    Hasbro have shown two things with Human Alliance:

    1) They intend to repaint at least some of the molds... since Sideswipe is arguably the weakest mold in the line, it might be possible that they're holding the better, or at least more desirable molds back for repaints later.

    BB will almost definitely get a retool next summer.

    2) Their choices for what's released in HA are not necessarily dictated by screen accurate colors, or picking a character currently on show at cinemas.

    Put these two things together... and i think it suggests the possibility that Hasbro will reuse the HA Mudflap mold between now and next summer.

    It appears that Skids and Mudflap will get new alt modes next summer, with that in mind Hasbro have a fairly definite time frame in which they can get extra revenue out of the mold.

    There are probably a few people in Hasbro who are WELL aware of the fact that HA Mudflap had a limited release in some parts of the world, and want to do something about it. Not necessarily just to get extra cash from the mold, but perhaps also to give people a shot at something they'd miss otherwise.

    ...and if you're watching Hasbro, how about something not TOO radically different...
    ..maybe a desert themed HA Mudflap with an overall same color scheme, but a few detailing differences?

    Four words: Human Alliance Tuner Mudflap

    The one catch is that it would simultaneously shelfwarm and be highly rare. Such a contradiction would create a paradox that would destroy the universe. Great scott!!

    Apparently, the Large Hadron Collider won't be the thing to destroy the world from Europe. Energon Ultra Magnus beat it to the punch several years prior. The world-destroying paradox must be slow acting.


    In regards to the topic title, I don't have all three, but only because I didn't feel the need to own Evac. Blazemaster is good enough. My Mudflap was imported from Japan, but all three were quite easy to find in the Vancouver, BC area for quite awhile. Red Rampage/Evac were on the pegs at my local Wal-Mart for at least a month (I think up until a Rollback cleared them out, leaving a small trove of Tuner Mudflaps and Alliance Bumblebees, that are still there. Slowly dwindling, though). Several cases of the HA Mudflap wave were stocked during the last HA Rollback, they were plentiful in Wal-Marts across Canada. Those lasted about two weeks locally, although I spotted another one just last week.

    Skystalker and Scattorshot, on the other hand...

    So the tail end of figures do get "released" the question is who gets them? Does hasbro do anything about it?

    Never saw any. Only wanted Mudflap, it's a shame I probably will never get him nor Barricade for a decent price. (I only saw Barricade once)

    Nope.

    HA Mudflap is the only HA figure I need, and I haven't seen him in stores at all. I may have to resort to getting him online.

    Red Rampage, I'm not too interested in getting him.

    Evac, I don't think I've seen him in retail and I would like to get him at some point in time.

    I don't have any of them. I'm not interested in HA Mudflap, but I wish I could find Evac and Red Rampage.

    Found HA Mudflap for $15 in Canada (only time I ever saw him). Never seen the other two. Frankly, I could care less about Ramage & Evac. I don't like those molds. Unless Hasbro sends me some in their Double Your Action giveaway, I'll never own them.

    I had an eerie experience today...I visited a Freddie's store I don't normally go to, and although their toy section had old, ooooold figures in it, there were NO TUNER MUDFLAPS.

    I made sure to check myself for a goatee and/or slinky bikini skirt set right away of course. Can never be too careful.

    *BACK ON TOPIC*
    I never saw either of these, but all I wanted was Evac to keep Blades company in my rescue aircraft shelf. :(

    Only mudflap. Never seen the others in person, and they go for ~$50 on ebay these days...

    I'm afraid I won't be getting ahold of them until 2012...

    Don't have any of them and haven't seen any of them at retail. The only one I was looking for was HA Mudflap, mostly for the Simmons mini-figure, so I'm hoping it'll be reissued in a future HA wave.

    No,No and No!


    I don't need HA Mudflap, Evac's a terrible mold and Rampage is screen acurate.


    However any in Ottawa looking for Evac, Silver Snail has one, say it yesterday. No Rampage though. :(  I don't want that the crappy BB and Ravage)

    Got HA Mudflap from Hasbro, and entertainment earth. Never saw him at retail. Got Red Rampage from Walmart, the 1, and only time I've ever seen him at retail. Evac, was the so easy to pass up, cause Blazemaster sucks ____! I actually saw him twice at retail. Went back and it was gone, so somebody actually had the nerve to buy him.

    So the early report that someone found HA Mudflap is a lie then....no one found HA Mudflap at a store....to be honest the colors on evac are nice, but the figure sucks....
