Most would agree that they are not "good molds" when compared to the quality and engineering of main line Transformers toys.
Ive never actually owned one so I cant speak on their quality control vs. the actual TF line. Im just saying there are alot of cool alt modes that transform into cool robot bodies from the crossovers lines. If they were repainted and re-tooled, there would be so many options for new homages instead of having doubles and triples of one mold on the classics shelf. Just seems like a big waste of molds to me. Im not into the whole super hero thing anyways, only Transformers.
Oh, I agree that they do look
visually appealing aesthetic-wise, but that's will the appeal mostly lies for these figures.
The problem is that they were very cheaply designed when compared to the actual Transformers toys. I own Ghost Rider and, while he does look visually stunning
, every time I play with this thing I'm scared I might break it with just the slightest nudge in the wrong direction.
And his transformation is just so simple! There's literally no challenge in it whatsoever. And he doesn't exactly want to hold together properly in either modes either. He still looks cool, but again, his coolness is only
in his looks.
Hasbro really dropped the ball on these toys and obviously just wanted to make a quick buck by throwing a bone to the Marvel crowd, even if that bone's the kind that squeaks when you squeeze it.
As cool as some of these molds look, they're too delicate and low quality to lie the same league as the main line TF molds.
