Here's a look at the still-not-confirmed new Arcee, which may or may not be a Scout class figure but is definitely different from the Human Alliance and Deluxe ones (article has links to those others as well): http://tformers.com/transformers-ano...1925/news.html
The joints on that figure are definitely scaled to Scout-class. The robot mode looks better than the deluxe, which is kind of pathetic when you think about it.
I was at the Burbank TRU this afternoon and picked up an HABB. Someone else picked up the other one while I was there (are you on here?). Anyway, I too will add my praise to this awesome figure, who is fantastic with or without Sam.
To anyone else who has HABB, are you having trouble like I am with getting his chest to stay in place in robot mode?
No. Everything's fine here now. How are you?

I want HA Barricade (confirmed), SideSwipe (shown), Skids / Arcee (shown), Rampage (not even rumored), Sideways (not even rumored), Ironhide (really wishful thinking), Optimus Prime (beyond Hasbro's accecptable cost-range, I'm sure).
I guess I'll be buying Swerve, the red repaint of movie Sideswipe to make up for Sideswipe not being red in the first place.
Same for me, but Sideswipe was all kind of kick booty in ROTF. He is also one of my favorite of the deluxes.

I want a Leader Class Blackout (or call him Grindor - whatever).
I want a Leader Class (or at least Voyager class) BoneCrusher. (There was a mine clearing vehicle that looked just like him in ROTF's desert battle scene, too - but he probably got wasted by Ironhide, Ratchet, or Sideswipe.
I want a Human Alliance Ironhide with Mjr. Lennox.
I want a Human Alliance Mudflap with Simmons.
I want a Human Alliance (Decepticon) Rampage with (prisoner) Ron Witwicky.
I want a Human Alliance (Decepticon) Sideways with ally Alice (in human form).
I want a Scout Class Arcee.
I want it all and I want it right now!
I want that Leader Class Starscream too.
I would have preferred Hasbro made him available now, instead of Jetfire.
Human Alliance Sideswipe and HA Skids & Arcee:
Sideswipe's alt mode looks so cool, I love that gull-wing door. Bot mode is only fair, there's something simplistic, and the swords look crappy.
Skids looks whatever, it's bulky as hell. Arcee looks ridiculous, they actually mangled the vehicle mode to make it stand up, and it looks like the Chromia body, not Arcee.
I was at my local Toys R Us today and finally saw the HA Bumblebee. I took it up too the register and it rang up $34.99. I told the employee at the register that it couldn't be right. She looked it up and confirmed the price. I ended up putting it back.
Please tell me that's not the correct price. I realize TRU charges a slight bit more but I figured it would have been $19.99 tops.
It's MSRP is supposed to be $29.99, not $19.99.
