    Don't see why they would right now. They said that it would return Fall '10, so they still have plenty of time.

    Smart, Hasbro, very smart: Tell us 3 P.O.S wastes of plastic combine, then laugh and wave our spent money in our face when they don't! (Good thing I'm not getting them :)  )

    Ok, I found it. Thanks!

    I'm super glad we're getting a Mudflap to go with Skids. I LOVE the HA line and I hope we see even more from it. Give me Ironhide w/ Lennox!

    Why does the bike with HA Mudflap look like Arcee in bot more, but they're calling it Chromia? and why does the bike that is coming with Skids look like Chromia, but its red and they're calling it Arcee??

    They seem to be making all the HA figs to scale with each other (that's why Skids & Mudflap also come with an Arcee sister, to justify keeping them at the same pricepoint as Bumblebee, Barricade, and Sideswipe). Unless they're making a mega-huge HA figure class, I wouldn't count on it. I think given the time frame of the movie line, what we've seen is it for the HA line, except for maybe a repaint. Or Jolt, if we're extremely lucky, but that's a long shot.

    ROTF Bludgeon: WIN. Bought.
    Brakedown: NICE
    Dirge: Okay, I guess. Botmode kind of reminds me of a hybrid of the G1 Seekers and ROTF Fallen. Colors are a bit garish though.
    Lockdown: Cool.
    Skystalker: Jet looks weird, but I like the bot mode quite a bit.
    Scattorshot: Looks interesting.
    Mindwipe: MindBLOWN
    Barricade: Expectations exceeded.
    Ratchet: Not sure what to think.
    Brawn: I like it.
    Jungle Ironhide: Need to see more pics.
    Legends: Don't collect those (bar Devastator)
    HA Mudflap: Let's put it this way, I wholeheartedly support any efforts to do every character in this style.

    Animated Rodimus: No surprises here
    Arcee: Ditto
    Ironhide: Can't wait.
    Wasp: I have Bumblebee. Pass.
    Blackout: That rip you're hearing is my hopes being torn to pieces.
    Hydrodive Bumblebee: That's a maybe, depending on how different BB itself is to the deluxe fig.
    Wingblade: Looks good, but my one-per-mold policy requires me to either pass over, or buy and sell the main cab. Undecided.

    OK, now I've seen the clearer pictures, some things have become clearer to me: the Animated Cybertron Ratchet/Ironhide mould is fantastic, Grimlock is "Goldfire" after all, Wingblade Prime's accessories are obviously optimised for the Voyager toy, and there's nothing wrong with Blackout at all. Seriously, what's everyone's problem? Disc arm and thinnish legs aside, he looks pretty much dead-on with the animation model. :confused: 

    As for movie stuff, Brawn, Bludgeon and Lockdown are pretty cool homages, and the Human Alliance Barricade looks rocking; it's a real shame we can't get a Deluxe toy that looks that accurate, what with the buzzsaw arm and all. Not quite seeing what everyone's liking about the new Ratchet, though; his legs are better, but that aside he looks less accurate than the already somewhat-inaccurate Voyager.

    Still, overall I'm more impressed now I've had a closer look. I'll be looking forward to seeing these things in the shops! Did nobody take a pic of Ani Voyager Thundercracker, though? I'd be really keen to see the paintscheme there; I normally don't buy repaints, but if he looks good I might just pick him and Skywarp up just for the hell of it. :D

    The future of the HA line looks very bright...and to think just this morning I was beginning to get disappointed after seeing the back kibble on Sideswipe.

    I noticed that too. They got the molds mixed up. Looks like we're gonna have to re-paint "Arcee" like Chromia, and "Chromia" like Arcee. Unless they change it before they actually hit shelves..

    Seeing this new Lockdown makes me regret buying the animated one. His alt mode still looks cartoony, however. Wish Swindle could have got this treatment.

    DAMN! HA Barricade is awesome, and Frenzy could be Alice. Mudflap and Simmons=not the pair I would like, but a definete want. Please let the motorcycle be the third bike! So, if any one wants a deluxe Mudflap, MP me. Probably will buy Jungle Ironhide, definetely buying Deluxe Ratchet and NOT Lockdown. Now for HA, just a TF with Leo!
