    Hey. So, I'm all for the Human Alliance line, because they can replace the deluxes and leaders can replace the voyagers (except blackout) and everything is in scale for my pet peeve. So, after RoTF, even though Jazz died in the first movie, in the HFTD line they made him Human Alliance, so is it possible that in some post- DoTM line they could make a Human Alliance Sideways (with Alice maybe? The human don't mean anything lol)? This would be quite nice. Thanks!

    While Sideways has been proposed by countless fans, it probably has little chance of happening. Not only is it a character with a small role, but he's a Decepticon at a high price point, and Hasbro doesn't have the Audi R8 license (hence the odd car mode for the deluxe). The main point of HA is the car modes, so I'm not sure how that'd work out.
    And scale isn't worth fighting for.

    They have only done HA's with licensed cars thus far. If we are going to see any other HA's after Soundwave, it would likely be Q/Wheeljack as he is the only car that Hasbro has a license to use.

    I see. I was wondering if the license would have something to do with it. But I feel like anything is possible for a figure no matter what happens in the movies. Like leader Brawl. He did very little, but he got a Leader class. When is the next convention that might display something interesting?

    Honestly, I don't care if any theoretical Sideways or Mirage is licensed. I just need toys of them that fit in that scale.

    Oh, just screw Human Alliance and make a new DLX, either that or just shrink all HA's to DLX size.

    Yeah, I don't need them to be exact either. I didn't even know the deluxe Sideways car was different until I was told so..

    I'd rather see a HA Jolt before HA Sideways.

    But Jolt did like, nothing at all. At least Sideways was a sports car lol. Much cooler vehicle. And he had action.

    I never understood this thought process but have seen it mentioned a couple of times. Obviously Hasbro had three leader class toys budgeted that year. With Prime and Megatron already taking up spots that left 1 spot for either, starscream, brawl, blackout, or bonecrusher. While looking at just the context of the movie we can say this:

    Bonecrusher has 1 scene, he breaks a bus, wrestles with prime for two seconds and is beheaded

    Blackout attacks a bases, cuts a car in half, tries to sneak up on prime and has his crotch exploded

    Starscream talks to megatron, does a strafing run on the autobots, blows up a helicopter, knocks down ratchet and ironhide and then leaves for no reason, shoots down some airplanes and splits

    Brawl takes all of the autobots on at one time and holds his ground while fighting 3 autobots at once. He looses his arm and is momentarily knocked out but regains consciousness and has a prolonged firefight with the military and is about to win when he is killed by Bumblebee.

    For me Brawl is the clear winner out of those three candidates for plain coolness and for actually plating with your toys since he fought every autobot except Prime


    Starscream revives megatron,

    I would pay good money for both an HA Sideways (with Alice in freaky robo-chick mode) and HA Jolt (maybe with Leo?).

    Besides pretty much save the day more than Optimus.

    If it wasn't for him, Prime wouldn't have been combined with Jetfire so quickly.

    For all the reasons listed here, they will never make one. So I'd stop hoping for one.

    It's not to say that I too would love one, but it'll never happen.

    Randy just made me sad, as I realize the harsh truth. :( 

    Even though I like HA Sideswipe, I think I'm gonna go throw mine across the room now as I cry. It's all his fault. All. His. Fault.
