Other than the fact that they're awesome.
See, I have these rules about what I add to my collection to prevent overspending and overcrowding. Basically, to prevent just this sort of reasoning I'm about to suggest...
The rules are, I don't buy figures unless they're an homage of a character I like (G1 usually, but lately they're homaging Animated and Cybertron), OR the figure is so epicly badass and awesome that I just can't say no. Skyhammer for example.
I also don't collect Human Alliance because I stick with the traditional size classes for the movie figures.
So these Basic HA guys don't really look like any established characters, even if they are named after some, and while most of them are definitely awesome
, I wouldn't say they're necessarily epic
. But they look like damn cool little scouts.
Here's what I need you guys to do: Suggest creative stand-ins Neo G1 style so I can fit these Basic HA guys into my Movie collection. For example, I was thinking Whirl looks kinda-sorta-maybe-not-really like G1 Sandstorm's helicopter mode...? HA Sandstorm in turn looks like...well, anyone green, except for the head. So the closest thing I can think of is Hound. But maybe there's some obscure Micromaster I'm not aware of and like Breacher I can easily welcome these guys due to their heritage?
Make suggestions, I'm feeling impressionable right now! And I haven't bought any TFs for a few weeks.
