With Hastak currently getting their asses handed to them by small collectives of Guys in Chinese garden-sheds I think a few barbs of well-aimed disrespect wouldn't be out of line in the grand scheme of things......
Please note I don't wish to call you out specifically, more like the line of thinking I've seen from multiple people.
Do I think Hasbro can make better figures than 3PPs? Yes. They have teams of designers who do this for a living. and have been doing it for years. The problem is the sustainability of such a practice. I, like most people who visit this forum, believe that many 3PP figures are better than alot of what we see from Hasbro, but that's because Hasbro can't afford to cater to us. It's a sad fact that they have to produce to children. I don't know many children who could deal with PE Reflector or FP's Defender and Hasbro and the 3PPs know this.
This is why I think calling Hasbro on it is disrespectful. It's saying to Hasbro "These guys can afford to spend as much time as they want to cater to our precise abilities and wishes and you can't [insert Nelson laugh]"
