The seibertron.com galleries are ever expanding, especially now during our BotCon 2011 coverage as we learn and see more figures and other cool things. And now we get to see more Human Alliance and Human Alliance Basics figures, you know the line that actually has scaled figures and comes with human drivers/partners.
While we've already seen a couple of these, there are new figures like Drag-strip with Master Disaster and Crosshairs with Sargent Cahnay, an obvious homage to the racing driver "Auggie Cahnay" from the G1 season 2 episode "Trans-Europe Express".
You can click here to see the full gallery containing 55 images, but you can also click each of the below images to see a larger scale version.

I like these HA basics, they're pretty cool.

Man, Reverb looks amazing! I just hope that they mistransformed some parts of his legs, cause they look horrendous compared to the rest of him! :-(

Are Human Alliance Humans the new Mini-cons?

Your answer awaits in 2012.

I am LOVING the HA basics!

They are just a ton of fun to mess around with!

Reverb and Dragstrip look spectacular but still doesnt convinces me to buy any HA basics.Imma stick with the mechtech line only.

yeah, he rules Bartertown ;)

I know that was MasterBlaster, but this guy's a 'Con.

Anyway, these all look good. Reverd seems quite interesting. He looks like Action Master Rad. Dragstrip looks like a nice figure, although I'm not sure it needed the homage paint job, I'm not complaining about it either. Both of these guys human partners are cool too.

The best part of this lot is seeing more of Tailpipe and Pinpointer though, that's a freaking amazing set!

Reverb's giving me a M.A.S.K. Vampire vibe:

what does the red guy transform into?
someone said he transformed into a jetpack, which i can see
But i don't know anyone who has a mechtech port on their back, so it is pointless unless i am wrong, which i hope i am!

And Drag Strip makes 3 Stunticons in the movie line. C'mon Hasbro, just Scout-ish Wildrider and a Deluxe(/Voyager?) MotorMaster to complete the team.

Master Disaster looks somewhat translucent.

TOTALLY! I was going to post that the entire niche has been giving me a Transformers meets M.A.S.K. vibe, and that Reverb/Vampire comparison just nails it.

Reverb is cool. And yes, that definitely is a MASK homage... well, to a person looking for a MASK homage.

*MASK collection is on DVD this summer.*

Megatron does, so does almost all the car-formers.

how about now they do a human alliance optimus prime or a blackout
or something really cool like that

oh yeah, that too. The whole line is very MASK-y. Even Dragstrip, because of the Matt Trakker jet/F1 car they had. They should give Reverb's partner the name of a Visionary as well, and we'll have 3 homages in one package.

Wow. Aside from the MASK nostalgia, Reverbs alt mode is very Technobots inspired. I just might use that to shoehorn him into my Classics collection!

I loved Decepticon Dragstrip. I cant wait to buy him.

Im not a fan of the HA basics, checked out a couple of the ones my friend got and i think they're garbage but Dragstrip looks promising. Looks more like a homage of Beast Machines Mirage instead of Dragstrip. Reverb also looks cool, best thing about him is he looks like he could fit in the GIJOE universe. Wether or not they are worth $10 i still havent decided, HAs are over priced if you ask me they are scouts with a small human why are they 2 bucks more than the last scout pricing? Im not going to pay $2 more for a crappy human that i dont even want and most of the time isnt even to scale with the figure.

Hmm I see they still didn't bother to fix Crosshairs/Thunderhead's "hand" issue, it's great and all he can hold the gun sideways but it's not even the right direction like the cool kids hold it haha. The other two look decent enough.

Heck, I'd like to see someone attempt to repaint DOTM Megatron into Motomaster.

Drag Strip looks like a no brainer for a pick up to me. The repaint i'd say pass for sure.

Wow, you guys are right VERY M.A.S.K.
My problem is, were I live, it's all thunderhead and Icepick!
Weres the helicopter, minigun dude? Whirl, was it?
I want HIM!
Gotta say, Dragstrip looks BEAST!
word is, he turns into a shield? AWESOME!
My skyhammer's Sword was lookin a bit lonely! :KREMZEEK:
Seriously though, anyone else get a "Skyboom Shield" vibe? we just need a human alliance jet that turns into the star saber!HUGE Armada-Energon fan.
Cybertron was it's own series in japan, wich is way better and more well written in EVERY WAY! :-B Anyway, back on topic..
Reverb looks...
Well, Ill be honest.
He looks badass! like an upgraded junkian almost. his vehicle mode, motorcycle to wierd jetpack hoverbike thingy, well, he looks like what would happen if Power Rangers Ever were cool! 8)
Even though I have like 20 megazords.... don't judge me...

I'll definitely be picking up Reverb. He is looking really good. Dragstrip has monkey arms :(

Skip on the green repaint of Leadfoot - he's admittedly not a very good mold.

Want the rest!

dont forget a satellite or rocket or something that turns into the requiem blaster. ;)
that would be highly cool.
on a sort of relted not, I'm still waiting for a third party company to come up with a set(like the inside-of-the-ark one) of the hydra cannon, with space for the three ledgendary weapons...
