New TFClub listings on Asian auction site Taobao.com; this time, you can bid on Hasbro's upcoming Human Alliance Autobot Daredevil Squad and Flash Freeze Assault sets. These sets were originally revealed to us in official product images from Hasbro earlier this month. Each contains repaints of recently released DOTM Human Alliance figures along with repaints of HA or deluxe figures originally released in the Revenge of the Fallen toy line and a repainted human partner.

The Kmart exclusive Autobot Daredevil Squad contains what some will consider to be the most "colorful" repaint of a movie Bumblebee to date, a new twist on Cannon Bumblebee released in 2008, along with the DOTM Human Alliance figure Backfire with Spike who now sports painted-on body armor. This set appears to be loose so it does not look like it includes the patch the official release will get.

The other set, Flash Freeze Assault, contacts a slightly more toned down repaint of the Revenge of the Fallen HA Sideswipe, repainted DOTM HA Icepick, and repainted Major Tungsten now called Sergeant Chaos. It's still unclear if this will be a store exclusive or not.

There are lots of new images of the Autobot Daredevil Squad set, some of which are mirrored below. The auction listing for the set along with more images can be found HERE.

The listing for the Flash Freeze Assault set does not contain any new images but you can check out the auction post HERE.

Chaos looks like Ray from the Ghostbusters.

Both sets are ghastly.

I like the repaint of the Basic HA figure paired with BB, but I really have no need for another Cannon BB, even one with a funky paint scheme. If it was a better BB like Battle Blades (though I already have one) I would definitely consider it.

The BB and Sideswipe will end up in my nephew's collection.

I just noticed Icepick has the Autobot Alliance symbol on his front. Makes me wonder if he was meant to be a different character.

Those color schemes are an atrocious abomination.

Why not logical repaint colors? A red bumblebee? A Blue Sideswipe? But shit gray and neon green? Is Joel Schumacher running Hasbro now?

F-

Way to decimate the HA line, Hasbro. These will be warming shelves for months to come.

I really hope these DO become shelfwarmers.
If they do that, they eventually get cheap. :D

I want the Black Icepick repaint, but have no use for the HA Sideswipe.

If it was a DELUXE SS, I would HAPPILY add him to my ever growing sideswipe army, but I dislike the HA mold for him.

Yes, Icepick's a Decepticon. ;)

The more I look at Bumblebee, the more I seem to like his offbeat colors. Then again, that neon-colored Bumblebee from last year is also on my list... And why is there no K-Mart in Texas anymore?!

I really like both of these. They're great for "G2" Movie figures and will fit in really well with the crazy Target two packs from last year.

It IS deluxe SS. For whatever reason, they decided to use older deluxe molds in fancy colors that can't hope to hold their packin partners.

Wait, "sets"? You mean both are Kmart exclusives?

Oh, my mistake. That mold is god awful. It doesn't even look as difficult as the deluxe mold.

Wait, so they're charging the same price for a HA dlx+HA basic as they are for a regular dlx+HA basic?

what a horrible colorscheme :SICK: but the robot itself is somekind of frankestein.

Car- ROTF esque Sideswipe
Robot- 09 Cannon Bumblebee with a head that looks NOTHIN like any sideswipe versions ever released.

Grade- D+(Icepick seems ok but Sidebee/Bumbleswipe is fail)
