    They'd look as much like liscensed vechicles but won't be too avoid paying these car companies the liscense fees. they'd still be voyager size. come with car seats,car mirrors,liscense plates. inner dash boards,sterring wheels,HA styled plastic wheels with rims.

    Please if you like the idea. Then please list your TF character choices that you think would make decent $29.99 Human alliance toys.

    Please just list don't list any military vechicles or remote control cars,no drones. as the Human alliance $29.99 toy line didn't have any of this.

    My Generations 2013 TF character choices for the $29.99 Human Alliance toy treatment.

    Hot Rod or Rodimus,with melissa fairborn as the driver

    Arcee in sports car form. not a futeristic car form. With carly as the driver.

    Some stunticons minus motormaster & Dragstrip

    Sunstreaker,with sparkplug or chip as the driver

    Chromedome with his nebulan as the driver that transforms into the robot head.

    My Transformers Prime $29.99 Human Alliance TF characters toys want list.

    Knockout

    Wheeljack with Miko

    Smokescreen with Jack

    Vehicon car

    Nope, not interested in extras hasbro would put out. Disappointed with recent toys. Sorry to burst your bubble, I'm a disgruntled fan.

    For Classics, I could care less unless they use it to factor in characters that haven't been covered yet. If they do it, fine, but it's not something I want to see since I'd prefer Classics slots be filled by characters we've yet to see and not a Voyagerish class HA Classics Bumblebee, Hot Rod, Jazz or whatever.

    Prime though, I'd be interested in, certainly. Arcee, Bulkhead, Bumblebee and now Breakdown seem perfect for a Human Alliance-type line.

    I'm more interested in Prime since the main cast has been largely covered by now (at this point, we're just missing Shockwave, Smokescreen and Insecticons) while there are still many holes in the Classics lineup that have yet to be filled.

    I'd rather they finish the Movie HA line before moving onto other continuities.

    no, not at this point anyway.

    Had they done that in the beginning I could have been persuaded but not now. Too late in the game. I would rather get the complete cast released stateside one way or another with a few unique non-screen molds and reasonable retools (like Sunstreaker from Wheeljack, goddamnit!).

    I'd take a scout class (or even a Cyberverse Commander) Arcee over any HA Prime figure at this point.

    The Human Alliance line knackers the playability of the toys through to many design compromises to shoe horn something into the toy for the human to do.

    Something without such compromised more like Alternators would be better for me. I'd prefer that they finished with Characters like DOTM Topspin, Mudflap or Jolt before making HA for any other kind of universe.

    I can see some potential for Prime toys perhaps especially Smokescreen - but in general it's just an example of all Hasbro does wrong by having to many flanker brands with a tiny product count and not putting all their attention where it should be ; with the health and quality of the core brand and not with making as many poorly supported extra lines as they do.

    I'd definitely want to take an opportunity like this to do non-car HA figures. MP-10 is a good example. Not too big so it's still affordable, but still big enough for the human driver to have some arm/leg movement.

    HA combiners would be next to impossible unless it was Menasor, where all components could be in one scale.

    Not in the least. The HA line was all gimmick, and only a small handful were worth it.
    Instead of another silly HA line, how about devoted attention to quality and paint aps? Yeah, that sounds better.

    wouldn't this idea be more like Alt/BT v.2 or something?


    i would support this, but my lack of excitement over the previous HA releases would make me quite wary of diving in.

    yeah, I'd be down with an alternators/bt ver 2.0 instead.
    they could still do a HA route too, but add in headmasters, power/godmasters, and targetmasters.

    I'd kill for an updated shuta, cab & minerva in this line, along with the decepticon headmaster juniors too. buster & hydra and the dreadwings...oh dear I think I'd wet myself....

    anyway, that's where I'd want to see this line go. all voyager to ultra sized figures.

    I'd be potentially up for it. I'm not realyl collecting Prime, so that doesn't really interest me, but I think it would be cool none the less.

    However, if we had "classics" HA, that'd be cool so long as they focus on characters that make sense to have a partner and not just redo half of the classics/generations line at a silghtly larger scale. My personal preference would be to get Head/Power/etc/masters done this way.

    At the end of the day, I always say YES to trying out something new with Transformers.

    While I think the basis for this idea is sound, the idea of limiting the design to just RL cars or facsimiles just sounds silly. Now if it was a HA type of toy at that price point without your proposed restriction yet keeping to the "close as to RL without getting into licencing issues as possible" thing i.e. other civilian and or millitary vehicles then; . . . G1 headmasters and horrorcons.

    However, to keep with the spirit of this thread; Like the Alternity line, I would like to see the Seekers; StarScream with Nightbird, and TC and SW with a Kremzeek each.
