    So coming up this week i am gonna be getting $100 to blow on tfs. I am only sure of 1 purchase and that is bludgeon. I am thinking about getting a couple of human alliance figures. Bumblebee and one other. I am thinking skids or barricade if i see him. I have seen videos on HA Sideswipe but not sure if i want to get him if the dont have the others i want.
    Is HA Sideswipe worth getting if i have the deluxe or should i hold out for skids or barricade?

    I like Sideswipe. He's a decent figure, but not as good as Bumblebee and I can't comment on Skids since I don't have him.

    He looks cool but he just looks really bulky to me. At least compared to the deluxe.

    HA Sideswipe is short compared to HA Bumblebee. I would go for Skids.

    Grab Barricade if you see him. Or Skids. Not Sideswipe though.

    Personally, I like all of the HA figures, even Sideswipe. Now maybe he is the worst of the three available, but he is still a cool looking car and robot with a nice transformation that is fun to play with. I would say Skids is second to Bumblebee in terms of awesomeness and I eagerly look forward to Barricade hitting the shelves.

    Moral of the story, you can't go wrong (in my opinon) with any of the Human Alliance figures.

    I'd get BB and just throw the rest at a Pre-order on Barricade. I don't have one, but he's easily the most impressive to me between the Twins, Sideswipe and himself.

    If you have Deluxe Sideswipe, HA Sideswipe definitely isn't necessary. I'd save the money for HA Barricade.

    HA Skids is fantastic. I don't have Sideswipe.
