    Is it just me, or are they making a Human Alliance line for this series seem a little obvious in coming?

    you mean by pairing up the humans with a guardian? I actually mentioned this to a friend earlier

    Yeah, I know that was a little too quick, sorry.

    It just seems like if they make a Prime toyline, there's going to be a Human Alliance-esque subseries in it.

    Its a brilliant idea!

    My only concern being that new HA figs are about £30 over here! Gona be pricey to collect even the mini series cast! Probably still buy them regardless, especially a a HA scale Cliffy J!

    If they still have all the regular size ranges (which they would), i'd be all for it!

    espcially considering Arcee

    maybe she'll be Deluxe class with a Jack and a Sadie doll as her rider

    Well, with just Miko, Raf, and Jack, as well as Agent Fowler, I'm not sure how many they could get out, but the possibility is there! Might even be able to work in a Soundwave and a minion or two.

    Sadly, Prime and Ratchet haven't been paired with humans in this series, unless they add more humans, or Agent Fowler is paired with Prime

    I totally see:

    Bumblebee with Raf
    Ratchet and Arcee with Jack
    Bulkhead with Miko
    Optimus Prime with Agent Folwer

    then you can put on motorized rocket skates and a rocketpack with hyperspeed voicebox on Miko to simulate show accurate hyperactivity action!!

    and you can plug a cable from the Raf figure into a usb port and hack any computer in the world!!

    jack has motorcycle st...:sly2: :eek:  nevermind...

    and Flower has evil stare and finger pointing action!!

    Niiice!

    Wouldn't work. They never made a Ratchet HA figure because of cost, so I doubt they could make a Bulkhead or Prime for that matter.

    So you would end up with one package that had Bumblebee and Arcee.

    Hasbro made a mess of distribution on Movie human alliance toys, and that had a much higher profile than Prime will probably ever have.

    HA Prime toys aren't impossible, but if they can't get it right for the movie, i've doubts as to how they'd get it right for Prime.





    Don't worry, Hasbro UK took the liberty of pre-cancelling them.

    Anyway, Hasbro INC would probably overship BB.

    Maybe not Human Alliance... but Hasbro could include little figures as accessories. It would be nice, but I don't even see them doing that. Animated featured many human characters and we got nada.

    I think it's definitely possible with the three kids and their partners. Not Optimus though, his vehicle mode is far too big.

    If Hasbro does it the same as the movieline and approachs Human Alliance as just another size class(next to deluxe, voyager, leader, etc), then it can only work when all the altmodes are of a similar size. Which they are not.

    I can take or leave a continuation of the HA line, I generally prefer or am satisfied with the regular deluxe version of the character.

    I'm not a fan of HA, but I'd pick up Ratchet and Bulkhead in a heartbeat.

    I loved the Human Alliance line. It was great. Any, and I mean ANY future HA releases I will buy.

    it's a great idea, because i'd actually buy them, plus who doesn't want jack, miko and raff as figures?

    Human Alliance has way too many limitations to work as a subline of Prime. The characters all have to be in a similar scale to work, and since the only car that's the right size is BB, it's a no go.

    However, toys that are sold in the normal line can include human figures I suppose. Deluxe BB with Raf, Voyager Bulkhead with Miko, Legends Arcee with Jack. This is so all the humans are in scale. Not saying the robots couldn't be released in other size classes beyond those, they just wouldn't include human figures.

    Me.

    But maybe they could do a figure of Starscream with Fowler and the Energon prod.
