We have a couple of Transformers DOTM Human Alliance Basic retail sightings to pass along via our fellow Transformer fan site TFW2005. Drag Srip with Master Disaster along with the Sandstorm repaint Half-Track with Major Altitude were found at a Fred Meyers store in Washington by 0ptimus57993.

Reverb with Sergeant Detour was found at a Wal-Mart in Harlingen, Texas by TfAnimatedfan. The Thunderhead repaint Crosshairs with Sergeant Cahnay was nowhere to be found.

I've had Dragstrip for about a month now. I left Half Track on the peg. I found them in Aledo Illinois Walmart.

I actually picked up Half-Track today for $3.24 with the $5.00 coupon. Somebody beat me to Dragstrip though.

I'm still looking for Tailpipe, but the first wave isn't moving. They're worse shelf warmers than Tuner Mudflap.

I could give a crap less about these basic HA figures. Especially that industrial fan looking thing. Where are deluxe Mirage, Soundwave, Wheeljack, and Leadfoot ???

I wasnt really trying to come off as being rude. It's just when they came out with that industrial fan thing, it was like Hasbro saying we can sell anything and you guys will buy it. Insulting to kids and adult collectors alike.

Well, kids seem to like it, and of course the compulsive fans will get him as well ;)

Is this industrial fan you keep mentioning supposed to be Whirl? At least with him everything looks like it's supposed to, unlike Icepick. His weapon mode is supposed to be a chainsaw I think, but it looks more like a belt sander.

Reverb is the fan. I think it's supposed to be a shield, but it looks more like a fan system you would find in a big factory. Whirl is a helicopter and a gun

These guys need to be listed on the Product Listings page so that if more of them are spotted, then the rest of us would find out that way. Even DOTM HA Bumblebee and DOTM HA Skids aren't listed and they were the first two out in the larger vehicle line.

more interested in these due tothe weapon alt modes of some of them
from what i have heard, the Dragstrip shield looks pretty interesting in hand

I see these at the Warwick Mall Target and the RI Mall Toys 'R' us all the time. I think they're dumb, so I haven't picked any of them up.

On second thought, I may need that $5 off coupon.... LOL :D
I'm officially starting to buy into these guys. For their size, they have the same sort of detail/difficulty as I find on the voyagers, and on one or two, almost like the full-on/actual HA line. Which I really dig. And for those that aren't, I'm liking the alt modes, the weapon modes, or even some of the human molds (like one of them had the NEST armor we saw concept art of but never made it to film, which I was dejected about, looks totally amazing!)
There's still a few I haven't even thought of touching yet though, like Icepick. I'll have to gothrough these guys when I find em, and watch reviews on them to get a good idea who I want.

i absolutely loathe this HA basic line. these things arent even Transformers. they were meant to be another toyline like M.A.S.K. but figured they would cash in on the strong Transformers namesake and popularity. Shame on any Transformers fan that falls for this trick. Do you remember the song "Transformers... Robots in Disguise!!!" Well these things have an intro theme song too its more like "Shifting Crapbots... Robots with moving parts!!!" =; =; =; =; #-o

"One man's trash."
One benefit of the Transformers line is that, based on the fact that you're here, there's at least something about them that you have/will buy/like. There's plenty of figures I won't buy, and certainly am not interested in, but I won't call anybody out based on my opinion. :)


Depending on whether these guys get in my stores while the coupons are available, I may just collect the bunch just to have them. I've threatened to buy a good majority as an "armory" for LC Ironhide, and the coupons would certainly help. :)
