I'd be of no help between your decision between Sandstorm and Half-Track. I picked Half-Track solely because of his blue colors and space theme. I'm biased like that :lol:

Honestly, Sandstorm and Half-Track are pretty much on par. They have the exact same plastic lay-out and paint-apps sake for the colour itself. Half-Track features an Autobot/NEST symbol on his vehicle hood instead of an Autobot symbol on the chest like Sandstorm. That, and his head has more coloured stripes than Sandstorm. So it's either the different human partner (both have a unique sculpt not used anywhere else) or the general theme of the colours.

I should have been clearer: the photo above is what I got today, Sandstorm and Icepick.

Thanks for the help, everyone!

Half Track by far is the best, but then again, I love Space.
So in reality, Sandstorm/Half-track are steals for the price.
They both very articulated and can pose very well, but also have a bunch of modes,
a lot just made up ones lol.

Sandstorm and his repaints also have a decent "Powerloader" mode for the HA humans. Also, the humans that came with the HA Basics are pretty darn close to being "in scale" with the vehicle modes of most car-mode Deluxes from the 2000's - they're close to 1:34 scale, and most of those car-mode Deluxes are between 1:30 and 1:37 or so.

My first venture into Human Alliance figures, I chose HA Sansdstorm!
Proportions, posability and sizing all played a part in choosing this great little figure to be part of my Wreckers line-up!

Actually, we do. They're in the Dark of the Moon section, as it's not a separate line by any means. It doesn't list all of them, mind you.

There's only four of them, and two of them are repaints.

I guess Ryan isn't into the line.

Well my 2 cents feels that getting Halftrack and Sandstorm to switch their heads just makes things look way better. Then I parted ways with Sandstorm and lame-ass Dedcliff. Tailpipe and Reverb were my favorites and the best IMO. Tailpipe is cool simply cuz it's not bad having another TF motorbike and he's got a cool unique head sculpt. And though the majority hated Reverb it's because he's so damn unusual looking that makes him cool. He's got a cool handlebar (junkion-like) head and a sorta Power Rangers-like face. That pathetic little blade he had just had to go. So there you have it I think you need to have those 3, if not oh well...'nuff said! :VEHI:

I still want Reverb to be my Classics Rad.
Wouldn't mind Whirl too.
I have the Autobot versions of the HA Basics set up Vs my Decepticon PCCs in a Man Vs Machine Saturday Morning Cartoon scenario.
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Blurr, or 3rd Party iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.

The Rad homage? If it's not intentional, it's highly coincidental.

The PCCs having robots vs the HAs having (obviously enough) humans? I doubt that was planned out, but it's darn nice. I still want to write a comic where the EDC or some variation thereof teams with Autobots against the Decepticons and their Minicon and hologram partners.

I just re-realised this, as TRU UK have HA Basics back at £5.99.

The UK version of Sandstorm does not have a painted chest. Or at least, none of the ones I've seen at retail! Can any other European collector confirm?

I got mine from Kapow toys, and it has a painted chest. But...don't think I still have the box, so can't confirm if it is EU stock or not.

I got Whirl today. Still no Rad sightings. :(

My guess is that it's import. But I may be wrong.

If this is true, and there are less paint apps, has this happened before in US vs EU distribution?
(It seems to be the case that it is happening for the FE Prime US releases.)

At least the "hidden" mech mode makes up for it.

Whirl has the same thing. The front guns are unpainted on the EU versions. Any other confirmed variations between US and EU?
