Human Defiance or atleast he also comes with the hologaphic cop driver.

    People care too much about names and titles. They don't matter. They're just a marketing tool and a way for retailers to know what they're ordering.

    I feel that the current name is fine for both Autobots & Decepticons,not necessary for them to rename

    Considering that Human Alliance os the name of a subline, I'd say no.
