    So I'm just wondering, what is so good about HA. I just want to know what is so good about these over sized somewhat bulkier figures. IMO the only good figures are the Motorcycle Triplets, Jazz and Barricade. So yeah, what is so good about them?

    I find 'em to be a little more screen accurate and there alt. mode has more detail. Overall better looking

    it'd be cooler if the human figures generally activate some hidden features. right now these are basically drivers that sit there.

    Why Human Alliance?

    They look great, more detailed than deluxes, they're a little more closer to being screen accurate compared to other figures in different size classes, almost in scale to Leader Class figures (they really display well with them) and they come with little action figures that can ride in the car modes.

    Besides Human Alliance, where else can you get a figure of John Turturro (Agent Simmons)?

    You know... "Nobody fu**s with the Jesus!"

    Those are my reasons, but to each their own. :thumb

    I think its the fact that the alt modes are feel better with working doors and little figures to stick in them. Like another alternators series

    You mean those highly detailed Transformers that come with little figures to melt with a magnifying glass?

    Cave Johnson once said: "Don't ask why, ask Why not!?" Or something along those lines.

    Plain and simple, they are sweet. Most of them are winners!

    I don't understand how people can't just take a step back to figure out the appeal that something has to other collectors, even if it doesn't quite speak to them. Is it that difficult to be objective? I don't collect HA, much less movie figures, but I can understand the appeal they have:

    1. Larger than deluxes
    2. More detail/screen accuracy
    3. In scale with Alt/BT (1:24)
    4. Better engineering/quality
    4. Human drivers

    I don't mean to single out the OP. I just see a lot of threads questioning the appeal of something when it's fairly obvious.

    IMO, noticeable scale issues and for the most part bulkier figs.

    If scale is a big issue for you go collect some other toys. I mean that honestly tfs are notorious for being poorly scaled. And as for HA being bulkier HA Jazz would like a word with you considering he is far more streamlined than his deluxe version.

    Bottom line they are awesome!
